Male, 22, Germany

Started playing video games at the age of 6 with Pokemon Blue. GameCube is my favourite gaming console so far. However, the Wii U is shaping up to be a wonderful system aswell. In fact, some of my favourite games are on Wii U like Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Hyrule Warriors and DKCTF

MajinSoul commented on It All Gets Crazy in This Devil's Third Launch...:

Weird situation for me. On the one hand, I don't care about shooter single player campaigns. However, knowing that the multiplayer will be dead on the Wii U (just look at Bayonetta 2, there are 1 or 2 people online at max ...), I might not buy it for the Wii U at all. On the other hand. the multiplayer is coming to PC for free so I might just play that



MajinSoul commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

Meh, I'll buy this game once it's less than 10 bucks on a steam sale in a few months/years ... which is more than I'm personally willing to give to the devs since they are lying scammers. I'm interested in the game though.



MajinSoul commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

Once I have the money I'll definitely buy it. The artstyle is such a vast improvement to SnS1 and it looks like the gameplay and content has been improved aswell. I'm so looking forward to it. I don't mind paying full price for quality games.



MajinSoul commented on Weirdness: Nintendo of America's Splatoon Mess...:

Complaining about prices now? oh god. Here in Germany Splatoon costs 40 €, while Witcher 3 on PS4/XOne costs 70 €. I could almost buy Splatoon twice for one copy of Witcher 3. But of course Nintendo is the one with the increased gaming prices on their system ...



MajinSoul commented on Nintendo UK Releases Wii U Sizzle Reel and Wan...:

Oh god, this is a tough one between Bayonetta 2 and Wonderful 101. While Bayonetta 2 is the most perfect action game I've ever played, I'll still pick Wonderful 101. This game had fantastic gameplay, amazing visuals, tons of humor and was a really unique and new IP. So yeah, there goes my vote.



MajinSoul commented on ​Talking Point: Is Konami About To Exit The ...:

So no more "new Metal Gear/Castlevania game announced - not coming to Nintendo's platform"? My, I'm truly sorry.

On a serious note, some of the older Castlevania games (talking about SNES) are actually good. Other than that the only Metal Gear game I actually liked was Metal Gear Rising Revengeance and that was oddly enough developed by Platinum Games iirc. I'll miss the Yugioh games though. I've so many fond memories of the GBA/DS ones.



MajinSoul commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

Claiming that going 3rd party actually helps Nintendo makes me laugh. Seriously, look at the sales numbers of the games that sell on PS4/XOne. The games that sell are all gritty shooters and sports games and generally mature rated games. Heck, just watch a Nintendo video on youtube and I swear that you'll find comments like "look at those kiddy games" from those mature gamers. There simply is no audience for Nintendo games on those consoles.
Also, just trying to imagine a future without Nintendo as a hardware manufacturer makes me shudder. You'll see a generation of consoles with even less differences as already is between XOne and PS4. Nintendo might suck at being up-to-date with hardware (which Xone and PS4 are aswell, but who cares obviously) but at least they try to offer new ways of gameplay. Although this has severly backfired this time. Nintendo just needs to make the hardware as similar as possible to Sony's and Microsoft's so that there are no more excuses for devs to be made while still trying to offer something new.



MajinSoul commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

This is nothing of surprise and the only logical step for CoD to do. This vicious circle of 3rd party vs Wii U customer cannot be solved thus the only way it out is ... well taking the exit and abondoning WiiU (maybe Nintendo altogether). These games just don't sell and nobody is to blame. Why would anybody buy a inferior, unoptimized, non-post-launch-supported and probably delayed version of games? On the other hand, why would any dev spend the time and resources to optimize it's port just for it to not sell in the end anyway? So who's wrong? Sure, the consumer could buy those games "just to support" 3rd parties, but that would send the message "they'll buy any crap we give them, why would we put more effort into these?". On the other hand, 3rd parties could try to put more effort into these ports to improve their image among Wii U owners. But they are a business after all, I'm sure this isn't worth it.

On the topic of CoD not coming to WiiU: I don't care. It's coming to PC and I don't care there aswell. My first CoD was Black Ops on PS3. I then bought MW3, Blops2 and Ghosts all on Day One. The games became worse with every new entry. Ghosts is the first video game in my 16 years of gaming that I regretted spending money on. I'll just wait for Titanfall 2 to come. I'm done with CoD. Heck, I'd gladly trade Blops 2 and Ghosts on Wii U for actually good games like Witcher 2 and Dark Souls. These are the 3rd party games I'd love to see on Wii U. Oh well, I'm glad that I have a gaming PC besides my Wii U.



