I love the 3DS to death. TO DEATH. But if you only really need one game - A Link Between Worlds. It kept me hooked and is one of the few games I did to 100%. It's just so damn rewarding and the side quests are excellent.

For a download game - SteamWorld Dig is much better than you'd think. It's really just about tunnelling and getting better equipment to dig deeper but again it kept me hooked for a week solid. It's another game where I wanted to see it all.

You want a reason Sweep?

Posts being deleted that are not even REMOTELY disruptive and i was playing it mostly for laughs tbh. This forum used to be fun, you could actually criticise things with being called out on being "a trouble maker/trying to troll" now its full of people saying everything is great because mods decide what is and is not suitable and delete what they like killing any interesting conversations before they get interesting.

Before someones jumps on me im not saying that we should put up with sexism/racism so don't be stupid yeah?

Could you give an example? I am not trying to jump on you, I really do want to know, because if the moderation was unwarranted then that is important.

But who decides what's unwarranted? It's all down to the 4/5 active mods who really crack down on things at their discretion. What one person might deem as okay, another might feel it's unecessary and disrupts the harmony of the board or whatever. I can see both sides of the coin on this one, but there's not much you can do about it.

That's not really how things work at all. We are all constantly talking behind the scenes through various channels and are typically watching and discussing topics as they happen, and it's always been that way. I understand that to users you only see the last step of what is a much bigger process, but realize that there is a process there even though you don't see it happening.

I have had private messages from users with posts in the 10,000s (so more dedicated than I) complaining about the mods on here. You're so right @deadpan I've been told basically "guys this thread is supposed to be funny, not for serious discussion". I mean it wasn't getting into politics or anything it was was just people talking about games and if I recall sexism in games. No personal attacks, no crass talk or overt sexism, just a regular talk. But no, it was deemed "not funny enough got Giant Bomb". I mean there's mods that CLEARLY have agendas and take criticism as personal as bad as some of those reallllly bad kids on the IGN comments section.

Wait your turn... one day they'll call you out and delete something you've said for no other reason than it doesn't suit them. I don't even want to say which mods I mean or this will most likely get deleted.

Why is it so hard for people not to lose their shit before a game comes out? Seriously, wait. It's not that hard and then if it's something worth being upset over, be upset. But in reality are video games ever worth being upset over?

How many goddamn posts do we need about this kind of shit? There's two consoles, both have strengths and weaknesses. And I mean saying wifi is a must.... yeah about a second of research would reveal even wristwatches can come with wifi now so I reckon a new console might.

There's been about five posts like this in the past three days.

Actually the hardest is that fucking awful boss battle in Dead or Alive with Omega or whatever ... that fucking camera angle where I kept jumping by accident. Oh man I'm getting pissed off just thinking about it. What an absolutely awful design choice.

I think this happened in an episode of Family Ties once.
