    I've recently bought and softmodded a second hand 2DS, and while I'm quite enjoying it, I'm finding its shape so little ergonomic that it has started giving me serious cramps, to the point where I currently have stopped playing it for a while for fear I might actually hurt myself.

    I've tried looking for a grip, but it seems they are all out of stock; the only one left sell for absurd prices on eBay.

    At this point, I either need to find a more comfortable way to hold it, or I'll have to sell it, and maybe buy a New 3DS (for which there's plenty of grips available).

    If I had to resort to that, how much should I sell my softmodded 2DS for? Including, that is, a 64gb SD.

    There is stuff like silicone covers and stuff you could put on it to make it feel more comfortable, when you say softmodded im guessing installed A9LH? Flog it on eBay or something, not sure on price though.

    Those are all out of stock everywhere, they sell for over 40€ used.

    lol, that's not the issue :D Unfortunately I've got tiny Trump-ish hands.

    Also, 3000 Kcal might be a tad too many proteins. Even if you just meant "cal", that would be roughly what a powerlifter that weighs 300 Kg should eat!

    First thing I tried. And those are the crappy ones.

    I've actually just found a PDP grip, which is supposed to be good, here, but once you factor shipping I'd end up costing me more than 30€, at which point I'd just sell the 2DS and buy a n3DS.

    Nope, I wrote exactly 3000 kcals, it's for winter bulking purpose, u don't always have to eat that much. Aerobic is best way to rip fats, when u are bulked enough, u'll even able to handle a 70kg barbell without cramps, no matter what was ur hand size :)

    Plus I'm here to eat 3000 kcals and lift 70kg then play 3DS

    Well I mean, I don't think a lot of people are willing to do that kinda thing. I don't think they'll bulk themselves up to play a few games :P

    Wait, aren't you supposed to roughly eat 2 grams of protein for every kilogram of your body weight? Or am I mistaken about the calories/gram?

    My Dualshock 3 survived Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2. At this point you could probably nuke it, and it wouldn't make a dent.

    don't worry, you'll get used to it, with my 3DS is worst than your 2DS, the buttons of my 3DS are horrible to press, and the tiny size of old 3ds is bad too

    Are you sure it is the 2ds? Not any other motions you have been doing a lot with your hand?

    Quite sure, I haven't used the 2DS in a couple of days and they are pretty much gone.

    Connect it to your brain so you don't have to use the middle man fingers~ :^) Or You could also hard mod a device that when turned on sends commands through voice recognition.

    I'm sure one could hardware back a PS3 controller up in that bitch. You'd have a wire, but a solid controller. The PlayStation layout way trumps the Xbox layout........in my honest opinion.
