Pretty sure everyone has played it to death but it's worth picking up a 3DS for Mario 3D Land alone. Hands down the best Mario game I've played for years, prefer it to Galaxy 2, it just keeps on giving. I'll be buying a wiiu for 3D Land and X.

My only gripe with the hardware is the lack of region free. No excuse Nintendo, every other handheld has been region free. Can't wait for Shin Megami Tensei IV and Soul Hackers, would have imported long ago had the console not been region locked.

Would love to see more N64 era love on the console, 1080', a proper Pilotwings, F Zero GX port, Wave Race, new Star Fox, Mystical Ninja etc.

The very last of my 3DS pickups for a long time now - these were super cheap at my local GameCentre:

Resident Evil Revelations - £11.99
Spirit Camera (Fatal Frame) - £8.99
Super Street Fighter IV - £4.99

Proper bargains - looking forward to trying spirit camera, I loved previous games in the series and while I know this takes a wildly different approach I'm hoping it'll still be fun.

Was playing Animal Crossing with a friend and visited her town. She caught a rare fish for the first time while i was there, then the connection messed up and kicked me out. She lost her fish too!

Not entirely sure how the town/market development works. Shes had it the same amount of time as me but seems to be lightyears ahead in everything :S
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

It may be tied to how much you purchase and sell at the local shops. That's my theory anyway :oops:

I'd be keen on Spirit camera if I can find it cheap enough :)

Been reading some reviews of Animal Crossing...I know it'll get the better of me and I'll have to try this out :lol:

Some of it's to do with how much money you spend (I think), some of it you have yo go into the Town Hall, sit in the chair at the back and set projects up, which you'll then have to pay for. (you can take as little/long as you want). Doing certain things seems to trigger certain events and make certain projects available.....for instance, I quit my game without saving at one point just to see Resetti appear with one of his long winded lectures, but when he did he only spoke briefly and said that times were hard and that I needed to fund a Reset Centre. This then became available as a project in the town hall, I completed it (cost around 368,000 bells in total) and now Resetti has a proper base of operations in my town and appears to tell me off every time if I don't save. Donating a lot of stuff to the museum eventually triggers Blathers (the museum curator) to ask for an expansion, which is then added to the list of projects available in the Town Hall. It's worth having a look at what's available every now and then.

If you journey to Tortimer's Island and just fill your item box up with bugs that you catch off the palm trees there (Goliath Beetles, Horned Atlas, etc), you can make 1000's of bells in a very short space of time, and get most things funded pretty quickly.

^ Cheers for the help Toxie and Rayne. I did think it might have something to do with expenditure since she has all sorts of town projects funded and i'm still on my first!

I'm going to leave my AC gate open for a while if anybody wants to drop by and take some fruit.

Oops, I think I went to close my gate so I could add you just as you arrived.
Anyway you're already on my friend list, my code is 2277-7072-0232, hopefully it will work.

I'll leave it open to around 18:30-19:00.

Can anyone who has played/completed Castlevania 3DS, tell me the completion time of it, and if there are any unlockables etc to warrant extended play?

That Edge cover is great! I feel like i'm really missing out on Animal Crossing but I just know it will bore me to death!

Picked up Paper Mario: Sticker Star today for £22. It's a birthday present for the wife but I had a cheeky go (to test it, you understand) and it plays nicely. More in the style of Thousand Year Door than Super Paper Mario, which is not what I expected.
