Hello fellow Bombers, I've recently started a new job that requires me to work night shifts, and there are gaps where nothing is happening and I am left sitting around twiddling my thumbs. In the search for entertainment I am turning to ya'll for advice for killing time, this could go drastically wrong. Anyway's the thought occurred to me hey I should get one of those new fangled 3DS XL's I just dunno what games are really good for the system, or if the system itself is even good. I love RPG's and err other games. So go! Inform me on what makes the 3DS so darn great, and say it in an entertaining fashion cause I'm at work and bored as hell
Should I Get a 3DS?
For RPGs the 3DS is a tad bit starved right now. However, the three that come to mind right now are Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, Tales of the Abyss, and SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy might also be something to get into if playing a rhythm RPG game based on FF tunes is something that sounds interesting to you.
That is however ignoring the rather huge library of RPGs already out on regular ol' vanilla DS that you can also play, and there are some really good gems in there. Would I get a 3DS as solely an RPG device? If your excited about the SMT stuff announced on it, then yes. For other varieties of RPGs though I would say to get an original DS on the cheap and wait it out till some more developers start representing themselves properly on the 3DS.
great 3DS games:
2. Heroes of Ruin (RPG)
5. Pushmo (eShop)
6. Mario Kart 7
I think there are few RPGa games for 3DS because it is a new handheld however the DS has a lot of RPGs and you can play them in your 3DS
great DS games (RPGs):
