Memory Relapse

After a big week in gaming news, don’t expect any big announcements. We’ll see what we can scrounge up though. We do have a question for all you faithful readers out there. A little gaming nostalgia, and frankly, an answer to my fading memory. Do any of you remember a game for the NES, where you play this robotic guy and you can reverse gravity with the click of the B button? I canR...

E3 madness

Well I have been on the show floor for the past 2 days and this place is crazier than ever. More people, more games and the hype for the Xbox 360 and PS3 is amazing. Microsoft has always had a huge presence on the show floor but if they spent less than 10 million dollars on floor space, manpower and the materials to create the massive booth itself, I will be amazed. Now don’t get me wrong, t...

E3 Early Thoughts

I was very pumped about E3 last Monday. On this the eve before the last day of the show, I want to believe that it has been an awesome E3. Only problem is, I don’t. Logic would have said: “Hey, three next gen systems are being unveiled with new games!” It totally should’ve been one of the best shows. Unveiling shows are always really exciting, right? I just didn’t fee...

On to the games

The word is out. We’ve got a nice little selection coming our way soon. Let’s start off right with the new Zelda. Nuff said. Then there is the fancy WarioWare Twisted. This game looks really interesting and Gamespot has already given it a really good review. I thought it might be gimmicky, but they claim the mechanic never loses it’s touch. Batman Returns looks pretty impressive....

Gaming Genius

I’ve been posting a lot of plugs for Nintendo’s strategic decisions yesterday. While it’s an important part to staying in business, it won’t last long because in the end it’s really about the games (if none of these new boxes played games, no one would buy them. I.E. who wants a media center? We already have one in computers I say.) Which brings me to some of the best...

Another smart business move

I don’t know if you guys caught onto this one today, but I thought it was really clever how Nintendo marketed to the software publishers by saying that Revolution will be the cheapest and easiest platform to develop for. Game publishers are getting to be very big business (think EA). Even baby-boomer investors know who big game companies are. Cheaper development means bigger profits. Bigger ...

Console Industry = Processor Industry?

Do you really care what’s under your console’s “hood?” I remember a time before P3’s and P4’s ruled the computer earth when you really cared what your processor could do. Man, I could tell you how many gigflops my mug could spit out. Now-a-days, I could care less how many gigs my processor has. I’m not even sure what it is, 2. something. Just give me some ...

Thoughts on the day

While busy at work today, I made sure to keep updating Infendo with the best of the best. Now that I have the chance to take it all in, here’s my take on Nintendo’s performance today. Revolution – while it’s great you made a prototype appearance, I really wish i could have seen more. I kinda felt like you were pulling a DS unveiling like last year, and I’m still not s...

The Genius behind the Game Boy Micro

Launch a redesign (micro) of an already great portable system (advance SP) right on the heals of your competitor’s far more powerful system release (PSP). This was a gutsy and very tactful move by Nintendo. Chutzpah! Have you seen the blogs and media outlets today? They are all talking about the GameBoy micro (you’d think the thing was an iPod mini or something). Gadget geeks already w...

New Zelda Media

More goodness that is Zelda. This game is gonna be some good loving. It is just such a good game (at least the series always has been). Always well done. For those wanting to download the new video, it’s here: E3 Trailer (right click & save as). I’m anxious to see how it plays. Penny for your thoughts?

Good News

Apparently, the revolution pic’s are official prototypes, not the final design. Man, i was getting worried. Engadget is reporting that Nintendo wants to solicit feedback for the new design though. Let’s get to work through thoughtful commenting.
