3D Space Harrier is great, I'm really happy Sega's continuing the 3D series. I'm hoping Out Run, Afterburner and Power Drift are in the next set. :D

I've just started my adventure into Pokemon X (after my buddy finally convinced me to take it up again). HOLY MOLY, the changes to the series are evident right off the bat and are jaw-dropping!! Beautiful 3D models, trainer customisation, the mix of old & new pokemon, the subtle touches. This game is going to overtake my life for the next (approx) 120 hours :D

Space Harrier and Hang On work great in 3D. Also bought Sonic because... it's Sonic. Next is Galaxy Force II and Ecco the Dolphin, not really interested in either as IMO they aren't great on the MD. Maybe I'll be interested if Galaxy Force II is the arcade version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRbDQnPpc-8)

Is anybody playing Bravely Default and wants to get a rumble going on?

New update today. Miiverse for 3DS, our eShop and Nintendo Network IDs combined, and they're removed the number of times you can transfer software from 3DS to 3DS.

Is anybody else having problems updating the Mii Plaza and accessing the 3DS eShop? It's just not worked for me all day.

I think Miiverse is quite nicely done. That said, even though we were warned I'm surprised how few communities are up and running. They're curious choices too - the dodgy Harvest Moon port from last year has it's own community but Ocarina of Time 3D, Starfox 3D and Miracle Mask don't. Hmm...

First go on an imported 3DS, and have to say I'm pretty impressed. The 3D feature works really well, although I can see it possibly giving me eye strain on longer sessions. Just need to get hold of step-down for the charger now, unless a UK cradle and charger would just do the trick. I'm guessing not.

Picked up FIFA 13 for a tenner the other week and wow it is dreadful. Slow and unresponsive player movement and messy pixelly graphics, plus you cant change player shirt numbers which is annoying for a ocd fiend like myself. I cant believe how bad it is compared to PES 2011, the only other 3ds football game ive played and licenses and lack of modes aside, its great.

pretty sure a UK charger will be fine, ive been using a UK charger for my imported DS Lite & DSi XL for years.

3DS is my main gaming device at the moment, so many quality games available, there's too many for me to get through!

Just finished Attack of the Friday Monsters, quite a few people on my friends list seem to be playing it now that its on sale, really good little game & different to anything else ive got on 3ds

Them 3D Sega 16bit classics are amazing, everybody with a 3ds should try at least one of them, think I've bought most of them now (apart from altered beast!!), cant wait for the second wave of them...

I've also just made a start on A Link Between Worlds yesterday :D

Yeah, seen it a few times in dump bins and heard it was panned pretty much universally so gave it a miss. Best cheap game I've bought was Ridge Racer, which I really enjoy :)

^ Yep, surprisingly enough it works just fine, which is nice. The Bravely Default sequel is probably next on my wish list. Don't usually bother with import RPGs, but it seems this one includes an English option. :)

Got a 3DS a few weeks back, and have been enjoying it like i thought I would. Finally got to play Excite Bike for the first time, and it is awesome in 3D as well. Was lucky to pick up heaps of the games Ive been wanting for round $10 each. Got some voucher for Christmas so i bought Mario Kart 7 at around $50.

Enjoying Tekken 3d, just wish it had more features, gameplay wise it's my favorite Tekken since T:DR for the PSP.
