4.0 out of 5 stars It's what you expect., July 11 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As all Adventure Time Season DVDs go this is nothing different than the usual great quality that's the par of them all.

The full package looks like BMO's outside, taking the case out of the paper protective cover reveals his inner workings, and the DVDs are designed to show BMO's heart and his disc drive :3 Very cute design as usual.

As for the contents? It's the season and that's it really.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great., July 11 2014

Does exactly what the products says it does; makes the 3DSXL comfier to hold but not a ton as your hands will still hurt if you're at it for 3-4 hours.

NOTE: Of the 2 pieces this grip comes in, the bottom half has some issues! First it doesn't seem to fit well over the Left and Right Trigger and will slip off slowly as you use those buttons. Secondly, the part that goes around the end where the charge port and the game cartridge slot is doesn't fit at all. It'll just sorta be against the edge but doesn't fit into place as it seems as if that part was made too big. Because of this you won't get a 100% snug fit all around.
Also the way the grip is built around the Left and Right trigger is to create an artificial extension of them. It's placing 2 larger tabs of rubber that's supposed to act so you can more easily use the triggers, however these aren't that great and thus using the triggers can be a bit sticky sometimes.
The area at the hinges of the 3DSXL won't be covered perfectly either as having the handheld opened to it's fullest will sometimes cause the grip to pull itself together and cause your trigger to constantly activate.

Overall the product does what it claims to about 85% of the time, the other 15% is wondering how the heck these slight defects got past quality insurance people at the factories.

[Edit] So it's been roughly a month and bit since I've been using this and it's working good for the most part. Except the part going over the joint between the two screens has torn because it's really thin and because the whole thing doesn't fit 100% over that part of the 3DS you have to readjust it now and then...and that's when it tears :/

I would suggest now looking for a better product or hope these people upgrade the quality of their product.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Pokemon!, July 6 2014
Very fun game as all Pokemon games are, honestly the only complaint might be that having some of the large cities go into this 3D 3rd person perspective makes it annoying to travel around sometimes.

Other than that it's exactly what you expect from a Pokemon game! Tons of Pokemon to catch, train, breed,etc.

Great Xbox controller for the console or the computer, only complain for me is that the right-hand grip bit is a tad loose but nothing that ruins the feel of the controller itself.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The commercials over hyped these pens or I happened to get a bad box of them. 3-4 of them work for a good while of 2-3 weeks and then start choking to death as they cough out ink as you write with them. Using every trick known to Google to fix the ink flow fails spectacularly.

So purchase and cross your fingers you get a better batch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to the series, July 3 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fantastic addition to the LoZ world. It feels much like Link to the Past but with a whole different story much like most of the other LoZ games.

If you were ever a fan of the older titles then this will be a real treat for you. However, because it's much like the older titles like SNES,etc. You can easily beat this game in about 8-10 hours? Depending on if you're going for a complete 100% playthrough of the game (Be warned one Heart Fragment is won through a very annoying minigame).

That one minigame is one of my few gripes with this game. Look up Ocotoball for this game and you'll see what I mean.

There is Hero Mode that lets you play the game again where enemies do several times more damage while also unlocking some hidden plot devices. There's also a sub-mission where you rescue transdimensional squid babies...I'm serious....to get the item upgrades and possibly the most OP thing ever once you rescue all 100.

A must have for all LoZ fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Harvest Moon-esque game for the average RPGer, July 3 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great game that reminds me of Harvest Moon put into a fantasy based realm with great flexibility.

You can fight monsters, farm, craft farming tools/weapons/shields/armor/accessories/food and more. The characters in the game all have great stories behind them and their stories become even deeper when you unlock certain scenes with them when you gain enough friendship with them.

My only erk with it might be getting used to the seasons, knowing what to grow and what not, learning what to sell and which characters likes what items so you can gain friendship quickly with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, July 3 2014
Came in perfect condition, box had 2-3 slight dents but at better than the 3DS itself having them.

Great handheld console, great selection of games, and the battery time on it is pretty good at about 4 or so hours before needing to recharge. Only complain is the shape of it does tend to bug your hands sometimes after long play sessions so getting a comfort grip for it is a must for anything more than casual play.

Lives up to the hype as the XL version of the 3DS is bigger overall with a much more refined look and feel versus the regular 3DS.
