Just a little thing I wrote that amused me a lot 😛

Memories of Player’s Guides


Do you guys remember, way back when Player’s Guides were the way to go, before GameFAQs had so many reliable guides? Great times.

One of my favorite Player’s Guides was the one for Animal Crossing. I loved looking at all the furniture and clothes and tried to formulate what I would use to design my house with, and how much money I needed. Looking at all of the NES games was awesome too; My cousin (who was like 14 and I was 9), brother and I spent most of the summer of 2004 playing Animal Crossing, trying to find all of the NES games. We eventually got them all, some via codes, like the ones that you could only find on the island, because we didn’t have a GBA or link cable back then. We never got Punch-Out!! or Soccer, though I think I did end up making a custom town and got a present that had Punch-Out!! via one of those special delivery codes.

In games like Paper Mario and Yoshi’s Story, near the end of the book, it would list all of the enemies of the game. Those were just so fun to look at. Also with Paper Mario, it listed every item combination that you could make via cooking, and I actually ended up making almost all of them, including an Ultra Jelly, which took an Ultra Shroom and Jelly can, two of the rarest items in the game, and combined them to make an item that restored 50 HP and 50 FP. I was perfectly happy with myself 😛

But no guide maker can ever top Versus Books Perfect Guides. Those were the absolute best player’s guides ever and I was so sad when I found out they don’t make them anymore.

But my all-time favorite is definitely Earthbound. The whole thing was written partly like a travel guide, showcasing each of the cities and sometimes having a fake newspaper article about something that you were going to have to fix upon reaching said town. The actual guide portion was really fun too because it was usually one huge map of the town/road/building with little markers that had tips of what to do. On the right side of those pages, it talked about the enemies you were going to have to face, along with a clay model of about half of them. I loved the clay models so much that it’s probably the reason I love pre-rendered graphics so much today. That and Clay Figther 63 1/3 of course 😛 But I really would sit down and just read th4 Earthbound guidebook, sometimes from cover to cover, whenever I went to my grandparents’ house. I probably read it twice as much as I ever actually played the game, considering I’ve never even gotten past Moonside 😛

I’m hoping that Player’s Guides make more of a return in the coming years. Games are finally getting super-hard again, as you can see with Donkey Kong Country Returns, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (well it has less save points than Radiant Dawn at least :P)

Project Cafe Idea: Using the 3DS as a controller?


http://boards.ign.com/nintendo_wii_lobby/b8270/201633357/r201645364/?statusId=PostReplySuccess

think that Nintendo will indeed implement the 3DS as a limited controller. The only reason it couldn’t be a full controller is the lack of a second control stick, but we don’t even know the specifics about the controller; there could be no buttons at all or something for all we know.

But it would be VERY wise feature 3DS connectivity. Think of it; Controllers are going to be above $50, maybe even $60. Even when the economy recovers, not that many people are going to want to spend that much money on over 2 controllers. Being able to use a handheld that you already own would be extremely beneficial, and it could even drive sales up for people that are on the fence about buying the 3DS, but want to buy it for its controller capabilities.

The Next Nintendo Console– Idea


3D (no glasses? Maybe by 2020)
Blu-Ray
Online Experience much like a Social Network/Xbox Live
Extremely accurate motion control
Steam-esque online purchasing/updating/patching system
Firmware updates all the time
Those are “duh”.
1TB CDs if possible, or at least 30GB single-layered?
PC integration for media, internet, programs, ect.
Harddrives at 600GB+
Backwards compatible with Wii/GCN

Older cartridge-based consoles can plug into the new console itself, so that consoles that don’t use the colored-wires like the NES can be used on newer TVs. Also, you can actually WRITE the data/save data of the cartridge and put it on a special Disk, or onto the HDD, though at a price due to royalties and overall profit gain. It can only be done a limited amount of times per cart, because each time it’s done, the Wii2 will write data onto the cartridge that will not allow it to be copied more than, say 10-15 times total. This way all games of the past can be preserved legally, not just those put on Virtual Console. Like even certain pirated games could be copied.

Flash Drive-based games: 16GB flash drive costs $20. $64GB is $100GB. These prices will only decrease as time goes on, and by 2013, most likely, the 64GB will be down to $50 or lower. But seeing how much memory can be put on these, games could be produced on them instead of on Disk! Cartridge gaming could come back somewhat with Flash Drives.

Smartphone/3DS integration:
they can connect with apps, games, and the handheld devices could even be used as controllers for certain games.

Webcam/Augmented reality can improve to the point where Kinect-type gaming can take place in much smaller enviornments than the 3-foot space needed currently.

The old periphrials will be enhanced tenfold: The Balance Board, if not a pack-in with the console itself, will be extremely cheap, nearing $30 by itself. A new version would be released as well, but the differences would be minor.

6+ Players per console! If Rock Band 3 can do 7, I don’t see why there can’t be as many for regular games. Not splitscreen; that would be way too small a screen, but at least for party games like Mario Party, where it would only benefit the game.

The controller: I think that it could be about the size of the Wiimote now, but a little taller and quite a bit wider, but it is made mostly of a touch screen. The B button is still there, but it is much smaller and thinner. Otherwise though, there are no buttons. This way there can be ANY BUTTON LAYOUT YOU WANT. O__O The touch screen could even act as its own screen. Example: Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. To play this you would need to have 4 GBAs connected to the GCN as controllers. Think of these new Wiimotes AS the GBAs, ableit much more advanced. The screen would be much like the Kindle in its low graphical power to retain relative cheapness, though it can play 8 and 16-bit games while someone else is playing something completely different. Yes this controller has a 16-bit processor 8) For those people who absolutely need the control stick (that would include me), there will be an add-on to the controller, packed in WITH the controller itself (+one with the console duh) that includes 2 control sticks, the Triggers/bumpers, and two new buttons on the back(I don’t understand why they never did that before). Here’s a reference for those who aren’t following:

That’s as far as I got in my idea. I’m not sure how much of this will be possible by Winter 2012 so that Nintendo can release a console that is less than $350, but the controller would be the most important aspect of this console. That and Blu-Ray/600+GB HDD of course.
