Some Thoughts on DVD-RAM...

by Jaymin Reed - 1:57 am PDT

Jaymin gives his thoughts on the DVD format and Nintendo's relationship with Panasonic in this editorial.

While I myself was always a proponent for 64 DD-ish tech in Dolphin (first publicly speculated by Steven Thomas,) I must admit that DVD RAM, or perhaps even the new MEI/Toshiba/SanDisk SD Memory cards (MEI's memory stick killers) are much more likely for the writeable aspect of Dolphin. DVD Ram drives... Read more...

Multiplayer on Nintendo

by Michael Sell - 7:40 pm PDT

Brought to us by the N64 & enhanced by Dolphin, multiplayer games are at the crux of what make Nintendo enjoyable. Michael Sell writes an editorial on the subject.

Amongst all of these rumors, statements, and leaks about everything from how much ram it will have to how many polygons it will render, I find myself looking to the software, but most importantly, the aspect of the N64 that, at least to me, always made it rule over Sony. This of course being multiplayer gaming.

9.9.99 = BFD?

by Billy Berghammer - 10:00 pm PDT

Sega's Dreamcast Launch has come and gone... so what do people think?

9.9.99 has come and gone. Now you are probably wondering why a next generation Nintendo site would have an editorial dealing with a Sega product. Well, as I stated earlier this week on the site, I live in Minneapolis and the radio station I work at was the station picked to be on hand at the Dreamcast’s... Read more...

Our Perspective of Next Gen

by Shawn Sullivan - 6:40 pm PDT

Shawn Sullivan takes a look at our perspective of the next generation of video games. A "Top Ten" list of sorts, covering some of the most important aspects for games of the future.

After reading Kosta's great editorial on the console war from a software perspective, I got to thinking about what us, as gamers, were going to be looking for in our next-generation games, and what developers are going to be doing with the games. Now, mind you, my likes and dislikes may sway this editorial, but I am trying to look at the big picture.

Nintendo vs. Sony

A look at the Next-Generation Console War from the software perspective

Whenever a new console is announced the first thing a reader looks at is its technical prowess, believe me I do too. Of course the processor, RAM, polygon count are important and key factors, what is sorely missed by the reader is the fact that what really makes or breaks a console is games.

Atlantis Dreams

by Shawn Sullivan - 12:33 am PDT

Shawn Sullivan gives us his thoughts about the new Game Boy, how it might connect to the Dolphin and what we can expect.

With all this news about a new 32 bit Game Boy in the making, I've decided to write an article about how I think the next version of the Game Boy should be and how it will hook up to the Dolphin. I'll also talk about some future games that should come out for it and really take us to the next level with portable gaming.

Online 2000

by Billy Berghammer - 10:00 pm PDT

Billy explores the importance and impact of online gaming on the industry...

I play a lot of online games. I love them. Ever since the first time I fragged someone over the Net with Quake, I was hooked. Quake, Quake 2, CTF, Half-Life, TCF, Jedi Knight, and X-Wing Alliance are a few of the games that have kept me up to the wee hours of the morning. It has turned to obsession... Read more...
