Where Nintendo loyalists reside.

Dead

2007-12-14T09:07:09.536-08:00

I wanted to let you my loyal reader (yeah you wii-man) know that as far as new content is concerned this site/blog is dead. Fear not though, each death breathes new life. I've been working on a bigger better full-fledged site and it should be up and running shortly so be sure to keep checking back here every week, well maybe monthly (shit happens with me a lot) 'cuz I'll post the link on here once it's ready for viewing.



Quick thoughts

2007-10-07T00:38:12.410-08:00

I know I said the next post would be King, A Return to Form, but I decided that wasn't such an appropriate topic at this time. I mean sure the Wii is the best selling console right now but it just hasn't lived up to what I dreamt it would be. Don't get me wrong I love the dang thing but at this time its sort of a love hate relationship. I love the experience and feel of it, there is so much potential for the Wii but I hate the fact that many or even most developers are currently only giving us glorified tech demos and expect us gamers to be satisfied. I love video games, especially the ones that have deep rich experiences to be had. Those are too few and far between on Wii. Currently Nintendo is working this casual gamer angle and honestly that's real good and all for the industry but really what about those of us playing games for 10 plus years now? All the while Nintendo have sung the tune that they aren't abandoning the hardcore gamer but they have done little to reinforce that. Sure there was Zelda and Metroid, along with the upcoming Mario and Smash, but aside from those and Mario Kart next year Wii owners have little to be excited about. I mean its no mystery why the game attach rate for the Wii is barely above three. When I look at the laundry list of crap being released for Wii and then I look at the 360 camp I can't help but think that to truly have a hardcore experience I might need one. I mean Mario and Smash are fun but surely neither are hardcore. Metroid and Zelda are, but once they're over that's exactly it, over. I mean the Wii has such an incredible interface for two of my favorite genres; FPS' and Adventure games. Yet in terms of shooters the Wii has the most piss poor of any console and adventure games are practically nonexistent on the thing. Maybe I'm just making a fuss for nothing, after all it's not even a year old. Who knows maybe the whole casual games thing was Nintendo's genius marketing plan for the first year just to push expansion and maybe we have an exciting '08 to look forward to.I just want deep rich shooter and adventure games for my Wii. I don't want to have to own a 360 to play a great shooter, I want that on my Wii. Either way I may have looked and longed but I haven't been swayed by the 360 or dare I say it ps3 camps and Smash will keep me busy for quite some time, but I just hope Nintendo decides to turn it up and truly capitalize on what the Wii can truly be.These are just some of my thoughts on the way things are right now. As I get back into regularly posting they'll get a lot stronger and more diverse. I mean I wouldn't be a true loyalist if I wasn't critical of every aspect of all things Nintendo.One good thing to take from everything so far is that the ps2 won last generation and it had an infinite number of crap games so as long as wii get our share of blockbusters history just might repeat itself under another name.[...]



I'm back...sort of

2007-08-30T21:35:55.255-08:00

Well I've been gone for almost an entire year now and I must say I'm disappointed in myself, but alas I still have life so it's time to move forward. There is so much to talk about. So much has transpired in my absence and I can't wait to get back in the full swing of things. It seems I still have to make good on a promise and I intend to do so. That being said my article "King, A Return to Form" is due up first followed by a long line of interesting topics. Now as for the 'sort of' in this title, it means I'm back up and running on the blog again with the long overdue changes to come, but I won't be getting those up right away. I need to let things iron out a bit around here first but I guarantee I won't be absent for more than a months time. So be patient with me as I set back up things and get organized for the new things to come. As for the loyalists who still came here in my ridiculously long absence, you have my deepest apologies and I will make it up to you. So check back in a few weeks and see how things have changed.



