Nintendo definitely isn't struggling when it comes to 3rd party developers.
Yea, that's what I originally thought too. But lately I keep seeing all of these idiots on the gaming websites claiming that Nintendo has few good third party games. I guess there are quite a few, but I'm kinda mixed about how I feel. I don't really pay attention to console gaming (I'm a PC ), so I don't really have a good comparison to the Xbox or PS3. The most notable ones I've seen are

Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater 3D
Bit Trip Saga
Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy
Cave Story 3D
Tales of the Abyss
Resident Evil Revelations
Dead or Alive Dimensions
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition

And maybe a few others. I find a lot of the 3DS games are either ports of games in 3D, or enhanced versions. There are a number of solid original titles, but I feel like there still a whole lot of room for improvement.

Sold LEGO Pirates, Dead or Alive, and Starfox 64 today. Can't say I really enjoyed any of them. Grabbing Kid Icarus when I get a chance. Picked up 3 games for the 360 instead today.

I traded in my 15-month old 8GB 6th gen. iPod Nano today as well. I paid $115 for it brand new. Turns out, it's worth more than a 3DS now. I got $80 for it. Got the 3DS last May for $250. It's worth $70 now with the Ambassador games.

I've really liked Kid Icarus. I really haven't enjoyed a DS or 3DS game in a long time, so it's a nice treat.

At a game store right? They don't count the games towards the price because they wipe the system removing everything on it. You'd get a lot more money selling on eBay or Craigslist, etc. They've been selling for (on average) $132-$140 on eBay- most of them aren't ambassador systems though.

That makes sense. A lot of people don't want to deal with eBay and PayPal though, including me.

In any case, I don't think I'll be selling it. Eventually, there'll probably be quite a few awesome games for the system. Meanwhile, I still need to get a move on with my current games.

Getting this for my gf today for our 3-year anniversary next week: http://www.gamestop.com/nintendo-3ds...-3d-land/97727

More reason to keep mine I guess.

I just hit the 600 hour mark. I'm proud of my 3DS, and I don't seem to be getting tired of it at all. For some reason, the Vita I got tired of already

Also for some reason, despite being really excited for it and thinking it was the Sin & Punishment of the 3DS, I am already sick of Kid Icarus: Uprising, despite only putting in 14 hours. I hope eventually I will start enjoying it again, but at the moment I am pretty tired of it.

That could also be because I played so much StarFox, though. I'm not sure.

Recently I've been playing Revelaitons [sic] a lot, and Raid Mode has been home to that rebirth of gameplay

Pilotwings Resort has also been getting some more game time from me lately. I stopped playing cold-turkey a while ago, when I got 100% Free Mode stuff, but now I am remembering why I loved the game so much

Aaaaaaaaaand finally, I saw my Nintendog, Ammy, again, after a nearly one-year hiatus, and she was happy to see me. Not kicking dirt in my face like Nintendogs used to do. I felt bad though... she was so dirty

I'm kind of regretting selling Starfox now. Not sure why I sold a first-party title. Will grab a new copy of it once it goes on sale. Not sure when that'll be though since none of the first-party titles have done so yet. Getting Kid Icarus tomorrow. Will post back after I've tried it. Debating whether to get my gf MK7 or SML with the red 3DS, lol..

you should get her MK7 so you guys can do multiplayer. If you still haven't bought it go to target I'm pretty sure they have the 3DS for $145 then you can pick up the game separate for a total of $185. If you want to spend a little extra pick her up a 20 dollar gift card to gamestop to help her next purchase or pick her up kid icarus at best buy for only $30 and have a grand total of $215

I was thinking about getting her MK7 for the same reason. I asked her last night which game she liked playing better on my 3DS between the two, and she said SM3DL -__-. I'll probably just end up getting her the package with the 3DS and the game. I just think it's silly how my brother, her, and me will now have three copies of the same game between us. I don't know if she'd be interested in Kid Icarus. Getting it for myself today though when I go grab her present in an hour.

The controls in KI:U are so damn precise. It definitely hurts my hand after a while though. Loving it so far. Can't wait to try out the multiplayer. Like it a lot more than Starfox 64. Giving my gf her present before I head back to Austin in a few hours!
