It’s my own fault really.
Let me take you back to Christmas 2014… My boyfriend had had his eyes on a Nintendo DS for a while, so a friend of mine kindly lent him her Nintendo DSi and a couple of games for a week over Christmas. It kept him quiet and he played on it so much that he even managed to complete one of the Professor Layton games.
Back to Christmas 2015… John would have been happy enough with a second-hand Nintendo DSi for Christmas this year, but was surprised to find I’d got him a Nintendo 3DS console along with a couple of games. He thought I’d been overspending, but he should know me better than that. I’m always after a good deal and I think I got one…
Being a daily visitor to the HotUKDeals website, I managed to bag him a Nintendo 3DS Ice White Console for £69.99 from Argos in the Black Friday. It had previously been on sale for £84.99, but at the time of writing is currently on their website for £109.99. That wasn’t the end of it, Argos had also got a special offer on meaning I could get a free game with the console, so I grabbed Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (currently £12.99).
To go with it, I picked up the Resident Evil 3DS game from Argos for £3.99, along with a Nintendo Licensed Executive Case (holds the console, 2 games and a spare stylus) for £5.99 and Nintendo Licensed Screen Protectors for £2.98 from Amazon.
Not a bad bundle for £82.95!
The Nintendo 3DS is a handheld console suitable for everyone, whether young or old, from the hardcore gamers to the casual gamers. It’s even suitable for those who just prefer to solve a puzzle. As the 3DS is backward compatible with the DS games, there is a wide variety of games available to play, whether you like platform, racing, fighting, adventure or puzzle games.
So from Christmas Eve until New Year I pretty much lost my boyfriend to Nintendo. Every spare moment was spent with his head in the 3DS or browsing on my tablet. To be fair, he spends a lot of time working (whether it’s in his shop, sourcing items or selling on Ebay), so it’s provided him with a much-needed distraction.
On a side note: I ended up with the “New” Nintendo 3DS and have been playing on retro type games like Super Mario Bros 2 and Broken Sword.
