    I have a 3DS update to v4.3.0-10U. The only 2 games I have are KH:3D and Harvest Moon:AToTT and an Acekard 2i which, sadly, still has no updates. I'm considering either buying a new game or getting a Supercard DSTwo. Since I'm completely indecisive and really terrible at following what I want, I'd like to ask suggestions as to what game to buy or should I just buy a DSTwo. Here's some key points about my situation:

    1. I considered getting LoZ: OoT, but people say I probably already played it in N64. But the thing is, the only LoZ game I ever played was The Minish Cap on an emulator.
    2. I was also thinking of Kid Icarus, but I have no WiFi and will probably get very little use from it.
    3. I'm a sucker for rhythm games, so Rhythm Thief and Theatrhythm are also on the list, but I'm a HUGE RPG fan too. If I learned about a new JRG, I'd ditch any game to get my hands on it.
    4. I can't play DS on emulators since I'm usually at work and away from my PC at home. I can get a DSTwo but I don't know what to do with my Acekard2i.

    I'm still open for suggestions not on this list. Thanks in advance for the replies! ^_^

    If you play DS games often, go for the Supercard DSTWO. If not, get Theatrhythm. It's a rhythm game RPG hybrid, so I think you would feel right at home. It's an excellent game IMO.

    Kid Icarus, even if you dont have online the Solo mode is packed with content and the bots in VS are surprisingly challenging. OoT is also great if you haven't played it before, plus its a great Zelda game to kick off with, and grab a DSTwo if you can, its the best flashcard on the market right now.

    I'm guessing you are either rich or indecisive just like me... xD

    @[member='emigre']: I play JRPGs for the story. Is the game's story different from the anime? 'Cause I already finished the anime series for ToA... :/

    You don't play Tales for its shitty angsty generic rote story. You play it for its excellent and fun battle system.

    Kid Icarus is the best game to come out on any platform this year. Buy it. Right now.

    For Tales of the Abyss, you most definitely want to play PS2 Undub version. Don't buy it on 3DS, lack of Japanese voice on skits is a big con for the game.

    Game of ToA is mostlyt the same with the anime. The story is good!

    Get "Tales of the Abyss" you won't regret it, otherwise Theatrhythm is a great choice.

    Kid Icarus or OoT, but since you don't have Wi-Fi, I'd say OoT. It's absolutely fantastic and way better than the Minish Cap in my opinion. Kid Icarus is still great offline but I personally believe the fantastic online is the selling point.

    Kid Icarus actually has a great solo campaign and is jam packed, even without online. I beat the solo campaign like 2 weeks after I got it in March, and I'm STILL playing mostly solo. It's got tons of weapons and challenges, and the achievement system has SO much that you can do.

    And OoT 3D is DEFINITELY worth it, especially if you've never played it before. Easily one of the prettiest Zelda games I've played, and has the best 3D effect on the 3DS (along with Star Fox 64 3D).

    The SuperCard DSTwo is great if you want to play GBA and SNES games (which work halfway ok, sort of). But if not, I suggest getting an R4iGold, since you dont have to worry about the battery drain the SuperCard DSTwo causes (thanks to the onboard RAM always running as long as the cart is in the slot, even if you're not using it).

    Thanks for all the replies guys! Now let me see if I can reply to every single one:

    @[member='emigre']: Although the battle system is very tempting, I'm pretty sure I won't enjoy it if I already know the story. I'm a writer and how a game is delivered with the story is an extremely crucial aspect for me. So yeah, ToA is now officially off the list. Thanks for the suggestion and creepy avatar though. ;)

    @[member='Gnargle']: *gasp* Yes master! :V
    Kidding aside, Kid Icarus really looked very interesting. I watched the trailer and the level of action in it seems right up my alley. +1 vote to Kid Icarus.

