Animal Crossing New Leaf or Bravely Default?

Animal Crossing New Leaf is a great life simulator which I have played for over 200 hours, and there is still a lot more I can do in the game. It is a very relaxing game, and it is best that play a bit every day, rather than large periods of time in a day.

Bravely Default is also a great game, which I only have a few problems with. These are that some of the voice actors aren't the best choices and it can feel a bit repetitive in one particular part of the game. It has an excellent job system, and the options to brave and default make the game seem a lot different from other JRPGs. There is a lot of content in the game, and even completing the main story and mastering all the jobs will probably take you 80 hours +.
Overall I preferred Animal crossing slightly more, but I think the best way for you to decide is to get the game based on which genre appeals to you more. Whether you prefer life simulators or RPG's you won't be disappointed with either game.

They're both awesome games. Animal Crossing is probably the definitive sim experience on Nintendo consoles, whereas BD is one of the best RPGs on the system. Can't go wrong with either, really.

I'll say Animal Crossing: New Leaf, if only because I feel it is one of those games that defines the system. I really think every 3DS owner should have a copy of that game.

My recommendation: if you like it, you'll play every day, so a digital download of it might not be a bad idea.

So, I've been working on a pinball game for a while now, (See signature) and I've started dabbling in the art. The problem is, all I have for that is GIMP, paper and pencils, and a scanner. GIMP is great, but, after making an attempt tonight, I realized drawing with a pencil on paper then scanning it in wasn't gonna cut it. So now I'm thinking about either downloading Colors! 3D, Art Academy: Sketch Pad, or Colors! for iPod and buying a stylus. Here are some of the pros and cons that I know about for each:

Colors! 3D: This would probably be what I'd choose, if my touchscreen was calibrated, but no matter how many times I do it I just can't fix it. I really wish Nintendo would make an advanced calibration that covers the whole screen or something. Basically, there are a couple of areas where the calibration is messed up, each in between the two calibration points. One senses too far to the left, and one senses too far to the right. This makes it annoying just drawing in WarioWare D.I.Y., I can't imagine how frustrated I would get with this. The pros though are that it looks like it would be simple to use and that I could make some colorful, simple art with everything I need to make good looking pinball art. (Which isn't very complicated at all and is usually pretty cartoony) It also looks like it has great export options.

Art Academy: Sketch Pad: My gamepad, as far as I know, (I don't use it that much; it's in my brothers room, and there aren't a ton of games on it I want to play... but that's going to change soon when Mario Kart 8 comes out!) is calibrated just fine, and it's bigger too, which would allow more precision, and it's also my cheapest option. The problem here though, is that it doesn't look like it's made to do what I want to do. I want solid cartoony lines that I can fill with solid colors and then add a few small shading effects. From what I'm looking at on Miiverse... it doesn't look like you can do that.

Colors! on iPod with a stylus: I'm really not sure on this one. Has anyone used the app? For one, it would be my most expensive option since I need to buy the app AND a stylus for my iPod. There are also no buttons, which would make simple things like switching tools and layers more complicated than they need to be. The appstore reviews also aren't the best, but they ARE appstore reviews so it's not like they're super trustworthy or anything. On the plus side, I would have a retina display, you can export in even higher resolutions than Colors! 3D, and I know my iPod touch screen will never become an uncalibrated mess.

On top of all that, a few other things I need to throw out are:

  • I need to be able to have my playfield blueprints in the background that I can draw over. I need to make sure all my drawings line up correctly with all the objects and lights on the playfield.
  • I stink at drawing... but I feel that, with a lot of effort and some practice, I could pull off some pretty good looking art. (Well, until I come to faces... that's when things get [i]really[i/i] ugly.) I'm wondering though, do any of these have tools that allow you to easily create simple shapes, like lines and circles? Not all my art is going to be based off of lines and circles obviously, but tools like that would be extremely helpful.
  • Here are a few examples of pinball art to show the kind of look I'm going for:
    Red and Ted's Roadshow playfield
    White Water playfield
    As you can see, pinball playfield art is usually not super detailed and pretty cartoony. Which app would be best for that kind of art? (I'm assuming Colors! is)
  • Do any of these apps have any features that would help me out that aren't listed on their websites or anything? If so could you tell me?

