Cobra commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

Really cool, will so be my new fave Smash character. A real surprise since he has only been in two games on Nintendo systems to my knowledge, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded & Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. But with Smash and Final Fantasy Explorers, that be a total of four games.



Cobra commented on Reminder: There's Only One More Week Left To V...:

With Nintendo, Sega, Capcom, and Namco all represented, I want to see some Konami back in the mix. Snake would be the easy choice since he's an existing character... but my vote went to Sparkster, Konami's forgotten mascot.

I loved light gun games to death in the day. Probably why the Saturn is my favourite system. It's a shame the tech can't be used anymore. It just isn't the same with Wiimotes, even with gun attachments.



Cobra commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

The lack of new software is really starting to get me down. What happened to the 3rd party support? Heck, even the Dreamcast had more momentum than this. I would really like to see some kind of bounce back... But I should look at it more realistically and pick up a PS4 once a slim or similar version launches since I don't think there is a lot more software ahead for the Wii U... regardless of how long it has left before the NX.



Cobra commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

Honestly, they shouldn't even be talking about another system. There may be no hope of taking away the crown from Sony this gen, but they weren't that far away from Microsoft, and if more effort went towards the Wii U, now more than ever in its time of need... it could have come a comfortable second... instead of feeling like a waste of money to people who brought it in hopes of having a system for the long haul. We may still get some really great games for it... but when the company behind it is already working on their next system and even tells you that, confidence in it goes out the window.



Cobra commented on Koei Tecmo Says Hyrule Warriors Has Breathed N...:

I've enjoyed a lot of these types of games, but to be honest, Hyrule Warriors really stands out of the pack... so I don't no if we can really expect Hyrule Warrior fans to snap up their other games. Hyrule just mixed it up so much better, added checkpoints to long battles, usable items to solve problems, etc. The other games, although I enjoy them, never held my interest for as long. The only other game I'd recommend people try would be Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes on the Wii. It was my favourite of these types of games until Hyrule Warriors, and my most played Wii game.



Cobra commented on Harmonix Explains Why Rock Band 4 Isn’t Comi...:

I bet it has more to do with them wanting to sell more plastic instruments, and since the Wii U is still backwards compatible with all the instruments already released for the Wii, the potential to rip customers off by making them buy everything all over again isn't there.



Cobra commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

Spent countless hours with games like Snatcher & Dune. The two best for the system. But I really enjoyed everything Mega-CD. For the time, the FMV stuff may be laughed at now, but it was mind blowing back then. Total disbelief that a game could have actual video or cartoon footage.



Cobra commented on Sonic Boom Gets a Whopping 1GB+ Update in Euro...:

@BensonUii I have Sonic Lost World... from what I've played of the demo of Boom, it was a lot better in my opinion... Wish I brought it instead of Lost World. Amazingly, one thing people complain about with Boom is the lack of speed for a Sonic game, but Lost World is a lot slower and you even have to hold down a button to make Sonic run the entire time... go figure.



Cobra commented on Video: This Theatrhythm Dragon Quest Trailer P...:

The Theatrhythm gameplay seems to work better with Dragon Quest judging by this trailer. But damn, I still hate the Theatrhythm character visual style... it's about the only thing killing my joy of these games.



Cobra commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

The Wii U needs this as a global release. A game that makes proper use of the gamepad. Maps and off screen play are such half-arsed uses of the gamepad it might as well have never been created if that's all it is destined for.



Cobra commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

Yeah, it's been there since before Watch_Dogs was even released... the fact they still haven't removed it at least give me hope. Pfft, but at this rate we'll get this around the time Watch_Dogs 2 is out for everything else.



Cobra commented on Legendary Actor and Comedian Robin Williams Ha...:

Really sucks, has been a favorite comedian of mine for as long as I can remember. Toys has been my favourite movie ever since it came out... really going to miss him.

Very sad, but my thoughts go out to his wife & children.
