My eye sight is about **** anyway. I'm partially colour blind and I think I'm becoming short sighted. I've just got a SpecSavers voucher from work to get them tested.

Yes, I'm a massive ****. :awe:

She was going to surprise me with a new one but I told her I had seen a second hand one for sale which I wanted to get and it kinda ruined her plan :awe:

I'm getting one with Mario Land, Mario Kart, Zelda and Ridge Racer. TBH I only really want it for Mario Land but I thought I would get a couple of other titles too.


:thumbup:

Super Mario is brilliant, and I'm really enjoying Mario Kart 7 too.

Just got this. Main game and periscope mode are brilliant, strategy bit a total dud.

Metacritic. Follow the top rated games and you'll be sweet.

Personally, the ones I've enjoyed and played to the end are...
Mario Kart 7.
Zelda Link Between Worlds.
The two Fire Emblems.
The Mario RPGs.
Super Mario 3d Land.
Randomly play any Pokemon game...
Loving robots since the 80's.

Got OoT and MM to do first, having never cleared them myself.

Picross 3D 2 is proving unbeatable atm.

Agree with all the above. Nintendo have made some superb first party games on the 3DS. The Sega Classics are also essential.

Pullblox is great. Once you pass the many many practice stages.

I must admit I played Pokemon Picross quite a bit on mine. I'd never played a picross game before though so I dunno how good it'd be if you've scratched that itch already.

I haven't touched them in a year but I loved the Streetpass games. It probably helped that Nath was doing them too. If you find yourself on a train often they're a great way to spend a few minutes between stops. With all the Streetpass games the ones that look best end up getting boring first and the ones that look most boring end up growing on you the most. The Fantasy Zone style one is brill but doesn't last long for example.

I thoroughly recommend Picross DS, it's brilliant. (The Pokemon one is the same game at core). The 3D ones are more complex in their execution, not sure they are as immediately enjoyable as the 2D ones.

Actually have Pullblox already as it turns out it's called Pushmo outside Europe :awe:

Another game I've really enjoyed has been the remake of Steel Empire. Although I hate blimps I used to love it on the MD and the 3DS one's great.

I'd second pj's recommendation for the Sega classics remakes too - they're excellent ports.

Cleared Ocarina of Time, which left me distinctly underwhelmed. All that travelling around and headscratching about what I was supposed to be doing where was very irritating and took the majority of the game up. Definitely not best game of all time.

Then started Master Quest and died 30 times in the Deku Tree due to the double damage and faster enemies. Not my bag.

Wondering if I should continue with Majora's Mask? I've not yet cleared the first dungeon and it took me 2 weeks to figure out that's where I was supposed to go. The time pressure and having to repeat the same sequence of events and dialogue each time I run out of time is really doing my head in.

Leave it and just go to Link Between Worlds?

The eShop Picross games are entertaining, although they do seem to have included puzzles that are pure guess work...
