Best of the 3DS eShop: 2013 Releases (Part 3)

(1/2) > >>

The Usual Preamble

With the announcement of the closure for the 3DS eShop, a lot of gamers are now thinking about the offerings available on it. This series of threads will take us back through the catalogue of available games that were released. It may remind you of some of the titles that one missed along the way or forgot about when games were coming out regularly. For myself, I know that I didn't always pay as close attention to the eShop and its releases as I did physical releases. And while I have accumulated a few titles from it, I feel there are probably more I should take advantage of especially since Nintendo hasn't created any other source to purchase many of these titles at this point in time.

While I could I slowly go through each title and hopefully try to track down reviews, I'd rather get the opinions of the NWR Forum users whose gaming tastes I trust a bit more. Plus, I figured this would be a chance to engage in our favorite practice of reminiscing about games we loved playing (and arguing about the worth / rank of a game. ;) )

The main goal is simple. If you have personally played any of these titles, post which ones you have and which ones you highly recommend others should have on their 3DS, which ones might be recommended for Kairon (or a deeper cut for a certain type of fan) and what you think should be skipped. (And sure, even if you haven't played them and have an opinion, I'm not going to argue against you from posting it). I've also included a poll for people to vote on the games being discussed as a possible easy reference for users to see what titles people think a person should acquire for their 3DS.

What Is Being Discussed?

I am trying to go through the eShop exclusives in chronological order at this point. To do that, I'm just going by the release dates on Nintendo's website for eShop games.

When I last did this type of thread, I was in the middle of the 119 or so games that came out for the eShop in 2013 and had divided up those 2013 releases in 4 parts. At this point in time, the amount of releases coming out on the eShop was at an amount and rate that it was getting hard to for this site to keep reviewing them all. Reviews started to become more sparse and there was also the factor that a lot of these titles probably didn't seem worth the time to play and review. But maybe someone out there has more information or took a chance on something here that they now want to bring to light. It's not like there was nothing worth playing that was released during this period. However, the early days of the eShop when every release was practically worth getting have definitely ended now. These games roughly cover the period of time from September to start of November 2013.

The list of titles up for discussion for Part 3 are:

10-in-1: Arcade Collection
Funfair Party Games
Fish On 3D
Summer Carnival '92 RECCA
Darts Up 3D
Boulder Dash-XL 3D
Jewel Adventures
AiRace Speed
Solomon's Key
Cut the Rope
Star Wars Pinball
Star Soldier
Family Table Tennis 3D
Carps & Dragons
Zombie Blaster
Rage of the Gladiator
Picross e3
Happy Circus
Jewel Quest 5 - The Sleepless Star
Family Bowling 3D
Secret Agent Files: Miami
Escape From Zombie City
Aqua Moto Racing 3D
101 Penguin Pets 3D
Brunch Panic
Snow Moto Racing 3D
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies
Angry Bunnies
Arcade Classics 3D

Which games do you think are worthy of being added to one's collection and played? Are there any overlooked gems you might be aware of?

Dual Destinies is the only game on this list I own and I wanna get through Apollo Justice first.

I don't think I've played any of these, which is kind of crazy considering how many eShop games I played.

This is a tough batch to find recommendations on. I was trying to use the Nintendo store page online and it is definitely slow from extra traffic.

Mop it up:
Yeeosh, when I look at lists like this it tempts me to use the old clich├ęd response of "And nothing of value was lost."
