Get your 3DS Friend Codes here.

I'll try to keep on top of this as much as I can, but the following should provide anyone with more then enough Penny Arcade people to friend and is as comprehensive as I could get for now.
Spoiler:

This thing is out everywhere now and the 3D revolution is now in full swing! As far as games are concerned: Here is what Game Rankings has to say and here is what Metacritis has to say.

Most people posting here seem to be saying that Splinter Cell: Ghost Recon is easily one of the best launch games (it is said that it bears a lot of similarities with Fire Emblem and the Advance Wars games in gameplay or other aspects) along with Super Street Fighter IV, which is certainly getting a lot of play too. Appartenly the Lego Star Wars game isn't too bad either and although the port of Rayman 2 could have been a bit better, the consensus is that its still a solid game worth owning if you are a fan of Rayman games or want to try something new. Samurai Warriors also seems to be very well liked by everyone who owns it and the one person that we know of who bought Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D gave it a very enthusiastic recommendation. From what I have seen people post about Ridge Racer it doesn't seem to be the greatest looking game exactly, but its has been lauded as being fun enough if racing is your thing. Honestly, the games that don't seem to be getting as much strong recommendations right now are the Nintendo ones. Plenty of people have Pilotwings and suggest picking it up with the caveat that you are a completionist and don't mind trying to go back and master all of the games missions (which is where most are saying the fun in the game lies). Steel Diver is the black sheep of the Nintendo releases so far. The words "tech demo" get used a lot when the game is discussed, which is a shame. Nintendogs + Cats seems to be basically more of the same with some nice additions so if you liked the last game, chances are you will like this one too. Also, apparently the puppies are really fucking cute. To such an extent that if Tycho had not made the New Years resolution that he did, he might try to fuck Professor Snugglesworth 2.0 with little success. Anyway, let me know if I left anything out here, but that covers most of the bases pretty well. Another quick thing, many people have posted that if your system is crashing at all you should make sure that you have updated the latest 3DS firmware update. Finally, Lunker would like to let you know that the Nyko Power Pak + is quite bitchin' indeed! If you have any qualms with the battery or would even like the system to feel a little more comfortable during play, you should probably look into getting it.


And now, some launch news . . .

3DS: A brief introspective look:


classy3ds.png

This is the Nintendo 3DS. As you can see, it is a sophisticated looking handheld with an elegant design even in its default closed position. Notice the beautiful aesthetics of the two perfectly positioned cameras on the front. The real surprise comes when you open it though. Behold, the timeless and innovative two screen inventiveness birthed by the classic Nintendo DS makes its triumphant return, but improved! Those who are especially astute will observe that the bottom screen is a touch screen and the fashionable stylus which offers truly extraordinary comfort and control when utilizing this device. It is mesmerizing in its boldness and simplicity, no? But hold your gaze upon it no longer at this time, for I implore that you glance at the even more exquisite screen located just above.

Now this ladies and gentlemen is a breathtakingly immaculate and advanced screen. From the inception of this wondrous product it was decided that this central feature would delight users with a wide screen display, the capacity to create gorgeous renderings of an unparalleled resolution, and more stunning yet . . . real 3D images, without the need for detestable and garish glasses which only serve to make one look quite foolish. The genius spark behind it astounds and amazes! You will not care to look at the "exquisite" art in your private collection after experiencing this marvel for yourself. What was once thought to be a work of nigh perfection will quickly begin to pale in comparison, and every piece will begin to appear flat and boring by their very nature. You will henceforth cease to desire their supposed qualities, and crave the stimulation of images that pop out! Also, encased in this brilliant iPod-like shell are other novelties which I do not quite comprehend. However, I have heard genuinely engaging and intellectually rousing discussion of gyroscopes, embedded microphones, communication of a wireless nature, universal codes which are said to be friendly, and perhaps most intriguing of all . . . alternate realities.

This is the Nintendo 3DS.

Its cutting-edge tech, in a truly luxurious handheld.™

    Man, I'm awful at Street Fighter. I haven't played Street Fighter before, and I haven't played anything like it since what might have been the original Tekken. And I was awful at Tekken.
    I just had to use a continue on the arcade mode on Very Easy. Also, I think I'm already learning some bad habits, like spamming crouch + kick. But I can Hadouken almost on cue, which has to be a decent start.

    If anyone from Australia has SSFIV and is at least as bad as me, I'd be happy to give you a game.

    So I bought me a couple rechargeable batteries with USB ports. I figure this might be a better solution than the Nyko battery stuff. Still not sure which one I'd rather carry with me normally (one is 5200mah, the other is 11000mah. The 11k is about the size of the Macbook power supply brick, and the 5200 is half that size).