    @[member='trumpet-205']: I have a PS2 but I rarely play it now. I'd play it on my PS2 but I can't find the game anywhere here in my area. From what I watched from the anime, I thought the story is pretty decent, around 6/10. Thanks for the reply anyway... ^_^

    @[member='Ericthegreat']: So I've heard. I'm really tempted to get it right now but I'm afraid that it, being only a re-release, might make it not worth my time. Then again, it's Legend-of-freaking-Zelda for christ's sake. It's one of the most popular games EVER. +1 vote to Legend of Zelda

    @[member='Zantigo']: Cool, I actually consider myself as a semi-homeless person right now since I sleep right here in the company building during the weekdays LOL... xD
    The problem with your reply was you threw my question right back to me as a response, so I was riddled once again by my own question. :P

    @[member='xerxes16439']: Sorry, off the list. I'm terribly picky when it comes to storyline. Thatrhythm is a big rival to Rhythm Thief for me, but since I'm a pretty good rhythm game player, how hard do you think is it? I play 5-star songs on osu!, Extreme difficulty in all instruments (except vocals, LOL) in any Guitar Hero game, and level 25+ songs on O2jam. Not bragging, I'm pretty sure a lot of people are WAY better than me. I was just asking if the difficulty level of Theathrhythm can keep up with me. Anyway, +1 vote to Theatrhythm.

    @[member='Lucifer666']: I've read a lot of great reviews for OoT, and it really seemed awesome. I was just not sure if it was current-generation-player-awesome or nostalgia-induced-psychedelia-awesome. +1 vote to Legend of Zelda

    @[member='xwatchmanx']:
    1. Kid Icarus looks epic with its action-packed videos and screens, but I've heard the replay value is almost zero if you don't have WiFi on solo campaign. Unless it has hundreds of secrets, which is perfect for me 'coz I'm a completionist with an OCD for perfection (well, not really, but I LOVE perfectly finishing games).
    2. I've never played most of the classics, even though I'm in the older age group of gamers (I'm ashamed). A lot of people seem to favor OoT so it seems the poll is leaning towards it right now.
    3.I'd get a DSTwo right now without asking this question if I knew exactly what to do with my Acekard2i. So the thing with the DSTwo part of this thread is I want people to convince me to get it without selling my Acekard2i, or tell me what the hell I should do with this goddamned card. I'm not blaming the Acekard team, but I can't be blamed too for updating the system since my little bro was the one who updated it. >.>

    +1 vote to Kid Icarus, Legend of Zelda and DSTwo.

    More replies and votes would be greatly appreciated! 1st post updated! :D

    Spend 9 dollars and get Rhythm Heaven for the original DS.

    A fellow Osu! Player?! That's awesome! I love rhythm games and let me tell you that Theatrythm is AMAZING! At first you have to beat the easy difficulties which would be a bore if it wasn't Final Fantasy, theres just something that makes it relaxing and nice after you beat both easy and expert modes on songs you unlock Ultimate mode and it's very challenging, seriously. Ultimate by itself is fun and then when you aim to get a SSS rank on a song the real challenge starts. if you aim to triple S or even double S every song you'll be entertain for quite a while and it will be HARD. Not to mention there's new DLC coming every so often. Anyway, if the rhythm part isn't enough for you, theres also a RPG-ish side to the game, the story is a nice touch, though its not immersive or whatever but there is leveling up, bosses, abilities, items and summons, so you'll love that. I wholeheartly support this game over any other game IF your a final fantasy fan, in terms of gameplay it definately is harder then rhythm thief and Theatrythm will last you longer so go with it if you want a rhythm game. If youre not to big on FF you can still enjoy the music and game, its great after all, you just wont appreciate it as much.

    I forgot to mention that Ocarina of Time 3D was the first time I played OoT ever, and it still gave me goosebumps. It's that awesome. I knew nothing about OoT in particular and just went ahead and bought it due to the craze. It made its way into one of my all-time favorite games. In fact I got so angry after beating it that I'm still trying to complete all the extras. Might even replay the game in the near future.

    Also @retrodoctor 's advice isn't bad at all. Rhythm Heaven's been voted the best rhythm game out there several times.

    Did you do Master Quest?

    Also, play Majora's Mask in some form (N64, GCN, VC, emulator), if you can. It's very unique from Ocarina of time (aside from the graphic style), and while a bit shorter, it's much harder and overall longer with the sidequests. It's my favorite game of all time.

    Well, since you have never played OoT, I would get it. In my opinion Oarina of Time was the best Zelda and with Master Quest you can easily play it for more than 100 hours. (At least that's what my 3DS shows for me)

    Zelda OOT is an outstanding game, even though old , still gives newcomers a full experience meaty welcome.

    I've clocked around 108 hours and its the first OOT i've played. Lengendary game. Updated graphics are very nice and the game runs more smoother at 30fps. Big plus over the orginal.
