With no redesign imminent, I'm eyeing a CPP for Christmas, for Revelations, Dream Drop Distance and Nano Assault.

Anyone here have one, or have any sort of recommendations?

I picked it up a month or two ago and I play Revelations and MGS3D with it.
It definitely helps for both of those games. In RE you can move and shoot, while in MGS3D the second analog stick is a must for aiming, unless you want to use the face buttons.
It's a quality product for sure - it feels sturdy and it's fairly comfortable, though that could vary depending on hand size.
I'd recommend it as long as you have a couple games that you think would benefit from it.
I just wish it could be used for more games. I like the added size.

What all games even really make use of it?

I've always heard it greatly improves MGS3D & RE:R, but I don't hear about it's benefits outside of those two titles.

I know Dream Drop Distance uses it, but (according to IGN's review) it plays just as well without.

For me... I have big hands. I use it for every game regardless of compatibility, because it makes the small system infinitely more comfortable in my hands. The extra features are nice, but the size and shape are the real bonuses for me.

Nano Assault EX is coming out, and while I found the original to be perfectly playable, people playing on the Wii U say "It's unplayable without dual-analog!" so it's worth upgrading for me. Plus, the controls in Revelations will be better, a must for aiming and moving at the same time with accuracy. Also, I've heard mixed opinions over the DDD circumstance, some reviewers say it's a struggle without it, some say it sucks total ass when you use it. And I'm still holding out for a new first-person shooter, and any FPS that doesn't support that is an automatic pass.

Kid Icarus and "collecting dust" should not go in the same sentence.

Well, unless you already got all the achievements and have no friends with the game.

Sorry, off-topic

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can't use the R button if the game doesn't support the circle pad pro though right? Since the circle pad pro covers the R button on the 3DS (it has its own R button).

Because Nintendo never wanted, and still doesn't want a second analog stick. Which is why they won't release a 3ds with two analogs. But why even create the CPP ? Well because Capcom wanted it for mainly for Monster Hunter. Now Nintendo is obviously not going to pass on MH.

Leave luck to heaven.

But you just put them in the same sentence!!!

On-topic, I have a cpp, but I don't have a 3DS anymore, I have an XL. So it is just a useless piece of plastic to me now.

I only use it for KI:U because im a lefty.
KH3D plays just as fine without it.

I hope the XL version comes out soon. I have Kid Icarus, RE, and will be getting Nano Assault EX soon. I think it would be cool, but they should have had dual-analog on XL, because now people can't even use a CPP on the XL if they want one. It would have made the price difference between the consoles alot easier to explain, too, just besides being bigger.

As a lefty, I just COULDNT play Kid Icarus, I needed that thing. It is very nice with MGS3 too. I think one reason Nintendo is relucant to add in another circle pad is because the design of the wii U controller would almost mirror the 3DS. Look at both of them.

I bought one for Revelations but now that Revelations is coming to the PS3 the CPP is just a wasted $20.

I totally agree!

I would go so far to say, you NEED the CirclePadPro for Resi and MGS to really enjoy them.
I like it so much I wish I could have it all the time on my 3DS.
It only works with supported games and there are just a few. If you got the games it's worth buying it and I think it could come in handy for Kindom Hearts but I never tryed it.

So I have yet to pick up the cpp cause I was holding out for Nyko one but unfortunately they cancelled it. I played RE:R but I had to use the face buttons which I find annoying so I am wondering to someone whos use to playing FPS on the 360 like Borderlands, Left 4 Dead etc. Does the cpp make it feel more like playing a fps on the Xbox when you play RE:R?

Don't you just hate it when people say, "They should've redesigned it with dual-analogue circle pads."? Yeah, me too because the Circle Pad Pro isn't just a second analogue circle pad. It's also trigger buttons. Plus, it would be like Nintendo saying, "Screw you, 3DS adopters. The 3DS XL was redesign not just to be a bigger version of the 3DS, but also has the second circle pad PLUS the z-triggers built in!" Seriously, Nintendo cares enough about their customers to not screw them over like that.
