An article posted on Planet GameCube by Bakudan Yoshinoya way back on October 30th, 2002 linked to 3 videos held on Planet GameCube's servers. Obviously since then the site has migrated and became NWR. However, I would like to know if those bits of media are now on the NWR database (simply miss linked, as I know images are still accessible.) It would be greatly appreciated. I'm doing what appears to be the annual endeavour of uncovering pre-release material for F-Zero GX and AX. The article I'm referring to proceeds:

you might want to PM an admin or staff about that if you're looking for a speedy response of any kind.
I don't think they check the forums all that often anymore.

Insano and unclebob can't do anything to my knowlege, crimm checks about once every few months and megabyte checks only on those rare ocasions when the stars align and all that jazz.

My google-fu is pretty good today:

This is the archived page:

Second video (first one is not archived):

PS. Heh, that site layout... Yesh... And that video quality!.. How far we've come...

Wow. Thanks a lot guys, I was not expecting to get such good responses so quickly. Azeke, unfortunately I already posses the video linked in your archive, but the link MegaByte got is completely new to me (and makes me jealous, they got to play awesome Mute City in all it's pre-release glory.)

Wayback Machine is new to me and I absolutely love it. I recovered an old video link on the f-zero.com website that has been down for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, the first snapshot of the /movies/ archive/page, while it holds aou_l.mpeg, does not link correctly (error 302 - redirect) and is the only snapshot of when the link was live.

I'm very grateful for the help guys. I'll try and make something so you can all see what the hell I'm actually doing with all this material. :)
