Re: Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Switch)

Masticore

I don´t think the review is trying to give you a good clue about what´s skyrim is all about for a newcomer, ohh well, for sure it doesn´t give you any excitement of what´s to come. The review is trying too much with a intelectual language that nobody will understand than unless you maybe have played the game already. I haven´t played Skyrim. The review gives me the feeling it must be a very boring game for intelectual speaking people. I´m better off with Xenoblade, it´s for me the safer bet since I loved the 1st one on Wii

Re: Sonic Forces on Switch Has Solid UK Launch as DOOM Moves Up the Charts

Masticore

All known retailers here in germany, even gamestop didn´t have a single piece of doom for the switch on launchdaymin my city. One of the retailers got the info that the ordered doom games should arrive between monday and wednesday. The delay is due to the holidays in big parts of central europe on the 31st of Oct and 1st of Nov and that the retailers have been ordering too late to secure doom for launchdate. So doom couldn´t sell better physical copies for that reason in it´s launchweek.

Re: Trademark Application Has Fans Dreaming of the Nintendo 64 Classic Mini

Masticore

SNES mini is the biggest must-have of the Minis, NES mini also very cool. Those 2 are the biggest childhood memories from gaming.
N64 was also a part of it, but as long as Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Banjo Kazooie, maybe Diddy Kong Racing too (all Rareware's) won't be on it, I'm not interested. That is since in my opinion Rare even made better games on the N64 than Nintendo themselves.

Re: HyperX Announces Smash Bros., ARMS And Street Fighter eSports Event

@sligeach_eire
How can you have an opinion when you haven´t even played ARMS?
To me it can be quite competitive, the ranked mode it´s about competitive, you notice it immedately if it´s a ranked match or a party one. If the game sells well and Nintendo will keep up witth new content for the game with tweeks and balancing updates there sure will be a community, might aswell enough for eSports.
If Nintendo games can gain eSports interest from other games ARMS can make it too.
I wouldn´t consider Nintendo games that much of an eSport´s, they are and meant to be children and faimly games.
eSports is established on PC with games like Counter-Strike, Quake, Unreal Tournament, StarCraft and so on

Re: Max Brass is Set to Bring Extra Shine to ARMS on 12th July

Masticore

@EQUINOX
Personally I prefer ARMS over Splatoon. And without splitscreen multiplayer in Splatoon I could see Splatoon struggeling with the same success comparing to its predecessor. The Switch gets marketed as easy to pick up and play multiplayer machine with using only one console. Atleast ARMS do offer splitscreen multiplayer, using single-joy-cons as controlleroption is allthough questionable.

I´m still enjoying ARMS alot no matter alone or together with somebody. So much dept with the different kinds of arms. Looking forward for new upcoming arms to mix up the fighting strategies. Hopefully a statically shown rankings will follow up aswell

Re: Splatoon 2's First Splatfest To Take Place Before The Game Launches

With no splitscreen multiplayer this entry will bomb. Children won't play online alone and I for sure as a parent won't buy a online multiplayer game with only online multiplayer and not splitscreen. You play these games to share the fun with your children.
But on the positive side, can save money for other games instead.
Mario Kart and ARMS are great alternatives.

Re: Former Nintendo Staffer Giles Goddard Would Love To Make A New F-Zero

Masticore

I agree with @NEStalgia, that's the way they should go with F-Zero and Star Fox from now on, atleast try if it works and gain more interest and sales. Nintendo has to tell stories about it's characters and IP's that are less known. The oldstyle kinds of games can still get made alongside if the IP's gain maibstream interest.

Re: Deals: Be Quick And Grab The New Metroid And Super Mario Odyssey amiibo

Masticore

2 amiibos at that price is actually a full retail 3ds game or a switch game with a good deal. The amiibos are really off-turning atm with the new price-standard, and most ammibos only offer something for like 1 game, l99k at cloud or bayonetta or any other 3rd party amiibo. Only 1st party amiibos offer more than for 1 game, and then mainly the super mario ones

Re: Amazon UK Reduces SNES Mini Orders to One Per Customer

Masticore

In germany they charge €99,99 everwhere for pre-ordering. It would be if Nintendo will change or confirm an official price that it then could be reduced, but I doubt it. I would prefer to pay $79 like in the US, seems to be the cheapest yet.
Considering that for the NES mini I only had to pay €69,99 for my two NES mini's. It's €30 more, I guess Nintendo realized they can charge more since it is a hot item and then leaves less profit for the scalpers. I would although prefer the old price

