Just a quick reminder that Super Princess Peach was released today! Early reviews for this one seem to be pretty high. It's an old school side scroller, what else do you need?! Go save MARIO!

2 Touch points are better than 1

The current Nintendo DS that we all know and love currently has one touch access. If you touch the DS with one or more objects, only one access point will enter. Nintendo recently filed a patent for not one but TWO touch points. And we thought that the DS was innovative.

STORY: Nintendo was granted a U.S. patent the company filed in July 2004, showing a "Gaming Apparatus" similar in appearance to the DS but with added touch screen functionality. The system shown is capable of recognizing two touch points simultaneously, as well as calculating related distances and angles between the two touched points. The current DS can only recognize one touch point at a time. Very interesting to say the least. I can definitely see this as a partner for FPS and driving games. Imagine the possibilities. Is this a sign of things to come? Is this possibly a "preview" of the next gameboy? I will keep you updated as more develops. Thanks for stopping by! Game ON!


Virtual Reality Saga Continues...

I wish I had a straight answer. I wish I could end all the speculation and rumors but I can't. The infamous rumor that the Revolution will have some sort of virtual reality/3-dimensional viewing still crops up. The Revolution rumor that wont die comes from an "anonymous" source going by the moniker "Discreet." This "source" is quoted as saying "I would just like to say that at E3 2006, they will 100% no doubt be revealing a virtual reality gadget that functions with the revolution. The source I got this from also states that Nintendo has been working with E-D in the past and with 3DH. At E3, Nintendo will allow revolution controllers to be tested and virtual reality suits for special guests. High Status 3DH staff will appear and describe about the new technology and how the brain reads this new technology. That's all I can reveal in this tip. Also about the pictures, I cannot release them, I was not even suppose to tell people about this." BIG thanks to this quality site for the above story.

I am in the middle of this one. One side of me thinks that there is a certain amount of truth to this rumor, and yet one side of me says that there is no way possible that this will come true. All I know is that this has been sparking a huge debate in the gaming world and has people talking. Everyone get ready- E3 is only 69 days away!

Independent company making Revolution Game!

Today, Crossbeam Studios Entertainment announced that they would be releasing a title, currently referred to as Thorn, for Nintendo's Revolution. The action-adventure game takes place in the future and features a character on the run from the authorities, trying to solve the sudden disappearance of an old military comrade on a planet that has yet to be fully explored. The game will definitely take advantage of Revolution's unique controller.

Also, Crossbeam Studios founder and lead designer Greg Szemiot also commented on his studio's progress with Orb. In case you missed it, Orb is an adventure game with RPG elements for the Revolution. Things are starting to take shape for our Revolution. Look for more info coming soon! Game ON!


Mario and DS Lite to release on same day?

There is a rumor going around that the next incarnation of Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS might ship the same day as the DS lite. If you do not know, the new Super Mario title will ship on May 7. What better way to move a new, redesigned system than to release a new Mario title on the SAME DAY! Cross your plungers gamers, More as this rumor develops!

Developers are excited...Are You??

It seems as though worries of how powerful our Revolution is seem to be disappearing. 3rd party developers are saying that they are absolutely loving the Revolution and especially the controller. We all knew that it was going to be great, but it's definitely nice to hear it from the mouths of those developing games for it. Another positive is that the system is easy to develop for and is inexpensive. The system itself is rumored to be around $150-$200. As mentioned before, we will be able to buy a Revolution, probably 2 or 3 games, and an extra controller for the same price of other new-gen systems. Everyone wins in the situation. The Revolution cant come fast enough guys and gals! What games do you guys want to see for the system?

9-1-2006 Zelda Release?

Real info on release dates is hard to come by. Delays, rumors, speculation and everything in between have plagued the triumphant return of our hero Link. Nintendo fans have been waiting for Zelda Twilight Princess like its the second coming. A game that will for sure give us Nintendo fans reason to brag. You're waiting for it. I'm waiting for it. Everyone is waiting for it. So when is IT coming?

Well September 1, 2006 seems to be the new date now. We all knew that it was probably going to be coming in the fall (Reggie on spike TV) and my source tells me September 1st. From there I did some more research and found out that a major retailer is listing the game to come out on September 1st also. We will keep you posted on any new details surrounding Zelda Twilight Princess. September seems like so far away....Game ON!

Cool Fan-Made Box for Revolution

Fan made art is always good and especially when it looks extremely professional. Here are some quick fanm-made box art for the upcoming Nintendo Revolution System. I only hope that the actual box looks half as sleek.


Interesting article

I was surfing the internet tryign to find some news and I came across this. On this AMAZING site, they delve deep into a supporting argument that Nintendo is planning on some 3-D projection with their next home console. Only time will tell gamers and we wont know for sure until E3, when the revolution is finally revealed in its entirety. Head over there for an interesting read and let them know what you think.

