I really liked the counter move. It allowed enemies to be more aggressive, and gave a good skill based reaction gameplay function to mix things up. Of course some enemies you still had to use missiles on or a morph ball bomb, or freeze, etc. overall I think it was a great addition and I hope they keep it moving forward for the 2D entries.

In fact, why isn’t Samus Returns on Switch? I mean, I love it on 3DS. The 3D is amazing for a Metroid game. But I just see no good reason why they wouldn’t have done a dual release. That rumored 2D Metroid needs to hurry up, because I’ve almost lost faith in them ever releasing Prime trilogy, and who knows when Prime 4 will drop. Probably be a Switch 2 launch title, in all honesty.

WarioWare Gold is top shelf, btw. Just gave it a spin. Love the amiibo functionality. He’s an artist with a canvas and whatever Amiibo you scan in, Wario will sketch a drawing of. It’s absolutely comical. An art connoisseur then offers to buy from you so you do get coins from it, but it’s hilarious seeing the drawings he comes up with for each amiibo. The game is also really fun.

I feel like a Nintendo library is not complete without games like this. I’m really glad they released that last spurt of games post-Switch launch. Captain Toad is chef’s kiss. It’s like it was made for 3DS to begin with. Warioware Gold as just mentioned. Excellent. Metroid Samus Returns, arguably the best game on the 3DS- certainly one of the best. Mario & Luigi Bowsers Inside Story, even though we already had plenty of entries in that series, one more is always appreciated. Luigi’s Mansion which landed 2/3 of the series on 3DS. They really filled out the library nicely. That’s what Switch is missing. It needs a Metroid. It needs a WarioWare. It needs a Mario & Luigi. It needs at least one, maybe even two more Fire Emblem games (Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776 remakes when?). It needs more diversity.

I’m starting to realize now why 3DS library is so hard to rival. Because Wii U was a sinking ship, they put many of their top developers on making 3DS games, and then porting Wii U games over to the more successful 3DS. Games like Hyrule Warriors, Fire Emblem Warriors, Captain Toad, Mario Maker, even Wii ports like DKC Returns, Kirby Extra Epic Yarn and Xenoblade... they were bringing the heavy firepower for their handheld more than they ever had before. And that is how the 3DS library ended up being legendary

Peoples forgot if there are a lot great Japanese exclusive 3DS games.
Well, by my definition.
The great games i meant was the Nippon Columbia games.
Their games are heavily aimed to girl audiences so there are a lot of Pet Shop style games, Pet Hospital games, Cooking Mama style games, NintenPets style games, Fashion style games, etc. And don't forget AKB48 + Me, the Mii game with AKB48 licenses on it.

Peoples here mostly talking about Zelda, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Smash Bros, etc on 3DS. Honestly, i don't care with those games since they are not interesting for me at all.
Some of 3rd party on 3DS were more interesting than typical 1st party Nintendo games.

@JaxonH That's cool you liked the counter-attack, and you do raise good points there. I guess it felt a little...scripted for me, but it is a pretty cool move, especially when you're using it against the Metroid bosses. You counter them, then you can pump them full of missiles. Now THAT is satisfying.

At first, countering in Metroid: Samus Returns did feel a bit clunky, but the player adapts as time progresses. It almost becomes reflex after a point. While they're few, the bosses in the game are amazing and vary on how you need to defeat them. By far my favorite fight was the Diggernaut as it's more of a puzzle than anything else. I went in having already played the original Metroid II and was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the changes in this remaster.

I gave WarioWare Gold a spin this past spring as well. That game is pretty underrated IMO and showcases the series's humor in spades. True, a lot of it is a rehash for those who have played most if not all of the previous titles, but there's still a lot of value with this "best of" collection. The Amiibo sketches were hilarious, though I don't have the Wario Amiibo lol.

Currently playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Ori and the Will of the Wisps (Switch)

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

Just snagged Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure in the sale. Haven't tried it yet, but a Nihon Falcom action-rpg sounds right up my alley.

@JaxonH Captain Toad always felt like it would be ideal on a handheld system. Now it's on two! I just wish the DLC was available in the 3DS version.

Eel

Yeah that would've been nice. Though the 3DS version is just... Impressive on its own. I really like that it exists at all.

