I have both and find myself playing my 3DS all the damn time, and the Vita not so much. The Vita has pretty much boiled down to a old PSP/PS1 games + indie PSN ports machine for me at the moment, which isn't super compelling since I was able to play all those PSN indies on my PS3. The only Vita-exclusive games I have genuinely enjoyed were Dokuro and Gravity Rush.
The main genres I enjoy on my handheld are 2D platformers, RPGs and puzzle games, and the 3DS has those in spades. Definitely a lot of momentum on that system at the moment, as others have said. And if we're talking old games, I find the DS library more exciting than the PSP library, although part of that might be that I can actually play my DS carts on the 3DS, as opposed to the few PSP games I have. PS+ has done a decent job of providing cheap and/or free old digital games to play on the Vita though.
Just got around to checking out this thread and looking at all the entries. There are some amazing fucking graphic designers / artists on this site. Props to all ya'll, including folks who submitted...less serious entries.
This thread convinced me to put salsa on my omelette.
I've done that many times before, it's quite good! But I'm still anti-salsa on burgers. I don't want toppings so easily falling out of my hamburger! May I recommend an egg instead on said hamburger? That's the wave of the future - slowly integrating breakfast into everything!!!
It's weird feeling close to someone you've never actually met, but that's how I feel about all the Bombcrew. You've been an awesome and integral part of these sites for the past few years. I know everyone is sad to see you go, Dave, but good luck with being a dad! A lot of my real life friends are getting to that point in their lives, and it seems like a tough gig from the glimpses that I get.
Crazy that Rorie is coming back, too. Seems like none of the crew can stay away for too long :)
Good post! These games are pretty much the reason my 3DS has been my most-played console as of late. (Along with just finishing Luigi's Mansion as well.) One of these days I'll actually finish an RPG after I start it, this tends to happen to me a lot, with this being my favorite genre, but me being a busy adult with not a lot of time.
I have around 45-50 hrs into Fire Emblem, and I'm on story mission 22 at the moment (I think there are 25?), so I'm actually going to end up finishing that one! I'm on the third labyrinth in EO4, really enjoying that as well. Like you, my first experience with EO was a little bit of time with EO3.
Bought Pandora's Tower and Soul Hackers this week, but haven't opened either yet. I get wary about trying to play too many RPGs at once. Think I'll at least finish the story mode of Injustice before I give either of those a spin. Seems like we've been touching on a lot of the same games! :)
