MajinSoul commented on Teslagrad Artist Makes a Cheeky Addition to Ni...:

Does someone know what's displayed on the gamepad? I'm currently playing Child of Light and I hate that they simply stream the TV on the gamepad. There's no use in having the same screen twice. Even simple menu options, a map or inventory on the gamepad are enough for me.



MajinSoul commented on Ubisoft's Latest UK Release Schedule Still Sho...:

@C-Olimar I'd hardly call Super Mario 3D World a rehash, but if you refered to New Super Mario Bros U I'd completly agree with you.
To those games mentioned by you: I played all of them except Injustice and Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Deus Ex HR is an amazing game, yet it was ported to WiiU 2 YEARS after it was released on other platforms. You could get it for less than 10 bucks on other platforms while you had to pay 40 on the WiiU. That is if you hadn't already played it before.

NFSMW was a pretty good port and I tried to purchase it, but it still costs over 60 € where I live. Again, you can purchase it for less than 20 € on other platforms.

SC Blacklist I got for free when I bought a GTX 780 in a promotion. It's a terrible game in my opinion and it lacks offline co-op on the WiiU. Why would you buy an inferior version?

The Wonderful 101 is truly a disaster. It's one of the best action games out there and noone but Nintendo and Nintendo fans are to blame for the low sale numbers.

Darksiders 2 is awful compared to Darksiders 1, which Wii U owners never got to play. Of course the game is more likely to sell on platforms that already had the first title. It runs terrible with constant tearing and framerate drops. It also released 3 months later than on other platforms.

It took almost an entire year for Ninja Gaiden 3 to come to the WiiU. As with every third party game, the game was available for less than 20€ on other platforms at this point. This is something I see happening with Indie games right now. Look at games like Steam World Dig and Guacamelee. They release at full price in the eShop, while they were on Steam Sale multiple times for less than 5 €.

You see, most of the games that got ported over came way too late (DE:HR), weren't optimized, didn't have the prequels on the WiiU (Darksiders 2, Mass Effect 3, ...) or are just way more expensive than on any other platform (NFSMW).



MajinSoul commented on Ubisoft's Latest UK Release Schedule Still Sho...:

@C-Olimar "The Wii U is owned by Nintendo fans reluctant to try new experiences." Yes, Nintendo fans are reluctant to try all those new experiences like CoD 911, Assassins Creed X or Fifa 2kXX. Sorry, but most of the games 3rd parties are offering are just annual releases with little to none improvement. Of course, we're refusing all this new stuff...



MajinSoul commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

I finished RE:R on WiiU last saturday and it was a pretty decent game. The gamepad was utilized pretty well, too. To me this just proves that Capcom gives 0 fu**s about their fans. They're only in for the money. They abandoned the Vita when the 3DS started to shine and now they're doing the same with the WiiU and PS4/XO.

@Shadowflash The difference is that Bayonetta 2 was declined by both, Sony AND Microsoft, and it wouldn't even exist without Nintendo's funding. RE:R on the other hand wouldn't have been ported to PS3/360 if the 3DS version hadn't sold extremely well.



MajinSoul commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Nintendo DS, DS lite, DSi, DS XL, 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, 3DS LL .. sorry, but that's just stupid. I start to understand some of those frustrated reviews that are complaining that their "Gameboy" cannot play a certain game. Nintendo should stop releasing newer versions of an old handheld.

Anywho, the 3DS LL looks pretty neat, and I'd buy it if I didn't already own a 3DS, but I'd never trade my ambassador-one in.



MajinSoul commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

That's some good news. I'll definetly get these. However, another Peach ... another Mario ... different colors for Yoshi and Shy Guy ... I highly doubt that anyone wants yet another clone and those colors should've been in the game to begin with.



MajinSoul commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

WiiU and PC for me. It's unfortunate that I have to miss out on Scalebound since I absolutely love Platinum Games, but I won't buy an XBox One. I may end up buying or renting a PS4 just to play Bloodborne. The Souls games are my favourite games and it's really unfortunate that Bloodborne won't come to PC.



MajinSoul commented on Interview: DrinkBox Studios On Bringing Guacam...:

"The various consoles have different capabilities, different rules you have to follow, and they all require their own special attention." A lot of thruth in this one.

I'll also buy it on Wii U. I was interested in this game for quite a while now. I was on the fence of buying it on PS Vita for quite a while, but I'll definetly buy the Wii U version.



