- Enter The 3DS -
Well, the big weekend is right around the corner. Nintendo’s revolutionary new “glasses free” 3D hand-held will hit North American store shelves on Sunday and they’ve slapped together a fancy new commercial that I have to admit is pretty awesome. I really didn’t think anything could make me even more jealous of those with the means to nab it on day one, but that goddamned ad did it. See, despite the fact that I want one more than I want to someday be a father, I just can’t justify the fairly steep $249.99 price tag, let alone afford it. Nope, instead I think I’ll probably end up celebrating launch day by dropping 20 bucks on beer and extra batteries so I can finally show my Virtual Boy some love. That little guy has been giving me the sad eyes from across the room for long enough.
Anyway, here’s a list of the games that will be available right away along with clips for the ones that I actually give a shit about (Sorry, Jaws 19 is still yet TBA):
Nintendogs + Cats: (YES, I want this. Shut up.)
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition…
…and a bunch of other junk:
The Sims 3
Madden NFL Football
Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
RIDGE RACER 3D
Super Monkey Ball 3D
SAMURAI WARRIORS: Chronicles
Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow Wars
*But even if I did manage to sort out a way to pick this up, I’d probably still stay away from software for a little while. Games are going for $40 a pop and there’s plenty built into the system itself that should keep me occupied for a while. Just check out the last post on this site and you’ll get one idea of the fun that can be had with a 3D camera and those wacky ass AR cards.
Not to mention the fact that it’s also backwards compatible with DS carts, so I’ll have those to keep me busy too if I just have to play something. Ugh. Time to start selling some blood!
