Shambo commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Multiplayer Gaming on...:

Well, MH4, Splatoon, and Devil's Third. Can't really pick one over another.
MH3 is my most played game ever, on Wii, Wii U, en 3ds, quadrupling my playtime on the second most played: Pokemon Blue.
Devil's Third looks exactly my kind of game, with the absurdity and such.
Splatoon looks the most pure fun.

@StarDust4Ever I've encountered some issues when wearing my glasses, but I luckily don't need to wear them up close. Darkness was no issue, however if I was hanging whit my head on a pillow, sideways, it appeared to have difficulty recognizing my head.
But in complete darkness (except for the light of the screen, which conveniently adjusts brightness to not blind you) I had no issues besides that. Resident Evil Revelations with gyro controls in the darkness, max 3D settings, all the way!

Shambo commented on Best Buy Cancellations of Majora's Mask 3D New...:

They really should stop the reseller-market in one way or another. They may very much crash the industry, by making people WAY too much, and therefore taking their ability to buy another game as well, for example.
And why? Greed...
It is a sad thing to see also singular orders were cancelled. I hope Europe won't follow, but I'm under the impression there's less resellers here. Sadly, not none. FAR from none...

@SwaveSays Indeed, probably... I still say that, when used correctly at any level, they're a real enhancement to gameplay. Take Skyward Sword/Red Steel 2 for example, or even multiplatform games like Blazing Angels and The Godfather, I loved those on Wii.
Ah well, to each his own, I guess can be applied here.

@SwaveSays I still don't get why not more games have implemented this... well, sort of "triple analog" control scheme. It's sad RE Revelations ALMOST does it. But as soon as you aim your weapon, second analog aiming is REPLACED, not ENHANCED with gyro...

I have all the ones I want on Wii disc, but I'd like to see Fragile Dreams, A Shadow's Tale/Lost in Shadows, Madworld, Deadly Creatures, Onechanbara... And in the meantime @Varoennauraa has posted almost any other game I would have listed without checking my library :p

Shambo commented on Resident Evil 4 Was Almost A Very Different Ex...:

@Yosher Especially that it skips 3ds, with the n3ds, I'm replaying Revelations, with gyro aiming and 3d at maximum. Love the Wii U version too.

And the hd remaster of the remake of the original RE, also skipping Nintendo :( not that I haven't played it like 10 times through, but I'd have liked seeing it in 3d, portable...

As I would have liked to at least get this build somewhere on a bonus disc... When I saw this years ago, I really wanted to try it. The final version (especially the Wii edition) turned out one of my favourite games ever, but still... Curiosity...

Shambo commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

@WhiteTrashGuy I played quite a bit on my Ambassador's Edition n3ds so far, and I must say, it's REALLY nice to return to the smaller screen.

The auto brightness and super stable 3d usually work amazing, unless I wear my glasses or have a light source behind me and move quite a bit. It actually has IR 'night vision' if I'm not mistaken, so it can still recognize your face in complete darkness.

I can feel my old habits wanting me to get both. But I'm going to pass. Wario and Waluigi would be harder, but by the time they'll finally release such awesomeness -should they ever- I'll be ready to say 'enough is enough'.

@Pj1 There is one in NA, I hope Europe gets it as well (I have all the others so far).

Already pre-ordered the n3DS XL bundle, the NA limited edition of the game, and the EU limited edition... It's one of my favourite games ever, so I couldn't miss either version in my Zelda collection...

Shambo commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Wii had an amazing library. If they dig deep enough, and third parties add only their very best games for the right price, this is a goldmine.

I already have over a hundred original Wii games, all the very best that interest me. But 10 for Metroid Prime 'Thrill-G' (gotta love how he pronounced that) is a STEAL for anyone who for some reason missed out on this wonderful collection of awesomeness.

Edit: one thing was painfully absent though: Project Zero. Maybe this is a great chance to release the fan-translation of 4 outside of Japan, followed by the new Wii U game, in the future? I imported and patched, but more people should be able to play 4, and ALL should be able to play 5!

What a Direct it was! I've been playing Revelations Raid Mode a lot since I received my n3ds, the super-stable 3d works great, making the gyro-aiming a fun, immersive addition now. Maybe they can implement it as well?

Project Zero U for Europe, Fatal Frame U for you Americans!

I have the n3ds ambassador edition already, but Xenoblade for it should get a worldwide release date too! It's already translated and crammed on a tiny card, so how hard can localizing be?

Shambo commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

Received my n3ds today, and I'm very impressed by the 'super stable 3d' (played both resident evil revelations in highest 3d settings with gyro aiming, and starfox without any problem with fuzzy or double images), and the ability to watch 3d videos on youtube in the web browser.

I'm still waiting patiently by the door for mine to arrive, I got the mail the first time around, but didn't respond directly since I don't check my mail every five steps.

Does anyone know, is there a way to track the delivery? I received an e-mail to confirm my order, but that's it so far. (I live in Belgium)

Shambo commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:

Just this afternoon, I felt the urge to replay it. I can choose between the original game, on my favourite Famicom edition Gameboy Micro, the amazing LoZ GBA SP, Gameboy player, or 3ds thanks to the Ambassador Program, to name my favourite ways to play GBA that don't include transferring all data to a prettier 3ds, or paying for what I originally own.

When I saw this news, I thought WHY Nintendo, WHY do you not love me back? Then I realized I dind't check my e-mails yet.

There it was!

A glorious love letter from Nintendo.

Expensive long-distance relation, this one. But I'm not complaining.

