I am the Great Mighty Poo.

Collector and fan of (almost) all things Nintendo, I have a wider gaming interest. I like more obscure games, both in rarity and vibe-wise.

Shambo commented on Miley Cyrus Confuses Fans by Owning a Wii U:

By the logic displayed in some of the comments here, I should stop breathing, because many people who's media image I do not approve of, also breath.

And yes, I am aware that many of those commenters weren't serious.

Shambo commented on Watch Dogs Companion App Updated For Compatibi...:

@ULTRA-64 Have they patched SC Blacklist's multiplayer yet?

Well, they made me wait way too long, too many games coming out now, they WILL say it's Nintendo gamers their fault it won't sell, whatever happens, and we'll never see a sequel to Red Steel 2 or ZombiU anyway... So, I'll wait untill they stop shamelessly asking full retail price. Cancelled my pre-order after that period of uncertainty if it would be canned or not. I was going to get the version with the statue an all that, but it seemed they already canned that version for Wii U. What a mess, can't wait to get blamed for their bad sales, as a Nintendo fan.

Shambo commented on Nintendo UK Executive Says Wii U Has Had "Quit...:

Together with PS Vita the most underrated system, only Wii U isn't abandoned, far from it. Vita in Europe is mostly dead. Also, 3ds was 'dead on arrival' too, by popular opinion. Never regretted getting 3ds and Wii U at their respective launch.

Shambo commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

Read some other reviews as well, and even IGN and Gamespot praise to game endlessly!

IGN has NO negative points, and Gamespot has only one:

"The sad realisation that future action games may never top this".

I knew I needed this, I pre-ordered the first print edition, played the demo, and decided that when a game this good fails to get acceptable sales at least, I quit gaming.

Shambo commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (Europe):

Well, already bought the Hyrule Warriors dlc bundle. I have Lone Survivor on PS VITA, but I'm really losing interest in the system... So I might get the game at a discount later on Wii U, and maybe sell my VITA, unless I get some more good news about Grim Fandango coming to it in a remastered version...

Shambo commented on Mega Man Felyne Armour Makes Monster Hunter 4 ...:

So, another game combining Link, Mario & Luigi, Samus, AND Mega Man?
Awesome. I just don't get how Capcom and Nintendo seem to work together so well, yet Capcom keeps stabbing their fans in the back, with bad games often, bad decisions, multi-platforms that work on my grandma's toaster but 'could't be ported to Nintendo systems',...
Anyway, I'll gladly get this game, but if Capcom doesn't return to what they used to be, they're dead to me after this.

Shambo commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

Good bye, Capcom. Say hello to EA and Ubisoft, once everyone finally gets sick of their same-olds. They all have franchises I'd love to see returning (Timesplitters, Red Steel, ZombiU, BG&E, Mega Man,...) but I cannot support these arrogant corporate a-holes any longer. After MH4U that is. I'll even NOT get AA trilogy. Got the DS games, and if they're too cheap to release it physical, don't bother at all. Nintendo better get ready to purchase some IP's.

Imagine having to hunt Ridley...

Well, anyway, I just realized I will now have to choose between Link and Samus. I just died a little inside. But given that I played as Link in a real spin-off recently -and going- and the next Zelda will certainly be available before the next Metroid, I believe my choice is made.

Shambo commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:

Ubisoft: two questions...

-since when do you avoid cheating fans?
-isn't lying about your motivation also cheating fans?

A bonus question:

-When will you stop cheating BG&E fans, and bring the second game? Or a second Zombi U? What about Valiant Hearts? Red Steel 3? If any or all come to Wii U, I might become a fan again.

Shambo commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

This is perhaps my most anticipated game in years, been waiting for it since it's first announcement, and I'm really happy Nintendo gave them the chance to make it, and redo the first game as well, as an added bonus. Add that gorgeous first print edition, and the announcement of Devil's Third being picked up by Nintendo as a next project, and I'm only really sad they seem to plan on not releasing yet another Project Zero/Fatal Frame outside of Japan, as far as third party for Nintendo goes.

I'd even go as far as to say I prefer the way Nintendo works with third parties nowadays. Close collaboration, original products, Nintendo content, and a completely different, more varied lineup. If they cooperate, and don't stab N in the back.

So we finally get folders and everyone just starts to demand other stuff... Now that the folders are here, let them focus on the games again, for a while.

Also, is it just me, or do backgrounf applications like the web browser start WAY quicker now?

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

This is just as silly as it gets... Really? One of my favourite series, Which seems to be nearly owned by Nintendo, for the second time not released in the west? Well, I just bought the fourth installment, and I'm going to use the fan translation. But if Nintendo doesn't release this one here in Europe, I'll be deeply dissappointed.

Good horror games in the west are EXTREMELY rare these days, especially physical releases. So much so that I even directly ordered another Japanese horror game for the Wii when purchasing Project Zero/Fatal Frame 4.

Shambo commented on Hyrule Warriors Horses Around with Epona in Ma...:

@MadAdam81 Dark Link looks exactly like the Dark Links you meet later in the game, he's pretty awesome, I've played as him quite a lot already. It was rather funny to see the cutscene in which 'they' extract Dark Link from Link's shadow, since I was playing as Dark Link already.

