@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.

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...

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.

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.

We're close to maximum stability, I think!!!

Btw: I really like the shuffle function for the themes. Made me download some more right away. The thing that was keeping me was that I'm too lazy to change them all the time. ^^

Monsti commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I gotta say this article dosen't make a lot of sense to me. Sorry.
The phone market is so oversaturated and I don't see why trying to get a share in is any useful to Nintendo. People only have 1 phone, but everybody who has a phone can still buy a 3DS...I don't really see the point. And then there are parts like this:
"By creating its own "mobile eShop", Nintendo could release the entire Virtual Console back catalogue and unify its digital storefront across all of its devices. By linking them all together, we could finally see a time when games could be purchased on your phone and then queued for download on your 3DS or Wii U — something which Sony already allows via its own smartphone application and website."

Why do we need a phone for this? Nintendo is already not good at making something out of the VC...why would that suddenly change on a phone and why do we need a phone to get a better VC.

The Miiverse thing is the same. I love Miiverse but most people are already not using it anymore. I don't see that changing just because they have it on the go.

Monsti commented on Wii U YouTube Application Receives An Update, ...:

Dom't understand people's problems with this app in the slightest. It has become my main way of watching youtube. The only thing missing is the commenting section. It's definitly 1000 times more convinient than the browser.
I can also skip ads and never had any problems with the framerate.

Monsti commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

After seeing how they actually (the picture up there is STILL the prototype versions with the nicer stand) I might not get any. Already cancelled my Fox preorder, not sure if I shouldn't cancel Samus as well...

I think the pricing changed. I had a 3 months subscription to Germany that just ended (was very happy with the stuff I got), but I'm REALLY sure I paid like 5-10$ less than what its now. 28$ is pretty heavy for what you get and I fear Amiibo won't be different.

Still no Disc Version in Eu. I don't get why they don't se this to push the Wii U rather than making lazy ports for a system that doesn't need it.

I haven't read every single comment but people seem to ignore completely that the Streetdate in Germany is OFFICIALLY the 2nd because the 3rd is our national holiday!!!! So they broke the streetdate by one day. I'm pretty sure this will happen all over Europe tomorrow...

OH MY GAAAAAAAWD!!!!!!!!!! This is beyond awesome. I hope it's not too late in the 3DS's life cycle to make a difference in game development.

Monsti commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

I think this is the best way they could go on mobile. It's not taking anything away from their platforms since the Card Game does not exist there anyway and it's something simple and something meant for touchscreen. And YES, I'd much rather play this on my Ipad then my 3DS or Wii U. I often pick up the ipad for 5 minutes to play a round of Hearthstone and then check emails or Facebook.

Monsti commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

I'm not a big online player and I would prefer local coop. The reality however is that at the end of my grad studies and working as well. Many of my friends finished university and have a job now. The live in other towns. This would have been the perfect game to talk and play since these kind of games usually are from my experience. So as much as I think it still looks great, it destroyed the purpose it had for me completely. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only Nintendo-Fan over 25. There will be others like me with this problem.

Monsti commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

Even though this is a Nintendo site I'm shocked all over again how many awful fanboys there are here. There is no reason to defend this and to say it dosen't need it, it's a small developer or whatever. This game is meant to be coop and video games are not just played by 8 year olds anymore. And not everybody is single and has no life! The only way for me to play this with friends if I can call them up to have some online co-op in the evening. I can't have them drive through town (if they live there cause most don't!) and sit on my couch all night.
It's nice if people will still play it, but me and my friend now won't be able to...so that's Hyrule Warriors for me.

Monsti commented on Gallery: A Closer Look At 13 amiibo Toys:

Zelda, Samus and Fox look amazing. Pit, too. Since I have all kinds of smaller Zelda stuff I'll probably opt for Fox since it's sooooo much harder to get something from that franchise.

Bad bad timing. I've been waiting a long time for Guacamelee and for Chibi Robo...but man, do I want to play Shovel Knight right now. ^^ Still gonna get the other two of course. ^^

Splatoon looked fun, glad Yoshi looks much better than 18 months ago and the Kirby Artstyle is beautiful. Zelda was almost disappointing since they didn't really show anything "real". But the Star Fox announcement got me excited the most.

Monsti commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

The comparisons with street fighter everybody makes are a bit weird. It's not a combo...Even if they are not in the manual combos are meant to be found. I'm very very very sure Nintendo didn't plan on people online to hop around like maniacs.

Monsti commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

It's obviously a glitch and not meant to be in an advantage an therefor an exploit. Not really hard math to get to that conclusion. Therefor it should be patched. It might be small but here's nintendo's turn to prove how serious they are about of all of this. If they patch this I'm completely confident for the stuff to come in the future (such as Smash).

Monsti commented on Here Are Plenty of Lovely Hyrule Warriors Scre...:

@Zombie_Barioth Yes I do believe that. The way the character model is framed you are meant to see exactly that one element of her. You can make yourself believe that you saw the picture and only after you read the comments realised "Oh yes, they are quite big and quite emphasised", but the developers made sure that that isn't true.
Trust me, I'm usually the last person to complain about these kind of things, but one of LoZs qualities is that it is better than this. It doesn't need it! It's a clichée element of Japanese game art that the series can proudly say it doesn't use...or maybe not anymore.
