    The New 3DS has improved 3D functionality. The OG 3DS required you to look at it dead on, the new one has eye tracking so you can tilt the 3DS if you want. I still don't use the 3D as I find it gimmicky and you end up with <30fps in some games. I only got the N3DS because I wanted the MH4U N3DS.

    I goddamn just want to play Ocarina Of Time HD... but not on the 3DS. If I could connect this bad boy to a TV and play, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Touch screen menus on Ocarina/Majoras are game changers, impossible to go back. I'm slogging through Bravely Second undub version currently (and Final Fantasy VII emulated).

    Ah you mean the second half of the game where you have to repeat some sections.

    It's actually not as bad as you think -

    You are so much higher in level
    You can use the in-built Fast Forward for battles
    Makes it easy to get all jobs/skills learnt on every character and level 99
    The battle system is just plain fun

    I didn't know anything about it beforehand so just took it as part of the story, was fun to see the online reactions after I finished lol.

    Nice, I have been trying to find Spirit tracks but that one is so inflated in price now and hard to find.

    Been playing Link Between Worlds which is really good.

    Been trying to find them but people are asking so much for them

    I have been limiting myself to maximum $20 for a 3DS/2DS game depending on its rarity.

    Homebrew on a New 3DS (not regular 3DS - needs the faster CPU of the new model) will stream to a TV over network. But the framerate isn't great, and I suspect there'd be lag (I haven't tried it myself, but it's on the list to do).

    There are hardware mods for all models of 3DS to stream to HDMI, but AFAIK the service is only offered out of Japan. I'm not sure if there are local modders who can do it. All of the Twitch streamers use that method, as it lets them keep their 3DS consoles 100% legal (not blocked from the eShop), and lets them capture full digital 60FPS lag free as they play.

    It is a damn shame that OOT remake is 3DS only. It's an overhauled engine with native 60FPS and much nicer to look at than the N64 original (even with the 3DS's low 400x240 res display). Nintendo need to bring it to Switch stat.

    AM2R is magic. 320x240 4:3 native, it looks AMAZING on a CRT (640x480 on a PC CRT is a perfect 2x scale).

    But ignoring that, it's a stunning attempt at modernising the game. I prefer it way over the Nintendo official remake, which feels uninspired by comparison.

    Music in the Nintendo one is great, but so is AM2R. Graphics and gameplay go to AM2R hands down.

    Play it on a controller with rumble (XBox controllers work well) for a nice surprise.
