The Switch 2 will be an absolute beast. By the end of it, it'll have a 12-14-year span of games library, including a Smash with all characters and a Mario Kart with 60-zillion courses and a Mario movie that will let you put your face into the action with an AI camera. PLUS they're building a real museum and hopefully some more amusement park add-ons.

It's like in Sim City when you hit 100,000 pop. and you get to add a bunch of new casinos and the music speeds up. Will Wright would be going out of his mind.

dang, Nintendo, life's too short to leave ideas sitting around that long. Just get them out there and leave luck to heaven.

I guess this is DYKG's twitter but they've posted lots of rejected pitches from the last 20+ years:

One of the rare cases where a fully built game is actually locked in a vault somewhere, Zero Racers was completed and rated by the ESRB, but cancelled shortly before launch bc Nintendo lost faith in the Virtual Boy.

Iwata asked his friend of 15 years, Yoot Saito, to bring his game Seaman to the 3DS. Yoot got working on it, but never finished. Feelings got a bit sore between the two men, and sadly, they never spoke again.

In 2004, Retro wanted to make a Zelda DS game that played a lot like Final Fantasy Tactics, but with a time travel mechanic that delivered a unique Zelda spin on the genre.

18 years ago, Retro Studios pitched a Zelda Tactics game for DS. Nintendo rejected the pitch, but I recently acquired the full 22 page pitch document and interviewed one of the designers. Here's the full story, full explained (20 minutes):

About 6 years ago, former Nintendo programmer and a small team made an F-Zero Switch prototype. Unfortunately, Nintendo didn't wanna fund it. He told us he could make a new F-Zero for less than $1 million.

More times FZ almost came back:

When development of Metroid Prime 3 began, Retro told Nintendo they wanted to make it a new style of game. An "open world" where Samus flew around the galaxy "chasing down baddies of various types." Nintendo said no =/

Full story:

After finishing up Metroid Prime 3, one of the team members pitched a document for Metroid Tactics -- basically, XCOM but in the Metroid universe. Unfortunately, Retro leadership rejected it, so Nintendo never saw the idea. Full story:

He/she's probably just yanking our chains or is genuinely stupid.

Listen son, if my review somehow wasn't clear enough, there's more info on this new Did You Know Gaming video:

Mmm 04 was a good year indeed. Plus it had the first TP reveal and the Reggie Era began.

Sure I may be sounding like a boomer but we're coming up on the 20th anniversary of the Gamecube's Last Gasp and we should all celebrate or memorialize it. The death of F-Zero and RARE (sold 1 month later)! the rebirth of Metroid! the Capcom Fiv.. I mean Two! a sleeper hit franchise (or 2?) are born! and boy was it a fun ride:

Mario Sunshine
Smuggler's Run: Warzones
007: Nightfire
TimeSplitters 2
Animal Crossing
Star Fox Adventures
Tony Hawk 4
Medal of Honor: Frontline
Metroid Prime

Wind Waker
Splinter Cell
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour

A strain of gonorrhoea – described as super-gonorrhoea – which is resistant to antibiotics has been identified in England.

Three new cases of Neisseria gonorrhoea have been confirmed by the UK Health Security Agency, bringing the total to four in recent months, after the first case was discovered at the end of last year.

The Bathroom of the Future Is Here: From High-Tech Toilets to Self-Filling Tubs

The Washlet+Totos come with bidet seats and conceal attendant water lines and power cables. Choose the S550e (from $2,111) for an automatically opening and closing lid, catalytic deodorizer, auto-flushing option and a system that pre-mists the spray wand and bowl with electrolyzed water, to cut down on grime. Despite those high tech features, the Drake looks like a toilet, and not, as some high-tech commodes do, “like a pod,” said Ms Kohut. “Not everything has to look futuristic…to function in modern times,” she said.

Do you want to race straight through a destructive tornado? How about underneath the legs of two giant yetis fighting for dominance? Perhaps a herd of dinosaurs roaming through the streets of LA is more up your alley. If you’re looking to make things even wilder, you can play as an attack helicopter driving around on its landing gear, a full-length fire engine, and even an alien UFO.

Beetle Adventure Racing developers, hope you're paying attention!

'Smart' male chastity device vulnerable to locking by hackers

A security flaw in an internet-connected male chastity device could allow hackers to remotely lock it -- leaving users trapped, researchers have warned.

The Cellmate, produced by Chinese firm Qiui, is a cover that clamps on the base of the male genitals with a hardened steel ring, and does not have a physical key or manual override.

On Thursday evening, NASA is sending a new, $23 million toilet to the International Space Station.

It's meant as a test: Astronauts on the ISS will test the toilet out before NASA installs an upgraded version on its Orion spaceship, which is slated to fly a crew to the moon as early as 2023.

But Jason Hutt, the Orion spaceship's engineering lead, said there's still one kink with the UWMS: It's too stinky.

Because Orion is only the length of a small powerboat and must house four waste-expelling adults...


The tests require human noses, so NASA has "certified sniffers" at its White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico. True to their title, these employees are paid to smell the toilets after they've been used to evaluate whether odor-control measures are working.

This is what scientists are doing instead of solving Covid or inventing hoverboards smh

Aw. The people I've killed who were playing on mobile looked absolutely ridiculous. I hope they bring it back soon so I can completely destroy them.

When you flick the switch on the door to occupied to automatically frosts the glass so no one can see in or out. (Or at least that's what the person inside thinks.... :evil; )

What happens if there's a power outage?

Is this the ultimate Japanese innovation? Could the world get any worse?

"Loo with a view: transparent public toilets installed in Tokyo parks"

Yes, you read that right.