Re: Talking Point: EA and Bethesda Highlight Nintendo Switch as a Portable Powerhouse at E3

Masticore

Ofcourse EA and Bethesda wants to highlight their upcoming games on the Switch as awesome handheld versions since Skyrim is an old game, console versions of that game is nothing new and u want to market something what is new and could be demanded to reach maximum sales. EA does the same in hope that the customers owning both a Switch and another PS4 or Xbox may then buy 2 versions of the game so they don´t compete with themselves with their different versions of consoles. The Switch for the fact can offer handheld gaming which the other versions of FIFA doesn´t, only natural to outline that as the selling point of a marketing perspective, that the Switch version can be played on a TV aswell is ofc something interesting aswell for us as Switch customers, we want to see how it´s played on the big TV, unfortunately that comes in 2nd place in these cases

Re: Sony Thinks You'll Buy A PlayStation 4 Alongside Your Nintendo Switch

Masticore

What i mean is.. the Switch needs to be the dominating console this generation, for themselves to survice to the competition, to keep me as a loyal customer and to many others who thinks the same. I´m pretty sure if the Switch doesn´t win, Nintendo will bring out one more console which then will sell maximum the WiiU numbers and then Nintendo will leave the console market and start something else really Niche only Nintendo stuff

Re: Sony Thinks You'll Buy A PlayStation 4 Alongside Your Nintendo Switch

Masticore

I´ve been owning only Nintendo consoles since the very first beginning with the NES. I had all except the Gamecube and the WiiU. The Nintendo concepts of their consoles have always appealed more to me and my children than the competitors. The competitors are only aiming for powerful graphics and offer fewer games for children. The 1st Party offerings from the competitors isn´t much and is probably very weak in comparison to Nintendos. Playstation has good 3rd Party support which Nintendo lacks since long, it had tempted me to try out the Playstation for a console-generation instead of Nintendo and there is no way I would invest in 2 consoles at a time due to more costs and more time dedication and to organize that with a family and all. I skipped the WiiU bcuz of the lack of 3rd Party but more so bcuz of the lack of quality 1st Party from Nintendo. Now I`ve taken the risk with the Switch, the new Zelda was too tempting and I`m hoping Nintendo has learned and will bring out more quality 1st Party games than for the WiiU combined with better 3rd Party support. Else it might be my last Nintendo console, may aswell be the last video-console at all. To see Nintendo lose the long-run competition again against playstation and xbox then I guess there won´t make any more sense to stay loyal to Nintendo once again since they will never get that full support back like in the SNES days which we so much miss as Nintendo fans

Re: Payday 2 Announced For Nintendo Switch

Masticore

Even a Nintendo franchise like Metroid, actually beloved by the Nintendo's loyal fanbase, gets threatened by the critical fanbase who ain't buying anything else than Nintendos own games on it's Nintendo console. Look at it now, the latest Nintendo games we're getting are the extreme kiddy looking Splatoon and Arms. They might not be bad games, but no wonder Nintendo isn't paying attention to Metroid or F-Zero

Re: Payday 2 Announced For Nintendo Switch

Masticore

Since we don't seem to get any "maturer" games for the Switch, or just not yet. Maybe it would be wise to support these kinds of games in hope to get more 3rd Party support and mature games. As an only-Nintendo-owning-console-owner, I would like to play not just kiddie games. The Kiddie games are fun together with my children, but for me personal, only Zelda and Xenoblade isn't enough to justify my Switch-Purchase

Re: Sonic Playable in Super Mario Galaxy 2?

Masticore

If Nintendo is allowing Sonic in a mariogame they are starting to go nuts, it's an extremely bad idea that I think Nintendo fans will quit staying loyal to their favourite consolemaker. Being innovative is one thing and is good when developers pushes their franschises into new challenging gaming ideas but an idea like this will destroy the mariogames completely.

Re: Speak Up, Monster Hunters

Masticore

This seems to be a must buy. Will probably become a powergaming game, i will PG it together with my girlfriend, cant wait =)
Any swedish ppl who wanna team up to create a guild or something from the release day?

Re: Super Mario Galaxy 2

Masticore

It's probably gonna be a good game, but I wont waste my money for another Galaxy game when I already got the first one. Why not just play through the 1st Galaxy one more time in a couple of years when u cant remember anything? And instead spending the money for a new nice title. It's a cheap way from nintendo to try to earn more money on an already developed gaming idea, they could have instead developed something totally new in the mario series instead of just making a sequel with pretty much just new stages to go through.
