Reusinck commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

Its internet: everyone wants to have an opinion and since you cant be personal, people pretend a lot and shout a lot. also, there are some really dumb people online, like, shockingly dumb. So i tend to not participate in review discussions and just enjoy the review as a text, not an advice or proof of something.

Only bad thing about this year is the low output. Wasnt interested in buying the tennis or the amiibo board game in the first place, so thats ok. Devils third is the only let down for me.



Reusinck commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Super Metroid:

Super Metroid is one of the most fun games I played on the WiiU VC. Tried to finish it without any online help, which I did -eventually-. Later found out I was missing multiple upgrades, so I immediatly played it again. Love the way the player needs to find out everything for her-/himself. That makes is a very personal experience.

A moody, detailed classic that's aged very, very well IMO...



Reusinck commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I tend to not buy anything digital except VC's and some indies because

  • I can't sell digital copies
  • I cant buy secondhand digital copies
  • I can't show people cases when choosing a game to play
  • I Need to add stuff to my wiiU in order to make it work
  • Digital isn't faster/safer to use at all (or at least not notable to me)
  • Cant buy when not online/I prefer wandering around in a gameshop before buying.

And last but definitly not least,

  • Digital games are, for reason's completely beyond me, MORE expensive than physical copies, even though you factually get less! god knows why, but it is)

I don't see any advantages to buying digital whatsoever except for VC's.



Reusinck commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

Don't get me wrong, I love reading articles and reviews on this site. Also, i found the hands-on article about Devil's Third insightful,

"Games journalism isn’t journalism. Games journalism is a neglected johnny-come-lately subset of entertainment journalism, which is also—with a few honorable exceptions—not journalism. Because entertainment journalism is a field where all of the money and all of the power lies in the hands of companies selling products, where the only thing to “cover” is the products being sold, where the target audience of the publication is defined by their pre-existing desire to purchase the product, and thus the border between advertising and “journalism” can’t help but be blurred." - Arthur Chu

So i gues both parties are getting a bit childish now. I'll just wait untill the game releases.



Reusinck commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

"Video games are meant to be just one thing. Fun. Fun for everyone!"

  • Satoru Iwata

That quote, by the man who created Kirby, the wii, the DS, earthbound. He nailed it, lived by it, and inspired me with it.

Iwata-san, somehow, you're still around; Everyone can now just press start to have fun. I thank you for that.



Reusinck commented on The Animal Crossing amiibo Range is Bigger Tha...:

hi jaxonH. Thx for your reply. You must have misread my post. Im not saying companies are doing this on purpose. Also, yes i DO think its a benefitial thing to do. Its not a conspiracy but a well known marketing strategy, nothing new, esspecially with collectibles. Those numbers also do t mean anything to me on their own. I'd need full financial insight to state anything about that, those arent publicly available.

Im glad to sense that you were able to find all amiibo's you sought.



Reusinck commented on The Animal Crossing amiibo Range is Bigger Tha...:

They're Having so much problems with keeping up the current amiibo's and are Lying about not doing this on purpose. I mean, i believed them until they started repeating the exact same thing(which was 1 day later). I cannot believe a 125 year old game/toy company can't mass produce toys they invented themselves for more than 1 whole year. Sounds like an unreliable company to me.



Reusinck commented on Reaction: The Concept of eShop 'Early Access' ...:

Well, I won't buy early access games because I'm not an investor but a gamer. So i only pay money for full games, if I can check the content.

Just like I dont watch half-finished movies or read early drafts of books.



Reusinck commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

Great article. One cannot deny that some weird choices have been made by Nintendo regarding the marketing of the console. Star Fox for instance, looks like it's 10 years old! And there are still quite a number of people who dont know the difference between a wii and a wiiU. Then there is the 3rd party issue. such weird choices..

That being said, I still think the WiiU is the console I had the most fun with. I love the gamepad to play offscreen, and since I haven't had all Nintendo consoles, the VC is awesome and I've discovered some true gems there (Metroid series!). I hope Nintendo puts a lot of effort in releasing vc's and Indies on the WiiU if it's truly coming to an end.

My WiiU is faaaaaaaar from being replaced.



Reusinck commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

Wasn't expecting a Metroid, so not let down about THAT. The problem is that they release something that's obviously NOT a Metroid game, and then just state it is. Next they release an animal crossing game that not an actual AC game, next they release a Zelda game that is NOT an actual Zelda game.

Next, Reggie smiles at the camera and says how carefull they are about their IP's and shows us how Bowser and Donkey Kong are now Skylanders.

