Shiryu commented on Review: Xeodrifter (Wii U eShop):
We need this in Euroland ASAP!
Shiryu commented on High-Speed Action Platformer Spark The Electri...:
Wow, "Dynamite Headdy" vibes all over!
Shiryu commented on Splatoon's Big Update Will Also Include New Mu...:
Sounds like an awesome companion for me trampling bad guys with my new ink minigun.
Shiryu commented on Suda51 Isn't Done With No More Heroes and Trav...:
Suda51 has been one of my favorite developers all the way back when he worked on Super Famicom's "Fire Pro Wrestling" series. While "Killer 7" remains my favorite of his works, I truly loved both "No More Heroes" on the Wii, I really hope to see his work back on Nintendo platforms in the future.
Shiryu commented on Nintendo NX Might Be The First Social VR Platf...:
This would explain why Nintendo plans to keep supporting the Wii U after the NX launches. If it truly is something so "out of the box" as it is believed to be, Nintendo might keep the 3DS as their portable offering, the Wii U as their home console offering and the NX as a whole new targeted market. Time will tell I guess and for me, I rather live in the present than daydreaming of what might be in the (still) distant future.

Quality = Purchase!
Shiryu commented on Video: We Get To Grips With F-Zero Inspired Ne...:
Looks ace, the 3D should be stunning for a game like this. Hope the gameplay holds up, looking forward the NL review when it lands.
Shiryu commented on Splatoon's Big Update is Coming on 6th August:
Can't wait! That minigun will go very nicely with the Power Armour! I am so conflicted if I should take my Wii U and recording setup away on vacations... Besides this update, Legend of Kai, Devil's Third and Disney Infinty 3.0 will all come out in Europe and I won't be able to play them on release! Vexing proposition...
Shiryu commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):
I am probably gonna pick up "Legend of Kay" at retail unless NL scores it under 5.
Shiryu commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Outlines His Goals With Devil...:
What a guy... Day one purchase from me. If the online stacks up to his vision, it will steal away months from my life.
Shiryu commented on Review: KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker (Wii U eShop):
@supa I still have faith Nintendo will release a "Wii U Music", with a proper pattern editor.
@supa I think KORG considers portables the choice for software platfomr for chiptune artists. You have to admit, having a portable synth on the go is rather neat. By releasing the products on Wii U, they would be denying the most important aspect of their current offerings: instant usage anywhere.
Ah, too bad, great effort but... people who want to make some seriously insane, real NES sounding chiptunes should try to pick up Famitracker or stick to the superior DS and 3DS offering from KORG.
Shiryu commented on Video: Translation of Tomonobu Itagaki's Devi...:
That online (assuming it works properly)will eat so many hours of my life come September... so anyway, dibs on Clan Nintendo Life.
Shiryu commented on Japanese Devil's Third Site Details Online Mod...:
@TruenoGT I will have to trust Valhalla Studios. After all, Itadaki-san is a gentle and reasonable pers... oh my gods, OH MY GODS, WERE ALL DOOMED!
So far, so good (for my need to explosions and bang bangs). I hope the micro transactions of Golden eggs won't turn the online game into a "pay-to-win" online scenario, I am sure Nintendo won't let that happen, right? RIGHT!?
Shiryu commented on Super Smash Bros. Creator Pays Tribute To His ...:
Excellent points. Leave it to Sakurai to properly express the admiration I always felt for Iwata but I am still too stunned for properly word this tragedy.
Shiryu commented on Video: See Splatoon's New E-Litre 3K Scope & N...:
For the life of me I just can't find use for sniper weaponry in Turf Wars. They are certainly very useful in ranked battles (like Splash Zones) but on regular Turf Wars I always get swarmed. Watch me play this morning with the new weapons, still half asleep against level 20 Japanese player. You know how it will end...
Shiryu commented on Weirdness: Doting Dad Transforms Nursery Into ...:
That is one dedicated dad!
Shiryu commented on Weirdness: Sega's Repackaged Transformers Arca...:
There is absolutely hilarious "The House of the Dead" quality dialogue in this video at at 6:27. Quoting:“Optimus still has his weak moments. It’s our show time!”“Don’t be above yourself!”xD
Shiryu commented on E-litre 3K Scope And Neo Splash-O-Matic Headed...:
Hmm, wonder if that Scope will be a game changer for that weapon... I'm not very good using snipers, I lack the patience to effective use them preferring assault and rush tactics over point defense, but I will surely give it a try.
Shiryu commented on Latest Splatoon Splatfest Results Are In, Eati...:
@KomrathDE Yeah, this time it got so bad I even ended up fighting my team alone! I hope Nintendo listens and irons out this whole scoring deal.
A bitter sweet victory for my Team Food. Winning on popularity alone is a false victory I reckon. We lost 48%-52% in actual game win ratio and that is what really counts.
Shiryu commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:
@cfgk24 Shiryu eagerly awaits for online component reviews once the Japanese versions hits August 4th and hands on with the controls to see if they do make or break the game.
There is no two ways about this: I like it. I really do! I will most certainly buy it, it scratches an itch I hardly ever get to scratch on Wii U since "Bayonetta 2" came out. Truly hope the vast amount of player customization and weaponry keeps me hooked to the online part of the game long after I am done with the single player anti-SOD campaign.
