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...:

@Porky
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.

@WingedSnagret
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.

@SuperCharlie78
I know, right? I've only had the game for a fortnight and I've already clocked 120 hours!

For reference, there are only 336 hours in a fortnight. That means I've spent over a third of the past two weeks playing Animal Crossing.

For further reference, that's only seven hours less than Aron Ralston spent between a rock and a hard place.

And I didn't even have to cut my arm off!

The scorpion/tarantula fight has been in there since at least Wild World. A new cool thing is in the next room over, where you find the golden stag facing off against the horned Hercules on a tree stump.

Two bugs enter, one bug... gets flipped onto its back...

It's cool!
