A GBA Delay is looking more and more likely and here's some reasons why...

Obviously most of us here at Planet N2000 aren't holding their breath for a Fall release of the GBA. With the GBC selling so well (and generally no competition), it would be pointless for Nintendo to feel the need to release the new handheld. Not that 95% of the people that read this rag wouldn't purchase it upon release. Heh heh. Here's a few chunks of fun of other possible reasons why the system may be delayed.

Hideo Kajima plays dumb about Dolphin, sorta... We think something could be up!

Computer and Video Games Magazine recently spoke with Hideo Kajima from Konami (Metal Gear). Not a whole lot is said here. Personally, I think it's a lot of crap. "I don't know much about Dolphin." Yeah, right. And then he goes on to talk about it's similarities to the other systems. Interesting contradiction.... Read more...

PS2...It's Crap!

We can't help noticing that Sony's PS2 is having problems. They DO say the best time to kick a man is when he's down...

Sony having more problems? Yeah, I know this is a Dolphin site, but Sony having problems is another boost for Nintendo followers! Not only is Sony recalling all their memory cards, but they might have a major lawsuit brewing? Not that Sony doesn't have a lot of money anyways...but, as my father says,... Read more...

Green Beer Rules!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Happy St. Patricks Day folks! Seeing is that all of us are Irish (even Kosta) we decided to take the night off, and pay homage to what is basically just green food coloring in beer. But it just makes it taste all that much better! So unfortunately there will be no Trivia tonight. Trivia should be returning next week, so keep on studying!

Ever wonder what it was like to be at the GDC? Well our Boy Darth Ed Shih was there and brought back bags of fish for all. Well not every one. Just me :).
