Please help support my game habit

Hey all, I just created a new PayPal account using the email address I have been using to apply for jobs with:

Please send me money on Paypal to this email address, and I will use it to buy more games, and maybe an original 3DS on sale.

I bought a 2DS, and I like the system. The original resolution looks crisp and sharp compared to the slightly stretched effect on the 3DS XL. The form factor is great, the triggers (R and L) are very nice buttons, and the mono sound is actually neat in my opinion. However, the downsides are that there are no 3D, and it doesn't have a clamshell design, which makes it less portable than its predecessors.

I want to buy an original 3DS someday. I'm thinking of holding out to see if we get the white 3DS in the USA. The only colors available here are black, purple, and pink.

I finished SteamWorld Dig; this is a great eShop game and I highly recommend giving it a shot! It's very good.

I've been playing Etrian Odyssey: Untold...and it is just like the other EO games...but something feels a bit off; maybe that's because I'm playing in "Story Mode," which means your characters have been created for you, and they are fixed. I'm used to switching around a bit until I find something that works well for me. Later, I will be able to change my story characters' classes, and I might do that if something makes sense to change.

I also bought Rune Factory 4, which I'm glad I got to try out. It's a neat little game. Honestly it has made me interested in the Harvest Moon's a spin-off series from Harvest Moon, which is like a farming simulation. In Rune Factory 4, you are a prince or princess who has their own garden to work on, lives in a castle, and hunts monsters.

Just a small update, and I hope I can find some benefactors to support my gaming habit! ;)

You can also send money directly to my account via my iPhone cell number: 5038801696.

Last day for the Atlus 3DS contest

I know I want more 3DS games. That's why I've been entering this contest like a nut. So, here goes the last entry.

What can I say? Etrian Odyssey is my favorite 3DS series. The art is so cool and the dungeon crawling was very exciting. I admit I've gotten jaded over time after 4 games, so I'm looking for new quirks to keep my attention. I'm actually thinking of playing Untold on the highest difficulty possible. Then I'll have to really flesh out and develop my characters. The only thing is that I like to move quickly through the labyrinth, so if the encounters are more difficult, it might impede my progress and make me frustrated.

I played EO4 on casual the first time through, then on normal with a few level 1 characters. Speaking of which, I also need to figure out if I want to play through story first or go with classic. Kind of torn between it. But I usually only use one main party without switching characters too much, and the story party seems very balanced with the default classes, and there seems to be an option to reclass them later too.

Decisions, decisions. Just glad I finally got my hands on this game, and I hope it compels me to play like these games usually do.
