Fellow Lefties! I hear I much complaining over Kid Icarus' Controls. Why?

I've been getting more and more into the game as I go on and I'm Chapter 6 and I must say, after taking the time to get used to the default Touchscreen + Circle Pad controls I just keep getting better and better. I only got the game(and my blue 3DSXL as well) a week ago and I'm already on Intensity 5 and still climbing as I keep playing.

I just don't understand the complaining about it. As long as you have something to rest your 3DS on - like the KI stand, or your leg, or a table, etc - the game clearly plays best with this setup. It is so ridiculously accurate I kind of akin it to mouse inputs. >.>' I know, I know. Not exact. But it is pretty damn precise enough that it feels as seemless.

Another thing I don't get is the complaining about cramping. The game is nothing as intensive as what you did in Metroid Prime Hunters, and THAT gave my hands cramps like most people.

Well. That is all. Why all the complaining? :3

I played through the whole thing with the default controls and I'm left handed and there was literally no problem at all. I just used the stand and put it on a big flat pillow on my lap and everything worked fine. Even the 3D. I don't see why all these people complain about it because I can't think of any other way they could have made it.

I'm fine with the controls themselves, but my hands do cramp due to the size and shape of the 3DS. I feel like the XL would solve my problem, but I haven't gotten one yet.

Well of course the ones that played it fine come in to essentially reassure. Lol. Oh you guys. Maybe most of the naysayers are gone then. But that's impossible, right? Every game the naysayers are SOMEWHERE.

I'm right handed so I don't have a problem. However I can understand lefties having a problem. You are probably just better at adapting with your other hand. In my case, If I try to put a stylus in my left hand, it will start chewing on it and drool all over my 3ds it is that mentally challenged. So again, I can understand why they are upset. You are just pro.

Most of the people who are complaining are actually right-handed. For lefties, perhaps about 25% of the ones I've seen on the boards are having an issue with it.
