TourianTourist commented on Rumour: Data Miners Reveal That The Legend of ...:

Well, it sounds like they're going package the DLC with drabland areas. So, one pack could potentially give you a new area with four stages + 12 challenge missions + one Coliseum arena + new materials and outfits for that area.

Maybe they even do the preorder system from Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8 again. I would like that. As long as it doesn't go down the same route as Smash 4, I'm not opposed to DLC.



TourianTourist commented on Nintendo Has No Plans For amiibo Support In Th...:

Best news in a while! I want to enjoy collecting all the costumes in TriForce Heroes without having to track down figurines, which I don't want. I already got really mad, when they announced that I had to get the Link amiibo, if I wanted to use the Spinner in Hyrule Warriors. That was a massive disappointment.

amiibo is an huge issue for everyone, who just wants the content, but not the figurines. I think amiibo are great in Smash, because they don't take anything away from the game, but add an interesting idea. However, their inclusion in other games usually just results in locked content... and either it's not really interesting or worth it for the amiibo fans or it angers the people, who want to buy a complete game. In any case someone will always be unhappy with amiibo and it's good that they keep it out of this Zelda title.



TourianTourist commented on Rumour: Upcoming Mario Kart 8 DLC to Include B...:

The original source of this data was Brawl Custom Music back in November. It's very likely legit update data similar to the leaks in Hyrule Warriors, which all were real.

Nin3DSFan on GameFAQs just had some fun with this leak, nothing more. His obvious jokes are not a "proof" that the information would be fake. He even says in the next sentence "OK, seriously, they're going to be in it." He's just toying around and professional sites like NintendoLife and NintendoEverything should rather take a look at the actual sources.

The predictions from BitBlock were based on the BrawlCustomMusic leak. So, they still might turn out to be real.



TourianTourist commented on Each Splatoon amiibo Will Unlock 20 Special Ch...:

I really dislike this concept of amiibo locked content. I'm not a figurine collector, but I usually want all the content for a game, so Nintendo is putting me in an awkward position with their new business practice of amiibo. I'm not happy with this.

Smash did amiibo right, but in most of the other games they seem like a physical key for normal DLC content. They should offer the possibility to buy the content without amiibo and I wouldn't have any issues.



TourianTourist commented on Reminder: This is Your Last Day to Register Pr...:

On the German website it's worded clearly that you can still earn stars until September 30th. It's just that starting tomorrow games won't have registration cards in their boxes anymore. But you can still use registration cards from games released before April 1st, as long as they are not expired.



TourianTourist commented on Nintendo Held Back Western Launch Of New 3DS D...:

I still think that it has to do with them sitting on lots of Nintendo 3DS XL units, which now became obsolete with the New Nintendo 3DS XL. I mean, they are even at the same price, so why would someone buy a Nintendo 3DS XL now...?

Super Smash Bros. 4 was a good way of selling through the old 3DS models, before they released the new one(s).



TourianTourist commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

As a Zelda fan, who has put more than 150 hours into this game already, I can say that Hyrule Warriors is tons of fun and very addicting. Easily my game of the year... I don't care if the environments don't look as nice as in a usual Nintendo product. The game is fun and that's all what matters.

Also, the music in this game is awesome... what's wrong with your ears?

So, don't get scared by the 7/10 here. Best try it out for yourself.



TourianTourist commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I just bought a Nintendo 3DS XL with the golden A Link Between Worlds Limited Edition last year in addition to my Zelda 25th Anniversary Edition 3DS...

So, unless they will make another Zelda special edition, I'll probably pass. And now I feel like my 3DS XL is an inferior product, because it doesn't have the c-stick or the better 3D... way to please your fans Nintendo, all of this should have been including in the original XL...



TourianTourist commented on Trine Enchanted Edition Will Be Casting A Spel...:

Trine 2 is one of my favorite games of all time.

Trine is not that good, so I would advise to play Trine 2 first and play Trine later, if you liked Trine 2. The story can be understood without playing the first game.

Anyways, I'm happy to see the Enchanted Edition coming to the Wii U. I will definitely buy it, even though I already have it on the PC (the beta).



TourianTourist commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (Europe):

I just bought NES Remix 2 for my collection last Friday... makes me really angry at myself now... even though it's just a 3€ difference, it felt overpriced and 6,99€ would have been a nicer price... and I also haven't played it yet, which makes me even angrier, because I could have easily waited until this week. Arrgh.



TourianTourist commented on LostWinds Now Available For Wii to Wii U Transfer:

This is annoying... I set up everything, ready to be transferred. I downloaded the update for LostWinds. Then I deleted the game and redownloaded it. I even redownloaded the transfer tool.

It still tells me that the game cannot be transferred... why does it work for some people and for others not? Jeez...

Edit: Apparently the problem is not the Wii, but the Wii U. There the game is still not listed in the Wii Shop Channel...



