Yeah after playing this game for about four hours, I'd also recommend to anyone. It's pretty cool.

Yeah I hear ya on the voicing part, still though not half bad considering one guy made it. As for a controller, I'm using a xbox 360 controller and it's doing well. Very simple button lay out which is a good thing.

It's a great game, though it's a bit rough around the edges, such as the voice acting. Totally worth it though.

Guys. Hey. Hey guys hey. Guess what? They announced that Retro City Rampage will be ported over to the 3DS.

And I agree, Foxstar. I've played the demo of Project X Zone. Liked the gameplay and the character selection(OMG MEGA MAN X IS IN THIS GAME!!! *SQUEEEEEEEEE*) despite a few quibles.

Has anyone ever tried to go on a GMod build server recently? It's like War of the Servers over there. Went on three the other day, all of them ended up being crashed by some spammer...

I don't get why people are spazzing over it. It's meant primarily for children (considering the 3DS's safety warning) and also doubles as a cheaper option for people who don't particularly care about the 3D. Those of us who don't like it don't have to buy it, and unlike if we don't buy the 3DS, Vita, Wii U, PS4, or Xbox One, not buying it does not shut us out of getting any new games (provided we already have a 3DS, anyway).

It's coming out when Pokémon X and Y do, and they want those games to be as accessible as possible. I have no complaints.

There's a reason why they made it... :| My counter argument, yet I could care less about the 2Ds since the last time I bought something like that was a nintendo Sp.

I'll be quite honest, I don't like 3D at all...but I do want to play some of the games on the 3DS...

That being said, I don't want to play something that doesn't fold. It's just too big without the fold in my honest opinion. Not to mention, just like with the DS, USA get's cooler colours than Europe (subject to opinion) AND apparently will cost about $40 more in UK than in USA. This type of stuff just get's me mad though, so meh...

Yeah what was it, I think Australia is paying something like $80 bucks plus for triple A games. Absolutely ridiculous. *Cough* go Pc. The whole folding thing though I could see being an issue though think about 5 year olds. Hinges don't last. Then again, I got my gameboy Sp when I was still pretty young so meh. Up to the consumer.

The original DS had poor hinges...but that's it. My little brother has never broke a DS (that includes the original one), and he must've been at least 6 when he first got it. My SP still works too, and I got it as soon as it came out (when I was 8).

I think the guy in the video you linked just knew some spoilt kids who didn't know how to treat their gifts with respect...

The cool thing about the 3DS is you can turn off the 3D with the switch. The main reason the 2DS exists is to be cheaper, more durable (not to say the 3DS isn't still pretty durable), and give peace of mind to parents of young kids.

There has only been one mechanical failure in the history of Nintendo's hardware casing, and that was a hinge. Maybe they wanted to cover their weak spots. :P

It could also be some sort of nostalgia thing... the Game Boy didn't fold (until the SP, I mean)

This will probably be the biggest factor. If it still plays 3ds games with out that 3D crap and it's cheaper, why not go for it?

Tossing aside the mountain of nondisclosure agreements I signed, those hinges are easily damaged. If you want customers to be happy, you eliminate annoyances and if this is marketed for younger kids... that's a pretty good reason not to have something easy to snap in half.

I don't think the hinges are that fragile. They just aren't Nintendo levels of indestructible. My DS Lite is the only thing to suffer hinge damage and that took years.

My original DS suffered hinge damage after years. Or more specifically after my mother buried it under 400Kg of make up in her draw after I failed a test, so it wasn't exactly the consoles or my doing. I don't think it's much of an issue if your sensible and don't throw the thing down flights of stairs.

My DS held up pretty well actually, although I didn't really play all that much on it. Mainly just Hotel Dusk.

Strangely enough I've only owned 2 hand-helds, a PSP and a DS, and I only really played one game on each. Hotel Dusk on the DS and Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core on the PSP. (Although the PSP is very useful for the wi-fi!)

Apparently in Pokemon X and Y, the starters you can choose are Fennekin, Froakie, Chespin, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. Look.

My understanding was that you can get one of the Kanto starters later. Not as additional options at the beginning.

Well, in addition to that my Japanese friend showed me news on some game website I don't remember, that said you don't get to choose Fenniken, Froakie, or Chespin, just the Kanto starters, so I don't know. I guess we'll find out when it releases.

Interesting, probably. Smart, not really. I expect it would be similar to the few over times where other Gen starters were available on earlier versions ingame.

Although it would be awesome if you could acquire one of the 1st Generation starters as more part of the storyline.

I wouldn't count on it, as the setting of gen 6 is an alternate reality version of France. Whereas all the main series games that involved getting a starter from an older generation were set in an alternate reality version of Japan.
Because of the whole, different part of the globe = no old pokemon, deal they started with gen 5; I doubt they will change this policy in their version of Europe.

Has anyone heard of Black Shades? It's an old Mac game from 2002 that was entered in the uDevGames contest for that year. It's actually pretty advanced for a game of its age. Loads of fun, too! (Except the last level. Just hope that you don't get that far.)

I'm currently playing Dragon's Crown on my Vita. It's alright in small doses, but doesn't really draw me in for long hauls.

Also Project X Zone gets really repetitive the longer it goes on. Battles now run me at least a hour, hour and a half.
