The Nintendo Handheld Headache Machine

I will be standing in line a half-hour from now, waiting another hour and a half for the store to open.

No regrets.

Got mine at midnight. It seemed a lot less pathetic when I found one of my friends from school standing there with me. It comes with some little acid trip cards that make up an augmented reality game that was a lot of fun and might keep me busy until I find a 3DS game I want. Being able to play my DS games again is awesome (the hinge finally snapped on my old ds).

I woke up this morning and decided to go over to Target to actually check the machine out in person before I decided if I wanted it right now or not.  I played around with Pilotwings for a bit, asked if they had any Aqua Blue ones in stock (nope, just black), and eventually shrugged and left.

I beat the system, Nintendo.  I didn't get your goddamn system on la

oh fuck amazon.com prime free trial and blue ones in stock right now

i am so goddamn weak

First one in line!


Splurged and bought Pilotwings.
This is pretty amazing.

It's like I have a window to a tiny little world.

Also, man is it easy to earn play coins with the pedometer. I forgot to leave it turned on for the first half of the day, then spent nearly the entire remainder of the day sitting down. I still maxed out my coins.

It's just the D-Pad being parsed by the analog stick, but it is amazing how much better Mario 64 DS feels on the 3DS.

I KNOOOOOOOOW.

I picked up Golden Sun after getting the 3DS and have yet to try it on my lite. It's just been too much of a delight playing with the circle pad, even if it's not true analog when playing DS games.
Why wasn't this on the DS from the start?

I'm inclined to say $$$.

It probably has something to do with how iffy the PSP's analog stick is/was, and their hopes to use the touch screen as a faux stick.

I believe I mentioned before how much better Mega Man Legends plays with a stick on an emulator, even though it's still just 8-direction digital.

The main problem with the PSP's analog is where the dumbfucks placed it.

It might be that they decided an analog interrupt line would be too wide? I dunno. I should read about those a little.

Finally found a store display of this thing.  Hasn't anybody told GameStop that theft doesn't exist outside of the PC world?

Anyway, it looks pretty much like just another incremental upgrade to the DS with no killer apps.  My handheld purchases are pretty much 100% driven by Castlevania at this point, anyway.

I'll wait for either my DS Lite phone to break or for Konami to fuck me over by releasing War of the Demon Castle as an exclusive.

That and that they made it conex instead of concave.

I wish more console analog sticks had concave tops.

Herp a derp finally messed with this. It was only for like ten minutes in Best Buy but the thing I really noticed is that I was able to get the 3D effect pretty perfect on that flying game thing, there was good depth and it didn't really feel like it was straining my eyes at all. It's really more that it looks like there's depth under the screen than an effect launching out, which is the bad 3D.
