Did You Board the Nintendo 3DS XL Hype Train?

August 22, 2012
Do you have any games you bring with you on the “hype train”?

Coffee Beans

Nintendo just released their new 3DS XL model in the United States this past Sunday, August 19. If you don’t know, the Nintendo 3DS XL has 90 percent larger screens than the original Nintendo 3DS system (which released last year), as well as longer battery life.

The new 3DS XL model has a retail price of $199.99, and is available in Red or Blue, and comes bundled with a 4GB SD card. Not only did Nintendo release the new 3DS XL on Sunday to entice gamers to stores, but they also released a new Mario game, New Super Mario Bros. 2, on Sunday for the 3DS system as well.
Last year after the 3DS released I did a poll that asked, “Did you board the 3DS hype train?” and you can see that poll and post HERE. Last week, I posted up a new poll that simply asked, “Are you buying a Nintendo 3DS XL?”. The poll has ended, but what were the results (and can you guess which one I voted for)? Take a look!

The Brew
Are you buying a Nintendo 3DS XL?
Day one!                                                                                         3 (17%)
Trading my current 3DS, for the 3DS XL model.                                 1 (5%)
Keeping my original 3DS, AND buying the new 3DS XL day one.         1 (5%)
Maybe, not sure.                                                                             3 (17%)
Sticking with the original.                                                             7 (41%)
No, and I don’t own any 3DS yet.                                                      1 (5%)
Does it have two Circle Pads?                                                          1 (5%)
Did somebody say iPad?                                                                 0 (0%)
PS Vita!                                                                                         0 (0%)
Caffeinated Thoughts/Questions
First, feel free to share how you voted in the comments below. I found the results interesting for the poll being up only a week, and considering that I rarely post polls I was glad to see it get a decent number of votes. The largest vote total is in bold above, “Sticking with the original.”, with 7 votes, or 41% of the total votes.

Which one did I vote for? See the first comment below in the comment section to find out! If you were one of the three that voted “Day one!”, or perhaps you missed the poll and didn’t vote but have purchased the 3DS XL, do you think the new system is worth the asking price of $199.99? If you didn’t get the 3DS XL yet, and own the original, have you taken a look at any of the current trade-in promotions for the new system and thought about taking advantage of those?

Also, if any of you purchased New Super Mario Bros. 2 and have had a chance to play it, what do you think of the game from what you have played? Good, or bad?

Poll Results

May 10, 2010
(click image to enlarge)
The poll closed with 23 people voting, but I had it set up, where each person could vote for multiple answers if they chose to do so.
In all, 35 votes were cast.
As the picture shows, both “More Data Stories” and “Game Reviews” tied for 1st, with 8 votes each.
Opinion Pieces” was a close 2nd, with 7 votes.
Game-Play Videos” was 3rd, with 6 votes.
Just keep up what you’re already doing” was 4th, with 4 votes, and “Other” was last with 2 votes.

The poll above, ended on April 11, but I never really addressed the results of it.
I have been thinking about different ways to implement ideas into my blog.  One of the things I have been thinking about, are game reviews.
I have been reading many more game reviews than normal in the last few months, getting ideas of what I like and don’t like in review formats.
My first “official” review of sorts, will be going live this Friday, May 14.

Also, I put up a post, “Coffee with Games Poll Participation“, and said, “I’m always open for suggestions and feedback…”

On the post, readers Nicodemus at Nite, keith, and SuperPhillip, all left suggestions.
Nicodemus at Nite said that he would like to see more humor posts, like some I had done in the past, as well as seeing some vintage NES stuff.
Keith said he agreed with Nicodemus at Nite’s thoughts, and that he would like to see more opinion articles, to know what I like and think of different games, and gaming topics.
SuperPhillip said he would like more opinion pieces and game reviews, not so much with data stories.
I received an email from reader Delawaregamer, suggesting I post Amazon.com deals on games.

Questions:
If you didn’t participate in the poll, do you have any suggestions for things you would like to see me do on the blog?  I can admit, I am slow when it comes to implementing ideas on the blog.  As you may have noticed, I don’t post what I call, “rehashed” news stories on my blog, by themselves.  Each post, I try to keep original, with content not found on other sites/blogs.

If you have any suggestions, email me and let me know, or leave a comment on this post.
If you suggest something, and you don’t see it implemented right away, it may be, because I’m thinking of a way to implement it, but in a way to make it different from other sites/blogs.

I do take suggestions seriously, and I greatly appreciate the feedback and discussions we have had on different posts so far.

Again, thank you all for the comments and feedback.  I hope to keep my posts fresh, like the pot of Folgers French Roast that I’m brewing right now!

Sincerely,
