    Thanks for the tip. Got the magazine today. It's actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be, although some reviews seem quite generous. The cards I got are:

    Three sacred treasures
    Fiends cauldron
    End all arm
    Zuree
    Grenade
    Viper blade

    I really like the magazine. It's clearly written by genuine Nintendo fans, so there is some bias, though nowhere near as bad as you'd think - they're just generally quite lenient, much as I am. Usually has some good features too :)

    I got that Three Sacred Treasures so if there is a card exclusive to the magazine, that must be it. I also got Porcuspine, Underworld Gatekeeper, Girin, Spike Ball and Rare Treasurefish.

    Completed the story now and thought it was utterly brilliant.
    The story was epic, threw in some real surprises and is genuinely very funny. The different characters had plenty of personality, Pit reminded me a lot of Guybrush Threepwood, Pyron and Hades were both hilarious as well
    Best game on the 3DS imho. 10/10

    Nice to see the promo pack of cards is quite random. I also received the Three Sacred Treasures card along with Reaper, Guardian Orbitars, Impact Amplifier, Orb Staff and Mik.

    Need to get back to the campaign. Only up to Chapter 7 I believe.

    Does anyone agree that this game is crying out for an eShop demo? I think a fair few people would take the plunge if they simply had access to the first Chapter which is essentially a training level what with Palutena explaining the controls etc.

    I am 39 and I loved every second of it. It takes a little getting used to the controls (for me anyway) but other than it is a joy to play. Get it now! :-)

    Each level starts of Schmup then moves on to third person bits that have quite an old school feel about them.

    I found it to be alot of fun, the flying sections are really intense on higher difficulties and it's nice to have the third person sections if only because you can stop to take a breather before carrying on

    Cool, is the circle pad pro required or is it perfectly playable without one?

    If you are right handed its useless, if you are left handed its playable without it but you have to use the abxy buttons for movement

    The cpp only really comes into effect if your a leftie as it reverses the control scheme.

    I am a leftie and I can tell you it is just as easy to use the buttons

    Nintendo have announced they're bringing the cards to shops, as well as a nice collectors album thanks to a new partnership with Panini. So much for ever having spare change in my wallet! I really can't help it, I just love collecting cards.

    I have dived back into this to do some achievements, unlock more stuff and to play the multiplayer after a few days off. Its so good.
    I was playing LvsD last night and was in a closely fought one on one which I was on the brink of losing to a guy with a club. I saw a battered prawn over his shoulder, dived past him, picked it up and fired it instantly on the turn. Luckily I hit and seeing the guy scurry off before I went in to finish him off made it one of the most satisfying multiplayer kills I have ever had. Great stuff

    You won't regret it. Fantastic game, seems like so much has been put into it and is great fun going back and trying early levels on higher intensity. Best thing on 3DS imo.

    Best game on the 3DS ruined by lack of proper CPP support, well if your left handed anyway.. I hope they create a patch for it, if they can patch Mario Kart 7, why not this game!?

    Not shooting in the air gets a speed boost? Something so simple, yet I had no idea. Almost everything there is stuff I had no idea about! So much more depth than I'd thought, and I thought it was pretty deep to start with. Even basics like what Fireworks are actually for.

    Well worth watching, should anyone else be hesitant. No story spoilers, should that matter to anyone.
