I used to love final fantasy tactics/tactics ogre, etc etc. But these kinds of tactical RPGs just have cringe storylines and dialogue anymore. It would be really hard to get into it.. Wish someone would make these games for 30 year olds. LMAO

You can, but you have to use an eshop card, you can't use credit/debit.

Those are Yasumi Matsuno games with fairly complex political stories especially as the latter series has branching storylines. I remember them mostly going over my head as a kid until they inevitably got to the whole "resurrect the evil god to conquer the world" bit. LMAO

Mercenaries Saga games are rather light on features and visual in comparison. The beginning of the games tells you the setting and the beginning of the story in words against a generic menu screen. There is no map to show you where the various nations they talk about are or even where you are. There is basically no backstory, no exploration, and no gradual introduction to make you care about most of the characters, and you always just go from battle to the preparation screen and then to the next battle. There are free battles you can play multiple times to grind up levels...which is probably necessary, at least if playing on normal. Also, it's not the most responsive game, lots of menus, and battles are slow.

In short, these games are a slog.

I'd recommend several TRPGs for the 3DS before this - Fire Emblem, Stella Glow, SMT: Devil Survivor, and many more if you include DS games. That said, even with those old DS it'd be tough to beat this price!

If I remember correctly you can use credit debit if you buy on a browser/switch using the Nintendo eshop, assuming you have the same account on your 3DS and Switch.

You have until August 29, 2022 to add funds via an eShop card, so if you have one of those lying around be sure to use it.

You can until March 23, 2023 to buy a game using funds in your account. Everything shuts down after that—demos, free titles, paid titles.

Yeah you're so mature! So mature that you choose to use a verb as an adjective and think you're not an idiot!

are you still in high school by any chance? i'm happy you're learning, but you understand slang, correct?
Did you know "troll" was a noun for centuries until the 1990s? Of course you did.