Interestingly, quite a few of my favorite 3DS games are WiiU ports: Hyrule Warriors, Yoshi's Woolly World, Captain Toad...

I still would rather play Hyrule Warriors on 3DS than on the Switch. The careless way they handled that port was just disheartening.

Recently i bought Fossil Fighters Frontier and Hello Kitty and Friends: Rockin' World Tour PAL version last July 2020 for very ridiculous cheap price, under US$ 4.00 / Rp 50,000.

That Hello Kitty game never got any gameplay video on Youtube / review so i was wondering was that really bad game until nobody want to review that Hello Kitty game.
After i played it for a while, i understood why did that game never got any review.
Basically the game wasn't bad, it was very basic "handphone style" game. Basic sliding puzzle game, basic rhythm game, you can decorate your Kitty but it delivered so basic, quite mediocre i said but still i saw some potential from that Hello Kitty compared with other similar 3DS game from Japan that have prettier 2D graphics but still similar casual games.

@MarioLover92 Agreed. I wouldn't have minded so much if the Switch version came with the DLC by default, but having to buy a separate version of the game just to have the right to purchase the DLC strikes
me as more than a bit cheap.

@Anti-Matter How is Fossil Fighters? It's one I've eyed for years, but I've just never gotten around to it.

I actually own some sort of Hello Kitty racing game on the 3DS (picked it up for cheaps in a sale). There's another one I'm actually more excited to own:

Hello Kitty To Issho! Block Crash V is basically a fusion of Breakout/Arkanoid-style gameplay with a Hello Kitty-inspired anime theme. It looks fun, but, unfortunately, it costs a pretty penny to import, so I'm keeping my eyes open for a reasonably priced version of the game for my Vita.

From what i saw from Youtube and my gameplay for a while, it looked like Pokemon style game.
Basic Turn based style, every dinosaurs have their 4 moves.
You play as either Boy or Girl but you cannot change their looking.
It has fossil digging activity by driving an off road car to get new dinosaurs and you have to remove the stones from the fossil carefully to revive them, pretty similar with Spectrobes.
For me it was pretty decent Pokemon style game considered the game created by Spike Chunsoft.
Some video to explain.

Didn’t know Gurumin was Falcom. I decided against installing it on my New 3DS just the other day. I have it on my other systems that are being repaired right now... maybe I’ll install it after all.

What’s super cool, is I got the PAC-Man Championship Ed. NES demake rom, and used New Super Ultimate VC injector to create an installable cia file, and now I have it on my 3DS as an NES VC game! Same for NES Tetris which I grew up on. And, I got the new 2019 translation of Fire Emblem Thracia 776 to inject using the SNES9x wrapper, same for the new Naga translation of Fire Emblem Genealogy of the Holy War. They would never work with the default SNES VC wrapper because the added translation made the file size larger than it was designed for. And all the other wrappers played the game at low speed or had garbled text. The SNES9x wrapper works perfectly, but it had sound issues because that emulator wrapper... just happened to have sound issues. But I found an updated version of the super ultimate injector that uses a fixed version of it that does not have sound issues with the games... I can’t believe I finally have those FE games with their modern translations as SNES VC titles on 3DS now. I had to do it myself because I just couldn’t find them anywhere. Of course, I could always play them using the installed SNES emulator I had but, I like it when they’re installed as individual games. I still use the emulator for Mario RPG and Yoshi’s Island, but may inject them as VC games too using the SNES9x wrapper.

DLC for Captain Toad would be great, but I’m just happy the game is on the system to be honest. It’s a game I doubt I’ll ever played to completion anyways so it’s probably not going to make much of a difference in the end.

Tried playing Horizon Zero Dawn today. The Gyro only works when you map everything as mouse/keyboard controls. Thankfully somebody had already made a controller configuration so I loaded that up and adjusted the sensitivity accordingly. Been having some heart issues lately though and started feeling sharp pains in my shoulder and heart when I started playing in the last two times I tried playing it over the weekend so I just gave up. Trying to recover right now and it seems like, for some reason, whenever I play that game I start getting those pains again. Maybe it’s the way I sit and lean and the tension creates stress? Idk. But for right now I’m just gonna leave it be until I get over whatever is going on.

