Nintendo 3DS Games: what does this thing have?

VVVVV is a great game that everyone should download if they haven't played it already. I got stuck in the main game and just popped over to the player levels instead. I played the game for hours now and have enjoyed every single second of it. The music is great as well.
 
I really want some of these E-store games. I'm going to get Pushmo and a digital copy of SML2:6 Golden Coins.

What does GAF think of the following?
Megaman
Kirby's Adventure 3D
Kirby's Dreamland
Metroid II (I loved Fusion)
Link's Awakening
Donkey Kong


Any other great Estore games?
The bolded are must-haves. Kirby's Adventure is one of his better games and a very solid platformer. Dreamland is extremely short so I'd only get it if you're a big Kirby fan. Haven't played Mega Man or Metroid II.

Mario's Picross is great if you're interested but not convinced that Picross is your thing. It's basic but costs only a few bucks and took me 30 hours to complete without hints.

EDIT- Oh its only ten bucks? Im willing to take one for the team.
Nice, let us know how it is.

I'm gonna pick up one more game tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I should go for a 3DS game or a DS game I missed. I haven't played 999 yet so I might get that.
 
I finally got around to buying Star Fox and it's probably the best use of the GPU of any game I own (and I own more than I should, so I'm an expert). Its pretty fun too I guess.
you guess

Have not played Ghost Trick, but it's on my buy list. Same with MK7, it's either that or OoT for my next 3DS purchase.


BTW, Super Mario Land is great, I love the 3D effect. I'm really liking this thing so far.

Jump on the Mario Kart craze and get Zelda when there's a sale

and ghost trick has a doggy name missile
 
I just bought Ghost Trick and am itching to play it but I'm pretty engrossed in 999 already.

The DS is really getting me more interested in adventure games.

Press down on the d-pad at the start of a level, you'll love it even more.
 
Wish the RPG category was more robust at this point, especially within the upcoming games. That said Beyond the Labyrinth looks interesting and I can't help but be hyped for Guild01 given Matsuno's role.

Is Tales of the Abyss a well regarded RPG? I never played it, thinking of picking up a 3DS once that’s out
 
Yes, I know.

Hence why I'm surprised there's so little talk about it.. seemingly anywhere.

Going to assume it's junk in that case but wondering if anyone here has played it.

Ah, basically what Exterminieren said then. It's Pokémon Rumble with a little more. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one, but it's not worth the asking price for either, IMO.
 
Another recent 3DS owner who didn't experience any software prior to the Mario launches.

I've got Super Mario 3D Land, Ocarina of Time 3D, and Pilotwings. Anything else retail worth looking into if I'm not much of a strategy, racing, or fighting fan? Starfox 64 looks great but I've beaten that game plenty of times back in the day.

Kind of sucks that I've beaten most of the Ambassador games before too.
 
Man, I've been playing my 3DS more than ever these past two months. I decided to give Steel Diver a go today since I bought during Christmas from Best Buy (for 5 bucks you can't go wrong) and I'm loving it so far! Just played the first two levels but it's a great pick up and play type of game.

Ace Combat is supposedely pretty good and Shinobi was good as well. They'll be dropping in price very soon I'd think so you might wanna hold off
 

Papercuts

fired zero bullets in the orphanage.
I upgraded from the original fat DS to the 3DS, so the estore in general is all stuff I've never had access to. I'm aware of Pushmo and am looking into Mighty Switch Force, but is there any good recommendations/sites to see what DSi stuff I missed out on?

Nano Assault is pretty great, and looks stunning to boot. Since you enjoyed Starfox 64, it'll probably be something you'll enjoy, and it retails for just $20 nowadays. Here's the OT for it, which has much more info:

I've heard good things about Kirby's Adventure 3d. I'm picking it up after I play SM3DL.

Got on a WiFi connection, so I'm downloading a few games. VVVVVV, Kirby's Adventure and Pushmo so far. Anything else I should check out? Has anyone tried FreakyForms?
 
I'll have a crack...

MUST-HAVES:

-Link's Awakening (GBC)
-Donkey Kong '94 (GB)

RECOMMENDED:

-Mario's Picross (GB)
-Gargoyle's Quest (GB)
-Metroid II (GB)
-Bionic Commando (GB)
-Blaster Master: Enemy Below (GBC)

WORTH A LOOK

-Super Mario Land (GB)
-Kirby's Dream Land (GB)
-Game & Watch Gallery (GB)
-Super Mario Land 2 (GB)
-Tetris (GB)

EH

-everything else
yeah, link's awakening, metroid 2 and Pushmo seem like must-haves from here, possibly pictobits too since i finally have a system to play it on (didn't GAF love that one?). should get around to Mario Land 2 one day, but after 3D land anyway.
here's to hoping DK '94 or something like it goes up on club nintendo next week!

prolly not the right thread to ask, but: i got a zelda edition 3DS, should i still be thinking about a screen protector or is that scratching problem no longer an issue? also, mario kart bouts have me debating the grips ive seen around here, but im told you cant use them with the nyko battery thing, so i guess id have to decide.
 
Super Mario Land 2 is much more than just "worth a look". Probably one of the most unique designed 2D Mario titles. Honestly I really don't think any other Mario plays like it. And that's in a good way (not like Super Mario Bros. 2 USA)

I'd get the Hori Screen protector for the sake of longevity. I bought mine with the system and I hardly notice they're there.
 
do you use the cradle? it takes (way)longer with cradle.
without cradle: >1hour
in cradle: 2hours+ or more
I've never used the cradle and it always takes like 3 hours to charge for me :S

Edit: damn those Starfox screens does not do that game any justice at all in my opinion. I seriously thought it was the N64 version at first, and I know that when I played the 3DS version for the first time I said "man this looks so much better that the N64 version". This seems strange.

yeah, was thinking i might - there's a guy selling it in the buy/sell thread, might go jump on that.

left the cradle/charge at home - can i just use a micro or mini (forget which it is) USB and charge it from a PC? AC cable doesn't seem to wanna stay in even when i do have it.

Yeah, it really does look a lot better in motion on the 3DS.

Sadly not even the downloadable trailer on the eShop does it justice because of all the compression.

Same with the Mario Kart 7 screens...in game it looks a million times better.
 
I was also really impressed with the improvement in the graphics for the LoZ: OoT 3D, so I'll have to check out Starfox 64. The videos do not give it justice, hoping for Majoras Mask and Wind Waker 3D, actually would love for a ton of GC games to get the treatment.
 
Getting SM3DL tomorrow.

Games I need to get:
Pushmo
Super Mario Land 2
Metroid II
Donkey Kong
Kirby’s Adventure 3D
Cave Story DSi
Soul Silver
Chrono Trigger
World Ends with You


Also, Is this basically the 3DS software OT?
 
I am kind of surprised how many games I have for this thing. Including the 20 ambassador games, I feel pretty backlogged already :( considering I got hooked on Zelda 2 of all things...not playing MK7, SM3DL, OOT, Shinobi, or anything...just Zelda 2, but it's really good haha

Have you bought Pushmo yet? Playing it right now and it owns, best puzzle game I've played since Critter Crunch.
 
yeah Tunavi, my list is similar, just holing out for the 10th to make sure they dont offer any of those as club nintendo downloads first!

and yeah, gotta catch up on DS gaming: Last Window, Ghost Trick, Strange Journey, few others too.

Yep, sitting on my home screen. Haven't been in the mood for a puzzle game lately, but I'll get around to it one day.

edit: oh shit, and I wanna get VVVVVV too. Tales and RE will be out before I make a dent in my collection. damn, 3DS has games.

3D Land is one of the best handheld platformer, and dare I say "the best". The special worlds are where it's at though, so don't be disappointed if the first 8 worlds are easy.

I thought this too but then I realized, Since games are only ~$10, I don't think its worth wasting all your points for just that small amount of value. I think its more wise to spend points on the exclusive posters and handheld cards.

hype get! I loved super mario land 2. Everyone should pick that up by the way. The game is awesome.

Yeah, 3D Land is fantastic. It's the best handheld platformer until Rayman Origins comes to 3DS (unless it's a shitty UbiPort).

As I mentioned above, I'm loving Pushmo as well, in addition to VVVVVV and Kirby's Adventure. Fun system.
 
true, true. hey, as an aside - Jimmy Stav mentioned the hori screen protector, what are you guys using? i think dude in the buy/sell has the amazon one licensed by nintendo but reviews say it only covers the bottom screen.
