There's some ripper deals around.

Found Madden really cheap online so grabbed it, it sounds okay for the casual player that just wants to play the odd game without all the stats etc. No multiplayers a shame, and lack of features is pretty lazy. The game itself looks like it looks sounds and plays well though.
Also got my eye on Sims 3 thats cheap.

I'm also open to games suggestions, wouldn't mind a good FPS for the 3DS collection as well. My own immediate games to seek out personally were Luigis Mansion 2, RE Revelations, Zelda OOT. I also was quick to pick up Mario games: Kart, 3D World, Tennis, you can generally rely on those to be fun.
Starfox 64 3D is also great.

Think I mentioned this previously through this topic, or somewhere around here anyway...My wish list would be the N64 'trilogy' of Racers in 1080, Waverace and Excitebike; Jet Set Gemini and Conkers BFD; and a really good Port of Doom 1/2. :)

In regards to games I'd recommend, it depends on how much you're willing to spend - here in the UK, you can get stuff for under a fiver, but other games will you more than £30.

Let's look at the former. While we're on the subject of cheap games, I'd get myself over to GAME, where they were selling Crush 3D and Shinobi for £4.99 apiece. HMV were selling Super Street Fighter IV 3D and Super Monkey Ball 3D for the same price when I was last in. The sublime Ridge Racer 3D shouldn't cost you much more, and Steel Diver is an interesting experiment that's worth a go at the sub-£10 price it seems to keep. You'd also perhaps like to download Tetris Axis from the eShop for £8.99 - there's a ton of content there, making it very good value for money. The eShop has some great exclusive downloadables too, such as Pullblox, Mutant Mudds, HyrdoVenture and Gunman Clive. I'd go for all of those.

Any other people wanting to share a code? I have just registered my 3DS. Also, after registering will I be able to get a code of my own to share or has Nintendo put something in place to stop that?

Other M style for 3DS PLEASE! Gameplay style rather than plot though.

Even if they ported Trilogy over to it, that would be mighty impressive.

Mind you, it would make the Circle Pad a little more necessary at least, right? XD

They could revert back to the Gamecube controls which only used the C-stick for weapon selection, you could do that on the touch screen instead.

Perhaps. Its been so long since I played the GC originals, I forgot what exactly the C Stick did. XD Thought control stick was to move around and C was for moving your arm cannon. XD

Or they can do whatever they did for the DS game I guess....

Had a go of Donkey Kong Country last night and I was really impressed! The controls are tight, the gameplay is challenging and the stages are vibrant and colourful. With all the collectibles I can see myself spending a good deal of time on it.

I also had a go of the Castlevania demo - pretty unimpressed. I loved the various DS iterations but this game plays little like them. Hate the visual style too - dark, dull & dreary. I'll wait until it hits the bargain bin (IF it hits the bargain bin!)

My thoughts exactly; although the difficulty is still slightly too high for me - I'll never get all the collectibles.

Again, I agree. The visuals are really poor, they should have stuck with 2D. The gameplay is also a chore - it just feels like you're constantly just climbing back up from where you fall because the level design is awful.

I've also been playing the new Fire Emblem quite a bit - it's really really good. It actually makes you care about your characters and it's all brought together by a well scripted story line. Probably one of the best 3DS games so far.
