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

@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 :P
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.

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



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.
