@Quorthon I'm not slandering anyone, I stated facts. The money the pledgers gave SMS was not dropped on the street's cobblestones. It was consigned with a specific purpose, not to be forfeit.

Thank god I never gave them a penny! I would be talking to an attorney, instead of you right now if I had.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

@Quorthon So you consider a sensible and legitimate business practice to lie and deceive your consumers in exchange for their money?
Fact #1 Slightly Mad Studios made a formal promise to develop a Wii U version.
Fact # 2 Slightly Mad Studios received money from their costumers with the intent of delivering said version.
Fact # 3 Slightly Mad Studios did not deliver said version.
I'm sorry if don't bother trying to understand their angle. So you pay for something and then you may or may not have it? They don't owe you anything, though luck chap, it's plain economics. That's it?

As it stands now, Slightly Mad Studios are a bunch of liars, and if they do not refund people they'll become a bunch of thieves. It's not business, it's theft. Maybe even racketeering.

Grande artigo de retrospectiva, Shiryu. Foi ao ler os teus comentários há muitos anos no GameOver, que resolvi comprar o F-Zero GX e depois a minha vida não foi mais a mesma, claro está. Já conhecia o X, mas na GCN a coisa ficou mesmo a outro nível.

Well, Nintendo has been teasing our supersonic thrill inclinations a lot on the Wii U, haven't they? First Nintendo Land, now the superb Mario Kart 8 DLC... I like to be optimistic and believe in the grooming theory. A new F-Zero is bound to happen, whether on Wii U or the next generation, I believe. F-Zero NX makes too much sense.
Starfox was at a point almost as dead and now it's coming back on Wii U, Fire Emblem was on a downward spiral until Awakening. Nintendo just needs to reinvent the franchise to a new breed of players as well.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

I've bought the first one for €3 on an eShop sale.
While this sequel does looks much more refined and therefore I am more than willing to pay more than that for it, I find the current price tag excessive.

€12 would fare much better.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:

A Pokémon spin-off on Wii U with Amiibo support would make people go wild. I'm thinking something like Mystery Dungeon and of course they're not going to make 700 plus Pokémon figurines but they could swim in cash with just a dozen or so.

Also a Nintendo Land sequel with RPG-like progression and Amiibo storage would be great.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Super Smash Bros. Wii U Basic Bundle Heading f...:

@ikki5 Portugal went bankrupt in 2011 and I still could afford a Wii U. It's not like a bankrupcy means your bank accounts are reset to zero and the middle, upper classes vanish into thin air, you know. Countries are eternal in nature and go bankrupt all the time; you go bankrupt, you make a deal with the international creditors, you cut budgets and endure austerity for a while, and then you're back out of the woods.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Dear Nintendo, Please Let The Next Wario Land ...:

Not as good as the Wii one but quite nice. Looks like what Wario Land could be if they made it on the DS hardware.
They should release the VB Wario Land as a 3D Classic on 3DS, I want a chance to play that game at last. And make a new 1080p 2D hand-drawn Wario Land for Wii U.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Video: New Rodea the Sky Soldier Footage Shows...:

I love Sin and Punishment, so I want this to try this too. I understand why they're not releasing on Wii as originally planned, but they should make more efforts on porting this to the Wii U with the jump to hd graphics. Graphics-wise it looks like a Wii game and not even one of most impressive ones.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Review: Xavier (Wii U eShop):

It's crap like this that makes me think Nintendo has made the eShop development far too accessible. We don't want a cesspool marketplace like the smartphones have on a console.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

@NbaJunkie I have Wind Waker HD, never played it on GameCube, but there is no way I would play it without my GamePad now. Inventory, Navigation (I would seriously get lost at sea, it not for it), the wind waker songs memo, aiming with the gyro, tingle bottles and the PictoBox camera... everything is made so much better with the second screen. I don't end up using off-TV because of this. No Pro Controller for this one, thanks. For a remade game, not built from the start with the GamePad, I'd say they did a terrific job.



Samurai_Goroh commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

Wii U has the exclusives and I buy consoles for the exclusives, not the multiplats. Currently I have no interest in the other consoles, they are put bluntly overpriced PC's. I will get a much better PC shortly mainly for my work tasks but also to play a bit, and at much better value. There, I'll have my 3rd party fix soon along with the best 1st party games in the world.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

@Specter_Twilight It's also our prerogative as consumers to not buy their product when we see so little effort and value put into it. The ideal was to add value to their game so it would feel like a solid purchase for the consumers at this point in time. Devalueing the price tag would be another acceptable solution. When Ubisoft has not bothered to do neither, they end up releasing a game in November 2014 that's just not competitive enough in the current Wii U scene.
I don't think I'm alone in thinking this way. Good thing we won't have to wait too long for some nosedive price drop.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Mario Kart: Super Circuit is Racing Onto The W...:

This is on my Top 3 Mario Kart games, for sure. I got aquainted with Mario Kart on the N64, but I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this amazing 3D game running on a Game Boy. It's the game that sold me the GBA (ok, alongside F-Zero and Metroid Fusion!). And Cheese Land is amazing, I would love a Mario Kart 8 remake of it.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Genyo Takeda Discusses Nintendo's Hardware Future:

I'm keen on the Fusion hybrid idea. I think Nintendo will switch to ARM 64 on their next hardware and try to court the smart devices developers who are familiar with that architecture. And there's plenty of bang on ARM these days to achieve great HD gaming performance as well as portable experiences.
And I absolutely agree that they should have a €350 or so ceiling on their hardware. A over-the-top x86-64 machine for €500 wouldn't be right for Nintendo's usual consumers.



Samurai_Goroh commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

Regarding Virtual Console, the DS must be their top priority. I mean we have Dr.Kawashima as a free DS sample for months already, when do they plan to sell the actual games?
Other than that, Splatoon would make me very happy to hear about, particularly as I expect a May 2015 release for it.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Luigi's Mansion Arcade May Potentially Be a Th...:

@unrandomsam If and that's only if this ends up getting a console port. I sure would like it to, because developing a brand new Luigi's Mansion just for the japanese arcade scene is a waste and believe it or not, the Wii U could use more exclusive games.

This is Luigi's Mansion a spin-off of the Super Mario series we are talking about, not some niche Japanese game. Everyone around the globe should have the chance to play it. So it really should not stay a Japan arcade only affair.
