Shiryu commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

I am glad I could foresee it would become a sort of rarity, So I'm glad to have bought mine on release day in Europe. Again, I have no need to have any of these games on Wii U because I already own the physical discs, but I hope no one who never played any "Metroid Prime" passes this up. The music from each of the three games alone is worth the ten moneys.

Can't come fast enough! Since "Project CARS" is still some many months off, I sure could use some of this right about now. There really are huge gaps on the Wii U's library and "NFS Most Wanted" can only do so much.



Shiryu commented on Video: This Guy Loves Nintendo Way More Than Y...:

I can definitely relate, but lack of space and uncertainty for the future keeps me holding on to my €uros in case of some sort of emergency. But definitely, Nintnedo makes me smile and has been with me for the past three decades, making my life much more bearable along the way.



Shiryu commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@EllenJMiller Oh hi there, familiar face from the webs!

I was lucky enough to have a few Japanese and American imports on my (ridiculously extensive) Wii game collections and I must say It's beyond me why "Excitebots" remained a US exclusive. It and the original "Excite Truck" are two of my personal top favourites on the Wii and I would very much welcome an HD outing or the series.

I am unsure but I bet you will not include "The Skycrawlers: Innocent Aces" from Project Aces / Namco on that second part of the list so I would just like to remind folks that yes, there is an "Ace Combat" game on the Wii and it's utter brilliant (if you play with GameCube Pad instead of motion controls).

As I previously stated, I own every Wii game they will probably released on the Wii U and since I still have my Wii assembled right besides my Wii U (I still play a silly amount of GameCube games on it) these releases aren't for me but I must admit, 10€ for such classics as "Mario Galaxy 2" are quite a bargain, even more so if you never played them on last gen.



Shiryu commented on Review: Axelay (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

@CaptMcCloudAran That sucks. I'm from Portugal so I know exactly how it's like to live in a country where you don't have an official Nintendo presence. I read the recent news that Nintendo is puling out of Brazil, but you should do the game anyway and then find a third party publisher outside



Shiryu commented on Review: Axelay (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

Hey, that's my video! I really miss shmups, I wish they were making news ones for 3DS and Wii U. A guy can dream... and to think there was once "Axelay 2" on the pipeline before the team left Konami and founded Treasure...



Shiryu commented on Sonic Boom Gets a Whopping 1GB+ Update in Euro...:

Not sure I will be able to spare the Wii U's internal memory on this... "garbage". I don't believe the game can be fixed with any number of patches, it should have never been released in it's current boxed state. I dislike being treated like this as a paying customer and I will forever remember this game every time I see a "Sega" logo on any future purchases I intend to make. They should just finish the game an send every costumer a free replacement disc.



Shiryu commented on Review: 3D After Burner II (3DS eShop):

It has aged to perfection. Having this and all of SEGA's awesome sprite scaling arcades in my pocket is a sign we truly live in the future. Highly recommended, the 3D stereoscopic effect makes it even more awesome than the original.



Shiryu commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

I am curious to see what will come out of this... but I am no fan of Namco's freemium model for stuff like what they are doing with Soulblade and Ace Combat. Time will tell, I guess... but that's definitely KOS-MOS allright.



Shiryu commented on First Impressions: Taking To The Skies In Ace ...:

I am a big fan of the series, really big fan of Namco / Project Aces fine arcade flight sims shooters series. In fact and surprisingly, the original 3DS entry is my favourite of the series due to that awesome L+R manoeuvring technique and a very impressive plane roster. I really hope this revised entry reaches more people than the sadly overlooked original, because I really wish Namco would consider a full fledged "Ace Combat" on Wii U (FYI I dislike the "Ace Combat Infinity" freemium model.)



Shiryu commented on Project Treasure Is Bandai Namco's Wii U Exclu...:

I would kill to have a "Ace Combat" on Wii U... even "Ridge Racer"... definitely a "Soul Calibur". But not those free-to-play, pay for fuel like "Ace Combat Infinity", proper, real, boxed, complete experiences. I still have a lot of fun playing "Teeken Tag Team Tournament 2" even 2 years from it's release. I will look into this when it's released.



Shiryu commented on 3D After Burner II Set to Jet Into Europe on 1...:

Yep, day one for me! I am still very, very upset at SEGA for the mess "Sonic Boom" is, but "Afterburner" much like "Outrun" are pretty much some of my gaming childhood memories, so carrying an arcade in my pocket is a luxury I won't pass for just 5€.



Shiryu commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Makes Top 20 Ch...:

@KevTastic84 You are indeed correct sir. As I am about to finish "Bayonetta 2" and am looking forward to "Captain Toad", I hope to complete "Watch_Dogs" with the occasional "Smash Bros" binge. DLC packs for "Hyrule Warriors" and "Mario Kart 8" will also get me back to those games , but... It would be nice to see some new Wii U releases in the next few months.



Shiryu commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Makes Top 20 Ch...:

I still can't find the game at major retailers around here, but it is expected to come out this Friday. I knew a January 2 release day would mess things up. Anyway, my biggest concern is... after I buy Captain Toad, what else can I buy for Wii U?! I fear another big software drought on the way. In two years, I manage to gather 64 retail Wii U games. There is no way I can keep my 32 games per year average going this year... :(



Shiryu commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

"Xenoblade Chronicles X" for me, but it is always very hard to pick anything on a list when there is a new Zelda title in there. I hope but fear optimism and naivety from my part for better third party support (I assure there is money on my bank account that could have been in Ubisofts's, Activision's, Rockstar, WB Game's among others fiscal year gross revenue reports). I'm also quite looking forward to "Devil's Third" and have my fingers crossed for some new Wii U exclusive from Platinum Games. I also really hope Starfox on Wii U becomes the epic game it always deserved to become. Roll on, 2015!



Shiryu commented on Feature: ​Tales From The Frontline Of Game B...:

It's thanks to these guys that I have a not perfect (perfection is for the Amiga only) but very acceptable "Speedball 2 Brutal Deluxe" to play anywhere I carry my Game Boy Micro and for that they have my eternal thanks.



Shiryu commented on Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (...:

Online multiplayer has been completely removed from our version, frame rate is inconsistent and controls more often than not get in the way. There is no local multiplayer. After buying this, I picked up "Transformers Prime" super cheap and I advise you to go for that one instead for your Autobots on Decepticon action hunger.



Shiryu commented on Dreaming of a Nintendo Christmas - Martin Watts:

@MegaWatts I did, for the first time on Wii U, it's the true evolution of "Devil May Cry" with absolutly epic moments and very fun nods to Sega classics. I fear even "Bayonetta 2" will need to do something incredible to beat it. stay away from my Youtube Channel, I've uploaded some of of my favourite moments in the game. I did the hardest thing possible: I went to the game without prior knowledge of anything, and that's the true way to really appreciate it.



Shiryu commented on The World's Oldest Video Game Media Brand Is B...:

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!



Shiryu commented on European Version Of Super Retro Trio Boasts Im...:

@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.
