3DS xl System overview

By: Daisymare Sep 2, 2012 | 3 Comments

90% bigger screen, nicer design, better feel in hand but what's not perfect with this new version of the 3DS? Well there are a couple issues I've noticed but I'm not sure if they matter to the hardcore gamer.

Pros

  • Bigger screens
  • Nice feel in the hands
  • Awesome for playing DS games
  • Quick and responsive
  • Price is good
  • Controls are good and touch screen is nice.

Cons

  • 3D isn't as good as I'd like on the bigger screen
  • 3D video recording is blurry and hard to look at
  • 3D photos are hit and miss
  • Built in games suck 
  • Size and weight wears on the wrists.
  • Doesn't come with any 3DS games
  • Wi-Fi doesn't seem to connect with the net.

If you don't have a DS or a 3DS then I recommend this system but I don't think it's that much better than the others.

Buy It.

Below is a detailed editorial of my impressions of the system. Yes most of this is known on the standard 3DS so you may not get much insight on the system other than the physical layout and feel in the hand.

Physical body of the system:

First off, the system design and shape is pretty good with rounded corners that fit nice in the hand though the size and weight of it can be fatiguing to your wrists.

 

 

The color choices are okay, sort of like an homage to the old pokemon blue and red. It sort of makes me think of a male female color palette though.

Once you open the system you are treated to a nice layout with direction tab, analog nub, X,Y,B,A buttons and Select, Home, Start buttons at the bottom of the touch screen. The power button and lights in the lower Right corner of the control face. The R and L buttons are where they should be, volume on the left and Wi-Fi & SD card slot on the right.

On the display screen panel you have two weak speakers which I feel are not useful unless you’re in a very quiet place on the right is the 3D slider switch and the two cameras are on the back. 

They changed the charger plug again making it look more like a large compact USB port. I’m wondering if they are planning to do other things with it.

 

 

The new stylus is nice and easy to use and fits nicely in the system.

It has a mic on the lower right of the touch screen and possibly one on the back of the display screen next to the two cameras

 

Firmware OS & built in Apps:

 

The OS boots up nice and quick and all the controls from the touch screen to the directional pad and buttons respond nicely.

Everything in the OS and the built in Apps run in 3D as expected and has the same Apps as in the normal 3DS. That said there are a few issues I’m having with this version of the 3DS that I didn’t see in the regular one.

The display screen is beautiful in 2D but the 3D is a little off. I think the larger the display the harder it is for your eyes to adjust. You have to hold the system farther away to get a similar 3D effect to the standard 3DS thus making the screen look smaller anyway. In 2D mode however, this system is a joy. I’m playing Chrono Trigger right now and having a blast.

The Camera App is fun and the camera itself takes okay pictures though in 3D it’s really hit or miss as to how 3D it will look. 3D video is pretty useless and hurts my eyes. You can do some fun things with it though. Running the video backwards and changing the audio pitch. All of which I believe is in the original version.

The Sound App has a few fun little Bird mimicking functions and lets you record hours of audio on your SD card. You can edit the audio by slowing it down speeding it up and changing pitch. It also has a couple of effects settings for parakeet and others.

There’s the Mii Maker, Mii Plaza for StreetPass, the eShop and other crap.

It comes with a video sample called Dinosaur Office that is cool to watch but is short and pointless.

I couldn’t get it to connect to my Wi-Fi so I couldn’t use Nintendo Zone or Download Play. I don’t know why it wont connect either. It says that it connects but then just gives errors.

The AR games look cool but like with the camera App the 3D is spotty especially when you’re moving the system around.

Face Raiders and the same issues as above.

I find it funny that the 3DS xl Operations manual is heavier than the system itself. At 314 pages long it’s a freaking novel of an instruction manual.

 

 

I haven’t yet had a chance to try an actual 3DS game on it because it doesn’t come with any.

Bigga 3DS DennaMutha - XL Version Coming to the US in August

By: goukijones Jun 22, 2012 | 4 Comments | Updated: Jun 22, 2012

Well this is great news for blind Jimmys. Nintendo announces today that a larger version of the 3DS is official. It's called the 3DS XL.

