The best - undisputed, an absolute marvel and benchmark in portable gaming. So many emotions, forever nostalgia.

The worst - I am just salty it isn't longer, thats why. It shouldn't be playing with my fucking heart like that

u/Alderez · 29 pointsr/gaming

Heart Gold and SoulSilver are both $294.99 each on Amazon.

u/Spicy-McHaggis · 26 pointsr/3DS

It’s been well established that Cory in the House holds the title of best 3DS game there is, was, or ever will be

u/Crasher_TL · 25 pointsr/Games

It's a matter of opinion. I think that FTL looks pretty nice while Terraria looks like crap, yet I never grew up with games that looked like that.

BTW, it's not 8-bit graphics. This is 8-bit. Note how everything isn't really shaded. Now compare it to Terraria. 8-bit means there is a 256 colour scheme. Here is the total amount of colours you can achieve on an 8-bit console. While it may seem like a lot, it's not that much if you compare it to what we have today.

Pixel art is the correct term. Terraria and most other games are usually either 16-bit or 32-bit, meaning you can have a more diverse colour scheme.

Most indie games aren't 8-bit, they're usually 16-bit or higher. Of course, there are some that try to be/are 8-bit (Cave Story and VVVVVV comes to mind), and since "8-bit" is fairly easy to copy (quick to make and easy to animate, as the sprites are usually small).

So if you have a limited budget (which 99% of indie devs do), then you'll more likely to get out more content/polish things up if you didn't spend 50 hours doing sprites.

Bottom line is this: most indie games use pixel art, not "8-bit graphics". And whether or not you like it is all up to you, it's your opinion.

Sorry if this came off as ranty, I just find it annoying when somebody gets the two terms mixed up.

u/PsiGuy60 · 23 pointsr/3DS

I have a Hori game case that holds 24 of 'em. Amazon page here, though it's also available in other colors (I have an entirely translucent one).

Good quality, should last a long time if used properly (don't just push the cartridge in from the top, slide it in pushing against the inner tab. It has a slight amount of give to it to prevent breakage).

I also have one of those same cheap Chinese ones and you're right - the tabs on those break easily.

u/CCarr33 · 22 pointsr/splatoon

Are you taking about this thing?

u/DrTrevorkian · 20 pointsr/gamecollecting
u/Evan_Tor · 20 pointsr/3DS

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward has one of the best stories of any game i've ever played, and it happens to be on 3DS. It is, however, a sequel to the equally amazing 999 for DS. I would recommend getting 999 and finding out if it grabs you the same way it grabbed me, and then getting VLR if you want to. You can get 999 for 25 dollars on amazon. Very much worth it. Fair Warning: They are choose your own adventure visual novels. With lots of puzzles throughout. That being said they are still both fun and gripping games.

u/mrstickman · 19 pointsr/rpg_gamers

The World Ends With You. Hands down, flat-out, bar none. This game pulls off a miracle by making the gameplay and the plot about the same thing.

u/siriuslyred · 19 pointsr/AskReddit

Have you got a Gameboy (or DS!)? Any Gameboy will do! You got it?? Good!! Now, depending on the generation of Gameboy in your hand, follow one of these links:

Original -> Pokemon Red / Pokemon Blue / Pokemon Yellow - Pikachu Edition

Gameboy Color -> Pokemon Silver / Pokemon Gold / Pokemon Crystal

Gameboy Advance -> Pokemon Ruby / Pokemon Sapphire / Pokemon Emerald

Nintendo DS -> Pokemon Diamond / Pokemon Pearl / Pokemon Platinum

Nintendo DS -> Pokemon Black / Pokemon White

... and sort your life out!

EDIT: As people rightly pointed out, no 3DS Pokemon yet, fixed it!

u/newbatthis · 12 pointsr/3DS

That's... so weird. Just keep the cartridge. It has resale value. You never have to worry about being unable to play it.

I say just get a nice game case. I got this one from Amazon recently for my growing collection.

u/lsdlkjdsaf · 11 pointsr/3DS

I also own this game case, and it came with a plastic clip shaped like a DS game that fits an SD card specifically for this purpose. It's kind of useless to me since my SD card is always in my 3DS (The one in the picture is a spare), but it's convenient for this case because I only have 17 physical games (So far).

u/nintendomech · 11 pointsr/3DS

Cory in the house.

Highly rated game but a shit game. I don’t get it. Granted is a DS game.

u/ChillFax · 10 pointsr/todayilearned

Okay So i just bought a New DS XL and I have been looking at games I would like. Then your comment comes along and tells me that they have indeed my favorite game of all time for a system I have just bought. WET PANTS. Then I look to purchase this game and find this

Thats right $129.99!?! that surely can not be the correct price...

u/trippybrii · 9 pointsr/3DS

Totally recommend this case holds up to 24 cards, sd card slot is removable, and all of the games fit perfectly!

u/wilcocliw · 8 pointsr/gaming
u/Byelliybear · 8 pointsr/3DS

I found a really good awesome cases on

Super legit case. I love how the case is secured and connected by hinges(I have two New 3DS XL and two New 3DS systems. Some hinges of the systems are more loose, there seems to always be a variance or play) But this case makes your 3DS really sturdy and protects it.

They also have it for the New 3DS XL....

EDIT: Also for pouches and traveling, just buy any 3DS case and it will fit/suffice. I use this and and this one for at home

u/gnarlyswells · 8 pointsr/3DS

Wash hands before playing, don't eat while you play, keep it in a hard pouch/case, use a screen protector, clean using a microfiber cloth, don't do stupid stuff like jam a coin into the circle pad to hatch eggs in pokemon.

For example, I use these for pouch / cloth / screen protector:


screen protector:

edit - to add to this, I personally wrap my 3ds in the microfiber cloth before putting it in the pouch

u/Damaniel2 · 8 pointsr/gamecollecting

No shovelware collection is complete without this gem:

It's cheap, too, so you have no excuse.

u/BarbequeChickenWings · 7 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

Hey OP, I have some suggestions for you (these are on the DS side of things, as I don't have a 3DS yet because I've been mainly PC gaming). I copied this from one of my earlier posts on the same subject.

  • Elite Beat Agents - This is a rhythm game where you tap circles and draw lines while following the beat of a song, as secret agents dance in the background and try to save the world. I know it sounds kooky, and it is, but that's half the fun. The Japanese original, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, was such a huge cult hit that they came out with the English version in Elite Beat Agents. There are a bunch of great songs on it, and the covers are actually decent (a couple are better than the original). Each song opens with a story that introduces someone in need of your help -- and somehow it's your dancing/cheering which pushes him/her to succeed. The stories are often hilarious, but there is one that will rip your heart out and make you teary. Absolutely love this game. (Screen protector strongly recommended!)

  • Rhythm Heaven - Another rhythm-based game, but these two are just really fun and I decided to recommend both. Rhythm Heaven is different from Elite Beat Agents in that it's more a collection of mini games you need to beat in order to advance. There are about 5 mini games in a collection (and around 8 collections in all, I think), and once you beat each one individually, you are given a 'recap' round that basically mashes them all together. This game looks deceptively simple but can be so damn difficult at times that achieving success is so satisfying! The beats in this game are very catchy.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass - Lovely RPG. I thought the visuals were beautiful, and it was fun to play. Not much to say except it's a Zelda game, an awesome and fun one at that. The game makes use of the DSL's touchscreen. Controls may be kind of a bit hard to familiarize yourself with if you're used to normal console controls for Zelda, but after a while you get the hang of it and it's really fun to slash your sword around.

  • Advance Wars: Dual Strike - Tactical turn-based strategy game where you try to battle it out with enemies and crush them all. I didn't think I'd like it, but I'm SO glad I gave it a try. I remember staying up late into the night playing this. It's really addicting. There's a sequel, Days of Ruin, but I've never played that so can't give a personal opinion on it. It comes highly recommended, though.

  • Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon - Take the original Harvest Moon games that were about farming and raising animals and getting to know people in your town, and add in some RPG-ish dungeon crawling (where you can also tame monsters to help out on your farm), and you have Rune Factory. I will always have a soft spot for Harvest Moon games; this just adds another element to it.

  • Mario Kart DS - This is fun, and there's just something addictive about it that kept me coming back for yet another round. I liked this version, though some people do say the controls are a bit off, but I never experienced that.

    Other games that have been strongly recommended by others (but I have not played):

  • Final Fantasy III
  • Golden Sun: Dark Dawn
  • Radiant Historia
  • Kirby Canvas Curse
  • Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

u/cueball1897 · 7 pointsr/3DS

All great suggestions, but I haven't seen anyone mention Chrono Trigger

u/Sairyn_ · 7 pointsr/3DS

For both N3DS and N3DSXL systems

Some of these can also be found from retailers online, like Best Buy and Target. I generally use Best Buy, Amazon, and eBay, but check other retailers just in case.

