For me this can be a greatest lesbian porn web page via the internet (nevertheless realsquirt is certainly close). All which is a downer in my situation is the females certainly not Communicate with one. As expected, because so many are and also the and don't speak out English language, that may be

I can't believe so many people are bitching about region locks yet fawning over remakes/ports we've seen years ago.

While I was hoping for for a slightly cheaper price (I was expecting $200), its not really too outrageous given its capabilities. This is the first that I heard of the battery thing though.

[url=#user_comment_53594]@Le_Myz[/url] I agree, I mean, I've used the man:co stores alot for items, and I'm still looking forward to 3DS. I mean, for the first time ever, the pokemons and battles in-game will be 100% animated. Finally found out that satoshi aint dead, just some idiot on twitter who mixed him up. gonna kill him

Jo, I get that it's a comic, and you need to go for the humor value, but assuming the gamers who go nuts for digital frivolities are the same ones who shun the DS is a little far fetched. It makes it seem like you're taking cheap shots at the gamer community. I don't know, maybe it's just me...

[url=#user_comment_53503]@Dusk[/url]: I've heard and looked into it, it's just natural pessimism. That and the fact I follow most techie creeds, including "if it works, don't f-ck with it." in this case, Why should I get 3D when I can simply enjoy good old games with no problems. Or new games, for that matter.

I had hoped that Pokémon would eventually "grow up" alongside its original audience, but not a lot has changed in the basic design, it's been frustratingly iterative after Gold/Silver (okay, maybe RSE had a bit). There should be a console game and MMO by now, spice it up already Nintendo!

[url=#user_comment_53496]@Kyono[/url]: The way the 3DS does the 3D effect requires you to be very close to it (IIRC, the ideal range is about 6-10 inches away, much closer than you'd want to be to a big screen television). It works by creating two subtly different images, and sending one to each eye to create 3D.

(cont.) Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo rereleased FR/LG on 3DS with just the new mons and the same old art assets, but maybe a new minigame where you blow into the mic and take a 3d photo of your hand (while waggling) to increase the success rate of a pokeball.

People will buy the newest pokemon games because they will have ***raised sprites*** (OMG! SO REALISTIC!), and a few new pokemon in each version. Maybe they'll do some more remakes, and we'll end up with Magma Red/Sky Blue, Oyster Pearl and Bladder Silver.

I'll be waiting for the price drop or 3DS light or 3DSi. Only 1 of the launch titles looks interesting to me and the price is as much as the Wii was at launch for something a little better than N64 graphics.

3D illusions never worked for me anyway due to being born cross-eyed.
Kyono
about 11 years ago
Personally, even with all the other issues, I still look at the idea of a 3DS, and just fail to see how it'll work. I see 3D TVs just coming out, and I can barely get them to work, even with the glasses. looking at these large flatscreen TVs and not seeing it work, I'm doubtful. It might work, but..

[url=#user_comment_53478]@Fascist[/url]: Thing is, I (being European) would never have gotten to play Etrian Odyssey 2 and 3 if the DS wasn't region free. If people hadn't imported Ouendan enough for the makers to realize there WAS a market, we would have never had EBA (which is exceedingly awesome). And so on.

Team Fortress is not very inspired, Wow is like a bad version of EverQuest, and the 3DS isn't quite as ambitious as VR. So I see where they all fit together.

I'd still take the 3DS over the other two.
Troll Bizkit
about 11 years ago
3D is far from new. If you ask Nintendo, they practically invented everything. It makes me laugh. Still, I enjoy 3D stuff. This isn't even close the full VR that I experienced in the 90's, but it's less clunky, way cheaper, and the polygons are textured.

Ethiopian black market? More like perfectly valid US market to Europe and perfectly valid Japan market to whomever the language isn't an issue. Also, I doubt not many criticizing the 3DS price point were the same people buying virtual goods. Just the same, the strip was amusing as always :D

You know, I honestly don't know what the problem is with the 3DS being region locked. The majority of the games worth playing will be getting international releases anyway.

I've got money to burn so price isn't an issue for me. I agree though that the 3D doesn't really attract my attention. As for a 3DS Lite or w/e you guys are waiting for, the 3DS is nearly the same size of the DS Lite, and is lighter to boot. Also I say the third installment of pokemon will be Beige!

[url=#user_comment_53443]@Bob[/url] & @ AckAckAck Thought no AC Adapter and only a cradle was just too stupid to be true. Battery life is still a problem considering it's touted as a portable system.

I'll probably end up getting it when it comes out, for the sole reason of I have enough best buy gift cards lying arounds that the price suddenly isn't a big deal. But I do agree that if you do want to wait for the 3DS Lite or whatever the heck it'll be called, it's hardly a bad idea.

Never purchased anything from the TF2 store and never will, hell I even delete my crates as not to contribute. WoW is flat out double dipping.

The 3DS with its horrible battery life and lackluster launch list can wait for a price drop. It was bumped from day one purchase to "within the decade".

Nice one Jo.When you compare these things like that, people look silly. [url=#user_comment_53440] @Altherix[/url] Battery life is yet to be determined,and it comes with an AC adapter. So region lock is really the only thing (the EURO price isn't exactly set yet) Also, I don't think 3D affects price that much

When they first announced the 3DS I was like :

Then, when they announced the price I was like :
Will I ever get it? :'(

Knowing myself, I will be getting it eventually unless it totally flops like Virtual Boy. But no way am I going to be an early adopter like I was with the Wii.
Altherix

Region locked, low battery life, can't play while it's in the recharging cradle. That's for starters why it's a bad buy, nothing to do with price.

Perhaps people are simply afraid to spend a lot of money on something new, while smaller transactions for a game/service they already take part in is a safer option as you know exactly what you will get from it.

The reality of this almost stings, if you know, i didn't just steal every fucking game off the internet and use an emulator anyway, play it, beat it, repeat with next game.

But I`m smart, trading 8 crates for a key is a great deal, you remove crap and get a random chance for an unusual hat.

NO, just no, maybe they raise the cartridge data size to 2 GB, but saying that 3D technology is a good reason for that kind of price is just a marketing bullshit, and on top of that, it was region locked!

My only question, like the PS3 for BluRay, does it price competitively with an actual 3D camera by specs? Not that I bought a PS3, I still think BluRay is a joke for video and I'll wait for Holographic Verstile Discs with 500 GB storage, k thx by :P

With how I play games, I buy very few now. This naturally means that buying a brand new system has a high cost per game for me. I'm still rolling my Hot Rod Red DS Phat I got with Mario Kart DS. Personally I'm not interested in "3D" images, and I still play my GBA games, so I'm sticking with Phatty.