BLIND AMBITION

2008-02-11T04:44:35.243-08:00

Sorry it took me so long to get back guys, life's busy. The next gen war is truly fast approaching, and I for one can't wait to see this war unfold. With Microsoft slightly in front to Sony's two day jump on Nintendo, things are going to get real interesting. (Chock that up as the understatement of the year). Microsoft is well underway and waiting patiently to drop a few bombs on the market. Bombs that they think will hold off or at least slow down the competition.Just a few days before Sony unleashes their mammoth (both size and price), and Nintendo throws a monkey wrench in the formula with their clever Wii; Microsoft is set to release Gears of War on the gaming world. Even being the avid Nintendo fan that I am, there was a moment when I wanted to play that game. Now don't get me wrong I am as loyal a fan as they get, but there was a moment where I just said "WOW, I want to play that!". For an entire moment I wished Nintendo would make it happen. Then that moment was over. The game has serious potential though ( potential being the key word). I mean it could quite possibly give Halo a run for its money as 'best first person shooter' ever made, or it could be another entirely ho-hum EA made Bond game. Okay that's being a bit too mean but you get my point. Either way Microsoft is hyping it up as the next great thing to slice bread. Come November 12th we'll all find out how right or wrong they are. Emergence Day versus two consoles! Don't thing that's enough? Well neither does Microsoft, they decided they're hungry for a pb&j sandwich but with PS3 and Wii filling. As they are going to release the true nuke on the market, Halo 3, sometime in March. With the 17th and 19th of November just around the corner the 360 is bucking and yelling for attention.My guess is that Microsoft is banking on their mediocre install base of 5 million (WORLDWIDE!) plus those two giant games will be more than enough to stand strong against the competition. It's not going to be easy though, as being the first console out doesn't guarantee success (dreamcast anyone?); Nintendo is coming along with an ingenious mass market approach and Sony is riding its brand name, so things could start to get a little tough for Microsoft. I see brainstorms for Halo 4 already. Okay, maybe that's a bit of a ways off since Microsoft is trying to convince the world that Halo 3 is the culmination of it all, the big finale. You never know money walks.Honestly I don't see 360 or PS3 standing up to Wii very well. I'm telling you my idol Shigeru Miyamoto, along with Mr. Iwata has an evil plan to take over the world and Wii is the gateway. Oh I'm going to love being a part of every single moment of it. Wii is set to do what every man wants, his girlfriend playing video games with him, oh yeah and the rest of the family too. I for one can't wait to hook my Wii up and go nuts on games like Excite Truck, Red Steel, Wii Sports, Madden 07, and of course the King of all games, The Legend of Zelda. (That's my top 5 launch titles by the way). A lady right there with me makes it even better. I think you'll agree, at least I hope you do. The 360 has some solid games don't get me wrong, but they just don't bring anything new to the table. The core audience will be there but I don't see any growth beyond that. Not to mention 5 million sold is not nearly enough of a jump to beat the PS3 and definitely not enough smell the Goliath of a shock winner, Wii. I've experienced first hand what Nintendo's attempting with this console and it's guaranteed to wreak havoc on the industry. (You heard it here first--Wii by a landslide). Right now 360 is all smiles no worries but I'd brace for impact , the whole industry should. Someone is going down hard and I see Nintendo running from the cops. Wii is going to put an ass whooping on Sony and Microsoft, the kind you never forget. WHEW! I'm beginning to ramble (I hate when I do that). I'll get back to you soon on Nintendo's return to true form. "KING, A Return to For[...]



The Arrogance that is Sony

2008-02-11T04:44:55.610-08:00

Sony, the current console King, is doing whatever they damn well please; no doubt they feel as if they've already won the next round of console war infamy. From announcing a $600 price point to claiming that same price point as far too cheap for their mammoth PS3 console, nothing seems to hint that they have even thought of Wii the consumers. For some strange reason they seem to think that whatever they say or do is gold. It seems like everyday we get another exec who gives a speech or statement where in a nutshell they say we're Sony, we're the Shit!!! And rightfully so...right....right, right? WRONG!!! The PS3 has a ton of features that they believe set it apart from the other two, both in terms of power and expandability. The PS3s multi-thread processors are impressive for sure, and robust to say the least, but Sony has forgotten its roots. They got where they are by catering to fans, now they are completely disregarding the fans.
The PS3 is crammed full of features that range from playback of their highly touted blue ray discs, to the ability to upgrade periodically almost doubling as a PC. A mega PC as a matter of fact, have you seen the size of that thing?!!!!! With so many features out of the box(well the $600 box) how can they do anything but crush the competition.

