When Shiggy speaks, we listen. CVG printed a transcript of the Miyamoto roundtable from Spaceworld...except messed up my question! Grrrr. Good news tho' inside!

Shigeru Miyamoto recently revealed that Luigi would be in Smash Brothers in a recent round table interview at Spaceworld 2001. Figuring we’d want to know more of what Shiggy had to say, one of our UK readers Chris Yates sent us a transcript. Here are a few choice quotes, regarding the new Zelda, no Mario at launch, GBA/GC connections and even more exciting news/views straight from Mr. Miyamoto himself. Check it out!

Can you say... Scam? GBA

Some kids get a lawyer to file a Pokémon related gambling suit against Nintendo. Fun for the whole family.

My lord, this is ridiculous. You think Pokemon trading card is equal to Illegal gambling? Just like eating fun dip is equal to smoking one of those funny cigarettes. Hmm...well maybe a bad example.

Anyhoo...Check out this story about two kids actually filling a lawsuit against Nintendo.... Read more...

Sony gets a head start in the next-gen race... and accidentally leaves out a few things.

You think? It's uglier than the insides of a horses ass and it only has 2 controller ports! And Sony seemed to work real hard on their new controller. Yeah, I am not all that impressed with Sony's next generation to say the least. Well I am done bitching, but my good buddy Justin Nation from OperatioN2000 has a few words of his own. It's an excellent editorial called PS2: Heading in the Wrong Direction? Check it out here.

ArtX was going to show its chips at a tech event, but had to cancel due to falling behind schedule a bit.

We are not quite sure if this is from the rumor mill or not, but FGN Online has reported that Art-X has pulled out of the Microprocessor Forum where they were supposed to show their chip. Damn! Well here's the word.

The chipmaker was scheduled to reveal the technology on October 6, but has now had to mysteriously pull out of the event. Rumors are suggesting that Nintendo may have had something to do with the retraction.

On a cold and rainy Monday last December,... Read more...

Come on... witness the horror...

The CarXMan is in full effect with hookin' me up with the story. It's basically all over the net, but CarX sent me a link to the Gaming Intelligence Agency's story. Remember...this means since Sony has showed their cards....Nintendo is next. :) Well here's what Sony's next system has to offer. Note: it will only have 2 controller ports. Dumbasses! Anyhoo...here you go...

What do you do when the release date is more than a year off and you are starved for info? Get creative...

Not even close. But these people did seem to rip off quite a few things from...well...a bunch of people. Man, they even stole graphics. A cool HQ tribute site to say the least. I noticed their link on the N2000HQ. Well check it out for yourself. What do you think of the N200X mock up they have? Looks cool!

And Rena Mero....better known as Sable will be at our launch, as well as two Minnesota Vikings. (I am a huge Packers fan...so this should be interesting).... Read more...
