    So after spending about 70 hours on my PSP to finish Tactics Ogre I'm back to my 3DS and Pilotwings and I still find it a bit disappointing. The game is fun, but very lightweight, and I honestly forget about the 3D effect two minutes into it which is clearly NOT GOOD. I am not buying Ocarina of Time once again as I know that game by HEART, so there is absolutely FUCK ALL for me on the horizon until the Resi game (not Mercenaries) comes out.

    It's here!

    I cannot believe how bad Mario Land looks. It truly was a simpler time. When are we getting Link's Awakening? It's not on the Virtual Console. Will it be Thursday/Friday when they shop updates?

    They really should have launched the 3DS NOW, with OoT 3D being the main launch title, the eShop ready from box with a handful of killer titles coming up within the first 3-6 months

    It's out now! I just downloaded it

    annoyingly you only get a few dozen Pokemon, you have to share with people, not unlike the PuzzleSwap I guess. I wonder if we can TEAM UP somehow

    I did a system transfer between the DSi and 3DS and it's Pikmin moving the files over. It's so freaking cute!

    I think I need to buy one purely for this!

    I've always imagined the Purple Pikmin (Pikman?) being something COB would be in to.

    Has anyone pre-ordered OOT? Don't know where to do order it from, apparently different stores are getting their own bonuses.

    <object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XyVCFRLJCyE?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XyVCFRLJCyE?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></object>

    The GAME preorder bonuses are really shit. I think it was Germany who have some amazing deals.

    I'm just going with the standard release from ShopTo cos it's CHEAPEST.

    So it's been announced that this is getting a worldwide price drop in August. In Japan it's going from £196 to £118 with it been reduced by 'about a third' in Europe to about £150 (retailers can still sell it for whatever they want though)

    Oh and to us LOYAL FANZ who have already bought one there will be an "Ambassador program" which grants us 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games as well as 10 free NES Virtual Console games.

    Selling like COLD CAKES then :D

    That price was always beyond RIDICULOUS. I'm waiting for a redesign so I can play it without constantly hitting the OFF switch :zombie:

    Kotaku were saying RandyBlue were going to start putting content on in 3D.

    Same, I'll be all over it when they announce the 3DSliteslim3000i. Til then (and til they get ONE good AND original game) they can fuck off.

    The whole 3DS has been a dud so far hasn't it? i haven't been paying attention to sales and what not but it seems there are no games around? The last major thing was RE and that was received poorly and so far the only good game is the Zelda remake.

    And RIGHT ON CUE here come the same old Negative Nancies who HATE EVERY FACET OF LIFE ITSELF (and probably haven't even picked up the thing).

    Yes it's disappointing they've reduced the price. It's such un-Nintendo thing to do but they've obviously panicked a bit because of that fucking Vita (:manson:). I for one could not be happier with my 3DS. It's a great little machine, I got it for a pretty good price and the amount of joy I've got from playing Ocarina Of Time cannot be quantified by money. That we're getting undisputed classics like Metroid Fusion and Yoshi's Island isn't so bad at all.

    YES I'M A NINTENDO LOON SO FUCK Y'ALL. REGGIE 4EVA :disco:

    Anyway, it's not unheard of for Nintendo. Anyone remember the emergency N64 price drop about two minutes after the launch? At least they're giving away some free (old) games this time.

    Didn't the N64 launch at like £500 with £70 games?

    Naturally being a gay with massive disposable income even at 13 I SNAPPED ONE UP!

    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS MEANS. Could you please explain, preferably using a reference I can relate to. Like the collected works of Lindsay Lohan.

    My DS was stolen in October 2009 and I never bothered replacing it, but the real heartache was the Metroid Fusion cartridge that was in it at the time :(

    The price drop + Fusion could definitely get me interested!
