The other hardware that launched today

Although not a "new" console or handheld per se... just a new colour (and new Zelda game!).

This is my first 3DS so does anyone have recommendations on some good 3DS games? I already have Mario Kart, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, and Fire Emblem: Awakening on my list. Thought I've never played any of the Fire Emblem games, it sounds like something I might like.

Also, when I open it up, it makes a very audible clicking noise. Is this normal?

I can't wait to dig into A Link Between Worlds. But I gotta finish Wind Waker HD first...

Yeah, that looks awesome. Unfortunately, I already have a 3DS XL, so it's not going to fall into my hands.

As for 3DS Games, here's my recommendations:


Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (Definitive version -- skip if you have the Wii version)
Etrian Odyssey IV (hardcore dungeon crawler -- be warned)
Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl (hardcore dungeon crawler -- be warned)
HarmoKnight (Rhythm Platformer)
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Shin Megami Tensei IV (JRPG)
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked (SRPG)
Shinobi 3DS (Platformer)
Super Mario 3D Land

3DS e-shop:

Gunman Clive (Awesome western Mega Man type game and only $2)
Mighty Switch Force 1 and 2 (Puzzle platformers)
Mutant Mudds (Platformer)
Pushmo (puzzle game -- possibly the best game on the system)
Crashmo (Pushmo sequel)
Shantae: Risky's Revenge (platformer)
Steamworld Dig (Metroidvania)
VVVVVV (Platformer -- Super Meat Boy difficulty)

I second the Shin Megami Tensei games. They're awesome. That clicking noise is indeed normal.

Also worth mentioning:

* Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (if you don't have it for another system)
* Animal Crossing: New Leaf (uh, if you are into stuff like that, SHUT UP DON'T JUDGE ME)
* Fire Emblem: Awakening (THIS IS A GREAT GAME, BUY IT)
* Heroes of Ruin (if you like Diablo style games, this is a decent one)

Welcome to the 3DS club.

Hmm, I kind of want one but this thing is just a little too new for any hope of a sweet Black Friday deal. If there's a good Vita deal I may grab one... just because of all the free PS+ games... and that streaming PS4 gameplay will come in handy at some point.. right...? Maybe...?

3DS does have some nice games though. One day it shall be mine.

No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!
