What? It IS.
Remember my nerdgasm over the Zelda-themed 3DS pack
? I BOUGHT IT. It arrived yesterday morning and fdhjsgfssdfg.
I also bought Tales of the Abyss
whose European release date, incidentally, was also November 25th. So now I have the pretty console and a very nice 25th Anniversary of Zelda golden poster with several Links, Ocarina of Time
, and this one, which makes the early Christmas present well justified.
U MAD, AMERICA? |D *puts sunglasses and trollface on*
It's a little sad that the only things I really needed to buy this otherwise useless gadget were ports of favorite games of mine. Nintendo needs to hurry up with the good new games.
So, the software that comes with the Wii-- I mean 3DS, is interesting but a one trick puppy. Once I played the AR games twice, I kinda lost interest. I've never watched a movie in 3D, but I like the 3D mode in this thing... as long as it's in a very soft setting, just enough to make the objects and characters pop. To the max it's just a fucking blur to me. But one milimeter is cool.
The battery is as dreadful as I was told. I remembered last night, when it died on me, that one of the reasons I was waiting for a lite version was a better battery life. Nothing I can do, I guess.
I'm in the middle of Lord Jabu Jabu so I'm finishing with young Link soon. In Abyss I'm in the Cheagle Woods. It really makes me happy to be able to play again these games that meant so much to me, in new ways. Hell, I'm just glad I can actually PAY for Abyss as I had to play a pirated NTSC PS2 copy (this statement probably makes me a bad Latina). Of course Spaniards are whining and not buying it because it's in English, which is no surprise at all.
But yeah, Ocarina is fun and even pretty in 3D. There's still not much of a point for Abyss being 3(DS) yet, but then again I still can't set shortcuts on the touch screen. But fuck that, I love both games.