So, that's my lengthy post. Feel free suggest any other tools I could use (that aren't too expensive, of course!) if you know of any. Also, if you or someone you know is willing to do the art... let me know. If I can't find a good way to do it myself having someone else do it would be my last resort.

Edit: Oh, one last thing. Do you think I should make a seperate thread for this, or should I just keep it here?

I don't believe it! I won't believe it! There isn't a pinball right here! What kind of world do we live in, where there isn't a pinball right here? Well, I'm going to do my part! I'm gonna— umm... build a pinball! - Homestar Runner (Sort of)

The Japanese digital release was 4,713 blocks, so expect somewhere in that ballpark.

Etrian Odyssey IV or the Millennium Girl game?
Truth is I'm leaning towards the new EO: Millennium Girl game. I was going to buy EO IV straight away when I saw the release date on MG closing in but I couldn't find the hard copy anywhere, which is very worrying considering it was only released last year.
However, I'm not sure if it was would be better to start on IV first then move on MG. If so I wouldn't mind getting the download ver. which is still quite pricey :/
Bear in mind I've never played a EO so maybe playing numerically doesn't matter at this point lol..

@WashioYuji It doesn't matter really what order you play them in as story takes a back seat to gameplay and character building skills! I say if you find a copy of EO IV go for it as it was my second favorite game last year right behind SMT IV. Its one of the few games I beat. However MG has more of a story this go around and all the features from EO IV that the first game so desperately needed. You can't go wrong with either really but the overworld on EO IV really sets it apart from all the others in the series!

Have you played either of the demos? If not that should be the first thing you do as the data transfers over to the main game.

Should I get animal crossing or something else? I loved the GameCube version,but the others were a bit lacking for my tastes. Haven't tried the 3ds version though.

Currently playing: Mario Kart 8, W101, Lego City, and MANY eshop games. :)

@Spoony_Tech Cheers mate. Yea I did play the demos and to be honest I breeze through them, skipping cutscenes and such because I didn't want to be exposed too much to the storyline, knowing I'd play them again when I get the game. I was mainly really looking at the gameplay.
I did notice that MG didn't allow me choose a class like IV, so like you said it maybe a bit more story driven.
I think I'll hunt a copy of IV then and if I love it, I'll get MG.
I'm tempted to get a US 3DS just for SMT IV lol...

EDIT: Oh wow! a retailer just updated and have EO IV stock :o

What's the best Professor Layton to start with? Do I need to play the DS games first or would it be ok to just jump right into one of the 3DS games?

The games of each trilogy tie into each other, the prequel trilogy more so since it has a larger overarching storyline. I would either start with The Last Specter and work through them chronologically, or The Curious Village if you want to play them in the order they were released.

Hi everyone! I bought my first Nintendo console in life, a black 3DS. I can't take my hands from it! I got Pokemon Y, Spirit Camera, SMT IV and SMT Soulhacker to have a decent amount of gameplay hours to enjoy.

Now I'd like to taste also a good action RPG game because turn based is fun but I dont want to get tired too soon from it.

I always have been a Castlevania fan, SoTN was the best for me. So I'd like you to suggest me something like that. I also enjoy any dungeon crawlers. I recently got Anonymous Notes 1 for a decent amount besides the bad reviews but it look as something that may ease my hunger...

Also, just as a curiosity, I saw RE:Revelations for 20usd... is that a worthy pick at that price?

Thanks a lot for any suggestion you got for me, and sorry for the long post!!

Out of those, I'd say Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition (though, I haven't played SF643D to compare).

As for other early titles, I'd also recommend:

  • Dead or Alive Dimensions (I personally feel it's even better than SSFIV3D, but instead of writing a wall of text on the subject, I'll just say it comes down to whether you enjoy 2D or 3D fighters more)
  • Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (this is actually a really fun hack n' slash, with a lot of content. My favorite launch title)

I've also heard that Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars is good (especially if you like strategy games, like Fire Emblem), but I haven't actually played it myself.