Case: Looking for a protector that protects your system from scratches? Most people recommend the HORI TPU case. NA currently has one for the XL (LL in Japan), but you'll have to import one for the standard size.

  • HORI TPU case for N3DSXL or sometimes the one from Japan is cheaper.
  • HORI TPU case for N3DS, or just search "New 3DS HORI TPU" and look for the ones without XL/LL in the title.

    Looking for a pouch to keep your system from dust or to carry on-the-go and protect them from falls? There's sooo many options you can just search up on Amazon and eBay, not to mention other Japanese import sites.

  • HORI Hard Pouch for N3DSXL is what I went with for my Fire Emblem N3DSXL. Looks plain and I admit I usually go for something different, but when I received it, it screamed good quality. It's black and looks classy, and there's room for 6 cartridges and a stylus. It also fits a system with the HORI TPU on. Alternatively, you can use this for the standard N3DS because it has a strap that will keep it in place.
  • CyberGadget Mint Semi-Hard case for N3DSXL - I originally went for this one. It's fine if you just want to carry around your system, but that's all the room it has. It also had a weird chemical smoky smell that I'm still trying to air out (it's been over 2 weeks now). If the smell ever gets out, I'll use it. Maybe it's just the one I purchased.
  • Trunk Case for N3DS - I have the blue one, and it's decent quality. These trunk cases seem to be in and out of stock though, and prices are unstable. If you can find one for a good price, I'd recommend it.

    Screen Protectors: Screens will inevitably get scratched, as careful as anyone can be. If you're someone who cannot stand scratches or want to keep your system in perfect condition, you can't go wrong with screen protectors.

  • HORI Standard Screen Protectors for N3DSXL is what I had on my old N3DSXL. Here's one for the N3DS. Appliance is easy and they don't interfere with the 3D at all.
  • HORI Blue Light Filtering Screen Protectors for N3DSXL and ones for the N3DS - I just wanted to reduce the blue light because I mainly play before I sleep. Research a bit about blue light if you'd like. I like them, they do the same job as the standard ones with the added blue light filtering.

    Micro SD card: Can't go wrong with Sandisk, and I purchased the 32GB since that's the highest Nintendo says the system will support. Any higher and you have to format it to FAT32 in your PC so the system will recognize it. Any good brand will be fine though, but I just go with Sandisk all the time.

    Stylus: This DSi stylus is so damn comfortable. I never thought it mattered because I just put up with the cramping, but I purchased some items on the Nintendo Online store, so I went for it. It's all I use now. The cheapest shipping is $5 on the store though, so go for it when you're ordering other items with it.

    For N3DS
    Coverplates: Amazon.JP if you have a forwarding service like Tenso. I like AmiAmi, but it's hard to catch the plates sometimes. PlayAsia tends to be more pricey, so sometimes you're better off just looking on eBay if your last resort is PlayAsia.

    For N3DSXL and N3DS

    Charms: Basically the same as the above. Many options around Etsy, just search what you want up. Up to your discretion. :)

    Yeah, I'm a HORI fan. Their products have been solid for me, so I have no qualms with them. I just wish more of their products would appear in NA so shipping times would be shorter, but I think the wait times have been worth it anyway.
u/rarelypost · 6 pointsr/patientgamers

The 2DS is a 3DS model, so you can play 3DS games as well. If you are going to use an R4 card, you'll have to pay attention to firmware versions and what cards work with which ones.

I personally don't use an R4 card, I just grab a few DS or 3DS games every now and then when there's a good sale. It's not really worth the hassle for me, plus I like having access to the eShop.

You can also put all of your DS and 3DS games in a Hori case, which I found works really well.

u/UndeadArgos · 6 pointsr/gamecollecting
u/SpartanMonkey · 6 pointsr/3DS

I call this my "Executive 3DS case".
People think it's a smartphone case when they see it on my desk.
Edit: Also, I'm 45. I'm not much younger than the old farts that manage me.

u/snuxoll · 6 pointsr/Design

I don't know about you, but is really hard for me to type in on my phone, even shortened url's can be a giant pain when all I have is the software input panel on my HTC Surround. QR codes are awesome, I point my camera at them and my browser opens up whatever lengthy URL I need to go to. I don't know why so many people consider them gimmicky or useless, they aren't there to 'replace' existing information like URL's and contact information, but to augment it and make it easier to get into a users phone.

u/bigkongboss · 5 pointsr/3DSdeals

Please, Pleaaase start with the first game on the DS, then work your way towards completing them in order. It is a very strongly story based driven game. You will miss out on huge chunks of story if you start elsewhere.

u/redditbutblueit · 5 pointsr/3DS
u/CoachPop121 · 5 pointsr/rpg_gamers Sorry this is considered Chrono Trigger . my bad

u/earworms · 5 pointsr/rpg_gamers

I know they have Chrono Trigger for Android now.

They also have it for DS.

Other DS games I have liked are The World Ends with You, FF III, FF IV, and Advanced Wars.

u/illbeinmybunk · 5 pointsr/GirlGamers

Assassin's Creed is a great game series, but it's pretty violent - you play an assassin, after all. If you want to give it a shot, start with AC2 - it's a much better game than AC1.

Given that you liked Phoenix Wright (oh I do love Feenie.. there need to be more games in that series like yesterday), you could give Ghost Trick a shot. It's got a very similar sort of "feel" to it, though it's a bit more puzzle-y and less investigate-y, if that makes sense. It's by the same folks who did PW, for what that's worth, and I highly enjoyed it. I found the puzzle concepts really neat, too.

And given that you like mystery novels, I recommend 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. Lots of drama, puzzles, decisions, and many different endings. Also lots of reading - it feels more like a book than PW did, to me. I haven't finished this one myself, but it sounds like it might be something you would enjoy. I liked it well enough, it was just more serious that what I was looking for at the time, and I haven't gone back to it yet.

Note, I'm assuming you have a DS of some fashion, since you said you'd played PW; both Ghost Trick and 999 are DS games.

Hope you find something that you enjoy, and happy gaming!

u/AmazonTR · 5 pointsr/GirlGamers

My favorites:

[Sweet Fuse: At Your Side] (!/en-us/games/sweet-fuse-at-your-side/cid=UP1024-ULUS10652_00-BAKUDANHANDAN001)

Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom

Corpse Party

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows

999 already mentioned by another in this thread.

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward The sequel to 999.

Also, to a lesser extent anything by Winter Wolves. I've played a few and a lot of them are now on Steam too. These contain a bit more busy work than I'd like, but some solid stories there.

u/mtama22 · 5 pointsr/3DS

The clear Hori case is nice. I have the red one with my red 3ds xl, but it will keep the outside of your console safe. The Hori carrying case is nice too, but only holds 6 games (7 if you keep one in the 3ds). I have this one:

Surprisingly it's $2 cheaper than the regular. The 3ds with the protective cover fits in this case, but it's a tight fit.

Why don't you like screen protectors? I have screen protectors on all my electronics with screens, but I follow a long process to get them on. I don't even notice my screen protectors anymore. I don't know about the circular bumpers, but I'm also worried about scratching up my bottom screen with the stylus. Good luck.

u/anaharae · 5 pointsr/3DS

I imported mine from Japan. It is made specifically for the n3DS. It holds 3 physical games, and has dual zippers.

You can get it for $14 on eBay.

I also use this Mario case. It has a slot for a long stylus, which I use alot. It holds 6 games, and has dual zippers aswell. Although its bigger, it includes n3DS on the package along with the XL, but a strap to hold it in.

u/Ninjalup · 4 pointsr/3DS

Hori 24 game case

Edit: Oops didn't see that you wanted a cloth case.

u/Carole4815 · 4 pointsr/3DS

I got the Hori 3DS game card case on Amazon. It's $9.99. It has slots for 24 game cards (one of which is really for an SD card) and holds both 3DS and DS game cards. I can also fit a spare stylus in it although I'm not sure if there is a designated space for it or not. Anyway, this case seems OK to me. I have had others that broke but this one hasn't yet.

u/captain_herbal_life · 4 pointsr/gamecollecting

Not OP but i've been looking into these portable systems for a while. Supposedly these are a bit better than the Supaboy, but without having owned either I couldn't tell ya.

u/MaulerGWR · 4 pointsr/gaming

Definitely can find it cheaper than this, but link in case you needed it for reference.

u/Kocrachon · 4 pointsr/GameDeals

> ing AS/OR

AS/OR are still in production, so yeah, easy.

I recently did a calculation of all of the main series pokemon games if I bought them used on Amazon, the total was nearly 1000 dollars.

Even look at Pokemon Plat

70 dollars for a used crappy copy.

50 bucks for a decent used copy of yellow.

