Good Idea/Bad Idea
Posted 18 January 2009 - 08:56 AM
First off, if you think gimmicky toys like the Barcode Battler, where you could scan in barcodes to make monsters, were utter garbage, you probably are gonna see this as a bad idea from the start. Basically, the game would be sold with a GBA attachment that actually tuned in AM/FM radio waves. A variety of options could then be used in game with this, from using your DS as your own personal radio player, to the game recording whatever a station is playing and converting the sound data into enemy-formations, so there would be a nearly limitless amount of enemy formation types you could encounter while walking around on the radio waves. Using it for cool feature upgrades like this, the GBA attachment would not even be really required to play the game, but just to enhance it.
I was a big sucker for Boktai's Solar Sensor, so you can see why I might enjoy a radio attachment for Starforce. Just another idea that might spice up the Battle Network-based formula.

But for the execution of that idea, I don't know if it would work in the end. On paper it sounds good, but for real? I don't know. It might be either good or bad.

But, can't really know unless someone tries it. I really doubt Capcom will change up Starforce that much now anyways, but I can always dream.

But otherwise it's a good idea!
