I'm finally narrowed it down to these 3 games. I was originally going to get 2, but ordering off of Toys r us has saved me a lot of cash....Since you don't have to pay any taxes and shipping is free when you order anything over $100.

Which is why I added PilotWings Resort to the list. But my problem right now, is that my credit limit is $300, and when I do have to transfor more money into it can takes around 3 buisiness days to freakin' clear, so i have to make seperate purchases. Hopefully everything comes bundled together!

Nintendo Aqua Blue 3DS

  • Nintendo's + Cats
  • SSFIV 3D
  • PilotWings Resort

If Rayman 3D gets killer reviews I'm definitly going to get it, and I'm also just about to pull the trigger on Monkey Ball 3D as well. But 3 launch titles is enough for me, I don't wan't to over do it at the momento hehe.

The counter just reached 0. It changed from numbers to text saying "TAKE A LOOK INSIDE"

When I clicked it, I was expecting something epic, like awesome new info.

Instead, I was just taken to the 3DS main page. I could have done that by clicking the 3DS tab. Lame.

I clicked the "Play it Today at a Hands-on Event" button near the bottom of the page, and on the following page was a similar black bar saying, "TAKE A LOOK INSIDE" with the words, "Nintendo 3DS released!" above it. What's going on??

Uh Oh...Looks like if your planning on buying any Ubisoft games that are not Ghost Recon you may want to reconsider. Here's a quote from Matthew Castle at NGamer:
"Ubisoft held Rayman back so no one would see how crap it is, basically. Without spoiling the score, it’s one of our lowest rated 3DS launch titles. Along with Splinter Cell and shudders Asphalt 3D. Ubisoft have only gone and blighted a Nintendo hardware launch with dodgy ports again."
Now I'm scratching Rayman off the list of possibilities...Unless the review here says otherwise.

So how exactly is Rayman 2 3D a crap game? If it's a perfect port of the deamcast version, which many people say is a great game....With 3D, updated visuals and the like, than what's the problem here?

And I just cancelled my Sims 3 preorder so I could preorder Rayman 2 3D!!

Nintendolife needs to review both these games so I can find out once and for all which game to buy. Time is running out!

Here are some more quotes:
"...really loveless port. Frame rate is all over the shop and the 3D is the weakest I've seen. Pushing the depth slider seems to shunt the entire game into the background, so it just feels like playing a 2D game, slightly further away."
So there you go, the port has a bad frame rate and the 3D effect is broken.

ARGH!! Now I have to go out of my way to go to Gamestop to cancel my Rayman preorder.

I'm sick of this. I think the smart thing to do would be to cancel Rayman 3D, wait for a review, and decide later what game I'll spend my money on when I'm 100% sure it's a good game.

Maybe I'll just put it towards Mario Kart 3DS. When does that release in the US? Any info on that yet?

Titles I'm aiming for at launch:

  • Pilotwings Resort
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition

Sometime after launch, hopefully:

  • Nintendogs + cats: Golden Retriever & Friends
  • Steel Diver
  • Ridge Racer 3D

Maybe when I feel the urge to:

  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
  • Super Monkey Ball 3D

Game that appears good, but a genre I dislike:

  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (I'm not a fan of turn-based RPGs.)

Well I picked up Ghost Recon : Shadow Wars today. Also picked up ridge racer since both came in. I'm torn between street fighter and pilot wings for my third. Might just get both but don't have the money.

I know that I've preordered Super Monkey Ball, and I may be able to get between 1 and 3 extra games. So far I've decided on Nintendogs + Cats as an extra...maybe that should be it for now. Maybe I'll grab a Mario DS game and that should be plenty.

Leave it to Ubisoft to release their rehash-y crappy Launch title ports, it was the same scenario with the Wii...Release a last gen game with tacked on motion controls, but in the 3DS's case release a last gen game with 3D technology...Which clearly they couldn't even get right with Rayman 2....I mean isn't the 3DS more powerful than the dreamcast? How on earth would Rayman 2 for the 3DS have frame rate problems? They clealry skimped out on the 3D as well....Just imagine if this port didn't have any framerate problems to speak of brilliant 3D, could of made a complete opposite turn impressions-wise.

But ya, Ubisoft reallly annoys me sometimes. The company is a mixed bag. releasing shotty ports with a tacked on yet lousy control scheme or in the 3DS's cause 3D visuals to get uninformed casual gamers cash, while using that cash to develop big titles for the PS3 and 360.

They annoy me, because they clearly lack passion at times with their products and try to suck in the casuals by making a quick buck. And yes, the rabbids do suck.

Anyways, that officially knocks Rayman off my list and into the Bit dumpster. I've got 3 titles that are definit buys, but I'm still deciding if I want Super Monkey Ball 3D. It's the ho-hum level design and weak challenge are turning me off.

You guys writing of Rayman 3D might want to wait for Corbies review. He has already said "Pilotwings Resort, Super Street Fighter IV 3D, and Super Monkey Ball 3D are the best after Rayman 3D, IMO. "

http://twitter.com/CorbieD

And he's not the only one out there saying positive things. Don't cancel your orders just yet.

Stupid me, but is he saying Rayman's better than those 3 or the next best 3DS title after those 3?
And where's the Nintendogs lovin?
