So... as a bit of a background story my house got robbed a couple days before christmas and it was really awful. My bother's laptop and his new 3DS that he got as a christmas present were both stolen. My DSi, along with all of it's games and attachments were also stolen along with my purse.
I was pretty mad about this but I chose not to share with with the complaints forum via complaint simply because it was something that I didn't want to whore out for attention. Instead, I sucked it up. I canceled my debit card, went to the DMV and made a new copy of my license, and I saved up some money and bought myself a new DS. I thought,"Hey, why not just upgrade while I'm at it so I can buy the new games?"

So I got a new 3DS and I'm pretty pleased with it save for a few gripes. I will compile them in convenient list form for your enjoyment.

1. Region blocking- Whyyyyyyy???? Why would you do this? Now I actually have to wait for games to come out instead of buying them early and dealing with moonspeak. :c Animal Crossing New Leaf, how I long to play you. Also, all of my other Japanese games are now unplayable. Maybe I can sell them to some weaboos at the next con or something. I'm planning on having a booth open anyways.

2. I tried connecting with a friend over animal crossing wild world and found out that DS and 3DS are incompatible for wireless connections! I understand that Nintendo is trying to do away with the regular DS but NOOOOOOOOO D:

3. My 3DS seems so breakable. My screen is super loose and wobbly, and the overall feel of my DS is way more fragile than my old DSi. The newer 2DS's that are out seem to be made out of much better material. I tried saving money by buying mine used, and google is telling me that the earlier 3DS's often have loose hinges to try and prevent them from breaking. Apparently they were too tight on the DS, DSlite, and DSi?
My little cousin bought a 3DS and it doesn't seem to have this problem.

4.Half the good games aren't even released yet. :c I'm talking Pokemon x and y, luigi's mansion, animal crossing new leaf, ect. This system has been out for years now!! I understand that Nintendo is taking their time to make the games perfect but I'm insanely antsy.

end complaint.

Nintendo is terrible with release day games. Abysmally terrible.

I had my DSI stolen out of my dad's car, I miss it a lot. :( I've been meaning to get a new one, I was thinking about getting a 3DS but it doesn't have a whole lot more to offer for me, and after what you have to say about it, eeeeh...

My 3DS screen is like that too. If you jerk your hand while you're playing it, it'll tilt. My old DS's screen was much better in that aspect. It didn't move unless you intentionally made it. I'm okay with it though. I only really ever play Ocarina of Time on it anyway.
Back in my day we had the original nintendo, your lucky to play with such high tech gadgets

And that must mean that I'm not allowed to have any sort of criticism for said devices, huh.

I'm trying to convince myself that I need to go get a 3DS just because of Pokemon X&Y. I just can't see spending that kind of money on a system that makes my eyes bleed. I know you can turn off the 3D, but then why spend the money on a 3DS if you're not going to us the 3D....

I got it so that I could continue to play the new games that come out. And I'm not going to lie, they look really good. :o

I've never NOT gotten the new Pokemon games. Honestly its probably the only reason I even have a DSi. I just sort of wish they were doing the same with X and Y as they did with the others and released a DSi version and a 3DS version..
