Happy New Year from Nintendo Life!

Posted by James Newton

Here's to what 2011 brings

2010 was a fantastic year for Nintendo gamers, with Super Mario Galaxy 2, Shantae: Risky's Revenge and countless other top titles making their way to consoles in 2010.

It was also a great year for Nintendo Life, during which we attended Media Summits, 3DS hands-on events and, for the first time, E3. We hit the landmark of 1 million visits per month in 2010, a huge achievement, and we'll continue to provide you with the best Nintendo reviews, news, features and community through 2011 and beyond.

On behalf of the team here at Nintendo Life, thanks to all our readers and writers for their support in 2010 and here's to another exciting and prosperous 12 months.

Look at a circle and tell me where it starts.Total nonsense.
If we are going to have a start, spring is when life starts anew is it.
May the best yet to come for NL and friends :)
And all enemies finally die. Like Ganondorf, space pirates etc. But let Bowser live at least he's got a sense of humour and I don't blame him for kidnapping Princess Peach, I'm tempted to myself.

Happy New Year!!

(first soapbox rant of 2011 follows)

Know what would make the new year even happier, Nintendo announces the new WiiHD. OK, they can wait until after the 3DS launch, announce it at E3, and still have it in stores for 11/11/11 alongside Zelda HD. It's way overdue. HD is mainstream, the Wii is 4 years old, 5 next winter. How many Xbox 360's have been out since it's launch - Core, Pro, Elite, Arcade; how many PS3s - maybe technically only the original and slim but how many different HDD sizes? The Wii has white, black and red? A WiiHD at $299 is marketable alongside Zelda. The Wii needs HD for Netflix, (people pay $100 for a Roku box JUST to watch Netflix in HD). Larger storage for Wiiware (how many HDD sizes does the iPod have?). WiFi N. HDMI. NIC. Wireless nunchuck. A little speedboost for upscaling old Wii games.Who wouldn't buy this? Nintendo doesn't need to make a new system, just improve the current one to modern standards, they don't need a new name as WiiHD is self explanatory. Who wouldn't buy this? And I think Nintendo can handle Wii and WiiHD if they can manage DSlite, DSi and DSiXL so don't even talk to me about market confusion.

(end of soapbox rant)

Happy New Year!!

If the Wii went HD, than I'd finally make the upgrade to a 42" or 50" Plasma! As it stands an upscaled image and gaming lag make me a saaaaad Panda indeed. :D Which is why I game on a 32" Fullscreen CRT instead.
The ability to output at 720p and 1080p especially would be killer. Reason being for 1080p is that the HDTV's for sale are infact native 1920x1080.

Where as 720p sets are fixed. Instead of being 1280x720, we have 720p HDTV's that are either 1366x768 or 1024x766 which is whacky, and basically means that's there's scaling involved, stretching or pixel loss, either way it's annoying.

All I know is I really want to make the plunge into the Plasma HD world, but that damn little amazing white magical box won't let me! :p
