    To be more exact, or from what I've seen, it seems to be a side-scrolling RPG game from Atlus, who apparently is as good as 343 Industries, makers of Halo 4. I tried getting it tonight while I was out in the mall, but both the possible sellers were sold out xD

    The hell? Atlus only localizes games, and it's not an RPG so much as it's a beat'em up with RPG stat upgrades.

    Why would you compare Atlus to 343 anyway? They're nothing alike.

    Atlus Japan, maybe, but Atlas USA is strictly a publisher and nowadays is barely even related to Atlus Japan, aside from having an exclusive contract to localize any games they wish to. They localize much, much more than games by Atlus Japan.

    Well, from what I can tell, they're two gaming companies that are on the side, yet they were praised for the work on some of their games.

    Ah my bad thought you meant Atlus as a whole.

    343 is new, they've made one game, and ported another. They are exclusively a Halo developer. As Clamps already mentioned, Atlus' USA branch is a publisher. The two are literally nothing alike.

    I believe there was a promotion where if you bought a 3DS XL recently you got a free download of a full retail game.

    So the dude behind Mutant Mudds is getting worried about 3DS piracy.

    http://joolswatsham.blogspot.co.uk/2...ds-piracy.html
    If piracy gets bad on the 3DS, we will have no choice but to stop supporting the platform with new games. Some say that piracy leads to more game sales, claiming that it enables players to try before they buy. ********. The percentage of people who will spend money on a game that they already got for free is surely very small – especially with so many “free” games already in the market. The line between what should/should not be free is getting very blurry.

    If these hackers really want to mess with the guts of a 3DS, why not become legit developers for it and let the world enjoy their talents? Many of today’s great programmers used to be hackers back in the day. It is a great way to learn the craft. Putting ones efforts towards the creation of legit games instead of potentially crippling the market seems like a much more fulfilling path.

    I thought they were still working on 3DS piracy?

    Also he's completely wrong, there are plenty of DS and Wii games I wouldn't have ever bought if it weren't for piracy. Both Zack and Wiki and The Great Giana Sisters were games that I was on the fence about, but only bought because when I pirated them the games were good enough that I felt they were worth a purchase. If people are pirating a game and don't buy it afterwards, they generally weren't going to buy the game in the first place.

    Yeah, but companies will always attribute a single download to a lost sale.

    I will never disagree with you there. It's just the way things go.

    I saw the free game as well. I was incredibly interested in it since I just received a 3DS XL for Christmas. Guess the US loses out again. Out of curiosity, what kind of SD card do you guys use in your 3DS? I am looking at expanding past the 4GB they gave me. I know 32GB is good enough, but if I going to pay for a SD card, I want to buy it one time only. I was looking at 64GB at the very least.

    64GB wont work. The 3DS can't read SDXC.

    A 32GB SD card should last the entire system's life provided you don't want to buy every game that will ever be made for the system anyway. 64GB would be nice, but it seems like it'd be overkill considering most games are barely scratching 1GB in the first place.

    Alternatively, it might just fill up faster if you're the kind of people who likes dumping a lot of music files and 3D videos.
