I am the Great Mighty Poo.

Male, 27, Belgium

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. Other things I collect are movies and figures/statues of game-, comic- and movie characters.

Shambo commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

When lying down I happen to slide my volume all the way up all of a sudden, by accident. This will probably no longer happen. The extra buttons without that bulky attachment are VERY welcome, even if only a few games use them (and I actually like RE better with one slide pad).

Xenoblade is a must for me, still have it on the Wii but I'd LOVE to play this in 3D! It nearly burns the Wii down, so extra hardware power being required is no surprise, and certainly no dealbreaker.

One thing though: I need to know if the Smash Bros 3DS will also be available in the New model in Europe. And I'll have to see the systems (normal, XL) side by side to decide which one to go with. I love the normal 3DS just because it's smaller, but the XL because it's bigger (I know... So logical, and yet...)

Shambo commented on Ubisoft's Latest UK Release Schedule Still Sho...:

Maybe I'll change my pre-order into a 'to be decided' as well... Really, how big companies handle their releases these past few years, had me loving the indie scene even more. Only thing: I love my games on a disc, in a box (with a friggin' manual... :( ).

Shambo commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

I'm starting to believe there's two companies called Capcom, since I see that name in both the better and the worse news, about that company make either the best or worst decisions. With amazingly good and terribly bad games.

Shambo commented on Nintendo of America Unleashes Wii U Game Sizzl...:

So, Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors this year? Zelda and X in 2015? MH4U on 3DS? Amiibo? New 3DS? Splatoon?... (a ton of extra greatness)? And a lot of announcements that are Japan only so far but will hopefully get to the rest of the world...

Nintendo blitzkrieg, the same thing that made 3DS from the very much underappreciated underdog to the one system to rule them all.

Shambo commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Just too late to be thestandard for when the Smash Bros design is released... 2 more 3ds's... IF they don't bring that Monster Hunter design to Europe as well... Haven't even had this many Gamecubes, and I have an entire 16 player Double Dash set-up and a boxed one safely put away...

Shambo commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

Zombi U was a fantastic game, and I still don't get how so many reviewers didn't get it. Did it have some flaws? Sure. But did it deliver an adrenaline rush now and then, tense atmosphere,...? Hell yeah.
Rayman Legends was best on the Wii U as well, and one of my all-time favourite 2D platformers.
Just Dance is like... Just that, dance. Fun in groups, but a system seller? When available anywhere? Let Smash Bros sell the systems, Ubisoft, and focus on a second Zombi U, or a third Red Steel...

Shambo commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

@Zyrac All those points apply to me, by choice, and I still want to add a fourth one: you can't play Smash Bros on your "smart" phone. But you CAN now play the soundtrack while earning play coins, Streetpassing, in between separate bus or train rides for example, anywhere, without having to pay a small fortune for 'free' 'unlimited' data on soon-to-be-outdated devices that break at the slightest touch with short battery life to begin with, better used for other things than youtube. It's nothing but win for 3DS.

Hive Jump looks like my kind of game! Some of the others also have my attention. But Hive Jump... It's like original Metroid and Prime Hunters combined. With Scurge Hive, twin-sticks, and co-op. Yup, I need that to happen!

Shambo commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Nearly impossible to vote, but I chose 360° 3D Galaxy 2 in the end. But I like nearly every step the series took, be it forward, backward, or side-to-side 2D and 3D series.

Still hoping for another sunshine, galaxy, and also the continuation of more "story-driven" "spin-offs", and Luigi's own ghostly series.

And looking forward to Toad's own game, and Mario Maker.

Well, "another Mario game", as they said making fun of themselves and their "haters" alike, has rarely been a bad thing (just not that much into the sports and party games, except for hoops and strikers).

Shambo commented on Alone In The Dark is Set for Yet Another Comeback:

My first experience with the series was actually the GBC version of the new nightmare, and I still find that to be an impressive outing. Later I played it on PS2, and was somewhat disappointed, only to find out that I enjoyed it quite a lot when I later played it on PS1. The reboot, on the other hand... I did finish it on Wii, somehow. But only a few parts were enjoyable. And first-person aiming was hilarious when twisting the remote sideways, since aiming side to side still made the gun go left to right... But from its 'own standpoint'.

Shambo commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Well, Capcom clearly has trouble with RE directing. Turning RE into an action series, for example, and not bringing REmake to Nintendo systems (while I'm certain it would work wonderful, especially on 3DS, and REmake was after all on Nintendo systems to begin with).

