3DS: Definitely a future purchase

Not that I was on the fence about getting one to begin with but I wasn't gonna buy one right out of the gate. Number one there isn't enough games yet and number two there could be issues with the first batch of systems made. Better to wait in all regards. Plus, I want more colors to choose from xD I know I mentioned this with my Tales of the Abyss for 3DS post before. But anyways, I don't really care about the 3D feature. In fact, I'll probably keep it turned off most of the time. At least Nintendo gave you a choice with that. Much appreciated there~

So, pretty much with all the games I've seen announced for the system since E3 and all that definitely got me saying heck yeah, I want one. A new game called Super Mario that brings back an old favorite power up from Super Mario Bros. 3, yes the raccoon thing, new Mario Kart, Sonic Generations, and of course Tales of the Abyss I mentioned earlier. Not to mention a whole range of prospects for more awesome games. Oh and the handheld Virtual Console. It's like the Virtual Console for the Wii where you can buy SNES, N64, Genesis, and other old console games like that except it's one for like the old Gameboy games and other handheld system games that you can purchase and play on the 3DS. And one game I already want from there is Super Mario Land. Man, I loved those games on the Gameboy and they have announced the first one to be on the VC and I'm hoping that 2 and 3 follow.

Anyways, there are other games that interest me for the system as well like Cave Story but we shall see what the future holds for it. Despite video games slowly becoming a lesser part of my life and will eventually become nonexistent at some point I do have more of an attachment to portable stuff. Nintendo's stuff mostly. I don't know that I'll get Playstation's new Vita system. So anyways, this could be the last system I ever buy. I've seen the new stuff at E3 and I just keep thinking I'm not really interested anymore. And my money is just way better spent obviously in the future. But we'll see where all this goes in the end for me. So, till next time~
