[b]Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward[/b] I'm fond of this one as well, but I hesitated to mention it, partially because I played it on Vita and partially because it comes with a lot of caveats. Like...if you didn't play 999, you should at least read about it and it's hardly a game at all...mostly a visual novel with some scattered puzzles and altogether mediocre presentation. But if you're cool with that, once it grabs you, it doesn't let go. [QUOTE]Anyway, excellent list. The only thing I think is lacking is Sonic Generations. I know is made by Dimps and has nowere the quality of the home version, but has different levels, special stages and bosses and overall is not a bad game. A bit short but well paced, if you overcome some aspects (like the homing attack for classic Sonic) you'll find a decent platformer with some hints at past eras.[/QUOTE] Huh! Maybe I'll pick this up. I was saddened by the mediocre reviews the WiiU Sonic game got and I am absolutely crazy about Sonic Generations. Maybe the 3DS version will fill the hole in my heart. (I mean, I don't know that I won't like the WiiU Sonic, but it sounded like every other 3D Sonic excluding Generations, meaning that it had its high points and it has a lot of lows) [QUOTE] [s]Shin Megami Tensei IV[/s]Etrian Odyssey IV/Untold: Millenium Girl Depending on your taste, either one of these dungeon crawlers will keep you busy on end. Wonderful customization, devious layouts, It's a hard game, but never unfair. Plus it has those elements of "fill in the blanks with your head" approach to story.[/QUOTE] SMT4 certainly is a letdown if you want dungeons! The environments were fun to explore, but I mean...really, nothing at all like the other games in the series. However, if you [i]aren't [/i] looking for dungeons like crazy, you certainly wouldn't want Etrian Odyssey. [QUOTE]However, I am torn about one thing. Which version should I get? The Japanese one, the European, the American...? Because I just assume that there is no way to break the region-lock on the console, right?[/QUOTE] I second the recommendation for a Japanese system, though I have both and I don't regret that decision. One thing to keep in mind is that you can use a foreign credit card to purchase/DL games from any store. Ah, that sounds confusing. Let me clarify...you can purchase games from the store of the REGION THAT YOU OWN with a credit card that does not match that region. So if you [i]did[/i] get a US or European system, you wouldn't have to import (most) games. I buy Japanese games on my Japanese system and US games on my US system with the same credit card. [b]3DS vs 3DSXL/LL[/b] I'm adding this to the discussion because it's an issue for me. I own both a 3DS and an XL and I prefer the normal 3DS because it displays at its native resolution. Most people would tell you that the XL looks "even better" (somehow) and that there is no loss in graphic fidelity. I am extremely sensitive about this issue and while I don't expect anyone else to be, I wish that someone with my level of sensitivity had told me this all the same. In terms of construction, I feel that there are ups and downs to both systems and while I don't by any means recommend [i]against[/i] an XL (which most people prefer), you still might want to take a look at both of them. Normal 3DS systems are cheaper, too.
