You all have motivated me and I hope I've done the same for all of you my dear readers.   You are strong and brave and you can get through anything. Hopefully my pos

How Nintendo built themselves up

I think it’s overlooked that the big Japanese publishers—including Nintendo—were looking to the West long before Sony’s decline in Japan.Like they were looking to the west on NES, SNES, PSX too!I think the other thing overlooked is that Nintendo was disproportionately wrt home consoles losing ground in Japan starting with N64. Nintendo was forced to confront shortfall in the Japanese market long ago and this eventually led to it, with DS/3DS/Wii U doing disproportionately well in Japan.Iwata Nin

Whats Your opinion on Third Parties support?

So, MHRise is the best selling third party game on Switch with 7M of units   Gamasutra - Monster Hunter Rise has shipped 7 million copies in two months Considering that it was released on one console (PC version is still not available)I was thinking how important this is. While MH has been with Nintendo consoles since many years ago (mostly because the portable consoles) this is the first Non-Nintendo Third Party Exclusive that is not a port from current or last gen. Also it doesnt fea

The origins of one of these holidays

Did you know? Memorial Day was originally a Black holiday called “Decoration Day”. It was a celebration to thank the Black Union soldiers who’d fought and given their lives in the Civil War. The first Decoration Day was held in 1865 in Charleston, South Carolina. The Union army had just successfully defeated the Confederate army. Black Union soldiers played a very large part in this victory.  On May 1, around 10,000 free Black people gathered in the historic Hampton Park to pay their r

Nintendo and Japanese 3rd parties report

Konami will soon surpass 3 million sales on the Switch and Baseball Spirits & Yu-gi-oh launching this year they should have no problems reaching something like 4.5 million. If they end up launching Winning Eleven on the Switch it could very well be an even higher total. On their heals will be Capcom with Rise, Stories 2, Generations Ultimate & Ace Attorney both companies will soon be uncontested at the top.Square does have Dragon Quest III Remake launching this year, so overall they shou

Sports Crossover? Yes or No

For quite some years I have been dreaming about a crossover racing game which would include Wave Race, 1080° Snowboarding, and Excitebike. With 2021 being N64’s 25th anniversary, I thought that now might as well be the time to share my wish. Two of these three series got their life started on Nintendo 64 (Wave Race and 1080° Snowboarding) and did receive sequels since, but even those were quite some time ago. And though Excitebike got a spiritual successor in Excite Truck (with the OG title

A lot of video game to film adaptations fail

It has nothing to do with the source material, the fundamental problem is that the film studios don't understand what part of the story in the game is appealing. With a lot of horror game adaptations, the focus tends to be shifted away from horror and towards action. This to me shows that the writers watched a let's play or just saw some scenes or pictures. They miss how much more terrifying it is to exist in that world rather than watching it from outside. So, th

Will Nintendo release an upgraded Switch model?

Nintendo's more popular handhelds have had very long lifespans, in the neighborhood of 10 years. I think the Nintendo Switch will wind up in that territory.The thing is Nintendo has been hinting at this publicly too. For the last year or so, they keep talking about how the Switch is just entering the middle of its lifespan. So it’s got a ways to go.I do think it’s worth mentioning something that will probably come up. There’s a theory that Nintendo is done with generations as we know them, and i

Focusing on my student loan

I had $63000 in student loans for a college degree. When I graduated from school I had about slightly less at a 7.45% interest rate. At first I tried to get my career started so the loans grew. I remember every time I would get a statement I couldn’t sleep for a few nights. Watching that balance grow was very uneasy. I ended up having a baby (very expensive, so I was really in a mess. Eventually I got tired of the hustle and became a certified armed agent. My income gradually grew and I started

Dear Readers,  I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging.

HELP WANTED

"No one wants to pay for distraction, but they will pay if it's packaged as help." (me)   How help is defined is tricky. It depends on the client/customer's wants. If your prospective customer wants to escape their environment, then consider if you, the independent author have the skills, resources, and experience packaged in your book to help.    If your book is the solution, then show them how it can get what they want. In this case, adventure, exotic destination, and a

Expand Access to Increase Book Sales

There’s only one way to become a bestselling* author. Get a lot of people to buy your book. - Simple, right?   Yes, but it’s not easy for independent authors who must get their book in front of enough people to gain global sales.  Well, at least it wasn’t easy before the internet and the growth of eCommerce. Back then, it was nearly impossible to make global sales without a prominent publisher. Now any writer can sell worldwide. So why do so many independent authors insist on sel

Masterclass 2020

The essence of day 1 was making a game that was a non zero sum base. I placed in the audiobook my audio thoughts. If you want a complete reference, the ebook has the audio as well as the transcript and the game. The Game link below is where you can see my gaming example. In a non zero-sum game, winning or losing is not the goal. In the game I made, the goal is to keep playing it, thus you do not want it to end, you are in control of both sides, like when one plays chess by themselves but unlike

Write for you BUT with readers in mind

So, you've finished writing your first book and after you've blown through your friends and family list; now, it's time to find your readers.  You know, those people who don't know you but will want to read your book if they knew about it? In other words, it's time to market your book. If you haven't thought about marketing until now, that's ok. The first step to finding your audience is to understand why, who and how. To determine it, backtrack to why you wrote the book in the first place.

BLACK SIGIL LIST

In modernity many Black people speak to finding roots or gaining reparations or many other thing offline that require a collective power that does not exist or an individual power that does not exist. I am not suggesting said power will not become to a black group or black individual offline. But, I am certain it is easier for a black collective or individual task online to be successful. To that end, I cognize a nice way to show who black people are today, that can have value tomorrow , collect
