This. This is what we want. Well, not Okami specifically, just the idea of it, where we can walk into a store, pick up a game and know it spans the divide between three PlayStation consoles.
When first announced, Nintendo's line of "New Play Control" games seemed like a great idea. Repackage games from the criminally unloved GameCube, then sell them onto a massive audience that missed them first time around. So what's happened?
You know, reading that list of "lost" Tatsunoko vs Capcom characters the other day got me thinking: there's plenty of room out there for more Capcom vs XXXX games.
Yesterday, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata made the first public mention of the company's plans for a successor to the wildly-popular DS handheld. So we know, vaguely, what Nintendo want from the console. That's fine. Here's what we want.
The current DSi screen is 3.25 inches. Rumor has it that Nintendo will be releasing a new DS with a 4 inch screen. What would that look like? Time to bust out the ruler and additional screen.
It's not a movie, and as far as we know it will probably never be one. But, what if it was. What if! Would it be as lighthearted as the game? Or would it be scary as all hell. Let's fantasy. Let's.
There's no Contra in Duck Hunt, but let's imagine there was. Let's fantasy. Let's.
Street Fighter IV does not have old school Street Fighter III sprites. But what if it did? What would it look like? Over at the Shoryuken forums, steamboy33 thinks it would look like this.
Let's say, for snots and giggles, that Professor Layton was a NES. What would it look like? Perhaps, just perhaps, it would look something like this.
On the one hand, Sony's decision to re-release God of War 1 & 2 on Blu-Ray seems selfish. A chance to force many people to re-purchase a game they already own. But on the other, it sets an interesting precedent.
Do you dream about things? We don't. Dreaming is for dreamers. We prefer to spend our spare time thinking merely of things that should be, but are not.
