Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
Definitely getting the new Street Pass games, although I don't carry around my 3DS anymore (maybe this will change that).

Looking forward to finally getting to try DK 64. Also, is there ever not an Atlus sale going on the 3DS eShop?

I would love to try A-Train 3D, but I'll probably hold off on that for a bit so as not to give myself an even heftier backlog than I've already got.

My poor 3DS hasn't been turned on in literally weeks/months. I feel sad about it, but I need to fix by thumb pad that is just a small nub now!

I don't know why but I'm really interested in "Yoshi's Springtime Siesta" theme, I mean.... spring, siesta, Yoshi, lots of good things in one theme.

Lol, I've been feeling the same way about it. I don't really want to spend money on themes, but that one's calling out to me.

Never played DK64. I've got $5 credit from my last digital download promotion. Think I'll give it a shot.

Fuck DK64. VC N64 games have been a complete rarity since 2006 and they blow the chance on THAT.

Part of me wants to give it another chance but the rational part knows not to waste my time with a horribly ugly game with awful music and the worst (or second worst) fetch questy gameplay known to man. Such an utter disappointment going from DKC 1 and 2 to THAT.

Bring on Turok 1, Pilot Wings, Goemon 64, Blast Corps, etc, etc.

Ps. I'm joking, but I'm not. I truly dislike DK64 and it was a huge disappointment. I remember how I had to hide my disappointment from myself as a kid.