POW!

It's big now. I'm thrilled about this. Maybe now I can get into some Mario Kart. Here's the details from Nintendo.

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A big year for the Nintendo 3DS system is about to get even bigger. In a Nintendo Direct video on June 21, Nintendo revealed plans to launch Nintendo 3DS XL, a new version of Nintendo 3DS with 90 percent larger screens. When it becomes available across North America on Aug. 19 at a suggested retail price of $199.99, the new system will create even more immersive entertainment experiences for users, delivering a wealth of games and video content that can be enjoyed on the go.

“No other hand-held entertainment experience compares to the fun of Nintendo 3DS”
Nintendo 3DS XL features an updated form factor and will be available in Red or Blue. The new system’s battery life outperforms that of the original Nintendo 3DS, and it comes bundled with a 4 GB SD card, which owners can use to store content such as downloadable games and videos from the Nintendo eShop. Nintendo 3DS XL launches on Aug. 19, the same day as New Super Mario Bros. 2, a new installment in the fan-favorite Mario game series.

“No other hand-held entertainment experience compares to the fun of Nintendo 3DS,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “With the launch of Nintendo 3DS XL on Aug. 19, consumers will be able to enjoy the great lineup of current and upcoming games on an even grander scale. Plus, Nintendo 3DS XL gives owners even more real estate on their screens to enjoy entertainment applications like Nintendo Video and Netflix.”

Editorial: Giving Nintendo a Second Chance (Plus 3DS Unboxing)

By: jalexbrown Nov 24, 2011 | 3 Comments

Jalexbrown discusses his giving Nintendo a second chance with the 3DS.

I must admit something: I went into this whole thing with an extreme bias against Nintendo.  My Wii was a huge waste of money; my DS was decent, I guess, but it didn't blow me away like I expected.  But one thing surprised me, and that's that it did hurt when it decided to break.  So, I thought with a lack of enthusiasm, now's as good a time as any to check out the 3DS.  It's sort of the DS but with less games, crappier games, and a headache-inducing gimmick.  Goody.  I wasn't really convinced that I should get one until I saw a sale at Target selling them for $145; the deal was sealed, and I bought a 3DS.

Now that I have the 3DS, I struggle with being skeptically optimistic about its future - which is completely unfounded but shuddup and let me pretend my money wasn't wasted.  Snake Eater and Resident Evil Revelations should be awesome, and I can't wait to find a copy of Devil Survivor Overclocked.  I bought Ocarina of Time 3D, although at the time of this writing I haven't had any time to play it yet.  And I got Legend of Zelda: Four Swords as a free download, so that's kind of cool.

I suspect how nice retail is the 3DS this holiday season will have a huge impact on how much developer support we see over the next year in terms of AAA releases.  Right now the 3DS library is pretty slim pickins, and I suspect right now a lot of developers are putting off to see how well this price drop plays out of the holiday season before they invest too much in a 3DS game.  Really what I want to see is what Nintendo's going to do with it.  Will we get a new 3DS Zelda game?  Metroid?  Donkey Kong?  Super Smash Brothers?  How about a freaking Earthbound sequel already?  Maybe try something new like you did with Eternal Darkness and Geist?  The possibilities are endless.  Who knows...maybe the 3DS will end up being worth it after all.

Rumor: Wal-mart might drop the 3DS price early

By: Phresh Aug 5, 2011 | 4 Comments

A rumor circulating the net reports that Wal-mart will drop the price of the 3DS three days earlier than expected.

Wal-mart is supposedly going to drop the price of the Nintendo 3DS on August 9th, three days earlier then the official date of August 12th. What this means is that anyone who picks up the system on the 9th through the 11th can get the price reduction and still qualify for the Ambassador's program that Nintendo has announced. Also, if they release an ad or something, you might be able to get a price match at a preferred retailer if you want, basically being able to choose if you want to buy at Best Buy or whereever if you want points for rewards programs.

