Loving Zelda and Mario games :D

Male, 23, Germany

I grew up with Nintendo but tried other consoles to, but I'm really not into FPS Games like COD, so~ ... more like platformers, strategygames or nearly everything else :D. I like Sports, Chemistry and eating too, but I really am not fat or anything! ^^

They really have to get their sh*t together .....
Nintendo has to have more western studios under their belt, Japanese nationalism or not, they need to be more diverse and I'm not only saying this because of this article .... They make good games, yes. But they have not enough studios making games for 3 platforms (HH, HC and Mobile) and they need to make games literally for everyone. Whit this I don't mean rated E games, but games that appeal to kids, other games that appeal to older gamers and other games that appeal to the "mature" or "sports" crowd ..... They can't ignore these crowds, because they are gigantic at the moment ...

Josaku commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

@khaosklub
first off, Prime 3 was not the last metroid game released ... this honor goes to other M which wasn't as bad as everybody makes it seem to be.
secondly, I can understand why Nintendo is so cautiouse when it comes to Metroid .... there was just one metroid game that sold over 2 million copys ... the first prime game .... the other two didn't even manage to move that much on the Wii, a console with more than 100million units sold ...
Just for the record, Galaxy sold over 11 million copys (I know it's a bigger IP, but the complaining about spin offs is nearly non existent)

So for Nintendo to try something new with the Metroid franchise to expand on the Lore and to expand the franchises reach on the market seems to me like a brilliant move, especially because federation force is a spin off title, that (let's be honest) will most likely be a really good game.

I really don't understand how one can be so blockheaded ...
It's a new Metroid game, yes. And it's a spin-off title ..... so why all the rage? It's just a Spin-off title, not the main line of games .... I really don't get the Metroid-Fanbase ....

Josaku commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

I really hope that this manifests into actuall games after launche from 3rd partys AND some kind of interaction between Nintendo's hardware-department and 3rd partys.

To be honest, I would like to see Nintendo make a somewhat standard console with specs slightly higher than the PS4 with a totally new concept of an OS. One that binds every piece of hardware running it to one marketplace, one software library and one community. Scaling visuals up and down depending on the power of the hardware and making a transition from one gen to another a thing of the past by standardising the architecture and the OS, both of which will only be updated, but not replaced.
This would mean, that new hardware inside these standardised lines could run every game of the older hardware.

But I really don't know how easy/hard this would be to be honest.

Interesting for them to releas this on the VC while they have the 3D version (which is superior in nearly every way) on the 3DS .... are they now trying to cut their own sales with their own software or are they just not that invested in what happens to the VC?
I would rather see more games in general that are a biot more obscure on tthe VC .....

Josaku commented on Rumour: Could Female Link Be In Hyrule Warrior...:

I hope not ....
Why is it, that ever male character needs to be gender swapped nowadays?
I prefer male Link and it worked for so many years with him being male, so why change that?
I know that I will get the question "His gender dosn't matter either way because he is a dofferent reincarnation of the Hero every time, so why not make him female in the next game?"
My awnser to that would be:
"If it really dosn't matter why not leave Link like he is at the moment? Secondly, he may be a different reincarnation of the old hero and technically a different person in nearly every new Zelda game, but all in all he is the same character every time isn't he? It's always Link either way ....
If you really wanted a female character in a mainline Zelda game, why not use Zelda herselfe?"

Josaku commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Suffers Major Problem...:

I hope that they see this as a sing to upgrade their servers, because I think, that the Servers would be even worse off after launche ....
I think, that even more people than the mass that tried to play last night want to play it after launch, so their servers would be massivly overused and couldn't keep up as they are now.

I know that Nintendo is kinda slow when it comes to stuff like this, but they have 5 days left to ramp up their Servers-recourses and power and they really need to do this.

