I'm actually quite interested in the Professor Layton games. They look kinda fun.

Keep in mind, they always have different game release line-ups in America & Europe then they do in Japan.

And in regards to the unnecessary "Nobody will play these games" remark.

Actually, "Professor Layton" has quite a cult fan-following, and from what I hear/seen, are pretty good games in their own right.

Street Fighter 4 wasn't so bad either. (I liked the cel-shaded graphics, at least. They make it look more like the old game sprites.) Nintendogs was a good & cute simulation/pet game, so "Nintendogs+Cats" should be good to.

The other games, I don't know much about personally, so I can't judge them.

Cult following can be used to decribe anything. Hell, I'm one of the 'cult followers' of Fear Effect, doesn't meean it's popular or good.

You sort of hit the nail on the head. These are all games (with the exception of 2) that have most likely superiour versions elsewhere.

Actually, "Professor Layton" is very very popular in Japan. So it's no surprise it's a launch game to me.

You guys act like these are going to be the ONLY games on the system. It's kinda a pointless thing to complain about, considering more games will come out for it.

(And like I said already the US launch games will likely be different. They were with the DS, Gameboy Advance, and such.)

To be fair, the line-up isn't too bad from a marketing standpoint. Nintendo knows that if they launched with something like Zelda, the other games probably wouldn't sell as much as they could have.

FYI: Anything Sabre doesn't like is "nothing anyone would actually want to play." If he doesn't like something, he assumes no one else does either. ;)

Not true, but there certain points where it crosses into denilist fanboy land. (Final Fantasy for example)

Besides, as already pointed out, the lineup will be different elsewhere. However, as far as launch games go it's a pretty poor showing.

And your absolute refusal to believe Final Fantasy can be good is a perfect example of that denialist mentality you're talking about. Anyway, it's not a bad list of games. Professor Layton and Street Fighter alone are worth looking at, and several of the others looked interesting to say the least. Anyway, Nintendo's understandably going to take this kind of slow. 3DS might end up flopping, so of course they won't put all kinds of money into it until they're sure they can use it to become even richer.

Considering how popular the previous DS systems were, (including the remodels like the DS Lite, DSi, and DSi XL) I doubt the 3DS will flop. The only console Nintendo ever made that "flopped" completely was the Virtual Boy. Wich I admit, I didn't care for either. Though, I hear "Wario Land VB" is pretty good. (It would be cool to get some of the "better" VB games on the "Virtual Console" library for 3DS, if possible.)

Also, found some new screenshots for "Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D."

The graphics look pretty simular, at first, but on closer inspection, it looks like they did improve, and change the graphics a bit. The characters look less blocky, and there's more clearer art detail in the cliffs, and characters/enemies.

It also looks cool how they're using the second touch screen, but I hope they don't tack on to many touch-screen gimmicks onto the game. Nothing against touchscreen controls, it works for some games, but some games that use mostly button control, tend to have that feature tacked-on somewhere pointlessly, and it proves more annoying then fun to have to alternate between the 2 control schemes.

Like in "New Super Mario Bros." it seemed unnessacerry to use it to access your reserve item, considering it could've easilly worked with the "select button" as well. (Like in Super Mario World.)

Plus, some of us don't like using our thumb on the touchscreen (resulting in greasy thumbprints) and it still takes a brief second to pull the stylus out.

I'm hoping the anolog thing will sort out that problem. For 1, FPSs will be much better. Apparently current battery life is sub psp terratory. I rarely take my DS out and about, but when I do it's usually for long trips. While it doesn't bother me, I could see how it could be an issue.

I for one don't think there needs to be a touch screen this time. Why not remove it, extend the battery life and add a second stick or something of that nature.

I love how when trying to say I'm wrong, you actually provided a perfect example of my point. :P
