Do any of you guys buy retail games from the eShop?

Ape Escape is notable as the first video game to require the use of the Dual Analog Controller for gameplay.

Only when it's not cheaper somewhere else. All games, even the old ones are MSRP price which is totally lame.

I did buy NSMB2 when it first came out because it was the first retail game but I haven't bought once since.

I'll get Brain Training and maybe Animal Crossing. I'm looking forward to when shops will start selling download cards for games cause then I can get games without paying stupid Nintendo prices

The only reason I got Paper Mario digitally was for the Donkey Kong promo. Otherwise, there's no decent incentive. The games aren't any cheaper and you don't get a box.

I got Paper Mario for the DK incentive, New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the double coins, and I plan on getting Fire Emblem because I didn't preorder it (but my boyfriend did so I still get the bonus!) I definitely plan on getting Animal Crossing from the eShop because that game is going to be a game I play a little bit at a time.

I would suggest not getting digital retail games if possible.

Its just too risky to put that kind of money into your 3ds when there is no account system.

I bought Style Savvy: Trendsetters from e-shop because the stores in my country never stock them.

Yeah sure. We know it's because you're a 25 year old Harley-riding tattooed guy, and you just couldn't bring yourself to buy it in person.