Pokemon is not cheap.

u/ejackso1 · 4 pointsr/3DS

Brand new copies are $10.75 on Amazon.

u/ThachWeave · 4 pointsr/gaming

Man, your seller must've been in a hurry or didn't check what others were selling for. HeartGold BY ITSELF goes for about $100.

u/Ugly_Muse · 4 pointsr/3DS

I use this case for my XL. I keep it in my back pocket. Not oversized pockets, feels heavy but it keeps it cushioned and holds 3 games, which means I can have 4 on hand.

u/berserkering · 4 pointsr/gaming

Yep, the credit doesn't apply to EVERYTHING but it works for most things. Just read the Bonus Offers near the release date. You can get either black or white, of course.

u/FuzzyMcLumkins · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hmm.. I would say check out This as a starter, since there are a couple of games in the series. But it is cheap enough, I'm assuming your budget is less than 30 dollars since that's the typical 3DS/DS game prices. But I would say check out Phoenix Wright, it's a pretty good puzzle game and it makes you think on your feet on what to say during the trials. I normally don't like thinking on my feet, but it's fun to see the consequences change when you mess up, so yes. it is possible to fail a case and move onto another one.

You can also check out Animal Crossing: New Leaf for a simple game as well. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as well for a puzzle/action game. That's all I can think off on the top of my head for the 3/DS games. Enjoy! :)

u/uberguy3535 · 3 pointsr/gaming
u/Corysinthehouse · 3 pointsr/copypasta

u/thevioletsage · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Sounds like you need Cory in the House for the Nintendo DS. As you can see, it has nothing but stellar reviews. I'm sure you could beat it in no time!

u/BombOmbBuddy · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

You may not be super down for another JPRG, but The World Ends With You is perhaps the best JRPG on the system.

u/IChawt · 3 pointsr/3DS

The World Ends With You, it recently got an English Android remake too, so check that out.

u/rahnawyn · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

Did you have an original DS/have you played any of those yet? The DS has a ton of great titles that you can play on your 3DS if didn't start there (or even if you did!)

Here's a long list of random games that you might enjoy:

u/ZeldaFierceDeity · 3 pointsr/gamecollecting

I luckily got it for $22 sealed from amazon prime a year ago. Now its $53 for the same exact thing I got a year ago!

Chrono Trigger

anyone know why it got so rare all of a sudden?

u/Notpoe779 · 3 pointsr/PSP

get the DS version. It's as good as the final fantasy 1 psp remake

i'm not joking, there's not even any debate to this, the DS one is flat out the best version

i feel like the people that say any different just didn't play it, there's even an option to not use the second screen so it plays almost exactly like the snes version

get it on DS

here's the amazon link:

new copies are $24 and the shipping is free if you get like another dollar worth of select products, so grab yourself a cheap dvd or something

i'm dead serious, this is the only thing i ever flat out shut people down on when debating

DS port is god tier, get it

u/Black-Rabbit · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love to have it so i can play my pokemon emerald game! And get more GBA games too if possible.

This is the DS game i want, it looks fun.

Radler is rad

u/flange2point0 · 3 pointsr/pokemon

This was mostly what i was referring to, which is as you said, new in the box (i think.)

u/Bortjort · 3 pointsr/3DS

This is my favorite case for the 3DS XL, says it's for the DSi XL so you can get it really cheap and fits the system and games perfectly. The "leather" actually feels surprisingly nice, one of the better feeling fakes for sure. Inside is your typical soft case material. It's thinner than many of the zipper designs and probably protects a little less, but if you're throwing it in a bag the size is great.

u/stephenfsnow · 3 pointsr/3DS

This is what I have for my 3DSXL. I love it

  • Joke: A guy meets a hooker in a bar. She says, "This is your lucky night. I’ve got a special game for you. I’ll do absolutely anything you want for $300, as long as you can say it in three words." The guy replies, "Hey, why not?" He pull his wallet out of his pocket, and one at a time lays three hundred-dollar bills on the bar, and says, slowly: "Paint…my…house."

    Super happy birthday to you! I hope it's a great one.
u/katieelizabethe · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have this one:

There are cheaper variants, but I can't speak for how effective they are. This one holds cartridges very firm into place so they don't fall out ever, while still being easy to take out from the sides.

u/edzo004 · 3 pointsr/3DS

You need one of these

u/SeaShanties · 3 pointsr/3DS

I got the hard case so I can carry it in my purse without having to worry about scratches and it'll hold a few games, stylus, AR cards and cable cord. Only complaint I've seen on videos is there's like a 1/2" wiggle room side to side, but don't think it'll beat up too much in my purse, or can modify it with a little strip of sponge/cushion.

I also got a case for 24 games because I don't like sorting through each game box, and a lot of used stuff I got from Game Stop came in a paper sleeve.

I got an extra power cord so I don't have to keep unplugging it from room to room, but would definitely recommend a USB cable, I'm probably going to get one of those as well, but was sold out when I went looking last week.

I'm sure you can price shop - but that's what I picked up as a new 3DS XL owner!

Edit: OH!! Definitely get a top and bottom screen protector - I got the Invisible Shield or whatnot from Best Buy while I was there, I didn't want my pretty new screen scratched from all the tap tap tapping.

u/Good_ApoIIo · 3 pointsr/gaming

Don't include the ROMs, and you're golden. Really though, since the SNES/NES patents have been dead, there are plenty of decent clones available already...and they're portable. I have the SupaBoy and it's pretty neat and I've heard really good things about the PokeFAMI DX but I believe it can only play Super Famicom games.

Actually it looks like they sell a version of it without an OS? So maybe you can do whatever with it.

u/mattmonkey24 · 3 pointsr/nintendo

I use this:

It can output power and input at the same time (charge and discharge simultaneously). It can use type c or micro usb for charging. It can output 3a via type c. For a power bank, it has everything you need

And for a case I'll get one very similar to this one because it is not overly bulky, but still very sturdy.

u/legoknight · 3 pointsr/3DS

HORI makes some pretty cool cases. I just picked up this retro 8-bit Zelda case about a month ago. I love it so far. They even make a Mario and Luigi variation. All of them have space for six games and an extra stylus slot.

u/RWCHIEF · 3 pointsr/3DS

I got the retro Mario Hard Pouch from Hori and I'm in love with it. On Amazon

u/jcqantihero · 3 pointsr/3DS I have this one and I love it if toy look in the related items they have more of Zelda isn't your thing.

u/writing_bodies · 3 pointsr/3DS

I have this one from Hori. I have an N3DS but the pouch is for an XL which fits perfectely.

Also, I just noticed the pouch carries only 6 cartridges.

u/tracklete95 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would like it so I can finally give my little sister my gameboy advance that she's wanted for years. I would love this game in used condition! Radler is rad!

u/thekidwiththelisp · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. I got the first model of the DS, and I played the hell out of it. Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Pokemon - many games entertained me for hours. However, I then made the foolish move to buy Guitar Hero On Tour for it. The screen is now more or less unusable, it is so nonsensitive. Since then, I have not had the money or opportunity to replace it, UNTIL NOW.


    If this is sold, you dont need to get me a game - I appreciate the DS alone.

I don't know how much bigger it would have been, but it's already pushing portability for a handheld as it is with the Joy-Cons included.

It's not that digital media isn't popular, it's that I don't see the inconvenience of carrying a game seperately when compared to having a lighter slimmer handheld. I keep my 3ds games in one of These and it's worked out very well.

u/icravedanger · 2 pointsr/3DS

Nintendo has a lot of "official products" that they don't make, but they license other companies to make. For example, these are official Nintendo game cases too.

As for the Club Nintendo rewards game cases, they're not available right now. People sell them on eBay for around $20-25.

u/ayakokiyomizu · 2 pointsr/3DS

I like the Hori game card case, if you're looking for any case and not that one in particular.

u/Tizzysawr · 2 pointsr/3DS

I like the HORI ones, like this one. They fit 24 games, have a nice form, and are sturdy enough for what they're meant to do.

u/Nephrastar · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Those Hormel Compleats meals. I tried the Turkey and Dressing; I microwaved it, took a whiff, was mildly disgusted... and I took a bite. Worst bite of food I've ever taken, let me tell you. It's like eating matter almost.

In any case, here's the item. Just thinking of those compleats makes my stomach turn.

u/gameboy00 · 2 pointsr/3DS

Since you do own a lot of physical games and like them, consider this case!

I just got one it's pretty small and even holds regular DS cartridges

welcome aboard, you have a nice set of games

u/PigeonsOnYourBalcony · 2 pointsr/3DS

You can something like this:

There are plenty of other different kinds of games cases to choose from though

u/cardshark1234 · 2 pointsr/3DS

I don't personally own it because I only have 2 loose cartridges, but I hear great things about this case.

u/Azarro · 2 pointsr/3DS

^Very good point; I wanted to mention this as well but forgot.