MajinSoul commented on Gallery: Get Hot Under the Collar in the Conti...:

@TheRealThanos @triforcepower73 I've already watched AoT, the first season that is. I was siding with the Titans so I didn't mind the smiles
Now that you mentioned it, I really hope the soundtrack of XCX will be purchasable in the west. I already listend to a few tracks on youtube and it sounds amazing.

@abbyhitter Derrick of GameXplain has already confirmed to stream the game on Twitch on April 28th (US time). I'm pretty sure that he'll upload a good chunk of it on Youtube. I'm with you on this, gotta stay away from GameXplain for a quite a while (unfortunately)



MajinSoul commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Problems With Trends and...:

To call the youtube program anti-consumer friendly is wrong imo. In what way does this affect a consumer? You can still go to the store, buy the game and play it just fine. The problem arises if you're trying to monetize the game. But if you're working as a youtuber, you should be treated as such: a worker, not a customer. That being said: I think the share is too high. You have to consider what goes into making a video (with commentary!): buying the game, recording the gameplay, editing the gameplay and recording your commentary. Nintendo's share should thus be 25% at max.

Honestly though, I don't think that the "youtube drama" is hurting Nintendo at all (in terms of sales, the image is getting damaged every day anyway, this isn't anything special). Nintendo has struggled to sell games on Wii U before they released this program and they will still continue to do so in the future. What good is it that people see the quality of your games if nobody buys them anyway? The only ones profiting of these videos are the uploaders.

On another note: everytime I want to gather information about a game I'm interested in, I don't search for a youtuber but for the game. For example: Endless Legends was on sale last weekend and I was interested in the game. So I went on youtube and entered "endless legends gameplay" in the search bar. Yes, I searched for the game and not something like "pewdiepie endless legends" or "angryjoe endless legends". There will always be someone who is covering games without the need to monetize them. Keep that in mind.

@Sinister Well, you are right that the commentary is essential. That's the reason there are channels with hundreds of thousands of subscribers and the ones with less than a hundred. However, it's not solely the commentary that is interesting in a let's play. I for one only watch LP's about games I've already played and enjoyed. For example: ChuggaaConroy is one of my favourite youtubers. However, I still didn't watch his Animal Crossing New Leaf LP since I don't like the game. If I just wanted to listen to commentary I'd listen to a podcast instead (which I often do).

@Hy8ogen I completely agree. Especially considering a lot of reviewers use gameplay videos provided by Nintendo themselves.

Anyway, I'm going to play some video games. I always wonder why people pay so much attention to this stuff instead of playing actual games.



MajinSoul commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Devours 1 Million Pl...:

I bought both, MH3U for Wii U and MH3U for 3DS, day one. I couldn't stand running with the circle pad and the lack of an analog stick for camera movement on the 3DS. Thus I didn't buy MH4U, which is sad since I'm still playing MH3U on WiiU to this date. I don't get why they don't consider porting it to home consoles. Shouldn't be that expensive to do so.

That being said, I watch a lot of MH4U gameplay/Let's plays/podcasts on youtube and the game looks tons of fun. It deservs those sale numbers.



MajinSoul commented on Akihiro Hino on Why Fantasy Life 2 is Not Comi...:

Read: the next installment will be free 2 play in order to compete with other games on iOS. They want to give people the opportunity to enhance their experience by offering extra content that can be purchased with real world money. It is easier to do is if you posses a credit card which a lot of adults do.

Anyway, I couldn't care less, but I hate all this PR BS.



MajinSoul commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

@PlywoodStick Yeah, CD Project Red are easily my favourite Devs in terms of customer treatment. They got rid of the DRM on Witcher 2, gave everyone who bought the standard edition a free upgrade to the enhanced edition and the DLC was free in general. And they announced that the DLC for Witcher 3 will be for free again.



MajinSoul commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

@Kaze_Memaryu Hyrule Warriors did not have on Disk DLC but Update DLC. Please give me a valid source for your claim. You're also complaining about the Mario Kart 8 DLC which I can't understand. It's one of the best and fairest DLC I've ever seen. Pikmin 3's DLC was overpriced if you ask me. It offered almost nothing. I agree on FE:A though. This is DLC done wrong. I'd even call it overpriced junk. Can't comment on Animal Crossing since I don't know anything about it's DLC.

As to SSB4: I know that it's not easy to design and balance characters in a fighting game, but Mewtwo is just a returning character. He even has the same moveset from Melee. I'm not too sure if this price is justified. For the costumes it isn't anyway, but they are just cosmetics which I definetly won't buy.

Anyway, I think it's good that Nintendo is experimenting with DLC, although they still have to improve a lot in that area. However, if Nintendo ever goes the Microtransactions-in-a-retail-game-route I'll stop buying their games. Just as I did with EA and Ubisoft. This is the worst offender someone can do imo.

