Still digging my Zelda XL more honestly
But I would respect anyone I came across playing that
I'm excite. It's so tacky but I love it.
Should have been like this, or maybe all silver with black logo.
I never understand the 3DS art, it's always upside down.
>Hey check out my 3DS!
>Wow that looks cool!
>Person walks by, sees a bunch of Smash Characters but they're upside down
>Did you put that art on yourself anon? It's upsidedown.
The logo itself should have been on the back or something the front could've just had some character silhouettes (like the main 4) or the smash symbol. This is just cluttered.
I really like the monster hunter one, though I would rather if it didn't have the text.
W-what the fuck do you mean?
What do you play hunched over like a freak or something?
I just lean back in my chair and play.
See, look at this picture, this is how a normal person plays 3DS.
The art would clearly be visible, maybe a bit slanted, but still.
Usually I'm playing on a couch, or in a chair, and it's still visible to a person across the room who is standing.
I guess maybe I just lean back more than the average person? I like to be comfy with my games.
Couldn't they have made a new illustration instead of tracing the 3DS cover art? It's a permanent stamp on your expensive device and it doesn't feel unique or special at all. Hell, you can so it yourself in photoshop and print it out on some sticker paper.
>Want to buy a 3DS but never enough interested
>This bundle could solve this
>Game is digital
Digital games on consoles are pure bullshit
It would be if buying the game would mean getting the game in physical and digital.
In the next years when 3DS dies and your 3DS eventually dies, you won't be able to play the game digital only.
I need to replace my broken 3DS XL (still working, hinge is just busted). Now, unless I'm mistaken, if I were to replace it with this and transfer over my current XL's data I'd be fucked over as far as the game goes due to it being digital right?
Is that one real? I can't find any info on it
But March 2010 already passed.
jk hurr durr. Do want though.
>demos have limited uses
Meh but if it bothers you ok.
>no dedicated online network
I sure was not playing mario kart online. Nope no online there.
>no user IDs
You don't own a 3ds
>game sizes are measured in blocks
Just a different name for the same thing. Does not really effect anything
>complaining about digital games on a handheld
Stop your retarded whining. It's more convenient for games like Smash, Pokemon, Animal Crossing and others.
Stop being a sheep, and stop ranting about things that are cool to hate on /v/.
>in order to test other weapon types
holy shit this is brilliant. my friend just started in and he hasn't gotten used to most other weapons yet, i need to get him to download it
also does anyone know if you delete the demo and download it again if that works?
Because people want the game, and a 3DS XL to play it on. This solves that problem by having both under 1 pricing. I just don't know if it'll cost more than a solo bundle + game.
Just checked the Japanese Nintendo twitter account to see if they also got the bundle. Seems to be EU only for now.
Why the fuck wouldn't they sell this shit in Japan that's marked as handheld country?
Looks really trashy.
Five seconds in Photoshop.
Anyone who feels this urge to have a repackaged toy needs to get their priorities straight. Then again, you're American. Most of your brain consist of saturated fats, sugars, and sitcoms.
No it's true, they approach me and tell me that their favourite Pokemon is Pikachu or how cute it is and we get into conversation.
Looking good and not being socially retarded can help too
>Design will be upside-down when the 3DS is open
> Caring about the design
I hope you don't play your 3DS in public
Fucking calm down, OP. Seriously. You sound like Neogaf.
Go outside for the day, socialise. That way you won't be so over obsesed with a 3DS with a bunch of Nintendo characters on the front, because that's all it is. Chill out for christsakes you shut in.
>not having the best XL
>design works even when it's opened
What's your excuse /v/?
I actually am I going to buy this cus I made the mistake of buying a European 3DS when I was traveling
>hold out on buying a new 3DS XL because the limited Smash 3DS might be worth it
Welp, guess not
What kind of underwear do you BUY, Anon?
If I buy this limited XL and pass all the content from my old regular 3DS will it not erase Smash from it?
I have a huge SD card, I'm ready for lots of digital games but I don't want to erase the fucking game while transfering data
The Japanese PS4s for Frozen and TLOU are both butt ugly. Just cheap and tacky paste on gold.