The thing is though, I'm not so sure that gamers are willing to accept a plethora of, quite frankly, unnecessary features at the expense of their pockets. Granted Sony faithful will dry their tears once they get their claws on that hefty machine.

And herein lies Sony's biggest flaw; the diehard Sony fans aren't that many. Whoa! You say...just wipe that silly look off your face and let me explain. Sony sold over 100 million PS2 units this past generation not because they had 100 million die hard Sony fans. Sony won this generation by being the console of choice for casual gamers. And with Microsoft being well into the fray already and Nintendo looking better than ever, it's not such an open shut case anymore. I don't see a $600 system being the console of choice for a casual gamer. A casual gamer plays a game every now and then and there is no way they'll warrant buying a $600 system to use only every now and then. Expecting the casual gamer to walk out of their local Gamestop with a $600 system is insanity in its purest form. What's worse is they actually believe 10 million casual gamers are ready and willing, I don't even think they have 10 million die-hards ready and willing. It's seems that this generation stuck its head in Sony's door for a quick peek and caught Sony smelling their own ass, and from the door it stinks like ass but the blood rush to the head got Sony smelling roses. So with a "my shit don't stink" attitude, I see Sony losing substantial market share this time around.

Next up is the overzealous, hyper-anxious, newcomer to the biz, Microsoft's Xbox 360. Stay tuned for "Blind Ambition!"



THE CONSOLE WARS

2008-02-11T04:45:56.173-08:00

Well here I am again, FINALLY!!! And what a nap it was. But what an even better awakening I've had. I couldn't have asked for a better time to pluck the yamps from my eyes and stretch my arms and jaws. I seem to have awoken at the dawn of war. THE CONSOLE WARS! Yes people, the console wars are just getting underway(well just about!) and I know I'm not the only one wetting their pants, with drool of course, over the mayhem that's about to overtake our very lives; not to mention men's hygiene. There could never be a more ample title for a more ample event. Two Goliath company's duking it out, all for the rights to the thrown; wait, what's that you say......Huh.....I didn't catch that.....what, there's a third company in the running. A third company huh? Well don't keep me in suspense, who is it? NINTENDO!!!! What, Nintendo still makes consoles, I thought they died with the Super Nintendo! That's right people Nintendo is back and better than ever. The response Wii has received has been resounding to say the least, and like Nintendo said, the name jokes are just about dead(just about). This David of a console is about to prove one important fact, originality never dies.

The prince of these wars is poised and ready as he awaits the day his father, the king, turns the thrown over to him. Sony's PS3 is sitting pretty receiving word from the frontlines as his big poppa PS2 still rages war against the cocky newcomer, Xbox 360 and the ill-fated, misunderstood wizard known as the Gamecube. With much stronger opposition this time around beauty is only mind deep and if you ask me the PS3 really resembles that fat, lazy, and brutally spoiled rich kid who has hands softer than a baby's ass. Both Microsoft and Nintendo have been getting down and dirty, grinding away hard at work while Sony has been resting on its moral's(or lack there of); only finding time to exercise their jaws to stuff their face and say some god awful dumb shit. Microsoft is already on the rampage, having launched a massive campaign that's nearly one year old; no doubt damaging Sony's stranglehold on the console market. With Microsoft already setup on the battlefield, Nintendo and Sony about to launch later this year, things are just starting to get exciting. Will brute force and reputation dominate this generation, will young arrogance find its way to the thrown, or will David slay Goliath a few more times? Whatever the case it's gonna be one hell of a war.


Oh...............you thought that was it, you thought that was the post, don't make me laugh. I'm just getting started...this is just the intro. Part one, "The Arrogance that is Sony" is up first.



CRAZIEST POST EVER!!!

2008-02-11T04:46:23.490-08:00

There is so much going on in the industry right now you wouldn't believe it all if I told you. One thing is for sure though, it's looking real good for Nintendo. I know there hasn't been a lot of new info circulating lately but behind closed curtains activity is running rampant. From a whole ton of new third party support to WiiConnect24 being a much larger player in the online gaming market than anyone suspects.

