    I registered my new XL on Wednesday - still no email code.. Wondered myself how long I should wait, but I guess they've got loads to plow through, as all XL's were involved not just new ones....

    Did you register for the promotion as well?

    If you have just registered the console the same way you register a game, that won't do it- you need to click on the promotion to sign up for that too.

    I registered my XL on Tuesday afternoon and received my download code on Wednesday evening. It did say it could take a few days though so I wouldn't worry just yet.

    I'm guessing a Summer release for the West, probably August.

    Goes to show quite how crap the 3DS release schedule is when the first banner ads I've seen on here for a 3DS game in ages is out in bloody October.

    What game is that then (I've got adblock on)?

    I know Fire Emblem is out early next month, and Luigi's Mansion is due in March...

    I'm going to buy Fire Emblem and then pick up a 3DS XL cheap at some point I think.

    Fire Emblem is out in April in Europe, but we get both Monster Hunter 3 and Castlevania: Mirror of Fate before then.

    @Kay Pokemon X&Y. Reveal video splashed all over the site. "Coming Worldwide October 2013!"

    Can they at least confirm a date for Luigi's Mansion? I've had two pre-orders cancelled by retailers, partly due to the uncertainty of the release date.

    Fire Emblem isn't out until April in Europe... :(

    Ah, pretty sure I read in a preview it was due out in February in Europe. :(

    And I can understand Pokemon being advertised now, it's such a big game. It was only announced last week! Similar to the latest CoD having TV adverts in the summer. Plenty of other stuff due out in the meantime.

    Hmmm, really struggling for things to play on 3DS.

    I have PES, Mario Land and Resi Revelations. I'm getting towards the end of the special/Luigi levels in Mario Land (which, I must say, really is a terrific game. Don't always get on with mario games but this is top quality), have exhausted the excellent raid mode on RE and, well, don't really play PES anymore and without a master league I probably won't. I also have Gunman Clive which was excellent, but I won't be going back anytime soon.

    The only games I can think of I may want to get are Layton and Rhythm Thief. I cannot find either for under 30 notes though, and I just don't think I want to pay that much for a 3DS game (I very rarely even pay over 20 for an XBOX360 game). There's Luigi's mansion and Pokemon X in the future, but it's all pretty sparse. Any suggestions?

    For something that's sold 25m units in just under two-years it's shocking how little software there is to play.

    I'm sure some will cite the smart phone effect but I do wonder if it's because of the machine's slow-start. I do remember reading, in the early days, how developers were adopting a wait and see attitude. Hopefully we're now coming to the end of that 'non-development' cycle and we'll start seeing more games.

    @Luckyjim I'd just take an announcement or two!

    Pullblox and Fallblox are worth checking out. As are Denpa Men, Art of Balance, and Dillon's Rolling Western.

    Seek out some 2nd hand prices for retail games. Ocarina of Time, Theatrythm, Mario Kart 7 and Kid Icarus are all worth checking out. Pilotwings Resort and Star Fox 64 are good for 10 - 15 pounds.

    kingdom hearts is cheap in argos atm tales of the abyss is worth picking up and virtues last reward.

    Perhaps I should have added I detest (proper) RPGs. Tried the demo of KH and wasn't enticed. Thanks for the suggestions though. I may pick up Star Fox at some time, doesn't hugely excite me though...

    KH also leaves me cold. Have no affinity with Disney IPs. I actually find them quite nauseating. Tried many of the rest. Some excellent. Others ho-hum.

    Tales of the Abyss intrigues, though. Shame about the daft prices.

    My problem with the 3DS is for such high-selling console it's devoid of announcements and updates. Nintendo need to pull their finger out.

    And the Vita gets a hard time for 'having no games'. I guess you can argue the 3DS has more games capable of selling a system on its own; your Mario/Zelda types.

    That said, I'm considering rejoining the 3DS scene and getting an XL just for Fire Emblem.

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the 3DS, it just doesn't have the sense of buzz the DS did. Maybe times are a-changing. :cry:

    Try Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars if you like turn-based tactics games.
    Also Dead or Alive: Dimensions is a pretty good brawler.
    FF Theatrhythm is good if you like rhythm games- it's not really a JRPG, ultimately you are still just collecting points to unlock stuff.

    For action games, Kid Icarus is worth a look, and maybe Castlevania, that's out on 8th March. Some people like Shinobi but I just couldn't get into it. If you've never played OOT, that's worth a go too.

    @redcrayon Yeh, I may have a little look at Icarus/Shinobi. Demo of DoA actually quite impressed me, but I can't really see myself playing it all that often.

    Played Oot on GC and just never got on with it. Really don't understand why people like the game so much.

    3DS started so strong, with MK7, SM3DL and OoT within the first six months. I also bought Tales of the Abyss in Sweden and then Kid Icarus, but since then, nothing. Not a sausage.

    Luigi's Mansion/Layton/Monster Hunter/Animal Crossing/Pokemon can't come soon enough. If I didn't have the ambassador games I'd be looking to sell now.

    @Luckyjim Tales of the Abyss is 19.99 on Zavvi at the moment, I was hovering over it this morning until I realised how much other stuff I have to play.

    It's also out of stock ('we'll send it when our supplier does') meaning the chances of it ever shipping from Zavvi are beyond slim.

    Tales of the Abyss is good, but in my opinion it's not on a par with either the original Symphonia or Vesperia. Don't lose any sleep over not playing it.

    Why not get PES 2012 or PES 2013 as both have master league. I have 2012 and it is excellent. Worth second hand, think CEX have it for 8.00 at the moment.
