So I’m not going to get a Wii U as previously planned. There were several reasons for this decision. The delay of Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Rayman Legends being just as good on other platforms, and realizing that some of the games I wanted for the system, like Super Mario 3D World, New Super Mario Bros U and Lego City Undercover, just aren’t worth it. I’m aiming for my birthday in March now.
I’m not upset about this though because something I realized is why spend all this money on a Wii U and games for it when I have a 3DS XL with only three games to play? Yes, although I got a 3DS XL earlier this year, I haven’t bought a game for it since then. So I decided to rectify that. I bought The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D through the Nintendo eShop and I plan to get Pokemon X and Y. I’m not sure which one to get though. I was leaning towards Y but now I’m thinking X.
Regardless, I’ve decided to focus on playing the games I have that I haven’t played (like Far Cry 3 and Max Payne 3) and getting new releases for my 3DS, as my library for it is lacking. I only have the aforementioned Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Fire Emblem: Awakening. Off the top of my head of games to get for the 3DS are Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor Overclocked, Kid Icarus Uprising, Paper Mario Sticker Star, Star Fox 64 3D, Tales of the Abyss, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario and Luigi: Dream Team and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Having said that, are there any games that I’m missing? Are there some gems in the 3DS library that aren’t talked about much that deserve attention?
