Honestly if things were fairly judged, its only the action award and remaster that would be hard for Nintendo based products to win. I'm hopeful because MK8, Smash, Bayo 2 and Pokemon are packed with quality content and Nintendo as a company should win hands down.

ShigKirby commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

I've had no problem with Sonic Team with Unleashed, Colors, Generations and Lost World Wii U. I really liked Transformed as a celebration of SEGA's finest franchises. Its only DIMPS going off of Sonic Teams ideas that creates uninspired rushed games. I don't mind the gameplay as a fan of Jak and Daxter, Rayman 3, Sonic and Ratchet and Clank as they were my childhood but it looks so lifeless without much going on like Big Red Button didn't try. If they didn't try perhaps from them having a deadline before Smash and the TV show continues any further then why should I? Graphics don't make a game but when an early 360 game back in 2006 like Sonic 06 looks on par with this thats a serious problem. At least with the forementioned Sonic Team games, they were full of life, animated and had kickass soundtracks. This is for young kids, that's it. I hate that excuse but that literally is a fact as it doesn't seem to incorperate any sense that it wants to appeal to anyone else like the wider appeal of Mario or even Sonic Team's efforts that aren't aimed at young kids but definitely appeals to them. There is also polish in presentation and frame rate in those games despite still retaining some flawed design such as the Wisps and bosses in Lost World and spending way too much time making long Werehog stages in Unleashed.

ShigKirby commented on Shovel Knight For Wii U & 3DS Launches In Euro...:

@ricklongo Yeah I'm contemplating whether to get the DKC SNES original trilogy or Shovel Knight as I was going to get the trilogy as I wasn't sure if it would get past final testing by the end of the year when my Platinum membership runs out. I might get both and forget about Megaman X as I've played the original 6 NES games so I don't want to start something where I only play the original due to the first being the most influential. Had to forget the original DK Land game for this as well. ;(

I'm also set on Bayonetta 1 and 2 to support it here in the UK. Smash 3ds isn't really my thing. Portability isn't important to me but I'm definitely getting Smash Wii U this holiday season. Got to support the more obscure titles that deserve more than anything else on the market like Destiny or FIFA.

People at college ask me if I've gotten FIFA last weekend and packs to go with it and to them I say no. Its a scam at this point. Loving playing Hyrule Warriors. UK baffle me but I'm content in knowing the quality on Wii U is assured for this holiday season and onwards as a small minority.

ShigKirby commented on Multi-Generational Paper Mario Stage Confirmed...:

Hope to see more set pieces from both games in this stage(s). Great to see The Thousand Year Door as you would think they could have just included Super Paper Mario instead but chose this. Perhaps they learned that if there was going to be a Paper Mario game on Wii U, it should be more like TTYD. I like all Paper Mario games but the environments, characters and RPG elements were striped back for trial and error gameplay that follows the same old story that the series attempted to stay away from. Maybe the success of Dream Team might show how on the other side of the RPG Mario games it felt familiar but also added something new and fresh that didn't streamline and go against the early screenshots. Anyway, Glitzpit should be included. FEEL THE RAWK!!!

@SavoirFaire I suppose having the 3DS XL helps and I usually pick up control schemes very quickly. Took a couple of hours but after 50+ hours playing, they become second nature to me. It can strain your hands so taking short breaks is adviced. Seriously though, the XL helps tremendously. I remember first setting down in the burning town and not being able to control the camera while moving. I couldn't aim and kept doing the sliding dodge instead of running normally, but as the intensity and need to explore the environment opened up, so did my understanding and bearings on the controls. Don't get me started on the first time I had to control that motorcycle in the Labyrinth. :D
