Shiryu commented on Fire Emblem Meets Front Mission In Galaxy Robo...:

@AVahne No, those were my exact words, not just Damien's. If you watch the video, you will understand. Pu ting the battle sequences side by side with the very first "Fire Emblem" on Super Nintendo, it is very clear where the inspiration for this one came from, right down to the menu colour scheme.



Shiryu commented on Suda51 Isn't Done With No More Heroes and Trav...:

Suda51 has been one of my favorite developers all the way back when he worked on Super Famicom's "Fire Pro Wrestling" series. While "Killer 7" remains my favorite of his works, I truly loved both "No More Heroes" on the Wii, I really hope to see his work back on Nintendo platforms in the future.



Shiryu commented on Nintendo NX Might Be The First Social VR Platf...:

This would explain why Nintendo plans to keep supporting the Wii U after the NX launches. If it truly is something so "out of the box" as it is believed to be, Nintendo might keep the 3DS as their portable offering, the Wii U as their home console offering and the NX as a whole new targeted market. Time will tell I guess and for me, I rather live in the present than daydreaming of what might be in the (still) distant future.



Shiryu commented on Splatoon's Big Update is Coming on 6th August:

Can't wait! That minigun will go very nicely with the Power Armour! I am so conflicted if I should take my Wii U and recording setup away on vacations... Besides this update, Legend of Kai, Devil's Third and Disney Infinty 3.0 will all come out in Europe and I won't be able to play them on release! Vexing proposition...



Shiryu commented on Review: KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker (Wii U eShop):

@supa I think KORG considers portables the choice for software platfomr for chiptune artists. You have to admit, having a portable synth on the go is rather neat. By releasing the products on Wii U, they would be denying the most important aspect of their current offerings: instant usage anywhere.



Shiryu commented on Japanese Devil's Third Site Details Online Mod...:

So far, so good (for my need to explosions and bang bangs). I hope the micro transactions of Golden eggs won't turn the online game into a "pay-to-win" online scenario, I am sure Nintendo won't let that happen, right? RIGHT!?



Shiryu commented on E-litre 3K Scope And Neo Splash-O-Matic Headed...:

Hmm, wonder if that Scope will be a game changer for that weapon... I'm not very good using snipers, I lack the patience to effective use them preferring assault and rush tactics over point defense, but I will surely give it a try.



Shiryu commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:

There is no two ways about this: I like it. I really do! I will most certainly buy it, it scratches an itch I hardly ever get to scratch on Wii U since "Bayonetta 2" came out. Truly hope the vast amount of player customization and weaponry keeps me hooked to the online part of the game long after I am done with the single player anti-SOD campaign.



Shiryu commented on Parent Trap: Skylanders SuperChargers Dials Ni...:

@opeter You are lucky. If only I could turn back time and before buying the very first Skylanders, going "Wow, this is a really neat way to finally sell me some DLC!" and having bought every game of it's kind except Infinity (which will change when the Star Wars one hits...) I would be a much richer man... and had a lot less plastic to clean.



Shiryu commented on Review: LEGO Jurassic World (Wii U):

I can't believe my local Warner distributor has put every other version of the game in the shelves except Wii U... really feel like a second rate costumer when it comes to third party stuff for Nintendo over here in Portugal. =(
Anyway, I was expecting a higher score... so I am not so excited about getting it anymore.



Shiryu commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

Ok, I've seen the movie and... damn, I enjoyed it a heck of a lot more than I (or any sane person) probably should. It is definitely not a game for everyone, especially the main Nintendo target audience, but I it feels right at home for me. Looks like I will go home and put some more time into "Ninja Gaiden 3".



Shiryu commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

Hmm... I will still pick it up because it's the only Mature title for the Wii U in the foreseeable future so it will be a welcome addition to my collection. Nintendo needs to work more "Bayonetta 2" style games being released on my current home console of choice. So the biggest mystery continues to be the wacky online multiplayer mode... I have to admit I'm rather looking forward to that one, sure spraying Ink is fun and all, bu t so is running around with a Minigun and a katana.



Shiryu commented on Feature: Our Tributes and Memories of Satoru I...:

I lost a friend on Saturday. I have never met him and he never met me. His name was Satoru Iwata. He was not just the CEO of Nintendo, he was a nice guy who invaded my life with Nintendo Directs, goofing off along with Miyamoto and Reggie while delivering news of future Nintendo plans. Having lived trough the Yamauchi era of Nintendo, I truly felt the contrast of the Iwata ages. And I liked it. Scratch that, I still do. I like Nintendo as it is today. I will miss Iwata, and like many other people who left this world far too soon due to disease or accident, I will keep their memories and tell their tales for the others that will come ahead.



Shiryu commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

Waking up to this news was like being hit in the stomach by a meteor. My condolences to family and friends, 55 is way too young. Very sad... =(



Shiryu commented on Summer Video Game StoryBundle Features Some Aw...:

Kurt Kalata, what a guy. If not for his Castlevania website decades ago, I would not have been able to complete my Japanese import copy of "Castlevania Symphony in the Night" on PSX. All HG101 books are worthy reading material.



Shiryu commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

This is rather disturbing. In fact, I have been quite looking forward to play the game since last e3... surely Nintendo wouldn't release a broken game, right? Time will tell, but I was not expecting the guys at Unseen64 to jump on this... they are usually very reliable and I still can't shake the uneasy feeling of the game not showing up at all at e3... yep, even if I live in Euroland, I'm worried now.
