Shiryu commented on Poll: Vote For Your Ten Must-Play Games On Nin...:

I just voted for "Ace Combat" and it still shows 0%! You guys really hurt my feelings like that, "Ace Combat" on 3DS is a luxury, something I would never believed even possible. Grab it if you see it on the shelves, you won't regret it!



Shiryu commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (New Nintendo ...:

This will help to bare the wait for Wii U's "Xenoblade Chronicles X". It remains my all time favorite Wii game and responsible for reigniting my passion for JRPG's. A great job by Monster Games cramping everything into the New 3DS.



Shiryu commented on Canned Shooter Dune: Ornithopter Assault Could...:

I would love to have that! The original "Dune" from Cryo Interactive remains one of my all time non-console video games and anything that would help expand their work into Frank Herbert's DUniverse would be a welcome addition to my collection.

And speaking of "Dune"... @Damo , did you check the article I submitted?



Shiryu commented on Rumour: Metal Gear Creator Hideo Kojima Is Lea...:

Kojima does amazing work, but today's Konami is everything but the stellar company that provided me with such amazing experiences during the 8 and 16 bit era, now a mere shadow of it's former self with but three franchises: "PES", "Castlevania" and "Metal Gear". I wish all the best for the rest of his career.



Shiryu commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

"Sonic Boom" is just the result of today's AAA standards industry: You put too much into a game made by not enough man power and I am often surprised how things like "Sonic Boom" and "Assassin's Creed Unity" don't happen every other month. Things need to change and we as the paying public need to clearly state "No!" to these games.



Shiryu commented on Review: Sky Kid (Wii U eShop / NES):

Regardless of score, my personal opinion is that I love it! I had played it before when I was young, got back into it again when I got "Namco's 50th Anniversary Museum" on GameCube and last year I saw an episode of Game Center CX where Arino took on this very same NES version. Single player offers a great challenge, but get a friend to play with you and it gets truly excellent.



Shiryu commented on Game Freak’s Director Explains Why TEMBO THE...:

I don't understand why these people thing we are too stupid to understand a simple fact. I wish they would just come out and say "We are not bringing this to Nintendo platforms because this is a business, we need to make money and current Nintendo install base numbers make it too risky for us to invest in development for them". Is that too hard to ask?



Shiryu commented on Chrono Trigger Turns 20, but is Ultimately Tim...:

For me and along with many of my friends, we could but look at it from afar as PAL European gamers. This is why we worshipped "Super Play" magazine for letting us know what was being released in Japan and the US and "Chrono Trigger" was just one of many Super Nintendo games I would love to have back in the day but it was just impossible. I might not have played it in 1995, but when I did, I truly understood why it was special and it's one of the reasons why the SNES is still my all time favourite console. Truly timeless, they just don't make them like this any more. I think sometime along all the 3d craziness, they just forgot the art of making truly epic "16-bit only" video games.



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

Offtopic: I really wish "First of the Northstar" had a physical retail released in Euroland, I truly wanted that game on my shelf. Well, I have always had an average interest in the whole "Warriors" series, but "Hyrule Warriors" was the first I spent months into it. It helps of course that there is a Wii U new retail game shortage but what keeps me coming back is new stuff from the DLC packs. Just unlocked the giant Cucco yesterday, well worth the pain to get it!



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

I don' really care about the franchise any more but it's always alarming to know my money is not good enough to warrant my Wii U from having the 3rd party support I would like it to have. Oh well, hope Nintendo releases "Wii U Music" some time down the line.



Shiryu commented on Interview: IRONFALL Invasion's Developers on B...:

It's really impressive only 3 people made such a game. I also know I am old because I remember the first game these guys made, "Jim Powers". I would really love to have more games like these on Wii U as well. All the best for future projects!



Shiryu commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

That Captain Falcon Kid story broke my heart. I'm glad it all turned out ok. Truly, the lure of easy money at the expense of passionate,more righteous and better educated people is a poison. But I guess scalping is just part of humans greedy nature... we have to take the good with the bad, but... shiryusly, stealing toys from children? Inexcusable.