So Epona will be a weapon for Link... Dark Link holds black versions of the weapons... Will Epona be black as well? :o That'd be AMAZING!

They should bring Gamer as a separate downloadable title to the eshop. I have G&W on disc, but only for Gamer and the pictionary-style multiplayer game if I recall correctly - it's been quite a while. As separate downloads for, say, €5 & €3 respectively, these would be much easier to recommend.

Shambo commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

@ToxieDogg Bayonetta 2 first print edition is preordered, had the game itself preordered since it was first announced, and upgraded with every new announcement made ;) can't wait for it! Supported Platinum since way before they became Platinum, and only Anarchy Reigns was somewhat disappointing, I'd rather have seen a Madworld sequel.

Shambo commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

@Beetlejuice It was 'non-essential' because many ignored it. But looking back, the expansion pack was essential to some of the best games, not just N64 games back in the day, but THE best games EVER. Gamecube/GBA connectivity is still part of some of the most fun expreriences, like Zelda multiplayer, my favourite Final Fantasy, and most of all PacMan VS.

The DSi also brought along features and games earlier DS models couldn't play. Of course this is just a model between old and truely new, but saying it's not worth it before having seen what it brings? 'Motion Plus' could be considered not worth it too, but then Red Steel 2 and Skyward Sword came along.

Shambo commented on Capcom Shows Off Comparison Screens For Phoeni...:

I just don't like how the bigger screens gives a more narrow view on a zoomed-in background, instead of a wider view. That aside, still excited. Played and still own the originals, but having them on my system whenever, might be nice, for the right price.

Shambo commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

@Sadodi I was writing a reaction, but @ToxieDogg said everything I was typing down already.

PS: Ubisoft, you made such great games for the Wii U, and I supported them mostly, still own and love Zombi U, Rayman Legends, Splinter Cell Blacklist (but why on earth did you NOT fix the online?), and Assassin's Creed 4. I would have loved Rayman to be playable in Smash Bros, but a trophee is nice too, at least he got a mention, which he more than deserves. But after all the big company BS business you pulled already, I'll wait for Watch Dogs to go dirt cheap, I'm sorry.
BG&E 2, Redsteel 3, a second Zombi U game, Valiant Hearts, and Rainbow Six Siege, all for Wii U, that's what I'd want from them. Physically of course, and not stripped of features, special editions, months late lazy ports without additional content when other versions already have it available,... So don't go blaming the customers. It's not me who failed you, it really is the other way around.

Shambo commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

@Mega719 Wait until a new Metroid is finally unveiled. Or its secret function of streaming both Wii U gamepad and TV screen images, so you can play any game off-tv. Just guessing, but it's probably going to be worth it no matter what. Nintendo knows what they're doing.

Should this happen, I look forward to playing ZombiU this way!

Shambo commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

One of the best games of last gen, even better with added Nintendo content, dirt cheap physical release in an epic limited collector's box which I'll get, with an exclusive sequel no one dared to hope for... Well, that's a 10/10 to me.

Seeing as this is an eshop version review, I can forgive the 8/10 ;) 80% has never been bad in any regard anyways.

Still, hoping they eventually make it to the Wii U version, they were my favourites. Also, sad that Doshin is once again not present. He could've been a very interesting character (the whole growing/throwing/turning evil thing especially).

Shambo commented on This Fan-Made NES 3DS XL Offers a Cool Alterna...:

Nintendo probably considered this design too, and when seeing them together it confirms what I never doubted: Nintendo made the right choice out of the two. Of course, if Famicom design was an option, like that lovely GB Micro of gamepad faceplate, it would still win any day. But Famicom is less western, obviously, so far fewer people here have memories of that.

I remember playing videogames in the dark, untill this man said something like "let there be light". And there was light. Or am I mixing up stories here? My memory is rather vague at times.

Anyway, I like it that they kept it womething truely separate, Zelda fans like me will go wherever Link goes, or Ganondorf takes princess Zelda, anyway. Or where moons treathen to fall, moblins roam freely, things are devided in three and spread across lands, or eight items are hidden in dungeons. It doesn't need to be ALL of the above.

Magokarp SHOULD be in there. And the game SHOULD be on Wii U! Wii U would ship by the tens -if not hundreds- of thousands... 2 vs 2 Magikarp battles, Magikarp CAN learn tackle, so there's that.

Also, Activision and Nintendo should really get together to make Skylanders compatible with at least the Pokémon Amiibo's.

@Frapp I want a see-through one for custom prints, but official ones from all that you said would be more than welcome too! Especially, indeed, a Famicom one. That GBM is the most gorgeous console ever! Got a faceplate for my Wii U gamepad to match.

Love the mushrooms (especially 1-UP) and Animal Crossing ones.

Looking at my 3DS games to see possibly-likely designs... And Etrian Odyssey Untold pops out, Layton vs Wright, Mario & Luigi Dream Team, Bravely Default,... and one like my 3DS XL faceplate of pixelated Mega Man would be nice too.

WOAH love how this looks! Hope it plays as well! Perhaps the low visibility could be a neat gameplay factor. Say, when in the dark, you get to button bash more, in the light it's more tactical... Would be awesome!

The artwork is like Gunman Clive meats Red Dead Redemption or something, by the way, which makes for some very high expectations...