The Club Nintendo case is nice though I would recommend if extra dollars can be spared. More compact!

u/UrbanSunflower · 2 pointsr/3DS

Amazon carries it for the price listed on Hori's website! Here's the link.

u/dom_8 · 2 pointsr/3DS

You can get a 3DS case that can hold your games and system or you can look to get a game card holder

u/impatiensbloom · 2 pointsr/3DS

That case was based on this officially licensed case by Hori:

I have both the original and the knock-off, and the original has all the cards rightside-up, and it has a removable clip for your sd card. The original is also considerably more durable, since my knock-off is on its last legs after a couple of desk-height falls.

u/chezkevin · 2 pointsr/pokemon

The preview images have a little plastic insert in the steelbook that has space for two of the cartridges. I'm betting it's just the steelbook without any other game case, but I could be wrong.

If you want to play it safe, you could get one of those cartridge cases:

or get the games individually at $32 each. Or, give your friend the steelbook.

u/Derko1 · 2 pointsr/3DS

Just a suggestion... I just recently bought this one. It holds the game tight and is pretty nice and compact. I do wish I would have gotten the case from clubnintendo, but don't have the coins for it either. It isn't available anywhere else. Haven't been able to find it on eBay either.

The only thing I am hoping, is that with it all being discontinued, they'll some how end up on their site for regular ordering.

u/Rozzay · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hi :)

Pokemon Black 2

I havent had a chance to get it yet.. and I really want to play because its pokemon... lol

u/DeeBeeR · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

Animal Crossing: Wild World: It's an amazing game and was one of my first games on a Nintendo DS. There's so much to do in the game and I would really recommend it. Also, the more recent Animal Crossing (New Leaf) is a huge improvement from Wild World. I would deeply recommend that aswell, but it's for 3DS.

Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands: Harvest Moon is a game that's similar to Animal Crossing but it's mostly about looking after your farm, growing crops, raising animals, etc. It's extremely fun and a huge time sink.

Pokemon Black 2: It's a Pokemon game, you can't really go wrong. It's like every other Pokemon game - Fun as heck! You can also buy Pokemon White 2 which is just about the same with little differences like the UI. A list of differences can be found HERE.

My list may not really be descriptive as they're my personal opinion on the games, but if you want to know more about the games, ask me :)

u/aznkidq94 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/Rachplaysbass · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would LOVE THIS. I had to sell my DSI about a month ago to help me boyfriend pay a bill and it made me so sad, his sister is letting me barrow her old school DS while I wait to get a new one!(which honestly isn't gonna be anytime soon :() Thanks for the contest.
This game is my favourite and tthe only reason I have a ds in the first place!

I prefer the Retro Duo Portable. Because, well, its portable. Plays SNES straight into the system, NES with adapter (comes with purchase) and Genesis games with adapter (sold separately)

u/Gr8NonSequitur · 2 pointsr/3DS

I have an 8 Bit Zelda case that holds 6 games. I also have a 64 GB SD card in my 3DS. I tend to buy single player games physical but multiplayer games digital so it's always with me and I can throw down with my son at a moment's notice.

u/nectarprime · 2 pointsr/3DS

Cases like this will totally fit:

Cases that fit over your 3ds while you use it, like the HORI TPU cases, will obviously not fit. There is a new version of them coming out though.

u/Negat1veCreep · 2 pointsr/3DS

The charging cradle is great, unfortunately it leaves you unable to put a case on the new 3DS. If you want to protect it from scratches, you can use a skin. There are clear skins if you want to preserve the look of your 3DS. If you want to change things up a bit, you could buy a skin with a design, or design your own. I made this one at If you don't want a full skin, there are some cool decals to be found on ebay and etsy.

If you want a pouch, most made for the older 3ds XL will fit the new one. There are simple ones like this from Hori. It is currently available in all black or with various graphics (Zelda, Mario, NES controller), and it also has room for 6 game cartridges. If you want something fancier, there is the popular city slicker and gear pouch pro from sfbags, or you could get something custom from etsy.

As for screen protectors, the new 3ds xl has the same size screens as the older model, so any screen protectors that fit the old xl will work.

u/smaller_god · 2 pointsr/3DS

This. If you wanna game a bit while you stroll on the treadmill for some post-workout cool-down that's ok.
I've never understood the people that go to the gym and spend the whole time on treadmills, cycles, elliptical.
If you wanna change your body, the free weight area is where you want to be. Get whatever music works for you, and get your head in the game.
That said if you want to keep your 3ds safe, my recommendation would be something from HORI

u/ImReddit · 2 pointsr/3DS

The Hori Line is fantastic. There are mario/zelda themed ones out as well.

I highly recommend.

u/ninja_llama · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Wait but I thought you were looking for 3DS games....?

There are Professor Layton games for DS as well that are really good, if you have one of those. I also LOVE the Phoenix Wright games. They sound kind of boring but they're so much fun, so challenging and absolutely the best games I've ever played. And they also take forever to play so such a good investment. You can get the first one for $20 on Amazon.. It is actually the best game I've ever played (at least on DS) I think.

u/DerfK · 2 pointsr/gaming

The medium is generally called Visual Novels. As story-telling vehicles, they run the range of linear stories with pictures and music to the equivalent of those old D&D "gamebooks" with character sheets and combat systems and if you rolled a 4 turn to page 88. (Though if it goes too far in this direction you'll have purists claiming it's a dating/princess/whatever sim instead of a visual novel.)

Content-wise, just like other novels they can be about pretty much anything, including scraping the bottom of the barrel.

> Are they just cartoon sex simulators for sad pervs

Lots of them are. Porn gets everyone's attention and sex sells (probably should mark this one NSFW), so they're what everyone hears about.

> or is there more to them

Plenty more. Steam's been collecting a few recently, both translated from Japanese and original titles.

As with anything else, Sturgeon's Law applies.

> I've never seen a game like this in a store

Look a little harder :)

u/xoNightshade · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love to have a handheld gaming system again, I haven't had one since the original Game Boy. I also have been wanting to play this game since I heard about it. Lawyer video game > actually studying for the bar. :D Thanks for the contest! Radler is rad.

u/Yokuo · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This technically isn't $10 or less, but I would paypal you $10 to make up the difference. I know that's iffy as far as your rules go, but it doesn't hurt to try, right.

u/arche22 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm still a kid at heart

I think my favorite moment was playing A Link To The Past for the first time and literally staying up all night with paper around me to figure out puzzles (I was only about 12 at the time, they were still hard!).

This one, because I don't have it yet

If I win, used is fine if you want to save some money or pick another winner :D

u/reticentbias · 2 pointsr/gaming

FF tactics is a great one, though it's far inferior to the PSX version.

I can also whole-heartedly recommend Golden Sun, though it's not as deep of an RPG, it's extremely fun. Etrian Odyssey is as hardcore as they come, so it may or may not be your cup of tea. You actually explore and draw your own dungeon maps in it, and the class combinations are nuts.

If you aren't a big fan of JRPGs, you probably won't like The World Ends With You but you'd be doing yourself a great disservice if you skipped it.

There's also Chrono Trigger, which, if you never played it, deserves a chance to be seen. It is definitely an old school JRPG though.

FF3 and FF4 are both great if you like that kind of thing, but if you're not into JRPGs, again, you probably won't enjoy them.

I really loved the most recent Dragon Quest, even though it is decidedly old school and very much a JRPG in the traditional format. But it does a lot of things well, and the class system is deep and rewarding.

Bioware made a Sonic RPG, though I haven't played it so I can't recommend it.

The Castlevania games are all awesome, but they're RPGs like Diablo is an RPG.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/FrankPapageorgio · 2 pointsr/3DS

High price aside... do these things still work with the 3DS?

I remember when I was in college back in 2004 I needed to buy one of these to get my DS connected to WiFi since it was not an authorized device or something like that.

Edit: looks like it does not work with the New 3DS Lineup, but works with the old ones

u/CrazyKyle987 · 2 pointsr/pokemon

Yeah, there are. Although that one is ridiculously expensive, i got mine for $25.00 at toysRus a few years back so i could play animal crossing with my friends (this was before DSi). If you search Ebay im sure you could get one, or even if you go searching around at best buy or walmart you might be able to get one.

u/naruhi · 2 pointsr/3DS

Do you happen to have a n,a,or c router because those are not compatible with the 3DS? You should ask your service provider or look your router up online. Worst case you have to buy this

Ghost Trick

u/RoninShinigami · 2 pointsr/3DS
u/Kuiper · 2 pointsr/gaming

If you're looking for more western-style games, you might like the Mario and Luigi titles. They're riddled with amusing dialog and highly-interactive combat. (It's turn-based, but you can press buttons to dodge or counter-attack when the enemy is attacking.) A lot of people seemed to like Bowser's Inside Story best, although I liked Partner's in Time better. Partner's in Time forces you to use all four face buttons during combat whereas Bowser's Inside Story only uses two face buttons (plus the touch screen and mic for some battles); I think some people may have preferred Bowser's Inside Story for its simpler controls whereas I preferred Partners in Time for the exact opposite reason. That being said, both games are pretty beginner-friendly.

