Standageddon: Kid Icarus: Uprising comes with a stand

10:00 PM on 01.15.2012 // Jonathan Holmes

Kid Icarus: Uprising will be bundled with some free AR cards and a special stand for your 3DS. Placing your console on the stand will make it easier to play the game, as you wont have to support the weight of the console with your hands while using the game's stylus-and-circle pad control scheme. Some would say that this is a sign that the Kid Icarus:Uprising's developers needed a crutch, as they weren't able to create a game that could be played optimally with the 3DS's standard design. Others will say that it's pretty cool for Nintendo to pack in a stand for free with every copy of the game, just in case players want the option to try it out.

My thought is that this stand is PROOF that the 3DS is DOOMED (again) and that the redesigned version of the console, now code named the "3DStand Double: Nub Lite (3DStD:NL)" is coming out in 2012, rendering the current 3DS model USELESS FOREVER

Thanks a lot Nintendo for forcing me to buy a 3DS when it was first released and for not having a stand built into every console from day one. Because of you I wasted money on games that I loved like Super Mario Land 3D, Cave Story 3D, Bit.Trip SAGA, and VVVVVV, and had to endure the pain of playing them all without a stand. Way to make me feel loved, Nintendo [/sarcasm]! If you keep abusing your customers like this, you're going to learn pretty quickly that having the best selling home and handheld consoles in the market for the last 5 years wont get you very far. Without my love, you are nothing. 

YOU HEAR ME, NINTENDO!?!? MAKE ME LOVE YOU!!! OTHERWISE YOU ARE NOTHING!!!
