    I think they need to get back to the basics. They have added too much pointless stuff and too many Pokemon no one would ever want to have. Ever since the terrible game that was Pokemon Snap I have wondered why there hasn't been a proper 3D (three dimensions, not stereoscopic) adventure game. Think a slowed down version of Pokemon, more emphasis on exploring/adventure/development. Something in which training your Pokemon differently can actually have an effect etc. There needs to be a bit of strategy and skill brought into battles then you could have an awesome online system.

    Mario definitely. Zelda might be a bit complicated; buy it for yourself instead :p
    You might also consider Tetris; its pretty age agnostic.

    Just picked one up yesterday with Heart Gold and OoT3D. Loving it so far, can't decided if I'll get Platinum or Black/White

    Well, are they just going to be Rehash's of White/Black, IE Like Emerald to Ruby/Sapphire? Or a whole new story?

    Kid Icarus: Uprising reviews are starting to appear. The news is mixed. Destructoid tear the game to pieces for having shoddy controls yet in Japan, Famitsu awards it a perfect score. Ho hum. Must try it somewhere and decide for myself.

    On the bright side, Amazon has Radiant Historia back in stock :D

    Same region, same bas pokemon... presumably the same gyms/gym leaders.

    But you aren't going to keep your old pokemon... I don't get it to be honest!

    WTF is a 6 year old doing playing Skyward Sword?

    Sigh. I'd suggest Mario Kart, but it sounds like you're more likely to buy Mortal Kombat.

    Ties links between Mortal Kombat and a kids RPG. Clearly insane.

    I'm noticing more and more information about Kingdom Hearts 3DS filtering through... This was the game I got my 3DS for originally.... it's looking to be a REALLY nice game (I wonder if it can live up to the quality of Chain of Memories for the PSP?)

    Seeing all the information about it online and the screencaps i'm starting to regret selling my 3DS now... It should be interesting to see on release. Darn shame I don't know anyone who owns a 3DS so I can borrow it for a while to test out the new game (I don't hold much hope for it though as 365/2 and Re:Coded both suffered from awful camera which made the game very frustrating to play)

    My poor 3DS. Getting no love now or in the forseeable future. Unless you count Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is the only game with a confirmed US release date that I'm intending to purchase but thats pure fanboy right there as apposed to love for the platform ;)

    Revelations tanked sales wise too so I look forward to playing the game again on PS360/Vita/whatever.

    Nope... not really.

    I'm surprised they don't have anything like the original pokemon games on there. I'd totally buy red.

    Huh? eShop Virtual Console is full of old games. GB classics like Zelda, Mario Land 2, Kirby, Metroid, Bionic Commando, Megaman, Gargoyle's Quest, Donkey Kong... argh!! Not to mention the awesome NES games on offer. I could play Excitebike all day :p

    Look at that list! It's full of gold. Just not Pokemon :p
