Samurai_Goroh commented on Retailers In North America Merge Wii U & 3DS L...:

Honestly, I don't think this means what you think it means, guys. Retailers do it constantly around these parts, DS mixed up with 3DS, Wii and Wii U games. Sometimes even with some Xbox games on the same shelf.
Why? Because Xbox and Nintendo sell poorly here. PlayStation has five times the shelf-space of the other two.
It's not a good thing.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Review: Sin and Punishment (Wii U eShop / N64):

@BenBertoli I might have been too harsh with you, hence I apologise.
This is the kind of game to play several times to beat the scores, it's got a pretty standard length for this genre. It's not a game for everyone, that is granted.

I bought this in 2007 for Wii VC, and it's in my top 5 N64 ever since. It pushes the envelope for the N64, it's got insane amounts of action on screen at an high pace and there's never a dull moment. I like the challenge, I like the nonsensical anime story, I like the gameplay unique twists like the sword/raygun thing and the two types of aiming, and I even like the music.

I played this with the GameCube controller on Wii, which sadly is not an option on Wii U. It is by far the best controller I could recommend for it.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Review: Sin and Punishment (Wii U eShop / N64):

This review is utter garbage. This game is a classic, even in this day and age. I still prefer it to Successor of the Skies, but you cannot go wrong with either one.

And Saki is not a woman, any reviewer who fails to do its homework with the game's lead character, loses his credibility.



Samurai_Goroh commented on VS. Excitebike is On The Way Soon:

When I read the title, I imagined a new eShop game, but it must be just a Virtual Console release.
I am quite fond of the original Excitebike, has anyone got their hands on this Famicom floppy disk sequel? It is a worthwhile game?



Samurai_Goroh commented on Mario History: Super Mario Bros. 2 - 1988:

I never knew this back on the NES. I remember when the GBA was released with this Super Mario Advance game. I though it was a brand new game and one that was trying to innovate from the Super Mario Bros. formula. I loved it.
It is a great game on his own right and Nintendo should remake it or develop a true modern sequel to it (and the exotic worlds of Super Mario Land 1& 2). Variety is good for the Mario lore, the Mushroom Kingdom and Bowser are getting way too much attention and it is getting stale.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Rumours Surface of Android Emulation On The Ni...:

Nintendo has already denied that the NX will run Android. However, Amazon might be porting its Amazon Prime apps or something to it. This would cater to the music, film stuff that Nintendo doesn't do.
Xbox One has Xbox Video, Xbox Music. Amazon could be Nintendo partner for that sort of thing.
And I'd love for some Disney/Pixar films with Nintendo's IPs.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Review: EarthBound Beginnings (Wii U eShop / NES):

I'm playing for the first time and enjoying it, but at sometimes it feels like a Earthbound downgrade.
It sure is old-school and unforgiving, grinding is essential, encounters are random and the battle system is not as sophisticated or unique as the sequel's.
But I can't stop playing this 26 years old game for some reason.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

@Aromaiden No, I also bought it amongst other things for a new Mario Galaxy or similar in scope game, which by the way we are clearly not going to get either.
There is a fine line between liking Nintendo and being a sucker for them. I'm not keen on crossing that line, so Wii U is going to be the last machine I buy from them in quite a while. I played some very good games on Wii U, but right now I don't feel that my loyalty and investment has really paid off.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Nintendo Apologises for eShop Issues Caused by...:

@Luna_110 It happened with Steam a couple days ago with the opening of the Summer Sales. I could not buy anything in the first hours of the promotion, server overload.
And everyone pretty much agrees that Steam is an amazing online service. So, is it ok for Valve to fail but not for Nintendo?



Samurai_Goroh commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

I love Ryu and Street Fighter II as much as the next guy, but Nintendo should not allow characters from games that are long gone from Nintendo hardware.
I liked Snake on Brawl, but hated the fact that Wii got precisely zero Metal Gear Solid games. I know the 3DS has Super Street Fighter 4, but if Wii U doesn't get some love from Capcom, the character should not be there.



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

@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.



Samurai_Goroh commented on Feature: Go Fast - An Ode To The Glorious Chao...:

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.