Well I know we all are aware of the similarities between Nintendo's WiiConnect24 service and another certain live service. What's the point? I thought you'd never ask. Now before I tell you this I want you to brace for impact because not only is it ludacris it's damn well unbelieveable, but I told you it's the CRAZIEST POST EVER!!! How nuts would you say I am if I told you that Nintendo owns the rights to a certain very lucrative and ever growing online gaming market. Well I'm telling you so. It's been brought to my knowledge from a source far more insane than me this is indeed the case. Now being the realist that I am I had a hard time believing it when I first heard this, hell I'm still having a hard time believing it, but my source did bring up some good points. First off Nintendo has had this patent since early on in Gamecube days, far before any online gaming network came into play. Granted patents are normally filed years before they come into play. But my source has told me that Nintendo beat them to the punch on this one. The source claims that the reason Wii has garnered so much positive support from the competition is the fact that they are at Nintendo's mercy in terms of the online gaming market. So why didn't Nintendo release this service for Gamecube? Glad you asked. Well the reason being was what you already know. Nintendo wasn't too sure about the online society and whether or not placing a price tag on the services would damage revenues. So instead of releasing it themselves they let someone else take the risk, lay in the cut and collect if all goes right. Well I think its safe to say that everything has gone exceptionally well, and Nintendo is now primed to take it over the way they envisioned it. Sounds bogus I know, heck, it probably is, but one thing's for sure Nintendo has some shots they holding on to for the moment.

Got to cut this short for now...



Our Time in the Sun

2008-02-11T04:46:42.753-08:00

Well E3 is just around the corner and a few things are becoming more evident with each passing second. From Red Steel to the nunchuck attachment accelerometer to launch day Mario, things are beginning to brighten up for our friends in the land of the rising sun. You know, there are times when I get in heated arguments over the upcoming console wars and you wouldn't believe how they look at me when I mention that Nintendo is gonna come out on top this time around. To them it seems as likely as one of those other two leaving the market altogether. Nonetheless things are materializing for us and I must say they're looking damn good. I mean, to say that I know that we are in an excellent position leading up to E3 and launch day is an understatement of the highest caliber.There were plenty of mistakes that led to gamecube doing a measly 22 million worldwide just about. A few of the those are quite obvious and some are hidden within the confines of Nintendo itself. One major issue that a lot of people didn't think much of(actually, according to launch day 'Cube sales they did), was the absence of Mario. The Gamecube was the worst selling Nintendo console to date and it was the first to launch without Mario, simple coincidence maybe but Nintendo apparently isn't willing to give it another shot to test that theory. This new Mario, they've been crafting it for just about six years now. Yeah I know Sunshine launched in '02 but this Mario was what they were working on before they decided to send Mario on a much needed vacation. See, Sunshine was the necessary sidestep they took because in terms of the development process, the ideas they were crafting for the true Mario 64 sequel were literally impossible on Gamecube hardware. Times are different now though and the masterpiece is finally ready to be realized. One reason to rest easy Nintendites.Another issue was the lack of third party support and more precisely, Mature content. You would not believe the amount of people who still to this day cast off Nintendo as a kiddy system. No doubt Nintendo wants to uphold their family friendly status but at the same time they have wisely decided that garnering a broader audience doesn't come at the sacrifice of family friendliness. Now they haven't completely decided to accept every Mature game on their system but they're moving in a direction somewhat close. They currently have seven Teen rated games in the launch pipeline, so improvement is looking positive. For all you know there might even be a surprise Mature launch title in the mix. As far as third party goes I really don't have to touch on that too much 'cuz in the last few days alone numerous developers have announced their support and some even mentioned games in development. Two reasons to rest easy Nintendites.The Gamecube, though a great system, lacked an identity. When people looked at what was already on the market and compared it to the 'Cube they really didn't see much that stood out to sway them. Sure the Cube had its bright spots, namely SSBM but that was nearly not enough. This however is not the case with the 'Revolution'. The controller alone has lit the industry on fire and the gas is in Nintendo's hands, and I have a sneaky suspicion they about to feed the blaze. Not to mention those oh so downplayed graphics. Let me just be the first to tell you that 18 of the 20 launch titles look much better than anything currently available out there. A mature looking Link left people in tears at last year's E3 but this year not a soul present will be able to control their jaws; including our damned "I'm so cocky I disgust myself" competitors. Three reasons to rest easy Nintendites.In terms of the western market, Nintendo has definitely kicked the bucket in the past, but gone are those ever so dark days. Not only have they catered to the western market with the free-hand controller but they hav[...]



