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 Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

@gage_wolf If you don't play too much of too many Warriors games, and are a fan of Legend of Zelda, there's a lot of joy to be had here.
I for one was hoping to get a game one day starring Sheik, and two days later this got announced and I knew Sheik had to be a playable character. But it's much more than that.

Shambo commented on Peculiar Outfits and Details Revealed for Twil...:

The whole game is pleasantly bizarre, so this content really fits right in!

But PLEASE, make a weapon for link with mole mits, a gust jar, and Ezlo as an agressive cap! He hould dodge by shrinking, or finish an enemy by shrinking him and stepping on it, Duke Nukem style...

And a Toon Link and Toon Ganondorf skin, a Wind Waker as weapon, or the hammer. It might be a weird fit, but they come from different era's anyway. And 8bit weapons are awesome too, so why not? Or even some side characters or bad guys from the DS games!

Sadly, no pack is themed Minish or Wind Waker. Still, Tingle...

Shambo commented on Nintendo Secures Plenty of Nominations in The ...:

It's been an overall pretty sad year, and Nintendo platforms still did quite well, with some truely amazing titles that could easily dominate their respective genres for several years to come, if not a generation.

So they should at the very least get a few rewards.

I was going to honour Shovel Knight's nomination by writing in 'butt-mode', but that would've been pretty confusing to get a message across.

Both GBA Goden Sun games should indeed be seen as one. I played this so much in the day, I had all djinns, all summons, all characters lv 99, all the best gear, including cursed with curse nullifying rings I believe, and doubles of the most rare enemy drops,... Luckily both my sister and me had a GBA, and we had a link cable, so no need for passwords that could fill a small book.

Shambo commented on Cubic Ninja Sales Spike Following Announcement...:

Still have it, got it pretty early, and had some enjoyment with it.

I only recently soft-modded my Wii, mostly to emulate fan-translation-patched roms like Sweet Home (Famicom), Mother 3 (which I own on GBA originally, but it's Japanese obviously),... and to play imported games from non-PAL regions, that never got released here, like Kirby's Dream Collection, Excitebots, Zero 4 with the fan-translation,...

May do the same with one of my 3DSes in time.

Shambo commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

While I dislike all this competitive marketing stuff, this one in particular made my jaw drop.

Sony DIDN'T forget they made a handheld? I have a Vita, and a few games for it, but there's an obvious lack of quality software, and even of FIRST party support... All I'm looking forward to now, is Grim Fandango being remade.

And them talking about Nintendo being no longer innovative, and THEY filling the void, with an outdated gaming PC with a controller... Sorry, no. Just no. Nintendo may not have fully used the Gamepad that much, but they at least provided a platform that allows innovation. And that plays previous gen games as well, supports the controllers too, and is inviting for local multiplayer. You know, REAL 'social' gaming.

Shambo commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Unboxes Super Smash Bro...:

Well, I have kept some Gamecube controllers... 19 of them, and the Smash one coming soon.

Why 19? 18 wired ones (16 for Double Dash LAN, one still in the Wind Waker Gamecube bundle which remains boxed in my Zelda collection, and one from the Tales of Symphonia Gamecube), and my WaveBird for strictly personal use.

Shambo commented on Feature: Our Predictions For The Animal Crossi...:

I need that Baby Park! 8 laps of battle royal racing... And special items, I really start missing them. Still, a fantastic game with great DLC so far, but Double Dash has a special place in my memory, and a large space in my games collection as I nearly finished my 16 player LAN setup :D

Shambo commented on Exclusive New Nintendo 3DS Features Teased For...:

Brainstorming here, but of course the extra buttons will be used (quick equip, camera controls, maybe a screenshot function?), the extra horse power may deliver a better framerate, and all-around new features could include a Hero-mode, photo-masks, gyro aiming as in OoT3D... Amiibo's may, as stated before, give special masks as well.

More Wario Ware characters! And the drilldozer from, well, Drilldozer. Also, Django from Boktai (has a bike too, in Boktai 3), Mega Man since he became a Smash bro as well, and by all means: more Monster Hunter felynes wherever they may fit, and Tingle. Yes, Tingle.

Oh, and Chase McCain (Lego City) and Maxwell (Scribblenauts). Could go on for quite a while actually.

Shambo commented on Nintendo Reveals 11 amiibo Super Smash Bros. F...:

I think it's great they added the third party guest characters too, and not only because I'd like to have them, but as a sort of 'contract' with those parties.

Sonic is basically a Nintendo-platform franchise as far as recent enjoyable games go (except for Generations, of course).
When has Capcom last used Mega Man for something Mega Man worthy?
Now, where's Pac Man?
I still find it to be sad that Bomberman, Astro Boy, and Rayman did not join the all-time mascot mash-up brawl. And Doshin as a first-party newcomer!

Shambo commented on Talking Point: The Majora's Mask 3D Reveal Sho...:

As soon as those drums started I knew I recognized them. But I'd almost given up hope, I was next to certain that if they'd port it, they'd announce it at the end of E3, third day, something with the moon crashing.

