Or should you wait for the first revision?¬† The answer lies beyond the break for those who have yet to pull the trigger.
This review has been crafted in multiple parts, if you want to jump to a section, just click it:
The 3DS has finally arrived, and while it was not in a pristine box filled with goodies like most of the press received, we went out on launch night (and day) to pick up our reserved units.¬† Initially I was blown away by the features and overall feel of the device, and I still feel that way weeks after getting the device.¬† The built in applications are fun and provide instant fun right out of the box, and the launch lineup is probably the strongest we have seen for a console ever.¬† While there is a bunch of stuff missing, you should read on and decide for yourself if you can live without this truly magical device.

It’s no secret that everyone loves The Legend of Zelda. GenGAME is a prime example of people that love the series. If you didn’t catch our Zelda marathon then first of all shame on you; but secondly if you did see it then you would note the passion we have for these games. This time around for the Genten LIST we did something different. It was a type of mix and match game that Myself (Kevin), Trevor, Kyle, Ed, and Aaron played to compile this list. For the entirety of what we did check out the GenGAME BSCast where we put the BS in brainstorm.
It’s no secret that there were a collection of bad Zelda games. If you know what a CDi is, then you’ll definitely know the worst of the worst games that bear the Zelda name. So rather than beat around the bush, we present to you the from 10-1 (Least worse-Most worse) Legend of Zelda games:
From the makers of Diablo and FATE, comes a dungeon crawler RPG for the Xbox live arcade. Featuring 3 classes; A dungeon generator that makes each time through a unique experience, an “endless dungeon” and retirement feature to give you plenty of options for¬†re-playability.
The story for Torchlight is pretty simple, and is roughly the same regardless of class selection.¬† Your hero comes to the town of Torchlight on an assignment to investigate what is happening to a resource there known as Ember.¬† Of course to investigate, you must enter the mine which is a labyrinth of various caves, ruins, crypts and libraries, crawling with every sort of evil one could think of.¬† The story should be treated as a guide.¬† It is¬† just a basic explanation of the what and why things are happening, with a break of back-story between sections.¬† Even the side quests are a little more than “gather X item from level Y”, or “kill large bad guy Z.”
