3DS Games I Need to Play

So recently, I caved and became an owner of a brand new Nintendo 3DS, only just adding to the family of Nintendo handheld consoles within my family, which include the original Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP, and Nintendo DS Lite.When the 3DS first came out, I believed that I would never purchase it, and therefore gave up my dreams of being able to play new games from my favourite series, namely Professor Layton, Phoenix Wright/Apollo Justice, and Pokemon. However, there was a deal last month where I just couldn’t pass up…and here I am today, a proud Pokemon trainer who has defeated the Elite Four.

Before I forget, I just wanted to quickly document a few games that I am extremely excited about playing sometime in the very near future….very near.

3) Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

  • Price:$39.99

4) Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright :Ace Attorney

Time to keep an eye open for some deals!

Pokemon.

So. It’s August 1st, which means I haven’t posted here for yet another month. I’m awesome!

Anyways, so I got a silver Nintendo DS Lite. I’ve been playing Professor Layton, My Pet Shop, Phoenix Wright, and of course…Pokemon Platinum on it.

I love playing these games. They are so interesting and fun and a good time killer! It’s like being a kid again, except that since I’m older, I know how to control myself and I won’t become obsessed. It’s just something else I can do when I have free time, other than reading, playing guitar, or making stuff.

But…is it really that immature? I didn’t and still don’t think so, but a few days ago I was playing some Phoenix Wright while waiting for food at a restaurant, and a bunch of rowdy kids crowded around me. They were like “Is that a DS?” “What game is that?” I suddenly felt kind of embarrassed that I, an 18-year-old university student, am playing with game systems that kids play with.

But then again…what’s the difference between this and DoTA? Not much.
