Author Topic: It's the 3DS!  (Read 35677 times)

Played the 3DS for the first time yesterday, at a shopping centre demo. Nintendogs was neat, and I liked the AR cards, but I found I felt a bit sick after only a couple of minutes of play (headache, eye strain, nausea). I'm just wondering if this is a common reaction, even after such a short playtime? (the 3D was all of the way up, but even still...)
If my son could decimate Lego cities with his genitals, I'd be [darn] proud.

It only happens the first couple of times that you use the 3D.  After that, if you're like me, you won't notice any nasty side-effects.

All this talk of gaming-induced nausea is beginning to remind me something...

I've found that after playing in 3d for only a few hours, my eyes became accustomed to the 3D, and ever since then I've been able to see the 3D as naturally as the 2D.
Gently push a piece of the tube containing the intersection along the fourth dimension, out of the original three dimensional space.

Same here; after only a bit of it seeming weird, the 3D screen now seems totally natural. I have even kind of started to "think" in 3D, if that makes sense. Like when I picture doing something in the game in my head.

The update that uncripples the online stuff will be here June 6th, apparently.  Thoughts?

If Metroid II is one of the offered titles, I'd like to pick that up.

The same week as E3. COINCIDENCE?

It's probably just going to be Super Mario Land... which I will buy.

Actually, Link's Awakening is supposed to be one of the first titles available.  Thinking of getting that, too...

But it all depends on how much they're going to wanna charge for the games.

I am beginning to think about getting one of these, since i will have money soon and I need to replace my slowly falling apart DS lite.

My DS's touch screen is progressively going to [dukar], but spending nearly $300 to replace it with a system that has no games would feel like a waste.

So it's not selling well eh?  Well maybe it's because of the steep price tag, or that there are very fame games worthwhile out yet?

It's the latter, definitely. The Wii was the same price, but it had Zelda

That's what you get for not having a Mario launch title, Nintendo!

I honestly think they should've launched it with a game from one of their popular franchises, or any popular franchise for the matter. Even a new Castlevania or Ninja Gaiden would've tempted me to get it on launch. They should've just pushed the launch back and released it with Ocarina of Time 3D.
The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

Yes, BP, but a $250 price tag was pretty reasonable for a home console.  A handheld?  Eh, while it's not ridiculously high, it's a little more than what some people with tighter budgets might willing to pay.

So some gamers, it's a combination of price tag and lack of worthwhile launch titles.
In my case, I don't have much money, and the only game I know of that I'm looking forward to is Paper Mario.  Until that comes out, the only purpose that a 3DS would serve for me is some Pokemon trading.
