Picked this up from Amazon just now for $29.99. I know that’s only $10 off the MSRP, but if you knew how often Nintendo 1st-party titles go on sale, you’d understand why I jumped on this deal ASAP. (The original New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS came out in 2006 and still carries a price tag of $34.99.) If you’re a 3DS owner, now’s a great time to pick up a title you may have passed on earlier. There’s a lot of great deals going on now, with a surprising number of 1st party games on sale.
It is pretty easy to get stuck/lost in the first half of the game. Wall jumping takes finesse. Play with headphones. Music is sooooo good!scottfriday replied to your photo: First time. #Metroid #nintendo #wiiu…

Wait, first time playing Super Metroid?! If that’s what you meant, oh boyyy you’re in for a MAJOR treat! :)There’s a lot of love for this game. You guys are almost making me wish I had played this before playing Metroid Fusion. Almost. I loved every second of Metroid Fusion. Even so, after playing Super Metroid for only a couple hours, it’s obvious where Fusion got the bulk of its gameplay design from.
Nintendo 3DS vs. PlayStation Vita
This…this isn’t even a contest. The 3DS is on fire right now with more to come. While they’ve got some issues on the home console front to deal with, their portable business is pretty shored up (at least when it comes to keeping gamers happy).
Generally I’m not a fan of Gamestop, but I’m always a fan of a great deal and right now GameStop has a wonderful sale on a lot of pre-owned games - 50% off! The sale just started and it’s mostly for older games (Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3), so if you’re up for finding a cult classic or two, now is the time to move. I was able to snag the above titles for a grand total of $17.
The end of a console generation is the best time for deals. Since the Wii U’s release, I’ve been able to snag great Wii titles for pennies on the dollar. Which is great, because with as empty as the Wii U’s release calendar is, I need something to play. Now, if only I had the time to do so…
Together, @arcadiatiger & I have quite the #3DS collection. Nintendo’s newest portable has come along nicely… #nintendoenthused
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon obtained. @arcadiatiger is a happy camper. #nintendoenthused #3DS
Best part about this photo? She decided that we needed to go out last night at midnight to the only 24 hour Walmart in town to go pick it up. With Luigi being her favorite character, Em’s been waiting a while for this one. As I type, she’s still curled up on the couch, searching mansions and busting ghosts, just as happy as she can be.
Fire Emblem Awakening. There are good games, there are great games, then there are excellent games. This one falls into that last category. Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about this title.
If you own a 3DS and you don’t own this game, you’re doing it wrong.