Here's the source. All the guy says is that he has a trusted source, but apparently he's held in high regard by his peers.

I honestly hope that it is either false, or if it is true, Nintendo does something about it. I know it's not very "bro-status" of me to think like this but I paid full price on day 1 and I don't like the idea of all these people getting two bonuses instead of the one bonus that all the people who've already paid full price are going to get. Anyway, that's how I feel about the situation.

This just in: Nintendo 3DS Price Drop effective August 12, 2011 for a new unbelievable low price. Is this a good thing or were early adapters just totally ripped off.

I'm totally disappointed that there is going to be almost a $100 price drop on the Nintendo 3DS in less than 6 months. We got a launch system with Street Fighter IV, that was the only decent launch title. Then we got Zelda and Transformers recently. You know how that Transformers game went. Jimmy loves the Zelda, don't get me wrong, but shit, we could have wait for August to play the Zelda. Here's the press release.

Nintendo 3DS Price Drops to $169.99, as Great Value and New 3D Games Come Together

Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Kid Icarus: Uprising Prep Nintendo 3DS for a Strong Holiday Season

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo of America today announced plans to drop the suggested retail price of its portable Nintendo 3DS™ system to $169.99 in the United States, as new games based on some of the world’s most beloved video game franchises head to the system. The new price, down from the suggested launch price of $249.99 and effective Aug. 12, makes an outstanding value even better and sets up a strong holiday season for the system.

“For anyone who was on the fence about buying a Nintendo 3DS, this is a huge motivation to buy now,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “We are giving shoppers every incentive to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, from an amazing new price to a rapid-fire succession of great games.”

Nintendo 3DS has the strongest software lineup of any video game system this holiday season and the new price now opens up the glasses-free 3D experience to many more consumers. Building on the popularity of The Legend of Zelda™: Ocarina of Time™ 3D, which launched June 19, the upcoming game calendar is a Who’s Who of iconic video game franchises. Star Fox 64™ 3D arrives on Sept. 9, followed by Super Mario™ 3D Land in November, Mario Kart™ 7 in December and Kid Icarus™: Uprising during the holiday season.

In addition to great games, Nintendo 3DS has a host of attractive features* that make it the must-have video game system this season:

  • The new Nintendo Video™ service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood.
  • A free application allows Netflix members with unlimited streaming plans to instantly watch TV episodes and movies streaming from Netflix.
  • The Nintendo eShop is a digital store for Nintendo 3DS owners that provides access to a wide variety of downloadable content, such as original 3D software, classic games that have been re-mastered in 3D called 3D Classics, Game Boy™ and Game Boy Color “Virtual Console” games in their original 2D glory, and more than 350 Nintendo DSiWare™ games. Visitors can also view video game trailers, screen shots and product information for games, including those available at retail locations.
  • Since Nintendo 3DS launched in the United States on March 27, more than 830,000 people in the U.S. alone have purchased one to enjoy 3D visuals without the need for special glasses. These Nintendo 3DS owners represent some of Nintendo’s most loyal customers, and Nintendo is rewarding them for getting in on the action early with 20 free downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop.

These free games are available to anyone who owns a Nintendo 3DS system and uses a wireless broadband Internet signal to connect to the Nintendo eShop at least once before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11. These users will automatically be registered in the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador program. The program contains two elements:

  1. Starting Sept. 1, Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors will be able to download 10 NES™ Virtual Console™ games at no charge and before they are available in the Nintendo eShop to the general public. These games, including Super Mario Bros.™, Donkey Kong Jr.™, Balloon Fight™, Ice Climber™ and The Legend of Zelda™, are slated to become paid downloadable games, but Ambassadors get them early for free. Once the paid versions of the games are posted to the Nintendo eShop later in the year, the updated versions will be available to Ambassadors for download at no cost.
  2. By the end of 2011, Nintendo will provide Ambassadors with 10 Game Boy Advance Virtual Console games. These include games like Yoshi’s Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3, Mario Kart™: Super Circuit, Metroid™ Fusion, WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$ and Mario vs. Donkey Kong™. These games will be available exclusively to Ambassadors, and Nintendo currently has no plans to make these 10 games available to the general public on the Nintendo 3DS in the future.

