3DS Impressions: 3 weeks later

My 3DS arrived a little over 3 weeks ago and besides wanting to give myself some time to get past the new gadget phase, I haven't had any time to post some impressions.  I'd like to say that I've been playing it furiously each day, but the truth is that I've been too busy and tired.  As a bit of background we've moved 900 miles to a new state where my job is and have also been dealing with a real estate nightmare.

Without further sidetracks, here we go:

Mobile gaming and 3DS Cases

The 3DS posting storm has died down a bit and I've now had a week with the system.  I'll post some impressions when I can, but I wanted to throw out some case ideas and see what others are using.  I don't foresee myself being a big mobile gamer outside of the house, but I'd still like some good protection while still being feasible to carry.

A sign of things to come

The last several posts have been fairly heavy on the 3DS, especially "what's next".  While I have dedicated some serious thought to the 3DS since launch it's never really been in the realm of actually buying it.  With the August price drop and some newly-acquired gift cards, it seemed like the right time to jump back into that discussion and mull/waffle it over against other console options.

I finally took the plunge on Friday and placed an order with Amazon which should hopefully arrive somewhere between Wednesday and Saturday.  I considered not posting anything until I had a week or two of hands-on time, but what fun is that?

Needless to say I'm excited not only for the game line up, but to have a new kind of gaming experience via a handheld.  Catch more details after the jump.