High Praise

2008-02-11T04:46:59.367-08:00

Well I know that you're aware of that time of the year; you know the time where people go nuts checking sites and seeing the most unbelieveable news. Yep April 1st, better known as April Fools, personally I'm not a fan and that' s why I avoided posting yesterday. I don't like all the crap that comes with the date so I pay it no mind. But as to what I'm here to post about: nothing groundbreaking, nothing new, just here to show my love for the genius that is Nintendo.

I just got my hands on Metroid Prime: Hunters and one word-- WOW!!! The game is freaking gorgeous in play and not to mention those B-E-A-UTIFUL cutscenes. I mean, I simply can't put into words how I felt when I first started playing the damn thing. I knew it would look nice of course, it's Nintendo, but I was completely blown away. Not to mention I'm only 25% done with the game and I still have yet to play multi or WiFi as of yet. I can't wait to experience it in full. This excites me for a number of reasons but the one that has me cracking my skull on the roof is the fact that, if this is what they can do with DS hardware imagine what the 'Revolution' Metroid and games in general are going to look like. Nintendo really out did themselves this time. This game alone should silence all the critics as to whether or not 'Revolution' will be powerful enough; the DS is proving itself to be far more innovative than that other thing and on par if not better at times in terms of graphical prowess. I don't know if you remember me saying that NST was supposedly developing an in-house FPS for 'Revolution', well after looking at Hunters there should be no doubt as to whether they are capable or not. Also If one of the Hunters are indeed gonna get their own game, my money is on Weavel. To me he seems like he has the best abilities and coolest demeanor and his world-from what the intro showed-seemed to be the most interesting of them all.

I know you want the big posts with all the info and such but I can only give as they come so have faith and the changes that I mentioned before are coming just be patient. Then again you have to be, being a Nintendo fan. That's all I got right now but....



Bits and Pieces

2008-02-11T04:47:14.838-08:00

Finally an opportunity to post!!!! Don't expect much just yet.

So I bet your hoping that I have the juiciest and most news worthy information ever. However, from the title of this post you should've already guessed that to be untrue. What I've brought with me this time is just a few things that have been on my mind.

I'm sure you've heard of Nintendo "Go" by now. Strange name for the "Revolution" don't you think? Well not really, from what I've read "Go" means five. Which means that Nintendo's next system could simply be called N5. How likely this is I leave that up to you to ponder, however, that does lead to my next thought. Being that this is Nintendo's 5th home console, and being that they are recreating gaming as we know it, I'm led to believe that the release of this console symbolizes a very special time for Nintendo. What I'm getting at is that I believe that N5 will launch on 08-23-06 instead of the very popular holiday season belief. I say this because that date is the anniversary of Nintendo's foray into the console business. But hey maybe I'm just rusty from all this other junk I've been dealing with lately.

I could get into all the details of certain launch titles, well not all the details but what I've learned through research but my fingers still squeak, let me get some WD-40 and maybe what I bring to the next post will leave you salivating for all things Nintendo. If you haven't been already your a damn sinner by the way.

On a more serious note, I am unstoppable with Dry Bones. Let the games begin; shortly.



Dawn

2006-02-15T15:22:04.633-08:00

It sure feels good to be back. While I was gone it felt as though I was locked up in the dark like an animal, but no more. I'm free at last, free at last; no I wasn't in jail, although it did feel like it.

So much has happened since I left I don't know where to begin.

