      Have you finished the Conker’s Bad Fur Day story yet? It’s so funny & awesome! A must-play for any serious gamer I think.
      I also really liked Super Street Fighter IV’s 3D Mode when I first got my 3DS. :)

    • supermcawsomevill

      Haven’t finished the story mode in my Conker live and reloaded. I  liked Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition better than the arcade edition even though the arcade version has more stuff. 

    • ssjbardock13

      I just finished Sonic 4 Episode II, it was a F!@#$%^ BLAST XD

    • Ferry

      Nice! Did you unlock the extra Metal Sonic Episode too?

    • Ferry

      Yeah it’s fun stuff! And you should give finishing Conker a go, it’s a blast!

    • supermcawsomevill

       That is cool. I might get it. I really wish sonic 4 episode 2 would come out to the Wii

    • supermcawsomevill