News Re-Cap

There has been a TON of news lately so I decided to write a quick post to cover it all. It has been hard to post everything that comes down the pipe line so thanks for bearing with me. I have been working on some things for the website while trying to keep you readers informed on all things related to Nintendo. Big things are in the works for the site so keep posted. Also- Let me know what changes YOU would like to see. E-mail me or post a comment. I would like to hear some feedback. Anyhow- here's a quick recap:

-Reggie Fils-Aime was on spike TV the other day and discussed some of Nintendo's upcoming plans. (Mainly redesign on DS and some zelda tidbits). Nothing huge but still cool to see Reggie on TV.

-For those who do not know, things aren't looking too good for our "friends" at SONY. Talks of delays and price have been swirling in a downward motion for them lately. Price of the system will be near the price of a small country and we might see an eventual delay of the system. This bodes well for the Big N because we all know the price of a revolution will be much cheaper than the price of a upgraded DVD player. Note to gamers- you will be able to buy a Nintendo Revolution System, another controller, and probably 2 games and some retro games FOR THE SAME PRICE as a PS3 unit.... Think about that when it comes time to buy.

-DS Lite will be released in Japan in March with an announcement of an American release soon. My guess-May. We'll keep you posted.

-DS will become more of a multi-media device. The innovative handheld will become a web browser and a portable TV. It will launch in Japan first then hopefully come here in the States.

-Free MARIO! Keep in mind that Super Princess Peach will be releasing this week. This cool new platform stars the ever so popular, princess peach. The roles have turned and Mario now is captured. You take on the role of Princess Peach in order to save Mario.

A mouth full! More to come, keep it here! E-mail me with your thoughts/ideas on what you want to see! Game ON!

Reggie Recap

For all those who missed it, our friend Reggie was on spike TV last night. The show was on pretty late, so I decided to DVR it. A couple of quotes that I found interesting on last nights show were; Zelda will be launching in the "fall". So much for a "early 2006" release huh?
Reggie also stated that the current version of the DS will eventually be phased out in favor of the new DS lite. He states that the current DS will continue to be sold but come August we might be only seeing Lite. He also stated that the DS Lite would be available in different colors. Black and white maybe???
When asked about when Nintendo will launch the Revolution, Reggie just smiled and said "Talk to me May 9th". As we all know, E3 will be held in the beginning of May and thus we will find out all details that are Revolution. Will Nintendo release this thanksgiving, or will they pull a surprise launch very reminiscent of apple's ipod nano? I am very excited about this May! Stay Tuned and Game ON!

2006; A "Revolution year"

Did you know that this year is a "revolution year". It's kind of like a leap year only with way better games. All kidding aside, we are now starting to get a steady flow of information on Nintendo's upcoming system; Nintendo Revolution. 3rd parties love the controller and seem to be lining up to make games for it. Tecmo, Square, EA, Capcom, Blitz, Atari, Ubi-soft..... The list goes on and on folks. Nintendo has stated that the Revolution will be a place where ideas will flourish and a new way of playing games will emerge.

We have already heard a number of rumors surrounding game development but nothing official has come out (besides Tecmo's golf game). As I write this post, I feel extremely excited and cannot wait to see what will happen in a couple of months from now. What other kind of add-ons will the controller be able to take the form of? What will the shell look like? E3 is not too far off and E3 no doubt be HUGE, but we may also get some solid info sooner rather than later. March 23 Nintendo will be holding a press conference on the upcoming system. Keep it here for all updates that is Nintendo. Thanks again for stopping by!

Revolution Game Revealed

GamersReports, reports that Tecmo has revealed their very first Revolution title in the form of Pangya, an extremely colorful golf game reminiscent of Mario Golf. The game stars anime style characters and bright locals. According to Tecmo, the game will be a port of the popular and online-enabled PC version, though we expect it to be considerably enhanced for the Revolutions unique controller. Imagine actually swinging your controller in order to tee off. Imagine moving your controller at a slow pace in order to make a game winning put. Let's keep our clubs crossed and hope that this one is online. If it is....We'll have to set up a tee time! Game ON!

Possible Revolution Test Screen?*RUMOR*

Here is a picture for a possible test screen for a Nintendo Revolution game. The game is entitled "Orb" and has been in development for a while. Orb is being described as an action/adventure title that incorporates RPG elements; much like our beloved Zelda franchise. This title is being developed by Crossbeam studios. Crossbeam has been designing and testing the game for the best part of 5 years, and have finally decided that the game would be best suited to Nintendo Revolution, but unfortunately, they have yet to get a hold of a software development kit

Could this be a sign of things to come? Hopefully; only time will tell. Things are looking promising though. We will keep you updated as more develops. Looks like we wont have to wait too much longer gamers. Hang in there! Game ON!


