Three’s no crowd when it comes to a 3DS collection

There’s excessive, and then there’s “I can’t believe you went there” excessive, and I dare say I’ve crossed some boundary of game collection shame with my latest acquisition: yet another 3DS.

Yes, they all travel with me… 

I could give excuses all day as to why I opted to get another 3DS over, say, a certain new Nintendo console, but in the interest of returning to my new copy of Style Savvy: Trendsetters as soon as possible, I’ll keep it short: 1) the Japanese 3DS LL is so nice, it’s hard to go back to an old model North American 3DS when I go to play my other games and 2) the pink x white version is supposedly going to be a limited release in North America, so I wanted to grab the color while it was still available.

So, suffice it to say, I now have three 3DS’s! Will there be a forth in my future? … I certainly hope not, because that would be really excessive, and I probably wouldn’t blog about it even if I did just to maintain a shred of dignity. I will say that though the handheld had a relatively slow start, I’m thoroughly enjoying what the 3DS has to offer now. Between switching back and forth from my copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf to Style Savvy: Trendsetters, I’ve been keeping myself quite busy over the first week of vacation!

Forgive the cheesy filter, but it’s surprisingly fitting here, don’t you think?

Unfortunately the holiday season has kept me very busy, so I’ll have to cut this post short (don’t worry, Memos from Mamemura will return in January, as I don’t have a way to upload pictures from my SD card here at my parent’s house). I do, however, have one quick question for you all: Do you like “acquisition” posts like these? I recently noticed a comment elsewhere that suggested I was gloating in my Animal Crossing LL post. If anyone ever gets that feeling from anything I write, please inform me, because I really don’t want to come across that way. Perhaps sharing pictures and writing about items you’ve purchased/received can’t help but seem a little like gloating, but I’d like to keep as much of that out of my posts as possible! If it means cutting down on gratuitous photoshoots, I can certainly do that (though I doubt I’ll ever buy another limited edition item like that again, anyway). Please do let me know what you think, and if you don’t like these kind of posts, don’t be shy about speaking up. Thank you!

Oh, one last thing: Don’t forget to enter my holiday giveaway!
