3dsXL or N3dsxl cases fit perfectly fine. I have my Japanese Yellow 3DSiXL stored in a black Insten 3dsXL case from ebay.  Get any case for a 3dsxl and you're good to go. Also the Link, Mario, Luigi Hori 3dsXL case also fits nice too. I think some Vita cases might even fit if the case is wide enough. 

Screen protector just get any of those double sided stick plastic covers one. Get something to cover it. It's cheap and just keeps the screen nice,especially the bottom touch screen as you're more likely to scratch that up if you get lazy and use your fingers instead of the stylus.

Please, merge these 2 together.
One seems to be a duplicate.

Copying my post from Atariage over here, since I'm sure some of you are interested:

My twitter feed popped up a thread by a Mr. Jordan Baty today, who'd randomly bid on an Xbox DVT4 developer console on Yahoo auctions with no expections, but ended up winning. The system turned out to have an unreleased shooter called Rebellious Bullet tucked away into it. Here's his brief (and self-admittedly poor) play video:

I think it looks like it would have been a fun one- I dig the music. For the curious, he's already dumped the ROM, links are in the twitter thread (I'm not too familiar with how roms work, so I'll let the interested of you sort it out.)



Oh this is a nice surprise. Even ModernVintageGamer got involved.

For anyone that is interested, just looking at the files on the zip dump, the quick way to play it would be to FTP or transfer the complete RebelliousBullet folder over to a softmodded Xbox (place the folder where ever you store your ripped games). The softmod should be able to pickup the xbe and launch it. Alternatively you could also make and Xbox iso with the files using Qwix or any other xbox iso maker. Then burn that iso to a dvd r/rw and rip it from the disc. All in all you'll need a softmodded xbox to start with. Which you should have anyways!  As a softmodded xbox is an amazing console!   

Def gonna try this game out when i get home.

Definitely one of the cheaper hobbies out there as there are multiples approaches and you can tailor your collections as well. It can be both cheap or expensive depending what you're looking for.

My other hobby is modifying cars. I can easily spend $80-120USD on video games but in the car world... I own a Nissan Skyline, Subaru WRX, and a Toyota Altezza.....that $120 wont get me much of anything for any of those cars. The equivalent of $100USD on video games  in car parts for me would probably be around $400-700USD.

I ordered a body kit for my Altezza a few weeks back for $1100usd a couple years back i ordered a turbo for the Skyline for $1200 so, spending $110 on video games is a relief! cheap('er)!
Also, there are no "greatest hits" versions of car parts! So, im not going to get $1200 turbo for $800 after a year because it sold well! As long as your hobby isn't taking over your life or your responsibilities then its all good.

If it was the same game, you should of grabbed it at that price. Story is supposed to be good if you stick with it, but its gameplay mechanics kills it and tests your patience apparently. It's one of those games you play and suffer through for the story.

Price wise it generally goes up a bit in price every once in a while then slightly corrects itself a bit higher than before. I have the iso on my PS2 hard drive but ended up picking up a complete copy earlier this year.  A good bundle came up for sale and i picked up my copy that way. Don't pay $300. It's really a $60 game with a $220 reputation/hype tag.

You're mostly speaking out of nostalgia. I have the same type of memories but when you stack them against reality there is no mystery as to why game/movie rentals died down. 

Renting didn't become less popular it just became less and less profitable to have a business rely ONLY on physical rentals. Movies most likely made up a majority of rentals, while games made up a smaller portion. A physical store has to cover fixed overhead costs and relying only on movie rentals with a subsidy from game rentals, while trying to compete (and ignoring) digital rentals/sales...eventually there was not enough revenue generated to keep stores running. The market changed and companies like blockbuster didn't really embrace the change fast enough or properly adapt to it. Physical rentals went from being the standard to a novelty. Gamestop/EB games is going through a similar crisis as they heavily rely on physical sales and people physically coming into the store.
