kirbygirl commented on Feature: The Ten Best 3DS Games For Your Kids ...:

Nice list, and most of those are games my (just-turned) 7-year-old son loves. Here are a few others he enjoys, for those who might be looking for more ideas of kid-friendly 2DS/3DS games:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Mario Party Island Tour
Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move
Skylanders series

My son has had his Aqua Blue 3DS since launch (3.5 years ago), and with Nerf Armor, screen protectors, and a stylus leash, it's stayed in great shape. I should also mention that he loves playing a bunch of the Ambassador and Virtual Console games, though some of those are more difficult for him. Still, as a mom who grew up on the NES and original Game Boy, I love seeing him enjoy the first Super Mario Bros., Kirby's Adventure, Excitebike, Super Mario Land, etc. Much nostalgia. :-)

kirbygirl commented on New Taiko Drum Master Game Revealed for 3DS:

@therube

For me, the more recent entries in the Taiko series on the DS and 3DS are different enough to justify importing them. Their story modes are pretty distinct.

I loved Little Dragon & the Mysterious Orb, and I'm looking forward to trying Don and Katsu's Space-Time Big Adventure soon. These two games alone have made importing a Japanese 3DS worth it for me.

kirbygirl commented on Developer Interview: Island Officials on Kicks...:

This seems like it will be a lot of fun for puzzle fans, their KS goals are very modest, and the rewards for backers are pretty cool. I hope they reach their goal.

As for the argument about DSiWare vs. 3DSWare, making it as DSiWare just gives them a larger audience, so it makes sense. Even if your 3DS system memory is already full (as mine is), it's quick and easy to swap out DSiWare titles between the SD card and system memory.

kirbygirl commented on Review: Giana Sisters DS (DS):

This game is also available for iPhone/iPad, for those who are still looking for it. Definitely worth a download. That said, I prefer traditional controls as opposed to the touch screen alternatives, especially for platformers like this, so if they do release a retail DS version in North America, I'll definitely buy it. I haven't seen any info about an NA release--but I also noticed the review in Nintendo Power, so that seems like a hopeful sign. :)

That's Mighty Flip Champs (MFC). It's another great puzzle platformer you should check out some time, especially if you enjoy this one.

kirbygirl commented on Review: Hints Hunter (DSiWare):

A good review--love the title too. ;) So far, I'm enjoying the game at times, but I really wish there were a real hint function. Right now, I am stuck on level 4-10 (Sum), and several others that I know are stuck there too. Zkaplan &/or ErrorSupply, can you offer any helpful hints on this one?

kirbygirl commented on Review: Disney Fireworks (DSiWare):

I played a bit of this today and I actually liked it (though perhaps partly because my 3-year-old son was sitting right next to me and LOVED watching the fireworks show). It's very simple and probably good only for short pick-up-and-play sessions)--otherwise, it would likely get repetitive. But it's also very pretty and kind of relaxing.
