I am the Great Mighty Poo.

Male, 27, Belgium

Collector and fan of (almost) all things Nintendo, I have a wider gaming interest. I like more obscure games, both in rarity and vibe-wise. Other things I collect are movies and figures/statues of game-, comic- and movie characters.

Nintendo probably considered this design too, and when seeing them together it confirms what I never doubted: Nintendo made the right choice out of the two. Of course, if Famicom design was an option, like that lovely GB Micro of gamepad faceplate, it would still win any day. But Famicom is less western, obviously, so far fewer people here have memories of that.

I remember playing videogames in the dark, untill this man said something like "let there be light". And there was light. Or am I mixing up stories here? My memory is rather vague at times.

Anyway, I like it that they kept it womething truely separate, Zelda fans like me will go wherever Link goes, or Ganondorf takes princess Zelda, anyway. Or where moons treathen to fall, moblins roam freely, things are devided in three and spread across lands, or eight items are hidden in dungeons. It doesn't need to be ALL of the above.

Shambo commented on Pokkén Tournament's Concept Even Shocked The ...:

Magokarp SHOULD be in there. And the game SHOULD be on Wii U! Wii U would ship by the tens -if not hundreds- of thousands... 2 vs 2 Magikarp battles, Magikarp CAN learn tackle, so there's that.

Also, Activision and Nintendo should really get together to make Skylanders compatible with at least the Pokémon Amiibo's.

@Frapp I want a see-through one for custom prints, but official ones from all that you said would be more than welcome too! Especially, indeed, a Famicom one. That GBM is the most gorgeous console ever! Got a faceplate for my Wii U gamepad to match.

Love the mushrooms (especially 1-UP) and Animal Crossing ones.

Looking at my 3DS games to see possibly-likely designs... And Etrian Odyssey Untold pops out, Layton vs Wright, Mario & Luigi Dream Team, Bravely Default,... and one like my 3DS XL faceplate of pixelated Mega Man would be nice too.

Shambo commented on Interview: Six Miles Under Developer Discusses...:

WOAH love how this looks! Hope it plays as well! Perhaps the low visibility could be a neat gameplay factor. Say, when in the dark, you get to button bash more, in the light it's more tactical... Would be awesome!

The artwork is like Gunman Clive meats Red Dead Redemption or something, by the way, which makes for some very high expectations...

Shambo commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:

Great, looking forward to be surprised, so I'm not going to think too much about the possibilities (hope often leads to disappointment anyway)

I DO however hope -for that it's been too late since way back- that she makes it in Smash Bros, she gets a Wonder-Eyes Pink, Pikachu, Palutena, Battalion Wars, Pikmin, Okami,... costume, and we get a special edition with steelbook and two discs at least. And the animated movie, so 3 discs. Art books, statues, limited edition controllers, all welcome.

Looking at my list now, I'm ready to take some minor dissappointments.

At least also make a surprise reveal of another Platinum exclusive!

Shambo commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

When lying down I happen to slide my volume all the way up all of a sudden, by accident. This will probably no longer happen. The extra buttons without that bulky attachment are VERY welcome, even if only a few games use them (and I actually like RE better with one slide pad).

Xenoblade is a must for me, still have it on the Wii but I'd LOVE to play this in 3D! It nearly burns the Wii down, so extra hardware power being required is no surprise, and certainly no dealbreaker.

One thing though: I need to know if the Smash Bros 3DS will also be available in the New model in Europe. And I'll have to see the systems (normal, XL) side by side to decide which one to go with. I love the normal 3DS just because it's smaller, but the XL because it's bigger (I know... So logical, and yet...)

Shambo commented on Ubisoft's Latest UK Release Schedule Still Sho...:

Maybe I'll change my pre-order into a 'to be decided' as well... Really, how big companies handle their releases these past few years, had me loving the indie scene even more. Only thing: I love my games on a disc, in a box (with a friggin' manual... :( ).

Shambo commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

I'm starting to believe there's two companies called Capcom, since I see that name in both the better and the worse news, about that company make either the best or worst decisions. With amazingly good and terribly bad games.