Shambo commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

While quite a few of these games are pretty high on my 'wishlist', Dementium has been a very special series to me. Living in Europe, getting the first game was no easy task, and the second one had to be imported.

But a portable 3d first person horror game is not that common, and with stronger hardware the lighting effects could be upgraded, which would greatly improve the overall atmosphere. Also, this gives me a little bit of hope that a 3Dementium could be on the horizon. Or Cult County.

But before I get my hopes too high, I still need to see Moon Chronicles make it to Europe...

Shambo commented on Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become...:

A well deserved victory. Nintendo simply is hard- and software developer of the past couple of decades to me. Sure, they had some low points here and there, but they have guts and vision, fun games that overflow with love and polish, original ideas, and they helped several third party studio's deliver some of their finest work ever.

Now, publish Project Zero on Wii U outside of Japan, and you're my publisher of the past few decades as well!

Shambo commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

I can't pick one. Really, this is a very strong lineup, and since I have a huge backlog, and this lineup ahead, I won't be 'needing' a secondary current gen home console any time soon.

@aaronsullivan You and me both. But I want Shovel Knight as a retail release equally bad! Perhaps a Not-TOO-Limited Bundle of Bu - I mean, Both?

If anyone at Nintendo happens to be reading this: take credit for it all you want, just make it happen! And Project Zero 5 for Europe / Fatal Frame 5 for NA.

Shambo commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (...:

Well, like many others I'm not pleased by this being download-only... Then again, I have the originals, and still got this. They're great games, and you never know when you'll want to play them. So having them on the SD card is quite convenient.

Completely unrelated to this trilogy, but since we're talking awesome puzzle-adventure games on Nintendo handhelds, isn't there a third Touch Detective out in Japan? Any word on a translation?

Shambo commented on Eternal Darkness Trademark Renewal Increases H...:

@Donutman I bought the ZombiU pack on launch day, and a few issues aside, it's one of the greatest survival horror games ever, imo. Because it's just that: survival, and horror. Left 4 dead is a fun arcadey game, but I much more enjoyed the slow pacing and the whole nerve-racking 'one bite and it was all for nothing' tension. And then there's the parts where you run for the helicopter, with shaking hands on the edge of the seat... or the nursery, where I actually had to gather my courage to continue, and in the basement, I personally went in sort of the blind rage mode from the Scarface game... Most intense horror game, from quite creepy to quite all-out run 'n' gun, but always on the edge.

Shambo commented on Eternal Darkness Trademark Renewal Increases H...:

A 3ds remake could be quite nice, a WiiU remake also, but less refreshing maybe. I'd say: do a Bayonetta 2, Nintendo. Make a superb sequel, remaster the first with some extra's, put them both on discs in an amazing collector's edition, and... profit. It's one of my favourite games ever, but even I am getting tired of the constantly renewed false hope... And since we're not hearing anything about Project Zero / Fatal Frame 5, missing out on the REmake remaster, or only see speculations about a possible ZombiU sequel, I really want SOMETHING within the horror genre to look forward to...

Naggers gonna nag, I guess. It's either too different, or too much the same. You can't make 'em all happy, but you CAN stop caring about the ones that NEVER are.

I'm looking forward to it, if those in power haven't brought WWIII (no, not the next Nintendo system) to Europe by then.

Shambo commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

@Kolzig Yeah, a painful reminder of Fatal Frame 4 (would've been Project Zero 4 over here...) Well, Nintendo made me mod my Wii for that game, and now I use it to play fan-translated roms of some of my favourite games ever: Sweet Home (NES) and Mother 3 (GBA) for example.

On topic: Bayonetta 2 is my GOTY, no doubt. I've been waiting for it eagerly eversince the very first announcement and teaser, and it wasn't a disappointment!

Shambo commented on Renegade Kid Is Bringing Survival Horror Title...:

Have the originals of 1 and 2, 2 had to be imported since Europe never got it.

Which seems to be a bit of a problem... We also still haven't seen Moon on 3DS (still have the original though). I really look forward to Dementium in 3D, especially the second game, when running can be done by pushing the analog stick further... But when are we ever going to get it?

Shambo commented on Weirdness: Sony Uses Art From Super Smash Bros...:

@vonseux Yeah, my thoughts exactly... Mega Man artwork from Smash Bros, Thavis Touchdown from NMH, the second game being Nintendo exclusive, Leon Kennedy RE4 artwork, while still the best physical version of the game was Nintendo exclusive, the monkey from Timesplitters could be excused for the first game being PS exclusive as far as I know, but the multiplayer was one of the biggest aspects and PS2 only supported 2 controllers,... If anything -without being a fan boy, yet as a simple fan of Nintendo's work- this proves to me they had to look quite hard to fill their screen with diverse 'Sony' characters... And I know they have quite some, but the amount of licenses needed for All Star Battle (or what was it called again) proves they lack when compared to Nintendo's Brawler.

Shambo commented on Review: GetClose: A Game for RIVALS (Wii U eShop):

@rjejr Ah yes Castle Crashers :D also great game overall. I love co-op with some versus aspects, like the fights over the princess. Or Four Swords Adventures, Mario 3d world (those crowns... Every time I played it co-op, we ended up 'fighting' over the crown and failing halfway a level, because it turned into a smash fest!

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

Pokken Fighters, at home, Wii U. Plenty to choose from, no second step required, profit!

Stealth Inc / Shovel Knight twin pack would be a DEFINITE insta-buy!

Also, team up and put them games together on a disc!

Edit: how about Amiibo Crossing?
