  1. Gosh! If they release pokemon ruby and sapphire for this deal I will explode from sheer joy. I doubt that they would release a 2nd-party title but I can dream

    1. I know you’re trying to say a game made by a company owned by the 1st party, but I have to correct you on your usage of “2nd party” as it is one of my peeves when someone uses it like that. 1st party is the manufacturer of the original product, in this case it would be Nintendo and said product would be your 3DS, 2nd party is always the consumer. 3rd party is anyone that doesn’t fit into one of those two categories.

      Anything Nintendo is responsible for making would be considered a first party product, which includes it’s subsidiaries’ products. Anything someone not affiliated with Nintendo at all makes would be third party. You are still the 2nd party either way.

  2. I still don’t get what Nintendo was thinking when they were naming the Mario games for the GBA. If I remember correctly:

    Super Mario Advance = Super Mario Bros. 2
    Super Mario Advance 2 = Super Mario World
    Super Mario Advance 3 = Yoshi’s Island = Super Mario World 2
    Super Mario Advance 4 = Super Mario Bros. 3

    WTF Nintendo? Are you trying to confuse us?