Shambo commented on Nintendo of America Unleashes Wii U Game Sizzl...:

So, Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors this year? Zelda and X in 2015? MH4U on 3DS? Amiibo? New 3DS? Splatoon?... (a ton of extra greatness)? And a lot of announcements that are Japan only so far but will hopefully get to the rest of the world...

Nintendo blitzkrieg, the same thing that made 3DS from the very much underappreciated underdog to the one system to rule them all.

Shambo commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Just too late to be thestandard for when the Smash Bros design is released... 2 more 3ds's... IF they don't bring that Monster Hunter design to Europe as well... Haven't even had this many Gamecubes, and I have an entire 16 player Double Dash set-up and a boxed one safely put away...

Shambo commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

Zombi U was a fantastic game, and I still don't get how so many reviewers didn't get it. Did it have some flaws? Sure. But did it deliver an adrenaline rush now and then, tense atmosphere,...? Hell yeah.
Rayman Legends was best on the Wii U as well, and one of my all-time favourite 2D platformers.
Just Dance is like... Just that, dance. Fun in groups, but a system seller? When available anywhere? Let Smash Bros sell the systems, Ubisoft, and focus on a second Zombi U, or a third Red Steel...

Shambo commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

@Zyrac All those points apply to me, by choice, and I still want to add a fourth one: you can't play Smash Bros on your "smart" phone. But you CAN now play the soundtrack while earning play coins, Streetpassing, in between separate bus or train rides for example, anywhere, without having to pay a small fortune for 'free' 'unlimited' data on soon-to-be-outdated devices that break at the slightest touch with short battery life to begin with, better used for other things than youtube. It's nothing but win for 3DS.

Hive Jump looks like my kind of game! Some of the others also have my attention. But Hive Jump... It's like original Metroid and Prime Hunters combined. With Scurge Hive, twin-sticks, and co-op. Yup, I need that to happen!

Shambo commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Nearly impossible to vote, but I chose 360° 3D Galaxy 2 in the end. But I like nearly every step the series took, be it forward, backward, or side-to-side 2D and 3D series.

Still hoping for another sunshine, galaxy, and also the continuation of more "story-driven" "spin-offs", and Luigi's own ghostly series.

And looking forward to Toad's own game, and Mario Maker.

Well, "another Mario game", as they said making fun of themselves and their "haters" alike, has rarely been a bad thing (just not that much into the sports and party games, except for hoops and strikers).

Shambo commented on Alone In The Dark is Set for Yet Another Comeback:

My first experience with the series was actually the GBC version of the new nightmare, and I still find that to be an impressive outing. Later I played it on PS2, and was somewhat disappointed, only to find out that I enjoyed it quite a lot when I later played it on PS1. The reboot, on the other hand... I did finish it on Wii, somehow. But only a few parts were enjoyable. And first-person aiming was hilarious when twisting the remote sideways, since aiming side to side still made the gun go left to right... But from its 'own standpoint'.

Shambo commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Well, Capcom clearly has trouble with RE directing. Turning RE into an action series, for example, and not bringing REmake to Nintendo systems (while I'm certain it would work wonderful, especially on 3DS, and REmake was after all on Nintendo systems to begin with).

But making a 'Revelations 2', and not bringing it at least to 3DS, would be a downright disaster. I have both the 3DS and the Wii U version of Revelations, and sunk -no pun intended- about 200 hours in both games combined, the majority spent on the handheld original.

I still laugh every time I see those felynes and piggies. The very idea they're from that specific game... Hardcore monster slaying (or being tossed about and rear-kicked into yesteryear) and some of gaming's cutest creaturs...

@Jenraux I guess it's something like 'the grass is always greener on the other side', if that saying can be translated this literally...

I don't know... I'm a Zelda collector, but I'm not too charmed by it. Probably have plenty of unused codes here, but what if they decide to get another more impressive piece in there out of the blue, like the Luigi's Mansion 2 diorama?
