Hey, I'm buying a 3DS in a month (that means I can do trades and stuff!), and a game along with it. That's the problem; I don't know whether to get;
a. LoZ: Ocarina of Time 3D
b. Starfox 64 3D
c. Super Mario 3D Land (since it should have released by then.)

Any advice or other suggestions?
Tough call between LoZ and Super Mario imo. 'Cause I've heard Ocarina of Time is amazing, but I'm a Mario fangirl so I'd personally probably choose that.

Ocarina of Time is amazing. This is coming from a girl that can't play more than 20 hours of a game to save her life for most games. There are very few that inspire me to finish it, and for over a decade Ocarina of Time wasn't one of them. I tried and tried to beat it but would get so bored so early and then quit. But the extra 3D (which looks amazing I might add) pushed it over the edge for me and now I'm almost done with it. :3

Well it just depends what type of genre game you like because the 3 you have listed are all generally different. I'd go for Mario but that's just me.

Ok, it is a tough choice, but I'm not really a fanboy of either series, I just enjoy both of them.

Cool, I wasn't sure about the 3D effect, but if that alone it persuaded you to re-play and finish the game, that's a pretty good sign that it's good.

Well I like all 3 genres, which is why I chose them

Yeah the 3D in that game is absolutely flooring. I mean, there are some times when I have to turn it off (for example, when aiming the slingshot/bow because you have to rotate the entire 3DS or when fighting a boss), but in general I have it on 24/7. My favorite part in 3D are the parts RIGHT before the boss battles, where they introduce you to the boss with its name, I always gape at that. You go through a period of adjustment with the 3D - it's difficult at first to keep it at the right distance/angle to get good 3D, but within a few weeks it just becomes second nature, lol.

Awesome, I'm definitely thinking more Zelda now, since Starfox wouldn't really have enough hours of gameplay, plus it lacks online, when that was clearly needed. So basically; Zelda, or Mario?

So I've started Final Fantasy 9 and I'm LOVING it. The only problem is that I know it's gonna end Does anyone know any RPG's with a story as fun as this one? I mean, I was up til like 1am last night because I HAD to know what happened next (and the next thing after that ... and that ... and that ... I was playing for a long time.)

I've heard good things about Chrono Trigger, and FF 10 is pretty good too.

You might want to give Aveyond a try, it's nothing fancy just your standard turn based RPG, you know level up learn some new spells, do some side quests and find some equipment in dungeons. I'm sure you know the drill.

What about a MMORPG, similar to WoW in some aspects? Like with different races, classes etc.

Hey, I was wondering whether to get the 360 or the PS3, and then I heard a comment saying that 360 comes with a headset. Do the 4gb models come with headsets?

If it's loud enough to be heard by a close-proximity mic in another room, then he should be turning it down, even for himself. Time for your parents to step in. Don't say it's because of the Xbox, just that it's too loud in general. Maybe that it's going to do damage to his hearing. Then they should be inclined to agree.

Are most sibling relationships that hostile?
That's a valid point. Xbox mica are designed to pick up close proximity sounds, so if your brother is indeed playing music loud enough for the mic to pick it up, it is clearly too loud, be it for him,you,your parents or neighbors if you have them.[/SIZE]

I have a few dollars to spare ($35), but I have three choices and I can only pick one. What should I get?

1. Nyoko Power Pack for the 3DS
2. Tetris Axis for the 3DS
3. Super Mario Land 3D

All of them sound good and I want them all, but I just can't! ;_;

Super Mario 3D Land.

Is it only 3DS games you're interested in? No other console? There's a ton of good games out recently/soon on other platforms.

Well, I have a Wii that I hope to get Skyward Sword for dring Christmas and I have a 360 with a non-functioning disc drive, a missing Hard Drive and a missing power cord. Which I can't really use.

For the Wii, I'd definitely recommend Xenoblade Chronicles if you like RPGs at all - it's easily my favourite game this year. Trailer, and a longer environment montage (location spoilers). The environments and music alone make it worth playing, but the rest of the game is just as good. Bonus: awesome British voice acting!
The only problem is that it hasn't been released in America, so you'll have to import it from Europe. This is probably the cheapest site with international shipping, but it will still set you back about $50... Also, you'll need to install homebrew on your Wii to play it - fortunately, it's easy and risk-free; I can link you to a guide if you decide to buy it

Just an option if you don't mind saving a little more.

Ah. And use a backup launcher and force NTSC. I've heard a lot about Xenoblade Chronicles. I might try it.

I don't know what you're into but you should probably try The World Ends With You if you plan on getting Kingdom hearts 3D, then at least you'll get to know Neku before you play the game. I'd say you should also try a Harvest Moon game, they're always fun to pick up and just play every now and then.

There a way to power on a 'DS-eye' into starting the game up, like the DS Lite's auto option? Getting old rather quick, having to scroll or select the game...

Animal Crossing: Wild World
One of the few Zelda titles
Mario & Luigi game (kinda like the SNES rpg)
Mario Kart for the DS

There 'might' be a good LEGO title...

So this is a question about preordering, I'm planning to preorder the FF XIII-2 Collectors edition in store at Gamestop soon, but I was wondering, is there a limit to how many preorders they can get? I heard some of my friends talking about how there are a certain amount of limited or collecters edition of games, even if you're preordering them. Is it true?
