Shire commented on Shovel Knight is Coming to Retail:

"Fans can expect a firm release date on Plague of Shadows later this month"

So, like... in a few hours? 'Cause there's only so much later this month can get before we hit the next one.



Shire commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

I really don't like that they're saying off the bat it'll be like Game of Thrones. Zelda is already its own story. It doesn't need to be like anything else.

Especially not Game of Thrones. It's nothing like Zelda - there's no great quest, no real clash between good and evil. It's all about the morally-ambiguous characters, the politics, and... all the stuff you're not going to see in a family show...



Shire commented on Interview: Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the...:

Like others have said, I really like the sound of this guy. Thanks for the interview!

It's a shame to hear he cancelled his top-down adventure game, but I guess if he lost enthusiasm it was probably for the best. And it means we get Gunman Clive 2!

With panda bears! And dinosaurs! And more ducks!



Shire commented on New Mega Evolutions Revealed for Pokémon Omeg...:

Nope. I reuse to believe that's not a mistranslation and will remain adamant of that belief in the face of all evidence to the contrary.

Lightning Rod would be a completely terrible and nonsensical ability for Mega Sceptile and I'm sure it gets something much cooler, like, I don't know, Ice Rod or Super Speed Boost.

Mega Swampert will of course get Sap Sipper, and Mega Blaziken's ability will be changed to Defeatist or something like that.



Shire commented on Infamous Series was Originally Inspired by Ani...:

I for one think more games should be inspired by Animal Crossing.

I mean, can you imagine a zombie game in the style of Animal Crossing? You live in a little town with a few other people and you have lots of mundane tasks to do during the day, but at night the zombies come and you have to fight them! You could also travel to your friends' towns and help them fight zombies.

Wait... that should be an Animal Crossing game!



Shire commented on Kickstarter Campaign Launches For ReVeN:

Well, it's certainly not hard to see the Metroid, uh, "inspiration".

However... it has been over a decade now since Samus got a nice side-scroller, and this does look pretty cool and atmospheric, and the developers seem to have added a few cool features of their own... Yeah, I think I can get behind this.



Shire commented on Nintendo Has "Great Games" But Is Facing A "St...:

Yeah, I'm of that opinion too.

Nintendo make great hardware, and they still seem to be dominating the handheld market (as in, actual dedicated handheld gaming devices), but it's their IPs that draw people in. If you can get Pokémon on your iPad or the new Zelda for your Xbox, how many people are going to buy a 3DS or a Wii U?



Shire commented on Nintendo Open To Applying Zelda: Link Between ...:

Although I did really enjoy Link Between Worlds, it wasn't because of how it built on Link to the Past. I actually thought it was relying too much on nostalgia for the earlier game when it didn't need to.



Shire commented on Renegade Kid and Nicalis Titles Reduced on eSh...:

Hmm. I might get Mutand Mudds Deluxe. I already have the 3DS version, so I didn't want to pay full price just for the ghost levels, but at half-price it's pretty tempting.

And $3 Ikachan sounds good too.
