  1. Went into Cambridge on Sunday to finish off some xmas shopping and ended up coming home with 2 3DS’, Mario Kart 7 and Mario World 3D (whoops! good ol’ xmas bonus).
    Nice looking list, will definatley be picking up Resident Evil, Metal Gear, Tekken, Pro Layton and Luigis Mansion over the next 12 months :)

  2. Nothing for me :(

  3. I couldnt justify paying for a 3DS for 3 titles I am interested in when the Vita is only a few short months away with 7 titles I am interested in at release. Nintendo have lost my love at the moment.

    • @Omac_brother, play Mario 3DS, the love will flood back! The sort of game that makes you whoop and giggle to yourself. AMAZING!

      • I’d agree with this. A ‘quick race’ on MarioKart7 between my mate and I ended up becoming a 3hour tournament, which was eventually settled in a tense baloon battle.
        Sony and Microsoft may be the masters when it comes to military shooters, etc, but Ninty are still the pioneers of straight up fun :)

  4. Only one is Resisdent Evil:Revalations so I really hope that gets ported to psvita.

    • 91% in this month’s “Games Master”. Apparently its the proper sequel to RE4, unlike RE5 (though I highly enjoyed tht game too)

  5. I thought they were making a Bit.Trip game for the 3DS? It was the only reason I considered buying one.

  6. Meh, want a PSV more than ever now.

  7. All I want to know is if they are planning a hardware redesign!

    • Uh-huh. Whip a re-designed 3DS out and my interest level will rocket.

  8. Mario Party 9 for me, please! :)

  9. I really want a 3DS for the 1st party stuff, but I first want to know for sure whether or not there will be a new version released with two thumbsticks. And I want a Vita a bit more due to compability with my PS3…

  10. I am interested in RE:R but from the videos i have seen of it, it seems that you will spend msot of your time, staring at Jill’s arse. What? You can’t ignore it. I am hoping that it gets ported to the Vita or consoles as i can’t justify investing in a 3DS.

    MGS:3D, i’m not interested in it due to the MGS collection. I hope they redesign the 3DS as the addon is bigger then the console itself! :O
