I'll be excited to get my hands on the 3DS XL.

I'm not at all convinced that I'll be buying one anytime soon, but I'd like to check out the hardware before I completely write it off.

I'm adamant about picking up a 3DS XL, due in part to my fascination with drawing on a touch-screen, the benefits of drawing on a larger touch-screen, and the failing touch-screen of my current 3DS.

My avatar was drawn on Colors! 3D, and was quite a popular piece on the Colors site that week. I'm looking forward to drawing more on Colors! 3D, as well as Art Academy 3D in about 18 days time.

Awesome! I'm going on Friday & Saturday! Man I can't wait for all of the Street Passing, since I've been pretty dry for awhile now and still need 4 Mario Tennis pieces.
