I also didn't realize the LTTP "sequel" for 3DS is coming out this fall either. I might have to keep that on my radar as well.
I want Mario World, DKC Sequel, and 3DS Zelda. Too bad the WiiU bundle isn't Mario World or I would be all over it.

I think my parents did it intelligently. We had our wish list and ranked our stuff. They let us know that we could get one big gift or a bunch of medium/little gifts. I usually asked for a new video game and then other random stuff.

My parents always got me a bunch of little things because they thought I would like to open more presents. They were wrong. I really just wanted the 1 nice thing.

Zelda 3ds is the only one that sparks to me.

My brother and me would get the "one big thing;" usually video game console or handheld. My sister didn't get those, so she was given a lot of small thing that never came close to the cost of the system + games we would get. She fell for it though.

So, is that what you are going to ask your parents for? Instead of the socks, underwear and pack of Magic the Gathering cards?

Also, the hinge is the most fragile part of the system. If it's aimed at younger kids, it will be more durable than the fold-up system.

I had not thought about that. I was just thinking about screen damage. I'm sure they'll sell some kind of screen protector though.

On a similar note, after 6 years, my DS Lite is still going strong. I can tell on the bottom screen where I've used the stylus frequently over time, but other than that it's like it is brand new. Still carries a long charge too (which is much, much more than I can say for my 4 year old Xbox 360 controller battery pack).

I've just started playing Crysis 1, easy level. I like it, but there's a lot for me to figure out still about surviving.
