Game releases are a little light, so I thought we could maybe discuss consoles instead. Last week we talked about the PS Vita so this week I thought we have a rabble about the 3DS. Who is using it? How are you using it? Have you already bought one, thinking about buying one?
It's funny, the 3DS played host to my favourite two games of 2013 — Luigi's Mansion 2 and A Link Between Worlds — but it feels like 2014 has been a year where the 3DS has fallen by the wayside. Sure, games have been released, and good ones at that — but are any of these games close to the quality the platform displayed in 2013? I'd argue no. Yoshi's New Island was a disappointment, Mario Golf World Tour... is a golf game.
There have been plenty of niche JRPGs released on the console, but I don't really have the time to invent 50+ hours into games like that so my 3DS has slowly been gathering dust. Which is so strange considering it was my favourite console just six or seven months ago.
Is this a common thing? Am I going crazy? Let us know in the comments below.
