3DS Game Releases in 2013 (And a list of those that I am getting)

There's a ton of games that are set to be released in 2013 (and a few announced for 2014 as well). I decided to write about it so that I can keep track of all the game releases and to decide on which that I am going to get. I usually get my news/game release sources from r/3DS.

I managed to get my Pikachu 3DS XL as well :)

Friendly Redditor 656782 created this 3DS games NA release list for us to keep up with updates - makes things much easier.

Games that I am planning to get:
Fire Emblem Awakening [4/2] - JRPG with good ratings.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf [9/6] - Good game to unwind.
Shin Megami Tensei IV [16/7] - Looks good.
Pokemon X [?/10] - It's Pokemon. Childhood game.

Games that I am not sure if I should get:
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers [16/4] - Not a fan of the graphics, storyline wise looks pretty good. Still unsure. Maybe I'll get it if I have any extra cash to spare.
Rune Factory 4 [16/7] - Waiting for ratings + gameplay to decide if I'll get it.
Any Zelda game that is set to be released for the Nintendo 3DS, purely because I've never played any Zelda games before.
Older series of Pokemon Games.

Games I already have:
Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon [24/3] - I decided to get this after reading this interview
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask - I got this as the free game from the Club Nintendo promotion

Hopefully I'll have sufficient funds for them :x

Skynet and their bad service.

Previously I've never had much trouble with Skynet until recently. The first time I thought I'd let it pass. This is the second time I've had bad service from them and this one just takes the cake.

The first time I had bad experience with Skynet was a few weeks ago. The parcel arrived in Penang on Saturday but they didn't even bother delivering it. When I checked the tracking every day, they would give "Office closed" as an excuse for not delivering the parcel. I highly doubt if that's even considered as a reason. My mum helped me to pick up the parcel in the end on Wednesday or Thursday.

This is the second time I've had bad service from them. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Skynet and their well known bad service.
I ordered stuff from Taobao again and it was shipped out on the 19th of March. It has been more than a week since then. It arrived from KL to Penang on the 23rd of March (Saturday) and I'm pretty sure the parcel has been stuck in their office ever since then, either that or the deliveryman is doing a pretty bad job of  delivering parcels. I'm not going to use Skynet's service ever again.

A lot of people have experienced their fair share of bad service provided by the one and only, but of course, Skynet. Check the links here (Lowyat forum thread)  and here (Google for Skynet bad service) . There's even a Facebook page dedicated to asking people to boycott Skynet. It says a lot really about their insanely top notch bad service.

I'm surprised they even had the cheek to say delivery delayed. 
Delivery delayed? YOU DON'T SAY?
For reference: 
Pos Laju took 2 days to reach my house from Johor to Penang. 
Skynet can't even send a parcel that is in Penang to my house in Penang.
