    @James. You should definitely get PSZero. It plays like PSO but the story is very throwback/nostalgia to the original 4. It almost feels like if PSO was on Saturn instead of Dreamcast. Its good unlike Universe and the PSP entries in the series. PS is one of my favorite series so I would love to see it continue, but not as Universe. Glad you are enjoying them.

    Nintendo should moneyhat Epic to do an exclusive franchise. Gears of War was a huge success for Microsoft. I think a Nintendo published Epic game could be a huge deal for them.

      Ahaha, I actually like the PSP entry! What I dislike is the difficulty in PSZero in finding people to play with, especially now– well, mostly it’s because I don’t have any friends who played PSZero, but with Phantasy Star Online on GameCube I managed to get people over at my house to at least try it with splitscreen. Many an hour was spent like that.

    I guess the reason you have download the videos is (1) so you can take them on the go and (2) for those who have bad internet connection (like me; I’ve never made it through a full 3D trailer on the eShop). So at that I’m thankful. But yes, Considering I’ve been able to download all the E3 videos, Nintendo should have had more than four. Maybe let you pick a chose how many you wanted.

    Movie trailers are okay, regardless of which ones they are; you can’t expect them to always be the best movies, but at least we get to see what’s coming out. Yeah, that Dino video sucked, but I actually kinda liked that Sunday Jog one, kinda cute.

    But if this is going to work, it cannot be hand-picked by one person, even (especially?) if it is Reggie himself. A nice video board that picks them, and I’d say 8 to 10, if we’re going off of the E3 collection. Updated every week. Movie trailers, game trailers, maybe a few music videos (and enough with OK GO; he’s cool, but we need more). At any rate, as long as we have a decent variety, that way, there has to be a few good ones in there.

    Best Possible Scenario

    When the XBOX, PS2, & GCN were out, multiplatform games were developed using the PS2 as the base console from which to port to the other platforms. The PS2 was the least powerful of the three; however, that did not hinder the development of those multiplatform games.

    Currently, the 360, PS3, & Wii are out. Multiplatform games are developed using the 360 as the base console from which to port to the other platforms. However, the Wii does not receive most of these multiplatform games because the hardware is not powerful enough run them without significantly changing the games. The 360 is less powerful than the PS3; however, that does not hinder the development of those multiplatform games. Actually, many of the ports look or play better on the 360 than they do on the PS3 because they are better optimized for the base console that they are developed on.

    When the Wii U comes out, multiplatform games will continue to be developed using the 360 as the base console from which to port to the other platforms. However, the Wii U will receive the best versions of those multiplatform games because of additional features that will be added to take advantage of the new controller. Also, do to the touted similarities with and ease of porting from the 360 to the Wii U, the performance problems that the PS3 ports would have will be replaced by performance enhancements for the Wii U such as running in native 1080p and at a solid 60fps rate.

    When the Wii U, XBOX720, & PS4 are out, multiplatform games will be developed using the Wii U as the base console from which to port to the other platforms. The Wii U will be the least powerful of the three; however, that will not hinder the development of those multiplatform games. Likely, many of the ports will look or play better on the Wii U than on the other platforms because they will be better optimized for the base console that they will be developed on.

    Okay, so I know there are probably at least 3 other places I can post this, but I want to make sure this will be heard on the show, so I’m putting here.

    I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about this 3DS price drop and Ambassador program. My two cents are as follows:

    I bought a launch day 3DS and I am gosh darn proud of it! People keep trying to compare the 3DS and its situation to other consoles, but that’s besides the point. If there is one thing we know about nintendo, its that they make good games. And plenty have been announced to come out by next E3. There is ALOT more to be excited about for 3DS’s year one than with any other system. Probably more than I’ve ever looked forward to on my PSP during its lifetime. I think the only real difference between DS and 3DS is Nintendo’s confidence in their platform. Nintendo was ready to pull the rug out from under the DS at any moment, maintaining GBA as ‘the second pillar’. With 3DS, on the other hand, Nintendo, dropped DS almost completely, as soon as 3DS came out, which was made apparent by their pricing. Now, Nintendo realizes that a console is suckish until proven awesome by developers and consumers in the court of … commerce(?) (sorry, clumsy pun)

    As someone who missed the NES era completely and was too busy playing Spongebob games on his GBA when it was released, I missed most of these gems and I’m glad I’ll have an easy way to play them soon enough. Now if only they would make one of those GBA titles Mother 3.
