    Amazon have confirmed my order has dispatched too. Really hope this charts well in the UK. I know MGS didn't chart at all, understandably so, and Revelations on had a couple of good weeks itself, but this appears to be the strongest of all 3 games, critically, and deserves some success.

    It's a hard one to judge sales wise. Its a revival of an old fairly unknown series, some people might be put off by the controls, I haven't seen any tv ads and it's not getting stocked in Game (although nothing else is seemingly). On the other hand its been hyped by Nintendo since the 3ds launched, it's made by a great dev team, is packed full of content and it's getting good reviews.
    right now the uk Market is in such an odd place and the 3DS is only doing ok so I think initial sales are not going to be great but i reckon it could go on to become one of those games that sells decent amounts for a long time.

    There is a tv advert roz, though I've only seen it 2 or 3 times in total. Strangely they describe Pit as "Nintendo's newest hero". That doesn't seem right.

    Anyway, I'm obviously looking forward to this game, it's just a shame I can't afford any new games at the moment. I haven't even picked up RE: Revelations yet. :(

    Fair enough, I don't watch much TV so must have missed it.

    Just read on Neogaf that Japanese wholesalers are running out of stock, which is good news but might not be true.

    I had this one down as a one to wait until it gets cheap one. But I'm getting increasingly hyped about it.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Will get this as soon as I've finished MGS. I can't afford to keep buying games and not playing them.

    Yeah I feel a little guilty getting this despite my massive backlog. I keep saying I won't buy any more but then I do. Oh well.

    Some guy is making a list with pics of all the AR cards, I am not sure what they really do but I think they could give you Smash Bros esque trophies. Obviously the names of some of the cards are spoilers

    I saw the second part of that anime is up on Nintendo Video, unfortunatly it replaced the first one. In America they had all 3 parts up at the same time but here we have Sky adverts and One Direction getting in the way.

    But I can't get it on release, my Birthday isn't for 2 weeks!

    Ooh, they have the cards on the Club Nintendo site at 250 stars. I was saving up for the Wii SNES Controller, but I've ordered a pack of cards anyway to see what they're like. I bloody love cards :)

    My copy arrived a short while ago. The packaging is confusing and the stand seems much smaller than I expected, for some reason. Not touched the game yet.

    Edit - What do you think will happen if I register my game today? Guess i'm about to find out!

    I was playing Xenoblade when it arrived. A game I fear I may never complete, so it dominates my time off work. Will have to give it a spin now, whilst i'm off the Wii.

    Up to chapter 4, not sure i'm enjoying it yet. Graphics are gorgeous. The constant voice over is annoying but tongue in the cheek and fun at times. The game would have benefited loads from the CPP. I love the way the difficulty slider works and there seems to be a tonne of options and collectables.

    But, It's just not grabbing me for a Nintendo game yet.

    I've still got to complete Revelations and i've not even touched MGS 3 yet. If I stop with Xenoblade now, I may never pick it up again. :/

    As for Kid Icarus, first impressions are good. Visually it looks great. Even better than in the internet videos. I've only played half hour, or just the first chapter, but it plays well. There are a ton of control customisation options that you can test as you tweak, which is a nice addition. Spent a good 10 minutes just fine tuning things to my liking.

    The game instantly recognises the CPP too, which is convenient, but you can't set up a dual slider control method. I can get you as far as setting the aiming to the right circle of the CPP, but both circle pads have to be doing the same thing. That is to say if one is used for aiming, so is the other. You can't set one for movement and the other for aiming. I guess the game recognises both sliders as being the same thing.

    Oh well, will just have to give in and accept it for what it is. Bah!

    I've got it. Being a left hander the controls are taking time to get use to, even with the circle pad pro. I know they said they didn't have time to fully support the use of both left and right control sticks together, but they should of made time for it!

    As I can either:

    Move with the left thumb stick. Good
    Aim with stylus in right hand. Bad

    Or

    Move with right thumb stick. Bad
    Aim with stylus in left hand. Good

    Or

    Aim with the left or right stick. Good
    Move with the ABXY buttons. Bad

    How long would of it taken to of made moving with left stick and aiming with the right stick!?

    I can't get the AR cards to work either! But what I've played and seen so far is very Impressive.

    See I was an idiot and didn't get the free cpp with resi evil and as a leftie I think it is gonna be a steep learning curve but I got used to the controls on metroid prime hunters (and they were alot more complicated) so hoping this won't take too long to get used to

    Edit 1&2 because my iPhone dicks me over constantly apparently a cpp is a cop and a leftie is a lector whatever the hell a cop is haha

    The horror, THE HORROR! Shopto delivered it to my old work building - we moved about 3 months ago and I didn't think to update my bloody account. So annoyed, this game was going to be the super sweet end to a tiring week.
    It's in redirect limbo which will mean it should get here tomorrow with any luck (I have bad luck) or will be sent back to them.

    Epic sad face. I was looking forward to getting off of the Resi:Revelations Raid mode crack. Looks like I'll need to wait to break the habit.

    You can also "buy" a pack of AR Cards with 250 of your Nintendo Stars. It claims they are random so I've just bought a few packs with the Stars I had due to expire soon.
