Henmii commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

So there is enough single-player content? That's a relief!

"The fact that it’s also unique to your system means you don’t have to share your achievements with anyone else"

So the list of achievements is generically produced for every 3DS system? I am not sure how I feel about that. Normally I hate generically produced, but I'll see.

While I might buy it next week, I am still waiting for the definitive version: The Wii u version. That there is still no true release-date is terrible. Yeah, it was said on this site that it presumably gets released in November. But I wouldn't be surprised if we Europeans (and also Americans) get it next year!



Henmii commented on Hyrule Warriors Producer Would Love to Work Wi...:

Maybe a "Warriors" with all the Nintendo characters? But on the other hand: Didn't Nintendo find Mario wrestling to extreme (it was a canceled game called Mario Spikers)? If so, they probably wouldn't approve of this, though the times have changed.



Henmii commented on Nintendo 64x64: Banjo-Kazooie:

"And the Grunty finale? Well, she's just not Bowser"

Exccccuuuse me princess! The Gruntilda battle was MUCH better then the final Bowser battle! Not only was the final Bowser battle just a harder version of Bowser battles before, but the Gruntilda battle consisted of different phases. You even did fight her in the air. Besides, she's a much better villain then Bowser.



Henmii commented on Animal Crossing Content Is Coming To Monster H...:

"They're simply desperate to make a few extra quick and easy bucks from licensing out their hugely popular characters and franchises because right now they're desperate to see a financial report that's in the black for the first time in ages"

I agree. The reason why we see Nintendo characters everywhere all of a sudden is just to boost sales. Animal crossing stuff is in Monster hunter, so Animal crossing will sell better (though it already sells a lot). There is Zelda dlc in Sonic Lost world, so that there will be more awareness for the Zelda franchise, etc. The same can be said for the Smash brothers titles: As much as we like them, they are Nintendo marketing tools.

The point is: Does this approach keep interesting? I mean, if every third-party game from now on will have Animal crossing dlc, are the fans still willing to download it?

"These crossovers aren't for Nintendo's sake, they're for the 3rd parties' sake"

Well, probably for both. Nintendo can promote their franchises this way. But at the same time the third-party franchises get more awareness, since many people won't glance at a third-party title unless Mario is in it.



Henmii commented on Immediate DLC Reinforcements Arriving Soon On ...:

For 15 Euro you get the Hero pack. It supposedly a season pass, since stuff gets available over the coming months.

15 Euro sounds much, but for that money you not only get extra characters but also extra maps. Hmm, I am not sure if I'll buy it. If it stays at this (1 season pack), I might go for it.



Henmii commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

"This sentiment carries over to the music, which is made up of classic Zelda tunes which have been mercilessly butchered by Omega Force's in-house musicians"

That's what I feared from the little that I heared. Either way, I'll buy it. I expected a 8 though, but I guess the reviewer chose a 7 because of the lack of polish.



Henmii commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

"According to Sakurai-san, a solution to this problem wasn’t a priority either due to there being no real reason to promote the Ice Climbers – as there are no planned announcements or instalments for this particular series any time soon"

Sounds pretty harsh, and doesn't bode well for future instalments. Who else will get the cut in the future? Starfox, Samus, Captain Falcon?!

By the way this confirms what I already feared: The 3DS version is keeping the whole experience down. That's probably also the reason why there are no transformations this time either (for example: Zelda and Sheik got split). They just should have focused on one, fantastic title. A Wii u smash brothers.



Henmii commented on Feature: Meet The Playable Cast Of Hyrule Warr...:

I chose Darunia, but Ganondorf is also awesome. The weakest of the bunch may be Fi.


They obviously chose Oot, Twilight princess and Skyward sword as their influence. Basically the console games that starred grown-up Link. But I can imagine a sequel where they go all out on the franchise, if it sells good enough. From what I heard, it sold pretty good in Japan.



Henmii commented on Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop):

Looks and sounds great. I'll definitely download it someday when it gets cheaper (or I buy it at Retail, when that happens). Its also cool that Dutch is supported. I am a dutchman.



Henmii commented on Dahku Creations Announces Departure From Game ...:

A pity that they couldn't keep their head above water. But there is ios hate for a reason: Many times we saw ios games on a Nintendo-device AT A MUCH HIGHER PRICE! That's what annoys people! If a game is 99 cent on ios, it should cost 99 cent on a Nintendo device!



Henmii commented on Interview: Eiji Aonuma and Yosuke Hayashi on H...:

But one of the things that leaves me with rather complicated feelings is that "people are saying, “Oh wow, I really love the cutscenes in this game! This is better than the stuff Nintendo does!” Of course, that leaves me a little conflicted, and gives me a mission now to make sure that the new Zelda game that I’m working on can hold its own in that aspect against Hyrule Warriors!"

Lets see what they will cook up!



Henmii commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:

Sometimes people say that Sega died because of all the peripherals. I feel like Nintendo is going the same way: All the different controllers, voice-chat peripheral for Animal crossing, circle pad pro, etc. The masses do find that VERY confusing, and I can't blame them!



Henmii commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (Europe):

Mario pinball it will be. Teslagrad goes on the list (waiting for a discount, and the Nintendolife review).

As for Alttp: Seeing as this is the snes-version, does that mean it has the unaltered ice-palace? Because my gba version has a ice-palace that has been slightly changed. If this version has the unaltered ice-palace, I might download.



Henmii commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Flipped The Tea Table with Hy...:

Sounds like Miyamoto did upend another wrong table! I would have loved some puzzles in it, but this doesn't seem the case. On the other hand, I guess they didn't want to make a game that was to similar. Otherwise it would defeat its purpose a bit. Ah well, I try it out for myself. But while I love all the characters and wild moves, I fear it will get repetitive rather quickly. Especially if there are no puzzles around. I love the puzzles. Also: I don't think I'll will be a great fan of the cheap rock-music either.



Henmii commented on Bayonetta 2 Casting Its Spell In Europe On Oct...:

I ordered Bayonetta 2 (including Bayonetta). I guess that's the 2 discs, one box version (without the artbook)? I am okay with that.

"Also, I gotta agree with a few of you on here. I cannot stand the huge ratings labels on the cases. Really bugs me!"

Me too! The labels really do ruin those limited editions! Why oh why must Germany have its own rating-system? Helllooo, there is PEGI!!



Henmii commented on All-Star Mode in Super Smash Bros. is a Histor...:

I am confused: So you can unlock every character one after another, but it gets harder the further you get? And when you die you have to start from the beginning, but can keep all the characters you unlocked thus far? Am I right?
