I loved the first dementium and i agree the Stylus controls were far more enjoyable and intuitive to use than a standard clunky analog stick. If RE: Revelations first person aiming in stereoscopic 3D is any indication, than we are in for an absolute treat....That is, whenever a solid FP-based 3DS title ever sees the light of day. Renegade kid has one in the works, but we wont be seeing it until mid 2014.

I don't really play or have any interest on first person shooters but I support the notion that every genre should be represented in the 3DS... I sometimes wonder if the lack of first person shooters is because a fps in stereoscopic 3D would be seizure inducing... maybe they can release one without 3D effect and devote all of the consoles powers to graphics........

Revelaitons works like a charm on 3DS, especially with the circle pad pro attached. It looks great in 3D, but since playing any game in 3D on the 3DS is optional, I don't see how that's even an issue in the first place.

I was really hoping we'd see more western 3rd party support in general, but it seems the big publishers jumped ship and are releasing all their hardcore portable titles on stupid mobile platforms, with no ports or any announcements for 3DS. Activision is all but missing. EA doesn't even exist. Everyone else is MIA as well and Nintendo doesn't seem to care enough to do anything about it. I guess as long as titles like Animal Crossing keep selling systems like gangbusters, they'll see no need to motivate themselves to change anything.

Because if anyone did indeed get a seizure, they'd sue? And honestly, I know I don't want to see bullets flying at me in 3D, seizure or no seizure. That'd be just too damn scary.

i thought, gyro-aiming is better than stylus aiming...

oh well, RE:Rev was the best shooter in terms of gyro aiming (because of accuracy)... how i wish the next shooter game for 3ds will take consider that feature...
next to best accuracy of gyro aiming is Face raiders... then Deer Hunting King...

if you guys know any shooter games that involves gyro aiming in 3DS, please tell me, i'm collecting those kind of games

I'm actually surprised we haven't seen at least one yet. I would have thought there would have been at least one COD by now (since they supported the DS).

It's personally not a big loss for me, though.

I didn't know there was such a thing as a good FPS. I haven't played one of those since the Doom/Quake era... Just buy a PS360 90% of their library is what you're looking for

3DS needs shooters like a fish needs a bicycle, to be honest.

Banned author should buy himself an XBOX 360 or PC. Tons of shooters on those systems!

As to KI:U, it didn't give me hand cramps, but it wasn't enjoyable to play because of the control scheme. Shame, because everything else about it is wonderful.

I'm actually quite surprise a COD game hasn't been released on 3DS yet.

I would love to play a good FPS on 3DS. I think they should have the option, as Kid Icarus does, to switch between Circle Pad Pro or use the touch-screen for second-analog controls. I think a Metroid Prime off-story would be good, a new IP, or various other titles.

It's not about encouraging shooters to the exclusion of other genres; variety is the goal here.
Just like how Nintendo's first-party games might sell a system, but they maintain a good rapport with gamers by nurturing a variety of 3rd party titles.

A nice mix of different genres isn't bad for any system, but I don't see first-person shooters working all that well in the first place. Third-person shooters, like Resident Evil and Kid Icarus, work perfectly even with just one stick. Besides, I find them more fun and interesting than the whole "point-and-shoot" down a barrel that FPS has become. TPS games can be so much more, as Uncharted has shown.

TPS >>> FPS any day of the week.

They offer different experiences... broaden the mindset, folks!
Kind of feel like my effort is wasted; certainly respect your opinion though.

You just summed up my entire life in one sentence.

While I must hold this to be untrue (or risk a similar indictment )... for our purposes here, I quite empathize.

I'd agree (somewhat) if we were talking about Wii U. The 3DS just isn't an ideal platform for shooters, though.
