Well, we're finally getting some honest-to-goodness games this month, so I'll let you know. Unlike everybody else, my 3DS has been in constant rotation. I logged about 60 hours on Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor: Overclocked. It used the 3D almost not-at-all, being a port from a previous game. Zelda was great and the 3D was nice. I have plenty of DS games to play, so it wasn't like it's a wasteland...but they're not 3D games.
I downloaded Pyramids, but found it wanting, though the 3D isn't bad. I'd like to get Bit Trip Saga, but will probably have to order it online. And with Super Mario 3Dland and Mario Kart 7 about to drop, it's not likely I'll grab it soon. Nintendo Power's review of Shinobi made it sound good, not great. Pokemon Rumble Blast sounds like a downloadable game sold at full price. My wife will probably want Doctor Lautrec and I need to get the new Professor Layton.
There are a few DS games I still want to play through, as well. I have Ghost Trick but haven't tried it, yet, for example. The fact is that there are only now getting a bunch of good 3DS titles, but there are still a lot of good DS titles I haven't played yet.
