Re: Thinking of adding a 3DS to my collection also

said by IowaCowboy:

Along with the Wii U (that I bought a few weeks ago), I am thinking of adding a Nintendo 3DS to my arsenal of gaming consoles. I would like opinions please.

I made the mistake a few years ago of buying the original Xbox when it was nearing end of sale (around 2005). I don't want to buy the 3DS if it is nearing end of sale. I would also like to know about the assortment of games out there as well for the 3DS.

I would also like to know if it is backwards compatible with the orginal DS games and if its Wi-Fi radio supports WPA 2. I have a DS lite but it is useless as the Wi-Fi only supports WEP.

I can answer a few of those questions, my daughter has one. Yes, it's compatible with the original DS games. We have an assortment of both. And yes, the Wi-Fi does support WPA2. That's the setting I have on my wireless router, and I have no problem with getting it to connect properly.

The selection of games...I won't lie. I'm not impressed. The games that we do have are fun, but whenever holidays have come around since we bought it I'll look at the list of stuff that's been released and find I'm not (or she wouldn't be) interested in most of it. If there are certain games on the market already that you're definitely interested in being able to play, invest in it.

Actually, I'm on speaking for the 3DS, I guess, not the newer 3DS with the larger screen. I'm not sure which of them you'd be investing in, or what if any differences there are between those two models. I'm fairly content with the screen size of the original.

I am probably likely to buy the 3DS XL. The reason I decided to buy a 3DS is I was in a GameStop playing a demo of New Super Mario Bros 2. I always have been a fan of the Mario games since I was a young child and a social worker took me to his house to play Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt on his NES in 1990. I was 6 years old at the time. Now at 29 years old, I still like to play the Mario games (Super Mario bros, Mario Kart series, Mario Party series, etc).

I get paid tomorrow so I'll probably stop at Best Buy and pick one up.

I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner. They are much better than broadcast TV.

I have not and will not cut the cord.

I definitely think you'll enjoy it. Since you like Mario games, take the opportunity to check out the Mario and Sonic London Olympics game as well. That's pretty fun.
