Personally I wouldn't spend that much on a Rarity whatever that is... However, I'm not as obsessed with the show as others are so I'll say my view on that is pretty irrelevant. Although I think that's a high price no matter what.

 

The 3DS? I'd get that. But not Ocarina of Time 3D. Because that's a waste of money. Get a NEW game that isn't just a remastered port like Super Mario 3D Land or Mario Kart 7.

Difficult choice, but I'd probably go with the 3DS and OoT. It was worth the money. B)

 

Don't listen to Envy, Shank, D1st0rted or LRP, they're just envious that you'll have Ocarina of Time.

Must... not... spelling... nazi...

 

In any case, I'd buy the rarity. The 3ds is a pretty bad handheld anyway IMO. I would just buy a PSP-1000. Much more fun at a much cheaper price. But if you do buy the 3ds, do not buy OoT. It feels really watered down from the original. Play the original on an emulator instead.

Except I own Ocarina of Time. Several times over. Including Ocarina of Time 3D.

How can you say the 3DS is a "pretty bad handheld" and then go and say that the PSP-1000 is not. I'm not hating on the PSP here or anything as I do own one. But the PSP really is not considered too highly as a handheld. The 3DS not only functions as a 3DS, but it also focuses as a DS, which is a very wide library of great games.

 

The 3DS may not be wonderful right now, but come on...

 

Also there's no reason to illegally download the game when you can easily attain it for any Nintendo home console N64 and beyond.

I also own multiple copies, all except the one in the collector's edition.

 

I don't see how it has been watered down though.

Well you'd might want to think of the long term.

 

The 3DS is a video game device with access to DSiWare, 3DSWare, DS games, and 3DS games, not to mention it's virtual console. It'll be something that, if you like video games, will be used for a long time.

 

The Rarity plushie might be fun for the first few minutes due to the novelty of it, but eventually will just end up on the shelf as a collectors item. If your into that, then go ahead, but it most likely won't give you the lasting appeal a 3DS would.

 

Also, if your a Zelda fan, I know there's a Zelda 3DS in Europe, but I have no idea of it's availability elsewhere.

 

Of course, in the end its your choice. Hope you enjoy whatever you decide to get! ;)

Sorry, didn't mean to offend anyone. I simply believe that an older psp or a ds lite would be a cheaper and better purchase. I enjoyed the PSP's game library more, and the 3DS doesnt seem to warrant the extra money over a DS lite. Simply a matter of opinion.

 

Oh, and I assumed that he didn't own a n64 and OoT, which aren't too easy to find and no longer fund the developers anyway.

 

But, in any case, what to pirchase ultimately comes down to if you're a collector or not. Because if you don't collect pony things, or things in general, there's no point in buying the plushie I s'pose.

I'm not the one claiming that it has been watered down.

It's fine that you prefer the library of the PSP. However, there's no point to buy an DS Lite at this point. The 3DS plays the DS games and more. The 3DS will likely be around for several years, and I can see many great games coming out of it.

However, it can be gotten on an Wii easily.

I'd go for the 3DS because of what Tom the Diamond said. I would never spend that much money on a plushie myself, really. I know nothing about Zelda games, but they seem cool, so I'd recommend the game as well. You can't play a plushie after all. And you could probably find one for a far cheaper price somewhere else. There's lots of plushies, but only one Nintendo 3DS with one price.

 

Like Envy though, I'm not as obsessive about the show. (Although I wouldn't spend that much money on a plushie no matter how much I liked the subject matter as well.)

I have the original DS, the clunky not fun one, and a Gameboy advance SP (my favorite one ever). I had Oot for game boy color but never finished it so I guess a Zelda remake would be kind of new for me but I liked the 8 bit ness. The only reason I guess I wouldn't buy a 3DS is that they might come out with something new in the next year or so.

I've heard a few things about the 3ds having bugs and needing updates all the time so I thought I'd ask and see what others thought of it.

I did consider the novelty of a Rarity plush wearing off pretty fast and I'm not a $100+ on anything usually but, she was soooooo cuuuuute (and she has a velvet mane) :D But she doesn't have Zelda... which is like the only game I really played. And I do kind of miss gaming...

Ocarina of Time wasn't on the GBC. It's an N64 game. So I'm assuming you played one of the Oracle games?

 

If you've never played Ocarina of Time before, than OOT3D actually isn't a bad purchase. It's not "watered down". It's just an graphically enhanced version of the original OOT, which was a really good game.

That will inevitably come out with a redesign, but there's never much of a reason to get them.

 

The updates that the 3DS have been recieving have been more of an issue that Nintendo didn't plan ahead of time, they haven't really fixed any bugs. There aren't many bugs to fix to begin with. The only issue I've had with my 3DS are little marks on the screen that can be wiped off really easily.

Wat? I think there's some confusion here. Oot, or Ocarina of Time was originally a Nintendo 64 game, NOT a Game Boy Color game. You are probably talking about either Oracle of Ages or Oracle of Seasons which were both for GBC.

 

OoT on the 3DS is a remake of the N64 game, which is completely different from Ooa and Oos. If you have never played it, I highly recommend it because despite its old age, that game is a classic and (imo) one of the greatest games ever created.

Now if you've already played the original game on N64, you might want to think twice before getting it on 3DS since it's pretty much exactly the same game but with updated graphics and 3D.

 

Whatever you do, DO NOT play it on an emulator. It totally ruins the experience.

 

As for the Rarity plushie, I reckon that it looks amazing. But 115$ is really expensive for a plushie.

 

If you're unsure, I suggest you wait and perhaps save the money for something else.

Since it has been raised I believe they have already planned a new model of the 3DS for release this year.

 

It has an extra analog nub.

 

I could be wrong about this though.

Well I can guarantee you that if you're going from a DS Phat to a 3DS, you'll definitely see the difference. For one it has a much nicer interface. And the ability to have downloaded titles.

 

And odds are if it's a first party game, and it'll end up on the eShop, so odds are you'll get to play this game in digital form on the 3DS soon. And while I'm not a Zelda fan, I'm 90% sure the 3DS one is a remake of the N64 one, not the GBC one.

 

Also, the 3DS doesn't have many bugs, at least I haven't encountered much. Worst I've seen is the screen freezes when our changing software, which is easily fixed by shutting the system down, and it rarely happens. Also, why are updates bad? Its great for the system to have updates. Not too long ago they had an update the made downloading titles much easier. Though its not all the time, just every once in a while.

 

And granted, while it is likely there will be an update, there really isn't much they'd change. Maybe add in the second analog stick, but that would be it. And that you can just use the add on, so think of it like a Wiimote, and a Wiimote with Motion +. It would be completely hardware related, and not software related, due to the 3DS's ability to get updates. So you won't have to worry about a DSlite-DSi jump.

That's not a new model. It's an add-on.

I know, hence the use of the phrase "peripheral device".

 

But I have heard rumours on other boards about a new model incorporating the extra analogue nub into it's design.