That's my problem. seems like Nintendo is selling out HARD and as a Nintendo fan I find that worrying.



Reusinck commented on Feature: What We Expect from Nintendo's E3 Dig...:

New Metroid, hopefully 2D. Hopefully more Indies that will still come to WiiU such as Ori and the Blind Forest, Octodad etc. New Mario (platform)games are always welcome though that seems unlikely, since Super Mario Maker basically is just that. Mk8DLC would also excite me. Devils Third, hopefully some weird surprise no one expected..

yeah, quite excited for their digital event...



Reusinck commented on Guide: Use these Splatoon Tricks & Advanced Te...:

Tip: match your gear! Some perks work great with some weapons but are useless on other weapons: walkingspeed on rollers, Damage on high RoF guns for example (damage ups per "bullet" so technically damageboost have more effect on high rate-of-fire weapons). The other way around won't have as much impact.
Also: paintbrush + opening gambit + messaging "follow me" = insane in ranked mode. Or at least using each others ink to be speedier.



Reusinck commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

I dont like being told to screw off. Knowing it comes from someone who buy a game twice because he wants his doll makes it less hurtfull though. Knowing it comes from someone who gave money away without ANY garantee what will happen to the product OR the money, makes it even a little funny.

You should be happy, because you're getting a game twice for only double the price!



Reusinck commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

You (assuming you've backed up the game) havent made "it happen". you just paid someone elses marketing campain. Also, you choose to buy something twice, your not entitled to it, read Kickstarters rules for more info about that. I only pay for things that actually exist, Or i would be an investor who actually DOES have something to say about the game instead of just throwing money at random people like kickstarter projects.



Reusinck commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

Hey, we just spend 4 years on this game , so better make sure to price those 4 years instead of what a consumer is actually willing to pay...

Yeah of course that goes wrong, no one to blame but yourself. Blaming consumers is just BS. Get your business strategy straight and make something worth the consumers money instead of whining about "the industry".

2 Indie games like S&S2 (digital, so no trading/returning/lending/showing off/selling/no quality garantee) or 1 Nintendogame (will have a good reselling price, different sellers, so competition --> better prices, will sell fast/ slim chance of you actually wanting to sell it)? How does it NOT make sense that your game will sell bad?!



Reusinck commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 Available to Download ...:

I like how you call one of the most critically acclaimed DLC's "a complete trainwreck" and are "fully aware" you're offending people, but are still "disappointed" that people do this on a forum that reminds you "an awful lot of DA".

As cherry on the cake, your "self-knowledge on how you to express critical thoughts and are not willing to change" must make it a wonderful experience to post anyway!

Sad to hear you don't like the DLC hehehe. No seriously.



Reusinck commented on Marvel at the Launch Trailer, Live Music and T...:

Just excellent. This made my day! All tracks look fun, even though Koopa City is not one of my favorites. We'll see how it ends up in MK8. The music is spot on as always and makes me wanna start up the game right now. These tracks and the 200cc inclusion: still the best wiiU game.



Reusinck commented on Mario Kart 8 Is Getting A Blisteringly Fast 20...:

This was actually the best news on the direct! Very, very excited about this, MK8 is by far the game I play most on my WiiU, and with the DLC and this news, that trend will continue. One big fat hooray for hearing this awesome news, on my birthday!



Reusinck commented on Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:

excited! For me, this might be the best game of this year! (LoZlooked really empty and not particularly epic, Xenoblade might not be my thing ) I still love playing MK8 online and I'd love another game to endlessly play online! Since I'm the only one using the WiiU, offline Multiplayer will not be missed. Dunno what to think of the lack of ofline voicechat. I understand why they chose not to do it, but this does look like a tactical game: players using Skype will probably have huge advantages.



Reusinck commented on Mobile Developers Extremely Positive About Nin...:

The only people I know playing mobile games are people who aren gamers persé but just people looking for something simple and mindless: kids, women and elderly people. That seems to be the same demographic group that did buy the wii: non-gamers looking for something simple and easy and fun. So could be something...

As I had a lot of great console-gaming experiences myself (also on handheld), i can't imagine degrading back to mobile games myself.



Reusinck commented on Satoru Iwata And DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu Discus...:

Buy a WiiU if you like the current catalogue. Do not buy it if you don't, because that's what you get. Seems like a really weird choice to buy something for vague future plans. You should buy it in the future if you want to know of how future plans turn out.



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

I won't be playing games on a phonetablet. Tried it a couple of times, was not amused. But i can imagine a lot of people do. Im just into Nintendo for their gamesconsole experience. And hope they will keep on releasing great games for consoles. The rest is off my field of focus.
