I've never owned a handheld video game system in my entire life. My family wasn't very well off, and we could never afford them, though we did end up with a Sega Genesis, N64, and a Gamecube. Most of those were because my dad worked for Blockbuster Video back in the day, and then worked/works at a Sam's Club, and got them on the cheap. Also, the Gamecube came with Wind Waker and was a birthday present for all three of us in one go, so I guess it was affordable that way?
Maddison and I own a Wii, because I have a job of my own and my own finances and I bought it on ebay. It is delightful, and now that we live on our own again, we've been playing it and I've almost beaten Skyward Sword finally.
But a few months back, she bought herself a 3DS, and I bought her Animal Crossing New Leaf for her birthday. It took her a few weeks after I gave it to her for her to get into it, but once she did, she never puts it down. And at Brickcon everytime a boring speaker came on, her, Becca, Micah, and a few others would all pop their 3DS' out and play. I am out of the loop!
Or was. Fred Meyer was having a sale the other day, so I bought myself a black 3DS XL. And Maddison promptly returned the favor and bought me Animal Crossing. I am the proud mayor of a town called Cepia! I feel kind of like I cheated though, since I promptly visited Maddison's town and picked up a ton of different fruits and she gave me a fishing rod, an umbrella with Spider-web print, an axe, and a bunch of other random stuff. But I'm having a lot of fun, and I made my own flag for my town. It is the Hero of Light symbol from Homestuck. Spoilers. I am a dork.
So hey, if you want to be 3DS friends, let me know, and it could be a thing.
Right now, all I have is Animal Crossing New Leaf, but I have a list of things to attain. Amongst them:
- Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
- Zelda: OoT 3D
- LEGO Marvel Superheroes
- A Pokemon game (I guess X or Y?)
- The Smash Bros game when it comes out
- Maybe a Mario game?
IDK what else, but I've never been a huge gamer and that amount of games right there is like "woah, look at that way too many games you could never play all of those slow down buster" kind of thing to me. Other suggestions?
