    Well… If I was rich as Scrooge McDuck… I would purchase Nintendo, and have them purchase quite a few small companies and studios so they might have more original properties and franchises. I would have a new Mario & Luigi game made, and a new Kid Icarus, too.

    And then I would have Pokemon Red, Blue, Gold, and Silver released on the Virtual Console with special modifications to allow for trading over the Internet and transfering the Pokemon to X and Y through the Bank & Transporter.

    And then Nintendo would start making their own real RPG series called Quest for Legends! Mwahahahaha!!!! Nintendo would be mine! Original properties! More Kid Icarus! Pokemon on Virtual Console for 3DS!

    And then I would see if Nintendo could give Mario and Luigi another brother! He could be named Riloe!

    If I was as rich as Scrooge McDuck I would localize every game that was released in Japan but not in other regions. Then I would collect everything that Nintendo has made. Everything. I would put it all in a museum where people could come and play all of the games and look at all the cool Nintendo stuff.

    TLDR?: Skip to the last paragraph.

    Wow… what a question, the possibilities are endless! For me, the answer is actually pretty easy though.

    As a child, episodes of DuckTales presented some fantastic adventures that sparked my imagination and created wonderful memories. I used to wonder if that was just nostalgia taking hold. (Nostalgia warning: don’t go watch Voltron now, or risk being terribly disappointed.)

    But after watching DuckTales together with my own children, aged 3 and 1, and seeing their love for the show convinced me that it was more. Everyday they start signing together: “DuckTales, woo woo!” and shaking their tails, begging me for an episode to see what will happen.

    Fantasy, science fiction, superheroes, mysteries. You never knew what the next day would bring! Although there are still some fine cartoons for young children today, nothing seems to beat the sense of unknown these classic cartoons offered up.

    So if I were as rich as Scrooge McDuck, my first goal would be to bring back The Disney Afternoon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Disney_Afternoon) to help kids of today develop the same sense of wonder and adventure it built for me!

      And as a side note, anyone who is too young to have seen The Disney Afternoon (but still able to appreciate well-made kids cartoons) should check them out.

      DuckTales, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck… all classic staples for children in the 90s, and just as good today as they were two decades (!!) ago.

      If you prefer something just a bit darker, check out Gargoyles which now has a bit of a cult following.

    Hopefully my White Belt status won’t take me out of the running. I promise, I’ve been a long time reader and Podcast listener! (First with Nintendo Heartcast, and now with Nintendojo FM)

    With my riches, I would go on a full-out nostalgia power trip. My finances would be put to good use in rebooting some dead franchises, and hopefully make Nintendo better off in the end.

    For one, I would purchase the Spyro the Dragon IP from Activision. I would then get together some of the original Insomniac Games team to make a new game, in the vein of the original trilogy. This would be exclusive to the Wii U, naturally. I understand that Spyro used to be an exclusive Playstation title, but maybe we can bank on the nostalgia enough to get people to flip to the Big N.

    Sega would also find themselves pretty busy, with a new F-Zero title to work on, along with a new Super Monkey Ball game based on the first two.

    And why not increase Nintendo third party support while we’re at it? I’m talking ports of Minecraft, GTA V, and the Portal Franchise. Think of all the awesome Gamepad features those games could bring to the table.

    Finally, I’d bribe Masahiro Sakurai into including Geno from Super Mario RPG in the next Smash Bros title. I know I would have myself a new main!

    Well I wouldn’t be entering any more contests since It would be less effort just to go and buy it.

    What would I do?

    I would start my own contest that will have winners get the chance to swim in a replica of Scrooge’s vault. Of course this would be after they sign paperwork freeing me of all responsibility of any injuries inflicted on the participants.

    I would buy Disney, get rid of all current cartoons that all look the same (3D animation) and bring back all of the old classics with new more modern themes. Bring back Dick Tales, Darkwing Duck and etc.. Then, I would buy Nintendo and fund IR&D for the most sophisticated video game console in the world and make Nintendo #1 again. Then since I own Disney and Nintendo we can make combined Star Wars and Star Fox games. And make Nintendo-Disney games. Imagine Mario and Mickey Mouse in the same game. The possibilities are endless. And finally, I would invest in Nintendojo and make the owners of the website into instant millionaires. At which point I would make Nintendojo into a global conglomerate and put IGN and etc… out of business. PSDojo, XBOXDojo and etc…we would all be rich.

    If I was as rich as Scrooge McDuck, I would open up several new indie studios and become an angel investor and invest in only the greatest of ideas! Also, make a throne out of pure Nintendo products.

    Hmmm…. What would I do if I were as rich as Scrooge McDuck? That’s three cubic acres of cash!

    First and foremost, I’d build a money bin. Gotta keep the Beagle Boys & Flintheart Glomgold away from my cash (And Magica De Spell away from my lucky dime!!)

    After that, I’d pursue many philanthropic endeavors involving feeding the hungry, cancer research, and the “Make a Wish Foundation.”

    Then I’d get into some fun Nintendo related spending!

    1. I’d pay to have Ducktales 2 for NES given the “remastered” treatment. (It’s a great game too!)

    2. I’d buy one of those ridiculously rare gold Ducktales NES carts that came in a Ducktales lunchbox that Capcom was giving away to the press as part of their promotion.

    3. I’d have Disney finally release “Ducktales Volume 4″ on DVD which contains the later episodes with Bubba Duck and Gizmo (Sure, they’re not as good, but I’m a completionist!)