Here are 2 shots from the upcoming release of Earthbound (Mother 3 in Japan). We will keep you posted as more develops. Enjoy!

More Brain Training Coming To Japan

On March 30th, two new games will be released for the Nintendo DS as a continuation of the Brain Training series. The first is Hideo Kageyama's IQ Teacher DS which consists of mental puzzles and kanji and has been produced under the supervision of learning specialist, Hideo Kageyama. The second title in the brain training series that is coming out is also being produced under the supervision of Kageyama and is called Kanbayashi Shiki Nouryoku Kaihatsuhou Unou Kids DS. This game features three real life techniques that were used to train children in their right brain. Fun times indeed.

This series really intrigues me and I am looking forward to the American release. This series has been wildly successful in Japan and hopefully will see success here in States. What do you guys think? Are you going to pick up any of the brain training games when they are released here?

Nintendo DS just got A LOT better

Hot of the heels of the recent announcement of the DS lite, Nintendo seems to be on top of the world. Their DS is selling amazing, a redesign is on the way, and the Wi-Fi service has seen an amazing amount of support. What's next? According to usatoday, Nintendo plans to place download kiosks in retailers and a little game called METROID PRIME HUNTERS will support VOIP, or voice over IP. This is a huge step and will be welcomed with open arms when it's released. More later! Big props to B1izz79 for the link! Check out his quality site!

Gates Doesn't Like Revolution Controller

Bill Gate$ has expressed his dislike of Nintendo's upcoming three-dimensional controller. As found on, Gates goes on to state that Nintendo is "either incredibly wrong, or incredibly right." I am not sure what to make of this as I am biased towards Nintendo. Nintendo in my opinion has a great thing going, and am a HUGE Nintendo fan. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so what do you think? Do you agree with Mr. Gate$? Or do you think the Nintendo has made the right decision? I would tell you what I think, but you guys probably already know. Here's to innovation and new experiences in gameplay! Game ON!


I have seen a lot of things but a blatant rip off of the Nintendogs game is just wrong. In a move that is no surprise to me, Sony Computer Entertainment is now going to be coming out with a game that is remarkably similar to Nintendo's own; Nintendogs. Nintendogs was wildly popular pretty much everywhere it went. It sold wel in Japan and had the same response here in the States. A "spin off", or a similar game was inevitable, but this new game looks like a carbon copy of the Nintendo game. Come on Sony, be original.

Old School Nintendo games not fun?

In a move that is sure to make a ton of people mad Greg Canessa, of the xbox live arcade department, has stated that old-school Nintendo games are not fun anymore. He goes on to say that these games will not bode well in today's society. I don't know what kind of drink this person was drinking but I sure want some. The thought of playing a back catalog of more than 20 years of great gaming makes me grin from ear to ear. Is this fear or does this guy actually think he's got something going? I can assure you Mr. Canessa be able to play Nintendo games from over 20 years is Nostalgic Nirvana! I will have a ton of fun playing these titles. GAME ON!

This year, the KING will go back on his Thrown...Ramblings of a Nintendo fan.

Maybe it's the fact the I am a Nintendo fan. Maybe it's hope that I am holding onto. Maybe it's an old school gamer in me rooting for the underdog. Maybe, just maybe, it's reality. Will Nintendo deliver its knockout blow when they release the Nintendo Revolution System? Will they capture their reign as champion of the console ring? There are a number of factors that seem to be aligning in Nintendo's sky that could very well bring them back to the top of the mountain. Gamers-THIS YEAR the king of video games goes back on their thrown! First-Nintendo Revolution System (NRS) will be a small, quiet, CHEAP system. It will be cheap to buy and cheap to develop for. 3rd party developers are already used to the architecture of the system due to its similarity of the gamecube, so producing a game might have a nice turn around; time-wise. Let's just hope that 3rd parties will flock to the system like they say. 2nd- Online. Nintendo DS has had an unbelievable following. More than 3 million people signed on the service and over 500,000 regular online users. Super Smash online, Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, and others will pave the future for Nintendo. 3rd-Image. Nintendo is trying to shed its "kiddy" image. They need to produce a sleek and attractive image. With a stylish new look, they are on the right track. 4th-Zelda Twilight Princess. This is the big one. We all know that NRS will be backwards compatible, so I think Nintendo will be releasing this BOMBSHELL close to, or on the release of the system. Lastly- The wild card; The 3-dimensional controller. Perfect fit for FPS, RTS, and Innovation. The controller will have a "shell" to make it more of a conventional controller, but the true test will be how companies will utilize this "freestyle" controller. There is also one more thing......Oh Mario......where have you been hiding? We miss you so much and hope to see you soon! Like I said before, THIS YEAR THE KING WILL GO BACK ON HIS THROWN! GAME ON!!!!
