SilentHunter382 commented on The Club Nintendo Goodbye Coin Has, Well, Said...:

I had 900 stars left so I logged on to see what I could get and for some reason it was saying I hadn't linked my Nintendo ID with my Club Nindento (even though I thought I did) so I am getting an extra 750 point within the next day. So now I have to see what I will get for 1650 points now.



SilentHunter382 commented on First Run Wii U Copies of Rodea the Sky Soldie...:

I do like these kinda special editions.

This will give people an idea of how much has been done to the wii u version compared to the wii version. Still I have no interest in the game atm but this is a great surprise to those who are interested in it.



SilentHunter382 commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

I can kinda see why people would think that the Zelda game were open world but really they weren't. The first legend of zelda game and a link between worlds were really the only 2 open world games as you could tackle anything you want.

You couldn't go to half the areas in the other titles without having to do something else in order to progress.



SilentHunter382 commented on Review: Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy+ (3DS):

I am not sure if anyone has missed it but I think there is a update in the eshop (Irish eshop) that has an update for the original game to support the amiibos and any extra content. I could be wrong on this as I only glanced at it earlier today.



SilentHunter382 commented on ​Sakurai Considered Having All Fighters Unlo...:

While I do like the idea of unlocking character as it makes it satisfying I would rather have them all unlocked from the start as if you just bought the game and invited your friends over then you won't have all the characters unlocked.

It's kindaof a double edge sword. Do you please the people who want to unlock things or have them unlocked from the start for people who don't have the time to unlock characters and have the character they want to play as from the start.



SilentHunter382 commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

This is going to be a long post but here goes.

I am on side with the youtubers on this one. There are many games (regardless if they are Nintendo games or not) that I have seen them play games and they looked like I would enjoy them. I would stop the videos and go and buy the product.

Indie companies need Let's Players or Reviews on youtube to help promote their content as they don't have the money to show off there product. Many games became successful because of LP with minecraft being the obvious answer. Where would that game be if it wasn't for them.

Nintendo should work with them not create a program that pushes them away. It's free advertisement for them (They hardly do any advertisement themself so they should really be thanking them). The more people that will stop doing Nintendo stuff the quicker it will come back to bite Nintendo.

If you read the fine print of this program you will see that it will have to go through Nintendo for approval. While I do understand why they want to do this but this also discourages people from joining the program also as you will have to suck up to Nintendo just to to get your video approved. People won't be able to give any criticism about the product (even if it is constructive criticism in fear of it not being approved).

All in all this will just become a mess for 2 reasons.
1: bigger youtubers won't do it as this program won't benefit them but they won't do Nintendo products in fear of their video getting no money from them or getting a strike on their account.

2: Upcoming youtubers joining this program to make easy money but will have to give nothing but positive things about Nintendo products and in the end will lose all creditability for the youtuber because they they say "Product A is a great game" but it is really a terrible game and mislead everyone one who went out and bought the game because they said so.

There could a great game that Nintendo releases that they published but doesn't do any advertisement for themCoughWonderful101Cough. People could have shown off that game and would have shown the game to millions of people who never heard of it and are now interested in buying it but with Nintendo and their policies, people are not going to bother with it as they fear Nintendo will issue a strike to their channel. People in program will have to avoid saying anything bad about the game just to get approved.

Nintendo should just let let's players do their thing and let them earn their 60% from the video revenue (the other 40% goes to Google).



SilentHunter382 commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

I am glad that the scalpers are getting hit by this. Sure the one guy was going to use the money to get a wii u but the vast majority can go screw themself.

I still have my disc copy which I would never trade in (wish we got the metal case over here) but I am glad that people who can't afford to get the game can get it dirt cheap to fully enjoy.
