New Friday the 13th game

If it turns out well, (or badly) maybe we can get Hor-RIFF-ic Productions to do a Let's Play video on it.

I don't have high hopes, but in premise it could be a really neat survival horror game.

Yea me too. I thought it sounded great until they talked about it basically promoting a television show. Besides there was no info on the development so it could be like a flash game for all we know. Hopefully it's great but the fact that it's licensed and has a TV show tie in do not bode well for it.

So the new 3DS is only coming out in XL in North America.

Ouch, Nintendo. Here, I was all excited and ready to day-one this thing, despite it just BARELY being an upgrade from my trusty 3DS, but I really, really don't want to try to jam that XL into my pocket every day. (Yes, every day. I take the thing everywhere. I play the streetpass games. :^)) I was also looking forward to the replacable faceplates. Instead I'm stuck with red or black. Now I'll have to wait and hope they change their minds down the line...

EDIT: Oh, but what's this? There's going to be a nifty gold Majora's Mask 3DS? Maybe I can deal with the bulky- Won't come with the game in North America!? Why does Nintendo hate us suddenly!?

The new one also doesn't come with a power charger which might not be the best idea for new adopters who get one as a gift.

Yay! Wait I can't play it? I have to go buy a charger?

Whaaa? Has that happened before? What a dumb thing to do.

Is it a specialized charger too, or do they think they can get away with it because it's micro-usb and people can use a phone charger.  Still just have an old DS, so I don't know.

I think it's the same as the regular DS one. That's the only way my brain can try to make sense of the decision to not include one.

I only have the very first generation DS. I stopped playing portable games for a long time. Am considering picking up the new one.

The charger is the same as the other 3DS', as well as the DSi's. They're selling it separately to keep the cost down for people who don't need another one.

The 2DS also uses that same one.
