The next, next generation. By me.
« on: January 24, 2006, 11:24:57 am »
May 15, 2011.

Nintendo has proved the power of innovation with it's past console, and now it penetrates a market three times as big as Sony and Microsoft.
It's newest console now uses semitransparent glasses that enable 3D viewing without making players feel oblivious or dizzy, a new controller similar to its previous generations, only now utilizing more mulitpurpose buttons, more forming to the hand, and able to adapt to any type of holding position.  It will be no more powerful than the original revoluition, only featuring more web capabilities and a larger flash drive.
Nintendo also announced that it would begin selling basic hardware and software developement kits to the public, including several targeted at youth.
Five years ago, such actions would be entirely unheard of.

Sony and Microsoft have dug further into the "hardcore market," and now have multi-purpose media computers that can manage entire entertainment centers.  They are compatible with Nintendo's system, run emulators for the majority of games in existence, and can even use a special version of Windows.  They start at $700.


I'm toothy22 on Steam. Someone needs to invite me into the GS clan!

I've always thought it would be increadibly cool to use something like the Nintendo ON in conjunction with the new Revolution controller. Culd you imagine how awesome a new Metroid Prime game would be in real 3D?

Is Nintendo actually made the Nintendo ON they would win at life.

Anyone have the video? I lost it in my last reformat.

Also, in the video, the "full" version available for download always cut off at the Mario part, right?

Yeah, I'm pretty sue it did; it's been a while since I've seen the video.

On a side note: I've just started Metroid Prime 2 (I started a couple days ago) and I have to say I am enjoying it every bit as much as the original Metroid Prime. Playing this'll make the wait for Hunters much easier!

Oh man, Echos was AMAZING.

The bosses in that game are insane.

INSANE!

And really really hard.

I'm just at the part where I'm going to recover the Luminoth's weapon. In other words, I've only been to Dark Aether once, so I'm still pretty early in the game.

But man is it awesome! I can't wait to see some of the 'real' bosses.

I remember how hard the final boss in Metroid Prime 1 was (I won't say who, I dont want to spoil the game) but man was it awesome when I defeated it!

Hoo hoo! The real bosses are a pain in the ass, all the 'guardians' go through about 4 phases where you have to fight them differently. Thats assuming you can get past the morph-ball guardian. That thing is a bitch.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

So far I've only killed 2 Guardians, the Dark Guardian and the Jump Guardian.

I have to say though, I first thought that traveling to Dark Aether would just be a boring rerun of everything in Light Aether, but when I look around, the places in Dark Aether aren't even recognizable!

You do get a creepy feeling though walking through the dark world, just because it's so twisted and empty.

BTW: I just got the Dark Beam.

I thought the light and dark beams were really lazy, the dark beam is basically the ice beam from prime 1 but with a slight homing capability and limited ammo, the light beam is just a suped up plasma beam... with limited ammo. Oh well, the annialator beam isnt too bad when you finally get it...

I just got the light beam. It seems more like a mix of the Plasma Beam and the Wave Beam, depending on how you fire it.

It took me about 5 tries to kill that thing. Each time I learned how to kill another stage, you get two sweet rewards for killing it (woohoo). But then you have to collect 9 hidden keys (Noooooooooooooo!).

Anyways... speaking of the next, next generation. I have lately been wondering what would happen to video games after they achieved perfect graphical quality. Whether you think that would look real or surreal is up to you. I should think that after that they would start cramming truckloads of content into the game. For example, in a game that involved a city, you would be able to go in every building, every office floor, every bathroom ( ;)), every parking garage and EVERYTHING would look perfect. The entire environment would be fully destructable without any debris or bead bodies ever vanishing, but being taken to a dump or morgue by NPCs with 365 day, malleable, schedules. Individually. Every window pane, light bulb, drawer of pajamas, chainsaw, could be picked up and interacted with somehow. Every one of the several hundred thousand people in the city would be interactable, killable, and every action would have a realistic outcome.

Now this is just one city. Imagine an entire country. A Continent. A planet. A solar system. A UNIVERSE. Video games will go on as long as humankind, and so will it's advancement. There are literally no boundaries.

I'm getting goosebumps just reading what I wrote...
