Amazing 2013 and now there's barely any games this year. There's Mario Golf and Kerby.. not exactly something to cream your pants about.

Nintendo's probably focusing on the Wii-U more right now.

#3 Posted by lundy86_4 (44033 posts) -

I wouldn't expect a 2013, but at least wait until we are a majority of the way through the year.

I've creamed my pants for Kirby before.

It's still there.

It's there, slowed down, but there.

Getting more games than the Vita.

I barely played it last year...

#9 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

Somebody forgot about Bravely Default.

Nintendo's busy burying the WiiU as fast as they can.

There's a bit more games out and coming out for 3DS 2014.

It's just there isn't much to hype up about (unless you're European then you should and still be playing Professor Layton X Wright).

2014 for 3DS is

  1. Bravely Default
  2. Yoshi's New Island
  3. Kirby Triple Deluxe
  4. Super Smash Bros
  5. Mario Golf World Tour
  6. Professor Layton X Ace Attorney
  7. Shantae and The Pirates Curse
  8. Conception II
  9. Persona Q Shadow of the Labyrinth
  10. Shovel Knight
  11. Treasurenauts
  12. Inazuma Eleven
  13. Professor Layton and The Azran Legacy
  14. Azure Striker Gunvolt

And Somethings that may not have been announced yet. Other wise it's a solid year, but I think people are more focused on PS4, One, and WiiU right now than 3DS.

2013 was more of a "wake up" year that the 3DS is an awesome machine. Also we had Fire Emblem, Shin Megami, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon that year.

It had a good, overrated 2013 and now a barren 2014.

#13 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (26096 posts) -

@Blabadon: oh you just mad that Vita was weak that year.

#14 Posted by mems_1224 (48145 posts) -

Yup, looks like I wont have to break it out all this year. More time to focus on PS4 and Xbone then I guess.

Nintendo is actually planning on killing off the Wii-U and starting all over with a new system.

If youre going to throw out stuff like that its pretty much just pathetic rumor unless you provide links that confirm that.

So come on, show us links where Nintendo said that exactly.

Wii U has a better lineup than 3DS this year, but did you just mention Kirby and a crappy Mario spinoff on that sentence? :/

#22 Posted by Seabas989 (10769 posts) -

3DS line up last year was ridiculously excellent.

But yes the great 3DS does have higher standards compared to the other systems out now that have underwhelmed.

Mine is collecting dust, its an amazing dust collector.. the next game i'll play on it will be whatever poekmon game releases this year.

#25 Edited by CountBleck12 (4050 posts) -

I actually have yet to play anything on mine, kind of sad but I'm waiting for the new Kirby game.

#26 Edited by AcidTango (727 posts) -

I just want Dragon quest VII to be released for us Non-Japanese 3DS owners.

Didn't you say you wanted to play Bravely Default? How will you ever like a system that is not Sony's, if you don't actually try any games from the other systems? :/

#28 Edited by trugs26 (5784 posts) -

They had an amazing 2013. I don't mind a mediocre 2014 so they can focus on the Wii U. Frankly, they gave me a backlog from 2013 anyway.

Im waiting for a price drop so i can buy it, im not going to throw $45 on a 3DS game. hopefully by the time i finish FFX and FFX-2 HD on the Vita BD will be $15 or less.

after pokemon BD is the only other game i would like to play on the device but again will not be spending $45 to play it.

They'll announce more games at E3 probably or at a Nintendo Direct

#31 Posted by gameofthering (10429 posts) -

Last year was okay but it doesn't look like there is any amazing games in 2014.

No, it isn't not in Japan or in the the West this year.

This so hard.

lolhandhelds, It went wrong when it was released to the public.

#35 Edited by hehe101 (629 posts) -

i traded mine in, too gimicky, the resident evil exclusives are the reason I even bought one.

I heard they are searching the ET-landfill to bury it there.

#37 Edited by Raptor_Herc (279 posts) -

Hopefully a new Advance Wars title will be announced for later this year.

#38 Posted by freedomfreak (42386 posts) -

It's pretty quiet. Nothing looks enticing enough to buy.

It's just sitting, collecting dust. Much like the WiiU.

#39 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3519 posts) -

With the exception of Bravely Default and Kirby, it's really bland this year.

Hopefully we get some more announcements by E3 or a new direct soon.

Are people still buying into this rumor?

@Sweenix: I'm sorry, what curious alternate reality are you posting from?

#42 Posted by Ghost120x (4099 posts) -

It has slowed down but the wii u really needs the attention. I'm warping up bravely default and Kirby should be good. Once smash bros come out I can live with a slow release schedule because I played Melee on and off for 4 years. I must have logged a thousand hours in that game.

#43 Edited by Shinobishyguy (22540 posts) -

@freedomfreak: Unless you played every good game for it last year I don't see how it could be collecting dust. You must have some sort of backlog

No, I do not. Plus, I'm not talking about backlog. I'm talking about a lack of interesting games to buy.

#45 Edited by Shinobishyguy (22540 posts) -

@freedomfreak: like I said unless you already burned through the 3ds's lineup last year that shouldn't be the case

No not really, but they should really do it.

I've always said Nintendo should just go handheld only.

Not every game was worth buying.

And again, I'm not talking about last year.

#48 Edited by RogueStatus28 (540 posts) -

If they announce Majora's Mask remake, Metroid, or Advance Wars 3D, it's all over for the Vita.

#49 Posted by Blabadon (28043 posts) -

@freedomfreak: Jesus Christ, someone else who recognizes this.