First and foremost the DS Lite. Spectacular!! I love what Nintendo has done to it although I would've enjoyed slightly bigger screens. The new design is sleek and extremely eye catching, this just spells more trouble for that other thing. Not to mention all the new web features. The DS Lite will definitely be in my collection.

On the console side of things the big news seems to be Twilight Princess. I know every Zelda fan wants that game now but that doesn't look like it'll happen anytime soon. Word is that Nintendo is dropping it as a Gamecube title and making it a 'Revolution' launch title. How true this is I don't know as of yet but you better believe I'm going to find out.

There's more to tell and I will in time but I'm just starting to get things back to normal so give me a minute. Also I don't want to get ahead of myself but I'm going to be doing a few things that I think you'll enjoy. Be patient though.

As for my friend code I'll post it this weekend for you, so you can challenge me, if you dare, in MKDS.



Hiatus

2005-12-04T09:09:25.896-08:00

Just letting you know, I'm about to be MIA for about 2 months. There are a few career advancing moves I have to take. I do not know how often or even if I'll be able to post, and it'll be at least 2 months before I am able to post regularly again. I do promise that I will post as often as I can within this 2 month period.

I ask you to bare with me while I am going through this transitional phase but upon my return there will be bigger and better things in store.


Stay loyal in my absence Nintendites.



Nothing

2005-12-02T12:33:59.456-08:00

Well I'm as sad as can be. It came and past and nothing new was revealed.

Mr. Miyamoto took the stage and the highlight of his speech was "There's another secret." That was it, he went on to say he wouldn't go into that at the present but at a future date. Aside from that, the only note worthy thing was that Valve has given much praise to the 'revolution'. Valve is the company responsible for the Half-Life series and Counterstrike as well as some other quality titles.

And the third party support continues to grow.

Although I know why Nintendo has chosen this route, I was really hoping that he'd at the very least reveal the final name, but alas it was not to be. I guess the news for this year is done and we'll have to wait until E3 06 to get more info. I do not know if they'll be at the show in January as of this moment, but then again I am not in the mood to know.

I Love all that is Nintendo but at times like this I wish..... But seriously though this is what Miyamoto does. Though I was praying for some form of info on the 'revolution', there was some part of me that never scratched this off as a possibility. Well, you win some you lose some, and I know for a fact that with this amount of secrecy surrounding 'revolution' there is no way Nintendo will come up short on their delivery.

And the wait continues.................



Some names I came up with

2005-12-01T09:37:30.146-08:00

NIS - Nintendo Interactive System
Nintendo INEN - Nintendo INteractive ENtertainment
NCIE - Nintendo Capital of Interactive Entertainment
NION - Nintendo Interactive Online Network

This list is in order of possibility. Hopefully this is the final day of endless guessing.

I've been trying for some time now to figure out all that is 'revolution', and it finally hit me that I'm going about it the wrong way. So I decided to post all pieces to the mysterious puzzle that is 'revolution' and enlist the help of my fellow Nintendites.

We all know of Hollywood right. Well Hollywood in this case stands for entertainment center. Which in turn is the new controller. Then there is Broadway which stands for more bandwidth, in this case it means efficient and easier to develop for. Then if you further analyze the word Bandwidth it means the amount of data that can be passed along a communications channel in a given period of time. Then there is the Port which has numerous meanings that apply to the current situation. First it means a logical channel or channel endpoint in a communications system. It can also mean an entrance to or exit from a data network. Finally it also refers to a connection point for a peripheral device.

Each one of these terms is directly correlated to what Nintendo has in store with the 'revolution'. First we know Hollywood and Broadway are the CPU and GPU of the 'revolution' that is being developed by IBM and ATI. Then the term Bandwith is directly correlated to the term Broadway and Port as you know is the 'revolution's' ability to utilize many different expansions.Now to figure this out you have to keep a few things in mind. First keep it simple and cost effective, then remember it's gaming that we're to think of. And finally the last thing to remember is that Hollywood pertains to the controller so what exactly is Broadway and how it is implemented within the 'revolution' is what we need to figure out.

