• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Microsoft will try to buy Retro

  • After Rare will outlive their usefulness to Microsoft, Microsoft will sell them back to Nintendo and try to buy Retro.
    • Considering they're first party now, not second party like Rare were, that would be an impressive feat.
      • If Microsoft somehow buys Retro Studios, and sells Rare back to Nintendo, that would be pretty sad and some sort of deja vu. Even looking at the success Retro had with Nintendo's games. But this is very unlikely. Still.

Retro's next game is a Pokémon game

I'm crazy enough to guess it, and you know it would be awesome.

Retro's next game, for the Wii U, is an F-Zero game

  • It's a franchise that hasn't been out for a while, and it could utilize the online capabilities more.
