Eurocom have Dolphin on its horizon and add a small smidgen of info to the mystery.
In an interview with Daily Radar, Eurocom spilled very little information about their Dolphin plans and remained as tight lipped as anyone would expect when talking Dolphin. But even so they did say "Definitely, yes" when asked if they were looking into Dolphin development, "Nintendo have always been... Read more...

Capcom President Bill Gardner speaks his mind on the state of the industry and "the Big 3." It isn't all nice either...
Capcom president Bill Gardener seems to have woke up on the wrong side of the bed as he issued the public with his views on the next-gen console race. Without anything nice to say about Sony, Nintendo and Sega he just dishes out negative comments about each company. I mean dissing Sony is great, Sega ok, but Nintendo?! Below are excerpts from FGNonline.

Looks like that recent Factor 5 interview we told you about was just a sham. Lame!
Figures. Put up a story that's on NintendoNext and it's bullsh$#. Typical. The one FINAL time I gave NN a chance and they choke. Never again. I apologize to you the readers for lowering my defenses. I am turning my BS detector back on full. This is the e-mail I got from Mr. Duck. You silly punk ass.

Believe it or not, Nintendo Next landed an interview with Factor 5. We think they did anyway...
Maybe. I am actually going to post something about NintendoNext! Yes wacky Monday stuff. The only reason I am posting this is 1.) It's real (possibly) and 2.) Don didn't write it! Heh Heh! Anyhoo, NintendoNext seems to have had an interview with Factor 5. 2000 a possibility? After reading this, I think it could be.

Recent polls suggest that Nintendo should take female gamers into consideration with its next-console. Guess what Shiggy has to say?
In Japan a poll conducted recently that showed that the female population of Japanese gamers have little interest in purchasing a PS2. Well what does this have to do with Dolphin you say? In a recent interview, Miyamoto stated "As a matter of fact I'm currently working on a game starring a girl. Unfortunately,... Read more...

"Calling Thunderbirds!" THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO! Guess what? A game based on an action puppet show from years back is heading to Dolphin!
FGN Online reports that Thunderbirds will be a new game developed for the next generation Consoles. So what the hell is it? Well it's not a Jet Simulator if that's what you are thinking. This is possibly looking more like a space adventure/shooter/rpg. This could be really interesting! Thunderbirds is a 32 part series developed by Gerry Anderson. This is what TV21 (a Gerry Anderson Fan Site) has to say about our new friend Gerry...

NintendoExpress uncovers a vital clue, proving without a doubt that LucasArts will be providing software for Dolphin
Nintendo Express reports that LucasArts has jumped onboard the Dolphin wagon, which means good news for all the Star Wars fans out there. Here's the full story:
On their website, LucasArts has listed an opening for a new Nintendo Senior Programmer. While this, in its own right, isn't anything newsworthy, it what was listed under "Major Responsibilities" that took us by suprise. Listed at the tip top of the list were these words.

Jim Merrick gives a revealing interview concerning the Dolphin, his views on PS2 and more! We have the highlights.
Who? Oh you know...Nintendo's Software Engineering Manager Jim Merrick!!! Uhhh..okay. Well he's got a LOT to say Dolphin wise. Most of this we already knew, but there's sort of word of Dev Kits out (or emulators), and some more goodies. Here's the link to the actual IGN64 interview. But here's the stuff that really matters with the Dolphin.

Half-man, half-machine, all cop - the sci-fi police legend Robocop will be coming to Dolphin.
Bring on the game announcements! So, Titus is making RoboCop for Dolphin? Hmmm. I am not sure what to think about this. Granted a RoboCop type of game would be very cool, if it's done well. Or it could turn out to be the next game using a "Licensed" Characters that blows chunks. Superman ring a bell? Who knows what'll happen. But here's the words from the Dorks:
