Still haven't used my new 3DS I bought last Christmas, but I still grab interesting games for it. If you know of any gems, post them here.

I just bought Ocarina of Time as it was discounted. Normally goes for $70 here but it was half price.

These are what I have so far.

NDS
Sora to Robo
Zelda Spirit Tracks
Zelda Phantom Hourglass
Okamiden

3DS
Metroid: Samus Returns
Ocarina of Time
Luigi's Mansion 2
Star Fox 64 3D
Chibi Robo Zip Lash

I want to get Hey! Pikmin, Majora's Mask, Link Between Worlds, Kirby Robobot, Kid Icarus, and Dillon's Dead Heat Breakers which I only just found out about yesterday. Looks fun.

Link Between Wolds is probably my favorite '2d' Zelda game, excellent - just excellent. Haven't heard a lot of great things about Return of Samus. I heard the Shinobi title is also excellent, might be worth checking out. As are the Fire Emblems!

Got Hey Pikmin.

I've been looking into Ever Oasis too. Look fun.


Edit: I'm looking into the Dragon Quest games as well. I've only ever played DQ8 a little on PS2 a little.

That game looks really fun! I'm sort of thinking about picking up a 3ds .. again. Really want to try my hand at Golden Sun DS, Metroid and Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Today I opened my SNES designed 3DS and charged it for the first time. This thing looks so awesome. Also bought a transparent, flexible plastic (or is it rubber?) cover plate. It has 2 parts, one for the top and bottom. Just need to get some screen protectors which I'll do tomorrow.

I think the first game I'll play is Samus Returns. I bought this with the console for Christmas in 2017. I have three amiibos for it. Two are made specifically for this game while one is for Smash Bros but will unlock a missile upgrade or energy tank. One unlocks hard mode (yes, I had to buy hard mode for $29.99) and the other is another missile upgrade I think. There's another Smash Bros one but it's long out of stick here. It only gives and extra missile upgrade or some other power up though so it's not crucial.

Tomorrow I might trade in two PS4 games I have no interest in and see if I can get enough to go towards Majora's Mask or Ever Oasis.

So Dragon Quest has these DLC missions and quite a few of them. They are still available thankfully, but who knows for how long?

I got this response when asking on the DQ7 board about them and how far in before they become available.

Roughly 5~8 hours into the game depending on play speed, maybe 12 at most. As for how long they'll be around? It's hard to say. I would wager until Nintendo shuts off all 3DS servers, as they're directly handling DQ7's DLC. If it were Square-Enix handling it, and making the call? They would probably be down by now, though it's hard to say as Yoichi Wada is no longer the CEO, so maybe that mentality of giving a s*** about fans and keeping up DLC server code that costs them literally nothing except for 20s a week to assure it's still present and passes data corruption checks, has changed? I don't know.

The reason I asked how far in, is because I imagine it's quite a long game and I might not have enough time to get to that point any time soon. I also asked if once downloaded, do they carry over to a new game? I don't mean like having them from the start but rather say you downloaded, made a new save (or overwrite your current one) and say the Nintendo pulled support, would they still be available? Still waiting on the answer.

Looks like I'll have to go online to get a few of the games I'm after. 3DS appears to be dying here in NZ. There are barely any games around anymore. I can't find a single copy of Dragon Quest 8, Kid Icarus or Kirby Robo anywhere.

Luigi's Mansion 1 is coming out this year. That's good to know. I don't have the Gamecube version.

I couldn't find any official screen protectors in my area, so I bought a pack from some unknown, half-assed looking brand being all that was available. The one I put on the touchscreen made it unable to be used and I had to remove it. What a piece of shit.

I started Metroid anyway but saved after a few rooms. Will continue tomorrow as I don't have work and maybe make a topic once I understand the mechanics a bit more.

Bought Ever Oasis. It was the only copy left in my area. Nintendo NEVER restock their stuff in my country.

I'm not going to play Spirit Tracks again. Can't stand games where I have to use the stylus for EVERYTHING. Tap to move, twice to dodge roll, swipes or spinning motions to do attacks (basic ones so all the time) and having to blow into the mic to activate that wind thing. Not doing this anymore. It's nonsense and I don't understand why Nintendo is obsessed with this shit.

In Metroid SR, it's limited. You can do everything with buttons except for changing your beam, though the icons are positioned on the right side of the touchscreen, right beside the face buttons. You can tap them with your thumb but even that can be annoying because sometimes it doesn't register.

Roy, does A Link Between Worlds also require you to use the stylus to attack?

Not that I recall! I think it was a pretty classical style of Zelda. Just like playing A Link to the Past on your SNES.

Quit Samus Returns and trying out Chibi Robo Zip Lash.

It's a side scroller and Chibi Robo uses his plug and cord as whip to attack enemies and get around the levels such as using it to hover like a helicopter or attaching it to certain surfaces and zooming up.

Ive only done the first stage but Im enjoying it so far.
There are things to collect like trash and coins which contribute to your score so there's some replayability.

Disgustingly, the amiibo is required to acces world 7. Lucky I bought the game+amiibo bundle when it was on sale.

I get the feeling I won't stick with this game either. Very simple side scrolling with boring combat and tons of collectibles. You can get these toys from a vending machine by doing something with the amiibo. It can level up or something but I got sick of scanning it and it asks like 3 times just to do one thing.

What have I got left? Hey Pikmin, Zelda OoT, Ever Oasis, and Luigi's Mansion 2.

I played a little of Okamiden the other day. I often mention Okami on this site as one of my favorite games of all time but I never speak of Okamiden, a DS exclusive. I have 100% finished it, but I wanted to check the NG+. It offers a few costumes and a new weapon.

I really want to play Ever Oasis, but it's an action RPG with town development and stuff so I can imagine if I like it, I'll be at it for a while.

Yikes. This really makes me never want to touch this game. I have OoT on 3DS, and was considering grabbing this (it's forever $80 here though) but after this video I don't think I will.

If you have 24 mins spares check it out. It goes over all the changes in detail. Couldn't find one for OoT. I wonder if it's just as bad.

This topic is old but maybe I have recommendations you haven’t tried yet...

I don’t have many 3DS games, but Radiant Historia is a pretty good JRPG. Pretty interesting combat but the exposition can be a bit annoying

As for DS, there’s some really good stuff on there. Bangai-O Spirits is an insane action/puzzle hybrid where the screen is littered with hundreds of projectiles and you can die in under a second. Lot of neat mechanics in this.

Not really hidden, but Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia is my favorite CV released since the classic days. It abandons some of the standard “Igavania” elements for an increased challenge and a level select rather than one connected castle. Amazing soundtrack too.

And one of my favorite games of all time, Ghost Trick. It’s a text-heavy puzzle game, but it’s so unique and entertaining in every way that I can’t help but love it. Can’t reccomend it enough if you haven’t played it.

>MM 3DS
I played Majoras Mask after playing the remake, and the changes are very noticeable. It’s hard to get your hands on(unless it’s on the Wii U shop?) but I would say just play the original. Nerrel makes a lot of great points in his video.

>Haven't heard a lot of great things about Return of Samus.
It's probably because of the lolparry system that the game could go without and the fact that the fanmade 2d remake of Return of Samus feels close to what people expected from the title.

>Ghost Trick
Top 3 ds games for me, I usually bring it up on gfaqs as a example of one of the last games that I played with legit good story and gameplay.

How did I forget this.

>Samus Returns
I said this on Gfaqs on the Prime 4 board, but I really didn’t like this game much, pretty much exactly for the reasons you listed. The art style also did nothing for me.

>Ghost Trick
100% agree. The game is something of a gold standard for me in terms of creativity. It’s also one of the funniest games I’ve ever played. You ever get into Ace Attorney? I adore the original trilogy, but couldn’t really get into the rest of the series.

>GT's creativity
Word, I wish more devs would create unique gameplay concepts and deliver it in such a creative and engaging way, everything in the game oozes with creativity including even minor details such as the animations of characters walking or doing any sort of stuff, it's one of the few games I love and don't feel like seeing a sequel because I'm sure they'll never nail it as hard as they did it with the original title.

It's also interesting that the game is so text-heavy but unlike most games considered pseudo-novels you have such control of your character at all times and the game never really just guides you through the hand instead letting you go whatever you're supposed to go.

>AA
I played the first 5 mainline titles and the two Investigations titles, the first 3 are great, 4 was a step in the wrong direction and the weakest entry, 5 is just okay. Haven't picked any of the 3ds titles yet (6, Layton or the Meiji period titles).

If you haven't played them, the two investigation games are really great as well with 2 having one of the best plot structures in the whole series.

The writing and music are extremely creative too. Game is a real joy to experience. Even if the exact same team worked on a sequel I would probably think it’s missing something. Would love for them to do something completely new though.

>AA
I played the first Investigations, thought it was decent but I had just come off the trilogy so I wasn’t as interested. Really didn’t like Apollo Justice, and Dual Destinies was alright but I felt like it was exceptionally wordy, even for those games, and a couple cases were forgettable. Actually enjoyed Layon vs PW quite a lot, although I haven’t played a Layton since the third game or something. Is Shu Takumk back working on the series? I know he didn’t for a little while.

I ended up barely touching this thing. Sold Metroid because I just couldn't enjoy it at all. Same woth Chibi Robo but haven't sold it yet.

I like Ever Oasis though.
