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 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



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

The soundtrack in this game is amazing. Just listen to "Skyloft", if you aren't convinved yet. The framerate drops are worrysome and locked 30fps isn't great either. I watched the SW4 PS4 trailer earlier and that game looked way more polished. Anyway, can't wait to hack'n'slash through hordes of enemies in Hyrule Warriors on friday (scores don't mean anything to me)



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

"[...]emphasising how it was important to avoid any considerable differences between the two versions of the game.[...]"

It really makes me wonder what the Wii U version has to offer. They remain so silent about that version that it starts to make me worry. Saying that the two version shall not have any significant differences and the Wii U version not getting Smash run is worrysome. I hope they start to pump out some information once the 3DS versions have released.

To the Ice Climbers: I never really liked to play them in Melee and Brawl, but then again: I haven't played the Ice Climbers games. Though, I hated their levels in NES Remix. That being said: it's always sad to see veterans leaving the field, especially for those of us that liked them. I also think that a portable version shouldn't affect the console version, but that's just my opinion.



MajinSoul commented on Feature: Ahead Of Hyrule Warriors, We Take A L...:

Was very interested in Pirate Warriors on the PS3 but never got around buying it. I played the demo of one of the Warriors games (forgot its name) on my PS Vita and I quite enjoyed it, though it felt a bit uncomfortable on the small screen. Hyrule Warriors is preorded and if they follow HW release with a discount on Warrior Orochi 3 on the Wii U, I might just get that one aswell.



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

I will get it next week, together with Hyrule Warriors. A 9 is a really good score and we need as many Indie games as possible, especially if they are as fleshed out as this one.



MajinSoul commented on This New Fatal Frame Trailer Highlights the Ga...:

@KoopaTrooper I alway wonder that myself. I mean, it can't be that difficult to localize a game, since all you need to do is translate the game's text and get voice actors (which isn't even necessary in a lot of cases). Why can't they translate the game while writing the script? Well, maybe I'm lacking knowledge and am just oversimplifying things.



MajinSoul commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

He is not forcing anyone into buying his games and it is true that the consumers show interest in these "games" by buying them over and over again.

That being said I still think that these games have no right to infest the eshop. How can any self-respecting gamer produce this shovelware with the least amount of effort put into it without any intention to produce worthwhile content. Even if this is a simple flappy clone, you could do so much more with the game. Put in different soundtracks, character models, backgrounds, ....

Sorry, but this dev is not a gamer in my opion.



MajinSoul commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:

I don't know. He might tell the truth, but having been treated like a low class citizen by Ubisoft you never know these days. Though, he is right by claiming that we lack racing games. We have Mario Kart 8 and NFSMW. That's it. He could have destroyed all doubts by showing some Wii U footage, even some screenshots would've served.



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.