    I think ideally I'd like to hook them up to the charging station in some large case in my bag, then throw my 3DS in it whenever I'm not using it.

    Plus I can always use them to charge my phone if I ever need to.

    Oh snap.
    oshinori Ono "confirms" that could be presented a new desktop system from Nintendo.

    Thus, players could be facing one of the possible bombing that Nintendo would have prepared for the E3 in Los Angeles, the arrival of Wii 2 could be imminent.

    All this information has come through the words of one of the people most is betting on Nintendo 3DS, Yoshinori Ono, Capcom and developer already has a review of Super Street Fighter IV on Nintendo 3DS.

    It is well known for their support in the handheld, has confirmed that Super Street Fighter IV will have connectivity to a video game system, but can not confirm until three months, coinciding with the E3 in Los Angeles. They suggest two things very interesting in his words, the first that the games could be patched and updated to offer new content and the aforementioned Wii 2 could be presented at the Nintendo press conference.

    Hope it's true. I so want to not play Nintendo games in 480p.

    Although I am in no way looking forward to another GC/GBA snafu. Unless it's wireless connectivity, which would be semi neat.

    Good thing Ono's a self-admitted troll then, because if that's true then I'm done with console gaming for-fucking-ever. Partly because it just isn't right that the top console gets replaced while the distant runners-up keep going, but mostly because I can't fucking stand anything in HD.

    And yes, I'm absolutely serious about that last one. Hate it, hate it, hate it so very very much.

    Why wouldn't it be wireless? The DS has been wirelessly connected with the Wii since it came out, I think the first game to take advantage of it was Pokemon Battle Revolution and there have been several uses since including FFCC and demos from the Nintendo Channel.

    The Capcom Captivate event was from the 6th-7th and that's when people suspected they would announce Monster Hunter 3DS. I read somewhere that they had a ban on the press talking about the event for a week, though I can't find that article anymore. Holding back reviews is common, but holding back info from a press event?

    I personally will do terrible, horrible things to get Monster Hunter on my 3DS.

    Man, I'm awful at Street Fighter. .

    I got reasonably decent as SFIV by simply playing online. When I started, I was losing constantly. But as you play you start getting used to the advantages and disadvantages of your main character, as well as the adv/dis of character you face against. You get better at everything and eventually when you have all the basics down pat, you can go online and look up "bread and butter" combos for your character (basic, easy combos that do reasonable damage) and start incorporating those into your play. Pretty soon you'll realize you're a half decent player!

    Cosigned with slash000 (dude, we have to play some time! I'm also a pretty decent Cammy player. :)). I stopped playing fighting games around the Tekken 3/Tekken Tag era, but I took a gamble on SSFIV due to it being a really excellent port with online play, and I'm enjoying getting back into this genre of gaming. Online play is a must for becoming better—getting your ass kicked is probably the best way to figure out what it is you're doing, and it's also a good way to experience other character and find out how to use them well. Keep track of what keeps killing you (is it a special move? are you getting punished for jumping in with an attack all the time? does he throw you constantly?), and try to think of ways to get around it.

    For example, the other day I was getting creamed by a Vega player using off-the-wall special moves that I didn't know because I wasn't familiar with the timings, how to block, etc. So afterward, I went into training mode, programmed Vega to perform certain moves constantly (there's a great record->playback function that will let you program in sequences of moves), and then I went back to Cammy and practiced how to block and counter those specials that kept kicking my ass.

    Also, check out the full Street Fighter thread here, as the OP has a lot of great resources and videos on basic fighter strategy. If you don't want to delve too deep, just remember that a lot of wins boil down to playing head games: Keeping your opponent on your toes, changing up your attacks, not using the same two specials over and over.

    For people who are moving from a more built-in-combo kind of game like Tekken, definitely mess around with different characters. Many of them, like Ibuki or Dudley, have "target combos" that are semi-auto-programmed combos that will feel much more like other fighting games. I know, because I'm digging Ibuki now. :) Currently I'm bouncing between Ibuki and Cammy since I dislike playing the same character all the time, but getting to know some of the basic moves of each of the characters will also help you when you're fighting against them (e.g., knowing that Guile players will always be looking for a good space to Flash Kick, so don't keep jumping in to attack).

    Finally got a game on 3DS : Splinter Cell 3D

    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is one of my favourite games of all time, I've lost count of how many times I have played it now. Easily over 10 times though.

