Picross 3D (Nintendo DS) discussion [game]
Picross 3D on the DS
8.63/10 from 14 user ratings

Welcome to the official discussion thread for Picross 3D on the DS!

To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!

I am so excited for Picross 3D coming out tomorrow (though technically tuesday). Who else is excited for this?

I don't know the likelihood of this thread sticking around but I figure people can share their opinions and tips and such if any here in a few days. I don't know how the "create a puzzle" thing works but maybe we'll be able to aid in sharing puzzles with each other via this too.

Can't wait! I might not pick it up right away though -- I'm finishing up Picross DS right now (currently in level 4 of Free Mode) and Best Buy has a coupon for $5 off the game valid in two weeks.

But I'll probably still pick it up :p

Oh then you wont be done for a while. Picross DS has a ton of puzzles and then there's an insane number of great downloadable puzzles. Hundreds. Do those too. I haven't checked in a long time since I finished them all but they should still be up for download.

I wish Nintendo would continue releasing the 2D puzzles or just put out a whole new sequel. I'd be in instantly.

Yeah, I'm not done with the 2D version, but I'll probably get this anyway. The demo was pretty easy, but no more so than early 2D picross puzzles.

This is gonna be $20 again, right?

Yessir! $20 bucks!

I'll definitely be buying Picross 3D this week. I'll be back once I have the game to post my friend code so that we can start sharing our created puzzles.

I'll have to actually buy this one while it's still in print. Finding a new copy of the 2D game for less than $30 isn't easy.

Getting it tomorrow, assuming they have it in. They've been pretty good lately at getting games on shipping date, Nintendo published or not.

Who's they? Like retailers in general? Or Nintendo with their games?

The sunday Target ad said they'd have em' in by Tuesday at 4pm... which frustrates me because I will be busy as hell tuesday. It'd be nice to find a copy tomorrow. I'll call Gamestop and Best Buy in hopes they have them in. I was actually at Target today and they have a spot already out for it, labeled Picross 3D and everything. Maybe I can get lucky and they'll have it in. Who knows. But I'm about to start a busy week of Production Assisting a new reality show of NBC's, and well... I don't wanna wait days to be able to play this game I've wanted for so long. Just an hour with it would hold me off!!!

Wal-Mart or EB usually... because that's all I have to shop for games. Well to be fair, FFXIII was probably to be expected on release date. I got SSFIV on the same day too... okay maybe there's not many recently. STOP CRUSHING MY DREAMS!
Posted: 05/03/10, 06:45:17

Wal-mart... good idea. I'll call them in the morning.

I never finished the 2D one either. I'm so backlogged that I'm not in a rush to pick up the game, and $5 off in 2 weeks sounds good to me.

Where I can I find the $5 off coupon? Money is tight, but $15 for a game like this?

Well, there's a thread on Cheap Ass Gamer that says there will be a $5 off coupon for Reward Zone/Gamer's Club members from May 16 through June 5. I haven't actually seen the coupon, but I did see an ad for the May Reward Zone deals here:

I'm assuming the coupon will be available in two weeks. I doubt you have to be a member to be able to use the coupon, but if so, it's free so it's worth it. If you don't, then I'm sure it'll be available online (or I can email you a copy or something).

Mine's on the way from Amazon. I should have it this week. Hooray Picross!
Posted: 05/03/10, 14:32:54

I don't plan on finishing all of the downloadable puzzles yet, but assuming Free Mode is about as long as Normal Mode (10ish levels) then I should be able to finish it pretty quickly. I've been playing it like crazy and I still am :p

Besides, having that to distract me makes that two week wait (to save $5) easier to stomach.

I do really want to pick it up today or tomorrow though. Based on the demo, it's just as addicting as regular Picross.

Just called EB, they have it in. Will pick it up later this afternoon!

Which EB is it? I called a Wal-mart and my Gamestop in the SE Michigan area and nada. I wonder if it's because I'm EST. Don't games generally get shipped from the west coast? Is that where their centers are, or am I just nuts. I'll try my EB though I'm thinking they wont have it.

Cool, thanks! I'm a B.B. rewards member. I think I can wait 2 weeks. I'll try to finish up Bowser's Inside Story in the meantime.

For anyone who hasn't yet, DOWNLOAD the demo off the Nintendo Channel. Its short, but gives you a good idea of what to expect.

Some hands-on impressions from Nintendo World Report. Sounds neat, I didn't know about the medal system.
Posted: 05/03/10, 21:18:04

Well I'm in the Atlantic region which is even more east than you :p I'm in Canada though if that makes any difference. Nintendo games usually arrive here faster and I now have my copy sitting next to me... last copy too! Out of probably one copy I'm sure :p
