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.

Note that I haven't played New Leaf, so I can't comment on it, but I just picked up Fire Emblem: Awakening a few days ago, and am loving it.

It can get tough (I'm only 7 chapters in, and have had a couple tough times), but it does add new things which might make it less frustrating.

You can attach a weaker troop to a stronger one, where they won't be targeted, and in some cases perform a combo attack with the stronger unit, which gives them a share of the EXP (meaning it's easier to level up weaker guys).

Just make sure you attach (support) the weaker guy to the stronger one, and not the other way around. (oh, and the more two units are paired up, they build a stronger bond that gives them stat boosts, when fighting together)

There's also a new "Casual" mode, where any of your troops that die return after the battle, instead of being dead for good.

Other than that though, it's simply a magnificent game, with that classic FE gameplay, and some wonderful visuals.

I'm new to the SMT franchise, but I really want to try one of the games! Overclocked is already released in my region, but it'll be a pain to track down. So I was thinking of waiting for Soul Hackers or SMT IV, since they're more likely to be digitally released as well. Which of those games would probably be best for a newbie to the series?

Sidenote: Persona 4 Golden is also a no brainer when/if I get a Vita. I might just turn into a massive Atlus fan :O

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

@Magikarp Overclocked is worth tracking down!! If that's not an option then Soul Hackers is a good choice but does seem a bit old by todays game standards. The best option other then Overclocked is wait for SMT IV.

@Magikarp I'm not too sure about digital releases for those games. They're rare for a reason. :P

Soul Hackers was released digitally in NA so it would be safe to assume that it will be the same for EU. Also SMT IV is also set to be released on the eShop here in NA.

looking forward to Yoshi's Woolly World, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Fossil Fighters Frontier, Story of Seasons and Kirby & the Rainbow Curse.

Ok, so this topic may have already been beaten to death... but i'm just looking for some quick honest opinions. My birthday is in a week and i've had a heavy decision on my mind for quite a while now... I spend ALL of my money on food and bills... and hookers(it really is a problem, i know) So i only get something of significant value every year or two. Should i get a 3DS XL or a Wii U?

I was able to buy a 3DS last Christmas and it's magnificent, of course. Still have a lot of games to pick up.. but the screen is small in comparison, and my hands are a bit big for long plays (even with the grip attachment). I would love to really be able to appreciate some of these beautiful visuals on a bigger screen. So with the 3DS's insane library.. and Wii U's hope of what i'm sure will be too.. Which should i get now..

I know i will absolutely pick up a Wii U eventually, but i'll also definitely have to get a PS4 too. So with games both current, and near future taken into account.. which would you suggest? Which would really be worth the investment for say the next 6-8 months.. until i can pick up the other.. or more if my financial situation doesn't improve.. haha

Thank you. Much appreciated.

Thanks guys! I might hold out for SMT IV then, since all the press about that game is getting me excited :D (I'll probably have to wait until late next year though, but Bravely Default will hold it off)

and @FleetwoodMackin , TMI about how you spent your money. I'm going to assume you're trying to decide between 3DSXL and WiiU from your other thread. I'd suggest a WiiU if you have any interest in the currently released/soon to be released games, like NSMBU or Pikmin 3. If you want it for future titles like Mario Kart or SSB4, it'll probably be better to wait until then.

I've heard a few rumours that the 3DSXL is poorly constructed and suffers from hinge issues, but I figure that'll get fixed in the later models. I'd suggest waiting until the games you want for WiiU to come out, and to save your money until then. There's a lot of good stuff on 3DS, but unless the original is so uncomfortable that you can't play it, I wouldn't really recommend buying an XL.
