First ONM Live Q&A kicks off today

Chat to us about games from 4pm

Welcome to the very first ONM live webchat! Starting today at 4pm, we're giving you the chance to ask us any questions you like about Nintendo gaming.

Answering your questions will be ONM's online Editor Tom East (that's me!) and Reviews Editor Chris Scullion.

To get involved you just need to type your question at the bottom of the blog when we start. However, you can also get things started by asking a question in the comments thread at the bottom of this article.

First up, a bit of housekeeping! We know that many of you will want to ask about the next Nintendo console but we can't really comment on the rumour and speculation surrounding the new machine.

Yet if this proves popular we will be doing this every week so we should be able to answer your questions after E3.

Other than that feel free to ask us anything about Nintendo gaming in the past, present or future.

    What Pokemon would you concider yourself to be most like and why? or if you could be any Pokemon what would it be and why? :)

  2. Switzerninmaster Thursday 26th May 2011 at 13:32

    If you had to change the generic Mario storyline, how would you do it? What setting would it have and maybe a new enemy?

  3. noodle link Thursday 26th May 2011 at 13:44

    Wow, that was unexpected! Anywho, a few questions in advance:

    What are your favourite games that have never appeared on Nintendo consoles?

    If HAL/Sora were to make another Smash Bros. game, would you want it on the 3DS or the next Nintendo home console?

    What games do you love that everyone else seems to loathe?

    In your opinion, what is the best 3DS game available at the moment?

    Do you think there should be another No More Heroes game? It's fairly likely considering that Suda51 left a message ('"NO MORE HEROES NOT DEAD!!") in the back of the Japanese NMH2 booklet. What should it involve? Keep in mind that Travis' story is finished.

  4. Toad Rules Thursday 26th May 2011 at 13:52

    If you could re-make any Wii Game to the 3DS what would it be ?

  5. Joe_Crow Thursday 26th May 2011 at 13:57

    What are your desert island games and why?

    3 games on any system to take to a desert island and you can't play anything else for years! (pretend there's power and stuff...)


    Also, what are your guilty gaming pleasures?

  6. Joe_Crow Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:00

    Are either of you musically talented? If so, sing Totaka's secret song :D

  7. master dingley Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:02

    Not a bad idea, maybe if it kicks off you could get some guests on in future weeks, especially over E3 :P

    Anyway, my questions:

    The SNES era is often heralded as the golden age of gaming, it churned out classics that defined gaming like Zelda:Alttp, super mario world, chrono trigger, secret of mana, donkey kong country, starfox, f-zero, mario kart, I could go on forever :P Do you think we will ever get a generation of games like that again and what do you think will be needed for that to happen? The N64 was close, and whilst the gamecube and wii have had some absolute gems they haven't had as strong a line up as the SNES mostly down to third party support. I have high hopes for Project Cafe with its supposed snes style design, gives me the impression Nintendo are thinking the same thing as me :P

    Being a Nintendo site we only see you discussing Nintendo games, but do you play other consoles? Whilst being a Nintendo fanboy through and through I do like to try as much as possible and with the xbox and playstions gaining their own exclusives that give a different type of gaming than Nintendo games I'd be missing out if I didn't. So do you own/play the other consoles and if so what have been your highlights from them in past years?

    Finally, given your slightly better position to do so than the rest of us, please get the heads of capcom into an interview, then lock the door and not let them out till they promise to give us AAI:2 and Phoenix Wright vs Professor Layton. Much thanks ^^

  8. NINTENDOPOKEMON Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:04

    Do you desprately want a new advance wars game? And so you think there will be a smg3?

  9. ledreppe Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:05

    Any word on when Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 will be available on WiiWare?

  10. Joe_Crow Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:16

    What is your favourite Nintendo controller?

  11. Mooseballuk Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:34

    What games do u consider are great lauch titles when nintendo 3DS lauched?

  12. MrGooseyMoose Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:37

    Many key nintendo heroes, such as Link, Mario and Pokemon Trainer, lack any proper dialogue and/or voice overs. Do you think this is a strength, in that it helps gamers to associate with them? Or is it more likely that this apparant lack of depth makes them uninteresting characters overall?

  13. ShigeruMiyamoto Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:38

    What launch titles would you like to see for 'Project Cafe' ?
    Why does Gav want a game that has just come out to be remade in 3D for the 3DS?

  14. gadgetgirl16 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:41

    What game would you really like remade for the 3DS :?:

  15. twiggy426 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:43

    Any word on what's happened to Cave Story DSiware?

    Do think it's likely that we'll see confirmation of The Last Story's localisation at E3?

    What do you think will be the first top quality RPGs on the 3DS?

  16. ledreppe Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:48

    What are your E3 announcement predictions?

    What do want the Stream controller to do/be like?

    To quote Tom East:

    "First up, a bit of housekeeping! We know that many of you will want to ask about the next Nintendo console but we can't really comment on the rumour and speculation surrounding the new machine."

