Male, 36, Costa Rica

Been gaming since I was 5. I play mostly games on Nintendo and Sony systems. I currently own 3DS, Wii, Wii U and PS3. Favorite developers include Nintendo, PlatinumGames, Naughty Dog, among others. I love games with soul and sense of humour.

sinalefa commented on Yu Suzuki Wants Physical Shenmue III PS4 Discs:

Each passing day this sounds less interesting. If this fails then we will be in the same spot again, waiting for him to finish the story.

Agreed with @Boerewors, Shenmue 3 wont be impressive by modern standards, specially with a limited budget. It will be more like a curio for people who never played the originals.



sinalefa commented on Shenmue III Stretch Goals Extend PS4, PC Seque...:

I will tell you this. I would have sold my soul for Shenmue 3 and I haven't pledged a single dime for this. So this is not even getting all the fans.

Sony should pay for this or have Yu port this to X1. Even xbox has had more Shenmue than Sony ever has and the X1 gamers could pledge too.

This will never live to its potential via KS. And yes, remaster the first two. We are in the remaster gen anyway. New people playing the old games means a surge of interest and funds too.



sinalefa commented on Sony: PlayStation TV Is Hard to Explain:

It does a lot of things, but all of them in an incomplete or poor way.

If this could play more Vita games or even more PSone games I would have gotten one.

Hard to explain, harder to sell.



sinalefa commented on Crash Bandicoot Could Have Appeared in Unchart...:

After having Crash skip PS All Stars BR, I highly doubt they are gonna do it here.

But after seeing them putting Bowser and DK in Skylanders and actually messing with the characters themselves, they could do something if enough money is involved. We are talking Activi$ion here.



sinalefa commented on Lighter, Eco-Friendly PS4 Hardware Launches Th...:

I love White PS4 so if it is common I will definitely get one.

Sony announced several games I am interested in but they won't show up until 2016 the soonest, so I can wait until they either announce this SKU or drop the price on the current one.



sinalefa commented on E3 2015: Thank Heavens Sony Didn't Change Hori...:

Very nice. I am a male but I also pick the female when given a choice. If I am taking hours seeing a character on screen, I would rather see something I like. Besides with so many male leads, it really is refreshing to see a girl.



sinalefa commented on E3 2015: You Won't Be Receiving a Retail Relea...:


I feel most of the assets need to be remade, if that terrible looking new Ryo is any indication. As has been said, the KS is like Sony needing a deposit from gamers in order to embark on this, imagine if Nintendo did that for Bayo 2?

But I will still wait and see how it ends.



sinalefa commented on Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Sales Keep Dropping...:

You guys depressed again? I would be depressed with the X1 numbers in Japan, Vita and PS4 did good enough.

And I am happy to see Splatoon's momentum. Great game on a new IP, maybe gamers really want more than Mario or Zelda from Nintendo. Also Rhythm Heaven, those games are awesome.



sinalefa commented on Reaction: Xbox's E3 2015 Attempts to Block PS4...:

To be honest, BC actually made me more interested in X1. I already have a PS3 and I missed on Gears, so I don't even need remasters to experience those games, as Sony wants us to do with GoW, Uncharted, or paying via PS Now.

For me Sony will have to do something huge today. So I hope that Shenmue 3 rumour ends up being true.



sinalefa commented on Sony: We Need to Convince PS4 Owners to Spend ...:

Don't think this is going to work. I was thinking earlier today that Nintendo tries to innovate by finding new uses for old, cheap technology while Sony prefers to innovate with expensive new technology. A lot of people tend to buy the newest, hottest toys but then again a lot of people are afraid of paying so much on something that may be a failure, so being affordable helps.

If this retails for the same price as the system itself, it won't sell. Bundles would be ridiculously expensive too.



sinalefa commented on E3 2015: Today's Crazy Rumours Include Final F...:

I care more about Shenmue than FF. Not only for the game itself, but a new game will always be preferable to a remake to me.

For the kind of graphics and details Shenmue pushed in the DC era, Quantic Dream would be a great graphics consultant.



sinalefa commented on Soapbox: Why So Many E3 2015 Announcements Are...:


I guess the fact the press always belittled Nintendo during E3 had a lot to do with it, right down to the "Direct" name. Also their kiddie, playful image help them to remind us we are here to have fun, not to be serious and "mature" about everything.



sinalefa commented on Soapbox: Why So Many E3 2015 Announcements Are...:


There is a reason why I took off work Tuesday instead of Monday. Nintendo's conference is full of games, jokes, gameplay clips and devs explaining their labours of love. Not a suit talking numbers or a PR guy demoing a game they did not make.

On the same token, having Nintendo Directs regularly relieves them from trying to cram every new game in 90 min., which leads to lulls or rushing thru titles.

And you are right. " For the bankers" is more like it IMO.



sinalefa commented on E3 2015: Platinum Games Is the Robot in Disgui...:


Thanks for the mention because I would have seen this until Monday.

And if this is their game I am not interested although I could still get the PS3 version as long as it is on disc.

Man not even having Platinum Robo as a cameo would excite me.



sinalefa commented on Rumour: A Vanquish Sequel Will Be Sliding into...:

And P* created a Metroid when they posted the Samus Bayo tweet.

No, right? I feel the same here.

About Vanquish, I loved the game and I never found it too short. Too hard, yes, and maybe that is why I felt it was longer.

But don't get me wrong, I would love a sequel. Although that was Mikami, so it could be very different now.
