    Sorry if i do anything wrong, i am a noob please understand me.


    So i got 45 bucks to spare and i though i would buy a 3DS game

    I have Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, TLOZ Ocarina of Time 3D and Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition.

    So what should i get next? Star Fox 64 3D (I never played the original Star Fox 64 but i've played other ones, not the biggest Star Fox fan and whasn't really interested in the game but i heard a lot of great things about the game, it doesn't have online though) Reatailing for around = 35-40 Bucks

    Dead or Alive Dimensions (I am kind of a fan of the Dead or Alive series, well the fighting ones actually the "volleyball ecchi games" are simply ecchi/erotic howhever you wanna call games, well back to the game i've seen it has great graphics , alot of modes and online and im a big fighting game fan and it's kinda cheaper but hasn't had that much hype like Star Fox 64) Retailing for around= 20-30 Bucks

    OR the oddest one in the list Supercard DSTwo (Mainly because i had to sell my DS Lite and almost all my games to buy the 3DS, this card is impressive it can play DS games patched or clean, GBA, GBC, GB, SNES, NES More homebrews an amazing Menu and options but that makes it the best and expensive Flashcart, i really don't mind paying that much for it since i payed the same for an R4 Clone DS when i was stupid , well more than now since im still stupid, but that's not what talking about anyway impressive i can play all my ds games on my 3ds, it has a an active website with uptaded firmwares to work on the newest 3DS uptade) Reatiling for around = 35-40 Bucks


    I seriously don't know what to buy, I have no DS games and the DS is probably my favorite handheld of all time and i would like to play all those games again or even play A new game like Star Fox 64 3D or Dead or Alive Dimensions since the 3DS has an amazing selection of games right now and can't wait for RE Revelation, Kid Icarus, MGS Snake Eater 3D, Kingdom Hearts and MUCH more.

    So what you think i should get?

    EDIT: I have no idea why the fonts changed so much

    I’d get a Supercard DStwo now, and buy the 3ds games later.
    The DS already has a huge game library, and the cost of those 3ds games is sure to drop within 3 months on amazon.

    Understand that if you get a DSTWO, you're going to have to update it to the latest firmware if you've already updated your 3DS to get it working. Updating the firmware requires either doing it through a DSi/3DS that hasn't been updated to the latest version, or through a DS (recommended).

    Out of your list I would pick the DS2. I would also recommend Ace Combat. It has decent graphics, and is a better game than Star Fox in my opinion (I prefer full 3D free flight vs rail flight).

    You have Street Fighter, so I wouldn't recommend Dead or Alive. I wouldn't recommend Starfox to anyone who had not played the original. My friend lent it to me, and I hated it. I played the original back in the day, but not much.

    I normally recommend Resident Evil: The Mercs 3D, but Revelations comes out in a month. I always thought I hated games like Resident Evil. I tried the 4th one and hated it (Flameshield), but I loved The Mercenaries 3D. Revelations looks 1000x better.

    If you still don't want that, I'd say wait for Kid Icarus, Heroes of Ruin, or something else.

    Right now you have the best available. I have a Supercard, but haven't played a DS game since the 3DS came out. If you think you're going to play a lot of DS games. I would go with that.

    Good. You can use his DS for the initial update, but after that, you can use your 3DS for later updating as long as you don't update your 3DS first. The forums here will make mention of 3DS system updates, what cards are affected, and will post about a fix the moment it becomes available, so just keep track of that, and you'll be good to go.

    If you do get the DSTWO note that some sites pre-flash the latest firmware so you don't neccessarily need a DS to update it the first time.

    Get Star Fox 64 3D. The replay value is very, very high, and it's a great game both on single-player and multiplayer. (It isn't wi-fi, unfortunately. At least all you need is one cart to get multiplayer running.)

    I'd go with the DSTWO. Entire library of DS games >>>>>>> a single 3DS game.

    Yeah but they charge too much for it and my cousin lives right beside me so i have no problem going to his house and update it in a few minutes than paying 7.50$ 2GB micro sd card with the flashcard and firmware when i can get an 8GB one by amazon for 7$.

    Can you(or anyone else with experience in ordering a pre-flashed Supercard 2,specifically) tell me which site does this for a fact?

    Leetmod is usually my source for flash cart purchases but i don't know if they pre-flash the SC for 3.0.0 but i do know that real hot stuff does it for the acekard.

    I would really appreciate an answer.

    I ordered from ZhuZhuChina on ShopTemp and they preflashed it, but it says preflashed for DSi 1.4.3 which could mean both the 3DS 2.2.0 firmware and 3.0.0, since both those updates are compatible with DSi 1.4.3.

    Choose one:
    Whole DS library or one 3DS game.

    You can get it to play at native resolution, but it looks like this.
