I have to say I'm still playing my 3DS very regularly, though I'm keen to get into the eShop content. Hurry up with that update, Nintendo!

I'm mainly playing Ghost Recon at the moment. God it's a long game, but it's immersive and there's plenty of content even after the campaign is finished. I'm currently absorbed with a re-run of the campaign on the hardest difficulty setting. I dip into SSFIV and Ridge Racer every now and then. I'm on 97% completion in Ridge Racer, the last events are pretty tricky...

I think the potential for 3DS is fantastic though, and we'll have the eShop and Zelda released pretty close together, so I'm really looking forward to that.

Fun, but definitely overpriced for the curent game line up and features available so far. But again, it's fun, and the 3D is really unique and I'm glad I bought it and I know I'll love it after OoT Kid Icarus, Mario Kart, Paper Mario, Tales of the Abyss, and the eShop/VC come out. :)

DS games play on it just fine and the D Pad is great! :)

I'm looking forward to the Summer releases.

I am still loving mine. When the eShop opens and we get some AAA titles like Zelda, Star Fox, Mario, etc. There will be more love. Glad I got mine now before the library gets really good and more people start buying them, making them harder to find. Also happy to finally play through Rayman. Great game, can't believe I never finished it before!

I've been without my 3DS for about two weeks. It is currently being repaired by Nintendo. I enjoyed it while I had it though and I am anxious to get it back. My only disappointment is being one of the unlucky people that ended up with a defective system.

The launch games are pretty good, and the built in content is fantastic. I finally completed one of the Streetpass puzzles, and it looks amazing. I am quite satisfied, up to the point where the e-shop is like a nice bonus. Great job Nintendo!

This is a signature.

@Axoloth... The 3D wouldn't stay at a set level and it didn't project correctly. I didn't notice this until I swapped the system out for a new one. The sound issue was that the speakers make a crackling sound, at some pitches and this happened even when the sound was at low levels. Then I had the glorious black screen like most everyone else, but mine happened constantly.

It is called buying a system at launch. Always play them constantly if it is a launch system to find out if it is defective. It will usually happen pretty quickly. Mine was fine for a few weeks and then the problems just kept coming.

Not had any system issues with mine (bought on day one) though I do have a slightly loose hinge that I have learned to live with. If it takes the pressure off the fitting and prevents a DS Lite style crack, then I can make do. I still get the impression that the 3DS was supposed to be released in June, when the eShop was ready and more of the major titles. I guess the launch was changed to make sure the iPad 2 didn't steal too much portable gadget thunder. I've been getting a lot of use out of Street Fighter and StreetPass, the novelty of the 3D effect hasn't worn off either. After a tweek in the options settings, I've the 'sweet spot' just perfect for my eyes and I still play with it on (about 60% of the way on the slider). I'm starting to get itchy for some new games though, especially from the eShop, so roll on 'late May.'

haven't used it much lately to be honest...i open it every 2 days to play a couple more minutes of Find Mii (final boss has like 9 HP left--bout to see what happens once I complete the whole tower!) and I break it out on occaision to show people 3d pictures, but I haven't played a full game on it in a while. SF4 got old pretty fast for me, Monkeyball I played all of in both Race and Challenge modes (Fight did little for me), Pilotwings has gotten to that irritating combo of frustrating and stale when it's not enough fun to stick with to three-star some of the later events, and I haven't gotten around to beating Shadow Wars yet. It'll get a lot more use once Mercs 3D comes out.

Slapshot...you have a new 3DS Friend Code? I must still have your old code...that's why it looks like you haven't used your 3DS in over a week!

@Scypher
Games like Pac-Man and Galaga, Dream Trigger, and cubic ninja all look like solid titles but not "grade A" titles. I use the term grade A because I hate the term AAA btw. I'm talking about an A+ looking game. Like a major franchise game, like a Take 2 Interactive game that's NOT Carnival Games, or even better, an original franchise that's worth the hype. Yeah, DOA Dimensions falls in the A+ catagory quite possibly but there aren't too many games other than that from 3rd parties.

Also I think that online play has been nixed from DOA also meaning they didn't bring their "A game" to deliver a complete console level experience.

Yeah, and it is nearly impossible to track everyone down to let them know. I really hate the Friend Code deal. I had 40+ friends before the system swap and now I have like 5. :(

Oh and I haven't fully played through the content that came with it yet...

One month later and everyone is still stupidly obsessed with the 3DS. This could be a bigger issue than I thought.

I just got mine about a week ago, and the feature that I use most as of right now is the Activity Log. It somehow gives me a reason to play my games more...I also use the Sound application since I like listening to meh music while on the road.

And is it just me or does anyone else like the song video that came along with the update (White Knuckles/ OK Go song)? I love it, in fact, I'm going to download the mp3 right now, lol.

No 3DS games yet, but I'm searching for some friends!

That sound thing happens all the time when playing Rayman. D:
And I often feel like the 3D is acting up like that when playing Pilotwings. D:
And now you've made me overthink things, ffffuuuu D:

I have a Backloggery now! Nothin' fancy, but feel free to add me as a friend.