More details about this program will be announced in the future.

Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

*Some features require a broadband Internet connection.

My Top 5 Most anticipated 3DS games

By: grey walrus Apr 24, 2011 | 5 Comments

With all of the great games announced for the 3DS it was hard to narrow the list down to the top five, but here they are.

The Nintendo 3DS is a phenomanal system that has the capacity to be the best handheld made so far. Then only thing it's lacking from lauch is a set of really great games, but don't worry about that. They're on their way. 

 

NUMBER 5:

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II

When I first got Blazblue for my 360 I couldn't get enough of it. I 1000/100- the achievements in about a week and a half and kept playing pretty regularly until about September of 2010. I got tired of waiting for the new character Valkenhayn to come out, and you may have seen my stories posted about him if you've been around Gouki.com for long enough. The game is fantastic and I'd probably still pick it up and play the console version from time to time if they weren't going to completely alter my mains playstyle when Continuum Shift 2 comes out. If I don't play the console version anymore the least I can do is pick up the portable verstion and support AKSYS. 

With the 3DS's graphical capabilities I'm sure the sprites will look fantastic. Much better than that piece of garbage port they put on the PSP of the first one. 

 

NUMBER 4:

StarFox 64 3D

Having grown up without a Nintendo 64 I missed out on a lot of its gems the first time around, and this was one of them. I did get to play this game eventually and it's fantastic. With the 3DS version I'm sure they'll add in a save function though and I won't have to beat the entire game in one sitting. With the upgraded visuals and the 3D effects making me feel like I'm actually in an interstellar dog fight, this game should be one of the great titles of the console. Just as long as they don't change the cheesy voice acting. It's part of what made this game great in the first place.

 

NUMBER 3:

Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater

Hideo Kojima is a freaking genius. He can come up with the best and most convaluted storylines you've ever heard, but damn does he make it awesome. I love the MGS franchise, and if I had to pick one for them to put on the 3DS it would probably be Twin Snakes. But I'm not going to complain if what I get is Snake Eater. Since chronologically Snake Eater comes before Twin Snakes maybe we'll see a 3D remake of all three original games. The comparison screenshots between the 3DS and the ps2 version are astounding. The ps2 version looks like they took the 3DS version, ate it, and crapped it out the other end before selling it. If you're a fan of MGS this is going to be a must buy.

 

NUMBER 2:

Tales of the Abyss

Tales of the Abyss is a ps2 game that I never got the chance to play, but being a huge fan of the Tales series it's one I really wanna check out. They're not doing anything fancy with this game though. It's more of a port than a remake with the same graphics as the ps2 version, but I'll take it. Tales of Vesperia has been my favorite tales game so far, but I've heard that this one is even better. I'll have to wait and see for myself, but it hasn't even been confirmed to be comig statestide yet. I guess we'll have to wait and see, but if it does make it over here you can bet I'll be getting it day  one. 

And the moment you read all this way for...........

 

 

NUMBER 1:

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

I've always been a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda even since I was a wee lad. I used to play A Link to the Past every day after school on my SNES. But as I stated before I never had a Nintendo 64 growing up and I missed out on this game for a long time. It was only about 5 years or so ago that I actually got to play Ocarina of Time, and it was instantly turned into my favorite Zelda game of all time. It's a got a charm about it. All of the characters, environments, and sounds come together to make an unforgettable moment in time. You've got the Goro's and the Zoras. You've got the frustating water temple. You've got Navi's annoying as voice yelling at you every 5 seconds. You've got amazing bosses and a great story. At least in my opinion. It may be a "remake" of a Link to the Past, but you know what? A link to the past was good, but Ocarina of Time made it better. When this game comes out it will be getting a TON of playtime. Not to mention it comes out on my birthday, June 19th. Which just makes this releast all the more better.

