I dunno whether I should get a 3DS, or a new DS Lite.
If I get a 3DS, I'd only play Pokemon X version on it (And maybe the Ruby and Sapphire remakes that are rumored around the internet for a future release), because no other games really appeal to me on the system thus far. And since X has a lot of Pokemon from Gen Five, I don't know how much I'd really enjoy it.
I just wanna raise a Chespin and Sylveon. X3
On the other hand, playing the demo 3DS at GameStop kills my eyes after five MINUTES, let alone the few hours a day I would spend playing it. Shutting off the 3D function would kind of reduce the system to another oversized DSi. And my DSi is stupid enough.
So I've been using my backup DS lite because of the DSi's screwed-up cartridge drive that no one seems able to fix. All the games that I love to play are on the DS, and I would use all of my money to fix the imminent damage in the near future. (Top screen is falling off, both screens have broken pixels, sections of the touch screen are occasionally unresponsive, etc.) It has lasted a few years with a few different owners and is my third DS Lite. The first one went through the same decline, and I traded the second one to get the DSi when it was brand-new.
If I get a new one, I won't be able to play the two or so new games that I'm interested in for the 3DS.
Unless I borrow a friends. But that would never happen.
Any advice will be appreciated.
Other interesting fact: I've been to two arcades in a week! I just walked to a friend's house from one, and a nice beach arcade last Saturday!
I got a blue polka-dot stuffed lobster for a prize. His name is Crawford.