As to Amiibos: I think they have to treat this carefully. I haven't played Mario Party 10, but I read that you can unlock a game mode with them. If that's the case I don't want any of that. I think they should be mainly used for the likes of costumes. Like using a Shulk costume by using a Shulk amiibo in Fire Emblem or XCX. I don't know why people need justification to purchase Amiibos. I bought a Samus, Link and Marth Amiibo, but not because I wanted to use them in a game, but because I love those characters and they look great. I'd rather prefer them having less impact on game content than locking gameplay content behind them.

On a side note: DLC is optional, especially in non story-heavy games (which almost all Nintendo games are). If you buy those costumes + Mewtwo you're roughly paying 15 € which is about the cost of some amazing Indie titles such as Shovel Knight, Stealth Inc. 2 and Don't Starve (I'm pretty sure it'll settle for this price). Just my 2 cents.



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

Just make Zelda a playable character after beating the game. Switch roles for Link and Zelda during cutscenes. It doesn't have to make sense story wise. The gender hasn't been relevant anyway. But for the love of god: don't change the gender of an 30 year old gaming character just because. It's stupid.

On a side note: I'd actually love to play as Zelda. She's my favourite character in Hyrule Warriors. Imo it's a female character done right.



MajinSoul commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

I think this isn't as black and white as people make it out to be. People always talk about "free advertising". But advertising for what? If this advertisement worked, the WiiU would be selling a lot more than it currently does. (yes, almost every video is about how much fun the player is having with a Nintendo game). This is 2015. The ones that don't know about the Nintendo quality aren't the ones that watch this free advertisement. It's a shame that youtube has become a job platform rather than a section of the internet where gamers upload interesting videos for gamers. It's all about the money nowaday. The worst example is this: "Taking it further, EA even has the Ronku program that pays YouTubers extra as an incentive to cover their games.". Any self-respecting gamer shouldn't take money from EA or advertise their games.



MajinSoul commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Flirtation With Micr...:

It's worrysome, not gonna lie. On the one hand, they are doing a fantastic job with MK8's DLC. On the other hand, the abomination called Pokemon Shuffle should have never seen the light of the day. This is something that can seriously harm the image of Nintendo and it's IPs.



MajinSoul commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

I haven't played Smash 3DS (though I did play the Demo and the it felt horrible with the circle pad on a normal 3DS).
Between the rest of them: Objectively I'd have to go with Smash U since it has the best roster, music, stages, soundtrack and all around content. But I have so many fond memories of me playing Melee with a friend of mine on a daily basis. It was so much fun, I just have to go with Melee.



MajinSoul commented on Video: The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon Ever:

Terrible video. It is one thing to make a list about his personal favourites, but another to call something "the worst design" adding an "ever" at the end to imply that his "opinion" is fact. Let's not even talk about his reasons. I mean come on .... spoons? lower part looks like an arse? gosh ...



MajinSoul commented on Bayonetta 2 Demo Now Live In The European Wii ...:

Just finished the Demo. Fantastic. Freaking fantastic. The enemy design is amazing, the gameplay is fun, the game runs smoothe without fps drops and the music is wonderful aswell. The only thing I don't like is that the Gamepad is used to stream the image of the TV. I know that there is not much use of a second screen in an action game, but I'd rather have the Gamepad screen be turned off (like in DKCTF) than wasting the battery of the Gamepad. It's funny though. The Demo only covers the prolgue, but it's filled with epic Boss fights already. They didn't lie about the non-stop climax. I'm really looking forward to the full game



MajinSoul commented on Review: The Keep (3DS eShop):

iirc there is a Wii U version planned, right? This game looks really good but if there is a Wii U version on the way I'd rather hold out for that one.



MajinSoul commented on Hyrule Warriors Horses Around with Epona in Ma...:

@RainbowGazelle Sorry, thought that most of the people already knew that, since the game released a month ago in Japan. I edited my post though and I hope I didn't take away from your experience

@BensonUii As far as I know these are the only packs that are included in the season pass: Master Quest Pack, Twilight Princess Pack, Majora's Mask Pack and Boss Pack. Wether the costumes are included or not, hasn't been confirmed yet. But I doubt that they are included.



MajinSoul commented on Hyrule Warriors Horses Around with Epona in Ma...:

@BensonUii You get the Ganondorf costumes by registering the game between September the 19th and October the 17th in Club Nintendo. All the other costumes are preorder costumes and can be bought in the eshop in the future.

On topic: Awesome, I just hope that Epona doesn't play as slow as some of the other characters. But given that Epona is a horse this shouldn't be a problem
