Greenyz (Francis Basco) and BigGumby (Dustin Grissom) have both had their 3DS’ since launch (Greenyz went to the midnight launch!). Although some people may not be as impulsive as we were when buying the next generation Nintendo handheld, there are some people out there that may still be questioning whether now is the time to buy a 3DS, or if there even is a time at all. With this feature, Greenyz and I (BigGumby) are hoping that we can put your worries to rest, and help you with your lingering question: Should I “drop in” or “drop out” of getting a 3DS? To do this, we are going to run through all of the key features with the system, including the user-interface, the hardware, the built-in software, it’s online offerings, StreetPass and SpotPass, the eShop, and, of course, the 3D effect. So, let’s get started!
Coming off their hot streak with the Metroid Prime series, Retro Studios tries their hand at rebooting another famous Nintendo mascot: Donkey Kong. While not adding much to the formula, Retro Studios keeps what made the original Donkey Kong Country games great, while simultaneously building upon it and perfecting it. What the game lacks in innovation, it makes up for in sheer fun, brutal difficulty (in the most positive ways, of course), and beautiful scenery, resulting in a game that bests its beloved counterparts.
