This game, combined with a long flight home in two months, has piqued my interest in the 3DS. I'm now about 98% sure that I'm going to buy a 3DS XL by November. I haven't owned a Nintendo handheld since the GBA SP. Zelda's are going to be a definite buy, as will Pokemon Y (or X). Any other suggestions? How often do you find yourself using your 3DS compared to other consoles? Do you reach for it when it's just as easy to pick up an Xbox or PS controller? Or is it strictly a niche purchase? I'm aware of the *new* 3DS that is coming out after the first of the year, but the timing doesn't match with what I primarily want the 3DS for.
Anyone here buy any amiibo yet? I picked up Mario (figured he'd be useful in the most games), Wii Fit Trainer (because I find the idea funny) and Link (I needed something to put me over the edge for free shipping and my wife likes Zelda games).
