That's pretty lucky as there's none in the country at the moment.

I managed to add Chibi Robo to my cart, but everything else I'm interested in (LBX and MH Stories) was out.

Didn't mention it here but I picked up Yokai Watch 2, Paper Mario Sticker Star and Wario Ware Gold for about £15 2 weeks ago. It's worth keeping an eye on.

I have 17 physical games for the system now and a bunch of digital stuff, it's an excellent handheld and I stil actually love the screen and the games look great.

Paper Mario is very close, in fact probably better in terms of presentation, to The Thousand Year Door on GC, if a bit more sparse and with map-based world traversal (but lots of intersecting things in the individual "zones").

I touched lucky grabbing MH Stories and LBX I think. Looking at my 3DS collection now I have 35 physical games on the system.

The library, especially when you take regular DS games into account, is an amazing line up of classics. I still play mine now (Beat Metroid: Samus Returns last month)

I play my 3DS all the time, especially since all the Argos offers - most of them got (almost) matched by ebay sellers who bought loads, and couldn't shift them because the market was saturated thanks to Argos.

I've nearly finished Picross 3d part 2, all puzzles (including post credits) on hard. Amazing game, I've had a huge amount of enjoyable time with it and it cost me under £7.

I've ended up getting a huge amount of 3DS games this year, since Argos did this silly sale at the start of the year. I've got well over 100 3DS games now, probably getting close to 150.

Some of the titles I've picked up from Argos include
Mario Sports Superstars
Bravely Second Limited Edtion
LBX
Teddy Together
Yokai Watch 2 Bony Spirits
Yokai Watch 2 Fleshy Souls
Yokai Watch Blasters
Yokai Watch 3
New Style Boutique 2 + 3
Mario + Luigi Bowsers Inside Story
Sonic Boom
Disney Magical World
Fire Emblem Warriors

Fantastic game. Murder By Numbers has distracted me from it, but i must admit i'm really missing the extra layer of thought that goes in to the 3D ones.

I mostly miss the puzzle completion animations from DS. They felt like an actual reward.

I have to agree with this - the little bit of descriptive text you 'unlock' each time is a bit pointless. I can't remember any exactly but they are a bit like:

"Train

Some people go on trains sometimes. They have wheels"

When I go to the listing it says, "please enter a quantity of 1 or more", then if I type 1 it says "please enter a lower number" :lol:

I think that's because it's only available at a very few 'collect in store' locations. Managed to snag Bravely Second for £2.49, got a bit of a drive to pick it up but not too far.

I got the Bravely Second special edition when the game first came out, the art book is gorgeous, it also came with a gorgeous figurine of Agnes. I've just seen the special ed on the argos website (in limited supply) for £3.99. Definitely worth the buy if you can get your hands on it.

Help I just cannot stop buying 3DS games. As well as picking up a copy of Bravely Second from Prototype (thanks again!), I just picked up Donkey Kong Country returns 3D and Samus Returns.
The 3DS will keep me going for years! I've never had so many unopened games for a console, lined up waiting for me to have time for them.

Best I can see is CEX has it for £32.00, if you got any bits to trade in that would help knock that down further)
