Aye guys any way I can download an app to my system memory? My SD card is full and I need to update Pokemon X.
3DS Friendcode: 5198-2496-8383
"Now Count up your Sins"- Kamen Rider W
*I was an idiot and removed the SD card while the 3DS was on. I would have gone batsh!t insane if I lost my Pokémon X save file.
I don't know if this counts as double post, but here's a new post.
There will be a new Nintendo 3DS XL model on March 14th! It is coming out in both the US and UK for $199 and I'm guessing Ł199?
Be careful though. Scumbag Nintendo at it again. Surprise! This Yoshi-branded 3DS XL that comes out the same day as Yoshi's New Island doesn't even include the game!
Also, Nintendo finally showing us what their QoL plans were. Overpriced board games because they feature Nintendo characters. Again, Scumbag Nintendo.
^what does this have anything to do with this thread? It's a Nintendo videogame... Minus the video part. Just call it an exclusive Nintendo game.
Does anyone else get the feeling Nintendo, as far as systems go,is becoming a company that relies on gimmicks alone to get sales?
Keiji Inafune is making a "2D side-scrolling action game" called Azure Striker Gunvolt, which will be released on the eShop this summer.
There's also a third Denpa Men game announced, with a demo coming in May. Save data is transferable from the first two games as well as the demo.
Speaking of which, the second game is on sale on the eShop for $8.39 down from $11.99 (so 30% off) until the 13th.

I remember when 3D Gaming was such a huge push for Sony and Nintendo in 2011. Then in early 2012, Sony basically tried to brush it off and pretend it never happened, and Nintendo just said "f@ck it" six months ago, and released the 2DS. Ahh, fads. Good times. I wonder what fads we'll see come and go this gen?
Nintendo fails to understand that people just want to sit down with a controller or a handheld and have a good time playing good games. They were lucky with motion and touch controls last gen because in gaming that was fairly new. But this now those things are completely obsolete and don't even add that much, sometimes they even hinder games, an example is Mario Kart DS, to look at the map you had to look at the bottom screen which is not very practical as you can't really see what's happening on the top one. 3D is so bad that I can't bring myself to buy any game that has "3D" in the title because I just know it's going to suck. I just hope they next handheld doesn't have any of this crap.
Some games are actually great to play in 3D. Fire Emblem Awakening is fantastic in 3D, and I'd recommend playing that with 3D on at least a few times. Even Animal Crosing New Leaf is nice in 3D every once in awhile. I'll throw X/Y and Kid Icarus: Uprising in there too, since those were cool in 3D where applicable. Point is, the 3D may be nothing more than a simple gimmick, but there's a wide assortment of games that pulled it off well enough to make it worth having fun with every now and then. Otherwise, you can always just turn it off.
As far as Mario Kart DS went, I always found the bottom screen to largely be a benefit. You could detect items and notice fake item blocks much more easily, and it wasn't affected by Bloopers. Whenever I played Mario Kart DS, I spent probably 80% of the time looking at the bottom screen because I found it easier to play that way.

Yeah, like the three posts below you said, 3D is not mandatory. Just turn it off... Especially in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. The 3D is very picky where you have to keep searching for the right position, so add the fact that you'll be constantly pressing buttons and moving your 3DS will cause you a giant headache. 3D's fine in platformers and turn based games though.
The 2DS was a great idea. The 3DS has an on/off switch (slide?) for the 3D, but instead they just completely took away the 3D Compatibility and managed to drop the price by a good amount. Not like any developer is even making full use of the 3D anyways
But removing the 3D, along with some other changes, allowed them to significantly lower the price (during xmas sales, it was as low as $99) and completely eliminate the questions surrounding 3D exposure and developing eyes. I purchased a 2DS this Christmas for a local children's hospital. Even though the 3D can be disabled on the regular 3ds/XL, I wouldn't take that risk in providing that to them. And I've met more than one parent with kids at Starbucks and McDonalds who say they purchased the 2DS for their kid specifically because of the low price.
I still love my XL, but the little experience I have with the 2DS has been pretty good. If I was getting into the market now, it'd be a very hard decision between the two versions.
Also, FWIW: Target seems to have an exclusive 2DS deal that comes with Pokemon X/Y pre-installed for $150. That's....not a whole lot of a discount from a regularly priced $120 or whatever console, but it is a bit of a discount.
