Shiryu commented on Take A Glance At The First Screens From Downto...:

Could never understand what I was supposed to to in the original Famicom game, but there was a fun episode of Game Center CX where Arino played it. I really wished they bring Kunio games to the west...



Shiryu commented on Interview: IRONFALL Invasion's Developers on B...:

It's really impressive only 3 people made such a game. I also know I am old because I remember the first game these guys made, "Jim Powers". I would really love to have more games like these on Wii U as well. All the best for future projects!



Shiryu commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

That Captain Falcon Kid story broke my heart. I'm glad it all turned out ok. Truly, the lure of easy money at the expense of passionate,more righteous and better educated people is a poison. But I guess scalping is just part of humans greedy nature... we have to take the good with the bad, but... shiryusly, stealing toys from children? Inexcusable.



Shiryu commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

I came to start a riot if "F-Zero X" was not on this list. I would very much like to have the "complete" F-Zero X + the 64DD only Expansion Kit with the course and ship designer in a single package to play on 3DS. Thanks to extra power of the 3DS I truly believe it would not be that hard to remaster all textures and increase to infinite the draw distance. Local multiplayer would be welcome a well as the ability to share tracks and vehicles. And it would all fit in the pocket because hey, we re living in the future. Make it happen Ninty!

PS: The current offering of wrestling games on other consoles is truly poor. I would not say "no" to some sort of "Virtual Pro Wrestling" style game on 3DS.



Shiryu commented on Review: Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Wii U eShop / ...:

The GBA is still the closest thing I ever got to a fully functional portable SNES (still love my Micro) and SNES conversions like this one where always very welcome additions in my games collection. However the GBA was not able to compete with the SNES in some aspects (namely the sound) and as such I must agree with this review and consider the SNES game a better option for virtual console owners. So Nintendo, about those SNES games coming out on the 3DS Virtual Console... what's up on that front? I want to give you moneys! Again!



Shiryu commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

Hope it truly is the turning point for the Wii U. Can't decide whether I am looking forward more to this or "Xenoblade Chronicles X". anyway, as long as I endure the current lack of retail Wii U games, I should have an awesome end of year in front of the TV.



Shiryu commented on Review: Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy+ (3DS):

It might be hard to believe but this game remains my favourite of the whole series because of the way you can cut off your engine with the L+R buttons. I really don't need the Amiibo excuse to re-buy this and play it all over again, I just love being able to get such a complete "Ace Combat" experience in my pocket. I really hope this "takes off" big this second time around because from the very first day I bought my Wii U, I hope to see a game in the series on it.

PS: I would also like to state that the arcade controls might feel comfortable for series novices, but they are atrocious for anyone who played any game of the series and understands how flight is supposed to work. My advice is to stick with classic, "real" controls for the proper ability to roll, pitch and yaw like the real thing.



Shiryu commented on Review: IRONFALL Invasion (3DS eShop):

Hmmm... I will consider it. I still want to applause and support the effort of three people to develop such an ambitious shooter. It might all have been done somewhere else, but guess what, it hasn't been done on 3DS before and that's a real plus to me.



Shiryu commented on Meet Playtonic, A Studio Of Ex-Rare Staff That...:

I wish them all the best, I have been having a really hard time to try to keep up where all of RARE's talented folks are up to and where are they now a days. Would be cool to have their games on Nintendo too, my Wii U is starving, a sadly recurring famine for the past years during this part of the year.



Shiryu commented on IronFall: Invasion, Nintendo Anime Channel and...:

"Ironfall" looks stuning for such a small team behind it. Hope it delivers, will have to wait for the NL review first. I know they don't have the resources to port it to the Wii U, but I could surely use something like that for my home system.



Shiryu commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X to Feature an Enemy Enc...:

Mandatory considering the amount of enemy drops and the fact we will probably really need it to complete several quests. Can't wait for this one, but I know I will probably drop from the face of the Earth when I get my hands on it.



Shiryu commented on Details For The New Langrisser Title On 3DS Em...:

Ah, the silliness of female armours... anyway, I rather enjoyed War Song on Megadrive and the fan translated SNES game, I hope this makes it to the west. I do miss NCS/Masaya... they truly made stellar games.



Shiryu commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

I plan on extensive Splatoon video cover (and every other Wii U title out this year for that matter), if Nintendo doesn't want me to make money from the free publicity I am providing, I must comply with their wishes. But that does not mean I agree with them on this, and I am sure having people who live off YouTube earning from their videos will be many times more upset than me. It's just not easy producing quality video material and people should be rewarded for their efforts. That's how YouTube go to be what it is today, Nintendo needs to keep up with the times on this one.
