I feel like Nintendo should have just bit the bullet and made the resolution of the 3DS screens exactly double that of DS, lite, i, and XL. That way the games would looks just as sharp! Oh well....it doesn't really bother me unless I'm playing something like Pokemon or Picross. For things like Okamiden it still looks ok.

Yes, I can tell a difference, but I sort of like the way the games look on the higher res.

What's this now?

RAM (random access memory) is the core component to rendering the graphics of the 3DS. playing 64bit and above games for long periods of time will put a grinding hault on the ram of your 3DS. also the battery is a pretty easy fix. like any phone just take it out and let it cool off for a while then pop it back in

Uh... I don't believe that it matters how many bits a game has. If you have 200 sprites on the screen with a 16 bit game, it will still lag. And ALSO, you do know that the RAM isn't affected by how long you play. Data isn't left behind on the disk if it doesn't need to be rendered.

yes indeed sprites make all the difference. and i dont think RAM would be affected at all. maybe the cpu or gpu but not the ram. it strikes my curiosity to see how far 3DS games will go to use the ram on the 3DS. maybe a call of duty game or mt-framework engine game will use more ram than other games

I'm playing Pokémon White with the correct aspect ratio, and the smaller size is just fine for me. It's certainly better than the alternative.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.

i think i will just trade in both my dsi and ds lite for gamestop store credit. at this point I myself dont think i need to keep a spare ds just because of how the games look. thats my personal opinion and not advice.

Wow, playing them in the regular resolution really is tiny. Didn't realize the PPI was so much higher than the DS lite.

I wish there was an option to turn off blurring. Hopefully a firmware update will let you customize all this stuff in the settings. :P

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

You could admit that you have no idea what you're talking about.... but if you did I wouldn't be laughing my ass of here. I really hope for humanity that you're trolling though because this is gold!

as for the problem with blurry DS games... this is what's happening:
original image from Super Mario World
Untitled
scaled a bit using the "nearest neighbour" method which is quick but drops pixels
(take note of the eyes on the fireballs and the jagged bits on the hill... those things tend to phase in and out with motion)
Untitled
bi-linear which takes a bit more time, produces blurring but... looks a bit better
Untitled
and cubic which looks the best (still some blurring) but is the most CPU intensive
Untitled

In any case, I kept my DSi, which goes alongside my GBA SP (awesome true-backlight edition) as the perfection of its generation.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

I take it you mean the 3DS uses the Bi-Linear method. Just wanna double check. Maybe a future 3DS with more power under the hood could use cubic?