>already own 3DS
>more interested in a Wii U bundle
>look up other limited edition Wii Us for an idea of what it will look like
Those lazy fuckers. I'm not expecting a Pikachu 64, but come on.
The characters should be on the back and the smash logo on the front, like the Persona Q one.
>shit red color
>link (woman games of today), mario (shitty character) and pikachu (not the old fat one) in the front
>other M samus and the creepy guy that makes her less visible
>faggot angel cupid rip off
this is totaly bad and wrong
it could be awesome, and they give us this shit
I was probably gonna upgrade to a 3DS XL this year, I was waiting on any new limited editions this year. I'm actually not really a fan of this design. I guess I'll wait and see how the Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire ones look.
Oh I get it. Since it won't come with the game case this is their way of showing it to you.
Underrated post of the fucking year.
Its only going to come in the XL variety isn't it?
I have needed a new 3DS for months but everywhere I look they only have fucking XL's and they don't fit in any of my pockets which is why I have not gotten a new one.
Well good thing barely any games use the left bumper or have the right one do the same stuff as the left.
It has a minimal look that looks clean and cute. It also has the white interior which already makes it better than most SE systems.
>tfw it will never leave Japan
I can have my 3DS look like a pop tart when I want, but while playing it looks pristine.
Why would anyone play Smash on the 3DS?
You can't see shit on that screen for starters, then good luck finding 4 people with the game and 3DSs to play multiplayer (unless you're a literal child).
>Playing a game that's only fun on the couch with friends on a sterile online environment
It's like you don't want to have any fun.
Maybe I'm too used to my glorious Super AMOLED phone, but the 3DS screen is blurry, pixelated, scanlined, and washed out as fuck. I can't see shit clearly on it unless I'm playing in complete darkness with the brightness maxed out. Not sure about the XL but I have the regular launch type 3DS.
>Maybe I'm too used to my glorious Super AMOLED phone, but the 3DS screen is blurry, pixelated, scanlined, and washed out as fuck. I can't see shit clearly on it unless I'm playing in complete darkness with the brightness maxed out.
That honestly sounds like your eyes are fucked bro. You may need reading glasses.
>only fun on the couch with friends
Well there hasn't been a portable Smash before you fuckwit, so how would you know? And the only thing stopping anyone from still playing it with a group of friends on 'the couch', would be a lack of friends.
My eyesight is fine, I'm just too used to sharp, bright and detailed screens. Would you go back to black and white 13 inches SDTV after having spent years playing on 30 inches HDTV?
looks tacky as fuck.
shouldve just done the smash logo centered to the bottom left.
For me playing Smash is all about interacting with your friends as you play. Playing with random internet strangers who will probably be as cheap and annoying as possible all the fucking time without you being able to interact with them in any way wouldn't be much more enjoyable than fighting lv9 cpus.
Brawl had online already and it was fucking awful.
I don't even own a 3ds I am just wondering why the fuck it matters what it looks like to other people. I wouldn't give a shit about them. I look at it when it's closed, and then when it is open and I can't see the decal anymore, it doesn't matter to me.
Also let me add
>playing unbalanced fighting games online with strangers
Looks like nobody here has tried shit like Soul Calibur 4 or DoA4 online, or any WWE game.
Literally no fun to be had, enjoy playing against the same 3 characters all the fucking time and getting cheapshotted like crazy. This one also has Mii customization, so add unfunny custom miis to the no-fun mix.
>Would you go back to black and white 13 inches SDTV after having spent years playing on 30 inches HDTV?
Not an accurate comparison because black and white sets still display just fine, not to mention they're CRT. You sound like you're just nitpicking in order to try upset someone.
I don't care if you get upset, that's what I think and the reason I don't play my 3DS anymore nowdays. The screen is just too fucking bad, it strains my eyes too much because I try too hard to see details that just can't be seen unless you're in pitch black darkness while you play, and then I keep focusing on the scanlines.
The only problem with my eyes is that I have slightly lower eyesight on my left eye and this prevents me to see the 3D correctly (or at least I think so, I always see some double edges no matter how I line up to the non-existant viewing angles).
Sorry for bad english.
>playing smash bros on a handheld
I still don't understand this.
>tfw your dog finds your 3DS when you're trying so hard to keep it pristine
3DS has shit build quality. Mine has big ass marks on the top display just because Nintendo is bad at designing things.
