Shiryu commented on Feature: Go Fast - An Ode To The Glorious Chao...:

@Chubblings Thank you. I am really sorry for that, the situation over here in Portugal (and most of Europe) is not as bad as in the US, and up to recently I had even seen several Captain Falcon Amiibos lying in on the shelves. I hope Nintendo manages to even things out in time. If you can, try to get one straight out of Japan, there is very little shortage of Amiibos over there as far as my friends who either live or visit there keep telling me.

@Kirk Yes, I am sure of it, I remember you posting about it somewhere in a comments section and I mentioned I would love to play a shmup like that on Nintendo consoles. Not sure if I even mentioned I would like to make music for a shmup...

@brianvgplayer Wait, it's sadly not that easy. You need some soldering to bypass the CIC chip because most of late generation cartridges have built in region lock outs that prevent them from running and instead displays a message mentioned the cart is to be used in another regions. "Dark Half" was released in 1996, so I am unsure it would work without a bypass or at least a bridge adapter (my weapon of choice is my Action Replay Mark 3 cart).

@Tempaura I would have bought this game and many others that had come out in Japan for the Super Famicom only if there was a legal way to purchase them in English. Thanks to impossible to navigate copyright issues, there is no way any of these games will ever make it to the Virtual Console either. Sadly I am unable at this time to learn Japanese. And on a more personal opinion... isn't a bigger crime to let such masterpieces be lost to the immense potential of the western audience? My life would surely be poorer had I not played and understood "Seiken Desentsu 3".

I'm freakin' loving this game. The whole duality aspect is extremely well done and Gideon Zhi from AGTP has warned me that in order to achieve the best possible ending, you have to be really bad with the bad guy so in the end the good guy can win. I'm gonna save this game for Summer vacation since I am still enjoying "Super Shell Monsters Story".

Shiryu commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

I do believe Immortan Joe said it best: MEDIOCRE!

Reading the comments I was just reminded that a lot of people from the crowd funding pie were Wii U owners! I do understand the physics engine of this game is incredible and resource hogging, but why does only Nintendo seem able to produce 1080p 60fps quality games for the system? Why did they keep saying the game was running great on Wii U an year ago and now 23 fps!? I consider this situation being handled really poorly as is.

Shiryu commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

...well, that's that. I no longer believe this game will ever make it to the Wii U, a real shame I was really looking forward to play it. I wonder if anyone will pick up the slack for lack of good (non-kart) racer on Wii U... will I have to live off "NFS Most Wanted" until the Wii U's demise? "90's Arcade Racer" can't come soon enough...

Shiryu commented on Video: What Do You Get When You Combine Mario ...:

I would LOVE to have the upcoming "Mad Max" video game on Wii U. "Fury Road" easily made it to my top 10 movies of all time. The lunacy of that trailer is just oh so spot on perfect it's almost ridiculous. What a lovely day for Blue Shells and Mushrooms.

Shiryu commented on Reminder: The Final Splatoon Global Testfire i...:

Don't tell us, tell Alex. He nearly gave me an heart attack when he tweeted on Sunday that he was sad to have missed the test-fire on Saturday the 16th. For a few seconds there, I actually believed I had missed it because I was goofing off on my other hobbies.

Shiryu commented on A Totally Complete Version Of Star Fox 2 Reall...:

.... GIVE IT TO ME NOW!
There is also somewhere locked up at Rare's offices a 99% prototype of "Killer Instinct 2" for the SNES. So much denied past memories... I hope someone realizes that is far more important to preserve their work than keep it locked away from the world.

Shiryu commented on Wii U Stretch Goal Seemingly Teased for Bloods...:

What a horrible night to be teased. Anyway, wasn't it previously stated on the kickstarter FAQ that they would have to make two different games to make it fit onto the Wii U? I am a patient man, I will wait to see how this turns out.

Shiryu commented on Video: We Tackle The Dual-Stick vs. Motion Con...:

I was messing up big time when fighting in close quarters (and that almost all the time when not using the charge shot sniper ink thing) until I turned the motion controls off. Perhaps too many years of COD on twin sticks have made their damage (and yes, I do come from the mouse+keyboard PC shooters). However, Wiimote was spot on perfect on "Metroid Prime 3" so I will give motion controls a second try when "Splatoon" comes out.

Shiryu commented on Hudson's SNES JRPG Super Shell Monsters Story ...:

Ops, sorry Damien! I should have submitted this back on Satuday... when I made that video... :x

@TheRealThanos I believed this one was completely lost, development came to a complete stop a few years ago, but they somehow got it together again managed to release it! You can read all about it on the Dynamic Desings website.

@No-longer-postin: That is impossible because Hudson has been acquired by Konami a few years back and... we all know what Konami is about to become. Plus this is a fan made translation, it's extremely hard to be able to sell these without an incredibly complicated agreement between all parts.

PS: I'm loving the game!

Shiryu commented on Horizon Chase Pays Tribute To SNES Classic Top...:

I learned from this game when Barry Leitch joined in and took over soundtrack duties. He is one of my childhood musical influences and responsible for a ton of Commodore Amiga classic tunes, including the music from SNES "Top Gear" which is in fact remixed tunes from the Amiga games. If the gameplay holds up, I would certainly pick it up. I should definitely do a cover/remix album from the music of the 3 SNES "Top Gears". "Utopia" remains my favorite of his works.
