The 3DS had been dormant for a bit lately, but Out Run has successfully got me reaching for it often again. The 3D effect is surprisingly good. Almost makes me want to go out and get a N3DS so I don't lose it from time to time! The new songs are a perfect fit for the game. It's awesome they burned a sound ROM and played it through an original arcade board to get the recording for iTunes/Amazon mp3s. I think Cruising Line is right up there with Splash Wave, my favorite of the original 3. I can't go back to playing the game in 30fps after actually seeing the difference. Well.... maybe for old times sake!

Probably a good fake, but Reddit found a TTYD 3D video... Even if is a fake, this is encouraging. DKCR was darn good on 3DS, more revamps like this would be amazing:

I sold my 3DS before Christmas in prep for the N3DS. I think I am going to pick one up this week along with Xenoblade. I never had a chance to play it on the Wii.

I didn't realize that they brought NES Remix to 3DS, but got that today as a platinum reward. Drives me absolutely crazy that for the Mario stuff they force me to use B and A instead of the better Y and B control scheme. Seriously, I know we've talked about that before in this forum in regards to virtual console stuff, but seriously you would think the people who came up with the still-in use controller layout would realize that the way that puts both buttons under your thumb works far better.

Nintendo's insistence on matched button lettering, over actual comfort and playability, is why I have no interest with the Virtual Console on the 3DS (I'd of supported the Game Gear section, since that one does feature button customization, but Sega never actually released something like their 8 bit Ristar port that I'd of actually wanted).

There are a good 7 or 8 Game Boy games here that I'd love to have on the much larger screen of these XL models compared to my backlit Game Boy Advance SP, but the button mapping is too terrible.

I saw this a year or so ago and bookmarked it. It pretty well illustrates why this is such a problem.



Amazing that for some people, they're able to work around that with something like a Super Mario Brothers platformer.

Sadly, it almost was a non-issue, as this scan showing a prototype Super Famicom controller demonstrates (Note where the A & B buttons are; and I've seen later prototype images with C & D renamed to X & Y, before they completely rearranged the layout to what we've used since 1991).



Two button Nintendo games would've translated with their button designations and playability intact to four button Nintendo platforms, had they stuck to that layout.

Apparently there's an undocumented trick I didn't know about that they use to work around this in NES Remix. Instead of making it configurable in this game, they ALSO map the NES B button to X on the 3DS, giving you the better feel. It's not quite as good as B and Y, because the A button is a little close to the edge of the 3DS, but it's still better.

Besides the button issues with Ultimate NES Remix, I was reminded of another problem today while checking out a New 3DS. For a fair number of people, myself included, the low d-pad placement on the 3DS is a real issue in releases such as this one.

It's sadly a bit too low for me to be entirely comfortable with, a complaint I've seen others voice from time to time. As a result, if I had a game such as this one on the 3DS, I'd pretty much rely on the analog circle pad as a result. And that's a control method that isn't as ideal for a release such as this one that was built with precise 8 way digital control in mind.

Traded some old games for in-store credit (66$ for GTA5 PS3 and other oldies like Prince of Persia, NHL08 and 13, etc) in my local store... but they only have the old N3Ds

Guess I'll pick a N3DS somewhere else and use those credit for 3DS games, since they rarely go on sale anywhere.

Closer to my quest of not forking any $ to get the N3DS (50$ free GC and now 66$ store credit!)

Picked up xenoblade chronicles. Probably only played the original on the wii for 30 minutes or so.

The 3d on it is very well done so far.

3D Thunder Blade is now out for the 3DS.

It's currently the last arcade game slated for Sega's 3D Classics line, although some new Genesis conversions just were confirmed recently. It's the arcade material that excites me though, so it's sad to see what's hopefully only a temporary conclusion to it.

So I'm now a new proud owner and I can't wait to replay OoT and MM (I bought them months ago before the 3DS).
