Is Amazon.co.uk still the cheapest way for European customers to get Nintendo's 1st party 3DS games?

Also additional question regarding shopto.net, is there something suspicious about that site or is ok since they have sometimes quite good deals? I got my Castlevania yesterday, but it was not sealed and wrapped in plastic like new games are always. Everything inside was intact and I didn't see any wear&tear or fingerprints inside. However there was no Club Nintendo points voucher inside like there usually is with Nintendo platform games. Does Castlevania LoS:MoF come with the points voucher or not? If it does then somebody in that shop took it from the box before shipping it.

I got a 3DS XL about 3-4 weeks ago and I've been trying to keep myself at bay and not buy too much and instead actually play the games I have. So far I got Ghost Recon Shadow Wars the great Julian Gollop's game, Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros and Castlevania LoS: MoF. These will keep me busy for a long time, but I'll keep my eye out for the several 1st party classics.

I would prefer a game with a strong story as well as fun gameplay. Other suggestions are welcome, RPG preferd, please be detailed about which game you suggest.

Those three games are great.

I can't tell you about RPG because I haven't played one yet although I've just bought Tales of the Abyss.
If you want an interesting (not good) story and fun gameplay you can't go wrong with Resident Evil: Revelations. The campaign is twelve hours long but with missions, different dificulties and the great assault mode it could last you much more.

I also liked a lot Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate but it is a divisive title and it will last you a lot less.

Amazon is completely legit and normally the cheapest.
As for Castlevania, it came with Club Nintendo points and it's normally sealed.
You got robbed, but they are normally a legit site so I'm not sure why they did that, it's probably because of the buy three get the fourth free game promo Europe did.

Its ok if you can get it cheap. I was hoping it was more like an MMO and would last 100s of hours but sadly you can do everything in like 30 or so hours and that's leveling all 4 character! There is fun to be had though and if you can find someone to play with then its value goes even higher.

Quick question now, would Nintendogs + cats be worth my time? Might as well ask,

Which might end up being the most lengthy and fun?

Nintendogs + cats
Monkey Ball
or Pilotwings?

Monkey ball has unlimited fun. It has a original mode which took me 3 months, there's a mario cart and a street fighter game mode and you use palsy coins to unlock cats.there's 3 Grand Prixs and these game modes are DS download. It can get boring after a while and can't be traded in for much.

The lie is the cake!

At first I was confident in asking for ALBW for Christmas, but after playing the M&L:DT demo today, I'm not sure which one I want to ask for...

DT's art direction is absolutely gorgeous, and my goodness the two boss battles included were pretty awesome (especially the dream Bowser fight). The gimmicks you get to play around with in the dream world are also a lot more enjoyable than I thought they'd be.

On the other hand, ALBW is a follow up to one of my favorite Zelda games of all time, it's getting a bit better critical reception, and I'm interested in what connection it has to MM.

So, I should ask, which should I ask for?

Well given the fact that they are Mario and Zelda games you can rule out price drop on either of them anytime soon. I personally would go with ALBW cause it too is a sequel to my favorite Zelda. Other then that its hard to say.

I'm looking for some cheap stuff on amazon (shipping them to Poland so package is around 10-30 bucks alone hence my choice for cheaper stuff) and I just saw that there are some good deals on MGS3D, Ghost Recon and Shinobi. What is the public opinion on all of them ? They would cost me about 20, 25, 15 $ respectively.
It would be also great if someone had advice on importing games to Europe, as I'm tired searching for cheap games only to find out that the seller doesn't do international shipping or charges 40 bucks for that.

You can't go wrong with Metal Gear or Shadow Wars. Both are excellent games but very different. Ghost Recon is more like Fire Emblem and Metal Gear is a third person shooter or stealth game if you will!

Hi guys! I live in Europe and I'm looking for a niche JRPG 3DS game and I'm leaning towards "SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked" and "SMT: Devil Summoners Soul Hackers". I have these JRPG's (even some of them may not be strictly JRPG's): "Tales of the Abyss", "Fire Emblem: Awakening", "Etrian Odyssey IV", "Pokémon X" and "Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate". I'm not interested in neither "Mario&Luigi" nor "Bravely Default" (it isn't my cup of tea because I prefer a darker plot).

In addition, I also have "Devil Survivor 2" (DS) but I'm stucked in my first 3 hours. I'm unable to win random grinding battles because I get wiped out easily. I think I've not fully understood the battle system because I had no problem in completing Persona 4 (PS2) in normal difficulty back when I played it :/ As I've read SMT:Overclocked has an "easy mode", that's why I may get it.

I really want to experience a great plot: I can forgive other aspects of the games, but the plot is one thing that gets me engaged when playing a JRPG. And it's defintely a pity SMT IV or Rune Factory IV (or event EO: Untold!!) haven't arrived yet here...

Thank you so much in advcance! :D

Currently playing: Persona 4 Golden (Vita), Persona (PSP), Disgaea 3 (Vita), Yumi's Odd Odyssey (3DS), Devil Survivor Overclocked (3DS).
Recently finished: Pokémon X (3DS), Persona 3 Portable (PSP), Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS), Virtue's Last Reward (3DS).

@reborn I can't speak much about Soul Hackers as I've only played about 3 hours of it. Overclocked however is one of my favorite 3ds games out of about 30 I own. Its mostly because of the story too! With the fully voiced story and pretty good voice acting it drew me in and I love it! I say go with that one!

Hey everyone.
I'm wanting to try a new action/adventure/whatever game and I'm currently choosing between Senran Kagura Burst and Monster Hunter 3U.
The thing is, I'm leaning more on SKB because I think I'd enjoy the single player more (and I like the characters. something about them makes me really drawn towards the game, wink wink). I don't have any friends to play MH3U with, so I don't think I'll enjoy it that much. I am going to get both, but I will likely get one of these, Super Mario 3D World, and in a few months, get the other. I wanna know what I should buy first, or if I should just wait a year for MH4.

Currently playing: Gods Eater Burst, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm (Closed Testing).
Things I probably should be making progress on: Rune Factory 4, Mario Kart 8, Tomodachi Life, Wind Waker HD.

@Cyb3Rnite Well, I can't say anything about the other game, but know this: Monster Hunter 3U requires a LOT of time to make progress, so If you have a job with long hours, or school or something, then you probably won't be getting very far. The online play is quite enjoyable, but if you get the 3DS version, you'll need a Wii U to do so.
