Part of Nintendo's online plan?

...is currently another access URL to Nintendo.com (Like GameBoyAdvance.com.) Expect this to change soon, though. Small, I know, but still good to see, isn't it?

Where's the Announcement?

by Billy Berghammer - 1:12 am PST

Give us news or give us... a taco!

I think everyone is about as sick of this topic as I am. While Nintendo is keeping as silent as possible about this announcement, and what it will be and when it will happen and all that, the people have become rather disappointed. Don't fret!

The good news is that news is coming and it should... Read more...

Toby ain't no foo'!

God bless Toby, the speculating jackass! At least if you're a big tetris (or Tetrinet) fan. Nintendo has posted a tetris poll (click here to check it out) on their website, including a question asking what Tetris games you have played. Very interesting listing of 2 Tetris games that don't exist yet,... Read more...

One more developer on board?

According to IGN64, Crave Entertainment, the makers of such N64 games as Milo's Astro Lanes and Fighting Force 64, are looking to bring games over to Nintendo's Next Generation Console, ie the Dolphin. "We're always interested in all next generation platforms including Nintendo's" said Crave. Although it's good to see people interested in Dolphin, a company like Crave isn't known to produce stellar titles.

Gamers are in for a treat...

Well I'm not sure exactly sure what delicious refers to in the headline, possibly the graphics? But the news over at the dojo is that Ubi Soft, the proud publishers of fine games like Rayman 2 and Rocket: Robot on Wheels, are going to release the game "Dinosaur", based on the upcoming Disney CGI movie,...

Good Radar reading?

Take a look inside...

It's True! And I ain't no Pig Fu$%er! This is kind of an extention in philosophies of what the Dorks said earlier. More pondering while we wait for real hard news! I do have to agree with the ideas presented here. Can Nintendo pull off a 2000 release in the US? Damn will there be a sh*$load of amazing games to play this holiday season. I'll have to quit my job. :) But this is another good read none the less.

Tendo Box is two words.

The fine folks at Tendo Box have a nice editorial about Nintendo's Marketing strategies called "Marketing the Next Generation." The editorial takes a look at Nintendo's marketing strategies for this year. It's also suggests a possible Delay of both of the next gen Nintendo systems (Dolphin, GBA)...which I could agree with.

Dolphins, IBM, and Fran oh my!

Seems like everything may be right on schedule as the news that IBM has produced 2,000,000 copper chips, with over 1,000,000 in the past 4 months alone, has surfaced. Some people's viewpoint on wether IBM an Nintendo could succesfully produce such a large maount of chips on time seem to be squashed... Read more...

GBA!!

Hell yeah! Bring it on! After picking up my GBC the other day and getting lost in the world of Pokemon (god forbid!) I have just been facinated with the concept of GBA, and what it will be able to do. IGN Pocket has done a very cool recap, and preview of the new handheld. Interesting to note that this editorial says that people have actually seen a demonstration of GBA playing a version of the N64 game Yoshi's Story. Hrmmm. Read on!

ATI purchases Art-X for 400 million!

If I had $400 Million Dollars I would have bought Art-X as well! Then again if I had 400 million I wouldn't be writing this right now :). I'd be partying like a freaking rockstar!
