It has been frequently requested of Andrew and me to post our predictions/hopes/dreams of what would be on a hypothetical Nintendo 64 Classic Console.We both remembered that we have discussed this in the past, and Andrew was kind enough to find that discussion in the 69th episode of Molehill Mountain.
There really isn’t a lot to go on at this time about such a system. If one does arise, there is not likely to be more than 15-20 games on it. Andrew and I both kept our lists to a maximum of 15 titles. One thing that would make such a system tricky is that it supported up to four controllers and the button layout is very different from modern Nintendo controllers.
The first trailer for the first ever live action Pokemon movie launched yesterday and despite other major news yesterday, you will be missed Stan Lee, no one can stop talking about it. From the way the CG pokemon look in this live action world, the voice of Deadpool’s own Ryan Reynolds, to the creepy yet hilarious Mr. Mime, they are just tearing this trailer apart. Yet, despite everything people are saying and writing about this trailer, there is one thing I have yet to see a major gaming journo site talk about, and it is seriously bugging the crap out of me.
Let’s start all the way back in 1967. In February of that year, a pop rock band which went by the moniker of The Turtles released a single, Happy Together. This single went on to top many charts world wide and was released more widely as the title track of The Turtles third album. As a classic rock fan, I have heard this song many many times throughout the years. Yesterday, that song was used to close out Detective Pikachu’s first trailer. Apparently, no one understands why this song stands out, at least why it should stand out.
Video games are having a negative affect on my children!
What? No, I don’t pay attention to what they’re playing, why do you ask?
32:13 – Wacky survey shows parents don’t pay attention to kids’ gaming, notice bad behavior, don’t think it has anything to do with games, took games away anyway, gave them back because kids threw a fit, and fear their kids may be gaming addicts!