If you're looking for something "BioWare-esque," Devil Survivor might be the closest to what you're looking for. It has a plot with branching story paths, and the decisions you make can impact the flow of the story in very meaningful ways. (There are certain player characters that can permanently die depending on what actions you take.) It's not nearly as nuanced as something from BioWare, but there are still potential endings, and the decisions you make throughout the entire game have a bearing on which ending you can take. The only character that you can fully spec is the main character, but you have complete control over the skills for all of your human units, and a limited amount of control over the stats/skills for your monster units. n.b.: A remake of Devil Survivor is coming out later this year for 3DS, so if you were planning on buying it, you might want to hold off until this summer when the remake comes out. That being said, if you're not sure you want to pay full price and find the original Devil Survivor on sale for $15 or something, you might want to pick it up.

Several comments regarding The World Ends With You: It looks like the game is $16.50 on Amazon if you can't find it locally. I tried playing TWEWY several times and quit before getting more than an hour in simply because of how much I hated the main character. Neku's unbearable nature is intentional. It's difficult to explain why without giving up too much of the plot, but the game gets a lot better, and once I gave it a chance, it managed to hit its stride much faster than I had expected. The game doesn't really start to get fun until you get a nice selection of pins to choose from and have more freedom to explore different areas, but fortunately this all happens within the first hour of gameplay. Also, be aware that some of the pins are terrible and not fun at all to use. The idea is that out of the hundreds of pins that the game offers you, you find maybe a dozen or so that you actually like and play most of the game with those pins. (There are also several pins that are basically clones/upgraded versions of previous pins, which you'll discover when you try them out.) Try everything once to see if you like it, and if not, just move onto the next thing.

u/NowUSeeMeNowU · 2 pointsr/Games

The DS version is the best one to get. Everything from the PS1 version with all the advantages of the SNES version in addition moving all of the menus to the second screen, a fresh translation, an automap, and run enabled by default. It's fucking excellent.

It's also extremely affordable.

u/EphemeralMemory · 2 pointsr/chronotrigger

Theres two things you can do. Download the ROM data or use Amazon.

Here is the Amazon listing for CT on the DS. I'm not giving a link for the ROM data, because CT is a game you should buy. But, you could theoretically use a R4 cartridge with the ROM data and a micro SD. Emulating the game works too.

But seriously: just buy the game.

u/chrono1465 · 2 pointsr/gaming

Event Pokémon are limited time Pokémon and back on the DS I had a gameshark to hack in any event Pokémon that I didn’t have. Some of these event Pokémon caused special things to happen in the games like unlocking the ability to catch the Regi trio in HGSS or Spikey Eared Pichu.

This is more about experiencing something again and realizing that in order to do so with what I have I’d have to literally erase the old saves, not about getting a living dex.

Also in terms of “buy a new copy of old games”, digital ones from Nintendo are one thing, but this is just ridiculous

u/notimeforidiots · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

OH GAMES! I can't decide just one so these two are pretty grool:

  • 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors For DS. It looks so cool. It is the precursor game to the other one, but I read it wasn't 100% necessary to play beforehand. Still looks awesome though!
  • Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward For 3DS! This game got great reviews and just seems so fucking cool. I have been on the hunt for more games like this, but sadly, a lot of them are only sold in/for Japan.

    My favorite game is Touch Detective. I love all of them. I cant wait for the next one! Whenever it actually gets released here that is :( New or used is fine with me! Thanks so much for this contest :) It's an awesome idea!
u/Shortcircuit05 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favourite game is... Skyrim and Bioshock Infinite, both for xBox, and Pokemon SoulSilver for DS

Thanks for the contest!


u/gyrfalcons · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

Hah, I just made a post that was vaguely similar... I'd actually say check it out and see if there are any you haven't played but that sound interesting to you. I'd be really happy to elaborate on the appeal of any of the games on that list that I enjoyed.

The first one I'd say you should give a try is Bow Street Runner, though, which is a surprisingly good flash detective game with a nice historical element to it. The puzzles aren't that difficult but are enjoyable enough, the acting is actually reasonably good, you get to be a detective in Georgian England, and it's just fun.

I'd also say Ghost Trick should be something that you would definitely enjoy. It's basically your brief - a high focus on story and character development, solving puzzles & intrigue, and a bit of a pressure element (difficulty). You can't go wrong here. I loved the shit out of it, and I think you will too. Since you mentioned having a DS, try this!

Also, if you have an Android phone, Layton Brothers: Mystery Room is definitely a must try. It's a series of Locked Room Murders that you have to solve, and it resembles the AA games much more than it does the Layton games in terms of how it goes. The characters are all pretty fun as well, and I really enjoyed this and would strongly recommend it as well.

Edit: I also totally forgot to mention - 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. It's a puzzle/visual novel kind of thing, and I found it very engaging. The plot is definitely sort of a brain twister kind of thing in the 'what even is going on' sense, but everything is explained in a pretty satisfactory way at the end. Definitely consider this one. It's basically Room Escape: The Game, but it does that very well.

u/unjustifiably_angry · 2 pointsr/nintendo

Start with this

Then get this

And never save during an "escape" sequence, only during "story" sequences. There's a bug and it might corrupt your save data.

u/hoppenscooter · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love to get the DS for my mom. When I was a little kid, she would play Pokemon with me all the time and I'd love to play the games with her again. I'd give her my old DS, but sadly mine broke and I had to replace it with a 3DS. I bought a copy of each Pokemon game when I had a job so I don't need any of those. Admittedly selfish of me, I'd like this game for myself.

Edit: I somehow managed to forget that Radler is rad

u/TheDrunKnight · 2 pointsr/gaming

This is as close as you will probably get 😿

u/zombicidalscientist · 1 pointr/gaming

Edit (for the lazy):

  • Professor Layton
  • Phoenix Wright
  • Myst
  • Dear Esther (not really a game)

    Almost anything on the DS is a decent start if you have one. Professor Layton is an amazing series with some great puzzles to keep her thinking. There's no combat and no hard new control schemes to learn. Phoenix Wright is another fantastic series but there is some violence in the sense of "murder-mystery/crime" stuff to set up the cases you take and the puzzles you solve. Again, no combat here, it's exclusively puzzle solving.

    As old as it is, Myst is another great game to show her (I think anyway) that encourages puzzle solving and reading. You can also get it for pretty cheap. Personally, I prefer realMyst because you get to roam freely but the Masterpiece Edition is truer to the original and doesn't force you to use first-person controls.

    If you have a game that uses the Source engine you might want to get Dear Esther for her to look at. It's not so much a game as it is an interactive story told using a first person perspective. There's no combat or anything you simply walk around and explore an island. There's a bit of a ghost story aspect to it but it's not scary at all. It's closer to mysterious. Since TF2 is free you should be able to get Dear Esther to work without buying HL2 or anything like that.

    While I really enjoy Portal and love Portal 2 I don't think they're necessarily good games for people new to gaming. The first-person perspective can be a HUGE barrier to entry especially for people that think of things like Mario when they think of games. Plus, if you're looking for a 'wonderful story' Portal's story doesn't really fit the bill (IMO). It's wonderful in the sense that it has wit and charm and some depth if you want to really over-interpret it but in the end it's a short game about escaping from a test facility.

u/caitykat56 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

HIIII! You told me to enter so here I am!!!!!!

Part 1: I would either choose to play A Final Fantasy Game or a Pokemon game first!

Part 2: Ok I cheated little on this, I have zero(and I mean zero) artistic ability so I asked my wonderful sister(more artistic than me) /u/lee4nn to help me out a bit on this one and I will share if I am to win. Here is her rendition of your request. Here is another picture of it. My camera didn't do it much justice though :(

7 is overrated

You could pick up the Nintendo 3DS Wifi Adapter if you have a connected PC nearby:

u/junkytrunks · 1 pointr/pokemon

One of these?:

Gamestop (yeah, yeah, I know, I know) has them used sometimes.

Ask the kid at the counter. Usually they can check inventory at surrounding stores too. They are getting hard to find though.

u/ST1LL_AL1V3 · 1 pointr/RPI

nintendo products do not play nice with the RPI wireless. I believe the only work around is a USB wifi adapter-ish thing ($99 from nintendo, not sure if there is a cheaper option

Not sure if its really allowed because it acts like a mini wireless router... I think it should be ok because the signal strength is so weak

u/SEJIBAQUI · 1 pointr/pokemon

Nintendo DS systems are fishy about wireless networks. I'd suggest going over to /r/techsupport or a related subreddit, considering this is more about networking than pokemon. I don't know if they still exist, but there's a device called a Wireless USB adapter or something. You plug it into a USB port and it connects to the internet through your computer.

u/LightIytoasted · 1 pointr/gaming

Well, I heard that you can also use Nintendo's USB Wifi connector thingy™ to connect, but you may also consider a cheaper alternative.

u/The_Lost_King · 1 pointr/WritingPrompts

This raving lunatic was dying in my arms. Wait, why is he putting his glasses on my fa....

Where once nothing stood, a blond teenager manifested, his left hand spread over his sick, smiling face, and in his right hand gripped a still smoking gun.

