Having trouble deciding a new 3DS game. I'm just split between LM: Dark Moon and AC: New Leaf.
I'm leaning towards New Leaf, but I'm not sure if the game's real-time system is gonna be right for me, since I do such different hours. Can anyone tell me how much I'll be missing out on if I usually play after 7 or so? (3:30 at earliest)

With Animal Crossing, if you are worried about town shops closing before you can get to them, it shouldn't be a problem since the game allows you to set town ordinances (night owl,etc) which allows the shops to stay open much later. You can google it for more info. Also, you should get quite a few people to join online in the evenings. I do a lot of play during the evenings and I am in a pal region (europe etc). I would imagine other regions are the same.

I've only had the game from 14 June. I am already on 70hrs and there is still LOTS for me to achieve. I haven't played Luigi's mansion yet, so I can't comment on that.

So, a couple months ago I mentioned that I had saved up $20, and was asking whether or not I should get Resident Evil: Revelations, Super Street Fighter IV, or Samurai Warriors: Chronicles. Well, I decided to save up, so now I have a little over $40!

So now, I'm thinking about different games (preferrably an RPG, for length reasons). Should I get:

Fire Emblem: Awakening - Adored the demo, and is what I'm leaning towards.

Project X Zone - I enjoyed the demo, but not quite as much as FE:A. However, I love crossovers, and this seems to be crazy fun.

Etrian Odyssey IV - I enjoyed the demo, but I prefer story driven RPGs. I'm willing to reconsider though.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate - Not an RPG, I know, but I enjoyed the demo, and it interests me.

I'm willing to accept other suggestions, but these are the four I'm really looking into. As for RPGs, I already have Tales of the Abyss, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, & Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.

@GTWarrior77
Thank you very much for the info! I guess I'll probably be getting New Leaf as my next 3DS game (Might be a while though, with new systems and all)

@RR529 I can recommend Fire Emblem: Awakening. Over 100 hours and haven't even gone past Normal... (Trying to 100% the support log takes awhile)

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

I'd say grab Project X Zone while you can still get the bonus. If you enjoyed the demo, you'll enjoy the full game even more.

Fire Emblem should probably be your next choice. It's meaty and casual-friendly for the uninitiated.

Etrian Odyssey IV is great, but if you want a story-oriented game in the series, Millenium Girl is coming out in the fall, so you might as well save up for that.

Castlevania will be their, and will likely be cheaper later on.

I have some extra money so I need some recommendations. I like most genres and I really enjoyed the project x zone demo.

Thanks for all the replies!

It comes down to Fire Emblem: Awakening & Project X Zone, and I think I'm going for the former.

After playing both demos again, I personally find FE's layout & setup more enjoyable, and I know I'll have the option to extend my time with it with DLC at a later date, if need be.

Hopefully I'll be able to pick it up by Sunday.

Good choice. FE:A is among the best games on the system.

I'm going on a trip this week, filled with long car rides and I want to get myself a retail game to pass most of the time.
I got New Leaf, but since I usually don't play for hours and hours on end I wanted something else.
(I already have FE:A, MK7, Rhythm thief, ss:t, oot 3d, Lm:dm, hm a new beginning and pm:ss.)

I'm open to try anything. Thank you ^^.

Would Tales of the Abyss be up your alley? It's been my favorite 3DS game so far.

I'm in the same boat as Konata. I've also got for to many games to list out here (and my Backlog is way out dated), just put out a list and if I have any games that you listed I'll let you. Project X Zone looks fantastic and enjoyed the demo. I have also been interested in Paper Mario, MHU3D and a few others. I would like something with a bit of meat on it though...

Etrian Odyssey IV is a meaty RPG adventure.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is a fantastic platformer, and after you complete the main game you can spend hours just searching the levels for puzzle pieces.

Devil Survivor: Overclocked is a huge strategy RPG with tons of content. The game has multiple endings, and requires several playthroughs to access all the content. Even one playthrough will keep you busy for a while. I'm not even fully finished with my first playthrough and I'm over 70 hours in to the game.

Super Mario 3D Land is another superb platformer and the best Mario-related game on the system thus far.

I've stumbled upon a late graduation present and can afford to buy two 3DS games. So far I only have Animal Crossing (And Cave Story, from the eshop) and I'm trying to decide between Starfox 64 3D, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario Kart 7, and Super Mario 3D Land for my next couple games. Which are the best?

@Konata
@Neo-GeoFan
Hope I'm not a little too late to the party here, but I would absolutely recommend Tales of the Abyss 3D. The story is engaging, the characters are extremely memorable, the game's world is large and engrossing, and the game mechanics are just stellar. I just can't recommend the game enough. I can only remember 2 or 3 times I choked up with man tears, this game was one of them. Definately in my top 5 games. It's one of the games that blows my mind how they made it so good. Easily, easily, the best 3DS game out now, IMO. A pinnacle of RPG perfection, if you're asking me.

Also, did I mention Tales of the Abyss 3D?

@Jeff_Steelflex
Haven't played SF3D or MK 7, but personally, I highly recommend DKC Returns in general. Just another amazing game to add to Retro's record. But, now I know this is the 3DS recommendations thread and all, It's probably a bit cheaper on Wii (Just thought I'd say it, in case you're like me and don't care about having it portable)

I've only played the Wii version, but I'd say DKCR3D for sure from those you listed.

As for you're second, I'd say SM3DL from the list you gave, but I'd recommend OoT3D, Tales of the Abyss, KH:DDD, PM:SS, MGS3D, DOAD, or Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy over it.

Super Mario 3D Land and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D are the best games on that list, but they're both platformers, so you might want to combine one of them with Mario Kart 7.

Starfox 64 3D is awesome, and looks miles better than the original SF64, but keep in mind that, unlike Mario Kart 7, it has no online multiplayer functionality.
