I'm still debating getting a 3ds because I really want to play that game again.

On a scale of 1 being No and 10 being Yes, how likely are you to get one?

I'm at a five or so now. I looked at them a few weeks ago but wasn't sure what was what, so to speak. I found the presence of the 2ds on the shelf at a much lower price very confusing.

Don't let it confuse you too much. The 2DS is merely just the same console without the ability to turn on the 3D effects (3D like on a 3D TV/movie).

Beyond that, you have the classifications of "New" and "XL". "New" 3DS/2DS is... I really don't know. Supposedly it is slightly more powerful and has a very limited amount of exclusive games to it (I think Xenoblade and Fire Emblem Heroes may be the only ones). "XL" is simply larger than the regular.

Damnit, I'm going to get one! Soon...

Once I get mine we can compare notes.

It'll be here on Friday...  ;D

You haven't truly lived until you've waited for way longer than 3 days to get your console. :snooty:

Try waiting on parts for a machine you haaaaave to get operational yesterday that are late, and then WRONG because the counter person selected a different model, assuming you were asking for the wrong parts.

I can't remember how many times we had to pay for shipping on that one.

That kind of thing could certainly be made into an epic saga, though unfortunately it's not the stuff of legend or myths.

I am feeling quite hyperbolic today.  ;D

Did you also get the Zelda game?

I got the Zelda Edition. Whatever that means. I think it's going to be green and come with Zelda preloaded.

Having trouble remembering which button plays which note on the ocarina. Tricky.

True, but I might wind up breaking the damn thing in frustration.

I still haven't unboxed mine. :( I guess all that waiting has somewhat dampened the desire to play.

(I think I'm also a little afraid to play, what if I can't stop?) ::)

You'd best get it out. I'm already a good ways into it. Seven whole years...
