@Xyphon22 @WoomyNNYes The button combination trick is for DS games. I've not heard of an equivalent for 3DS games. But if you run custom firmware on your 3DS, you may be be able to manage your way around the situation. I bought the Monkey Ball 3D game used and don't recall encountering a save file issue, but it was a while ago, and I suppose I could have just got a copy that didn't have any save data, but that would have been unusual.

But generally speaking, if I have a 3DS cart with save data, when I rip the .cia file to my 3DS's internal storage, it only dumps the game, not the save. If I want the save data too I have to use a separate save data manager to copy it over.

There’s another trick you can try. If you pull the cart out when saving it may corrupt the save data which then defaults to the original blank non saved state.

😠😠😠Terrible idea. Eel!?, @jump is making terrible ideas. haha<3

Corrupted game saves can only be solved by making a new game save file, which is what we can't do here. So, I'm not going to go down that road. If you were playing around, I still appreciate the @jump

On the plus side, as far as I could see, I think the game came with like 30% complete, which is much better than everything being completed.

@Dogorilla Yep, that is a perk work Atlus's 3DS eShop offerings; they significantly dropped the prices some time ago. Etrian Odyssey IV is normally $19.99 going by the eShop price. Same with Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. So $9.99/half off for those two isn't bad at all.

3DS is dead, but I might be getting a 2DS XL. Which games (outside of ACNL, Tomodachi life and miitopia) do you guys recommend?

Do you even drift, bro? I'm just playing with you there, cause there's drifting in Mario Kart.

Mario Kart 7 online racing is still active. I still play some every 2-3 months. MK7 is very similar to Mario Kart 8; the character weight classes are the same, karts & parts stats are similar to MK8. So, if you wanted new Mario Kart 8 content, Mario Kart 7 can serve that purprose. And getting 3 star ratings on all cups is a decent challenge. AI can be a bit ruthless at times in150cc, but eventually, skill will get you 3 stars on a cup.

@WoomyNNYes I was thinking about MK7. The 2DS XL i was looking at comes with it!

@octokid I hope you can find a decent deal. 2DS XL's have been at scalper prices since fall/winter, or longer. Around $300+ dollars for a new one in the US.

@WoomyNNYes I'm in Canada, and I found one for auction. It's in good condition, a few scratches but they don't bother me. So far the highest bid is $38 USD, which is 42 Canadian. Doesn't have a box which might explain good prices.
Edit, I meant 45 Canadian bucks. Edit 2: Things just escalated really fast, up to 75 USD! 90 Canadian!

That’s an amazing price, I would so jump on this.

Finallly scored a copy of Ocarina of time 3D a couple days ago...But I'm going to have to get a launch Aqua Blue 3DS just as i did back in 2010 during it's release, but used on eBay. Sniffles. Never liked the XL or 'New' XL....Their larger screens negatively effected the 3D effect(just wasn't as impressive and looked softer and more subtle) and made the visuals more blown up and jaggy. And the 'New' 3DS's wider sweet spot for some odd ball reason.

The 3D effect looks more pronounced, striking and vastly more impressive on the tinier screens of the launch models. Plus, you unlock the 6th brightness by plugging in the power cable which makes a world of a difference, even if that defeats the purpose of it being a hand held.

As for OOT....Embarrassing as it sounds, I spent a grand total of maybe 45 minutes with the N64 original back in 98' and aside from being semi-blown away(Not on the level compared to ALTTP mind you) by the 2D-3D Zelda transition at first, eventually I just couldn't get on board with the muddy bleak brown and grey world, 20fps and how mechanical the controls felt compared to the likes of Mario 64. It felt, well...intimidating. I don't know. Thankfully the 3DS version looks worlds better and is a lot more vivid and colorful, plus it's running at 30fps and is boasting stereoscopic 3D. The only real drawn back are the tiny screens.

@Wavey84 When I finally get around to playing 3D OOT, it will be my first proper go with the title.
Sacrilege to some people but there just wasn't the money when I was growing up so I had to pick and choose carefully...Zelda just wasn't on my radar.
I've grown to appreciate the series so hopefully I'll enjoy it.

@theblackdragon Definitely Luigi's mansion dark moon. It's a really Entertaining game. The game is divided up into missions which is really nice because you can just play one mission and feel accomplished. I always feel like i need to to more in luigi's mansion 1 and in think the game being divided up into missions is especially good for when you just need something to do for 15 minutes or so.
Thank you for your time

I've been giving Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology a try lately and I have to say, it's pretty good. Slow to start but it's getting better the more I play.
