I caved in and bought a 3DS yesterday afternoon. The library had gotten too strong; I could name more than ten games I wanted to play, which is plenty. Found a weekend Best Buy deal for This model 3DS
, which comes with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
automatically downloaded. It has a 30th Anniversary - Year of Luigi emblem on the bottom, heh. I also took advantage of a buy-1-get-1-free deal to pick up The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
and Kirby Triple Deluxe
. They were most definitely trying to clear out 2013 inventory with this sale, and I was happy to take advantage. THEN, apparently I wasn't done because I ordered a copy of Bravely Default
for $30 online that same afternoon.
Total haul: silver M&L 3DS XL + four games = $245. Not bad. I can keep eating well most nights with that. Mario & Luigi is pretty solid so far. The dream-platforming is silly/fun and the combat is just as good as the first three games. I *love* the Luiginary moves. Dreamy Luigi is the best.
