Seems I was late to the party on this Discuss the game here. I finished the game yesterday. Overall, I think it was great throughout, though the ending seemed a bit rushed. What is your best/favorite weapon?

 

Lately, I was able to obtain an Ore Club with a value of 320 and six stars in both ranged and melee, so that's probably one of my best.

 

Also, is anyone up for some online matches?

This would probably fit better in the Official Video Game discussion topic...

But on the subject: I LOVED the game. I don't think the ending felt particularly rushed. How, in your opinion, might they have extended it? I thought it was a solid game, and I'd love to see either a sequel or an HD remake on the Wii U (which would make it easier to appreciate the gorgeous levels as well as offer a dual-stick option for folks who complained about that).

My best weapon is a set of Pandora Claws with a high ranking (I forget what, but it's definitely >300). They've got an amazing forward-dash charge shot, as well as creating a formidable shield with a backward-dash charge shot. I have higher ranked weapons (as well as better weapon gems from Streetpass), but I love the power, defense and movement speed those provide.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to play online or otherwise since my 3DS had an R button that wouldn't register presses consistently, so I sent it in for repairs. It's already returned to my house but I'm housesitting elsewhere so I probably won't get it until the end of the weekend. But I've had a hankering to get back into the game now that it's fixed, so I might be able to play online!

That game is flipping awesome. I don't think the ending was rushed at all, The Hades fight encompassed two complete levels. I also like how it loves to make fun of itself, and use fourth wall breaks to nice affect.

 

I still need some better weapons, I've been trying to obtain the Palutena blade and bow, but I can't seem to fulfill the requirements, no matter how fast I push through the levels.

Yeah, the Hades fight was good. What I eeally meant was that

Still, it didn't really detract any; The game was still awesome.

And he 4th wall breakings were cool too. The one about metroids was particularly amusing.

I never finished it honestly. I liked the game that I played, but I found the controls incredibly unintuitive and actually quite painful to use given enough time. It was like playing Burnout on the original Xbox with the super fat original controller, except somehow worse. You know you're doing something wrong when your game is so difficult to play that you require a custom base stand to do it without getting carpal tunnel syndrome. And this is on a PORTABLE console. We're getting into VirtualBoy territory now. It felt like I was playing a third person Metroid Prime Hunters or Bionicle Heroes DS.

Don't get me wrong, I WANTED to like it, but the game itself was fighting against the structure of the human hand and just wouldn't let me, so I ultimately ended up taking it back after like.. the third world. Maybe when there's a 3DS emulator, or Virtual Console service in the far off future where it doesn't take a contortionist to play it, I'll give it another shot, but not today. :P

The game is pretty addictive. It's got dialogue that obliterates the 4th wall, fast paced gameplay, and (mostly) likeable characters. I still have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to weapon fusion :P so some of my weapons are rather sub par but they usually get the job done.

Also, I'm attempting to complete Chapter 13 on 9.0 but I always keep getting finished on the Dark Pit fight. Does anyone know how to beat him safely? I want to be able to complete it with a Palm so I can also get the treasure hunt achievement.

Anyway, got my 3DS back! So to clarify about my weapon of choice:

Pandora Claws
Ranged: 6 stars
Melee: 3.5 stars
Value: 325

Knockback defense +1
Shot homing +1
Backward-dash charge shot +1
Dash continuous fire +4
Melee dash attack +1
In-peril autododge +1

So yeah, pretty sweet.

I've started replaying the levels in order just to re-experience the story and get used to the controls again. Not really planning on trying the highest difficulties yet, even though I've still got a fair number of treasure hunt goals to meet (four in Palutena's, 18 in Viridi's, and 52 in Hades's).
