You can find new physical copies for EO4 and Soul Hackers for the same price, even cheaper if you're lucky. Code of Princess is a good deal though.

how is Code of Princess?
I've always been on the fence about it, but if it's this cheap I might dive into it

So hang on. A deal exists which gives you $30 eShop credit for purchasing (among other things) an Atlus title... and Atlus coincidentally have a sale where the titles most like that one cost... $29.99.


Well played, Nintendo and Atlus. Well played.

How big are EO4 and Soul Hackers? I'll probably use my credit on one of those (not sure which) since Pokemon is ungodly big and I don't feel like buying a new SD card and figuring out how to port everything over. Unless it's a really easy process, I'm not sure.

Even more insidious: SMTIV's streetpass features make it so you pretty heavily benefit from streetpassing people with other Atlus games.

I think copy/pasting files to your new SD card should work.

Playing through it now actually. About 3 - 4 hrs in. It's simple and repetitive but has a great artstyle and solid voice acting. I've read its really short too. Fun time waster type game. I've gotten so used to STEAM sales and getting insane deals for sub $10 thats its hard to recommend at $20 but YMMV.

Ok. I dig fighting games and I've go more RPG's than I can finish in a month. So if Code of Princess is great, that may be my next guilty pleasure

Code of Princess is not a fighting game. It's a sidescroll, beat'em up RPG. You can level up your skills and stuff.

Also seen this on my Facebook feed from the official Nintendo 3DS page.

For a limited time, select Ubisoft games are 30% off in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS! Games include Rayman Origins, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D and more!

Sales are good. Unfortunally there´s nothing i want.

SUPPOSE they dropped the prices of games i dont want to, like, Steam kind of sales*. Then maybe i could buy even i game i dont want.

*ive been talking a lot about steam prices. But thats because ive been really impressed by them these days.

Hahahahaha, hahahahah oh boy, what a joker.

And that he is ;). If you knew him, you would have realized that that post was filled with sarcasm. Nobody in the PersonaGAF community believes that P5 is for 3ds, including me.

As for this sale, the deals are good, but I'm broke beyond belief. Maybe next time. That or I might buy Ghost recon. I've heard good things about it

With this and Vita sales... So many games, so little time. :(

I wish the 3DS sales were more like the Vita sales to be honest. $10 off is better than nothing, but a 25% discount on EO4, which came out 6 months ago, is not all that impressive. Atlus routinely offers 50% off deals on their Playstation titles after a similar period of time.

It works. I upgraded to a 32GB SDHC card and all I had to do was copy everything and it worked flawlessly.

That's really surprising. Being Nintendo, I figured it would've been a huge ordeal. So many choices... Soul Hackers, EO4, or knock some $ off Pokemon. And I haven't even started SMT IV yet!

Pokemon's only a bit over 1 GB, right? I would peg these Atlus games as around the same size. Not sure why that's "ungodly."

Thinking about Etrian Odyssey IV. I'm reading some reviews right now. Anyone wanna give me a quick comparison to other games or something please?

have you played other Etrian Odyssey games?... it's the same formula, a little more complex and a little less grindy.

however, it breaks down to this.
Pros:
-A lot of customization, with your team and with the character skill development
-Less grindy than previous EO games
-Solid art style
-Maze drawing
-Cool and relaxing soundtrack
-A lot of exploration
-Enemies are fully animated

Cons:
-First person fights
-No real animations during fights can get boring after a while
-Minimalistic story (or
-Can be fucking unfair sometimes, LOL.
-Sometimes it's a pain in the ass to get enough money to buy stuff.
