Next Generation Back On

Although it’s only in web version for now, Next Generation magazine is now online. For those of you who remember, this was one of the best gaming mags before it went belly up in the fall of 2001. If I remember correctly, the first edition was released in 1995. In other news, there hasn’t been much news. So with that, I’d like to ask which mags from back in the day did you like? I...

Say it ain’t so…

Punch Jump is reporting that Revolution games will retail for $60. This comes from recent GameStop listings that have speculative games preordering for that much. I think it’s still speculation, and more of a PR stunt by the game store. But if so, what ever happened to cheaper development? Nintendo would be smart to stick with a $50 price point. What do you think?

Revolution Controller: Not done

Shigeru Miyamoto has said that the Revolution controller’s functionality has not yet been finalized. I kinda guessed that since they haven’t shown the thing. Shocker! (Note to self: this means that all the mockup photos that are coming in are just fake. Still fun to speculate though.)

Tetris vs. Dr. Mario

I’ve recently been on a huge Dr. Mario kick. Well, actually Dr. Wario from WarioWare Inc, but it’s all the same. This game is so well done and very addictive. It’s gaming in it’s simplest form. I’m left wondering if it is even better than the beloved Tetris… That may be gaming blasphemy, but I’d be interested in hearing which one you like better and why. T...

Versus

Who will triumph and why? I guess the DS is off to head start over in Japan. Anyword on the matchup here in the States? Also, do you believe Nintendo when they say a newer GameBoy will be the real competition?

Strongbad Gaming

Wario Ware is just great gaming, Strongbad style. I’ve only played the original GBA version, and wanted to see what you thought of the others: Twisted, Touched, and the GC version. Which is the best out of all four? How do they stack up against each other? You decide.Who knows, maybe Strongbad himself will cast a vote…

Check out these nice new pics.

Lessons Learned from CD-i

Back in the mid ’90’s, CD-i wanted to become the in-home media center: music, movies, and games. Granted lack of games was a killer, but it has been reported that the company realized it needed to focus on games if it were to succeed, but it was too late. They went out in 1996. Is PS3 and Xbox taking the same route in trying to become the all-in-one home media center? Granted I’m...

NES PC

If you’re a hardware nut, Nintendo Fan, and have lots of extra time on your hands, knock yourself out. Here’s the how-to instructions if you’ve got the moxey! (Source: 4 Color Rebellion)

Revolution: No HD

Apparently, Ninny has decided not to include HD with Revolution. While this isn’t a huge shock, I’m left wondering. Do you think it’s a big deal? I don’t think it’s mission critical, but it would have been a nice feature. Nintendo is claiming that adding HD will add to developer and consumers cost. That may be the case but I wonder if that’s more PR spin than ac...

DS Web Browsing?

This would be cool but it’s sounding more and more like a fake. Who knows though, maybe web browsing on the DS could be a reality in the near future… (Source: www.spreadfirefox.com)

DS Outsells Sony PSP and PS2 Combined!

According to N-Gage Gaming of all places, not only is the DS outselling the PSP in Japan, but the PSP and PS2 combined. I guess it did better than both systems over the duration of one week. Impressive stuff, but it will be interesting to find out US figures. As we all know, American and Japanese gaming are different beasts altogether. How do you think it’s doing here in the states?