Shiryu commented on Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures 2 is Confirme...:
Still patiently awaiting Euro release...
Shiryu commented on Video: Check Out Splatoon's New Octobrush & N-...:
I was half asleep when I made this video earlier this morning but I have to admit to be surprised by how much better the new N-Zap '89 is comparing it to the regular one thanks to it's secondary and special weaponry. The Octobrush should be a good pairing for every Octoling fan running around in Octoling clothes. Might as well just relax now until 18:00...
Shiryu commented on Parent Trap: Skylanders SuperChargers Dials Ni...:
@opeter You are lucky. If only I could turn back time and before buying the very first Skylanders, going "Wow, this is a really neat way to finally sell me some DLC!" and having bought every game of it's kind except Infinity (which will change when the Star Wars one hits...) I would be a much richer man... and had a lot less plastic to clean.
Who can afford all of these anymore!? I surely tried and failed!
Shiryu commented on Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria is the...:
Will wait for your review, but seems to hit all the right 8/16 bit JRPG spots. I like it!
Shiryu commented on Review: LEGO Jurassic World (Wii U):
English posts only please -Lz
I can't believe my local Warner distributor has put every other version of the game in the shelves except Wii U... really feel like a second rate costumer when it comes to third party stuff for Nintendo over here in Portugal. =(Anyway, I was expecting a higher score... so I am not so excited about getting it anymore.
Shiryu commented on Multiple Sources Point to Nintendo of America ...:
@EllenJMiller I just hope the online servers stay up for a long while.
Shiryu commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:
Ok, I've seen the movie and... damn, I enjoyed it a heck of a lot more than I (or any sane person) probably should. It is definitely not a game for everyone, especially the main Nintendo target audience, but I it feels right at home for me. Looks like I will go home and put some more time into "Ninja Gaiden 3".
Shiryu commented on Ninterview: Meet The Man Who Makes Hip-Hop Mus...:
That is one crazy setup.
Hmm... I will still pick it up because it's the only Mature title for the Wii U in the foreseeable future so it will be a welcome addition to my collection. Nintendo needs to work more "Bayonetta 2" style games being released on my current home console of choice. So the biggest mystery continues to be the wacky online multiplayer mode... I have to admit I'm rather looking forward to that one, sure spraying Ink is fun and all, bu t so is running around with a Minigun and a katana.
Shiryu commented on Feature: Our Tributes and Memories of Satoru I...:
I lost a friend on Saturday. I have never met him and he never met me. His name was Satoru Iwata. He was not just the CEO of Nintendo, he was a nice guy who invaded my life with Nintendo Directs, goofing off along with Miyamoto and Reggie while delivering news of future Nintendo plans. Having lived trough the Yamauchi era of Nintendo, I truly felt the contrast of the Iwata ages. And I liked it. Scratch that, I still do. I like Nintendo as it is today. I will miss Iwata, and like many other people who left this world far too soon due to disease or accident, I will keep their memories and tell their tales for the others that will come ahead.
Shiryu commented on Editorial: Satoru Iwata Embodied The Playful B...:
For the first time in my life I am playing "Ballon Fight" sad. RIP good sir, thank you for so much.
Shiryu commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:
Waking up to this news was like being hit in the stomach by a meteor. My condolences to family and friends, 55 is way too young. Very sad... =(
Shiryu commented on Splatfest Details Are Confirmed for 18th July ...:
I can't eat sushi while sleeping... so Food it is. Not really worried for backlash from the other side, they are probably taking a siesta right now.
Shiryu commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:
... I have a bad feeling about this. And it's not my imagination.
Shiryu commented on Summer Video Game StoryBundle Features Some Aw...:
Kurt Kalata, what a guy. If not for his Castlevania website decades ago, I would not have been able to complete my Japanese import copy of "Castlevania Symphony in the Night" on PSX. All HG101 books are worthy reading material.
Shiryu commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:
This is rather disturbing. In fact, I have been quite looking forward to play the game since last e3... surely Nintendo wouldn't release a broken game, right? Time will tell, but I was not expecting the guys at Unseen64 to jump on this... they are usually very reliable and I still can't shake the uneasy feeling of the game not showing up at all at e3... yep, even if I live in Euroland, I'm worried now.

Really cool game and sequel. Quite enjoyed watching Arino playing it in a episode of Game Center CX.
Shiryu commented on Shin'en Multimedia Has No Plans for FAST Racin...:
I need this badly. Ah, I was hoping they would put the original Wii "FAST League Racing" on 3DS, would look ace with the stereoscopic 3D IMO.

It's a Dark day alright... for my wallet.

I need this right now!

@DarthNocturnal I know, but I really, really wanted to play it on Wii U... =(

Those pie charts look delicious... but they are just making the wait harder to bear.
