Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is nearly done

8:00 AM on 12.31.2013 // Chris Carter


If you haven't heard, there are three Shantae projects in the works by WayForward -- two new original games, and a PC port of Risky's Revenge. One of those new games, Pirate's Curse, is set to his the 3DS at some point, and according to their Kickstarter, it's "nearing the finish line." We've been waiting a while for this one, so that's good news.

Elsewhere, Risky's Revenge is a go for Steam, and apparently this will be a "Director's Cut" of the game, taking the "best parts" of the original game and bits of the iOS version to make it the "best version yet." The other new game, Half-Genie Hero (which will arrive on just about every platform ever), is still in production, and is moving along "nicely."

Shantae is WayForward's bread and butter, quality wise, and it seems to be what they do best. I can't wait to try out Pirate's Curse.

No more heroes. Wii or PS3 version?

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

If you stop to think about it, Thanksgiving is basically #Darksiders2: The Holiday.

Hoping more character customization options come of the next Smash-centric Nintendo Direct. Playing as Wrong-Hair, Wrong-Face Robin feels weird. Female Robin Amiibo, too. And let 3DS users download the whole OST. My wishes are reasonable, I think.

Threshold's last album, For the Journey is so goddamn solid. Progressive metal at it's finest.

If you're looking for some epic metal you should most certainly look to power metal. If there was truly a genre to describe as epic, it's that one. Theatre of Tragedy is oldschool, if you want something similar look into Tristania.

Community Question: With Hideki Kamiya asking fans which Capcom franchise that he created they would like to see him make a sequel to, what is another series you would like to see its original creator return to and take over the reins?

Valkyria: Azure Revolution will have permadeath. Y-yay?

Mom tells me not to ask for nothing for Christmas again. Etrian Odyssey 4, Untold 1, and Etrian Mystery Dungeon it is then. My wife and I are already antisocial as is, I think this may be the final step to becoming a full blown hermit.

Hm...One of my blog posts disappeared. It says (HIDDEN) in the blog manager, but I can't seem to get it live. What's up?

This is gothic metal and I don't want to know what she's singing because it's epic AF. Yep, I'm ignoring the lyrics altogether. Not gonna peek at all. [youtube][/youtube]

Started a new game in Persona 4 Golden after finishing Dancing All Night(which probably was inevitable) and man, that game really needs a "Skip to actual gameplay" function.
