New Year's Wishlist 2011-12-26 23:36:49
Well Christmas has passed and the new year is coming upon us, 2012. With this event coming around the corner it is time to set pointless goals and achieve none of them. However it is also time to make pointless wishes that game developers aren't going to care about, but hey at least wishing will make you feel better right? So it's a wish list thread... so let's get started.
I wish for a Pokemon Fighting Game
Yeah, Pokemon has always been a fun RPG game. Very simple and perfect for travel. However I don't see why we don't have this transcend into a fighting game? They have everything already set up there all they have to do is give minor tweaks. Like your Pokemon's fighting move set would be determined by what attacks they have and what they learn leveling up. Different types of attacks would do different damage and it would all come full circle. There may be more that needs to be done, but you can't deny that it is at least an interesting idea.
I wish that the Wii U to be successful
Also those who don't like the Wii or Nintendo then you want it to be successful to. Why? Well simply because this console could be make or break for Nintendo. The Wii gave them a lot of money to play with and it seems they've been putting that into the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. Well the Nintendo 3DS is doing okay for right now, no big games have come out for it yet besides Super Mario 3D Land and some remakes, but once more starts coming out it should pick up (also for those bitching about the price drop, Nintendo price drops all their consoles at one point, this is nothing new). So I hope that the Wii U will be successful, because if it is isn't and this does break Nintendo (doubt it) then Nintendo's games will be hitting other consoles. Not a bad thing, but still it will.
I wish the Video Game Forum would be better
Yes things are getting better over time, but it seems that whenever a popular franchise or game is brought up there is always one pessimistic little douche who has to be a downer or complete asshat. Being cautious is one thing, having doubts, and well collected opinions. However why do so many people have to either not have good enough arguments and then talk in circles or makes doubts based on little to no information already? I've made my complaints about the Video Game Forum and I still stand by them. There are great posters here such as Blaze-Heatnix, Auz, Bahamut, and Dean to name a few. Why can't others be like this? This just seems like the General forum, but with topics on Video Games instead of masturbation, cool story bro, and incest reverse shitting.
I wish people would stop bitching about GameStop
Yeah I know that's not gonna happen. We all know gamers have had problems with GameStop employees in the past, bad deals, or problems, and when it comes to trade-ins they end up screwing over the player as well as the developer at the same time. We all know this, so instead of continuously bitching, bring it up at GameStop, complain, threaten not to shop there anymore, boycott. Support your local video game store that isn't a GameStop or EB Games. I have a local one that gives me great deals on my trade-ins as well as a great selection of games to choose from that go all the way back to the Atari 2600. Also try shopping at big box stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy. If you think those places are evil then try flea markets, there are mom and pop game stores there that do trade-ins and offer brand new games as well, there are many options out there if you look hard enough. Remember kids, bitching doesn't always work, in fact it never works it just makes you look like a bitch.
I wish for an HD remake of Resident Evil 2
Hey Capcom. Yeah you been pulling some shit this year haven't you? Well I guess we can forgive you since you gave us Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica on the PS3 and XBOX 360 as downloadable HD titles. However when you decided to come to the Gamecube with Resident Evil 0 you came with a remake of Resident Evil 1. That was cool, oh and you re-released Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 on it as well, but many of us want a full fledged remake in HD of Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 1 was average and didn't age well and by remaking it you made it even better. Resident Evil 2 has aged better than Resident Evil 1 and there is no reason why we shouldn't have this remake yet.
I wish for more love for Sonic nowadays
Yeah this sounds weird coming from a Mario fan, who grew up with Nintendo and never bothered with the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive). However Sonic has been releasing good games, with Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode 1, Sonic Colors, and Sonic Generations. The little blue guy is looking good. However his fanbase are impossible to please even with Sonic Generations. He doesn't seem to be doing too bad. Oh and speaking of him...
I wish for a proper Mario and Sonic crossover
Yeah when Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games came out I thought, okay this is a nice party game it's fun to see and it may be fun to play. Well I got one of those right. It was fun to see, but not to play. Then came Mario and Sonic at the Winter Games. What the fuck Nintendo and SEGA? You both are now friends, having your characters legitimately crossover. Don't you realize the game you people can make now? Better yet, don't you realize how much money it can make? A 2D/3D platformer involving Mario and Sonic, with characters from their respective lands, crossing over? Yeah I know this all sounds like Super Mario Bros. Z, but the concept is indeed genius and would make a wonderful game if done right. I mean come on, for one second take yourself out of a gamer's shoes and into a businessman's shoes. You know this game would sell big and make a lot of money and would be very popular if it was put together well. So what's the problem here?
I wish for Nintendo vs. SEGA
You know I'm getting tired of people always bringing up [fanboy squeal] vs. Capcom. I'm tired of seeing a list of characters from [fanboy squeal] put up against the army of Ryu, Ken, and other Capcom characters for the sake of using a Hadouken on a character from [fanboy squeal]. So instead of making Nintendo vs. Capcom, why not have Nintendo vs. SEGA. Both have characters and mascots that they could use and fill out their rosters with. So this could work out quite well.
I wish for people to go buy Fortune Street for the Wii
You a Nintendo fan? Feeling drab and dreary due to Mario Party? Well then get Fortune Street. It's a combination of Mario Party and Monopoly. I'm not joking. It is quite the fun game and I would like others to really take a look at this game if you're a Wii owner. It has been a game series that Japan has been playing for quite some time and we're just now getting it over here. Trust me I'm sure you'll have fun screwing over people if you're a fan of Monopoly and if you enjoy having fun and don't like the slow pace of Monopoly, then the Mario Party type mini-games will keep you interested.
So there's my wishlist. Will most of it come true? Well probably not. But who knows.
