Is The World Ends With You worth buying even though there are so many 3DS RPGs out now?

Good question. The answer is yes. The gameplay is probably the most creative and fun I've seen for that type of game. It uses the stylus and buttons in battles in a way that works perfectly. Decent story length, rockin' music.

KH:DDD can be played without playing TWEWY. However, it will make a bit more sense when you play DDD at the beginning if you have played TWEWY first. Oh, and it has a TRON themed world. That made it a day 1 purchase for me.

At your comment of Unchained Blades, it got a great review from NL.

When you say it uses the Stylus AND buttons, does that mean it isn't left-hander friendly?

Another great question. I'm a lefty too - and it works quite well! In the battles, for certain attacks you have to do patterns with the button. Something like Up-up-down-left. For left handers, you would just do X-X-B-Y. I didn't have any trouble with that.

The d-pad and the buttons are mapped identically. You don't even need to change anything in the options. So to answer your question: yes, it is lefty-friendly

Thanks to the both of you, @Shane904 and @Harrison_Peter for answering my question. I feel like I'm being a bother asking all of these, though.

Back on topic...

That is FREKIN" EPIC that they thought of us lefties from the start. It'd be nice if every developer did that!

1 - don't trust the "RPG" label in the eShop. If a game has even slight elements of a particular genre, the developers will add that tag, so their game will pop up in as many different searches as possible (meaning non-RPG's pop up in an "RPG" search).

2 - The World Ends With You is supposed to be a fantastic game, but remember, it's a DS game, not a 3DS game. You can still play it, but it won't be graphically up to par with 3DS games, and won't have 3D (also, some say DS games look worse on the 3DS, and I think the game can be hard to come by).

3 - Unchained Blades is supposed to be great, but it's eShop only, meaning you'll have to have a larger SD card (since it takes up lots of space). Also it's a first person dungeon crawling JRPG, which are generally the most difficult types of JRPGs. It's supposedly more newbie friendly than most, but it will still be much more difficult than you're used to.

As he said, TWEWY is a bit difficult to find. You can order it easily through Gamestop's website in the US though.
Graphics wise, I think it looked fine on the 3DS.

TWEWY is $24.99 at GameStop, which is kinda out of my budget for a DS game.
I don't really have the money to get a larger SD card, so no Unchained Blades for me right now.

TotA 3DS is $29.99 at GameStop, is that a good price?
Would it be worth it to get KH:DDD at GameStop for $29.99, without playing TWEWY first?

Twewy is just fine on the 3DS(infact I'd say its better). Thats how I played it from the beginning well worth the purchase ( I played it on the DS lite for comparison, sound is so much better on the 3DS)

RikuzeYre

Shane904

KH:DDD would be fine without playing TWEWY.
Also, TWEWY's gameplay is as fun as any 3DS game. Thought I'd mention that since you said it's too expensive for a DS game for you.

Shane904

RikuzeYre

Amazon has Twewy for 20$. But drop everything your doing right now and get TotA from gamestop. Its well worth it ( i payed 10$ more that for it , got 327 hours of that fantastic game)

RikuzeYre

Kingdom hearts doesnt make sense anyway so I'd personally say to play twewy first since DDD streamlines everything neatly for you

Keep in mind that I won't be able to get any games for at least a month as I still have to come up with the funds to my pre-order of Animal Crossing New Leaf paid off, then I have to redeposit money into my savings account from when I bought my Wii U.

You'll get plenty of gameplay out of TWEWY or KH:DDD to hold you over for a month =P I have not played TotA, but appears you get a lot out of it from what RikuzeYre said.

Just get Tales of the Abyss. By the way if you're left handed you can still play kid icarus rather easily. The controls are very malleable. Resident evil revelations as well. But Im guessing you'll be getting that on the Wii U ( Hey its 39$ on Amazon)

I can second that KI works well for lefty. However, you're going to be using the ABXY pad instead of the circle pad. Works fine for me though.

I'll play the demo of KH tomorrow and that should pretty much make up my decision. I gotta get to bed and won't be on till at least 11am tomorrow because of church so goodnight everyone. God Bless you forever, and Happy Gaming.

As others have said, you don't need to play TWEWY before KH:DDD. The two games' stories don't interconnect at all (the TWEWY characters are essentially doing little more than making cameos in KH:DDD).

Also, as has been said before, get TotA.

KH:DDD took me about 25 hours to beat, and after doing all the special boss fights, and finding the treasure chests I missed, I clocked in around 40 hours altogether.

In contrast, it took me exactly 50 hours just to complete Tales of the Abyss. Adding in sidequests, and it would probably run you upwards of 70 hours. Also, you earn perks for a second playthrough, with extra sidequests added in for a second run, so your time would double to do everything.

I actually got my times and moneys worth out of doing kingdom hearts because I restarted on proud mode and started doing a lot of stuff with the dream eaters (I figured out how to open the portals finally) after 30 hours on the second file Im only half of the way I was in the same time as I did the first round.
Oh and flick rush is addictive. But ToA for 30$? Cant pass that up yo.

@ChrisT99 Unchained Blades is actually my favorite game on the eshop and is a really great dungeon crawler RPG with an awesome story so in my opinion if you like dungeon crawlers or RPG's get Unchained Blades!!

Now for something completely different!
Still got it memorized?

Because of the demo, I no longer want KH.

Was at GameStop and they said they had a copy of TWEWY for $29.99, which I didn't buy. I was stuck between the following games though:

  • Final Fantasy III DS for $11.69
  • Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for $22.99
  • Steel Diver for $8.99
  • Pilotwings Resort for $13.50

I traded in ZombiU for $13.40 store credit and bought Pilotwings with that credit. Even though I already bought Pilotwings, I just want to know: which of those 4 games above do you think would have been the best value based on what I like?

Wait, weren't you interested in Tales of the Abyss? Was your GameStop out?

Yeah, the KH demo really doesn't to the game justice, at all.

As for your question, I think Final Fantasy III would have suited your preferences best. It's an RPG (which you said you were interested in), and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is usually considered one of the weaker entries in the series.

Pilotwings: Resort isn't a bad choice, though. I don't know how much you'll get out of it now, as it's biggest draw is showing off the 3D, and it's a short game, but it can be fun to fly around.
