There is a Dearth of Content on Here…


…And the reason for that is because I am currently making or participating in a ton of things! Things being Homestuck fan adventures and such.

-Electionstuck is a parody of Presidential Campaigns with Homestuck characters. Expect very few author tracts though, as you might expect from any sort of politically-charged story; I don’t care about convincing other people of my views. Not in a story like this. I care about writing some awesome crap, which is what will be done.

-Complacency of the Learned: The Novel is being made by my friends over on the MSPA Clubhouse at http://tinyurl.com/mspaIRC We are trying to make the full 6-novel long series that Rose wrote in the Alpha Universe!

-[S] Rex Duodecim Angelus: A flash made for the completely awesome Homestuck song, Rex Duodecim Angelus ( http://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/rex-duodecim-angelus ), in which the Trolls battle the Black King, an event only mentioned in the comic. It has been in production for almost a year now; hopefully it will be finished soon! I wrote or helped write much of the flash’s storyboards.

-Pikmin Sleuth: Problem Sleuth…. plus Pikmin…..
????????????????????????

-Also, I may continue on my Homestuck fan fiction “Slumber” soon.

2011 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 48 trips to carry that many people.

wow I only had 3,000 views on this entire site this year. Best hipster blog ever.

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.
