      you are first then i should award you as the best gay fagot ever existed in this terrible and horrible planet

      1. Wow.

        I love the way people criticise planet Earth so much, I simply blame everyone causing global warming for ruining Earth.

        I wish I can just go and live on Mars, Of course not in the air! In an airlocked dome I will live in… However… Mars is a lonely place.

        Also if you are telling me to go to some other planet orbiting another star, I will still wont except due to obvious reasons.

        As we live on Earth lets make this planet rock more and lets not criticise it as it’s our only current home ;)

  1. I’ve just bought Kid Icarus yesterday. I wasn’t really convinced on this title, but all the positive reviews made me take the right decision. I’TS AN OUTSTANDING TITLE!!! Quite enjoyable, and the base for the 3DS it’s not gimmikry, but it’s actual quite useful and not too large as I thought!
    Playing in the bus without it, it’s a good experience too! The control scheme doesn’t hurt my wrist as I thougt! The graphics, humor, gameplay, voice acting, even the menus are quite outstanding!

    I thought I wouldn’t change “Mario Kart 7” as my Favorite Title, but this one certainly has the title from now on =D

      that peice of shit is enjoyable? GIVE US A BREAK.Kid icarus is for 3 years old little babies who they believe that angels exist HAHAHAHA.da game if for the toilet

      1. And if you don’t like the game skip it.

        You know, any console has bad games… just skip it if you don’t like it.

        Anyway, you don’t have to believe in angels to play the game. It’s basically saying that you won’t play Darksiders because it has magic and you don’t believe in it.

        1. Stop replying to that guy! You’re never going to make any point he will agree with. Stop feeding the trolls everyone.

          1. Sci-Fi = Realistic. (Halo, Metroid, Ghost Recon)

            Fantasy = Fake. (Do I have to say a massive list because it’s simply to big)

            Thats the rule these days to the looks of it. to be honest, I agree.

            Really though, I’m not a fantasy fan.

      2. i hope u find a better tittle on any other platform this month on wait u cant silly bastard vita is for failures

    2. I totally agree with this post. Kid Icarus is AMAZING. I enjoy the corny humor (and occasional adult themed comments).

      Controls were tricky at first, now I love them… I think it’s safe to say, this is a next Gen control scheme.

      MARK MY WORDS: you will see this control scheme again on WIIU. I guarantee it! :p

  2. Nintendo’s franchise have made its debut at #1 in Japan! Let’s hope Project Sora create a sequel for Pit’s newest adventure.

  3. siegfried von schroder

    when microsoft create the 720 the nintendo wii U will be forgotten for ever just like wii,gamecube,n64 and NES DID!

    1. NES was one of the first TV game consoles, it can’t be forgoten.

      Also the Commodore 64 will never be forgotten ;)

  4. I am soooo happy to see this!!!!! GO ICARUS!!!!!! I love this game sooooo much. Not even pussy me want… my girl get upset at me and i just let her play it and we are all good. I gotta order a copy for hers. I really hope they make a sequel.

    GET N OR GET THE FUCK OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Keep kicking ass, Nintendo. I knew this game was going to sell well. It’s only going to get better as we approach E3. Next up for the 3DS should be Luigi’s Mansion 2.

    Leave luck to heaven.

  7. The software rankings are always half Nintendo/Sony
    But the hardware charts, OMG!
    Vita is in real trouble, the PSP is almost outselling it 2x

    How long until sony realises that price matters?

    HAHAHAHA!! Just imagine that microsoft will buy nintendo… wouldn’t that be THE GREATEST THING!

    1. siegfried von schroder

      microsoft will buy nintendo and make that horrible company into a studios and microsoft won’t allow nintendo to make girlish video games like mario or zelda and they’ll tell them to be serious developers! ahhhhhhhhhh come on microsoft make that happen,nintendo doesnt deserve to be a company witch makes games for babies and girls!!!!!

      1. Umm… Microsoft made Kinectimals and Kinect sports which are for kids.

        Also Rachet and Clank for Playstation is primarly aimed at kids.

        Also Mature games Nintendo published have been: Xenoblades, Metroid, Conkers Bad Fur Day and many more.

        Every console you find will have a kids game… it’s just because companies find gaps in market where there are not enough of that sort of stuff.

        1. siegfried von schroder

          games like ratchet and clank,super mario,etc are just casual games and casual games means ”babies”

          1. Oh your so right, kinect is so manly and Microsoft is loving that kinect. Kinect is for babies, little girls, and retards, you dumb shit.

  9. I love it, too. It’s a GREAT game. The latest issue of Nintendo Power comes with some AR Cards for those looking to collect more of them.

  10. SICKR!

    I’m sure I said a few days ago to give Siegfried a warning because of how much he is trolling, I said that at the part about Peteriuss also but you only replied at the peteriuss and not Siegfried.

    Siegfried is getting annoying so punish him please ;)

    1. siegfried von schroder

      sickr can not warn me for anything get a life when your playing nintendo games your mind transforms into a baby’s mind and that peteriuss who thinks that nintendo games are the best tell that little brat to buy a xbox and see whitch mark of consoles are the best!!
      cocky boy

  12. The VITA needs to get a system seller fast… If Sony’s sales carry on like this, It would be no surprise if the PS4 goes the Wii route. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  13. Alright Kid Icarus!!! I hope this game will convince Nintendo to make Kid Icarus games more frequently. Also I love how the 3DS is doing great on the handheld market. Those developers better be lining up at E3 this year.

  14. Congrats to Nintendo, Kid Icarus Uprising is a good game and deserves this success. Not that I was surprised by the 3DS outselling the PSP Vita by miles given the games the former has.

  16. good old 3DS, proving its market superiority over the vita at every turn. since the 3DS is still spectacularly outselling the vita even after worldwide launch, pachter’s hate is now focused on the Wii U in the saddest way possible, and IGN no longer dares put the 3DS and vita side-by-side in an article anymore. times are good
