    god i completely forgot about that one
    The last act of that game has you go from Thomas's true nature to George's true nature to Kaysen's true nature to Zach's true nature to Emily dying

    Lots of true natures there

    Isn't VLR that game that sounds like Saw in video game format with more mystery and less exploitation?

    If so is it actually better than Saw because man do I hate those movies.

    Like, I might eventually get Pokemon.

    But after I get a 3DS, the list goes:

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Mario Kart 7
    Fire Emblem: Awakening
    Luigi's Mansion
    Animal Crossing

    and then Pokemon

    You could get a 2DS!

    I still wanna try one of those out

  • DragkoniasDragkonias Registered User regular
    I've been thinking about a 2DS.

    On one hand I think it looks dumb and I wouldn't be able to carry it around in my pocket.

    On the other hand, its cheaper and with how busy I am I probably get most of my play time at home anyway.

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    Oh man I just saw that new TV spot for Arkham Origins

    Really dig the tone of it, like someone else said, not great at telling you what the game is but a nice video nonetheless

    Also it's a new Batman: Arkham game, people know what those are at this point, so it's not like it needs to sell it to you any further

    I was thinking about it earlier today and Arkham Origins is kinda the last big game exclusive to the current consoles, right? I can't think of any more 360 games and only Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 coming in December, I think. And I don't quite remember GT5 lighting the world on fire, it seems like a lot of people migrated to Forza

    Yeah I was looking at that. I'd only ever use it at home anyway.

    You can't fit a regular 3DS in your pocket anyway.

    Well, I mean, maybe if you wore cargo pants or something? But then your money should be going to a new wardrobe.

    The lack of a circle pad pro for the 2DS would suck for some games.

    (You really want an XL anyway, dat screen!)

    I'm 6'5" so unless I'm wearing skinny jeans I usually don't want for pocket space.

    It's like pocket depth and most volume. Who wants an unsightly DS bulge breaking up the line of their leg?

    The idea of fitting an XL in one of my pockets is...just... unthinkable.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    It burnssss us Stig.

    IT BURNSSSS USSSSSS

    Anyway, in far more pressing matters, why the heck is there a Hatsune Miku poster in my Jr. Highschool?

    A DS bulge is one of the first things I look for in a partner

    In other news, finished the Bombcast today, and am kinda wondering about the new generation and load times. The guy that reportedly tried out the Xbox One said all the games had long load times, but I was just doing some digging on the next-gen versions of Lego Marvel, and apparently the PS4/One versions of that game have eliminated loads completely

    Small things do! Like keys. That is about all I have in my pockets these days.

    Thin wallets are good too, but thin wallets do not agree with Japanese yen.

    I'm a big man, so obviously my pockets are probably bigger, but I frequently go into stores and forget my 3DSXL is in my pocket. It's not even uncomfortable, it just takes up the whole pocket

    they're pretty low profile compared to the DSi

    I think 5 still sold 10 million plus, like all Gran Turismos. But yeah, there wasn't really a lot of buzz around it. Not a lot of forum chatter.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    This conversation prompted me to try fitting my XL in my pocket.

    It didn't take.

    Is it just me or are the prices for 3DSes on Amazon completely ridiculous right now?

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    It felt that way about 4 too

    I remember Gran Turismo 1-3 being like...the thing and now I guess everyone buys it but just doesn't talk about it anymore?

    Don't buy Nintendo products on Amazon

    They have some weird feud so the prices are totally fucked

    I looked but realized that I have no frame of reference anymore.

    It seems really expensive to me. Especially the used prices. Here you can snag a used 3DS for sub $100 if you look around.

  • HugmasterGeneralHugmasterGeneral Registered User regular
    I ended up getting my XL on some weird sale. I think I paid $160 for it new, which was a good deal considering they're still $200 at best

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    I can't believe that Nintendo/Amazon thing is still going on

    I'm sure it's hurting Nintendo way more than Amazon
