Just bought 'Resident Evil Revelations' even though I already own the HD remake on PS3. I just want to get some use out of my XL Circle Pad Pro. Since I gave up on 'Monster Hunters' a while back it's been redundant. I originally bought the Circle Pad Pro to play 'Kid Icarus' with twin sticks... but sadly the functionality is only for the benefit of left handed people and doesn't turn it into a twin stick shooter. :(

^ ah I thought that was its purpose? can kid icarus be played just as well without the circle pad? and is there any reason to buy one? I see them for sale and wonder if it will be worth me parting a bit of money for it. I have resident evil revelations for 3ds, let us know how it goes with it.
got edge earlier from the eshop for a few quid, haven't played it yet but I really like the look of it. for some reason I can't download the etrian oddysey demo, anyone else having issues with it?

For Kid Icarus, its just for left handed chaps, its not required for playing.

Other games can be played without it, but it makes playing RE:R and Monster Hunter 3 a little better to play from what I hear.

Haven't played my 3DS for a while, only games I really have are animal crossing, street fighter, nintendogs, and zelda a link between worlds as a download.

Monster hunter has caught my eye, I have a copy on the wii, but as that isn't set up, I haven't had a chance to play it.

I have the psp version on the vita, played that abit, but everytime I pick it up I find I have to start again as I completely forget how to play it.

The 3DS version interests me as I heard its extremely "dumbed down"

Is it worth the pick up?


Sorry for the long post.

Trials: Fusion, looks great on the PS4 but is essentially the same game with a few bells on. Not sure about the season pass DLC though which would bring the cost up to over £30.
oops, wrong thread

After three in-game seasons, I think I've had my fill of Nintendo Pocket Football Club. I've got to admit that I did become a little bit attached to my team and players, but there's just so little to do and it's so skill-free. I don't mind that sort of thing in, say Animal Crossing or MySims, but I find the tactics in this not very involving and the matches to be, well, boring.

I don't like coming across as a tart when it comes to my gaming - last time I posted here, I was putting the boot into Yoshi's New Island - and I'm glad most people seem to have enjoyed it more than me. That said, I just don't enjoy NPFC.

Remakes? Again? Oh well, at least they'll sell like hot sh*t I suppose.

Can't believe that this was once my favourite ever franchise that I'd always buy on day one but I've not bought a game in the series since Diamond :|

Also, I vividly remember saving up money and buying the original Sapphire as soon as it was in the shops so this news makes me feel old!

Outrun on the 3DS! It looks pretty good, even with the redesigned "Ferrari".

Now that I can't wait for! The Ferrari redesign isn't too bad either although the new badge on the back looks a big like Maserati's?!? Anyway...a trivial observation.

Hopefully the Afterburner II conversion will make it to the Euro eshop too.

Looks good, I imagine the redesign is because they lost the license to show the cars or something didn't they? that was why the Outrun game was pulled from the Xbox Arcade anyway. Is this a Sumo Digital game?

Yes, Sega no longer hold a Ferrari license. I think all of the Sega 3D Classics are done by somebody called M2.
