As you may or may not know, the president of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, died at the age of 55 due to digestive cancer of some sort (the issue is still kind of unclear to me). He was a really great man (of course, I never knew him, but I assume he was a great man), and I know the situation is really sad, but let's try to move on from it and think about who the new president of Nintendo will be.
Here's to hoping it'll be someone great!

I just got Splatoon and it's pretty fun, to be honest. The weapons are interesting, the music is catchy, the character design is great, and it's nice to see a shooter that isn't a power fantasy for racists! I have some ideas for a potential sequel here.

Story: After the Inklings and Octarians put their differences aside (Octo Valley has become the aboveground Octo District of Inkopolis), an army of sea hares (Wikipedia entry here) led by the Nudibranch Bros. (an obvious spoof of One Direction, their names [Alpheus, Pacifico, Lars, and Yabarak] spelling out APLY, the first 4 letters of Aplysiomorpha, the genus sea hares belong to)  threaten to take over Inkopolis. It's up to Agents 1,2,3,4,& 5 (4 & 5 being the Squid Sisters' Octoling counterparts Tako and Yaki [from Takoyaki, fried octopus] who also host a news segment, theirs being related to the story, and who also play music, theirs being more similar to the songs in campaign mode and their songs also appearing in Octo District Turf Wars and Splatfests), led by Cap'n Cuttlefish and the newly reformed DJ Octavio to stop the gastropod invasion once and for all.
Music: All the tracks in the previous game appear. Some appear in Turf Wars and Splatfests (Including single player music from campaign mode), while others only appear in the jukebox (unlocked by default, and it contains the entire soundtrack of both games). The single-player campaign music is more Western pop inspired, with the final boss's second phase being the Squid Sisters's song from the original game, but with Tako and Yaki injecting a more electronic vibe.
Hubworld: Inkopolis is divided into 2 districts now, with Inkopolis Tower at the center. Squid District is the whole of Inkopolis from the original Splatoon, while Octo District, where the Octarians live, is basically a retreading of Squid District, but with a more industrial feel. Jellyfish appear on both sides.
Shops: All 4 shops in the original and Spyke's business appear, and their counterparts, which only take Super Sea Snails, appear in Octo District.
Mantis Strike: Owned by Shelby (Mantis Shrimp), this place has more powerful weapons, but at a higher cost.
Proteus Shirts: Owned by Nyx (Nautilus),  this place sells higher-end clothing–At higher prices of course!
Chiton Footwear: Owned by Candra (Crab), this place is unusual that it sells items for cheaper. The items are usually lower-quality though.
Ice Cap: Owned by Clayton (Sea Angel), this place sells high-quality headgear for higher prices.
Star Swap: Owned by Spyke's cousin Aston (Sea Star), you can exchange Super Sea Snails for cash here.
Items: Not much, you can now keep Splatfest T-shirts if your team wins, and the Octoling armor (Purchasable from Nyx's shop) makes your squid form look like an octopus when you're wearing it.
Subtitles: I think the subtitles should be spoofs of other shooter titles, for example:
Calamari Of Duty
Marine Warfare
Splat Ops
Splattlefield
Cuttle of Honor
(I would put "Whalo" or something here but there's nothing in the plot about whales, maybe I should save that for the 3rd game.)
If you have any more ideas, let me know!

So, I made a few comments on some Lucario/Quadruped hybrid pics i just found to not fit my tastes, and the artist's getting all defensive. Dude, come out of your shell and face reality. People are gonna say negative things about your work and you can't stop them (Trying to get them to think like you is ILLEGAL, MY BOYKing Harkinian (Toast) , OR ELSE YOU WILL SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB ALL THE FLOORS IN HYRULE, SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB ALL THE FLOORS IN GAMELON,SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB MY SHIP IN THE MORNING, SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB MY WII, YOU KNOW. Come back when you're a little, hmmmmmm, RICHER!) Just because I think Lucario should stay as it is doesn't mean I'm a bad person (we're all bad just by existing–Thanks for filling me in, Thetis!), but that doesn't mean you get off scott-free.

I just saw the Arceus cutscene in HG/SS (I'm not posting the link in case doing that would force me to see this scene for my entire life with no escape) and boy, is it one of the craziest things in any Pokémon game ever. Google "arceus cutscene hgss" and you'll see exactly what happens when you bring the legendary hulahooping space Brachiosaurus (that's what it looks like to me) to the Ruins of Alph to get a member of the Relativity Trio (Dialga/Palkia/Giratina) at the Sinjoh Ruins. When you stand on one of the circles on the triangular platform in the ruins, something that I can't even comprehend happens, so I'll have TVTropes do it for me. According to TVTropes, what Arceus does in this scene is to start out "with Unown flying around the area and Arceus glowing. Then a closeup of its face covers the screen before fading away, and its battle music from the Sinnoh games begins blaring as a montage of images of real life begin flashing across the screen all the while Arceus' overworld sprite and a strange pattern of lines overlap them. Some of these real-life images are: space, a forest, a rainbow, an erupting volcano, a lightning storm, skyscrapers, train tracks, a highway intersection, blood cells, a solar eclipse, and finally the Earth itself. Never before has such a thing as this occurred in any medium of PokémonWord of God says that in this sequence, Arceus is recreating the universe from scratch to create that Dialga/Palkia/Giratina for you." I believe that, of all the quotes in the world, from those of plumbers to those of poets and from those of shopkeepers to those of scientists, the best quote to describe this scene was spoken by a fictional character– "What the hell was that?!"–Krusty the Clown,"Krusty Gets Kancelled", The Simpsons.First of all, I'm impressed the DS can even DO realistic photos. Secondly, I'm a person who hates mixing media, especially in an animated situation.Thirdly, this looks like something from a Beatles music video, if the Beatles played terrifying timpanis and brass. It would have really been cool if they used the same engine for the Ho-oh cutscene to animate this, and if they had to do some sort of space scenery, they could animate some sort of solar system (I'm a big fan of online orreries) or show different places on the Pokémon universe's Earth (Ideally set to an ultra-epic remix of the traditional Pokémon title theme) as your egg forms (as some sort of clever loading-bar-esque thing). This is one of the only things that have both confused and amused me. Good job, Gamefreak, GOOD JOB!!!Fear Fear Fear Confused Confused Confused Laughing Laughing Laughing
