Henmii commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

"But, what I previously posted was that I don't really trust Nintendo anymore"

Nintendo did many things in a pretty short time we thought they would never do. They did day 1 dlc (Mario golf). They did free to play. They did micro-transactions. They even did 1 or 2 apps!

The thing is I could totally see Nintendo embracing micro-transaction hell, pissing all the old fans of in the process. Nintendo looooooooves easy money!
I am pretty cautious, but its to soon to go into panic-mode.



Henmii commented on Review: Metroid: Zero Mission (Wii U eShop / G...:

This is Nintendo's best remake. They took a old Nes game, and gave it awesome graphics and music, new bosses, new areas (am I right?), a new ending area, and they also removed some annoying stuff (like the constantly respawning enemies). I really have to play this game again sometime. Graphically it looks better then Fusion.



Henmii commented on Two Tribes Co-Founder Doesn't Think He Would H...:

Toki Tori 2 is a fun game, but certainly not for everyone. I still have to continue the game though. I really appreciate that there really is no handholding. Everything you have to find out for yourself, there are some really clever puzzles. The game is full of mystery.



Henmii commented on Video: New Pixels Movie Trailer Passes One Mil...:

Was that...Lord Tyrion?! So Nintendo didn't want Mario in Wreck it Ralph, but Donkey in a Sony movie?! It's happening....

No seriously, this could be fun. As for some of the human-actors, I am not sure.



Henmii commented on Exclusive: Affordable Space Adventures Pricing...:

Doesn't sound so affordable to me. When a download game is 15 Euro I mostly wait till it gets cheaper. When its over 15 I mostly won't buy it. There are so many downloads, and they are always expensive on Nintendo-devices. And I am not swimming in money, so I go more and more for the discounts!



Henmii commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

However it may sound a bit hypocritical, but even if I am against the mobile endevour, I still hope interesting mobile Nintendo games (if they will happen) will also be available on the NX (and I think they will). I don't have a mobile, yet want to experience those games (IF they are good and IF they are no micro-transaction hell).



Henmii commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

Best case scenario: Just some simple apps and games on the mobile devices to attract people to the Wii u and 3DS (and their succesors). NX being a proper new handheld/home-console.

Worst case scenario: Nintendo dumping all their games on mobile-devices, going all out on the micro-transactions. NX being a mobile/tablet-like device. Everything download only.

That's how I feel at the moment...

"Why is Nintendo life so quick to call NX a successor to Wii U. I think NX will be new dedicated handheld and the follow up to the 3DS"

Thats certainly possible. Or its a handheld and home-console in one. Either way, I fear there is some DeNa/mobile malarky involved (though its hard to imagine they go for a tablet after the Wii u failure). Could be mobile-like though. I fear everything will be download only. I did predict that before, and now with the DeNa announcement it has become even more likely. But we'll see.



Henmii commented on Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Edition Bundle La...:

I am not sure if I'll buy it. It doesn't look bad, but its just another Mario title (and just another mobile match-three game for that matter). It may sound a bit naieve, but I think buying this game could give the wrong message: Namely that you are behind Nintendo's mobile-nonsense. So yeah, I am a bit in doubt.



Henmii commented on First Screens From Banjo-Kazooie Spiritual Su...:

I am skeptical, as always. The first 2 screenshots look amazing, but I really have to see footage. Also, being a download probably means a very small game (or episodic, yuck). And if they aim to also print it on a N64 cartridge, then that means the graphics won't be nearly as nice as in those screenshots. And please no Amiibo nonsense.

Just print it on a disc and bring it to Wii u. That could potentially be great.



Henmii commented on Nintendo Set To License All IP to Mobile Publi...:

Okay, I somewhat take back what I said. Nintendo still comes with a new device and they won't dump all their games on mobile-phones all of a sudden. While I rather saw they stayed clear of mobile-phones and tablets all together, its really to soon to go into panick-mode. As some people said: Maybe its just some simple stuff to attract people to their real games, on Nintendo's own devices.

On a side-note: Wii u is definitely on the way out, and it wouldn't surprise me if Zelda u becomes a NX launch-game (getting delayed untill 2016). Well, I did get enough enjoyment out of the Wii u I guess. The Wii u wasn't (and still isn't) a great succes, so I understand they try their luck with a different console. Hopefully it works.



Henmii commented on Nintendo Set To License All IP to Mobile Publi...:

We knew it would happen eventually. The pressure from analysts/share-holders may have been to much. Those guys never pushed Microsoft/Sony to do the same though (throwing their stuff on mobile-phones).

