@RR529 Yeah, my GameStop was out of TotA.

It was really between Steel Diver and Pilotwings, as my Mom only had $5 in her wallet. Alas, I'm already about a quarter way done with Mission Flight Mode. I should be finished with it by Friday or Saturday. What do you suggest I do then in terms of selling it and things like that?

Just checked Target, and Heck no! Whereas GameSop has it for $29.99, Target is selling it for (pretty outrageous i.m.o.) $36!

How is $36 outrageous? It started out as a $40 game, and pound for pound, RPGs give you more bang for your buck than nearly any other genre.

If you don't have the funds for it, I don't fault you for skipping over it for the better deal, but to say $36 is outrageous, is a little over the top, IMO.

The only reason I said that is because GameStop usually has the 2nd highest or highest price for all 3DS games.

Target has a bunch of buy one get X game for X amount deals and considering I payed 42$ for Tales at gamestop, I'd say hop on that deal quickly because the game is awesome.

They always seem to have one going on in video game deals. Just take on of their weekly things they send to everyone's mailbox and their in store promotions. Am I the only person who finds coupons for games?

Hello everyone!

I'd like some advice on the "So Many Games" promotion. My brother, my sister and I all have our own 3DS, and we're trying to make the most out of the deal. My brother got Luigi's Mansion 2, Castlevania and Fire Emblem; he's getting Animal Crossing as a free download. I got Fire Emblem too, I'm getting a physical copy of Animal Crossing for my sister, and I'll be getting AC as a free download as well.

I'm still not sure what my fourth game will be. Here are the candidates:

  • Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins.
    I've tried a bunch of Lego demos (on the 360 and on the 3DS), but I haven't been impressed by any of them so far. They all feel very basic, and I don't have any particular attachment to the brand--I like the bricks, but that's it.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon — Gates to Infinity
    Haven't played a Mystery Dungeon before. The demo for this one didn't exactly thrill me.
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
    I've already finished it on the Wii, and while I loved it, I'm not sure getting it a second time would be worth it. Eight new levels is not much, and they don't look very original.
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    I've played it on the Wii but haven't got very far, because I found it hard to adapt to the control scheme. Having tried the 3DS demo, it looks even worse (especially since I don't have a Control Pad Pro). I could give it another chance, but I need to know if it's playable without a Control Pad Pro--if I have to pay an extra 15€ to get it, the deal isn't so interesting any more.

There. Does someone have an opinion on which game I should get? It'll basically be my real "free" game, but I'd still like to make the right choice. I can get DKCR3D and Mystery Dungeon for 10€ less than the others, by the way.

Thanks for your help!

Most of the people on this forum seem to be playing MH3U without the CPP. It's also fairly popular.

@Waann What did you use to control tri with? Wii remote and chuck or ccp? I will say for MH:U that I do now have the cpp for my xl but other then the water battles on land the controls were fine. Most here like was said above will say the controls are fine for under water as well but I would disagree. You can get by but that wasn't enough for me. I wanted the full camera control experience so I had to have the cpp! The only other problem I see with you getting Monster Hunter is did you even like tri? If the only thing holding you up was the controls I will say its definitely worth getting use to them as this is one of the biggest and best games for your money content wise. Plus this game looks darn fine on the 3ds!

@Ralizah @OldMan-Tech I see. It's definitely the game that interests me the most out of the four. And for such a huge game, having it on a hand-held could be pretty comfortable.
@OldMan-Tech I did like the feel of the world. The other reason why I didn't play it much is down to circumstances--I had a huge backlog and not much free time, otherwise I'd probably have put a little more effort into learning how to play it. I used a CCP.

I think I've made up my mind. I'll play it without the CPP, and if I'll get it if I feel that it's needed. Thanks a lot for your answers!

If you think that's outrageous, wait until you see the Amazon prices...

You may like the lego game you may not. Get monster hunter, you can get the rythym down fairly quickly, its great on the 3DS. No one can tell me otherwise. I think the CPP is a rather superfluous attachment in the long run. Only game I could see myself buying it for is Metal Gear

I want to replay Resident Evil: Revelations with the CPP XL one day. Honestly, the game controlled perfectly fine without it, but it would be interesting to try a different control scheme. It would probably really improve MH3U. Snake Eater 3D is virtually impossible to play without it.

Did you try gyro controls with it. I found them much more accurate and didn't lose the 3d much at all when the sensitivity was up really high!

So, I have yet to get Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, but am interested in obtaining it. Problem is, I also want to get Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D when it comes out. I don't have enough disposible income set aside for both at the moment, however. So, for anyone with prior experience with Dark Moon and the Wii version of DKCR, which should I get?

Well to be honest the 3DS version of DKCR will have alot more content than the Wii version so I dont know if you can compare that one to LM:DM.

I'm more concerned about gameplay.

So I'm assuming you haven't played DKCR then right? Wow this is a tough one. Both are great games. For me DKCR plays more like rayman Origins then a Mario game which is a good thing imo. I guess you can't go wrong with either choice but just ask yourself would you rather play a great 2d side scroller in 3d or a slower but fun ghost catching game with puzzle elements! I ask myself which I rather have right now knowing and playing both and I would slightly lean towards DKCR and I'm not the biggest 2d side scroller fan if you can't tell!
