@Cyb3Rnite No, you don't. There should be a free app which'll connect you that you can find on the Wii U eShop with a little bit of searching. But if you're pressed down with homework or studying, you shouldn't get it. The gam is more designed for people with LOTS of time on their hands, where a normal play session consists of 5-6 hours. The game is still pretty good, though.

@UnknownNico My schedule's usually 1-3 hours daily, and 12+ hours on weekends. 5-6 is way too much on regular days, and to be honest, I have no friends to play with aside from my internet buddsies. How's the single player?

@Cyb3Rnite Okay, I guess. Prepare to go to the same couple of places over and over again. It is, however satisfying to kill the monster you've been chasing for the past 10 minutes. The armor looks aesthetically cool. But about the areas, they're split up into different sections. When you go to a different section, the game has to load.

@Cyb3Rnite No you only need the Wii U version to go online. The 3ds version can go online but you need a special modem and the Wii u version to do so so iits not worth it! I will tell you though that the 3ds version is more then worth it solo. I've put just over 100 hours into it and can easily put another 200 hours just to finish it. Its still loads of fun just single player as you do get computer help a little ways into the game. I'm not sure about the other game either but I have no interest in it at all!

@UnknownNico I've played the demo, and I think it's really fun. It was a bit tedious, though. Reminded me a lot of Gods Eater, though I'm pretty sure Gods Eater was based off the previous Monster Hunter games. Had a lot of time on my hands for that one. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to play for a really long amount of time for weekends. I'll check on some other opinions.

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.

Dream Team Bros - was £15 in the UK not too long ago.

(The rest of the DS ones didn't hold their value even against something like New Super Mario Bros where there are an insane number of copies around.)

There again Asda did 50% off all 3DS games Black Friday deal I think last year. (NSMB2 at £20 when it just came out).

I doubt Zelda will be possible to get below £25 in the foreseeable future. (And only then with a code or messing around).

@unrandomsam, I'm in the U.S., where both games are still $40 new.

So I've never been into the Zelda franchise, although I have the original and Links Awkakening DX on my 3DS. Should I try Link Between Worlds?

Ask yourself do you like those 2 games. If yes then buy it as its similar but better imo. If not then rent it if you can or just forget it as afterall it is Zelda and hasn't changed too much from Awakening! I love it though as I'm a hugh zelda fan!

You guys are going to have to point me in the right direction here! I only picked up my 3DS XL in November 2013 so missed out on many titles.

I have played Pokemon Y and playing through Zelda: Link between worlds (both fantastic)

What other titles would you recommend ? I enjoy platformers, RPG and averture games

Fire Emblem Awakening, Etrian Odyssey 4, SMT IV, SMT Devil Survivor Overclocked, Etrian Odyssey Untold, Mario and Luigi Dream Team, Luigi's Mansion 2Dark moon, OOT 3d! Both Etrian Odyssey's have demos in the shop along with M&L DT and FE:A. All those games I listed are rated 8 or higher on Metacritic. There is plenty more I can suggest but that should do for now!

I like platformers too. Super Mario 3D Land is very good but not as good as previous entries in the series.
New Super Mario Bros 2 is ok. If you haven't played another New Mario then it is a good choice.
Donkey Kong Country Returns is awesome but the 3DS port doesn't run as smooth as the original.
Rayman Origins is good but you'd be better playing it on another hardware.
VVVVVV is great but short (2-3 hours unless you try ti get all the collectables).
Mutant Mudds is good and tough, it'll take you some time.
SteamWorld Dig is more like Metroid but is good fun and replayable.
Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo is pretty good. Worth $5.
Gunman Clive is similar to Mega Man. Totally worth the purchase.

There aren't a lot of adventure games, at least not like Zelda or Uncharted. Nothing comes to my mind.

RPG: if you live in Europe Bravely Default is great. If you don't or don't like that kind of game (shame on you!) it depends on what you prefer. Strategy-RPG? Fire Emblem (very light on the rpg side). Real-time combat? Tales of the Abyss. Dungeon Crawler? SMT IV, Soul Hackers, Etrian Odyssey... Mario RPG? Well, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will do the trick
And of course, you can play great DS games like Radiant Historia, The World Ends With You or Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.

If you've got any question, feel free to ask me

I'll eventually get them both, but which cult e-Shop retail release should I get first: Senran Kagura Burst or Unchained Blades?

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?

I trying to decide which Zelda game to buy. I need to decide between A Link Between Worlds and Wind Waker HD. I will pick up both eventually but don't want to juggle these 2 games at the same time.

I would like to hear from those who have played both, if possible. Please note that this will be my first time with Wind Waker HD.

What it boils down to is do you like 2d or 3d Zelda's better. I just beat a Like Between Worlds and its great fast paced and good for on the go play. However Wind Waker is longer, has better dungeons, and is my favorite Zelda ever!! I personally loved the sailing as its relaxing but some thought it was boring because it took to long to get from point a to b. The HD version is better in this area from what I hear as I've only played the gamecube one. I'm dying to play it though. The dungeons are much better in WW as well and has a central town you can do a bunch of stuff in!

Thanks. The problem is that I enjoy both 2d + 3d Zelda games. I'm leaning towards Wind Waker HD. With it being a home console version, it seems to be the bigger and grander experience. That said, because I haven't bought a 3ds game in awhile, I need to show it some love also. Apart from A Link Between Worlds, there isn't anything that I really want to buy on the 3DS.