Its far to early to say this is the end for Nintendo (after all, there is a new device coming), but this news combined with free to play malarky, Amiibo, quality of life, it all doesn't bode that well!!

At least Nintendo partnered with a Japanese company. Same culture, it could work for them.



Henmii commented on Nintendo Announces Fresh Release Details on a ...:

Never alone is a nice surprise. Hopefully it won't be to expensive.

As for Boxboy: Hmmm, the graphics are very simple but it has a unique hook sort of. I guess this is one of the "mobile-style" games Nintendo talked about. Its made by HAL, so it should be decent at the least. But whether I download it or not really depends on reviews and price!!



Henmii commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Right to Take Its Ti...:

There's nothing wrong with the e-shop, but there's something wrong with the prices of multi-platform games. If its cheap on ios or on the Sony/Microsoft shop, it should be just as cheap on Wii u.

And not only look forward, but also behind. Why not adding classics we could never play on a Nintendo console, like Limbo or Shank?!



Henmii commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

I slightly agree on the Battletoads. I can see why Battletoads fans are happy, but at the same time there won't be a NEW Battletoads game. At least not by Rareware. Rareware isn't even behind this cameo I guess. Microsoft just takes characters from Rareware and give them to others. Just as with Conker: No new Conker game, but Conker in a game-building tool! And they took Killer instinct and gave it to a seperate developer. Of course Rareware is fine with that (its probably all in their contract), since they need all their time for those mighty fine Sports games! How the mighty have fallen!

"Since there was a Shovel Knight cameo in Armillo, I always wondered why there wasn't an Armillo cameo in Shovel Knight..."

I didn't know that. But I haven't played that much Armillo yet!

As for exclusive Nintendo dlc: Starfox crew perhaps?



Henmii commented on WayForward to Celebrate 25th Anniversary With ...:

I downloaded Shantae and the pirates curse. So far I like it, and it looks very sweet. But its also very lineair and pretty easy so far (I have only finished the first island so far).

I do hope though that they will do something experimental again someday. The "Mighty" games where very unique!

As for the Shantae series: I am still not that far in the first one, but I reached the endboss in Risky's revenge recently (there are still some collectables to be found though). Very hard boss!



Henmii commented on Review: Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. (3DS):

Nice review and nice score! I liked the demo, so I might get it. Hopefully I can get it somewhere (Fire emblem Awakening was nowhere available, so I sadly had to download it from the e-shop)! So its a little bit like "League of extraordinary gentlemen", character wise! That was a fun movie, though certainly not the greatest I have seen. Oh, that was also based on a comic!



Henmii commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

Oh, and if we get something exclusive it should be free! After all Microsoft followers don't have to pay extra for the Battletoads, while Sony followers don't have to pay extra for Kratos. And I guess Microsoft and Sony followers have already to pay less for the game then we did!



Henmii commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

So they are going for the Soul Calibur approach: Different guest-stars on different consoles. Hmmm, I rather had it all! But that's not gonna happen.

Either way: If Sony and Microsoft get their exclusive guests, then we need something too. But I guess that won't happen, Nintendo gamers always get screwed!



Henmii commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Several Design Choices in...:

Spoiler: That's what I meant. It was to the right of the stairs, but now there is just a empty wall because they moved the bank to the back of the clocktower. End of spoiler.

Spoiler: Speaking of the extra bottle, it makes perfect sense because there are 7 Zora-eggs. I imagine Nintendo made it so that you could basically get them all in one run. That was one of Nintendo's goals, to remove the annoying stuff. Making it a smoother experience. End of spoiler.



Henmii commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Several Design Choices in...:


Spoiler: Yeah, one extra bottle it seems. So something extra for me to do, wich is good.

Spoiler: They gave the bank a new home, but kept the old space empty. Now there's just a empty wall. Sure they could have done something more interesting with it?



Henmii commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Developers Discuss...:

To me Rainbow curse looks pretty slow (but nice and fun all the same). Its a pity there are only 3 power-ups, but I heard they used the core-gameplay to the max. 3 isn't much, but at least people can't say "there aren't any power-ups". Well, they will say it anyway. They also said it about Epic yarn!



Henmii commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Why Tingle is Such a Pecu...:

To me Tingle always was the "drunken" version of Link. He's also dressed in green, and if he had the same face he wouldn't be that different.

I never was a big fan of him, but I never hated him either. That there are so many haters is really sad. I for one look forward to try him out in Hyrule warriors (I have the DLC, but I haven't tried it yet).
