    are you looking for eur or us games? guessing if your from albania you need eu codes and that means no cheap deals im afraid :/
    the trade section on the forum is only open if you have 100 posts. and eu games sell fast on there since most games being sold there are us games. even if you find games a bit cheaper on a website here in europe shipping will come up to even more than the games costs locally or from the eshop :(

    On the ⌨
    well its nice to see a "patriot" here ,yeah you need at last 100 posts to get to the trading forum but even there you will not find some great (or awesome deals ) as shipping costs allot
    you can always give it a try on ebay also if im not wrong at "kristal center " there is a shop (euronics? ) that sells some nice games ,nds one mostly for about 13$ , not shore about 3ds ones though :/
    so give it a try also on "sheshi wilson" there is a small shop that sells games i dont know about 3ds ones but you can always give it a try
    and if you find some cheap one send me a message im planing to buy a 3ds or a 2ds and i would love to have some great games like profesor layton :)

    if thats the case then then your lucky :) ebay is your friends then but again shipping costs loads to our countries here so what i would do is buy games off the eshop cause you have the US one which is cheaper than eu one :)

    for some item yes for others not so much , like for example , 3d land is 30 $ on eshop and 35-40 on playasia so advantage eshop on the other hand ocarina of time is 40$ on e shop and 42$ on playasia , but if you put in the value of hard copy that another thing.

    I have mario kart 7 and doa for 3ds and i wana buy a new game but im torn on wich to buy.
    i am stuck between fire emblem - ocarina - 3d land - ALBW ????

    what to buy what to buy ???

    i know but i was talking about eu games and they are 40 euros which is more than 40 dollars and if i get it for lets say 30 euros of some website shipping will come up or over 40 euros :/
    fire emblem is amazing and my suggestion its a must have 3ds game if you like turned based strategy games, ocarina is good too a hard and pretty long game, 3d land is a bit meh nothing special, albw is too short i heard plus no replayability so i would say go for fire emblem i was also a bit should i buy it but i did and i didnt regret it at all

    yea thats my opinion and i think most people will agree.
    why fire emblem? well the game has massive replayability, difficutly levels make the game much harder and you will want to make it harder after you finish it for the first time.
    the story is great and makes you play through the game. the interface is fast and snappy so no long waits in battles and menu and stuff. the graphics and animation is good and there is voice acting too.
    why not zelda?
    well the game is really good but its a remake and if you badly want to play it just get a n64 emulator on your pc psp or something and play the original. the 3ds one isnt much different. if you love zelda yes you should get the game but later. my suggestion now is to play the must have games for 3ds. :)

    Well actually honestly if you haven't played Ocarina of Time, I'd recommend it over Fire Emblem any day.

    well isnt it better to get fire emblem and play ocarina on a emulator for now and get it later?
    for me fire emblem is far superior in my opinion cause when you finish ocarina your never gonna touch it again and for that it just might be better to play it on a emulator

    Sure if you want to play the game with N64 graphics running at 17fps and shitty HLE emulation with glitches all over the place

    OoT3D is amazing. The overhaul they did on it is incredible, it runs at 30fps and they have redone everything, with smoother animations and great looking new models. It's what Ocarina of Time was always meant to be. Fire Emblem is nice sure, but I think Ocarina is the superior game, it's one of those things you only get to experience for the first time once in your lifetime and you wish you could erase your memory to play it again.

    But yeah if you want to grab Fire Emblem first that's fine, but DON'T PLAY OCARINA ON AN EMULATOR, buy it later on the 3DS, you'll be ruining the experience.

    I agree with you what they did with ocarina is great. The feeling i have just in general not you is that people are nostalgic and they remember how great ocarina was for them on the n64 and they want to experience that again in a better package but paying full price of 40 euros or I don't know how much it is in the US for a remake is a bit :/ I know they did alot but still. On the other hand i also heard there are great new textures that people made for the n64 version emulator so it looks amazing i don't know i need to look into it.
    For me if you want to play zelda on the 3ds my opinion is get a dstwo and play a link to the past for gba or snes both version work great. I'm just saying to me that was so much better. But im going off topic now :)

    Get fire emblem or zelda both are great games and in the long run get both if you can :) It all comes down to what kind of games you like more since both have are very different play styles.

    Some textures won't help, the framerate is absolutely abysmal, it runs like 15 - 17 fps, not to mention N64 emulations is horrible. I'm not saying to grab it at full price, but getting an used copy or something would be nice. Still it's justified when the remake is so good and the game is stellar, specially when he hasn't played it yet.

    I played the demo of fir emblem and i have played ocarina long time ago on n64 , my decision is that ill buy em both hey are both amazing , even though ocarina has always had a special place in my heart :) , but from the demo fire emblem looks amazing and its very adictive
