Actually I'm still using that $150 I talked about in my graduation thread for this :P Not from my parents though. My parents got a new T-Mobile contract and I got an HTC One S out of it thanks to the Father's Day sale. That was basically their graduation present, though unintended at first.

Wait... you have an HTC One S? :0

Good for you. I hope you enjoy your time and Penn State. College is pretty enjoyable, but afterwards (once job is obtained) life gets a lot more interesting imo.


Thanks.

Obviously meant to enjoy your time at Penn State. I still make silly grammatical errors. College hasn't changed that.

Yeah. I basically got it for free since during the Father's Day sale you can pick any phone and get the money back in mail-in rebate. My parents still have to pay for a data plan though.

lol, nice.




Just got my 3DS in the mail a while ago. Friend code is 3952-8175-8161.




My 3DS FC is 0216-1095-1009.  Grats on the cheap 3DS deal.  Hopefully it is in mint condition or at least no scratches on the screens.  Download Swapnote and I can send you all the stationery that you missed out on (they sometimes give out new stationery that you get through online like Mario Tennis, NSMB2, etc...


I can't wait for MH4 either and it better be online because I enjoyed playing MH3 a lot online.  Looking forward to Paper Mario, NSMB2, Luigi's Mansion, and many more.  I am also thinking about getting Heroes of Ruin no matter what the critics say.  I'll fiddle around with the demo and look at more vids before reading any review or care what the score is.

Not mint but close. Very minor scratches on the back. Screen is pretty much flawless.

I'll add you once the RE demo is finished downloading. What are stationeries? Are they just messages?

Anyway, some thoughts on it:

The 3D is pretty cool. I think my parents were more impressed by it than me, lol. I think I'd prefer a 3DS XL because of the bigger screen, but I got this 3DS for $100 cheaper so I guess I can't complain too much lol. Maybe if there's a REALLY good trade-in deal, I'll trade but I doubt it.

I like the gloss finish. I know people note how the XL has a matte finish but I like the finish fine.

Features are OK. Face Raiders is hilarious. The web browser needs some flash support.

I think what surprised me the most was the sound quality that came out of the speakers. I didn't expect it to sound that loud or that clear. I checked out the RE videos on the eShop and the sound was really good. Waiting to see how the game itself sounds when playing.

Oh, and the KH demo was awesome, though really short. Is there any reason why the demos have a certain number of available uses to begin with? They already give you a bunch and show such a small amount of the game that it's pointless.




The stationery I was talking about is with Swapnote. In Swapnote you can write simple messages or draw and send them to friends. The default one is just blank/white. There are ones that show your Mii happy or sad and various other settings (like underwater). They aren't that big of deal but pretty neat and they send out unique ones every once in awhile (sometimes just for certain regions but if you have friends in those regions and they send you a note with that stationery then you get to use it yourself. You can unlock more with play coins also. Pretty much you should download Swapnote (it is in the App section of the e shop).

Sometimes I feel the speakers are lacking.  I believe it is more with certain types of games or video.  Sometimes it just seems louder while other times I have a hard time hearing (mainly when playing music from the music channel).  I suppose I just want to crank my music up even more but the speakers seem most lacking when trying to play sound from the music channel for me.  The games and videos on the Nintendo Video channel (another channel you should download because there are some really neat videos, not sure if it comes pre installed) have good sound though.
