This news saddens me, it was my "go to" magazine for import reviews back in the day. It was always exciting to buy a new issue. It also taught me some of the most important things I learned in my life, like all the special moves in "Street Fighter II". Thank you, C&VG!

@Einherjar I own every cartridge based gaming console from the original Game boy up the GBA, with the biggest missing ones being the Master System and the NES. I too hope someday someone give us a N64 alternative, but for now I guess I will have to keep playing that on it's original hardware.

@Einherjar I changed my mind about the Retron5 after Nintendo Life's exposé regarding the usage of code from the Retroarch project. I will stick with my softmoded Wii and Android gaming tablet for most of my retrogaming needs, but I do love my extensive cartridge collection...

Shiryu commented on Platinum Games’ Producer Thanks Wii U Owners...:

Local retailers messes up big time over here and my pre-ordered First Print Edition became regular 2 games package. All the hate in the world to the people responsible for that fubar episode, but all the love in the Universe to Platinum games. I hope to see more Wii U games in the future from them, and I know they don't really do sequels much, but would love to tryout Vanquish on Wii U... and maybe Vanquish 2?

The PC version had a wonky start, but constant updates with bug fixes and overall balancing issues made the game a very good alternative to owning the actual board game. Now, if only someone had enough Faith in Mankind to put "Space Marine" on Wii U...

@Mega719 "Mass Effect 3 Special Edition" is indeed an amazing game, but neither Ea or Bioware had nothing to do with it, it was the full responsibility of Straight Right, the same Australina studi oresponsive for the also very impressive "Deus Ex" for Wii U. Those guys know their stuff, I wish more companies would give them game to port for Wii U, I would snap them all up.

@Nico07 NFS is amazing, stunning game really. Very glad that Criterion put it on the Wii U. However, and this isvery sad, the latest update randomly crashes the game due to some sort of memory leak, the game just freezes and the Wii U starts screaming like is in pain. I have to unplug it from the power cord, it's the only way to get it responsive again. Very poor customer service right there.

@Kaze_Memaryu I know, I read early that it was canned on all systems (and refer that in my comment). However EA is far from being in my good graces at the moment, and every time I remember their comment on the "support" for Nintendo I can't but recall that meant year copy+paste versions of FIF on Wii and 3DS with updated rosters. Classy!

Shiryu commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Hmm, that's a slightly lower grade I was waiting for such good slice of content for us starving for Wii U content. For what I played, I score it 7.5. My biggest complaint is the current price for a one year old game, it should be cheaper. I still recommend you give it a go, it's the only GTA style of fun you can get on the Wii U right now. I hope to see more Ubisoft games in the future that don't have the words "Dance" and "Just" in the title...

Shiryu commented on Digital Foundry Gives Its Take on Watch Dogs f...:

My only disappointment with the game so far is that I was expecting to have the car dashboards while driving in first person view, because those are brilliant and remind me a lot of "Driver: San Francisco". Other than that (and the silly 70€ price tag), I am happy to have the game on Wii U and thank Ubisoft for not giving up on releasing it half way.

Shiryu commented on Weirdness: Factory Error Results in Dual-Wield...:

@Quorthon The lackod "Call of Duty" is one of my biggest thorns this year. There is not technical reason for it not to be able tor un on Wii U. And when I say COD, I also say "AC Rogue", "Shadow of Mordor" and even "GTA V". Very sad, it's incredible I haven't picked up a PS4 by now, but less games to play means I can spend more time making music, so it kinda evens out.

Shiryu commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

@FullbringIchigo Sadly "AC Unity" was a huge brainwash on costumers, with big marketing campaign and big money throw into it (almost reminds of me oof "Aliens: ColonialMarine"). It's budget must haven dozens of time superiors to "Sonic Boom". I believe "Sonic Boom" failed due to developer team mismanagement since we now know most of the team at Big Red Button Entertainment left half way into development, while "AC Unity" simply began falling apart soon before release, with their statement s that 24 fps was better to deliver a cinematic experience, I knew something was up. I still couldn't believe the state the game currently is on the shops, certainly not worth 70€ now if ever. I am sad tough, because I would really want "AC Rogue" on Wii U. That one I would buy in a snap.

The 3DS version is quite solid when stacked side-by-side with the Wii U. But I am glad they are not a commercial success, because if they were, we would be in real trouble. It would mean that we costumers are "OK" with buying unfinished, unpolished products. We must give a clear message to SEGA on this: We will not buy unfinished products..

Shiryu commented on Suda51 Explains The Origins Of No More Heroes ...:

@eaglebob345 I finished both, including both versions of the original on Wii (the European ashes version and the proper, US blood one). I've been a big fan of Suda51 works all the way back to SNES Fire Pro Wrestling series, It's a shame I can no longer buy his games because they're not out on Wii U.

Shiryu commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

The current lack of third party supports really hurts me personally. I become a fan of "Mass Effect", "Assassin's Creed" among others bcause they where released on the system, but nowadays even Activision didn't release Call of Duty for our home system of choice. I should be super happy playing "COD: Advanced Warfare", "Assassin's Creed Rogue", "Shadows of Mordor"... it really bums me out, but that's my only complain in two years of owning my Wii U, so I guess it could be far worse. AS for the future, once "Xenoblad Chrnicles X" comes out in the west, I wlll be so happy and entertained you probably wont find me online until I completed the game.
