@TanookiSurprise I use the little finger of the Stylus hand(left for me) as support but it probably only works because I have big hands and the normal, non-XL, 3DS...

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

This is exactly how I hold it. Works like a charm.

@TanookiSurprise Well I hold my 3DS as mentioned above me, and rest it on my leg when I sit down.

Let's talk about the main star of Kid Icarus: Uprising... Pit. I found Pit to be a generally likeable guy but I also found him to be annoying. I also found his undying affection for Paluetena to be over the top and silly at times. I'm also not a big fan of Dark Pit or Pitoo but I'm gonna talk about Pit for now.
Why didn't the game give Pit some background and explain his past so the gamer can understand why Pit is the way he is???
I was hoping that the gamer could play as Pit when he was HUMAN in the beginning. We get to see Pit and his family and friends in a nice town. Pit is wearing normal clothes. Then Medusa attacks his town. Pit tries to fight back against the monsters but he can't keep up so he dies... Queen Palutena sees this and takes PITY on Pit. She gives Pit the chance to come back to life as a angel for her. A chance to become an angelic warrior fighting against monsters and keeping peace. Pit is grateful to Queen Palutena so he takes the job....
THAT IS WHAT I WAS HOPING FOR AS PIT'S BACKGROUND. It would explain why Pit is so loyal to Queen Palutena.
I don't hate Pit but the lack of any explanation of his past is utterly terrible.
Dark Pit aka Pitoo is somewhat interesting. Isn't he supposed to represent the DARKNESS in Pit's heart??? Why didn't the game do a cool thing like maybe Pit is secretly angry he died and holds a bitter grudge against Medusa??? Sadly, the game went a different direction with Dark Pit and I quickly caught on to the game's true purpose of Dark Pit: "Oohhh... Look at Pit but with darker hair, darker clothes, and a barely better personality! He's our Riku (Pitoo) to our Sora (Pit)!". Hahah thats how I feel about it. The controls takes some time to get used to but I can handle it.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

@Gioku LOL. Don't get me started on Hades in the game. There's a bad guy in Kingdom Hearts 1 in the Colisseum world. He has blue flames for hair and he is a villain in the game and was a villain in the Hercules movie. Was his name Hades, too? I would have much preferred that guy's personality in Kingdom Hearts than what we got as Hades in Kid Icarus: Uprising. That guy with the blue flames for hair was witty, powerful, and teased the gamer. Then again... was Uprising INTENTED to be a comedy? Was the story supposed to be funny? Its weird because the game got incredibly serious at times. Example: The Pyron Arc and the Chaos Arcs.

@Blastoise-san: Funny you should mention Pyrrhon, he was my favorite character, by far. An exaggerated, stereotypical super-hero. Doesn't get much better than that. :P
And I liked Hades, too; he kept me amused. I referred to him as being a "fata**". :P

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Pyrrhon was cool. The Arc that showed him betraying Pit which caused the Reset Bomb was cool. Pyrrhon reminds me so much of that guy who betrayed the Incredibles in the Incredible movie.

So I take it you've never seen Disney's Hercules, then? Yes, Disney's Hades is very funny and serious at the same time, but so is Nintendo's Hades. Since it's been a while since I've seen the film, I won't comment on who I think is the better Hades. For now, I think Nintendo's is just as cool as Disney's.

Also, I don't know if Pit's backstory as a human would work. He always referred to the people below as "the humans" and doesn't seem to have a personal connection to any of them, so I doubt he was ever a human and was directly created as an angel by Palutena.

@DestinyMan Yeah I saw Disney's Hercules movie. I just forgot that one guy's name was Hades in that movie, too. I prefer him more than Uprising's Hades. If Pit was always a angel and created by Palutena....

Maybe I love this game too much, but your error in this statement was like a knife to the heart.

Hated the controls so I'd say I was disappointed. I was so excited when I bought it and couldn't wait for my shift at work to be over so I could play it but when I finally started really playing it and making progress I just couldn't get used to the controls. I really wanted to like this game too but it just never happened. It's still sitting on my shelf though with the rest of my games so i guess that says something.

@Blastoise
I think the story was meant to be comedic and lighthearted. It does touch on some darker stuff towards the end, but overall I thought it was just a fun romp. The characters are always making puns and breaking the fourth wall, which I really enjoyed. I guess you would be disappointed if you tried to take the story too seriously.

And on the topic of Hades, I think he's one of the best villains in recent years. He's very nonchalant about everything, but at the same time, has some pretty dark plans.

Hades is what is known as "Affably Evil"... at least most of the time. :P

Hahaha.... I don't HATE this game. I just think it has flaws. Some big flaws and some tiny flaws. Thats my opinion. I'm giving it the same score I gave Luigi Mansion 3D. I'm giving it a 8/10. They both show off the 3DS power, have interesting controls, lighthearted stories with some darkness, and ended in such a way that makes the gamer want more (as in story). Luigi's Mansion 3D aburptly ended and all we get for beating Kid Icarus: Uprising's story is a freaking boss galore "chapter". When I first played that special chapter, I was like: "Okay, this is kinda cool." It quickly turned into: "Just how many bosses can you kill before you say to yourself: 'This is stupid and I deserve more for beating the game'?. Heck, even Super Mario 3D Land offers a special level for gamers who get all the stars as Luigi and Mario. That level was more fulfilling than Uprising's special level.
Lets not forget that donating hearts to Paluenta and Viridi doesn't give the gamer any kind of reward... Hahah what a let down D:
Once again... I actually LIKE Kid Icarus: Uprising. I don't want it to appear that I'm trashing it. I DO like this game. The first chapter in the game should've been a freaking demo on Eshop. That could've got more people interested in the game :D