@BlueBlurIxM
Sorry for my wording in the first post ..... I'm not that well versed in the english language and noticed too late that it could be misunderstood easaly .... ^^"

On the topic of the "bundle", I got the receipt because I paid it as I pre-ordered it and it says that the bundle comes with these 2 other amiibos seperatly .... I don't think, that they are making any profit off of it, but it was a special offer for long time customers and seems to be limited to 20 items, because I got "Pack 12/20" ....
I will wait and see how this turns out, but the receipt is rather specific about all of this ^^"

@BlueBlurIxM @outburst
I was reffering to a "special-offer" at the "Sparks-Gaming"-store (An somewhat independent game-store) near me, they sold the Amiibo-Bundle (Game + green squid amiibo) and you got the other 2 (squidgilr/squidboy) too if you were a longtime customer at this very store.
I go there for nearly everything I buy in terms of games, so the shopkeeper kinda knew, that I wanted all 3 items ^^"

I really enjoyed Guitar Hero 5 on the Xbox360 and I had no problem with the 5 button layout .... I kinda wish that the new guitah had 2 rows of 5 instead of 2 rows of 3, so they could gain additional space upwards (skillwise) ....
I really hope, that the pricing for DLC is right and the Tracklist is awesome, if this isn't the case, then no Guitar Heroe for me I guess ^^"

They could just expand their Studios to make more DLC AND more new releases .... just saying ...
Retro Studios, Monolith Soft nee at least 2 full sized teams .....
A new EAD team that focuses on DLC could be an idea too. This team would work together with the team that made the core game, to ensure consisten quality.
New EAD teams in generel for mobile, handheld and homeconsole would be great, so they can take more risks while producing these "safe bets".

@jariw
I know that Baby Park had 7 laps in DD, but I don't think that it makes that much of a difference ...
it will be pretty chaotic, but I think, that only shells and mayby bombs will be dangerous because everything else can be destroyed by the shells and they will be the most used item on this track ...
so it comes down to who has the most shells or the most items that can destroy shells .... so the first won't be any danger at all compared to the last .... yes, better balancing than most other tracks, but at the expense of an interesting trackdesing ... I really don't think, that this is woth it

@PinkSpider
I really don't think so, because the spinturbo mechanic dosn't change your angle and you don't even loose controll while spinning ... the only thing it dose is give you a slight boost and change you position relative to the sidelines.

And I too think, that bananas won't be a problem in any way, because there will be too many shells for them to be a real hinderence ...
Shells on the other hand could be dangerouse ... If there wasn't the "3 shell" or "3 banana" item .....

And if it's impossible to throw bombs ofer the middle line they too are not that much of a problem, because you can't surprise others with them by using the middle-line and you can't really throw them because the track is so short .... but they will walk after they are placed which will make them kind of dangerouse to be honest ...

I really don't see, why this is a fan favorite even without the special items from double dash ....

@Rob_mc_1
That's too something I'm concerned about this track .... as I said earlyer, the special items were the opnly thing saving this track and MK8 dosn't have those ...
I really can't immagine, that this track will be fun for more than 3 laps .... especially in 200cc

Josaku commented on Marvel at the Launch Trailer, Live Music and T...:

Baby Park isn't chaotic though ... it's just an oval with sidebars in the middle so that those pesky items can't go everywhere ....
This trak wasn't really good to begin with ... way to simple .... the only thing that saved this track were the special items in double dash, which made nearly every track really hectic .... MK8 dosn't have this (and I'm really thankfull for the actual balancing of the items, although it's really hard to get good items in 2nd place) .... So Baby Park in MK8 is just ... a bland oval without anything to thand out ....

Josaku commented on Video: Donkey Kong 64 Tumbles Onto Wii U Virtu...:

This game is one of my least favorite games ever ....
Got it during the N64 era short after it released .... after playing what felt like millions of hours and collecting as much as I could take I just gave this game away, because I couldn't stand it any more ....
This game combined every flaw the collect-athon genre could possibly have under one title and made it nearly impossible for me to even like this game.
for me this game's title should be "backtracking the game" instead of "DK64".
This game made me despice backtracking in it's entirety and I blame Rare with their drive for giant levels for it, they forgot to make the levels fun to explore while making them large.

On the other hand, I liked the charm of the game and the story was somewhat good tbh. The soundtrack was interesting and made it easyer to tollerate some of its unbearable flaws.

I would much rather Nintendo would focus on actually good N64 titles or titles that were extremely niche when they hit the market, just to broaden the VC-landscape.
But overall, I think it's a good thing, that the N64 VC finally arrived and that games are actually coming to it in the future ... I'm pumped for Paper Mario 64 ^^

Josaku commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

Although Link is a blank character so you, the player, can fit in everything you need to, he was always portrait as a male character and was established that way. The whole Zelda Universe is formed around Link being a male character and Zelda being the Princess.
So why not make a game starring Zelda as the lead character? ...

