Monsti commented on The Latest Miiverse Update Has Users In An Uproar:

This makes Miiverse completely irrelvant for me. There have been less and less people posting anyway but some a very active with pictures and entertaining posts....and now I won't see those because I don't check 3 times a day? Pointless. Maaaaan, what the hell are you doing Nintendo???



Monsti commented on Exclusive: eShop Publishers Are Dropping Relea...:

It's soooo frustrationg to read about game releases here, get excited and then on thursday find out it's not in the Eshop. Itlle Dew was one of those examples. And unlike Apple or Sony, Nintendo does not just let me switch to another eshop. Very very frustrating.



Monsti commented on Reaction: Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the M...:

@BLPs The reason people are repeating themselves is because Nintendo has been repeating the same mistakes and just doesn't learn anything...The doom and gloom is coming from the fact that they keep on going down the route they are going right now and lose the connection to consumer even further.



Monsti commented on Reaction: Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the M...:

I can just repeat the words that fit on pretty much everything Nintendo has been doing in the last 3-4 years: "Wasted potential" That's why I'm very pessimistic on Mario Maker. It's something that could be the greatest thing ever but I just know that these two words will probably be fitting for that one too. :/



Monsti commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Fails to Brea...:

@akaDv8R In my group of friends noone does. Most of the Nintendo fans I know are pretty conservative when it comes to video games and completely ignore digital releases. In my Streetpass Group (and that's like 15 people with a Wii U) hardly anyone has touched Shovel Knight because it's download only.

Also I just think people don't like the game concept. Look at my Avatar! I love the DS one but I don't understand why I'm supposed to buy a Wii U game with awesome graphics that I then CANNOT play on my TV...

P&D is disappointing. I dig the game. But here I'm supposed to pay for a free2play game????" is what I heard everywhere. :/



Monsti commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

Had a blast with this and only one connection error in 3 hours playtime. I'm also glad it was only 3 hours I don't wanna be burned out before the game is released. They have to make some things clearer in the actual game: Took me a while to find out I can switch off the annoying motion controls and I just found out after the demo that WALLS DON'T COUNT...that wasn't clear imo.



Monsti commented on Reminder: The First Splatoon Global Testfire D...:

Played the whole hour. This was the most fun I ever had playing a game online. Sooo much fun. So much deeper concerning tactics than I thought.
Had no hickups. When I switched weapons I had to sometimes try 2 times because the lobbies were full...that's all.
Also: Sooooooo glad they let me switch motion off and change the sensitivity!
Great experience. :)



Monsti commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

@Wolfgabe The thing is: No, you don't really need it to coordinate and no hardly anyone really uses it for that. But you wanna chat with your friends. Nintendo is soooo big on local multiplayer and always emphasis how much more fun it is. The reason it's more fun is you can talk to your friends while playing. It's a communal experience and you're having fun together. No voice chat in the game kills that a bit. And please don't start with skype. In reality you won't get 4 people to start skyping while they are playing online.



Monsti commented on NES-Style Adventure Alwa’s Awakening Could B...:

@rdrunner1178 Especially for a game like this the install base maters. They probably already have problems breaking even and a small install base makes it worse. We don't get some of the WiiU indie games in Germany cause the developers can't effort paying the German ratings board (USK). This is a problem for them.
And the Xone generally has more people buying those kind of's just how it is. It sucks, but it's true.



Monsti commented on Gallery: Wii U Owners React to Screenshot Remo...:

To be really honest I'm just glad they allowed they game to come out at all. What I don't get is just how strict they are about that stuff when they have a million options for parental controls on their consoles...



Monsti commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

Such a great game. And perfect on the small screen. I often play it on short bursts while listening to some podcasts....and of course I'd much rather play it on the 3DS than the Vita which I'm doing right now ;)



Monsti commented on Nintendo Begins Takedown Proceedings on Super ...:

@VeeFlamesNL Well if it doesn't hurt them then why act on that copyright. Thousands of Star Wars Fans are breaking the copyright every year by making fanfilm. You know what Lucasfims/Disney does: A competition with a price for the winner.
Again: Just because it's protected doesn't mean you have to act on that every single time.



Monsti commented on Nintendo Begins Takedown Proceedings on Super ...:

@VeeFlamesNL because you do not have to act on a law just because it exists. This doesn't hurt Nintendo a bit. Everyone who downloads this has the game anyway. Noone will not buy cause of this demo. It's just stupid. That's all it is. And Nintendo Fanboys and Fangirls are growing out of touch with their favorite company together.



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.



Monsti commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

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.



Monsti commented on DeNA Dreaming of 100 Million Daily Users on Fu...:

@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.
