<LINK REL="stylesheet" HREF="http://guidesmedia.ign.com/guides/uni/IGNE_style.css" TYPE="text/css"><i>Day in and day out you hear a lot from the IGN Nintendo team. Now we want to hear from you. What you'll find below is our weekly blogging feature. Here we ask you questions based on recent Nintendo events or games and ask you to blog your thoughts. The best responses will be featured later in the week, and may even win a cool prize. Read on for all the information on this week's blogging challenge!</i><br/><br/><DIV CLASS="IGNE_divider"></DIV><br/><br/>Another week, another community blogging challenge. But first, IGN Nintendo would like to thank you readers for making this weekly feature such a special/badass endeavor. The response to this series of articles has been astounding, and we can't thank you enough for stepping up to the blogging plate and starting some great Nintendo-related discussions. (Definitely! Thanks you guys! - Rich)<br/><br/>In order to shake things up and try to give more of a spotlight to those of you who are chosen as Bloggers of the Week, we're going to try something a little different this time around. Instead of an article <a target="_blank" href="http://wii.ign.com/articles/122/1221128p1.html">compiling selections from the best blogs</a>, we're going to feature these blog entries directly on the site. The result is that fewer blog posts will be highlighted each week - but those that do will be directly promoted on IGN 3DS and/or IGN Wii. Not a bad tradeoff, right? <br/><br/>Of course, we'll still strive to read as many submissions as possible, so rest assured your work has a very good chance of being seen if it's submitted. We're also going to experiment with using these weekly blogging challenges to compile data for a cool little side feature to go up at the end of the week - but more on that later.<br/><br/>For this week's question, it seems only fitting to open the floodgates and discuss that little 3DS title that just saw a stateside release this past Friday - Kid Icarus Uprising. There's been a lot of hype, anti-hype, controversy and speculation about this title, and now that many of you already have your hands on it, we want to hear what you think. Since Icarus features controls that take some time to get used to, we'd prefer it if you'd at least play through the first few chapters of the game, and at least toy with features like the Fiend's Cauldron and weapons fusing, before blogging.<br/><br/><img src="http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/121/1216423/kid-icarus-uprising-20120112003127467.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/>With that in mind... here are the questions we'd like you to blog about:<br/><br/><ul><br/><br/><li>What do you think about Kid Icarus Uprising's controls? Are they uncomfortable? Not a problem? Did you find an option/holding technique that made it work for you?<br/><br/><li>What do you think about the voice acting and running commentary during the main adventure? Too much? Just enough? Annoying? Delightful? Let us know!<br/><br/><li>What about Kid Icarus Uprising surprised you, in a good or bad way? It can be a feature, a gameplay mechanic, the visuals, anything - but be specific!<br/><br/><li>What are your overall thoughts about Uprising? Did it meet/exceed/fall short of your expectations? How so?<br/><br/><li>Finally, having played Uprising, what would you want to see from a sequel? More of the same, something with minor tweaks, or something completely different?<br/><br/></ul><br/><br/>That's all there is to it! Now all you have to do is go blog it up - just be sure to send us your links through Twitter or our IGN blogs (our info is at the bottom of this article). Please make your submissions <b>no later than Wednesday, March 28 at Noon PST.</b><br/><br/>And to motivate you a bit... <b>we're going to bribe you</b>. As mentioned, the best submissions will be promoted on the IGN 3DS page. <b>Among the blog posts chosen for promotion, we'll be singling out one or more as our Blog of the Week</b>. These chosen bloggers will win a random selection of <b>Kid Icarus Uprising AR cards</b>. You can only get these through special distributions such as this one, so don't miss your chance to make funny pictures like the one below using the game's AR viewer.<br/><br/><img src="http://wiimedia.ign.com/wii/image/article/122/1221614/kid-icarus-uprising-20120326014744474.jpg" /><br/>Does Pit's latest fly or fall?<br/><br/>Since we'll actually have to mail out this reward, for this week alone <b>only those who live in the United States are eligible for the prize</b>. Those outside the States are still welcome to participate in our blogging challenge, and may still have their submission chosen and featured - but again, they will be unable to take home this week's prize. Next week we'll go back to giving out download codes, so don't fret. If you're chosen, someone from IGN will contact you through e-mail (and your IGN wall), so keep an eye out, and be ready to respond! (And please don't ask us if you've won - we will be in touch.)<br/><br/>That all sound good? All that's left is to vote in the poll below, start blogging, and check back later this week for the results. We look forward to reading your entries!<br/><br/><center><script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="http://static.polldaddy.com/p/6080228.js"></script><br/><br/><noscript><a target="_blank" href="http://polldaddy.com/poll/6080228/">All things considered, how impressed are you with Kid Icarus Uprising?</a></noscript></center><br/><br/><DIV CLASS="IGNE_divider"></DIV><br/><br/><b><a target="_blank" href="http://my.ign.com/">Done blogging?</a></b> Send us a link through Twitter or our IGN blogs (info below), or leave it in the comments section of this article.
