Shiryu commented on Review: NBA 2K13 (Wii U):
@Neko_Ichigofan Very sad indeed.
Shiryu commented on Video: Let This Xenoblade Chronicles X Battle ...:
@Desy64 60€. You bet, I'm working really hard to finish new music album and NL article so I have December all to myself and this game.
@Desy64 Fisico, edição limitada. O meu está encomendado no Corte Ingles de LX.
... give it to me now! NOW!
Shiryu commented on The Super Famicom is 25 Years Old:
@Xenocity That happened to me too in Europe. Mind you, they had to shut up really fast once I got to school one day and told them I had "Street Fighter II: The World Warrior" at home...
I would be here all night and I would still be typing about it. It remains my all time favourite home console. Take the example of just those two launch titles in Japan. Both offer more gameplay thrills, more replayability, simply more fun than anything in the shelves today. Just think about that for a few seconds and look how strange this grown up industry has become.

@UboaNoticedYou I wish Shin'en would allow the use of custom tracks streaming out of the SD card, I wanted to make a full, original soundtrack to go with this one...
This is the only game that will keep me from marathons of "Xenoblade Chronicles X" and that is saying something!
Shiryu commented on Review: The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy's Grand Adve...:
I really want to buy it, but it arrived on the shelves over here at €70 (!) so I went "No, thank you." and am looking to eCommerce solutions for this one.
Shiryu commented on Preview: Getting Lost in the World of Xenoblad...:
@kaiiboraka Kotau TAY Nintendo Life take over. They won't see us coming. Heck, we are already infiltrated.
Shiryu commented on Hardware Review: Gamepad Digital GPD XD:
I was waiting for this review, looks like I will be picking one up them. Thanks Damien!
Shiryu commented on Poll: Did The Nintendo Direct Comeback Fire on...:
I was gonna pick up a PS4 today so I could play the new Star Wars Battlefront game next week. I ended up no doing it. That says it all really.
Shiryu commented on Sacked Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Chris Prange...:
@ThePirateCaptain The first end of level boss. You heard him on trailers.
... yep, my game of the year for sure, no one will see me for a couple of months come December.
Shiryu commented on Devil's Third Online for PC to Include New Mod...:
@Charlosa Itagaki clearly said that would never happen, so that a definitive "No".
I really hope some or all of these get to the Wii U version, we certainly could use some sot of day after release support. I asked mister Itagaki, but he has not replied yet over at Facebook (and trust me, he will reply, he replies to everyone!).
Shiryu commented on Capcom "Will Consider The Possibility" Of Supp...:
Don't tell them I would pay full price for games like "Ultra Street Fighter IV" on the Wii U. I will worry about NX when it arrives, I would much rather have their support right now, but no one is in this for charity right?
Shiryu commented on Cybernator Creator Talks Destructible Environm...:
@Utena-mobile Yes it is. It's still a great purchase... as long as you don't know what you're missing out. To be fair, no way the president suicide level would ever made it past the censors.
It's a shame so much was butchered in our western versions of the game. One of the finest soundtracks ever to grace the SNES too. I need to go replay it...
Shiryu commented on Video: Learn All About Skells in This Xenoblad...:
I think I need this in my life badly.

Shiryu commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:
Congratulations! I have lurked many years before posting my first comment, would have never believed I would one day contributing articles to NL. Here's to ten more!