This is a common problem with the regular 3DS (as in, every single 3DS has it unless you know about it beforehand and always close it with a cloth between the two screens from day one).
As if the screen quality wasn't horrendous enough to begin with. And Nintendo won't replace it under warranty either.
Because it's a local multiplayer console game, how are you going to input precisely with a jerky circlepad and a tiny screen? I'm not even shitposting, this makes about as much sense to me as playing fruit ninja with a mouse and keyboard, the hardware is just completely incompatible with the actions you'll need to perform.
He was a stray we found as a puppy. Not exactly sure what he is.
There are people that play 3DS in public like that?
I always have it horizontally, so it looks flat to others. That way makes it harder for them to recognize my power level.
>not storing it in a cheap ass protective case
Come on nigga
>People continue to say that the standard 3DS is superior
I still haven't bought a case so yeah I'm pretty pissed that I could have prevented it.
>5 buttons and a directional input that are harder to hit than a gamepad either side of a tiny screen
>inarticulate circlepad instead of a stick
>your screen will unavoidably move slightly with each button press, instead of being a stationary, larger TV in front of your face
All this with likely patchy online play and poorer visuals due to hardware limitations.
Sure, you'll be fine, but it doesn't change the fact that you're playing a game that was and is still designed around consoles on a handheld.
Their right though. You wouldn't hold the 3DS parallel to you. It would be at a slight angle like it is in that picture. If you sat down the art would only be visible to small children, or if your tall, teenagers.
>you're playing a game that was until recently designed around consoles
I have about 20 years of experience with handhelds telling me that "button presses moving the screen" and "Hard to hit buttons" are not legitimate issues.
My 3DS just makes a popping noise, then proceeds to shut itself down. I dunno how to fix it and I can't afford to get Nintendo to fix it, so I'd take a bitten 3DS over one that doesn't work.
Appropriate thread, Im likely gonna get a 3DS this weekend.
How is the 3DS compared to the XL? People say because the screen is just larger the games looks a little stretched and blurry. Is that true?
Also can i still get that Fire Emblem XL?
I'm sure you do, and to prove I'm not just trying to bait I'll concede that I'm sure they've made developments that will limit the impact these issues have, but expecting the first run at porting a generations old console game onto a handheld to go entirely smoothly is nothing short of delusional.
If the controls work well then good, I'd be happier for it, but there's no way the 3DS is going to handle matchmaking on a scale as large as the smash community.
It kinda sounds like that, yeah.
The problem is I can get to the back just fine, take out the battery, but the 8 small black screws in the back just won't come out. They're tight as hell.
Kudos for actually citing a source but
>We arrived at a point where the series could not evolve, and we wondered if the handheld console was the solution.
Don't imagine for a second that this is some genius masterstroke by Nintendo, this is Sakurai throwing bullshit at the wall to see what sticks so there's no assurance it will actually work well. How many times have Nintendo said "We want X to evolve in a new direction" before?
are you from Europe?
It's the same resolution just a little bit bloated. Think when you zoom in on an image.
Fire Emblem XL is a European 3DS. The american version is only a regular version.
My first 3DS used to do that too.
If i had it turned on before opening it all the way. It would make a loud *POP* and turn off. That was really weird as shit.
Eventually it stopped turning on at all and i had to replace it.
I've tried looking for a fix since about 2012, but I only find the same 2-3 forum posts that are just too vague to be any helpful. All the other forums posts are some kid saying "oh no my 3ds is broke guys :(" and then it ends with "oh it works now thanks!!", so it's really not even worth reading in the end.
they can with the NNID now. Only problem is you have to contact through Nintendo's customer support and hope they don't shit on you because it always depends on the guy on the line.
>nvm i fixed it
>i pm'd you the solution
all your downloaded games goes to your SD card. Only stuff like DSi games or software stick in your 3DS internal memory.
Your downloaded games act like an encryption so it will only boot up on your specific 3DS.
