Ummm... coming to the end of Fire Emblem and need something new on 3DS to take over my life : /

Have never played any of the Shin Megami Tensei games but veeeeeeeeery curious, for a newbie to the series which is recommended, Devil Survivor Overclocked or Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers? Have read reviews but undecided.

In Europe so having to wait for Shin Megami Tensei IV, but would like to make a start on one of the above... thoughts?

Thankyouverymuch!

Different types of games, despite both being the SMT franchise. Soul Hackers is a first-person dungeon crawler with a cool cyberpunk theme but a very retro design (this is a re-release of a Sega Saturn game with some added cinematics, voice acting, etc., but very little done in the way of modernizing the graphics, to be clear). Devil Survivor: Overclocked is an interesting mix between a turn-based RPG and a strategy game. They're both awesome. Overclocked has more content with multiple-endings and New Game Plus stuff. I felt Soul Hackers was a more gentle game. With Overclocked, It is very easy to stumble into an end-game path that is obscenely difficult the first time through, which is something to be mindful of. Moreover, there are several missions that are only hard because you're tasked with protecting characters that are determined to get themselves killed.

Also, if we're talking about SMTIV, Soul Hackers is better preparation, as several elements of it are closer to the core series, with things like dungeon-crawling and demon-negotiation.

They're both good games, though.

I think it is a bad idea to Overdose on SMT. Get Etrian Oddysey IV, it's a hardcore JRPG, yet differently styled. It can consume your life too...

Thanks for the suggestions, by the sounds of it the turn based strategy of Overclocked may be an overdose after Fire Emblem, as for Etrian Odyssey... it looks great but very little character development by the looks of things.. also the US getting it for $20 whilst full price in Europe? Maybe later :)

Thanks again.

Get new leaf, it has more content. Mario kart is fun, but AC is an obsession, and a good one at that. It will addict you though...

Both are good games. Animal Crossing New Leaf is the kind of game you play everyday and has tons of stuff to do and unlock. Mario Kart 7 is a good racing game. My son and I have logged a lot of time into both games. It just depends on whether you want to play a life sim (Animal Crossing NL) or a racing game.

looking forward to Super Smash Bros, Yoshi's Woolly World, OR/AS, Hyrule Warriors, Theatrhythm Curtain Call, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Pokémon Art Academy, Bayonetta 2, Fantasy Life, PL vs AA, Persona Q, and Story of Seasons.

I am looking for a new platformer for my 3DS. I'd like to be able to download it. I have New Super Mario Bros. 2, DKCR:3D, VVVVVV, Mutant Mudds, Might Switch Force, Gunman Clive, Super Little Acorns, Bike Rider DX, and various other ones that I can't think of at the moment.
To be a little more specific, I am NOT a big fan of Mega Man-type platformers or any that focus more on the killing the enemies. I enjoy ones that are more Mario-like or Sonic-like. Oh, and I thought Power of Illusion could have been great and ended up not so due to the painting element.
Right now I am look at Rabbids Travel in Time because it seems like the only one left that I haven't tried. (Oh, I've played most of the games on the Virtual Console already due to owning them on the original system or downloading them onto my Wii.)
Okay, now that I have given probably too much information, can anyone please make some recommendations? Thanks in advance.

Some of my favorite games:
Ghost Trick, StarFox 64, WarioLand: Shake It, Kid Icarus, The Legendary Starfy, Endless Ocean: Blue World, Zelda: Minish Cap, Pokemon Snap, Diamond Trust of London, Gyromite, Katamari Damacy, EarthBound, Mario Kart 7, and Sonic Generations(PS3).

Definitely get Super Mario 3D Land. It's one of the best games on the system.

I haven't played it but the impression I've gotten from the series is it's a school anime based RPG with a soccer/football motif. The football part is the "battle system" so to speak. So if you're into those type of things then it might be worth at least renting. I'm interested in it as well even though I'm also not a fan of the sport but unfortunately, there hasn't been a NA version yet. :(

Downloaded it from eshop, its feels like I am playing a classic cartoon show, its actualy fun, aside from those scenes of doom showing up after a super attack

Personally I would say 5$ it wasn't really all that fun for me.probably the weakest Nintendo game in a very long time. Parrascope mode is fun for a little while though.

If you don't play it, you'll be able to sell it for $40 in a few years. If you do play it, you'll be in for a good time. I'd say it's worth it either way.

Doesn't talk about games.