MajinSoul commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

I want a lot of them and I will get as many as I can granted studies and money don't fail me. So here it goes:

Hyrule Warrior, Devils Third (I thought it comes out this year), Bayonetta, Smash U, Toads Treasure Tracker, Pokemon Alpha Saphire, SMT 4 (no retail though), Theathrythm 2, The Pheonix Wright Trilogy, Persona Q ... the list goes on and on.

Project Cars looks promising, I will wait for reviews though. Watch Dogs is almost a no-go. ONLY and only if they heavily make use of the WiiU's features as in Miiverse, Gamepad, etc. and the game is perfectly optimized on WiiU will I consider buying it. I highly doubt that this will happen since they would have showcased those features on E3. They didn't though, so I won't buy it probably.



MajinSoul commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

"Never trust statistics you haven't falsified yourself". I want to see the exact statistic with the questions asked before I'm confident with this claim.

I also went from PS3 to WiiU. PS3 is such an amazing system on which I have over 50 games on. That's the most I owned on any console ever. However, it's collecting dust for over a year now and I will most likely only used again once Persona 5 releases.
As to getting a PS4? I highly doubt it. The only exclusive I'm interested right now is Blood Born. That's not enough to make me want to buy a PS4. Same goes for Xbox One btw. the only exclusive I'm interested in is Scalebound. Yes, there are tons of third-party games, but I get the cheaper on PC anyway. Also, the pay-to-play online is disgusting. Terrible next gen for me so far.



MajinSoul commented on Bayonetta Download Code Included With Retail a...:

Oh wow ... they give you Bayonetta 1 if you buy the 2nd one. Then people start to complain that the people that buy it digitally won't get it. Now everyone gets it and people start to complain again? The stupidity in here is outrageous...



MajinSoul commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-A-Mech Does Battle With S...:

There's nothing wrong with having a little fun.
Stuff like this is why I adore Nintendo and I will never quit enjoying their content.
But I'm sure that most of the people that didn't enjoy this are the ones that enjoyed Ubisoft's conference with that Aisha talking to the "cool kidz" with her cussing.



MajinSoul commented on E3 2014: Did Zelda Williams Just Tease Majora'...:

@BluesDrive I kind of agree. There was a lot of Zelda action recently (WiiU VC, WW HD, OoT 3D, ALBW ,..), Hyrule Warriors is coming soon and a new Zelda game in 2015. It shouldn't be overdone or else we might get bored at some point. That being said: I still want to see a MM remake on 3Ds or in HD



MajinSoul commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Innovative E3 Approa...:

I think the combination of the Direct and the Treehouse is what makes this E3 so special to me. It's amazing to see developers showing off their games live which have been previously shown off in the Direct. I hope they keep on doing it for the future E3s. I'm actually glad that they focused on WiiU. It's nice to see that Nintendo still believes in the WiiU unlike Sony who pretty much pretended the Vita to not even exist.



MajinSoul commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

Good news. There is so much truth in this quote, especially in the last bit:

"We're committed to it. We believe that it is a key innovation that, otherwise, all you're doing is making prettier pictures and using faster processors, and not bringing a lot of uniqueness in terms of gameplay."

This pretty much sums "next gen" up. It's all about being prettier without adding anything to the gameplay experience. I've played with the gamepad for 1 year and a half and it added so much to the gameplay. Yes, in some cases it could have been integrated more efficiently, but it doesn't have to be all the time.

On a side note: while typing this the news were running on TV and they showed off E3. There were mainly shown people playing on their 3DS, playing Smash Broth. Melee, Nintendo character cosplayers (Pikachu, Pit, etc.) and even a small report on Splatoon and an interview with Reggie stating something like "We want Splatoon to become the shooter equavilent of Mario Kart 8". Nintendo is rocking it!



MajinSoul commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

So, Nintendo's direct was amazing. One quality game after another.
They proved that they don't depend on third-party games in order to offer a unique and amazing gaming experience on their system.

However, I was more surprised of Microsoft's and Sony's. To me it seemed like the switched roles when compared to last year. Microsoft shifted from consumer unfriendly and entertainment to games, games and games. There show was all about games, be they exclusive or third-party. Sony, on the other hand tried to do the same as last year: winning the crowd by mocking Microsoft. Well, they failed in my humble opinion. It was funny last year due to the terrible design decisions of Microsoft, but not so much this year. Microsoft was strong and as such their mockery was emberassing. Also, isn't it funny how they always claim to be about "games" and "gamers" and made fun of the enternmaint system of Microsft, and a huge part of their conference was about "TV". /facepalm. If I were to buy another console next to my WiiU it sure wouldn't be a PS4 after this E3.



