I used to have a beautiful, pristine blue Japanese Monster Hunter LE 3DS sold to me by a friend of mine who bought it to play Smash 4 early and ditched it after it came out westward (he sure loved to blow through money!) and which got me through my first years of college. Streetpass was just truckloads of fun and I had built out a nice game collection thanks to my local Book-off. then I fucking LOST IT God knows where along ALL my game cartridges and I’m still upset about it to this day. seeing the empty games boxes is a terrible feeling. I had like 4 DQ games!!
anywho I bought a regular old New 3DS about 3 years ago and it’s been serving me well. battery is like 3 and a half hours-ish but that’s how it is with these devices. playing Meteos in the metro still feels good.
I’ve played through Zelda ALBW back when it came out and thought it wasn’t that great. I may have been a tad harsh about it, will consider revisiting it soon. also no Fantasy Life mention whatsoever! you’d think it was a lock.
