Took about a week to get this uploaded, but I was building a new computer (more on that in a future video) so I couldn’t edit this. Aaaanyway, here is my unboxing/first impressions of Nintendo’s latest in its line of handheld gaming consoles, the 3DS XL. This is the Limited Pikachu Yellow Edition — FINALLY released to those of us in North America *shakes fist at NOA*. =P

Remember this post? Well, it was official. Here’s a picture of my Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D themed birthday cake, which I promptly devoured on my 20th birthday! YUM! :D

Hey guys, just a quick update on what I think of the 3D effect on the 3DS after using it for a little while. Ultimately, I feel that having the 3D Depth Slider up to Max is a bit much for my eyes. At that level, it actually causes me eye strain and it’s difficult to focus. I find that my “sweet spot” as far as the Depth Slider goes is about 48% of the way up. In other words, just ever-so-slightly less than halfway turned up. That’s the perfect spot for my eyes.

Not sure how everyone else is going to feel about the various levels of 3D, as everyone is different and thus may require adjusting to their personal preferences.

So, those of you who have a 3DS:
What do you think of the 3D effect?
How did you feel when you first experienced it?
What’s your “sweet spot” with the Depth Slider?