TourianTourist commented on LostWinds Now Available For Wii to Wii U Transfer:

Finally! I've been waiting with my Wii U transfer for this. I actually even lost hope and thought they didn't care about it anymore. But I didn't want to part the two LostWind games from each other.

Now I can finally make that system transfer.



TourianTourist commented on Guest Blog: Shut up! Nothing is Wrong With The...:

It's interesting, how the title reads "nothing is wrong with the Wii U", while the article points out exactly what is wrong with the Wii U...

Also, small or not, Minecraft is the biggest gaming phenomen of the current generation. No super third party AAA title can compete with that. Nintendo doesn't need Call of Duty. It needs Minecraft. It has the spark that Nintendo used to have in its NES / GameBoy times. The game is pure magic and for today's kids Minecraft will be what Mario and Zelda were for us. Don't underestimate it.



TourianTourist commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

Considering that Retro Studios should be behind it, Metroid Prime 4 in 2014 would be rushed. 2015 maybe. Though a new Metroid game for 3DS made by Sakamoto might be possible.

But Majora's Mask 3D for me, that's on top of my personal wish list.



TourianTourist commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD...:

I was hoping that the review would tell us something that we didn't know already.

What do the new treasure charts offer? They made some changes to item locations, how does that feel? What happened to the Tingle Statues, Swingle and other Tingle Tuner extras? Are they still in the game?

Hero Mode also doesn't get mentioned...



TourianTourist commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I've never played GTA... probably because I never had any Playstation. And I'd rather play Saints Row IV, because that one looks really fun and crazy. I like how the game doesn't take itself serious.

But my money goes to the Zelda edition Wii U bundle with The Wind Waker HD. Really looking forward to getting and playing this.



TourianTourist commented on Review: Turok 2: Seeds of Evil (Nintendo 64):

Turok: Rage Wars next please. This one used to be my favorite.

Turok 2 had many issues, but I still enjoyed it and even beaten it many times back in the day on the N64. The music was great and the weapons were a lot of fun to use.



TourianTourist commented on Review: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (Nintendo 64):

I've never played the first game, but I've played Seeds of Evil to death. It was my first first person shooter and I really enjoyed the game for its weaponry, even though the game is a giant fog machine.

My personal favorite is Rage Wars though. The game would later bring me into arena shooters like Unreal Tournament and Q3A on the PC, but it was pretty fun on the console to play with friends.

I've tried Turok 3 years later, but I felt that it was really disappointing.



TourianTourist commented on Pachter: Without Third Party Support Nintendo ...:

Nintendo doesn't need any Third Party support. Ubisoft didn't sell Wiis. EA didn't sell Wiis. Wii Sports did. And other great Nintendo software.

I don't have a single third party game for the Wii. And I have many Wii games. I was very happy with my Wii without any third party titles...

The only thing that keeps the Wi U from selling is Nintendo itself. Nintendo's Wii U games so far haven't given the Wii fans a big reason to adopt.



TourianTourist commented on Klei Entertainment Would Like To Bring Don't S...:

I've played Don't Starve for a while until I couldn't keep up with all their content updates. It's a hard game and a cruel one. When you die you lose everything. It's basically Minecraft's early minutes of Hardcore Survival meets Tim Burton's fantasies, pretty crazy game. I really enjoy the style.

Problem with a 3DS ports are the controls. They are currently thinking about GamePad support, but I don't know how the game should work with a pad... right now it's played by mouse and WSAD, heavy clicking.



TourianTourist commented on Cliff Bleszinski Likens The Wii To A "Virus":

Animal Crossing might be a game that keeps you playing... but who actually plays this? I don't know anyone.

And what's up with the sarcasm? Of course you can play games more than once. I've played through Ocarina of Time countless times. But no one does that in an endless loop. Most Nintendo games have a clear end, where nothing is left to do except for replaying them. My point was about games that KEEP you playing. As in potentially never ending.

I have a Wii with all big Nintendo titles for it. The same with the 3DS (except for the new Luigi's Mansion, haven't picked that up yet). And I rarely use the two systems. There are phases where I play a specific game like Skyward Sword, but inevitably the Wii returns into the closet (so it doesn't literally collect dust). On the other hand I play my PC all the time, the same couple of games for years... I rarely get bored of it unlike my Nintendo systems, which become boring real fast.

Nintendo needs something that keeps their systems running and interesting.



TourianTourist commented on Cliff Bleszinski Likens The Wii To A "Virus":

Oh, I didn't mean Nintendo doesn't have any timeless games. They sure have and I still enjoy their classics today, especially the old Zelda games. But you don't always play Zelda. A Zelda game is finished at some point. You may replay it after some time, but you don't always play Zelda.

Monster Hunter definitely has such an everlasting appeal, but it's not an exclusive Nintendo franchise, it's a Capcom game.
