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.

@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.

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 ;)

@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.



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.
