Monsti commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

It's so sad to see my favorite company slowly destroying itself every single day recently. It's nice people say "I don't care if the game is good", but your will care if the WiiU support dies and that after such a short life...unless of course you have infinite money....
It's the last nail in the coffin of this console, to say anything else is naive. After this holiday season noone who doesn't have the console yet will care anymore...they are already talking about the next thing they are doing.
Games being delayed is normal. But if you have to consoles with so little games coming out and it being the last hope to keep it's a big problem.

Like always: As long as "fun new ways" does not equal "gimmicky" I'm all for it. :) The stick on the and new...and important for the industry. Streetpass. Fun and new and not mandatory. Wagglewaggle and forced second screen integration...not so. I hope they finally understand that.



Monsti commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

Nintendo is the slowest multimedia company I know. They are VERY slow! They've been playing half-hearted catch-up for the last 5 years and they are still faaaaar behind. Do you really think entering the most short-lived sector of multimedia is a good move for them. Once they get a foot in dverybody will have long moved on to the next thing.
We are talking about the company who still can't get online play right! Why is everybody ignoring this??
I want change for Nintendo. I want a lot of change. But this is not the change the company needs.
I assume they want to stretch out into a million different sectors right now because they see that they are losing in the console sector. But the outcome won't be that they find another, better sector. It will be that they lose more. Noone in the mobile space cares about their brand. Noone cares about lasting products or quality. It's fast-food culture and they will be eaten up and spit out.

@XCWarrior And then they have the same problems that other companies are starting to have. That their branding doesn't mean anything anymore and people stop caring.
I don't think the standard phone-gaming audience is the Nintendo audience anyway.
The stocks jumping 21% is so typical for all this. Short lived hype. Then the first game flops and it falls 40%.



Monsti commented on Satoru Iwata Emphasizes That There Are "No Exc...:

This reads to me like there are no "franchises coming over" life people think here. It sounds like the will use their brands for mobile games (like Pokemon Shuffle for example which I now assume was an experiment for all of this here). Spreading themselves even thines is still a very very bad plan in my eyes...



Monsti commented on Weirdness: The Mail on Sunday Still Thinks We'...:

I would come to the defence of that guy, since in my eyes the DS/3DS are still Game Boys with different branding, but the children's toy thing, and the "The boy is back in town" tagline are just embarrassing.



Monsti commented on Pokémon Shuffle Available to Download Right N...:

I'm 100% done with f2p. I thought there are ways to still enjoy it with no or little money but it just doesn't work. You enjoy the game and at some point the frustration sets in. For a while I tried to convince myself that "well, this game is worth 3€ to me and I got it for free" but it just feels terrible if you feel like you have to pay to win and eventually it always does.



Monsti commented on Satoru Iwata Reiterates Plans for Quality of L...:

Uh yes, this is what bad restaurants though. When your one location another one. That will sure help. <_< Please don't tell me anymore that Nintendo has been in buisness for 125 years, so that must know what they are doing...If they kniw what they are doing then this is their way to break away from games...cause they sure won't be able to do all of what they say if they want to keep/ gain customers.
Solve your problems before you create more :/



Monsti commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors in the UK Added t...:

wait, so do I understand this right: Only the people with the Embassedor 3Ds can get this? Is Nintendo really that ignorant to everything that has been happening and the outrage about this whole email thing...



Monsti commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I know this is kinda unrelated but man...those faceplates look fantastic.

I ordered the Embassedor 3DS (still waiting like most of Germany) but I'm not sure if I'll be happy wit it. Can't really image havong a smaller screenright now.



Monsti commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:

After being burned by the Oracle games again last year (stopped playing them the dungeon design is the worst in Zelda history in my eyes) I finally played it over the Christmas break on the WiiU after never finished it on the GBA back in the day. Absolutely surprised. After a bit of a slow start it turned out to be what I think is one of the best Zelda titles. It's definitly in my top 5 (I generally still prefer 2D). I also thought the length was perfect.



Monsti commented on Nintendo and GungHo Online Entertainment Annou...:

This is exciting. I've been hearing a lot about this game and how addicted the Japanese gaming world is. But if I remember correctly this was f2p on the phone. (Maybe I'm wrong). But this concept as an actual full price game without microtransaction is just awesome. I've been playing those kind of games on the iphone for a while but the f2p aspect always leaves a bitter taste...can't wait.



Monsti commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Editions Already I...:

There was nothing "selected" about this. I organise Streetpass-meetings in my state and my friend does in the neighbour state. Of our base of like 60 people 1 person got the mail, and it was someone not buying many games. This is really bad to me and shows again that while Nintendo means well, they are terribly out of touch with their fans...ennoying.



Monsti commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Reveals Its Game of the...:

I'm always surprised how much people here on the site love Tropical Freeze. I'm playing it right now and it feels like a very mediocre game to at best. I loved MK8 although it sometimes feels really unbalanced. Much more so than Smash. But yeah I'd go with MK8 if it comes to first party. Had a lot of fun with it (still do!) and it has the best DLC ever (Shovel Knight still my game of the year and I feel like that game is pretty much perfect).



Monsti commented on Toys "R" Us Provides a Fresh Update on Cancell...:

@Pod Same here in Germany. I slowly start to see less villagers and Marths not that the second wave has arrived but the kids all buy Skylanders (Infinity doesn't seem to go over too well here either).
I'm pretty sure the reason is that it's mostly collectors/nostalgic Nintendo-Fans who cause the shortage in the States and of course: The resellers who bought them 20 times and make the prices now.



Monsti commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

Shovel Knight is by far my game of the year. I think it's the best game ever made in its genre.
DK is still shrinkwrapped since I lived abroad for most of the year and still working throuh the backcatalog of the WiiU. Really looking forward to that.



Monsti commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

@MadAdam81 You know what...I didn't wanna buy them and sell them because I don't feel like ripping people off. But doing it a fair price is really not a bad idea. I wouldn't mind. In fact (and sorry to all Americans who have to read this and didn't get one) I just bought mine 2 hours ago at a reduced price because they are not going so well here. They were 12 bucks...



Monsti commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

I got the last adapter in my local shop...this is two days before the official release!!! I'm mostly playing with the pro Controller though.
I think the Amiibo shortage still hasn't reached Germany. I see Marth and Wii Fit Trainer everywhere...



Monsti commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

@NinjaWaddleDee Nintendo didn't plan on this. I don't think they want to keep these figurines from you but rather just didn't expect the hype (because they're bad with these kind of things) and don't have more shelf space. Also: Wii Fit and Marth are only a big hit because they are rumored to be sold out soon. Again: Here in Germany noone cares about this. All figurines are plenty and normal price. But as soon as the rumor arrived people in the States (especially greedy resellers) rushed to the stores and bought them out.



Monsti commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

So glad we don't have all this in Germany. No retailer exclusives and plenty in stock. I also think we have as many people who buy to resell here. From what I hear they went out and bought up everything in some places in the States.
