Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

it does, though the internal manual only mentions it being an option to move Pit with instead of using the left one. Not sure if you can remap it (though I'm going to bet that you can)

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

Still works for lefties as a way to use the stylus on their left hand, I guess, still, it'd be cool to be able to move with the left pad and aim with the right pad.

Dunno if I'd use that though, stylus aiming can be a lot faster than a pad, even if it's not as confortable.

Anyway, got the game and finished the first four chapters and I love it! It's really fun and fast-paced, and gets really challenging if you raise the intensity level, so far I've only died once, but I haven't set the intensity any higher than 5.

I also love the dialogue, it's so stupid and bad and cheesy and awesome, seriously it's half of the game's appeal.

And I haven't even tried the multiplayer game! I got a friend who also got it and I can't wait 'till we play Together.
Yeah, I'm glad they made a vast difference between the difficulties. I couldn't survive any Reaper attacks on level 4 intensity and higher. Barely with level 3.

The dialogue is hilarious. xD Especially when you get to Pandora's level, you get to this tank thingy and a conversation starts up:

"Pit: So what's a tank doing in here anyways?
Pandora: I thought I'd get my driver's license. Oh, but then I found out that I didn't have any hands to steer."

XD

The multiplayer doesn't require you to have any players, y'know. It's like Metroid Prime Hunters, you can just do the multiplayer and play with 5 other CPU's. I'm glad for that.

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

Having tried out the game, I don't really MIND the stylus controls for aiming, as they do work. I'm just curious as to how using another circle pad would feel!

I have yet to actually try the multiplayer, though. Hopefully it will be enjoyable.

When I tried to go into multiplayer it wanted an internet connection. :| But if I have the option of doing CPU-only battles, why do I have to be connected for that.

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

I just tried multiplayer for the first time about an hour ago. It's seriously fun, much better than what I was expecting. The only thing I don't like is how a friend can't join your lobby if you're in a With Anyone match. Otherwise, both Light vs. Dark and Free-For-All are addicting as hell.

What weapons are you guys using for now, anyways? I'm using these two right now:

Gaol Blade

Range: One-and-a-half stars
Melee: One-and-a-half stars

Melee defense +1
Poison +1
Running speed +1

Value: 177

and:

Eyetrack Orbitars

Range: Two-and-a-half stars
Melee: N/A

Shot defense +1
Knockback defense +2
Shot homing +2
Dash cont. fire +3
Melee combo +2
Full-health boost +4

Value: 253

I got the orbitars from the last match I played online. It was some kind of random reward that went to me...As someone who's only completed Chapters 1-4, that's a pretty beastly weapon as far as the attributes go.

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

I'm still experimenting with different weapons, so I still don't really have a "favorite".

I think I'm going to be sticking to claws in general, even if they have pretty much no range, they're quite fast and do a lot of damage. Still, I haven't yet tried every kind of weapon, so who knows.

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

I still can't really choose a favorite weapon class. The Gaol Blade is a super fun weapon for me to use right now, though. I thought the Samurai Blade was nice, but the Gaol's projectile is way better and is still a solid melee weapon.

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

This game is awesome. Seriously.

I just got it yesterday and wow.


My only complaint with the game are the controls - even if you can configure them to suit how you play it best. So far there aren't any controls that suit me. And the camera controls are a bit of a pain too, even if you set them up to slow down or to speed up etc.

So I guess I gotta get use to those small issues.

You don't have to go online, just choose the local play. I don't think I was clear that it worked on both modes; sorry about that.

And on the topic of weapons, I really got attached to the bow right now. My favorite classes for single player are...

-Blade
-Claws
-Bow

And for multiplayer I absolutely LOVE to use the arm weapon. Holy s*** is it effective. I did Free-for all, and I tried to use a sword. LOL. Then I used an Arm called the "End-all Arm". My god, I could rape a crowd of 4 in one tight room and they'd literally try to avoid me when they respawned. It has a two-star melee and no stars for the range, but that doesn't matter when I'm dealing 80 damage points a pop (measured from the weapon test mode). Also, a must-have skill is Super Armor if you're gonna use it. That way you won't be killed by Claw users, which will annihilate you.

Anyways, my favorite weapons in general are...

-Viper Blade
Ranged: **
Melee: **
Value: 195
Poison +1
Stamina +1
Knockback recovery +1
____________________________________________

-End-all Arm
Ranged: None
Melee: ** (Don't be fooled by this, it's effing POWERFUL)
Value: 190
Overall defense +1
Knockback defense +3
Standing ch. shot +4
_____________________________________________

-Diving Bow
Ranged: ***
Melee: ****
Value: 226
Knockback defense +2
Shot range +1
Melee dash attack +3
Speed -1
______________________________________________

-Pandora Claws
Ranged: **
Melee: **
Value: 193
Overall defense +2
Heart bonus +1
______________________________________________

-Black Club (rarely do I use this though)
Ranged: ***
Melee: *
Value: 281
Overall defense +2
Shot range +3
Speed +3
Side-dash ch. shot +2
Melee combo +3

...So yeah. Also, you have to turn on Spotpass from the menu. Believe it or not, the game didn't come with it on. So if you want free weapon gems, turn on Spotpass from I think the options menu.

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

YES I GOT A FAVORITE WEAPON I DON'T EVEN WANT TO TEST OTHERS.

♣♣♣♣ing Drill Arm.

It's awesome.

It shoots giant ♣♣♣♣ing drills.

And does A LOT OF DAMAGE on melee.

What're the stats on yours? I have a Drill Arm and it sucks compared to the End-all Arm.

Ranged:
Melee: ***** (and a white star, dunno what that means)
Value: 212
Overall defense +1
Paralysis +3
Forward-dash cont. fire +1

One melee dash attack deals over 100 damage in the weapon test room thing, I'm seriously in love with this thing, got it by fusing two weapons that were already were pretty strong, can't remember wich ones, though.

If there's a white star I think that means a half. So you have five and a half stars. Dang. Mine has one.

I bet my End-all Arm can still beat you!

Re: Kid Icarus Uprising: General Thread

Bows are nice, orbitars are great, but claws... they are the best!

I got a pair of Wolf Claws from a Light vs. Dark match:

Spoiler: Wolf Claws  
Ranged: *****
Melee: -

Paralysis +4
Speed +2
Forward-dash cont. fire +2
Melee combo +1
Effect duration +2
Shot homing -1

Value: 282


Combine this with a Lv. 3 Lightweight power (increases movement speed and prevents tiring out at the expense of lowered defense), and... it's fun. I managed to flank the other team right from the start of the match, and all 3 were dead within 30 seconds. Still lost the overall match.

The other weapon I'm currently using is a pair of Jetstream Orbitars.

Spoiler: Jetstream Orbitars  
Ranged: ****
Melee: **

Overall defense +1
Burning +2
Evasion +4
Dash cont. fire +1
Melee dash attack +4

Value: 292


The bonus in melee dash attack makes it a really weird weapon to use... It can shoot from really far away, but the strongest attack is a forward dash melee attack (deals like... 120 damage)

The multiplayer is fun enough that I've only played 3 campaign levels so far. Sometimes you end up in rooms with people that are doing literally nothing, which sucks, but other times you end up with 5 good players, and things get really intense.

I don't have it. I am waiting until I get the Wii U for any more game purchases. I've also never been a fan of KI. Neither am I a fan of Third Person Shooters that much. But we'll see, I might change my mind some time.

So by the reactions of people in this thread, the game is worth it then?