Making Link female dosn't bother me that much, but I really don't understand, why a male character has to be made a woman instead of either creating a new character that just is a woman or using Zelda instead .... Changing the gender of a character is a bad move in generell imo and we all saw how fans can react to it when Thor was made a femal (an insanely dumb move imho) just to appease to some fans ...

All in all I seem to hope, that Link remains a male character .... I have nothing against female leads, but I want them to be original, understandable and mostly fitting ... nut just a male character made into a female one, this is just sad and shows that not much though/creativity went into the character itself, so that IT'S GENDER is the most important part of it, this should NEVER be the case in ANY character in videogame/films/books in generell ...
But that's just my opinion I guess ....

If they will be developing the smartphonegames themselfs, they NEED to increase the Number of Studios under their belt ...
create 4 new Studios, 2 for Smartphonegames and 2 for consolegames ... 1 WiiU and 1 3DS. Make shure EVERYBODY and their dog knows what the creation of these studios is about and I think nobody will say a word ...
Deviding already existing studios is not the way to go here ... they need to increase their workforce and not further split it appart.

Josaku commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

I personally don't know how I feel about this ,.... it could be a great thing for Nintendo and the consumer, but they could fall to their death if they do it wrong ...
The fusion concept in itself is nowhere near as rosy as some make it out to be and if they opt for the wrong things this device could be done before it even hit the market ...
If they create 2 seprate devices with one OS/architecture and different specs they will kill one of their consoles by making their librarys exactly the same.
If they make a handheld with a docking port they could brick this device by using the wrong kind of conector or using one that is too slow or even make it highly unpractical if it requires a great ammount of time to get it inside/out of the dock.
If they go with one device which trys to be both, they will end up with something to big for a handheld and to weak for a homconsole.

All I'm saying here is, that Nintendo HAS to nail this concept without makiing any errors or else this thing will fail horribly and I really don't want to see this .... I hate purchasing 2 consoles just to play all the Nintendogames I like (cause dem moneys being so rare), so this concept naturally pleases me .... I'm just a little bit scared for Nintendo's well being ^^"

@LazerPan
The point of the new device is not clear as of jet so nobody knows if the next "defining feature" will be cross platform compatability like the "Fusion concept" mentions. But I actually hope that they create a crossplatform device for smartphone and handhelds with their homconsoles being somewhat seperate when it comes to their actuall gameslibrary.
As for a userbased accountsystem .. yes, this could have been done with a slew of updates and a Nintendo Direct on how to actually migrate from NNID to this new account system.

Josaku commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

@outburst
there is nothing to be sorry about mate ^^
while I can see why the fusion concept is interesting, I really hope that Nintendo dosen't try doing it ...
this would result in arkward hardware either way you put it.
The dock is a good idea ... at first glance ...
they would have to create a port for the handheld so it can transfer data and actually be upscaled properly. This port would have to be extremely sturdy and manage to have a really high transfer rate, because it not only has to transfer data like savegames or gamedata, but it hase to actually make a synchronized bridge between the HH CPU/RAM and the docks CPU/GPU/RAM. This needs really high transfer speeds and would essentially be just like the N64 but with the HH playing the role of the cartridge.
I don't think that they would just make the HH turn off during console mode and letting the dock do all the work, because this would be a waste of computing power and internal storage and Nintendo isn't really fond of wasting anything, as we saw with the whole "no charger included with the New 3DS"

That said, I really hope that they try and make the HH crossplatform with smartphones to capture this market more effectivly and giving them the option to enter the hardware race in the smartphone industry, while making the HC compatible with their HH/smartphones through the OS.

Josaku commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

@LazerPan
I think you'r exeggerating a bit here ...
as you said, the NX could stand for next generation or X platform ...
At this point it is extremely viable for them to make a handheld/smartphone hybrid and a dedicated homeconsole which are compatiple to a certain degree like the PSVita/PS4.

The New 3DS was a system revision, not a major update, just like the DSi was for the DS or the GBcolor for the gameboy ... when each of these hit the market everybody knew the next gen handheld was just a matter of time and it came in most cases 2 years after the release of the updateed version.

So when they said, that they will talk about NX in 2016 they actually meant "talk about" it not reveal it or release it.
I think, that the NX will be something along the fusion concept, but it will include smartphones and handhelds instead of homconsoles/HH. This way they can build a userbase on android/iOS and expand on this userbase on HH/HC. If they create a "eshop" which is accessible on every device they can also start advertising on it for every device they sell/every game they sell.