    4. I’d rent Gyro Gearloose’s time-tub and go back in time to persuade Nintendo not to name their current console the “Wii-U.” (I’m a teacher and I hear from students all the time that their parents assume it’s just an overpriced tablet controller for their Wiis.)

    5. I’d improve the rewards offered from Club Nintendo in all territories (or at least make it not so difficult to snag the good/limited stuff.)

    6. I’d improve the Virtual Console on both the Wii-U and 3DS. Examples include bringing GBA, N64, and Gamecube into the mix. Getting more 3rd parties involved, and releasing a decent number of titles each week. Where’s Yoshi’s Island? Starfox? The original NES Ducktales? This could go on and on…..

    7. I’d bring back Nintendo Power Magazine. Being an original subscriber to Nintendo Power since 1988, I was hoping my sons would be able to experience the monthly mailbox treat that was Nintendo Power. They now receive Nintendo Force (or “NF”) which is great, but it’s not Nintendo Power.

    8. I’d make Metroid and Mario equivalents of “Hyrule Historia” (with Darkhorse handling western publishing since they did such a fantastic job with Hyrule Historia.) Then they could branch out into other Nintendo franchises.

    9. I’d expand on the Symphony Of The Godess Tour: More cities, more concerts, maybe even a spin-off to include Nintendo music from other franchises. I went when it came to Portland, Oregon and I can tell you, it was the night of my life! (besides my wedding and two sons being born of course :)

    10. I’d lobby Nintendo to make “Nintendo-Kart.”

    11. I’d create a real Nintendoland (possibilities are endless.) I want to take my family to Hyrule, Zebes, and the Mushroom Kingdom more than Disney’s Frontier Land or Tomorrow Land.)

    12. I would buy Rare and attempt to restore them to their former glory (Perfect Dark re-boot done right, Jet Force Gemini, Banjo collect-a-thon style platformer, RC Pro-Am!

    13. Lastly, I’d finally be able to afford used copies of Xenoblade Chronicles and Metroid Prime Trilogy from Gamestop!

    If I were as rich as Scrooge McDuck, I would scour the globe for working old arcade games and consoles and create a Video Game museum to house them that any gamer could come to free of charge. Then I’d seek out small studios and fund a bunch of Independent games so that the world could experience not just old games, but new games as well.

    If I were as rich as Scrooge McDuck, I would:

    Pay off all of my taxes.

    Pay off all of my student loans.

    Pay off my car loan.

    Pay for my house in full.

    Buy a new car in full.

    Max out my IRA.

    Max out my daughter’s college saving plan.

    Put $100,000 each in three different savings accounts and three different checking accounts.

    Put $264,000 in one forex account and $144,000 each in two other forex accounts.

    Put $5,000,000 each into five different government notes.

    Put the rest into a US Treasury mutual fund.

    Live off half of the interest and let the account continue to grow.

    Subsidize Nintendo’s next console so that they can make it more powerful than Sony and Microsoft’s next systems without compromising any new features they want to include, while still selling it at an affordable price for customers. I would ensure that Nintendo’s console in the ninth generation will be the most powerful console, priced competitively, and feature everything that Nintendo wants it to have. As a reference for this generation, it would be like a console with the tech and video streaming/sharing specifications of a PS4, but with all of the features of the Wii U including a GamePad controller and Miiverse integration.

    There is only one thing I would do: Pay Noah Ward and Evan Campbell whatever it would take to bring back the Heartcast!

    Well, first off I’d take care of the obligatory things like paying off the house, setting money aside for retirement, kid’s college, all the Miss USA ideals (fight hunger/poverty, cure sicknesses, etc.), etc… but once that was out of the way here’s a few things I may do:

    •Give the Nintendojo staff a huge raise! ; )
    •Buy Nintendo and redirect their focus back to more traditional/core gamers so they can better compete with the likes of Sony and Microsoft. This would include things such as:
    o Create a true sequel to Super Mario 64 with a more modern “open world” feel (at least for the “hub world”
    o Hire the Project M team (projectmgame.com if you haven’t heard of it) to come in and make sure the next Smash Bros. game is amazing
    o Bring Star Fox back from the dead with a new game in the vein of Star Fox 64
    o Create a follow up to Super Metroid
    o Make a Zelda game that is grittier and is more open world (i.e.: the original and to a degree Link Between Worlds). Also, maybe look at adding some more RPG elements as “optional” elements such as crafting or skill trees.
    o Speaking of Zelda, I’d also give Ocarina of Time an HD remake so we can all relive that amazing game with beautiful, fluid graphics.
    o Create a new EarthBound/Mother game up to modern RPG standards but with all the Nintendo charm and special touch that made the originals loved as they are. Ness FTW!
    o The Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series are great and all but I’d direct them to create a true soul sequel to Super Mario RPG… and perhaps a reappearance of Geno and maybe Mallow
    o And hey, why not, how about some new franchises?
    •And last but not least, give everyone who responded a copy of DuckTales: Remastered!

      We’re getting Ducktales? Woo Hoo! Oh wait… did that sound scripted? Well, it honestly was my first reaction.

      I kid you not: just last week my wife and I talked about buying this game for our kids (and me too) this Christmas, but we passed because it just didn’t fit into our budget/priorities. They will be super excited to actually play the game instead of just watching the eShop trailer over and over.
