You have a 3ds? How's the battery life? This seems like a cool idea but it might not be worth it if the battery dies after one movie.

Really the battery does not die as quickly as people say. I don't have an exact estimate but its about 7-8 hours. If your playing 3ds games its like 4-5hours. And Netflix for this is cool and a nice addition

Well that's not too bad. I could see myself getting one once a bit more content comes out for it.

just downloaded it and messed around with it a little. pretty slick overall. watched the beginning of the fighter.

only problem is now that i've closed out of netflix to go back to ocarina of time it's said "saving data and closing software" for the last 45 minutes. seems to have completely frozen my 3ds and i can't power it down. if i have to wait for the battery to drain to play my 3ds again i'm gonna shit.

Just another reason for me to go out and spend the money on it. I was resisting to buy it just for OoT3D, but Paper Mario 3DS and Netflix on top of it? I was going to wait for the WiiU, but sheeeeeeeit, i might have to get this too.

Same for me. Happened the first time only. Netflix is working much better today too. Much faster. Not sure if they did anything. I'm pretty happy with the app.

oh yeah, it's fun as hell. If you are a new generation I MUST HAVE REALISTIC SHOOTER WHERE I SHOOT GERMAN SOLDIRES WITH ONE OF MY 27,000 GUNS video game fan than no. Otherwise it's a great game. It has great atmosphere, it's slow (the intro) for only like a half hour, the dungeons are great, and it has more fun, suprising moments than most any games. It hasn't aged badly at all either. I played it when it first came out on N64 so it's not like i'm super familiar with where everything was. I'm having a great time. And it's long. Highly recommended.

I think people harp too much on "remake", "rerelease", whatever. This got released on Wii but to me that was different, i didn't get it, and that was the same exact game released on Wii. This is the same game in terms of content, but the graphics are cleaner, the new game mechanics using the DS structure are awesome (the gyroscope aiming, and the ability to tap to change items - there is this temple where you need to use a particular item off and on - in the N64 you'd need to pause, enter the menu, go to another menu, change the item, get out of the menu and back to game. And you'd need to switch the item on and off in the temple. Here, you just click, change the item, and go. It makes it much more fun) and it's the first time on a handheld. Please, Nintendo rerelease every awesome game you ever made, i'll be fine.