Shiryu commented on These Lush Star Fox Zero Wallpapers Will Make ...:
Wish I could Use the Boost to Get Through the first few months of 2016 already...
Shiryu commented on No, SNES Super FX Title Vortex Was Never A Tra...:
I often wonder if the SFX kept evolving to greater clock speeds and lower production prices if we could have a whole bunch more of 3D stuff on SNES. Argonaut's "FX Fighter" would have been a cool SNES addition, it was very nice on PC. I too wonder how would a Transformers game would look like on SNES... the more you know!
Shiryu commented on Video: Taking A Look At The New 3DS Retro Plat...:
Rather cool IMO! However the danger of smashing my 3DS when trying to hit the snooze button is real and as such I must decline.
Shiryu commented on Feature: Finding Top Speed in FAST Racing NEO:
I wish they put it on a box and sell it at retail. Of course I will buy it anyway, I am one speed freak, F-Zero missing machine.
Shiryu commented on Video: Jessica Chobot Is Samus Aran In This La...:
Psylocke in Space!!!
Shiryu commented on Nintendo Is Unique, Different And Does Its Own...:
It's the reason why I stick around, both the good and the bad times.
Shiryu commented on Bertil Hörberg Releases Playable Game Boy ROM...:
Eh, just submitted the tip after making this video. Feel free to add it to the post. Incredibly cool work!
Shiryu commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Super Metroid:
@Calllack I spend all my life playing on tiny TVs, I didn't have my own bedroom in my parents house (I slept in the living room). When I moved out and got my own place, the first priority was the biggest possible TV screen on the living room since it would be where I would spend all my free time. I wanted a 60" but it did not fit the stand's frame so I had to go 56". One day I will have 120" so I can count all the pixels Samus is made out of.
Funny you mention this one, because I was playing it just yesterday. Every year the horror is the same: Is the battery backup still working? 2015: Still working.
Shiryu commented on Review: Human Resource Machine (Wii U eShop):
Hmm... will have to take this one under consideration.
Shiryu commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:
Western civilization is once again saved thanks to Nintendo's quick reactions! I'm really feeling it!
Shiryu commented on CyberGadget's Ridiculously Well-Equipped Retro...:
This one is very, very interesting... I wonder if they will be distributed in Europe in some way... will wait for your review first.
Shiryu commented on Rejoice, The Wii U Has Finally Outsold Sega's ...:
... If you need me, I'll be crying in the corner over there.
Shiryu commented on Feature: The Making Of Eternal Darkness: Sanit...:
Excellent piece! It's games like this why I keep coming back to my GameCube library, one which I consider superior in variety to the Wii and Wii U. A real shame those times are long gone now.
Shiryu commented on A Level Made by Shinya Arino Will Be Included ...:
Just my favorite TV show of all time!
Shiryu commented on A Teaser Site for Xenoblade Chronicles X Has J...:
...hmmm, I think I better start writing up an article about all of it.
Shiryu commented on Lost NES Title Wonderland Dizzy Made Available...:
@JJtheTexan ...hmmm, it's not easy to explain this one, but yes, some other Dizzy made it to the NES.
Played quite a bit yesterday and I had forgotten the wonderful feeling of being stumped in a world where the Internet and GameFaqs can't help you out.
Shiryu commented on Review: Guitar Hero Live (Wii U):
@XCWarrior There are laws in Portugal about that and while store clerks will never give out misleading information, sadly it's the parents that are willingly buying 15+ and 18+ videogames for their 10 year olds.
@XCWarrior It's all about educating the consumer. Something I do rather often, sometimes even at local retailer when the people selling the games don't know how to answer other costumers in line. It's tragedy all over.
@Octane I read about it this morning. For some reason I believe the reviews they were writing on were about this game, so my confused state of mind remained all the way till @TheWPCTraveler corrected me. It's amazing how so many simply ignore the reasons why we had a Video Game crash back in 1983, they seem more than happy to make all the same mistakes over and over ( as in flooding the market with lots and lots of crap and accessories no normal person could possibly afford) and add all new ones (hidden fees, giant patches, rushed products in the shelves). Y_Y
@TheWPCTraveler ... $3000!?
... Doc and Marty were right, 2015 sucks!
@TheWPCTraveler I have no clue, you're probably right, I keep mixing them up because well... they are the same "game".
UPDATE: You are correct good sir.
I can't afford to have more plastic lying around in the living room (Amiibos, Disney Infinity and Skylanders made sure of that) yet I am really glad Activision decided to give costumers the option to buy this on Wii U. However, my mind is still baffled with the fact that we are not getting "Transformers Devastation" on Wii U, a game that does not disappoint in anyway (unlike previous entries). So, as much as Harmonix worked hard on this, I simply can't commit. Activision need not worry, they still get my money from Skylanders anyway, a shame they don't want even more of it...
Shiryu commented on Legend of Zelda Maker Fan Project is Currently...:
I hope Nintendo takes notes before sending in the C&D letter. Both the Wii U Gamepad and the Nintendo 3DS touch screen would make this sort of RPG maker GUI quite viable, but now it is just a question if they will do it. Would not mind to have 16 bit "LTTP" style tiles to mess around with.
