Shiggy working on a Dolphin game, and info on Matsushita's new plant!

Nintendojo serves up two quick but informative stories this weekend. One dealing with the big "M" working on a Dolphin game...

Shigeru Miyamoto is in early stages of development on his first "Dolphin" title. He reportedly has working storyboards for the game. Nintendo is also said to be working on a package of development tools so software development by 3rd parties could begin before the hardware is complete. --core magazine.


One more try..

More fun with crappy laptops

Alright, I'm giving another go at this with the laptop. Please bear with anything that looks stupid :) Everything will be back to normal on Tuesday. I miss my home PC dearly. But while I am away, if there is something out there that I missed, please e-mail me at this address! Thanks!

Why is everything wacky?

Yeah, it's a late update right now, and I apologize. I am currently away from home. If something doesn't look right it's because this is my first time updating from my laptop. Yes, I took the plunge and bought a laptop for my travels. I ordered a laptop over the net in an auction, and I will admit,... Read more...

Ahhh...the classics getting made on the Dolphin. Here's the goodies.

My god! One of my favorite arcade games of all time! I played this till my fingers hurt on my Commodore 64. Talk about load times! Midway is developing a new reincarnation of Spy Hunter for a Nintendo console. Now the big question is, N64 or Dolphin? Here's what IGN64 has to say. Thanks for the tip from Jim German! (I was playin' TFC last night)

Net Access Confirmed

Surf with the Big Kahuna!

Well we were pretty sure of this already, it has actually been confirmed by the good people over at Nintendorks:

Though speculated since the first announcement of Nintendo's next console system, Tokyo Nintendo officially announced today that project Dolphin will have access to the Internet. This is definitely not "stop-the-presses" material, but just another thing to put on the Dolphin's tab.


Nintendo's Bright Financials

It's all about the Benjamines. And Nintendo's makin' em.

Nintendojo has a sweet story on the big N's earnings for the past fiscal year. Too large to reprint the whole thing, but here's a little snip about how much dough they rolled in.

Nintendo raked in the equivalent of $1.35 billion in fiscal 1999, with a group current profit of 165.2 billion yen.... Read more...

More Zelda? What's better than that?

Hell yeah! This will at least make all you people out there who are hungry for Zelda to hit the Dolphin (which you can almost guarantee) very happy. Some new form of Zelda will be hitting the N64. Thanks to Yutaka Ohbuchi (good to see ex-N64HQ-ers hookin' up with the big news) and Gamespot for the info...


Thee Mario Swiped?

The official Mario was swiped! Really!

Yes, believe it or not, but the actual Mario from NOA in Redmond, Washington was stolen. Damn, what a good hookup! Not that I would do something like that ;) . First, it's The Episode One film, now Mario. Thanks to Nintendorks for the dramatic story.

Info on Nintendo's copy protection plans!

Copy protection seems to be a very important issue for Nintendo with the choice of DVD with the Dolphin. Nintendo 2000 News relayed a story from EE Times about Matsushita's involvement with Nintendo in the battle against piracy.

It's here!

Sorry there hasn't been an update over the weekend. Now you know why. :) I have been mulling over the idea of a full redesign since I acquired this domain, but never actually had the time to do it. Now I did. I'd like to thank Fire Cheif Chris from South Park Central, and Tommy Wilde from Milwaukee... Read more...

More about the third party situation

Next Generation gives us the lowdown on the truth about the three 3rd party game publishers. I'm very happy (thank GOD) to hear the biziches were wrong, and Nintendorks were right....

On Wednesday, the business trade, Asia Biztech, reported that Nintendo intends to limit third-party for Dolphin to only three companies. Nintendo in Japan (via NoA) that there's more to the story.

Old school Star Wars

I think I filled my "Oops, I crapped my pants" adult undergarments after watching this. If you need more Star Wars, I think you'll get a kick out of Star Wars in ASCIIMATION. Someone definitely has a bit too much time on their hands. Thanks to Bluesnews.
