We need a general thread to discuss this upcoming console. Here are my personal list of Wishes and WMG I hope that it has (feel free to share):
Wish: List of games I hope that the Nintendo 3DS includes
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night shall stay me from picking my 3DS on release day.
I know that this is wishful thinking, but I hope that eventually there's a Silent Hill game on it. Silent Hill 3DS: Now skullfucking you in an extra dimension.
Wow, looks like I'll be able to shelve my flashcart sooner than I thought (Why yes I do think that the 3DS' ability to do game installs is freaking awesome) Or not... I really hope that the new Paper Mario game is one of the launch titles...
Needs a 3D DokiDokiMajoShinpan
Oh, and a 3D Lost Magic, perhaps a 3D sequel to The World Ends with You as well.
What games would specifically go well with 3D? Oh, Izuna and Shiren roguelike games I guess.
Anyone have any links to videos or trailers that showcases the console's 3D? Like seeing the thing in action in 3D?
On the other hand, I heard rumors that it's gonna be pretty ungodly expensive as well.
Why yes I do think that the 3DS' ability to do game installs is freaking awesome
I think you're misunderstanding the feature. What the installations allow you to do is use Tag Mode features even if the game isn't in the slot. I doubt it'll let you actually play the games without the game card, except maybe demos.
Video won't play, had to find other videos...
Kinda pissed that I can't see the 3D though. Dammnit....I wanna see 3D in a handheld without the gay glasses!
I wonder how many games will have jiggle physics incorporated? Hmmm...."The Legend of Zelda: The Princess's Jiggle"!
Unless it's Doki Doki Majo Shinpan (which I like specifically because of how...potentially "offensive" it could be to most people around me, and innovatively it makes use of the touchscreen), I'm generally not too big a fan of sexually charged games for the sake of them being sexually charged...if I want those games, I'd play an Eroge instead...or download Rapelay as a silent Take That to Straw Feminists.
I like fanservice in normal games that usually doesn't have or need fanservice...and not make it subtle.
Like Legend of Zelda where Zelda wore something stripperiffic. Or Resident Evil with those alternate costumes.
Fanservicey games for the sake of fanservice? Unless it's the game mentioned above or have other merits, not interested.
You know, they should make a Queen's Blade game for DS or 3DS!
Or Bangai-O! game in 3D. Imagine dodging a bullet hell in 3D!
In fact, does it exist? A 3D Bullet Hell. And none of those cheap crap, like "blocking", or moments of invulnerability when you dodgeroll.
I'm still completely serious when I say I want a Hey You Pikachu remake or rerelease. The mic's built in, so it'd be less of an issue than with the Wii Virtual Console...
Some kind of Virtual Console Portable would rock, anyway. Just switch off the 3D effect and you're good to go. I still wanna play Return of Samus.
On the emulation issue, a big factor in the difficulty will be how similar it is to the original DS, which already has emulators for it working to various degrees. If it's very similar, then large parts of the code for DS emulation will be able to be re-used for 3DS emulation. As for the auto-stereoscopic aspects, I suspect they can probably be disabled and the rendering done with just a single 3D viewpoint.
Accidental mistakes are forgivable, intentional ones are not.
