    Let's reverse back to May-July 2011 for a moment:

    "3DS is a big failure."
    "Nintendo didn't learn from its past experiences."
    "No good games out for Nintendo 3DS."
    "Imma gonna sell my 3DS, this shit has no games, heck yeah,

    I've owned a 3DS twice now and I still agree with these statements.
    Though I'm enjoying Mario Kart 7 but it's not as good as Mario Kart Wii. MKWii was crazy, Mario Kart 7 seems more casualized.

    MkWii was GREAT, the best if I may call it like that. No no no Mario Kart 64 was the best. But, Mk7 is indeed very casual... Do you have Resident Evil Revelations?(Or will you get it eventually?)

    Mind explaining your reasoning behind that?
    I think there a fair amount games out. They didn't all have to be AAA titles.
    That said, Japan has way more titles that need to come over here. :lol:

    I would have to agree with this. MK7 is a game I can play when I want, where ever I want (online if applicable). MKWii is what I play when I'm at home when no one is using the TV, and when I have my brother over.

    Of course I would love to put reason behind it!

    Well, Mario Kart 7 is a great game. But based on overall experience like controls, courses, characters and online experience I can see so much difference to Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 64. Mario Kart 64 was a MESS, Mario Kart Wii also a bit but the mess is missing in Mario Kart 7. Courses are a lot (Forgotten the word but I will explain. First it was like | | now it is | | see it is thicker, you have more space for racing which cleans up the mess.) Friends I know who play casual never like Mario Kart 64 because of the mess, while they enjoy Mario Kart 7...

    Another example is the unneeded Motion Control stuff. It is fun to mess with but I don't think anyone would really miss it.(Please don't flame me on this, I like to mess with the controls sometimes but still in the train with the 3DS XD)

    That pretty much defines a handheld version and a console version.

    I played MKWii at my friend's place. It was indeed crazy and heck those controls...

    Would I be right in thinking that Just Dance is the only new IP in that list?

    By that logic it's as successful as the 360.

    ... I've been playing mostly online.
    Heck, when I got the game I went straight online, I didn't start doing single player until a couple of days after.

    Edit: And what the hell are you doing with your quotes?

    I'm liking this post just because it seemed to be in the right place at the worse possible time.
