Nintendo has filed trademarks for three of their mysterious “quality of life” devices this week in the United States. Since they already filed these with Europe and Japan, these new trademarks are considered foreign priority. The three trademarks sound like they have a lot to do with the 3DS and the Wii U, as they make frequent mention of “handheld game apparatus with liquid crystal displays” and “consumer video game apparatus.” The first seems to deal mostly in data storage, the second in “controllers and joysticks,” and the third in communication between devices.

One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
