*price is right S H A M E H O R N*

It’s TUESDAY TUESDAY TUESDAY here at modus operandi dot com. Three pages left in the chapter!

It’s common knowledge by this point that Nintendo didn’t get its start with video games. In fact, the company’s origins date back to the late 1800’s, founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi, who responded to the uplifting of the ban on foreign trading cards to deter gambling with illustrated Hanafuda cards.

As the years progressed, Nintendo continued to diversify, By the 1950’s, after a few licensing deals (including one with Disney), they began exploring what the Nintendo name would mean entering into the second half of the century, with things like instant rice, taxi services, a TV company, and even a love hotel chain. Seriously. That squeaky clean image falters fast, especially when surrounded by rumors of affiliation with Japanese gangs and mafia — though, thankfully, those ventures would largely fail as they tried and stumbled to enter the toy market with the Love Tester and Ultra Machine, to name a few. It wouldn’t be until the Magnavox Odyssey that they would begin carving out a niche as a games developer.

Speaking of love hotels, Nintendo also owns the rights to two Mario-based porn titles, titled “Super Hornio Brothers,” in order to prevent their sale and distribution, in order to maintain its own image.

Which makes sense, because around the same time, they were also building a prototype of a Nintendo Entertainment System-powered knitting peripheral — no I’m not kidding. It’s never been certain why they shelved the unit, but it’s not hard to imagine they couldn’t figure out how to properly sell the peripheral and its accompanying software to the general public.

Bob would have been all over that knitting peripheral.

What a weird Nintendo Direct.

If I had my guess, the new 3DS’s exclusive games will likely just be for a very small amount of games like the Xenoblade title and not necessarily to represent a new swath of titles. Sort of like the Expansion Pack for the N64, it’ll rely on more developers actually utilizing it, and if some publishers’ reactions to the Wii U not having as many units as they’d like is any indication, we’re not likely to see more than a handful overall. (Hell, EA already bowed out of the handheld market entirely, and rightfully so after a piss-poor showing.)

I do like the Amiibo integration, though; it seems like a smart upgrade for those who’ve already settled on collecting the figures. And the C-Stick, while looking a bit uncomfortable to use, is pretty dang necessary. (Plus? Extra buttons!) The biggest thing is the eye-tracking mechanism for the 3D viewing; the limited range of the 3D scope makes for a really annoying experience on vanilla 3DSes if you actually enjoy 3D, and can contribute to some bad headaches, so making it a little more natural is a solid idea.

I can imagine a lot of people viewing this new system as bad timing, as titles like Pokemon X/Y and New Leaf sold a bunch of units only last year, and no one’s ready to plunk down on a new model quite yet (especially since the 3DS only launched three and a half years ago, making this the shortest turnaround for a handheld upgrade from Nintendo yet). It’ll be interesting to see how they handle pricing and marketing for the new version, though, because you know people are gonna be irate until Nintendo acknowledges that a lot of people won’t be ready for a change without some kind of bonus or reward.

Besides the point: Really? Xenoblade? Then again, I’m not sure how well it did in Japan, and while it’s a great game (seriously it’s one of those titles that’s right up my alley), I never expected it to go beyond the singular title. And I thought we were already getting a sequel on the Wii U, so color me surprised that there’s another entry in the series. Maybe we can get Last Story on the 3DS as well?

I’ve been gettin’ real involved in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure lately, and have read up through most of Stardust Crusaders. UNFORTUNATELY, there aren’t really any decent scans of some of the later volumes, so I am playing the HD release of the old PSX/DC/Arcade fighter in the meantime while I continue my search.

Kinda in love with this series.