MajinSoul commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

It's not fair. The Zelda reveal was way too amazing to not pick it. In fact, everything was amazing. Xenoblade Chronicles X seems to live up to expectations, Yarn Yoshi looks very promising, Splatoon looks so innovative and fun and it came out of nowhere, Hyrule Warriors seems to amazing, ....

So my vote went on Bayonetta 2+1. I hadn't seen this one coming. It's a smart move and it shows that Platinum Games cares about the consumer by offering them the full experience. Day one for me.

This E3 was full of awesomeness for Nintendo fans. Though, like many others, I had hoped for some new info on ST x FE. Oh well, you can't have it all, I guess.



MajinSoul commented on E3 2014: Zelda Wii U Looks So Great You Really...:

I'm pretty confident now that they only showed ~ 40 secs because the game looks gorgeous. It completely overshadowed Hyrule Warriors imo. And since the latter is only 3 months away it would have harmed it imo. I have never seen a game as beautiful as this one. I hope the game lives up to the expectations.

Also, I don't think that a dark atmosphere is bad for TLoZ. In fact, I think TP has the best story in the entire franchise and that's partly due to the dark atmosphere. However, when you compare the artstyle of TP and Zelda WiiU I will easily pick Zelda WiiU ones. It's so gorgeous and timeless.

And concerning the control options: Yes, Skyward Swords Motion Controls were amazing and you really felt immersed. However, having finally been able to play WW HD, I say let go off the Motion Controls. Wind Waker plays so amazing with the gamepad. I haven't had to pause the game once in my entire playthrough. Not a single time. You can do everything on the gamepad that would have had to be done in the pause menu. Watching the map, selecting items, watching Miiverse bottle messages, and so on. It felt awesome. I don't think I can ever go back to the immersion breaking pausing. And since they said that Zelda U will be massive open-world, you ca n use these features while riding on Epona similar to sailing in WW HD.



MajinSoul commented on E3 2014: Did Zelda Williams Just Tease Majora'...:

Well, it could just mean that there will be Majora and/or Skull Kid playable in Hyrule Warrariors and one of his/her/its special moves is pulling the moon down to crush your enemies. Either way: that mask looks pretty good and I hope there will be a Majoras Mask remake aswell.



MajinSoul commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:

Finally he's honest, It was obvious long ago that Ubisoft tries to abandon the Wii U. Yes, a company's goal is to make money. But you guys act as if porting a game to WiiU costs the same as creating the game from ground up. Guess what - it doesn't. It's way cheaper. So even if it sells less on WiiU, there isn't much of a loss.
It also strikes me as insane that he believes that he can easily hop back on the ship once Nintendo managed to increase WiiU sales. THIS guy is part of the problem. Abandon the WiiU and come back once it's in a good position. Very smart.
He also stated that the WiiU shall become a mass market console and he wants to release a familiy game. Well, that sets it for me. I won't buy their casual games.

I really hope Iwata manages to rescue the WiiU on his own. And he shall never forget those disgusting third-party devs. A friend of mine keeps on bragging how Indie-devs are the future. And I can finally see why.



MajinSoul commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Summe...:

Well, I'll add my top 10 as well.

10. Resident Evil Revelations
9. Nano Assault Neo
8. Zombi U
7. Super Mario 3D World
6. Wind Waker HD
5. Wonderful 101
4. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
3. Pikmin 3
2. Mario Kart 8
1. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

I'm honestly surprised that so many people picked SM3W. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but DKCTF is better in every aspect except multiplayer (imo). Well opinions, I guess.



MajinSoul commented on Satoru Iwata Won't Attend E3 For Health-Relate...:

Polygon is a terrible website and Nintendo should avoid having contact with it imo. That being said, I hope Iwata gets well soon and as long as Miyamoto is at E3 I'm still hyped. I will never forget his happiness from playing and showcasing Pikmin 3 last year. The gaming industry needs more of his kind.



MajinSoul commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

I've just beaten Pikmin 3 yesterday (the credits are amazing) and I don't think I will use touchcontrols once I replay it. Wiimotion + was perfect for Pikmin 3

Edit: It's awesome that they still support Pikmin 3. That's Nintendo for you. Trying to make perfect games
