First post of 2014, hooray... or something.
So as part of the recent holidays, I got some money which I used to purchase a Nintendo 3DS XL and a few games. It's a special edition gold and black Zelda themed system that comes with the game The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. On top of the included game, I also got Pokemon X, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Dead or Alive Dimensions, Liberation Maiden, Shantae: Risky's Revenge and Art of Balance Touch. So far, I really really like the 3DS. I guess I'm kind of late to the party on this, as Nintendo has sold a ton of these things, but I'm very impressed.
I only got one recently due to a belief I had that Nintendo would release a revised system with a second thumb stick. They never did, so I decided to grab one when I saw the chance. I honestly wish I had as soon as the 3DS as soon as the XL models came out. The system seems well designed and the game library is absolutely incredible. There's plenty of games I'd still like to get, when I have the time to enjoy them and the money to purchase them.
If you've been on the fence, let me recommend that you go ahead and grab a 3DS for yourself. If you get one, or already have one, feel free to add me. My friend code is: 1950 - 9016 - 7165. If you add mine, make sure to leave a comment with yours so I can add you as well. Here's some relevant links (minus digital only products) if you're interested in anything I mentioned.
