    Promotion runs out on 30 June, not long to go now. Still need to pick up Fire Emblem and a third game (most likely DKCR).

    Also, didn't realise Animal Crossing was out so soon - June 14th! I assumed it was still months away, late summer or something.

    I'm impatient: just checked my account again and the banner is there this time \o/

    Now, what to choose...

    My daughter keeps bugging me about it. I told her when I claimed the free game and that was a few weeks ago now... Poor impatient child, takes after her dad ;-)

    I still need to pick up LM2 before I can get the free game from the promotion. Likely I'll choose Animal Crossing as the free game. Or maybe I should do it the other way round if AC is cheaper to buy?

    I was thinking about getting Animal Crossing as the free downloadable game, as it'll be the kind of game you'll always want in the cartridge slot. However, it's likely to be the biggest download of all the games, considering how much content there'll be.

    @Raiko

    8,192 blocks, apparently.

    I hear DKCR is more, though (~17,500 iirc)

    AC's a perfect download game for me as I'm likely to continually dip into it over the next year or so.

    It's one of the smaller titles actually. Animal Crossing is going to be my free downloadable title as well. Castlevania is a big one IIRC. Luigi's Mansion and Fire Emblem both reasonable.

    To anyone considering what free game to get... Animal Crossing is easily the best choice. It's the game you want a small dose of daily. Fire Emblem has little daily things as well and isn't too large. I opted for physical versions of Castlevania/Luigi/DKCR due to the nature of the games (they'll never change without you there).

    I have luigi mansion and will pick up fire emblem tomorrow. I think monster Hunter will make a decent free game due to the extreme longevity. Problem is nothing really appeals for the third game. Plus I am skint. Will probably see if I can buy a code off of someone who doesn't need.

    I think I'm going to go for Animal Crossing. I've never played an AC game before, but a mate of mine loves them, and this gives me a chance to try it out without splashing the cash.

    Yeah I'm really not sure which one to get. Should have DKCR at home tonight so along with Luigi's Mansion and Fire Emblem, need to decide on the last one.

    Tempted by Animal Crossing because people seem to love it, but it looks - to me - fucking terrible, so I feel like I'm missing something and figure I could try it as it's not costing me anything (other than the price of the three games I'd have bought regardless of the promotion) and none of the other games appeal hugely to me.

    DFawkes gave his opinion of the 3DS game in it's own thread a couple of weeks back. He's played both versions of the game and makes a pretty decent comparison between the two. It's definitely raised my interest in the 3DS version.

    It's a shame Paper Mario isn't part of this deal, as i'd have snapped that up instead. Will still be picking it up at some point in the future. Perhaps when I can actually afford to buy more than a game a month!

    @dudewheresmybrain There seems to be a bit of a delay with the third game registering and being able to choose which game you want, but I believe the code is provided pretty much instantly (unless the game's not been released yet).

    I haven't really started it yet but first impressions are that it's still nice and silly (in the best possible way), but the world feels a little sparse.

    Downloaded the Project X Zone demo, and it's a bit.... weird. I just totally mashed my way through the demo and just managed to win by the skin of my teeth. It appears to be a cross between Final Fantasy Tactics and a beat-em-up, which seems like a strange combination, but it does appear to work.

    I'll wait to see what the reviews say before deciding to purchase it or not, but I think it has promise!

    Wasn't going to get sucked into this but I bought Fire Emblem then someone borrowed the DS and bought Luigi's Mansion and left me the game. So now I can buy one get one free. Think it's going to be Monster Hunter then Animal Crossing seems the perfect downloadable title for the wife.

    Great idea from Nintendo, I'm also loving the fact that I have started to have a lot of titles installed on the DS, so I can carry it anywhere and not worry about games.

    Still waiting on the E-shop version of Cave Story, does anyone know when it's out?

    so I have a dilemma. I'm not going to have much money until after the promo ends, and have fire emblem and luigis mansion. I need to pick one to trade in, and with my time limited I probably won't have time to complete either. Decisions!

    @el_pollo_diablo I would have taken you up on that, but i've just suffered my first impulse purchase of 2013. Lego City Undercover on the Wii U. I was looking of footage for the 3DS version, which looked alright, but then I checked out the Wii U version again. I couldn't help myself.

    Pay day is tomorrow though, I suppose!

    Edit - How much would you be selling it for, out of interest?

    Not a Nintendo one. At least not going by the prices you get in CEX/HMV.
