I don't think I know anyone else locally with a 3DS. I tried out all of the available characters last night. It was all right. Screen's too small on my original 3DS, though. I had no idea what some of the items I was picking up were, or what my attacks were. Also, seeing as I've played Brawl just about never, I didn't know how to do the smash attacks. I saw Mega Man's when he used it on us, but that was it.