I stammered, "Who the hell ar--"

"You weren't supposed to put the glasses on", the boy sighed, cutting me off, sounding as if I'm nothing more than an inconvenience as his left hand drooped from his face, revealing a bored expression. The gun shifted away from the homeless man to me as I took off.


Ripping through the newly formed crowd I heard that gunshot tear through the air and burrow itself into my back. damn, I thought to myself as warmth overtook my body, and as my vision faded a hand gripped my hair and jerked my face towards theirs.

The boy was kneeling in front of me, the sick smile back on his face. "Well, I'm sorry you died, but you get to play the reapers' game, lucky you", the words tauntingly dripped from his mouth, my senses finally fading away.

For anyone who doesn't know, the reapers' game is a reference to The World Ends With You, a fantastic little known gem from the DS. It's highly recommended.

u/MMMMTOASTY · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I tried so hard to ignore Diablo III, but when I saw a playthrough of the monk in the open beta, I blacked out a few minutes into it. When I came to, I found myself on this page. Unfortunately I don't have enough money at the moment to buy it when it comes out, but I'll definitely be looking forward to playing it when I do.

I understand what you mean about Skyrim though, I've sunk about 30 hours into the game and can't bring myself to play the damn thing anymore (though admittedly, that's probably more gameplay than I could get out of a lot of games these days). There's just too much content and not enough substance in some of these open world games, and for some reason all the decent linear RPGs have been floating over to the mobile market like you said. Just look at some of the JRPGs the DS has to offer, like The World Ends With You (more commonly known as: "The Best Thing Square Enix Has Done In Years") and Radiant Historia (both of which could probably be emulated if you so desired). So yeah, buying a PSP or DS might not be a bad deal.

On an unrelated note, can I ask you a quick question? I haven't played any Zelda games since ALTTP and have been looking to get back into the series for a while now, but can't really decide which one I should jump into. So, between Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Wind Waker, which would you recommend the most?

u/thejesusfish · 1 pointr/gaming

Available and cheap. My apologies if you're not in the US.

u/Gmr_Leon · 1 pointr/truegaming

This is definitely an underutilized mechanic, which is a shame. There are only two other games that spring to mind that use drawing as a means of combat and/or world interaction. In case you're interested, these are:

The Void: An extremely abstract game, but strangely alluring (both in gameplay and world design) to me.

The World Ends With You: You may have already heard about this one. It's way more approachable than The Void, and if you like eclectic J-Pop/Pop music, it's super fun to fight to the music.

Part 1: I'll probably play Chrono Trigger first since I've heard so many great things about this game and I've just been dying to play it.

Part 2: Since my major interactions with Final Fantasy have been through the Kingdom Hearts series, I'm not familiar with Chocobo's. I am, however, familiar with Moogles (but can't draw) so here's a wonderfully terrible drawing of a moogle!

7 is overrated? I haven't played it so I can't judge.

u/conman987 · 1 pointr/gaming

I guess it's not as cheap as a VC game, but I point you towards Chrono Trigger for DS my friend. Pretty much the definitive version of the game too. I bought it way back when, no regrets.

u/Big_Green_Piccolo · 1 pointr/nintendo

Nintendo DS edition is probably the best version. Quick cartridge loading and also contains the anime fmv's from the Playstation 1 version. Best English translation in this version as well. Here's an amazon link. It's $45 there but it's one of the best games of all time.

If that's not obtainable it's on Steam right now. Other versions include SNES (expensive cartridge, like Earthbound), Playstation 1 (paired with a Final Fantasy game). I don't wanna break rule 5 so I'll just say SNES classic edition as well.

u/Neato · 1 pointr/ffxiv

Normal. It came out years ago.

u/raygan · 1 pointr/gamecollecting

Square still produces new copies of Chrono Trigger and it's available new in box for about $20. It's not rare or particularly valuableAmazon has it right now for example:

Amazing game. Every DS fan should have it.

u/insanekoz · 1 pointr/gaming

Way too great of a game to miss. If you don't mind playing games with Super Nintendo graphics (I sure as hell don't) Chrono Trigger will hold up today without any problems, though this is also probably due to the stagnant JPRG archetype. But Chrono Trigger is sooo great. Just pick it up for the DS for like $15 on Amazon.

u/PM_UR_STEAM_KEYS · 1 pointr/3DS

Yes it originally released on snes. Then re-released on ps1, then Nintendo ds. You can still pick up a copy for a reasonable price here on amazon.

u/icemario10 · 1 pointr/GiftofGames

Nintendo ID: 1stinline (Shitty Name I know)

If there was one game I would want (That is Still Avaliable to buy) it would be Chrono Trigger for the DS I never really got a chance to play it when it came out due to being more intrested in things my peers liked such as Mario or Pokemon, now I have to save my money for the next year or so, so I can't just drop $25 until after the holidays when I get some spending money (Hopefully) but I already have some other games on top of my Priority when they come out. anyways Thank hyou OP for doing this and Have yourself a Very, Merry, Fucking Christmas and Thanksgiving as well.

u/Butch_Glitterface · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I already have Lord Of the Rings but they aren't the extended edition. Chrono Trigger is fantasy right? Imladris

u/Aerial_Screw · 1 pointr/gaming

Amazon has them new for like $26 ish I believe.

Here you go

Edit: added link

u/csolisr · 1 pointr/vita

By the way, if you want a portable version with faster load speed and a few extras, and don't mind paying a bit more, you could try the DS version for about $30 with shipping.

Trying to buy a copy of Pokemon Platinum to play since I never played it and it seems really good. Only problem is I don't want to end up with a fake cartridge.

Will these copies be legit or are there fakes here?

Amazon claim to have a "no counterfeit" policy but there are some reviews saying they were sold fakes.

u/muskieratboi · 1 pointr/gaming

Prices (Specific games are imho the best experience..)

Fire Red (Personal Preference, I jsut like charizard lol) (Gen1): Bout $30

Soul Silver (HGSS has the content from Crystal, so they're both largely the same, I just like Lugia more than Ho-Oh lol) (Gen2):$30-$40

Emerald (Content added from Ruby/Sapphire) (Gen3): $35

Platinum (Content Added From Diamond/Pearl) (Gen4): $25

Black and White are your personal preference, pick whichever you'd like.

B2/W2 hits October 7th in the US, Oct 12th in EU, "Late spring" in Australia, in other words, around October 20th.

u/BigAngryIT · 1 pointr/UCSD


Platinum is not going to be cheap.

u/Rickrogue · 1 pointr/3DS

As an older gamer, I thought about this thread last night after commenting. I was thinking about all the great RPGs available on the DS. Nothing wastes time away like a good story RPG. I thought about price and gameplay value. Golden Sun : Dark Dawn is a solid game in the lower price range. More puzzles than the average RPG and the learning curve is not as steep as many other RPGs. Graphics are great for a DS game, and I highly recommend it.

u/runartin · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The most recent thing that made me happy is under NDA, How about...I'm going to see my gf this weekend! :D

This would make me happy,as well :]

u/AWildDorkAppeared · 1 pointr/pokemon

Where are you going with 150 to 200?

SoulSilver is on Amazon for like 50 to 80 dollars used. Don't bother trying to buy it new, you can erase the saved data of someone's previous playthrough by UP+SELECT+B at the start screen.

There are no Gen 1 remakes for the 3DS.

Pick up X or Y, and OmegaRuby or AlphaSapphire. They should satisfy you until Sun/Moon comes out.

u/sonoftzu · 1 pointr/pokemon
u/irisflame · 1 pointr/gaming $310!?!? FUCK. I've been needing to get a new SoulSilver for a while because I accidentally fucked mine up D:

u/chumly143 · 1 pointr/Flipping

Is the one example I can think of that makes me foam at the mouth

u/jandkas · 1 pointr/ShouldIbuythisgame

OP, I do have to mention that usually Nintendo games in general don't lose value, when they become out of print. In fact sometimes they go up, like with the Pokemon games (Heart Gold is 294.99!!! on Amazon right now,

There's no issues you have to deal with a used Wii U, since if you can just erase the system data once you get it and make your own nintendo ID account. If you get it refurbished from Nintendo's website, then it's probably already done for you, and from what I've heard it runs well since when they're refurbishing they replace most of the components with new replacements anyway.

Sadly titles on the Wii U, don't go for sale frequently at least not first party. Usually Capcom, and others are good for digital sales, I think they had Monster Hunter 3U for the Wii U on sale recently for 13.59. You usually have to look to retail for better prices on older games, such as Super Mario World 3D(which imo is the best 3D mario game as of now) is selling for $20 through the Nintendo selects program. (

Wind Waker HD is also cheaper than it was when it was first released, because it's now part of the Nintendo Selects program, so it goes for $20. (

u/Ranik2k · 1 pointr/PokemonPlaza

Heart Gold for sale on Amazon $134.99!!!

