    Ffs, I just ordered more stuff.

    I spent more at BestBuy than I did on the Steam Summer Sale. The hell is wrong with me.

    Edit:

    So, for the record, I got:

    2x PowerPak+
    Pilot Wings Resort
    Steeldiver
    Rocketfish wired headset
    ZigZag GTWR Storage Tower for Xbox 360 (the thing was 5 bucks...)

    So $45. I spent $5 on Steam - for Penumbra - Black Plague.

    I've never bought it but from what I've played I totally agree with you.

    If this and Steel Diver were made today they would have been downloadable titles.

    It's a good deal and a decent game BUT they really shouldn't have used this game as a showcase for the 3d in playable kiosks. The 3D effect is not very well implemented and probably turned off a ton of people to the capabilities of the 3DS.

    Look at the Flag...
    Pilotwings should have been included with the 3DS for free, just like the original gameboy came with tetris, it would have had a higher success...

    The game is great, and definitively recommended for 5$, it's just quite short, but take some extra time to 100% it.

    I actually think it was one of the most impressive 3D game on 3DS, the feeling of depth is amazing, but you certainly meant people were expecting "pop out" effects.

    No, the depth is poorly executed, everything goes crosseyed (for lack of better term) if you turn up the 3D in the slightest. Compare this to Ridge Racer, Sakura Samurai, etc.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    3DS is 149.99 at Target as well. Back to school sales are pretty good for tech products :)

    BestBuy gave me the Rocketfish wireless headset for some reason when I bought the wired one online. Not complaining.

    Steeldiver was used, Pilotwings was new. Both had the Club Nintendo points.

    Don't buy Rocketfish screen protectors. I bought a pack and had to replace it because it lifted at all 4 corners. The replacement did the same thing. The cheap screen protectors on ebay are better IMO

    I put well over 30 hours into doing everything in this game, I enjoyed it a lot.
    For $5 I really would recommend it, might not be to everyone's taste but you can't go much wrong at that price.

    Right behind you
    I'll chime in with the pilot wings is a good deal for 5$ crowd, I don't regret getting it for 15. I do regret steel diver for 5, but oh well. For myself, Im debating on the battery, even though I'm usually playing the 3DS at home anyways....
