[EAST] Who's bringing their 3DS (or other handheld device) and what games?

I'm planning on bringing my 3DS to play with people but I'm curious as to how many people are bringing theirs and what games are going to be played the most. I'm already going to assume Mario-Kart is the main one with a little Street Fighter thrown in for good mix.

    I will have a 3DS as well as my husband's DS (for longer battery life). I will have Mario Kart all up ins! I also have Street Fighter 3DS but I am very shitty at it and probably won't want to play anyone because it is a lot more expensive to Hulk Slam a 3DS than it is a SNES controller.

    the ds was very popular last year. the 3ds was coming out a week or two after pax last year, so i don't know how popular that particular device will be this year, but i have a feeling there will be a fair number of people with one. i brought my dsi last year and played many a game of mario kart with many a people. also played some random other games, mainly while waiting in lines.

    in fact, as i was waiting in a line for one of the main events, i popped into a ds chat room because i was bored. i ended up talking to a really cute guy. we ended up spotting each other in line and hung out for the rest of the night.

    I'll bring my 3DS and my DS Lite, with: Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart DS, Pokemon Black/Soul Silver... and maybe Tetris. Don't see myself playing anything else.

  • ColdbrewColdbrew PAX Community DVD Lake Stevens, WARegistered User regular
    Mario Kart 7, Starfox, probably have Kid Icarus by then.

    I'll bring my 3DS again (got sooooooo many StreetPasses at Prime) to babysit. Seriously, I had to open the thing and clear stuff out every 10-15 minutes lol.

    I'll be bringing MK7, Tetris Axis, SSFIV:3D (mainly just for figurine battles), and maybe Kid Icarus if it's out before East (and I feel like buying it.) Debating whether or not I will bring any regular DS games this time around though.

    I'm going with Mario Kart 7, Resident Evil Mercenaries, Sonic Generations, Shinobi, Super Mario 3D, Super Street Fighter IV, and Pokemon White. I should have Resident Evil Revelations, Metal Gear Solid, Kid Icarus, and the Circle Pad before PAX also. I know it seems like alot, but hey, I like variety.

    I'm bringing mine and my husband is bringing his! So far we plan on bring Mario Kart 7/DS, Tetris Axis/DS, Pokemon White/Soul Silver and TWEWY. I'm hoping to get some puzzle pieces from streetpass, blasted pink pieces!

    I'll be bringing my 3ds with Mario Kart 3d. Maybe another multiplayer game if I buy one by then.

    Anyone planning to bring a Vita with them?

  • griffin.brucegriffin.bruce Registered User regular
    I'll have my 3DS and plan to pick up MK7 soon. Will also hopefully have a Vita by then!

    I think the answer to this thread is "everyone." Not having your handheld device with you is unthinkable!

    I'll have my 3DS and Vita with me for sure! StreetPass will be EPIC!

    Glad you started this thread. I have a DS and had been wondering if I should even bother bringing it thinking that the majority of people will be rockin' a 3DS.

    I'm always amazed that more people don't have a handheld outside of PAX. I mean really? Lines, the DMV, and doctor visits are sooooo much more fun! Pokemans FTW and Mario Kart DS for a close second!

    It's because of the glares of the general public. Not everyone is ready for the awesomeness that is self-gaming-awareness ;)

    I was rocking out to some street fighter at the doctors office. People gave me some looks but I think they were mostly jealous since I was the only one there didn't look bored out of their mind.

    I'm usually too busy enjoying my game to notice any scorns. I worked hard and make good money now, so I take solace in the fact that I'm probably richer than the person judging me.

  • bushisprezbushisprez Registered User regular
    I would say Mario Kart 7, StarFox 64 3D, Resident Evil Revelations, and that Kid Icarus game will be what people will be playing. If not there is the mii plaza games pre-loaded on 3ds that use spot pass & street pass. Although I'm thinking PS Vita is going to be the hot ticket since it releases in Feb.

    Now that is going old school. Makes me almost want to bust out my Atari Lynx and maybe even blow the dust off the Virtual Boy.

    Pokemon Black&White was released a week or two before PAX so that's all anyone was playing last year. As for this year, MarioKart3DS and probably LOZ:Four Swords, I can't think of any other "good" multiplayer games at the moment, but I'll be bringing both 3DS and DS.

    My wife and I rocked out Mario Kart at the DMV when she had to get her license here. Made the 90 minutes fly by.

    A 3DS for the obvious Street Passes is the best bet. Nobody in the US will be buying a Vita, so it's pointless to bring.

    I'll definitely be bringing my 3DS, as will my boyfriend. We'll both be bringing Mario Kart for sure. I'll also probably be bringing Zelda OoT and Pokemon White.
    I'm a little bummed that the 3DS doesn't have a chat feature like my old DSlite. That was definitely a fun time last year. This new Swapnote thing isn't the same.

    See! Now that's what I'm talking about! If you have to wait, wait happy. Otherwise you're just another grumbler in the corner.

    Virtual Boy would be tough to carry around.

    Funny story - At Pax Prime 2010, I was playing Double Dragon in line waiting for a panel to start and a random attendee asked me if I could turn the game off cause he must have been really annoyed with the sound of my tiger handheld. Haha!

    I'll probably bring my 3DS along with Pokemon and I will hopefully pick up the new Mario Kart.

    I'll have my 3DS, along with Pokemon: Black, LoZ: Four Swords, Kid Icarus, not sure about RE or MK7 as of yet. But I had 3 hours to kill between classes today, and was really glad I had this thing with me (currently on my second run through Cave Story 3D). Also, passed about 1000 other students between yesterday and today. Number of streetpass tags: 0. :/

    I'll be hedging my bets and bringing my DS and my 3DS, with Mario Kart for both, some version of Pokemon, and Zelda. Maybe some others if I have some extra spending money to blow before April.