>people private messaging the solution to a problem tons of people have and not just posting it on the thread
This is the post I finished with last time I made a help thread and solved it on my own
This is what people should do
Pls don't dox me I haven't been on gbatemp for years
It's cool if people like it but i'd prefer if it was just the smash ball with some flames or characters silhouettes in fighting poses kinda like the lujigi 3ds
But the standard 3DS sucks ass
It doesn't matter anyway, because Zelda designs de-qualify you in everyone's eyes. There is no situation where you get props for being a Zelda fan, because every wanna be nerd has a Zelda Cap/Shirt and all the real Zelda fans are notorious neets
>let your dog chew your glory Zelda XL
I'd teach him to not chew anything again, and if he doesn't learn I'd have his teeth pulled
dumb dogs are worth nothing, smart dogs, that's the real deal, because when someone is attacking you on the streets, they won't look at you with their silly ass eyes but bite that motherfucker to death
Step aside faggots
Get Papo. The quality is far better and it's more accurate to Jurassic Park dinos.
The logo is the only part that bothers me on this design...
Why would they put a logo on it? :C
The drawing is cute but dear lord that logo just took a massive shit on everything.
Does this mean we can expect another Nintendo Direct announcing the inevitable American special edition 3DS? (Be it the same as this or something new.)
God fucking damn it Sakurai I need another newcomer already you cunt my body can't take it much longer.
I'm not too concerned right now as there's probably a chance Nintendo of America may pull the same shit they did to this and make their own version, though in this case I hope it's something good instead of what they did for the XY XLs.
>nowhere in the picture does it even say anything about Sony, nor does the manchildren say anything in favor of Sony, he could've been a Nintendo fan just as well
>meanwhile, on things that actually happened....
About what? About assblasting you? About making too much sense for you?
>People actually care about smash bros
Play a grown up fighting game, you faggots. 3DS should be for RPGs.
Tssch, mayn, that's just the image that came up first in my folder.
>buy a black 3DS a year ago because I just had to play X/Y
>haven't done anything with it since
>every says the 3DS is awful...
and I was just thinking about buying some new games for it... but now I'm worried for no apparent reason.
tell me the 3DS is fine so I can go have fun /v/
>My greasy fingers leave marks on the screen when i close my 3DS.
Clean your fucking hands and you wouldnt have this issue you fat slob. Those marks are left by the grease on the edges of the bottom screen.
>not getting a pal xl and a gateway or waiting for alternative flashcarts if you are so anal
step it up senpai
>Other pokemon games
At least It's better than the vita...
When the fuck are we going to be able to preorder this shit
>People would actually prefer having the boring Smash logo over this
Fuck you and your shit taste. I'm buying that at launch
>Smealum: I'm releasing my exploit soon tm
This was more than a month ago, and this same shtick has been going on for over 2 years.
Faggum aint got shit, and thats why he will never release anything
I'm upgrading to XL when mh4u launches.
Tbh, I'm not too fussed about smash bros.
I'm probably gonna see if they do a decent looking box set.
I don't think there's gonna be a Wii U bundle, because preorders are already up just for the game with the GC adapters.
Besides I was going to get an XL for Smash for the bigger screen anyways, so the exclusive Smash design is just gravy
I was on about a western 3dsXL for MH....
Tbh, the normal 3ds is too small, but I would rather wait for mh4u than get some crappy looking one.
Nintendo is focusing on the Wii U and as a result the 3DS was heavily affected. Wait for next year.
Not that I'm concerned since I haven't played 3DS library yet and I can do it for the rest of the year until new games are announced.
Also SSB is coming for it, also Gunvolt, and ORAS
It's not THAT bad.
I'm kind of retarded when it comes to EXIF data, does it work for any image? Or is it just for cameras and phones and stuff and can tell you when someone took the photo and shit.
Is it only with certain stuff?
Smart dogs aren't exactly good either, you have to spend a shit ton of time teaching them and they actually have the intelligence to not listen to you when they want to, not to mention the smartest dog breed is clingy as fuck and will freak the fuck out if you try to walk away for even a short time.
She (Part of the problem, her being a female dog.) will listen to commands when there is something in it for her, but when I actually need her to follow them she just stares at me or jumps on me, I teach her not to do that and she does it anyway.
Fucking smart dogs are smart enough to know how to disobey.
I'm going to hold onto this until they make a XL in this color.
EH, if you don't color in art it might aswell be all grey scaled.
