The Virtual Boy is one of Nintendo’s lesser known systems. In short, it was a gaming system that released right before the N64 did. It is similar to a virtual reality head set. The only color it could produce onscreen was red. It was created by the same person that invented the Gameboy, Yokoi Gunpey. There are very few games for it and even fewer that are worth playing.

Part of the problem in the design of the Virtual Boy is that it had to played while hunched over at a table making it awkward and uncomfortable to play. Tighe Lory decided to do something about that. He custom built, and wired his own Virtual Boy arcade cabinet! It has the head unit on an adjustable fixture and has replaced the controller with buttons that you’d expect on an arcade cabinet. Over all it looks very well built and more convenient to play.

Going to Nintendo New York made me want to replay games from my past. 

There was this one section where we got to look at the history of Nintendo consoles so I got to see consoles I don’t ever remember seeing in person such as the family computer. I also got to see some consoles I did have but no longer have such as the GameCube. I had so much fun going thru all of these and hope to play some in the future.

STATE OF THE FARM - MARCH 2017

Welcome! For those who are not familiar with our STATE OF THE FARM updates, this is where we collect together the month’s news in brief, and look ahead to the coming months. While these columns currently focus on the 20th anniversary of Harvest Moon, we’ll also be discussing other upcoming titles later in 2017. But on the topic of Harvest Moon…

PS2 GAMES ARE COMING TO THE PS4!
We’re very excited that as part of the 20th anniversary of Harvest Moon, we have been working closely with Sony on some titles for their PS2 on PS4 program. While we can’t reveal quite yet when these titles will be coming, we can say the first one will be SOON! Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram for more news on these titles and more 20th anniversary celebrations, including contests and Throwback Thursday posts featuring your favorite titles from years past.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Why NATUME?
With the recent release of Harvest Moon 64 on the Wii U Virtual Console in both North America and Europe, let’s answer that one important question everyone has been talking about for 17 years: What’s up with the spelling of “Natume” on the title screen in Harvest Moon 64?!

Back when Harvest Moon 64 was being worked on, technology was very different. The Internet, email, data transfer, etc. weren’t the everyday tools they are now, so communication with Japan took a bit longer and was a tad more primitive than it is today. Unfortunately, the correction request on the title screen had fallen through the cracks, and when this was discovered, the title had already been approved by Nintendo and was set to go to production. 

The problem? Fixing it would have delayed the game by at least 45 days, pushing it out of December! Yikes! Sorry, no Harvest Moon 64 for Christmas and instead, a February release. So, it was decided that we would rather let our fans have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year planting crops and taking care of animals instead of being a Grinch for a simple “s”. The funny thing is, Natume is a legit way to spell Natsume in some versions of romaji. And now you know the story!

What else is new?
We’re hard at work planning our E3 lineup, and while we can’t announce anything quite yet, we’re excited at how our booth is shaping up and what titles we hope to have on hand. It’s a little too early to spill the beans quite yet, but be sure to stay tuned in the future when we begin making some BIG announcements!

What else is coming?
As promised, we’re continuing the Harvest Moon celebrations all year long, with more classic game releases, and of course contests. But Harvest Moon isn’t the only franchise we have surprises in store for…but that will have to wait for a future State of the Farm column!

Demon’s Crest, the long-lost SNES classic is out now on the North American Wii U eShop!

Originally released in 1994, Demon’s Crest was Firebrand’s third adventure, and one that took the idea of the two Gargoyle’s Quest games and added even more “oomph”  with its presentation and visuals.

Not to be missed!

Things Nintendo can do to not fuck over the Nintendo Switch like the Wii U
  • Not give it the Wii or DS branding (so far so good)
  • Release a good game for it at launch
    • Release a game for it at launch
  • State clearly what it is
  • Advertise it; don’t just expect people to buy it blindly
  • Make a Super Smash Bros. game for it
    • Better yet, make it exclusive to the Switch so people have to buy it
    • Also don’t make the DLC overpriced to shit
  • Make a Mario Kart game for it (maybe they are? maybe it’s an MK8 port)
  • Don’t just port all the system’s good games to the 3DS
  • Make the eShop (or whatever) simple.
    • Support the eShop with Virtual Console
    • Support the eShop with good downloadable games
  • Give the Switch enough storage to download at least three games as opposed to the Wii U’s one.
  • Price it cheaply (supposedly they will)
  • If it doesn’t sell as well as you thought it would within a year… DON’T GIVE UP ON IT. ACTUALLY FUCKING CARE ABOUT YOUR CONSOLE INSTEAD OF ABANDONING IT RIGHT AWAY. YOU’RE NOT HELPING YOURSELF, YOU’RE GIVING LESS OF A REASON TO BUY IT.
  • Put your most popular franchises on it. The Wii U lacked Animal Crossing, Kirby, a Pokemon spin-off like XD or Battle Revolution, Fire Emblem
    • Kid Icarus Uprising sequel please
  • More collaborative titles like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Hyrule Warriors, and Pokken
  • Take advantage of your gimmick, but don’t put it front-and-centre. The Wii U either didn’t use the second screen at all, or focused the entire game around it and 9/10 times it didn’t work.
