I think I've got both of you on mine (will double check). I've also got pears, so visitors bearing other fruit are always welcome.

Edit

If anyone wants my FC, feel free to pm. :)

My friend code is: 2680-9707-8255 please add me!

I'm currently addicted to Animal Crossing, this game just totally mellows me out. Coming back to real life after switching t off is almost depressing :lol:

I've been playing some more of DK Country Returns and I got up to a level where a tidal wave sweeps you away if you're not in cover. 21 lives later and I switched it off in frustration. I'd read that the game was hard, I had no idea just how hard :o it'll take a lot of time to beat it I think..

Well I've had a 3ds since christmas 2011 and I have actually only picked up a few games for it:

Ocarina of Time 3D
Donkey Kong country returns
Resident evil (I forgot what the rest of it is called :P)
Super Mario 3D land

Although I have only a few games for the 3DS I think the backwards compatabililty for it is amazing and I have played a lot of old gameboy/gameboy advance games I missed when they were first released.

You can't.

Well if you think being a little sarcastic is being horrible...that's upto you, it wasn't meant in that way, just to clear up the fact the 3DS isn't backwards compatible, as in the PS4 won't be...

Maybe crotea just meant with DS games.

Anyway, lots of 3DS love going on here, do we think Nintendo have turned the 3DS around?

I briefly got to try my bother's 3DS XL and it's a cracking piece of kit, it really is like playing a portable console offering a very high standard of games. Seems to me like Ninty have really outdone themselves, especially with the XL model. And I really haven't noticed much bemoaning the relative lack of grunt and second analogue stick lately, is all forgiven?

I might add you, as I'm playing it too. Really liking the game! My friend code is: 1220-6699-2838

I'm also playing Resident Evil Revelations, and currently doing Raid mode. I'm almost done with the Trench difficulty, and got most stages S ranked. The game to be honest, it's the best RE I've played since 4 (still RE4 is the third best after RE2 and REbirth).

Lol, I think your probably joking but you can download them of the virtual store, now that I think about it does that even count as backwards compatability? Meh, you can get nes and snes games aswell :).
