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).

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.

SilentHunter382 commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

So this was the reason why many of the new 3ds games have the registration of their codes ending on the 31st of march (Europe). Looks like I will have to use the rest of my codes and see if their is anything I want to get.

Anyway I will miss you club Nintendo.

SilentHunter382 commented on Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars Due in Ma...:

Love seeing Nintendo doing this. There have been many games I bought on the PSN store for the reason that I could play it on my ps3/ps4 and on my vita as well at no extra cost.

@dandantheman100
I agree and anyone who has bought a vc game on the 3ds and the Wii u should be reimbursed with the cost of which ever game they bought second. I wouldn't count it if you have the game on your 3ds because of the Ambassador program and the bought it on the Wii U or got the game for 30c on the wii u with the sales and then bought the game on the 3ds later.

SilentHunter382 commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

It's a great idea and the prices are fair (the current sale price for SMG2 is a steal) but since I already own it I am going to pass on it.

I hope to see some hard to get games come onto the systems like Xenoblade Chronicles (I already have it) so people who can't afford to get the game can get it easily and at a good price.

SilentHunter382 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition Promotion...:

No email for me. I was really disappointed I didn't get one but there may be a reason I didn't get one.

About 2 or 3 years ago I won a 3ds from club Nintendo and just maybe be the people who won that competition are not allowed to get this 3ds or I just thinking of excuses for not getting an email. XD

SilentHunter382 commented on Little Mac's amiibo Appears to Have Actually B...:

Still mad that he is the only one I don't have. Argos never stocked him on the day of wave 2 and that goes for the same for smyths and gamestop for me.

I still find it funny that out of the 17 I currently own, Little Mac is the one I wanted the most as he is my main in smash. :(

SilentHunter382 commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

Completely forgot about the promo but since I bearly bought anything digitally on my Wii U. I don't even have enough points to even get a €5 discount. Ah well since I forgot about the promo it doesn't bother me really.

If the promo was linked with my 3ds on the other hand then I would have alot of points.

SilentHunter382 commented on Discontinued amiibo Figures Could Be Released ...:

I have the last 3 I needed of wave 1 on reserve and only Captain Falcon in wave 2 in Argos. I would have gotten little mac but I can't find him anywhere.

On Topic. Most people who want the amiibo want them for the collection portion, not a card form but I don't hate the idea and would help people who want to use the amiibo for use with games. If you are going to do that you need to make them much much cheaper then the figurines. A €5 a card would be fair.

SilentHunter382 commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

@AwesomeReshiram Nope I haven't watched it either. Only reason I haven't watched it that I don't go out of my way to watch musical movies. Which is funny since some of the movies I loved (and still do) are musical ones.

The last musical I went to see was Sweeney Todd and even then I didn't know it was a musical going into it. It was more on the spot thing as one of my friends wanted to see it and I went with her.

Some of the did ok but at least they weren't stuck up. Thought the funniest part had to be your one who took her a while before she knew she could shoot.

Overall it was enjoyable and was proud of one of them at least making it to bombman. Though I found it odd they would start with bombman even though I always started with cutman.

SilentHunter382 commented on Nintendo's New Response: Some amiibo "Likely" ...:

@FX102A "I'm doing my best in limiting my purchases but the problem is when you get one from one series you need the rest (i.e get Mario and your inclined to get Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, Bowser & Rosalina)."

lol this is what happened to me. I only wanted link and little mac but once I got link I wanted to get every amiibo.
