イカ研究所の調査報告だ。 この社会では「イカしてる」かどうかが評価の基準となっている。 イカしてないヤツは、ショップの店員から客として相手にされないらしい。 着飾るより先に、バトルで経験を積んで自分を磨いてこいということだ。 pic.twitter.com/5XnyuHorAk— Splatoon（スプラトゥーン） (@SplatoonJP) January 28, 2015
調査の続報だ。 バトルに参加して経験を積むとランクが上がる。このランクが「イカしてる」かどうかの指標となるそうだ。 最初のブキを買うにはランク２、ギアショップの店員に認められるにはちょっとイカしたランク４が必要なようだ。 pic.twitter.com/ohzuS9hfrL— Splatoon（スプラトゥーン） (@SplatoonJP) January 28, 2015
Stay safe out there, gang. Nasty weather hitting the nation in various spots. Snow is coming to gunk up the roads, so please keep your wits about you. Don't drive unless you absolutely have to! If you can, stay warm and snuggled up in your homes with family/friends. See you in a few, short hours!
For a very long time now, Nintendo has been making both consoles and portables. Nintendo portables let you take your games on the go, albeit with a little less visual pizzazz. Nintendo's consoles pave the wave for grandiose adventures that give us the latest in top-notch visuals and also let Nintendo's devs really strut their stuff. That's how it's almost always been, but will it continue to be that way?
Nintendo has been dropping slight hints for awhile now that their hardware future might be a tad different from how things operate now. It seems that Nintendo is, at the very least, considering a hardware future that combines both console and portable in one. Imagine a device that lets you play the latest Nintendo games on your TV, but then you can unplug that device and take it with you for play on the go.
Obviously, a platform like this would take quite a bit of designing prowess. It might also come with a number of hurdles that Nintendo hasn't had to deal with before. Could a portable home console built with on-the-go functionality built in still deliver the console experience that fans want? Could a beefy home console find a way to actually be portable and not cumbersome?
Now Nintendo hasn't officially confirmed that this is their future, but it seems like it's in the realm of possibility. How would you feel if Nintendo decided to take this approach? Would you be happy to see both worlds combined, or saddened to see the end of Nintendo's two lines of hardware? Leave a comment and let us know what you'd like to see from the Big N when it comes to future hardware creations.

A blurb from the PDF above...
During the nine months ended December 31, 2014, for “Nintendo 3DS,” “New Nintendo 3DS/New Nintendo 3DS XL,” launched as the newest members of the “Nintendo 3DS” family in Japan in October, got off to a good start and continued to sell well. However, as sales of the “Nintendo 3DS” hardware in the United States and in Europe, where “New Nintendo 3DS/New Nintendo 3DS XL” were yet to be launched, did not grow sufficiently, the global sales of the “Nintendo 3DS” family hardware were 7.08 million units.
As for the “Nintendo 3DS” software, “Pokémon Omega Ruby/Pokémon Alpha Sapphire” and “Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS” enjoyed robust sales with 9.35 million units and 6.19 million units sold respectively, while titles such as “Tomodachi Life,” “Mario Kart 7” and “Pokémon X/Pokémon Y” showed steady sales. There were also a number of hit titles from third-party publishers in the Japanese market. As a result, the global sales of the “Nintendo 3DS” software were 53.04 million units.
With respect to “Wii U,” Nintendo released two big titles, “Mario Kart 8”and “Super Smash Bros. for Wii U,” which enable family members and friends to have fun together in their living rooms. These titles sold 4.77 million units and 3.39 million units globally, and the global sales of the “Wii U” hardware and software reached 3.03 million and 20.59 million units respectively. As a result, net sales were 442.9 billion yen (of which overseas sales were 323.2 billion yen or 73.0% of the total sales) and operating income was 31.6 billion yen. As a result of exchange gains totaling 51.0 billion yen due to depreciation of the yen at the end of this period compared with the one at the end of the last fiscal year, ordinary income was 92.3 billion yen and net income was 59.5 billion yen.