But making a 'Revelations 2', and not bringing it at least to 3DS, would be a downright disaster. I have both the 3DS and the Wii U version of Revelations, and sunk -no pun intended- about 200 hours in both games combined, the majority spent on the handheld original.

Shambo commented on These Felyne-Themed 3DS XL Accessories are Lud...:

I still laugh every time I see those felynes and piggies. The very idea they're from that specific game... Hardcore monster slaying (or being tossed about and rear-kicked into yesteryear) and some of gaming's cutest creaturs...

@Jenraux I guess it's something like 'the grass is always greener on the other side', if that saying can be translated this literally...

I don't know... I'm a Zelda collector, but I'm not too charmed by it. Probably have plenty of unused codes here, but what if they decide to get another more impressive piece in there out of the blue, like the Luigi's Mansion 2 diorama?

Shambo commented on Beautiful Limited Edition Super Smash Bros. 3D...:

I'll get it, that's for sure, and that way, not counting the standard editions of both models (which I sold) I will once again have 5 3DEES...

But I definitely DON'T like that "pre-installed" part. I'll get the game physical, and can't sell "pre-installed"... :(

Shambo commented on Nintendo Unleashes An Awesome Trailer Showing ...:

Fatal Frame, Devil's Third, even older titles like Pikmin 3, MH3U, ZombiU, Lego City, W101,... It's a step in the right direction, But if NOW is the time, show people what is already exclusively available! By the way, to anyone who doesn't yet own a Wii U, now IS the time indeed. It's my favourite home console, and the library of games is good already and growing into something amazing. Should you feel a lack of games, consider that many people haven't yet scratched the surface of what great gems lie hidden in the pile of shovelware for Wii!

Shambo commented on Video: Citizens of Earth Recruitment is All Ab...:

@Wouwter The battle scenes really remind me of Earthbound, and the top-down overworld with your party walking behind you. If they did that on purpose -which I hardly doubt they did- they may very well have taken other clues from that wonderful title. And Atlus often means 'good' in my book, so I have high hopes for this game.

Shambo commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (Europe):

To anyone who didn't play ZombiU or Rayman Legends yet, DO IT! Both games are great for Wii U, and they both prove a lot of fun when playing local multiplayer, with both players doing different stuff. Single player for both is full of great moments that will last in your gamer's memory forever. And they're both pretty friggin' "hardcore" when played to the fullest.

Is it just me, or does that steering wheel make you want to use your gamepad even more? I'm not that much into realystic racers, but I will get this one, and if there's a table-mounted device to make the gamepad feel more like a steering wheel, I'll even get that!

Shambo commented on Capcom Releases Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney -...:

UNACCEPTABLE! Oops, wrong game. Well, no retail version in Europe means I won't get it, unloess it gets discounted to, like, €10 max.

If Capcom pulls cheap BS, they shouldn't be surprised if gamers want it cheap.

By the way, Capcom, since you're doing a remaster of REmake (even as a Wii U fan I don't really care you skip Wii U), make a RETAIL 3DS version of it as well. I promise you, it'll be the best version of the game, EVER. "Interactive diorama" portable REmake. Who wouldn't want THAT?

Shambo commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

@Sir_Deadly There's two separate Archives games, one is the REmake, one is Zero. They're the full Gamecube games, simply ported to the Wii (so if you have them on Gamecube, you have a memory card, and a controller for Gamecube, there's very little reason to get the ports).

Shambo commented on This Game Boy Stage in Super Smash Bros. for N...:

@jj87 Ironically, Nintendo has least of all companies abandoned the essence of classic video gaming. Their games didn't become movies with button prompts, and remained all about sharing a screen and having a good time. That's what kept me a fan of them, the core that remained. The true 'hardcore' gaming. They only changed the ways you interact with your games, something other companies played way safer, but eventually copied most of the time, as a safer, secondary option.

For once, I hope the mic will be used. Imagine having a way to disturb your opponents 'cartridge slot' by a 'some virtual dust', and have them blow a cartridge using the mic, slide it back in by sliding the touch screen. Won't happen I guess, but IMAGINE!

I do expect the power light to fade when the battery is low though!

Shambo commented on Wii U Owners Finally Get The Nuketown 2025 Map...:

Well, I might try it, still have the game, but I can't help but wonder... At this point, why still bother releasing it? Do they want to see how many people could be interested in the next COD for Wii U? Not really hoping for it, or hyped for the game whatsoever, just wondering.