Then the environments. Couldn't directly place it, until the torches and the rotating thing were shown. And then, the bells sounded, and I nearly jumped up. Not as crazy as with the Zelda U trailer, that one blew me away completely, but still.

But then, limited edition announced? So I went and pre-pre-ordered it next morning.

Shambo commented on Gallery: Gorge Yourself on These Assets For Th...:

I'm very much hyped for the return of horror-Zelda. Really, I actually went to my local store where I used to work, to, well, pre-preorder the limited edition. Zelda is my favourite franchise ever, and I've been collecting it for ages now. Also, I love this game especially for being this special.

Now, some HD, slow-paced, survival horror-Metroid please!

Shambo commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@Punished_Boss_84 I am a fan of variety, that's why I did NOT choose psONE.

I have other consoles and games a plenty, but I get the most enjoyment and varied content that I personally like on my Nintendo systems mostly.

'Realistic' or online shooters rarely interest me (only Rainbow Six, mostly... Siege looks great), and racing or sport sims that take themselves too serious are not my favourites either. For local 2d fighting games, I have plenty of retro options. I get consoles for over the top action games, SURVIVAL horror, Zelda (yep, huuuuge fan), and fun ptatformers/adventures/local multiplayer/...

Nintendo may be 'for kids' by popular opinion, but I'm glad I'm a grown-up that sees gaming as a fun time-waster and nice collection hobby then, not a wannabe-grown-up kid scolding others, their respective mothers, and questioning their sexual orientation over the internet because they outsmarted me in-game.

And I know Reggie probably curses the fact they miss out on so many modern popular third party franchises, but I honestly get my Nintendo's first for the reason he claims to support: a differentiated platform with my favourite franchises that rarely disappoint, and just enough games to get the good ones and play them.

At a later point I might get a secondary system, once I've seen which one gets the better games in my opinion, but so far it's neither.

Shambo commented on Expect To See More Spin-Off Titles Like Hyrule...:

Depends of course, I love Hyrule Warriors, and there's been other spin-offs in the past that I truely like, but it's a case by case scenario.

SMT X FE is one I'm looking forward for to learn more about, and a Metroid-themed survival horror game with ZombiU's tense atmosphere would also be lovely.

Shambo commented on Moon Chronicles Developer Seeking Interest for...:

So... A port of a port?

How about first get it on 3DS in Europe? :( I liked the original, but I'd very much like to FINALLY be able to play an FPS in 3D, with stylus controls (though I'd rather see them create a Dementium game, since they own the rights again if I'm not mistaken, "3Dementium" would sound fine, or go for D3MENTIUM, or how about simply porting the HD version of 2 to Wii U when we're porting ports, since Europe didn't even get that game on DS, had to import it).

Don't get me wrong, I love most of their work so far!

Shambo commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

Yeah, please remove that lock! If I want Atlus games physically, I shouldn't have to skip them entirely because I'm simply not going to buy a different region console. DS and GB family never gave me that issue, and some of my favourite games on those systems are imported because they were never released in Europe (Kirby's Tilt 'n' Tumble, Wario Ware Twisted, Drill Dozer, Boktai 3, Mother 3, Dementium 2, Tokyo Beat Down,..).

And I have several Gamecubes, one chipped and a Free Loader for the others, and my Wii had to be soft-modded in order to play Zero 4's fan translation (and it seconds as an emulation device for other fan translated Japanese games I own originally but don't understand. Mother 3 for example).

Please don't keep the next Project Zero/Fatal Frame Japan-exclusive too :(

Shambo commented on Former President Of Silicon Knights Announces ...:

Benefit of doubt... ED still is one of my favourite games ever, and a Wii U sequel (or remake/3ds port) would be welcome. But the way they seemingly want to blow it up, makes me afraid they'll simply... Well, blow it up.

No game was funkier than de Blob, ever. A Wii U sequel would be very welcome!
Makes me want to see something more about Splatoon.
Paint should be used in games more often, NFS Nitro still is my favourite NFS because of paint.

That's really great! If Binding of Isaac comes to Wii U, I'll finally get to play it. I have other systems that can play it already, but I rarely play games on them anymore. Wii U would be perfect!

Also, these policies seem so... Polite! :p I nearly expected apologies for any possible inconvenience.

Shambo commented on Review: Disney Infinity 2.0 (Wii U):

I must say, I love the Venom figure! Not getting the game though... Going to stop getting Skylanders too, Amiibo's... Well, guess that's going to be too hard to resist, but there'll be way fewer, with hopefully way more use to them! And of course the timeless charm of being Nintendo mascot figurines.

Shambo commented on Slender: The Arrival Is Stalking Its Way To Th...:

I'll get it, I love horror games. Recently (finally) got a copy of Zero 4, which I now play with the fan translation on my Wii, and Ikenie No Yoru, which is a fun distraction. I'd like to play Slender, but it not being on Wii U, and the original being way overhyped (and, while I applaud the original developer, a tad boring in my opinion) kept me from doing so untill now. Glad I didn't get it anywhere else already!
Please support pointer controls!
P.s.: here's hoping the (Project) Zero / Fatal Frame for Wii U gets a European release still...

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.