  17. Nintendoverse Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:51

    What do you thi

  18. bobbyy29 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:51

    I know you can't talk about the next console but would you like a game for it which could interface with 3DS and exchange save files and stuff?

  19. Nintendoverse Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:52

    What do you think of Pikmin? Do you think that Pikmin 3 will be announced at E3? If so, for which console? What do you think the future holds for the franchise?

  20. lookathis Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:54

    If you had to create a complety new mascot for Nintendo, what would it be?

  21. Joe_Crow Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:56

    To quote Tom East:

    "First up, a bit of housekeeping! We know that many of you will want to ask about the next Nintendo console but we can't really comment on the rumour and speculation surrounding the new machine."

    Thanks. Edited.

  22. Missile the dog Thursday 26th May 2011 at 14:59

    What game has caused the most arguments/rage or hate during multiplayer?

  23. Dig_Dug Thursday 26th May 2011 at 15:00

    What game are you most looking forward to this year on Wii, 3DS and DS?

  24. Tommyputt Thursday 26th May 2011 at 15:07

    Animal Crossing 3DS, will it be coming out and what feature do you think will be on it?

  25. Hylian_Grouch Thursday 26th May 2011 at 15:36

    presumably, mariokart 3ds will have new power ups and items. what could these be do you think? i would like the fire that you could launch in double dash to make a reappearance. what are your favourite mario kart items?

  26. Plobadob Thursday 26th May 2011 at 15:45

    Why wont my comments appear? :(

  27. Joe_Crow Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:18

    Fantastic blog guys :) It went so quickly. It's nice to have some input, and be able to ask direct questions. (Even though mine weren't answered - oh well :P) Can't wait for the next one!

  28. Ninja Sheep762 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:18

    Loved it, please do more! Pretty please? With a cherry on top?

  29. retrotoad Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:19

    That was great, make sure you do another one! :)

  30. Ammytastic Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:21

    Really enjoyed this, guys. Please do another soon.

    Also, who agrees with me, Time Travellers > Ocarina of Time 3D?

  31. Shadow117 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:21

    It was really good. And I think that Tom and Chris did a great job. Roll on the next one!! :)

  32. hammster Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:24

    The reaction to me saying Billy Hatcher was awesome.

  33. zwii01 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:26

    That was a great live q&a guys!
    I say yes to more of these! Also thanks for putting up some of my questions!

  34. NintendoForLife Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:29

    They should definitely be a constant feature!!!

  35. barrybarryk Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:32

    Do you think Nintendo have learned their lesson on skipping DLC for console games as a form of revenue for publishers and do you think the new Nintendo console will have a more centralised online experience?

  36. Issun2765 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:40

    Tom, I'm doing a National Diploma for IT Practitioners and next year I'm doing Web Design :D
    Would that be good enough to be put on the ONM team :wink:

  37. Issun2765 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 16:46

    Pilotwings Resort for 20 quid. Should I get it now as it's cheaper, since I'm not that bothered about OOT 3D

  38. TheImprobableOne Thursday 26th May 2011 at 17:21

    Do you think that games on websites like http://www.nitrome.com/ and http://www.notdoppler.com/ are as good as the ones on the consoles? And do you think that it will be downloadable apps or disks/cards that will last longer?

  39. mrmonopoly22 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 17:49

    Do you think a voice chat system will be made on 3DS?

  40. Guitarhero84 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 18:55

    I'm so angry right now. I wanted to participate, but fell asleep and the last messages saying "Bye" were popping up.
    :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
    I know it's my own stupid fault...

  41. Kirby8 Thursday 26th May 2011 at 19:30

    Didn't even know this was going on. Sad times. Would have been fun to participate. Didn't they do something like this for E3. I remember taking part in that. My question is, are you going to MCM and what will you be dressed as? Also, with Layton, number 3 was a great storyline in some senses, but weird in others. And the problem with choosing a fave Layton for me it memories (first one I brought in US...many memories) vs. storyline vs. Puzzles. So much to consider.

  42. Mmmyeah Thursday 26th May 2011 at 19:33

    could you do it later next time? some of us were not home from school to see this, it looked brilliant.

    yu got some meeeeeeeeelk?
    genius

  43. MrChewtoy Friday 27th May 2011 at 09:52

    Shame I missed it due to revision. Looking forward to the next one though!

  44. marcindapolak Friday 27th May 2011 at 14:17

  45. LaytonMario3 Friday 27th May 2011 at 15:40

    Picture the scene : Wario had a gun and was about to shot the following : Mario, Link, Samus, Pikachu and Kirby. All 5 are cowering behind a bin. You have enough time to save two of them. Which two would you save and why?

  46. Angry Goomba Sunday 29th May 2011 at 00:38

    1. There is DLC coming out for the console versions of Super Street Fighter 4 that upgrades it to the "Arcade Edition". Any news of this DLC coming to the 3DS?

    2.Do you know when the 3DS version of Sonic Generations will be released?

  47. potatopac Sunday 29th May 2011 at 12:54
