    So, I made a deal with the wifey, and I get to buy a (NEW) 3DS at Gamestop and trade my games in on Amazon, since we need to do Christmas shopping anyway on Amazon, so $60 worth of free crap is always good. (Not exactly free, but I'm done with the games anyway)

    I'm snagging a Flame Red one, and I might be picking up Super Mario 3D land as well, but I'm not dead set on that.

    Pics later on tonight :D

    Nice! I'd definitely recommend SM3DL, as it's an amazing game, albeit a little on the easy side.

    I think there is a bundle that includes a red 3ds and mario land for like 10 cheaper, so you could always wait for that.

    I've had a 3DS since launch, and have bought/played many games.

    My personal recommendations are Super Mario 3D Land (It's awesome!), Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D (Not my type of game, but I love it. It's half-assed for a RE game, but it's still great. You could maybe find it cheap. Best Buy had it on sale for $20 a while ago), and of course Zelda.

    I'm jealous of the flame red... I have aqua blue and love it.. but the red looks amazing!

    Hope you love it as much as me/most people here. I'll be glad to swap friend codes with you if you want.

    That my good man is a understatement Super Mario 3D land is VERY easy (if you've ever beaten NSMB on wii or ds then its abit easier then that) but it makes up for it by having a second game (its really just 8 worlds worth of level edits and I think 2 or 3 new powerups) which proves to be much harder then the first. Its also just flat out fun to play (even if the cammera makes me rage some times :3). I would recommend it as a first game if your waiting for another game like MK7 or KI, RE is also cool and DoA or SSF are great fighters.

    Good on ya!

    (As a side note; SM3DL comes with my highest recommendation. It's a fabulous game and one that really shows what the 3DS is made of)

    I still don't have any games. I haven't found any selling for $10 or less.

    there are plenty of 10$ games on the e-shop... but if you are talking about 3ds cartridge for 10$ i hope you get what you pay for... if a game is worth it i would pay 60$ .. and will be when re revelations comes out...

    I don't mean the eShop. I need to find a decent game cartridge for cheap.

    Rumble blast I'd be willing to buy, but I couldn't find it at Gamestop.

    Good luck with that. In my experience, the only cartridge games you tend to find for $10 or less are used five-year-old stinkers without any packaging or manuals.

    I don't really feel the need for packaging, and isn't there a built in manual for the 3DS?

    Yes, but there are also no 5 year old 3ds games. Only crap DS ones half of the time.

    I'm actually jelly of you. But not because you have a 3DS and I don't, because I do. But because you got that feeling of "OMFG NEW CONSOLE!" I love the machine. First game I got was Legend of Zelda back in August at wal-mart before the official price drop, but it was a wal-mart sale. Now I need to get Mario. I love the Ambassador games, and Star Fox, but still.
