3DS Review

My personal thoughts on the 3DS

Well, as said, I tested the 3DS today hands on for about 30 minutes. And well I'm not THAT convinced. It certainly met my expectations, but it's not that overwhelming that you go crazy and really need one.

So about the 3D without glasses:
It definitly is real 3D; but don't expect anything like an Imax-cinema 3D movie jumping in your face. It's more like you're looking into a small box behind the 3DS.. get it somehow?
Make sure your eyes are working and aren't somehow retarded! About 7% of the worlds population are probably unable to see the 3D, because you'll need two working eyes (glasses don't matter).
Sometimes if you're playing and focusing at a certain point you can loose the 3D somehow (at least that's what happend to me).

So much about the 3D vision. So far I played Super Street Fighter 4 and a little bit Pilotwings. As a Street Fighter fan I was especially exited about this one. Well you won't be able to play this at a high level or you're somehow crazy. As an Arcade Stick user playing a Street Fighter titel with my thumbs for the first time after a long pause was pretty much rape. And if you use the 3D view (a special mode), it gets ass-rape. The funniest thing about SSF4 on 3DS is, you can put special moves on a shortcut button on the touchscreen. This means you'll be able to perform Zangiefs Ultra with just one tip of a thump at any time - you can also use any move from any charge Char WITHOUT CHARGE!!! You know what this'll do? Standing-instant-Guile-Fukken-Flashkick out of nowhere!!! So if you thought normal Super Street Fighter 4 couldn't get more imbalanced.. just try this one! If somebody in the world will be able to play Gen properly on 3DS - HE CAN'T BE HUMAN! (Remember you only have 6 Buttons all in all!)

This sure sounds negative, but the 3DS for sure is fun. You can make 3D pictures. You can watch 3D movies and pictures with a SD-card - ooooh SD-card!! You know what this means right? It's the unofficial invitation from Nintendo to hack the shit out the 3DS and rape all 3rd party game publishers.
As a poorfag, I have to admit the 3DS currently isn't worth 222€ / 249$ at the moment. Just wait until it's hacked for sure / there are some good games (Zelda) / it's available in a cheap bundle or something.

Hope this was a help somehow.

Next, I'm up to Japan and the catastrophe - and then back to games.

  10. I believe that once the 2nd gen of the 3DS comes around the 3D experience will be a lot more in tune to what people will assumingly expect from the 3D feature. 1+ follow

  11. 3D is interesting.. the problem is that I'm not much into portable gaming.. It miss HDMI port xD and most importantly it needs something interesting to play.. there is nothing worth the buy right now....

    That might change later tho, when cave story 3d will be released :D

  31. Nice review!

    Been selling these the last couple days... somewhere between 30 and 40 (of 250ish) have been returned with BSoDs, so wouldn't exactly encourage people to get one straight away, wait for the next batch maybe.

  32. me and my girlfriend can't decide if we want to get some of these or not.

    AntwortenLöschen
  33. The resolution is halved when 3D is on, right?

    AntwortenLöschen
  34. I kind of had an idea as to what the 3DS would be like after seeing Coraline in 3D. I felt like God looking down into a world of puppets, not like I was at a movie with cheap thrills popping off the screen. the 3D is Coraline was all about depth, and that is what I have imagined the 3DS to be about as well. based off this review I can see that's what was developed. I look forward to having an extra $250 to spend on a truly revolutionary gaming system, and of course "hax."
