I just got my XL for games 3ds doesn't have. What to get?

#1SpiffaNiffPosted 2/9/2013 9:07:53 PM
I ordered my 3dsXL. I'm really excited, but most of the games I've been excited for on previous handhelds, aren't out yet. So what do I get?

I want....

Animal Crossing
Luigi's Mansion
Advance Wars
An original Zelda title

and I'm very hesitant on Harvest Moon: A new Beginning. I loved older HM games, so I don't want this one to try and be flashy and lose that old school tending crops and farming gameplay.

So what else is out there for me to enjoy and why?
I know its a general and over done question, but I'm realizing the cheaper 3ds games are hard to come by. So what's worth the full sticker price.

Thanks guys!

The Elite Four of the 3DS are as follows:

- Virtue's Last Reward
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Kid Icarus: Uprising
- Fire Emblem: Awakening


Also very much worth getting:

- Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
- Resident Evil: Revelations
- Mario Kart 7

See, I've heard alot about some of those though.

Virtue's Last reward is really heavy japanese anime no?
and Kid Icarus nearly requires a circle pad pro?

I'm left handed so I could never really enjoy games that require using the stylus to control the camera or I'd be all over Resident Evil. I'm glad they're doing a console release so I can get a taste.

Kid Icarus is fine without circle pad pro, but seems to be pretty tricky for left-handed people.

Virtue's Last Reward is basically 33% puzzles, 67% psychological thriller. It's one of the very rare mystery novels were the solutions to the mysteries are better than the mysteries themselves. Contrary to most of the genre, the ending is super satisfying, and the game is a complete mindf**k throughout. Read some reviews if you're interested.

Two things to keep in mind:

1. Play the previous game, 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors for the DS, first. Don't be afraid about it being a DS game, it holds up perfectly thanks to the artstyle.
2. There's a save bug that's very easy to avoid but still annoying, look that up if you're going to play it.

A New Beginning is supposed to be very retro, and not gimmicky. Out of all the games, get that one.

I didn't know Harvest moon had a lot of customizing and stuff in this one.

I loved that aspect from Friends of mineral town, when you could expand the house. I am super stoked to get this now.
