Pickles Recommmends: Show Me Your News!


I just wanted to plug in my favorite podcast of all time, “Show Me Your News!”. It started out as a podcast on Smashboards that recapped and talked about Super Smash Bros. Brawl, starring Youko and SamuraiPanda. And it was pretty awesome. Now it is about gaming in general. And it is still pretty awesome. They recently released their 100th episode, after 4 and a half years. They also have a really great twitter account!

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.

The Next Mario Game (Mario 256?)


Happy Single’s Awareness Day Everyone! 😛 Here’s a pretty epic idea for the next 3D Mario game:

Ever since SMG1 came out, I’ve been wondering what the next Mario could be like. After the space-travel journey of SMG, the FLUDD-venture of SMS, the multi-world excusion of SM64/DS, the retro revivial of New SMB, and the multiplayer romp in New SMB Wii, what next? This.

In this game, Bowser has taken control of the multiverse and is now threatening to erase all of existence! He tampers to create his own universe in his image, and it causes a shockwave in the rest of the multiverse, shattering the Great ___ into tiny shards, aka Star Substitutes, across 5 different universes. the generic Gatekeeper of the Universes guy enlists the help of Mario to collect all 175 or so “shards” (stars) and restore balance to the multiverse!

So Mario will travel through different universes in 7 different lands of the ME: the central Mushroom Kingdom, the tropical and deserty coasts of Sarasaland, Yoshi’s Island, Nimbus Land, the peaks of a generic snow-land, the deep forests that Luigi’s Mansion resides in, and some generic mountains. There’s 5 alternate universe that Mario can travel through:

-The normal one
-Dune: A climate change causes the entire world to become hot and arid, mostly deserts, volcanoes, and very few large settlements of civilization. Plus, if you’re not in the shade, the sunlight can cause damage to you over time!

-Urbania: Wario took control of the stock market and he now rules over the entire world, financially. Almost the whole world is industialized into a city, a factory, or a tourist attraction, and the people are overworked, underpaid, and are just plain rude. So it’s like NYC across the whole ME!

-Power-Up: A huge shippment of items crashes in the middle of the MK one day and the items combined all create a world that makes almost every single character a huge superhero with tons of powers. an epic world, but very volitale, and very dangerous, as the enemies are powered too.

-Prosperity: Peace. The world is perfect; everyone’s nice, everything’s free, and there are no enemies. But this world has almost unobtainable stars, and thought everyone’s nice, they’re TOO helpful, and they’re not very good at helping in the first place.

So Mario can travel to each universe at will, through a circular menu like the ones in Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Origins for console. This is what the circle would be like if the normal universe was at the top-center of the pentagon-shaped menu:

-Prosperity
-Power-up
-NORMAL
-Dune
-Urbania

The other feature is that, like that one XBLA game with the pies and the silent movie thing, Mario can preform up to 15 seconds of actions, then travel back in time and cooperate with himself to solve puzzles and easily get stars. But when travelling back, he must go to an adjacent alt. universe in the pentagon, to make for extreme puzzles! And it also means there can be up to 3 Marios at once!

The Power-ups for Mario in this game are Mini Mushroom, Mega Mushroom, a Star Rod (Can be used for distance attacks and like a grappling hook), and Metal Mario. But there are multiple characters, too! Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi are all playable! Their abilities are much like their SM64DS selves’, except Waluigi. He’s…. different.

So the game isn’t really that mission based like previous games. Each land has 10 main shards, two for each universe, and one “Grand Shard” for each Universe. But that’s only 77 stars! The other 75 or so come from exploring the universes and using your time/5th-dimensional abilities, as well as your power-ups, to get the rest! There are a ton of characters to meet, the most for any Mario game.

The 5 bosses to get the “Grand Shards”(They’re all Evil Kings that work with Bowser):
-Goomba King for Normal
-Piranha Lord Waluigi from Power-up for Dune
-King Boo, posessesing the King of the Mushroom Kingdom in Prosperity
-Wario: CEO of WarioWare for Urbania, of course
-Evil Scientist guy from Dr. Mario 64 for Power-up.

The final boss, Bowser, is actually an all-new universe: What the ME would be like if Bowser conquered it all for real, and Mario gets trapped in there, not able to travel through time or 5th dimension until after beating Bowser. There are 5 Shards and 1 Grand shard in all. The final boss fight will be the best one. EVER.

Extras: The 20 or so remaining shards come from bonus one-shot universes, usually straight-up platforming and sometimes set in crazy places like Good Egg Galaxy. Crossovers will occur. Definitely.

– The Bonus “9th World” is Rainbow Road. It’s a land, not a universe, so there’s tons of time puzzles, and since it’s nearly in space, it’s unaffected by changing the universes.

-After getting all 175+ Stars, you can play through the game again as PEACH, which makes for a completely new experience!

Any more ideas/c+c to this idea would be helpful.

Okay What the heck people


Thse are the top web searches through which people found my site:

nightwolf mortal kombat 4, shadow contempt for sonic, funny sonic and shadow comics, sonic and amy comics, eggman shadow married
