Just remember my car insurance is paid off for the next couple months and I have a little spending money now. So I bought Luigi's Mansion and Fire Emblem off the eshop. One thing I wish nintendo did that the vita can do is download while gaming. Sucks having to wait for the download and not being able to do anything. I'm surprised how fast stuff downloads off of Nintendo's network. So that is a plus.

MK7 (pre-installed)

SM3DL (free from XL promo)

Tetris Axis

Nano Assault EX

3D Game Collection: 55 n' 1 (was previously a UK exclusive retail release)

You and I share the same first entries but the other games haven't interested me enough to get them.

Ah yes, that is rather annoying. I don't want to wait to download and play, I want to play and download on the side to keep my mind off of the download!

This.

Why does Nintendo think background downloading means close your 3DS and place it behind you so your games download in the background?

Which ones?. MK7-Tetris Axis?. i guess MOST people would consider 3DGC: 55 n' 1 and 50CG3D "shovelware" but i really like these types of collections :). i love puzzles and 50 CG3D had air hockey, darts and a bunch or others i've been wanting to play. i figured for $4.99-$5.99 you couldn't go wrong. considering the price it was worth it to me :).

No, and I probably won't until an account system is in place.

I did download Super Mario 3D Land for free though.

Gotta agree with both of you. being able to play games live while downloading games in background should be standard. pretty ridiculous we can't do this (yet?).
