now waiting on my grades for the Spring semester. That is where I've been the past few weeks: work/school.
Thinking of buying a 3DS.
Impressions of 3DS with Street Fighter IV at a kiosk in a Nacogdoches,TX Gamestop:
You definitely have to get it at the right angle. For a while I was
tilting myself, since I assumed the kiosk was unmovable, until of course
the store clerk came by and said "Can I make a suggestion?" then pulled
it off the kiosk revealing a short cable attached to the 3DS. I still
feel a less douchey way of telling me this would have been simply saying
"you can pull that off the kiosk, it's not stuck to it like EVERY OTHER
PORTABLE SYSTEM YOU'VE EVER SEEN AT A RETAIL STORE" (seriously, I've
definitely looked like an idiot trying to get GameBoys and DSs off these
things at Wal-Marts, now I look like an idiot for NOT trying to get it
off; I think Nintendo's just fucking with me).
Anyway, the 3DS screens are about the size of my original DS at least
from memory, maybe slightly bigger. Not quite as excited for the
Netflix functionality now.
The 3D effect for SFIV basically shoves the setting further into the
background, but it also makes the character models seem smaller to me.
It is cool, but maybe not $250 cool.
The game itself is a prettier SFII. Not a bad thing, not a great
thing. I played in normal, not dynamic view, which is a feature offered
that puts your character at the edge of the screen and your POV directly
towards the opponent. Maybe I'd have dug the 3D more this way, I dunno.
Of course, these are all first impressions, so if you have a 3DS or
at least played with one for more than the one match I played as Ryu
against Sagat, tell me about it.
That's all for now.
