There have been so many great discounts and so many great games being released that I am starting to get worried about filling up my 32gb SD Card. How has the 3DS eShop been treating you?

I have the same problem as well. Got Order Up!! and Crimson Shroud on sale and I wasn't aware they had huge sizes. I had to delete a bunch of games to fit them. My 2GB card is literally all used up...I need a bigger card!

I have been trying to not buy too many things recently, I realised I already wasted too much on games I barely play anyway so I'm learning to manage my money better.

About SD card space... I had to delete Nintendo Video a long time ago because I found out I never used it and it used up like 3000 blocks I could've used for games.

Then I got the 3DS XL, wich came with a 4 GB card that has served well since then, I still haven't filled it but it's getting near.... I just try to download only small games if possible.

I have about 63 apps/games/VC stored on it right now (not counting the DSiWare "sleeping" in it right now)... And I think I can stuff other 2 to 10 in there (depends on the games I download).

Everytime I'm about to buy a game, I always think to myself; am I ever really going to enjoy this game, like I would, with a full retail game.
So most of the time I end up not buying it.

Funny thing is, I've been spending more of my handheld gaming time with digital games lately, instead of my retail games. It has happened to both my 3DS and Vita. Lots of these digital games are very fun.

Mine stopped draining. PSN has been more interesting of late. The VC just needs to pick up faster here.

The one thing that would drain my bank account would be if Nintendo started putting more of my favourite genres on the eshop, I mean like more RPGs, more platformers and just more Action adventure games. We need more VC titles, specifically Gameboy and Gameboy Colour.
Why hasn't Square Enix put any of their old GB/GBC titles on yet? I would love to play Dragon Warrior 1+2, Dragon Warrior 3, Final Fantasy Legends 1-3, Final Fantasy Adventure, etc. I would empty my wallet into my eshop account just to get these games on VC, I don't know why SE hasn't done anything with the eshop yet (apart from Dragon Quest Wars on DSiware).

@RetroGBHippie92

I agree with you on action adventures & platformers & GB & GBC. We still haven't gotten harvest moon gbc yet in the NA e-shop like to play that sooner as opposed to later like before christmas of 2013 lol. Wish NA e-shop would release it already by now. :(

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

my SD card has been filling up but that's because I've been downloading more retail games as of late. This weekend I will be downloading PMD Gates to Infinity. I have a 16GB SD card right now and am thinking of getting a 32GB one

looking forward to Super Smash Bros, Yoshi's Woolly World, OR/AS, Hyrule Warriors, Theatrhythm Curtain Call, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Pokémon Art Academy, Bayonetta 2, Fantasy Life, PL vs AA, Persona Q, and Story of Seasons.

I heard that one isn't that great. If you haven't played it, I recommend Explorers of Sky over the 3DS PMD.

I think I'm going to download Mighty Switch Force. Looks neat. Does anyone know if the second one is coming to WiiU as well, or is it just 3DS..?

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

It's only been announced for 3DS at the moment, I'm not into the Mighty series myself, but I guess it could come on the Wii U eventually, but considering the fact that we in Australasia still don't have Might Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition is a sign we may never get it.

@RetroGBHippie92 Actually, Mighty Switch Force is one of the most popular eShop games in the Australasian eShop. I assume the reason why Hyper Drive took so long was because the adoption rates for WiiU's in Australia is so low.

and /ontopic, recently I tallied the amount of money I've spent on VC downloads alone. It was over 200. I'm afraid of adding up my retail/3DS Download totals now. Granted it was over two years, and probably won't be too much higher than what I used to spend by getting more cartridges, but still.

(And in the debate between nearly thirty VC games vs three retail games which I could have spent that 200 dollars on... VC is winning, but just slightly.)

If you're tempted to buy something even though you've already got plenty on your plate at the moment, I suggest you just put it on your 'Watch List'. That's what I do and it actually helps.
