Thanks for the advice everyone.
They have more than just Fire Emblem: Awakening.

You can play older DS games too so you shouldn't limit yourself to only 3DS games.

I never use the 3D effects. Gives me a headache. I really like the screen real estate though of the XL.

All of those games look "meh" to me. I was only interested in Fire Emblem but after watching a bunch of videos on it, it doesn't even hold a candle to FF Tactics.

That sucks. I'm sorry you think that way, but just about anyone who's played both FE and FFT will tell you that's not true. Very different games. But your loss, bud.

Not my loss lol, if I don't like the games than I don't like them. A ton of people will tell you that FF Tactics was way better than Fire Emblem. better tactical gameplay a long with a better storyline. Also, I'n not a fan of JRPG's.

If the 3DS was priced at $50 I'd pick one up but theres no point if the XL version costs $200 which is the same price as a PS3 bundle that has Disgaea out for it.
