He is just another pawn sadly, but I do like his stance on a lot of social issues and honestly I think the Affordable Health Care Act is doing a hell of a lot better then what our previous system was doing especially when it comes to insurance rates and premiums.

I really am sad when I see Miyamoto taking Nintendo games very slowly into the online age. I just wish the man would embrace it in a meaningful way. That isn't to say that online co-op in a Mario game is necessary, but I just wish he would integrate online communities a lot better in his games. The Miiverse was a wonderful first step at this on the WiiU.

What better next action could Nintendo do other than integrating online with a Mario platformer, their main icon?

I guess what I meant by that is they need to better their online interactions with friends that you know. Kind of like what Xbox Live did with just handing over your gamertag as opposed to a long friend code. Basically they need to implement an online system that is much more user friendly.

Hmm I feel like I see the industry going more artsy in the next few years. I feel like this next generation will be the generation of the Indie developer until the big corporations can sink their teeth and money into the genre to turn it into a mass producing hit maker.

If you look at how video games have changed dramatically over the last 30+ years we can see that they have evolved in gameplay, story, innovation, and a wealth of other fields. This begs the question though in the next 20+ years where do you see games going?

We have seen new outbreaks of different types of games such as the Skylanders series which integrates toys and gameplay seemlessly (something that has been tried in the past, but has failed) as well as the new development of the Occulus Rift which will bring Virtual reality to the home.

Where do you see games evolving in the next 20 years?

I made a vlog on my YouTube channel about Zombies appearing in everything,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rG2C9VhJ8EQ,

and I want to know exactly how many things have Zombies actually appeared in. Whether it is television, movies, video games, books, what are some of the top notch Zombie things I should look into if I wanted to do a Zombie marathon of these things?

I love the multiple review idea that Gamespot is doing as long as the two reviewers can say their biases and their backgrounds before a review (which is what Gamespot is doing which is the best idea).

Maybe have someone that is a fan of the franchise review it and then someone who is playing a game for the first time. Different opinions is always a plus.

Am I alone in hoping that Gamespot brings back Button Mashing with this new look to their site? I loved that show dearly and was one of the most entertaining original programs they air back in the early to mid 2000's.

Right now the only saving grace that makes me want to buy a WiiU is the fact that Nintendo's games are freakin' phenomenal. That and the integration of the Miiverse is pretty awesome.
