This is a GREAT topic. I had a 3DS when they first came out, but got rid of it, for a few reasons (one, it was a tad uncomfortable.) I am so excited to be getting a 3DS XL tomorrow, and getting back in the swing of things. The XL is more comfortable in my hand, and the library of games is SO much better now that it's had some time to grow. About the recommendations, I know my first 2 games I am getting will be:

-Super Mario 3D Land
-Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

I was thinking about getting a couple more games a few months later, anybody have any ideas for games that would complement those games nicely?

From the fact that you seem to be getting the Mario or Luigi's game, it seems you might find Mario and Luigi: Dream Team going to be a choice, unfortunately, that one is going to be a long wait.

And so, I have played the MH3U demo, and found it as fun, although I still not get the control just right... yet. I like using the Dual Sword, and still not sure in whether or not I should get it, or just wait and see whether MH4 will be localized in NA or not.

Do you think MH3U is good for, well, newbies?

I'm pretty sure MH4 will come to the west! As for MH3U you should get it if you enjoyed it. The main game eases you into the game better then the demo did. It really is a good game and will take up no less then 100 hours of your time if that's what you're looking for!

Alright, I'm currently very tight on money, so I guess I'll see more on, whether I'll get the hang on the underwater escapades, which means I'll be able to defeat Plesioth on the demo, and I'll immediately try to buy it, if not, well, I'll save my money and get some of the other games I'm waiting on. :T It's just sad, why don't I just try the demo while I'm at Singapore and I can avoid all this agonizing choices. -Sighs-

Thanks for all the great replies everybody! Yeah Mario & Luigi: Dream Team has my interest because I LOVE that series, and really enjoyed Bowsers Inside Story. Also about RE: Revelations, it's amazing its only $17 on Amazon now. I am thinking I might order that in the next week or two just to balance out all the good wholesome fun I am getting with the Mario bros. I can't wait to pick up my XL tonight after work!

Also I have another "recommendation" question. What size SD card would everybody recommend? I have an 8 GB sdhc card lying around here I could use. Do people see themselves using up more than 8 gigs? If so, I could spring for a 16 gb card. I was trying to watch my $ a tiny bit, so maybe I figured I would just use this 8, and if it ever fills up, I can transfer, right?

@suburban_sensei You sure can transfer that data. I for one wish I picked up a 64 gig card as I've almost totally gone digital. As for your 8 gig, if you never get digital copies of retail game or maybe say less then 4 ever for the life of the system it should last the life of the system. 8gig is about 80000 blocks I believe and your average dl from the shop is around 400-2000 blocks.

@OldMan-Tech Thanks for the info! I have always been the type that likes physical copies, so I don't see me really using a TON of space on actual retail games. However with a portable system, having it already loaded on your system seems really convenient, so you aren't lugging around games. I would probably just buy a few Virtual Console games (only a few I see REALLY wanting when I look at the list of available games) and a few 3DSware games. Probably just stick with my 8 gig for now.

@suburban_sensei - If you can, I wait a couple months before getting a new card. SD Cards should be going on sale as part of "Back to School" sales stores run in late July/early August, and you can pick up a nice 32 GB Class 4 Card for around $25 then, though a Class 10 32GB one wouldn't be that much more expensive. As for brands, I'd recommend SanDisk ones and avoid Lexar ones; I've never had a problem with the former, but I encountered reading errors that would boot you out of playing a game with prolonged use of a Lexar card.

I still have a little money left over after buying a Wii U and have finally beat NSMBU. I am definitely buying Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but I was just wondering which game I should buy as I wait for that game to be released. I know it's only 10 days, but I really do need to extend my 3DS collection more than I have it at right now.

I've narrowed it down to Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Donkey Kong Country Returns. I will end up getting the other one later, and I've heard great things about both, but which should I buy right now?

I have been saving some cash and I was wondering, should I get Fire Emblem: Awakening or Pokemon Mystery Dungeons: Gates to Infinity? Please someone a recommendation.

@Toad160 I'm going to say the same thing I said about 2 weeks or so ago and you can't go wrong with either but if you haven't played DKCR yet then get that first. You're obviously a platformer and its one of the best ever! Luigi's mansion is also great but just a mark below imo.

@SirFrancisBacon if you go by scores alone Fire Emblem blows PMD out of the water. What it comes done to is if you really like pokemon then get that but if you like strategy games even in the slightest get Fire Emblem as it will go down as one of the best games this year on any system. Both have demos in the eshop you know!

Star Fox 64 3D and Mario Kart 7 are both excellent.

So after getting hooked on Guardian Heroes on XBLA, and finding out that Code of Princess is very similar I am thinking of picking it up. Only thing though how active is the online community and would it be worth it picking it up now for 20 dollars?

I have Pokemon Black II but am considering the earlier iterations (Black I/White I). I know that by purchasing White I, I will obtain the same legendary Pokemon that is found in Black II (which I own). How about wild Pokemon though? Are they the the same in both? I'm still unsure whether I should purchase Black I or White I. Which should I purchase? Please keep in mind however, that as stated before, I already own Black II.

That sounds like something you could research yourself here. I've only played Black 2 myself, so I couldn't tell you the differences between Black and White or 1 and 2.

is heroes of ruin worth playing? I can get it for 19.99 at futureshop. Just not sure I really want it. I've played the demo and liked that, but I'm not sure it's worth the money.

Want: Ultra Sun/Moon, Fire Emblem Warriors, Pokémon Gold/Silver, Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Super Mario Odyssey, Kirby Star Allies, and many others.

Stuck between 3 main games: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Animal Crossing New Leaf and the new Harvest Moon. Hmmm.

Also, has anyone played FIFA on the 3DS? Contemplating getting that eventually, if the graphics are up to par.

So I have around $20 saved up, and am looking to spend it next week, and my options are:

  • Resident Evil: Revelations (looks fantastic, and I enjoyed the demo, but for some reason, it just doesn't really excite me)
  • Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (owned in the past, and miss it. Tempted to grab it again, but dissuaded knowing that I'd be opting out of a new experience)
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition (same issue as above listing. I own DOAD though, so I already have a fighter I enjoy)
  • Nintendo eShop Card for Zelda Oracles & Starship Damrey (tempting, but it's been about six months since my last retail purchase, and I'm running low on SD card space, too)

(I'd be much more excited for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate, Code of Princess, Etrian Odyssey IV, NSMB2, or Fire Emblem: Awakening, but none of those have dipped below $30 yet, from what I've scouted).

So, which of these choices sound like the best bet? (other suggestions are welcome)

Wait another week or two until you get enough to buy Fire Emblem, that's all you need. But you could go with Option 4 if you want to, especially with the discounts for both zelda games.
