|My fabulous Nintendo 3DS! (in crappy resolution :D)|
First off, please excuse the photo quality on my little bloglett here. I'm just starting out. Now I know the 3DS has been out for a bit, but I just wanted to share my quick impressions of my launch unit.
|The main menu|
It plays all my old DS games, takes 3D photos, plays music, and will do even more when updates are released. Really fun to show off to friends and relatives.
The stylus is longer than even the XL's but feels a little thinner. I haven't had any issues with short battery life like some have. My only concerns are how much of a smudge magnet this thing is, and the lack of launch games that interest me. I bought SSFIV 3D and hated it. I know it's good, but not my cup of tea.
So overall is the 3DS worth it? I'd say not yet! There really isn't much out for it now, and some features expected in an update are taking a bit too long, but the thing is sexy and I'm glad to be playing my old DS games on it.
Lastly here is Roadbuster from the upcoming Transformers movie. One of the wreckers, this guy is amazing for a deluxe class figure. Cool head sculpt (reminds me of Spartan 117, lol), (mostly) nice paint, smooth transformation, and decent kibble management. Some people have been complaining about poor paint apps though. If you leave the store hunting for DoTM toys, this guy should come with you. Head over to my flickr to see bot mode!
Finally I leave you with a question. How do you guys prep for photography? Natural lighting? Photo box? Give me all the details!
