Pulled the lever on a game I've been watching in the eShop for a while now.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhiWvvO_QE0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhiWvvO_QE0</a>
A-Train: City Simulator

I have no regrets whatsoever, this game is very very good. The tutorials are long (hours) but they do a great job setting you up and the game has a ton of depth and is very enjoyable. If you like this type of game, definitely consider it. It's got tons of features and options to tweak around and the presentation is nice! The trailers don't show much of the gameplay unfortunately and opt to show the "3D" visuals instead. But make no mistake, the game is a isometric transportation simulator.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Nah it's more like Transport Tycoon (semi-lite). You have limited building placement in normal modes and the idea is to grow cities and towns by connecting them with rail and other types of transport. There is an exhaustive amount of control over the vehicles in game. For instance you can control a train's arrival and departures down to the minute, operating hours, off hours (where you can have them run OTHER types of cargo), routes, cargo types, and even things like the sound they make when they arrive at a station. You've got to be able to build up depots and keep them stocked to encourage growth. It's very detailed and a slow kind of game. You are building long-term strategies.

They also have a construction mode once you complete the tutorials that allows more freedom is just building things.

Sadly there's almost no video of this game out there.

The Zelda n3DS came out today! It is glorious.

Also, HORI makes really easy-to-use screen protectors.

Haven't touched my 3DS in a long time. After finishing Mario 3D Land and getting bored of Animal Crossing I just haven't found anything I really wanted to play. Any recommendations? Especially stuff that's not just console ports, like MGS3 or Xenoblade, which I think work better as console games anyway.

Close your eyes and spin around. There's a crapload of games out there that are worth playing on the 3DS.

Hit the eShop and download some demos. They've gotten a lot better about putting out game demos.

That said, get TriForce Heroes. It's a blast! And I want friends to play with. :D

Triforce Heroes is 3DS only right? So I guess I'll look into that.

I sort of generally dislike portable gaming so if there are good 3DS games that also exist on console or PC (like, say, Shovel Knight), I tend to not get the portable version. But if there are really good 3DS exclusives I like to try to get into them. Unless it's only 3DS/WiiU because I don't have a WiiU so I have to play the 3DS ones then.

But cool, Triforce Heroes! And I'll check out the eshop as well. Are there any sort of hidden gems that I might not see/have heard about?

Yeah there's a bunch. I just transferred my system over and had to transfer the SD card as well. Had almost 14 gigs of (mostly great) eShop games on there.

A few you may want to look into:

A-Train 3D City Simulator (erops and I were just discussing this game above, check that conversation out)
Pushmo
Crashmo
Stretchmo
Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars
BoxBoy!
Harmoknight
Sky Peace (99 cents, you can't not get it)
Steel Empire (remake, a bit pricey but very worth it)
Gunman Clive
Gunman Clive 2
SteamWorld Dig A Fistful of Dirt (AWESOME)
Steel Diver Sub Wars (underwater Star Fox with multiplayer, F2P, not broken)
Kirby Fighters Deluxe (if you have friends to play with, supports download play)
Dillon's Rolling Western

And another thing to check out are the SEGA 3D Classics. They're remastered version of older SEGA games and they are very well done. They also look great on the 3DS. I have Sonic, Sonic 2, Space Harrier, After Burner II, Ecco the Dolphin, and Fantasy Zone. Nintendo has also contributed some of their own games to the 3D Classics series. The two I have are Kirby's Adventure and Kid Icarus.

These remakes are excellent.

Mildly interesting video on hardware differences. I like this guy!

The Hyrule Edition seems to have a better screen than any of the n3DS models yet. However the 2nd wave Majora's Mask edition n3DS systems have a very good screen as well, with the first-run MM systems having the "worst" of the bunch.
