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.

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.

@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.

@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.

Shambo commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Flipped The Tea Table with Hy...:

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.

Shambo commented on Gallery: It's OK, We Want Each And Every One O...:

@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.

Shambo commented on Interview: Six Miles Under Developer Discusses...:

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...

Shambo commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:

Great, looking forward to be surprised, so I'm not going to think too much about the possibilities (hope often leads to disappointment anyway)

I DO however hope -for that it's been too late since way back- that she makes it in Smash Bros, she gets a Wonder-Eyes Pink, Pikachu, Palutena, Battalion Wars, Pikmin, Okami,... costume, and we get a special edition with steelbook and two discs at least. And the animated movie, so 3 discs. Art books, statues, limited edition controllers, all welcome.

Looking at my list now, I'm ready to take some minor dissappointments.

At least also make a surprise reveal of another Platinum exclusive!

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...)

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... :( ).

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.

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...
