I’m not a big fan of the 3DS for a few reasons, but I still have one because NEW POKEMON GAMES. I made SURE that I would have one for the X and Y release. I actually got it as a birthday gift from my father back in July. You can see it in my Dedenne pouch picture. It’s adorable, slightly irridescent, adorned with an equally adorable Snubbull sticker, and…possessed.
I’m not exactly sure when the demons that invaded the body of the little girl in The Exorcist entered my 3DS XL, but it was not good. All would be quiet on the gaming front and then-SCREECH-the music would become garbled and loud for a second. Lines would come across my screen when I tried to shut it off. It started freezing and shutting off on its own, and the different notification lights started flashing. Needless to say, it went back to Nintendo for some repairs today.
So, less than a week before the X and Y release, I was without a console. I’m ashamed to admit how truly disappointed I was. Today, when I was somewhere between depression and acceptance that I would have to wait for a repaired console and that I might never see my pink 3DS XL again, if they could not fix it (Apparently, pink was a limited color.), my father announced that we were going to Game Stop after dinner. He wanted to get me another one so that I would have one to play and could sell whichever working one Nintendo returned to me. (This time, he got Game Stop’s replacement package, since he was regretting not getting it last time.) It was a thank you gift for helping care for my grandma, but I won’t get into that here.
Now, I have one of the blue (it was so hard to choose) X and Y 3DS XLs. I even stuck Snubbull on it in a way that makes it look like he’s begging this mystical deer god to save him from an evil bird of death. Pictures shall come soon. I AM BACK ON THE HYPE TRAIN. I repeat, I AM BACK ON THE HYPE TRAIN!
