Kid Icarus: Uprising is finally here! If you're playing, indicate as such in the game database.
Masahiro Sakurai's shooter-action-adventure finally hits the 3DS. The game is packed with tons of content, different control options, beautiful 3D graphics, and a robust multiplayer mode. This is a game that will be really fun to dig into because there is so much beneath the surface. Let's share our discoveries and discuss the latest great 3DS game! As well as celebrate that Sakurai is finally now working on the next Smash Bros
Please, though remember to spoiler tag any story elements until most people have finished the game.
Online multiplayer call to arms Here's a list of all the folks who are interested in Uprising's online multiplayer mode. Post your friend code if you're interested and it'll get added here.
My weakness in multiplayer are melee folk who rush at me. If I'm in a ranged battle with someone there's no contest, but if they rush towards me it throws me off my game. Played some FFA last night and finished 2nd about 8 games in a row, second only to a dude with a magnus club who would rush at me. I was able to kill him a few times, but mostly he was owning my ass. Once he left I racked up 10-12 first place finishes in a row
Then I played through chapter twenty-one and got docked down to 4.5 intensity after starting at 7.5. Ugh.
That chapter was amazing. I loved the mystery behind it and of course, it's completely different from everything you've been through up to that point. What a wonderful departure from the expected! As I was playing through that chapter my imagination was on fire.
So was mine. I thought that with Palutena reluctant on explaining the history behind Icarus that maybe all of this time, Pit WAS Icarus, though just unknowingly controlling another body. Of course that was far from the truth
Any preference on light vs dark or free for all? I don't really have a preference, so maybe 3 of one then 3 of the other. When we do FFA, I'll add two bots if it's just us two and leave them at default 5 difficulty. Let me know if you prefer something different!
These are some great games @anon_mastermind! Your laser staff is deadly. FFA is pretty exciting, I think!
Edit: I think you had to bail once I created the room to go back to playing LvD. But it was fun, we seemed to be pretty well matched against one another. I'm so dumb sometimes and keep running without paying attention to the fact that I'm about to exhaust myself, resulting in being forced to stop and catch my breath. How embarrassing!