Metroid is so good though. And WarioWare such a great pick up and play game. I even started playing Fire Emblem Fates again, copied over my save file in chapter 6 from my all-in-one cart and started a path for Revelations. I also fired up Fire Emblem Awakening again. Of course this time I have cheats I can access while I am playing. I tried the “100XP every action” for just a few turns to get some of my guys leveled up on chapter 6 in Fates. Particularly Jacob and Azura, who was level 1. But then I quickly turned it off because I didn’t want to get over leveled. It’s just nice knowing I can fall back on those cheats as a crutch if I need because I did set the difficulty to hard this time on both of these playthroughs.

That sounds a bit alarming. Have you been to a doctor? Chest pain is nothing to play around with.

I should try emulating the Fire Emblem SNES games on my Vita. My patched ROMs of SMT I and II run great on Retroarch on that system. GBA games do as well when I overclock the CPU.

I replayed Star Fox 64 3D recently, and it's still a blast. The stereoscopic 3D really brings the game to life. I wouldn't want to play it without that functionality, honestly.

@JaxonH Yes that does sound concerning.

I saw in another thread that you have a very natural fear of receiving bad news if you visit a doctor, but in the case that happens, keep in mind that the ones that stay behind when we are gone are our loved ones... And giving them time to understand and process things together is better than just leaving unexpectedly.

Not that you will receive bad news, though! I'm sure they will help you and tell you what to do and not do.

So please do go to a doctor, and be well.

@Ralizah @Eel
Well I did finally convince myself to go to Urgent Care. They didn’t run any tests but they did dismiss it as “stress” and maybe potassium deficiency (that doesn’t explain the lightheadedness unless it was both of those things together). Which, whether it’s right or wrong it made me feel better. The lightheadedness went away shortly after which lends credence to the theory that it was hypertension from freaking out. But the sudden pain in the arm and heart haven’t completely gone away so, just taking it easy with some aspirin and a dozen health supplements and bananas and general easy going. Figure hey, if it’s really just stress than no harm done. If it’s not, best to hedge with appropriate action. Feeling great today though. So that’s improvement. But playing Horizon has been 0 for 3... pains every time. It’s like I’m allergic to the game or something. Will try again in a week or so.

I beat Star Fox 64 3D and loved it. It’s fantastic and the best entry in the series, IMO. I also have the English SMT 1 and 2 as VC on 3DS. And since they did the Ambassador GBA games, that provided an official shell for VC games to be injected into, color restored and ghosting removed. Not sure if sleep mode is patched in. They have the ability to do that now but I obtained mine a few years ago and that might’ve been before they figured out how to do it.

With an R4 card tucked into the 3DS game slot, that’s every NES, SNES, GB/GBC, GBA, Genesis, SegaCD/32X, DS and 3DS game in one pocket handheld, with 3D for the 3DS games, and that’s just amazing. You can actually play DS games from SD card now, but it doesn’t have perfect compatibility while the R4 does, so I just keep an R4 in.

Tell ya what’s hard to get though- extendable styli for the New 3DS model (not XL). I realized I lost my stash that I bought a few years ago and I needed an extra for my new New 3DS I’m using. I searched the Internet high and low and even got burned with OG 3DS extendable styli marketed as New 3DS styli. But I finally found a seller on eBay with a 5-pack of them. So I have an extra if you need for either the OG 3DS, New 3DS or New 3DS XL. Can ship in an envelope with a single stamp. So let me know if either of you are dying to get your hands on a proper extendable stylus.

@Ralizah yeah the 3D in Star Fox is amazing but I still see it as a trade off in some areas as the rumble pack was such a big part of the N64 version as well as the bigger screen being handy for spotting more baddies. I would chose the 3DS version over the N64 one but I can’t call it the definitive version.

Recent 3DS games include a download of Shin Megami Tensei IV, which I'm loving so far. I ordered Angry Birds Trilogy. Kind of wanted the game after watching the second Angry Birds movie recently, just to have the game in my library. Suppose to come in the mail sometime this week.

@Ralizah Just want to say, hope you enjoy Gurumin. While I haven't completed the 3DS entry yet, I finished the game years ago on PC, really a good game and story IMO.