 

Even though everygame on my list is a remake or a port of some other game I am still excited for some of the original games coming out for the 3DS. They just didn't make the top 5 list. Paper mario, Mario Kart 3D, Super mario 3D, Kid Icarus: uprising, and Kirby 3D are all going to be great. And that's just what's been announced so far. If support for the 3DS stays this good I'm not going to have to worry about having a good portable game until the new handhelds come out in 2018. Give or take.

This is for my Street Fighter 3DS giveaway contest

By: fnjimmy Apr 22, 2011 | 6 Comments

I want to have 5 games for sure.

I want to play the Zeldas so that would be number one. Any WWE game would be cool, like a 3d arena adventure. Megaman would be cool. Cool to see him run around my house and shoot things. Use the camera and my face on Megaman. There's not enough zombie games for 3ds and I think a cod zombie game would be the shit. Finally my number one game is Kindgom Hearts, every system need this game. C'mon Kingdom Hearts III!

FnJimmy unboxes the Nintendo 3DS right before your eyes. No Spanish required for this viewing. AR cards? Trading cards or something right? FnJimmy does not dissapoint with this detailed video.

After we got it up and running, I went straight for the AR cards. Unlike Jimmy, I knew exactly what they did. It started out pretty simple, just shooting some targets that popped up on the kitchen table. Then a dragon comes out of the table and I jump out my seat. Next thing you know I'm circling the kitchen table shooting at the dragon. Awesome stuff, I can't wait to see what they do with the AR cards in the future.

The 3D camera is also sweet. The 3D doesn't translate at all here, but look at the pretty stars.

These effects are created by blowing your 3DS.

Here is the now classic FnJimmy and GoukiJones mixed grill picture.

You can also take 3D shots of your Mii and other Nintendo characters that are included with the 3DS AR cards.

That's Pikmin mofo! What do you mean you don't know what that is. One of the best games from the GameCube era.  

The 3DS has some great features and there's tons to get involved with right out of the box. I just recently sold my DS, I didn't think I'd ever want to play handheld stuff anymore. You know, getting older and eyes getting worse and stuff. Now I see this 3DS and I want one. That feeling should pass, unless that certain game comes out that I just can not live with out. AR card gaming is the future Jimmy!

Review: Nintendo 3DS & SSFIV 3D edition

By: grey walrus Apr 1, 2011 | 10 Comments

I bought mine on launch day, and here's what I think.

Nintendo's new 3DS. We've all been wondering and speculating as to how this was going to turn out, but now it's here and I've got mine. As you all know by now the 3DS is essentially a DS with a 3D top screen. It's graphics have been upddated, and the control layout has been changed slightly. We've now got an analog thumbstick and a "home" button. 

Much like the Wii the 3DS has a home menu with different "channels" as pictured above. You've got a 3 built in cameras. Two on the outside, and one on the inside that can be used to take pictures in either 2D or 3D. The 3D slider on the top screen of the console can be used to adjust the 3D effect from only slightly 3D to "WHOAH HOLY CRAP THIS IS BUGGING OUT MY EYES!" 3D, or if you don't like it all, it can be turned off entirely. 

 

Enough with all of the boring specs. You wanna know what you get with this thing. As pictured above you can see the 6 altered reality cards that you get with your console. The five character cards all pretty much do the same thing. The character depicted on the card will pop out of it and you can then move them around in your house or wherever you are, and it looks like the charcters chillin with you. It's really cool. You can change their size and poze with a few pre rendered selections. It's fun taking pictures of you and your friends hanging out with Link or Kirby. The "?" block card is a little different though. You place it on your table or whatever and it actually starts up a target shooting minigame that takes place wherever you are. 

 

The 3DS also comes built in with a sound studio where you can record your voice and edit it. Doing things like making it play backwards, putting filters on it, messing with the speed, and altering the pitch. It's a cool thing to mess with. You also get the game called face raiders. In face raiders you take a picture of either your face, or a picture of somebodies face around you and shoot it. You look through your 3DS screen into your house or room and attack little flying faces. Also a lot more fun that it sounds. 

