Games please!!!

Some comments and email feedback from you Infedoans have indicated a want for more game reviews. I’m all for it but remember our previous slow summer post? I think it’s safe to say we’re all feeling the effects. Games please!!! So far, we deem the two most memorable Nintendo games of 2005 to be RE4 and Minish Cap. Current games in our queue: Twisted!, Beyond Good & Evil (GC),...

Outperform

As of December 2004, the N64 sold 32.93 million units compared to the GameCube’s 18.02 million units. Which begs to ask, if Nintendo sells less Revolutions than N64’s during the next round of consoles, will they survive as a hardware manufacturer? To be fair to the GameCube (which I believe is a better machine), she still can sell and was competing against a much more dominate Microsof...

Revolution Controller Shown to Third Parties

In an interview with Reginald Fils-Aime, EGM found out some interesting things. Primarily, Reggie after sharing the system’s controller with key third-party developers said, “…their eyes truly light up because they start to imagine what’s possible with [this] type of configuration, which is vastly different than a sheer horsepower type of game.” It also seems he claim...

Update: Leaked Revolution Ad

Over the weekend, we received the actual image of the Leaked Revolution Ad screenshot. The anonymous source claims the image comes from an agency that has done work for Nintendo in the past. He went on to confirm that this is in fact just a concept and said similar ideas like “The future is in your hands” were also in the works referring to the oh so elusive controller. Still speculati...

Zelda Voice Dialog: Yeah or Nay?

Do you agree or disagree with the following? Excerpt taken from Wired interview with Eiji Aonuma, Zelda ProducerIf the [game’s] emphasis is on realism, why not incorporate voiced dialog? “I feel like it’s not suited to the Zelda series,” Aonuma said. “When the player is reading text on the screen, they’re inserting a part of themselves, their imagination, into t...

Leaked Revolution Ad?

This was sent to us from an unconfirmed source via email. It is pure speculation, however. The individual claims to have access to non-public info, but says he only works in marketing and not in actual development. Apparently, it depicts an ad campaign to be launched at the same time as the Xbox 360 release later this year. Personally, I think a March 2006 release to be too early, but your guess i...

Slow Summer

It has been said that during the summer, Nintendo refrains from releasing large software titles in an effort to keep people more active. Can anyone confirm this? It always seems to be the case every time summer rolls around. If this urban myth is true, that’s pretty classy on Nintendo’s part.

Revolution Controller?

Here’s the latest, and if you ask me, it looks fairly legit. Pick this one apart for me though.(click to enlarge)

Classic Makeovers

Word on the street is that classic Nintendo games may get a new look when downloaded from the upcoming Revolution service. Saturo Iwata said, “We are doing several experiments, including working with the original Super Mario Bros., with the new technology. The game itself and the gameplay shall be identical, but the look will be different; it’s possible that with Revolution, we may be ...
