Bought 3DS today

I bought a 3DS at Wal-mart at 8 AM today. Thinking it won’t matter about the price point, because it’ll be this this expensive this time next year.



I bought the only 8.0 out of 10 game out there!

I know when I saw the first screenshots of the RPG Beyond the Labyrinth, I knew I had to use that $100 gift certificate from Easter (as a present) for a 3DS. So I bought one. Beyond the Layrinth looks like a great RPG and I knew I could collect 22 8.0 out of 10 DS games in 6 years. That is more than my 17 PSP games. While at wal-mart, I noticed Crysis 2 was also overpriced at $60 (normally PC games are $50). I couldn't resist, I had to buy Crysis 2 also. The original Crysis was the main reason I upgraded to a Geforce 8800 GTX in 2006. I have a Radeon HD 5970 so I had to buy at least one game that was DirectX 11 before DirectX 11.1 comes out. I am quietly waiting for Unreal Engine 4 to come out that requires DirectX 11 in 2013 (long way off). Although it may not be as aweesome as it use to be in 2004 with Unreal Tournament 2004, Unreal Tournament 4 may be worth it for people in their twenties. I may be getting old.

There isn't much out there that I want, Sturgeon's Law says 90% out there is crap. 3DS and Crysis 2 looked like top 10% that wasn't the 90% that was no good.

I also want the super mario 3DS and Mario Kart 3DS.