 

Also much like the wii you can make Mii's on your 3DS. They haven't changed much if at all from the wii versions, but you can take a picture of yourself and have the 3DS fill in the facial features for you if you want. While this sounds cool I haven't had much luck with it. It's hard to get it to read your face at times, and the times I got it to work it wound up looking nothing like me or my friends, but that's just me I guess. Other's have had more luck with it. 

There's also the new street pass feature which is cool to use with your friends, but i haven't had any luck running into a random stranger with my 3DS yet so... maybe that one will come into play more as more consoles sell. And one final feature of the 3DS is the friend codes. They're back, but wih the 3DS you can actually see when your friends are online... not that that really does anything for you. You can't message them or anything, but that might show up later as well. 

 

Overall I'm very satisfied with my 3DS the $250.00 price tag is a bit out of range for a lot of people considering it's only a handheld, but that's the same price the wii when it was launched, but I think the 3DS has much more potential.  The graphics are phenomanal, the games announced for it are amazing, and everything I've heard about it so far has been good news. 

VERDICT: BUY IT!

 

On to bigger and better things though. 

 

I've played a few of the launch titles for the 3DS, but this is definitely the one to own. We've all seen countless reviews on SSFIV and honestly not much has changed, and that's.... a good thing.

 

I was a bit weary about buying SSFIV 3D edition considering that I already own the better version on the console, but it's awesome. Almost nothing has been left out of this port. The only thing that has been forgotten was the Japanese voice option, but honestly that's understandable. Trial mode, online, bonus stages, arcade, and even the first 2 alts for all of the vanilla charcters are there, and the first alt for each super character are there. This game has it all.

GRAPHICS: SSFIV 3D editon looks great. It might not be quite as good looking as the console versions, but for a handheld it looks fantastic. It's definitely one of the best looking handheld ports I've ever seen. The only draw back is the static backgrounds, but even that isn't really too big of a deal. The 3D really makes the characters pop out, and it makes the menus look awesome. Everything kind of layers out and stands on top of eachother and that's cool

SOUND: It's the same. it's all here. There's a glitch at the drive-in at night where it'll only loop through a 16 second sound clip, and that can get annoying, but just turn your sound off for the fight and enjoy the game.

I'm not really going to go through any more of the specifics because honestly. This is the console version portable. There's really not much more to say about it. If you like the console version and you buy a 3DS, you're going to like this game. The online is good. I've played about 50 matches and only a couple of them have lagged so far. The control stick takes some getting used to, but it works out in the end. 

 

The new over the shoulder view is cool to mess around with, but if you're a hardcore player you're not going to like it at all. It's too hard to tell where your spacing is, and it makes pokes almost impossible. If you're a hardcore player I'd say try it out,but don't try any serious training with it or you'll just get frustrated. 

 

Even the achievements are back. Do they do anything? no, but they're there. The new street pass figurine fighting mode is something I can't really comment on at this time because I haven't gotten to fight anybody that way yet. On the upside the figures are kind of cool to look at, and If you don't wanna mess with it you don't have to. 

VERDICT: BUY IT!

It's the same game only portable, and while that might not sound very cool to some, it actually is. 

 

Jimmy Notes, and a few extra tidbits:

3DS Pros:

  • Good graphics
  • Good sound/speakers
  • Altered reality games are fun and innovative
  • Cons:
  • Not many good launch titles
  • Internet browser/Netflix not yet usable

SSFIV 3D edition Pro's:

  • Good graphics
  • It's SSFIV
  • Good sound
  • It's SSFIV
  • everything's still there
  • IT'S SSFIV!!!!!

Con's:

  • Not really anything new
  • static backgrounds
  • Music Glitch

 

The 3DS and SSFIV 3D edition are both fantastic. If you have the extra money and you're thinking of picking them up then do it. You won't be disapointed. 

BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!\

There's a lot to cover when talking about a brand new console so I probably missed some stuff. If you have any questions just ask in the comments and I'll get back to you.