    The 3DS one is, to put it bluntly butchered. I've gone through the PC and original XBox versions, and the 3DS version sounds like it's much closer to the PS2 version from what I've read of it. The levels are no longer free-roaming, rather it's split off into chunks. So for instance the first level is cut up into 3 parts. The opening beach and part way into the compound, followed by the compound itself and finally the lighthouse. I'm thinking this is the case due to lack of RAM (96mb for games, 32mb reserved for the OS and menus). If Nintendo managed to reduce the amount the OS used at a time down to say 8mb, this would be great for games like SC3D. The load times between sections are atrocious (30 odd seconds or more), so cartridge load benefits are not there. The nice bump-mapping/textures from the XB version are gone and so are the dynamic shadows. Effects like rain puddles and rain on objects are gone too. Framerate is jumpy as well, with open areas taking the largest hit, but sometimes even in narrow corridors it stutters like the Scatman in a court plea. On the bright side, the 3D effect is nice enough and the conviction style mission notifications are in too.

    The controls are not customisable whatsoever, it is default or nothing. The default controls are finicky as all hell; analogue to move, A, B, X, Y to aim up down yarda yarda and the shoulder buttons for primary and secondary fire. The D-Pad is jump, reload, crouch/roll and adjust camera/wall-hug. Going into rolls on the move is a bitch.

    The lower screen is reserved for your weapons, map and aiming/customisation. Basically it displays your pistol and Assault rifle. By touching the weapon, you bring it up to over-the-shoulder view and draw at the same time. To the side of the picture is the zoom button and below that the customisation button (interchanging barrels + gadget functions). Context sensitive moments display at the bottom of the screen.
    The entire process takes time to learn and adjust to, the lack of touch screen aiming is a letdown as well. Mapping the weapons to the D-Pad and actions to the A,B,X,Y buttons would have been nicer.

    Hacking is pretty simple, a 3D cube is displayed and you are offered possible pieces that will fit to the missing spots. Once the gap is filled with the proper piece, you can access security and info. Fail and the alarm goes off. Each time it does, the enemies get more benefits (grenades, hard helmets and so forth).

    Multiplayer is gone. Zippo. Kaput. No co-op, no mercenaries. This would have been great to include as the modes were always smaller-scale skirmishes.

    Best part though is the sound though, the remixed soundtrack is fucking godly and the sounds from the original, including Michael Ironside's gruff barks are still intact.

    To sum it up : this game could have benefited from more time in the oven.

    TL : DR

    Good
    - It's Splinter Cell
    - Full campaign is in.
    - Remixed soundtrack
    - Michael Ironside

    Bad
    - Glaring graphics issues -> framerate, missing effects, PS2 textures.
    - Cut-up levels
    - No control options
    - Lack of Multi-player - The co-op on the original was stellar. Mercs would have made sense
    - Some bad accents for foreign characters.

    Now that Nintendo seems to be in full 3DS mode, here are a few things I expect from E3.

    A trailer for the new Mario 3D made by the Galaxy team with some info about it. (And a return of the Raccoon suit!)
    A new 2D/3D Metroid(Dread?) and I want it to take place AFTER Fusion, as I want to know how that story continues.

    I really do hope for a surprise or two for the Wii...but I'm pretty sure we'll get news of a localization of Xenoblade (yay!) and Last Story. I'm going to be upset if we go the whole Wii generation without a new console Star Fox. :x

    There have been a few reviews out for a while telling everyone to steer clear.
    I'm thinking this is the case due to lack of RAM (96mb for games, 32mb reserved for the OS and menus).

    The XBOX only had 64 meg of RAM.

    The version on 3DS is most likely a port from PS2 and Cube, which had 32 and 40 megs of RAM, respectively.

    It's because the port is lazy as the 3DS should be able to easily duplicate anything the OXBOX did.

    The only good Ubi launch game is Ghost Recon.

    Yeah, that is the sad thing, it could have been perfect, but Ubisoft dropped the ball on the port. The console is definitely capable of some amazing things, but lets just hope this is a minor experiment for what is to come.

    Ubisoft stated they got the Unreal 3.0 engine working on the 3DS, Splinter Cell 3D runs off the Unreal 2.5 engine. 3.0 could potentially produce better games.

    Ghost Recon caught my eye, will probably pick that or SSFIV3D next.

    Finally got a game on 3DS : Splinter Cell 3D

    Noooo why did you do it? :(

    There have been a few reviews out for a while telling everyone to steer clear.

    I missed them. Splinter Cell : Chaos Theory is one of my favourite games ever. I got kicked in the dick for my love of the original.

    On a brighter note, I've had 14 street passes in my shitty little city. More than I'd thought I'd get in a few months.

    Edit -> Looking back at the 14 Street Passes I've received, 9 out of them have SSFIV, and only one chick amongst the many swinging dicks.

    So which of you guys bought Samurai Warriors?

    I only have DS games and I'm not sure I want to wait for the first batch of new releases before I buy a 3D game. Is it good?

    If you're a fan of the Koei "Warriors" series, then it's pretty good.

    Objectively, on its own merits...nah, it ain't great.