Used Pre-owned copies are $45 (That's more than X/Y Cost new, or OR/AS new)

u/Anshin · 1 pointr/Games

Well amazon seems to have them for over 200 flipping dollars

u/Hunteazy · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love RAOA because all of the people on here are genuine and nice. It's such an amazing thing to see such awesome people online!

I think this Pokemon Heart Gold is a perfect example of something gold!

Can I Haz Gold? :D

u/IronElephant · 1 pointr/patientgamers

Just checked.

Current prices from Amazon US and ebay US in USD. Summer 2016.

[Y Version]( and Omega Ruby are roughly the same price as when they launched at $39.99. If anything they're a few dollars cheaper due to slight age and price fluctuation.

But a game like Black Version 2 is about $60 new and $45 used. It is a last gen game and no longer in production.

And finally the worst example, and the game that many people want to play, is the English version of HeartGold and SoulSilver. Price fluctuates around $100 for new and used English games.

Amazon /// ebay

Japanese imported versions are much cheaper, $30 on Amazon. Sadly, only the current gen of Pokemon Games has language options. For the other 5 generations you need to buy the game in your language; or learn Japanese.

u/PokemonFan99 · 1 pointr/pokemon

though looks like the price went up to £40 since i bought it, some of the 2nd hand ones are cheap though

u/Scoonz · 1 pointr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

Seriously? I guess they want people to buy the newer versions of the game. I mean, it is two years old, and they release them every year right? I think.

u/FilmNerdasaurus · 1 pointr/gaming

Well they tested the product to see if it had scratches so technically it was "carefully tested". Their definition is different then some of the consumers defintion.

It obviously sucks for OP but the policy does allow him to get his money back or the right version of the game he wanted.

You know I was going to also bring up that maybe OP's parents should have just bought new, but one quick google search and this the first result I could buy a copy on I see why they bought used.

u/Moose1-1 · 1 pointr/pokemon


u/WafflesGaming · 1 pointr/pokemon

Thanks. I guess I'll just have to buckle down, save up, and find one somewhere used.

Also, yep, some sellers on Amazon are selling it for $290 to $380

u/zealousear · 1 pointr/Pokemonexchange

Ok so, I wasn't familiar with the price so I decided to do a little research.

The lowest price on Amazon (for used) is $67, but that's with the Pokewalker and I feel it's overpriced.

So, can you do $35 + shipping?

u/Nebulance · 1 pointr/3DS

Here's a similar case I have that fits my N3DS XL perfectly with 3 game slots on it. Seems very well made for only 12$

u/DeffingAllTheDeffies · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I have a Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds 3DS XL with a bunch of games. Pokemon X, The legend of zelda game it came with and the Monster Hunter game, along with a bunch of DSI-ware games and I'm sure I have some more 3DS games, but I can't remember which ones to be honest, I'm not home right now.

The 3DS XL it's self is BRAND new. As in I've never played a game on it. I broke my first 3DS XL because I was trying to swap the shell and I'm dumb. I bought the LOZ one and just never touched it. Have original box, and this case. I'm selling it for $325, but I'm willing to negotiate.

u/doyouwantaballoon · 1 pointr/3DS

Ooooooh that one! I got it on Amazon also. It's actually a Dsi XL case but it fits the 3DS XL perfectly. Even with the clear Hori duraflex protector. Here you go.

u/FoxxyRin · 1 pointr/3DS

Personally, I use this case. It looks sophisticated and more for an adult gamer, without adding to the bullets that have been aiming right at my wallet lately. Fits into my purse and just looks like a planner/contact book that used to be popular back before everything went in phones. However, it has a magnetic closure and my old XL has a dead pixel. I doubt the magnets were strong enough to cause it, but just in case, I snagged this Pull&Go Folio on eBay. It's a case I've wanted for a long while, but they stopped making them by the time I bought my XL. (And yes, it's supposed to fit the XL just fine -- so it should hopefully fit the nXL just fine as well.)

u/WompWomp187 · 1 pointr/3DS
u/PandiReddits · 1 pointr/3DS

I've got this one

u/Kenigs · 1 pointr/3DS

That case definitely seems rugged but a bit too bulky for the bags I use to travel when I'm out, but definitely looks like a good choice for a carrying case.

I used to use this DSi XL Leather Case and it worked really well and was compact, I only stopped using it because I just made backups of my games onto my 3DS so I didn't have a need to have a carrying case.

u/Zeretha · 1 pointr/3DS

Pretty much any starter kit is just cheap crap. I'd advise you to just spend a little extra and buy quality.

Styli. Basically the only spare bulk pack available at the moment, hence the long shipping wait.

Car charger I would instead buy either a portable power bank and 3DS USB cable or a USB car charger like this and a 3DS USB cable. A power bank would be a good bit more expensive but is really nice to have if you have a lot of electronics you bring with you. Here's a pretty good one.

Great card case holder.

Budget but good carrying cases: 1, 2, 3, 4.

Yes, its more expensive to go this route. But I promise you that you will be happy you did. I bought those crappy starter kits for my GBC, GBA, and DS. The stuff was low quality and generally just doesn't last. I bought stuff for my 3DS similar to what I've linked here and have been much happier with the quality and make

u/Stormcrow426 · 1 pointr/3DS

I too use a combo of a wallet and game case.

Wallet -

Case -

I went with a smaller 6 game case so that it would not be bulky in my pocket :D

u/Dirtrider2040 · 1 pointr/nintendo

I'll keep that in mind!

This is actually the case I was looking at getting:

I have one already for my current 3DS XL and I love the look of it and it has a little bit of extra space on the sides so I think it might actually end up working!

u/Darth_Moose · 1 pointr/3DS

I have this case and I really like it. It does the job well, and it's REALLY cheap.

u/spExeh · 1 pointr/3DS

This is currently my top choice, so if anyone has it and would like to weight in, I would really appreciate it.

u/Airmaid · 1 pointr/3DS

The reprinted one with the new cover is on Amazon for only $20. This one says it's Volume 1 of the Zero Escape series, and imo, looks better. The other one has a cover of the group, but the games are exactly the same. No new/removed content on the newest printing.

u/Zombieuserhay · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/Amblerance · 1 pointr/nintendo

999: 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors

Love this game to bits but you have to like mystery/visual novel type games. There is a LOT of reading, it's literally dispersed into puzzle and novel portions, but if you want to experience a story that'll blow your goddamn mind I totally recommend it.

More games like this that are heavily story/puzzle based:

Ace Attorney series

Hotel Dusk

Ghost Trick

These are all pretty hard to find in stores but most of them are pretty cheap on amazon right now. ghost trick ,999, hotel dusk

u/Porkpants81 · 1 pointr/3DS

u/nickehl · 1 pointr/gaming

Not sure what style of games you like, but if you're into Pokemon, you may like RPG-style games as well. I suggest you check out:

  • Dragon Quest IX - Man what a great game. I probably dropped 120 hours into this one (though it's possible to beat in far less time, there's just a TON of side quests)

  • Radient Historia - Another awesome game with old school appeal and new trick to keep you from getting bored. Considered by many DS RPG fans to be the spiritual successor to Chrono Trigger.

  • Retro Game Challenge - If you are a late 20's - early 30's gamer or you just like old school gaming style, this game will be amazing for you. I loved it!

  • Disgaea DS - I will forewarn you about this game. If you like the collection aspect of Pokemon, you will get LOST in this. I must have over 200 hours in it and I easily could have put another 800 (no joke) getting my characters to level 9999 (yup, it's possible)

    Anyhow, those are my faves. There are so many others to list, but those four alone would keep you busy for years
u/esoomenona · 1 pointr/gaming


I ordered this earlier in the month, and just got notification that it shipped.

u/EdenSB · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think you would enjoy this DS game. I've heard it's a good RPG.

Also, you can use them by making a US iTunes account. That's how I get English language applications. It can be hard to get iTunes codes though and they don't accept non-US cards.


u/Armeggadon · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

For me, I like having both, digital for games I know I'm going to play for a long time, want to come back to later, or generally just expect to always want to be available (monster hunter, pokemon, probably disgaea) but then carts for everything else. I also never plan on carrying around my switch without a carrying case, and it looks like every case so far has room for several carts, or even a card case. With my 3ds, I have a case that holds 12 game carts and is pretty small, it fits right in the carrying case with my 3ds, so I don't ever have to worry about it. I expect cases like that to come around for the switch as well (the one I use is basically except just 1 row, not 2 but I can't find it anymore) and those fit inside system carrying cases pretty easily

u/Krusiv · 1 pointr/MonsterHunter

That is interesting. Since it fits 2 3DSXL, do you think it'll fit a normal 3DS + something like this? That would be very convenient for me.

u/r4ge4holic · 1 pointr/lifehacks

It's literally called a 3DS Game Case.

