Last part of that. The cancellation was supposedly a rumor, and we're supposed to see the title at E3 this year alongside Animal Crossing Wii. I really hope it's shown, Kirby games were the first ones I ever owned myself. :P
Coolio.

That makes me happy.

Discuss.
"The new Nintendo Game Man, are you man enough to play Super Mario: Mario Kills his Brother, The Legend of Zelda: Links Killing Spree, or Metroid Extermination?
Do you eat nails for breakfast?
Do you s**t literal bricks?

Then this is the console for you!"
You actually said something funny. Though I admit the idea is awesome. I buy it. :lol:

So you'd rather have a portable fighter(eww, fighters should be arcade and console only, unless it is made specifically for the portable, not a port), the weakest MGS game in the series and an FF7 cash-in(though a rather good one), over the best Mario Kart game in the series and a classic mario platformer?(which we haven't seen since mario all-stars' lost levels). Your logic hurts me.
SMDS is basically the (admittely excellent) Mario 64... and Mario Kart DS fails to compare to Mario Kart 64 or DD so that one doesnt even account for anyway, it's online is the saving grace which gets out measured out by Mario Kart Wii anyway (which is very meh tbh, apart from the new Wii Wheel control it doesnt really bring much to an already flagging serie).

The PSP has some excellent games on it which cannot be denied (and I still haven't got to play the new God of War yet), whilst Nintendo just seem to pulling out old franchises out their arse and rehashing them for yet another gimmick. Nintendo this generation seem to have used up nearly all their franchises already, there is some life left in Zelda, perhaps another Mario title now that Galaxy was excellent, a new Starfox game shouldnt go amiss.. but they need to start thinking of new ideas.

And if The Conduit is pushing the Wii, then it really isnt that powerful.

He didn't mean Super Mario 64 DS, he meant New Super Mario Bros.

Very, very, very different.

Nintendo's strength has always been franchises, which they are still creating.

Why do people forget Pikmin?

That franchise is just a few years old and has a lot of potential and while I've only played the first I enjoyed it immensely.

There are a good deal of exciting games coming for the Wii.

Now that I got a job I should really think about getting one.

He was quoting me and I mentioned SM64DS in the first place, not NSMB.

And Pikmin isnt that great..

Maybe he misunderstood you, because I would hardly call SM64DS a "classic Mario platformer", you just said "SMDS" which is open to a lot of interpretation.

And Pikmin is greatness, albeit really weird greatness.

Here is what we need. We need to remove all franchises from every system and start over. No more Mario, Zelda, Mega man, Sonic, Halo, etc. Then we need to Trust bust EA into many smaller companies.

Now guess what we might get if were lucky... ORIGINAL GAMES!

The only Franchises that have not worn themselves out completely are Street fighter and Castlevania. They don't release games that often so the series aren't over saturated.

Smaller and lesser known games are being completely over looked now and it pisses me off. Guilty Gear is a great example. The Guilty Gear series is unheard of even for its small genre (fighters). Everyone just continues playing crappy mortal combat games.

I think that with out the major games that always sell people might look at what smaller publishers make.

That's not a bad idea, but it will never happen, and I don't really want it too.

Despite "over saturation" I still have a lot of fun with Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, and other series, and while I think people should be more receptive to new game series I would be upset if the franchises of today disappeared completely.

Knowing Nintendo, and taking into consideration the advancements in touch screen technology. I would take an educated guess that the next hand-held from Nintendo would look like an e-book, with d-pad(s)/analog stick(s) and about 4 buttons.

Reasons?
The new multi-touch for touch screens is going to make things more interactive, something that is Nintendo's main goal this decade. A bigger screen that could just as easily be split to still work like the DS, albeit a bit distracting but still. I would also say they will still have the cheap protective film on the screen, you know the kind that will scratch easily and make it impossible to see after awhile.

I'm also going with the idea that they'll still us cartridges. Though they will be based more on flash RAM then the good-old ROMs, but hey it's cheaper, and it will be able to hold greater amounts of data then the UMDs that the PSP uses currently.

This is my final prediction.
