i would recommend the 3DS over the 2DS, logie. im not the biggest fan of 3D, but that console makes wonderful use of it. plus, it can be turned off or toned down at any time with a slider. it would be a shame to miss out on the consoles defining feature for the sake of a few dollars.
ordered a copy of the thursday war. really looking forward to it, havent read a good book for a while. what are you guys up to?