Nintendo 3DS Game Card Case 24 - Black

u/unnamed_elder_entity · 1 pointr/3DS

I don't have a better recommendation than the other link for a collection that large. But I can say, don't buy those 8 or 16 game cases that are available at Best Buy or Target. They're a huge pain in the ass to get the cartridges in and out of. The elastic band type that you slide the cartridge into are much easier to manage. The only snap in type that seems to work well is the official HORI 24 game case. I have a couple of those for storing stuff long term. Games I actively play are in the elastic style holders.

Another advantage of the elastics- they also hold DS and Switch and Vita too.

u/pretenderist · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I feel like it would be best to get things like this for Switch and this for 3ds and just put it in a generic backpack/messenger bag/purse/whatever.

u/ebudd08 · 1 pointr/gamecollecting

I keep all my DS games in a couple cases like these. I have all the original cases/artwork/manuals/inserts just stored in totes in the basement, but still want easy access to the games.

u/salvu667 · 1 pointr/3DS

You can get a cartridge case on Amazon for like $10

And a carrying case to put your console in for like $8

This is what I use. It fits a 3ds xl, game case and a charger in the main compartment. It also has a few zipper pockets that can fit smaller objects like a screen wipe or a few extra stylus.

u/mishugashu · 1 pointr/3DS

> You could also try just taking one game in the system around rather then all the cartridges.

Yeah, that's what I'm doing now, but it sucks when I whip it out and find I had the wrong game in there. I was thinking maybe a separate case that is also pocketable... or I usually have my messenger bag with me, as well, so it could be put in there with ease as well. Just shoving 4 or 5 different 3DS cases in there is not really an option.

I was thinking of getting this: This way it'll take the place of 1 case, rather than 1 per game, and still be fairly portable.

edit: 10 coins short of the case. :\

double edit: woo, found a game I hadn't registered yet. I think this is definitely a good way to go, considering it's basically free.

triple edit: Orrrr, spend only $10 to get a bigger case and use the coins to buy games and whatnot.... ugh, this is why I posted here in the first place. I just don't know what's good.

u/warelecmon · 1 pointr/nintendo

I use the Hori case, which holds 24. Fits DS and 3DS and comes with one little piece of plastic that holds an SD card. That's removable though. They have a couple of colors and also make them for Switch games.

u/KalN7 · 1 pointr/3DS

I believe it's this one -

It's a great case and it does the job. Holds 3DS and DS games securely and they're not difficult to remove. But after seeing those cool club nintendo cases I want one.

And if you're asking about the console case, it's this one -

My XL fits pretty snug in it and it holds up to 8 games. I like it, but I'll probably purchase a case that's more plain and less bulky down the road.

I have that exact same style for my old NDS (before the 3DS) games. Oh the amount of times I've nearly cut myself on it since none of the sides give much... The old NDS style cases of the same design that I have have the opposite issue where it's hard as balls to get them in, and difficult to get them out without being afraid you're going to snap the gamecard!

If you can't afford to get a different case atm, the only tip I can give is to first slide in the side of the card to the outer side wall under the hook and then try to lever the middle side into the other clip. Hopefully the outer wall of plastic will give just enough to allow you to get the game card in. Just... Don't be a total dingus like me and draw blood on the hook when the card finally snaps in hard...

If you can afford to get a different game case, I heartily recommend the case that u/trippybrii linked: the HORI 24 game card case. That one has MUCH more flexible tabs in the middle so the best way to get the games in and out is to instead angle the game card into the MIDDLE of the page under the hook, then press sideways against the middle of the page into the hook and lever the game in under the outer hook and release. It's much easier to access the games!

If you're planning on getting more games, [this] ( is my favorite way to store them! :) I've tried several, and this one doesn't seem to hold my cartridges tightly enough to damage them.

u/AlanBeforeTime · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favorite game is Uncharted 2:Among Theives

Mario because this game looks awesome

Get a real life, Nerd! I know I should but its just to much fun being one.

Having not played a Pokemon game since Leaf Green (jeez that makes me feel old) I would love Pokemon black version 2. You also mentioned tabletop games This one I wanted for my birthday last month but was out of stock so I wasn't able to get it.

This thing can do it, so it might actually be possible.

HORI Retro Mario Hard Pouch for NEW 3DS XL and Nintendo 3DS XL

u/mr_nicks · 1 pointr/3DS

I usually have my N3DS XL inside a Hori Retro Mario Hard Pouch. I can't complain at all about it.

u/D-o-Double-B-s · 1 pointr/3DS

I have a N3DSXL and use This Case... understandably you probably wont want link but my SO has the pikachu version... anyways I can fit my N3DSXL, 6 carts, and my USB wire in the case nicely... though I have a travel Port in my backpack at all time for charging cell phones, ipads, and my 3ds when needed

Edit: oops... didnt mean for the bot to show up

u/Lyianx · 1 pointr/zelda

I didnt care for that one to be honest. I went with this one.

u/voneahhh · 1 pointr/3DS

Or you can get one of these and protect the 3DS along with pockets for 6 carts.

Hori Retro Zelda Hard Pouch for New 3DS XL and Nintendo 3DS XL

u/Cypress85 · 1 pointr/3DS

Luigi 3ds xl Hori case

Holds 6 games, has a strap to hold the 3ds in place, and will fit a 3ds with a clear shell. There are other styles, too, such as zelda.

Original LoZ Hori case

u/kaylejoy · 1 pointr/3DS

This one does if that's what you were looking for.

u/MHzBurglar · 1 pointr/zelda

To be honest, I like this one better (though it's not MM specific)

I'm surprised either can still be found after the MMN3DSXL situation...

u/fucks_with_his_dog · 1 pointr/3DS

Are you referring to this? I was looking at that case, I think its minimal but still nicely styled. Does it work well for you? No issues?

u/D-TOX_88 · 1 pointr/nintendo

I use a Hori clear duraflexi NN3DS case with my Majora's Mask 3DS, and I keep it in Hori's retro Zelda zipper case. The duraflexi slips on and off real easy and cleans really easy, and it shows off the MM paint job really well. I also got a Hori screen protector, and if it gets scratched too much I just replace it; doesn't leave any residue. Hori makes good shit.


Zelda case:

u/blinkfandangoii · 1 pointr/nintendo

They are $17 at Amazon:

It is OOS right now, but I ordered mine when it was OOS and got it within two weeks. They are really nice.

u/RegularWhiteShark · 1 pointr/3DS

I got my NN3DS XL at the end of March for my 23rd birthday, and it still looks as good as new. Absolutely no marks or scratches, etc. It's had screen protectors since pretty much day 1, and this case protects the shell. I also keep it in this case when not in use. I use a microfiber cloth to clean the screens when I change the screen protectors (only done that once so far).

u/poopnuts · 1 pointr/3DS

It doesn't look like my exact case is available anymore but it's very similar to this. The case is made for the XL but just slip the smaller N3DS under the elastic strap and it doesn't move around at all.

u/sendingsignal · 1 pointr/nintendo

That sounds like the one that looked just like the one I got from best buy:
this one:

but it looks like there are a few differences - 3 more games, one strap vs 2. Does it feel kind of hard to get it out and is it a little difficult to zip up with it in? maybe that 10 dollars difference is worth it.

u/DrewReaLee · 1 pointr/3DS

How hard of a hardshell are you looking for? I bought Hori Hard Pouch case for my New 3DS XL off Amazon and I've been quite impressed by it.

u/Averious · 0 pointsr/pokemon

You could get one of these

u/rockincellist · 0 pointsr/3DS

You're right in the initial period when Nintendo is still making the game. But what happens when the game goes out of print and the game becomes rarer as people buy up the remaining copies?

Pokemon Platinum, being sold by a seller that's not Nintendo.

Because of it rarity, the game is worth a lot more new than it did when it launched. Supply and demand.

Additionally, look at the used game prices for games at Gamestop. Nintendo doesn't set those prices but Gamestop does because they know how valuable Nintendo games are. They know they can sell you a copy of Pokemon Pearl for $30 or Xenoblade for $80. Sure, it might be unreasonable, but prices are set that way because people buy them for that price.

u/chazwhiz · 0 pointsr/gaming

Thanks, I love a good JRPG, I may have to track down a copy!

Edit: I notice there's a DS sequel - any opinion there? Start with the original or is the current gen on par?

u/TheAmazingSkoof · 0 pointsr/gaming

And Pokemon has almost doubled in price. Pokemon Soul Silver/Heart Gold are now $80.

I got mine for $35 with the pokewalker and everything. now the pokewalker alone is $35.

Edit: Oh, and someone is trying to sell a pokemon GC game for $10,000.

Double edit: Really people? Two downvotes simply for stating the facts <.<

u/vernm51 · 0 pointsr/gaming

Unfortunately a new copy of Pokemon HeartGold will run you over three times as much these days :(

u/mkvaladez · -1 pointsr/3DSdeals

It sells for 19.99 normally that's not a good deal at all. It's currently under $19 on Amazon.

Edit for the idiots down voting me. $19.99 is the msrp of the game. Anything over that is not a good deal.
