Today for my birthday (which was actually yesterday), one of my presents was Meteos: Disney Magic, which I've been looking for for quite a while now.

Then I opened the case, and the cartridge was not Meteos: Disney Magic, but Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt.

I...

Nah, it was okay. I at least got to play First Hunt to see what it was like before I gave it back to my dad to send back. According to him, it only cost about $5.

Boy, am I glad they changed the Morph Ball boost mechanics in the final game. Double-tapping a direction to boost made movements that should have been gentle curves into frustrating offshoots. Also, I found it interesting that there were actual Metroids in First Hunt, when I remember Hunters was panned for not having Metroids. Irony. Giving the power beam sort-of limited ammunition was rather annoying, though.

All in all, I ended up pretty much completing the game in just an hour. Very short, although since it was supposedly a free demo at the time, I guess it's to be expected.

Other than First Hunt, I got Kirby: Planet Robobot, de Blob, and Star Fox Zero + Guard is on it's way.

Oh yeah, and I got clothes. Can't forget the clothes.

Surprised you did not have First Hunt, since most DSes came with that on launch. But man that blows, such a shame dude. I feel you, that's kind of how I got Majora's Mask because my Dad was trying to get me and my sister Ocarina of Time...and somehow he misunderstood. On the plus side he revealed a plot twist that the game was a gift for me and not her and I love Majora's Mask now so yeah.

I'VE HEARD ONLY AMAZING THINGS ABOUT PLANET ROBOBOT, and I can imagine why. Kirby and robots are both great on their own, and matching them is an unexpected but welcomed surprise, like PRETZELS and JELLY.

STAR FOX ZERO, FROM WHAT I PLAYED, WAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST. I hadn't really played much of 64 growing up, so I lack that nostalgia, and I WAS playing with a friend who piloted, but there's a lot of small details that I really appreciated. Hope ya enjoy it, and hope your birthday rocked, dude!

Yeah, I actually got a blue DS that came packaged with Super Mario 64 DS instead. I'd say it was the better deal.

Now it's back to searching for Meteos: Disney Magic, yes it is.

I can't stand pretzels, but to each his own. Planet Robobot has been pretty fun so far regardless.

My birthday was okay. The most amazing thing about it was that I went to SmashBurger for a great chicken burger, and then went to Best Buy for no reason other than its Nintendo Zone and StreetPass-tagged nine people.

Normally I'd go to a movie or something, but WHATEVER.

Yeah that does sound better, much better lol

how the !#%$ can you not like pretzels!? Pretzels and cheese is glorious. Star Fox Zero is solid, I had issues but overall worth the time/money. Guard, though I'm not done, is a very pleasant surprise and has a lot of potential.

If you mean the large pretzels that are like bread, then yeah, those are more tolerable, especially with cheese. It's the tiny, hard variety that I can't stand. After making the mistake of eating one one time, I thought I'd do a taste test of another by holding it against my tongue, and that alone made me feel like throwing up.
