I Now Have a 3DS

 Despite feeling a little under the weather I did get a great treat today at my doorstep. My 3DS had finally arrived. While I got the DS almost at launch, I waited a good bit for the 3DS. And I got a great deal too.
 I do like the more metallic look of the system. I'm little embarrassed to use my blue DSi in public. 
 I do find it a little strange using the circle pad. But I'll get used to it. I know it doesn't make much sense to have a joystick on a console. This is basically the same alternative the PSP used. 
One of reasons why I wanted a 3DS was for the Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and GBA games. Until I learned that the controls can't be changed.. So if the original game used A and B, then it's the same on 3DS. Doesn't matter with puzzle games, and RPGs, but it makes Mario a lot harder. Until this gets fixed (which I doubt) I'll guess I'll be sticking to the newer content.

Congrats on the 3Ds. My kids love theirs, although the only problem is that they can't play Minecraft on it:)