I've devoted a lot of brain power to this matter but I just can't figure it out; your help is more than welcome. I've found that trying to figure out the ways of Nintendo has been most taxing and rewarding at the same time. I mean to figure out what those great minds are hiding would be a great pleasure and would definitely fill me with an intense level of satisfaction.



More to Come

2005-11-30T06:30:02.446-08:00

I apologize for the delay but it happens sometimes.

I'm sure you've heard of this email that was supposedly sent out by Nintendo yesterday that pins a May 9th date as 'revolution's' official unveiling. I'm not saying it's not from them but whether it is or not it doesn't touch on anything we didn't already know.

December 2 is fast approaching and I still have high hopes for what Nintendo will actually do with their presence at this conference. Of course I do not expect anything too major but a few juicy details would serve well to tide us over until the 'revolution's' E3 2006 debut. A final name would be enough to keep me salivating for more. As details so frequently change within Nintendo a whole lot is clearly uncertain pertaining to this Friday. But then again Nintendo would have it no other way.

So heads up and fingers crossed, we've waited this long for more info, 2 more days should be a breeze.

Also I wanted to touch on something else. I'm sure Nintendite is not your only stop for all things Nintendo, but I urge you to beware of where you place your trust. There are people and places on the net where perpetrators run wild trying to discredite Nintendo and lure fans away. I ask that you not be fooled by these horrendous atrocities. Many of these falsehoods are so blatantly obvious as they state things that deter from what Nintendo is actually striving for this gen. Nintendo is striving to build and expand its community why would they do things to isolate every individual, it just opposes everything Nintendo has always stood for. If you haven't been privy to any of these lies consider yourself lucky.

Those other companies know no bounds when it comes to stooping low. They pay people to throw discrediting rumors at Nintendo, who is clearly going about their business with a surefire plan of success. I speak to you in all honesty when I say this generation of gaming is in for a major suprise, the powerhouse that was once Nintendo will surface again. Nintendo will dominate the market when 'revolution' hits next year; this isn't an empty fanboy promise, rather it's a statement coming from someone who was privileged to have a peak behind the mysterious veil that is Nintendo.

2006 is the rebirth of the greatness that is Nintendo.



Developer Support

2005-11-23T22:07:39.013-08:00

A lot of people out there seem to think that the 'revolution' is stupid and won't get any 3rd party support. Those people need to remember the situation. Nintendo doesn't want more than the right amount of 'revolution' information to be released. The 'revolution' will have far greater 3rd party support than what people think. So though some developer comments may seem like their not interested don't be fooled secrecy is Nintendo's middle name. When the time is right the flood of developer support will be unveiled to many critics suprise. Let's just hope December 2 goes as planned and quite possibly a glimpse of that support will be unveiled.



Next gen

2005-11-22T00:14:14.430-08:00

Well the next gen of gaming is here, though prematurely it's here nonetheless. As you know I am a lover of only Nintendo consoles so their desperate rush into next gen means absolutely nothing to me. I just want to say: the war has begun and I hope (not) those bastards use their 6-8 month headstart wisely 'cuz when 'revolution' comes, IT'S OVER. It has begun, may the best console (*cough* 'revolution') win.



Nintendo's next move

2005-11-22T00:01:09.000-08:00

Now what I'm about to say is no way representative of how Nintendo plans to expand their market-not that I know of at least.

I'm sure you've heard by now that there have been talks of a possible Metroid movie and more recently a Legend of Zelda movie. Well this is my train of thought: Nintendo should create their own movie studio. I think this would be a perfect step for a couple of reasons. First, having their own movie studio would prevent the scum suckers from quite possibly banking off of their properties. It's no stranger to us all that one of Nintendo's major competitors has their own movie division. To prevent them from even cashing in 1% profit a Nintendo movie studio should be taken into consideration.

The second reason simply is expandability. Creating a movie studio would enable Nintendo to reach a broader audience, and it would clearly shed those stupid ideas that Nintendo is just for kids. I know Nintendo prefers to maintain its stance solely focusing on gaming but from a business standpoint this is a logical, not to mention cost effective venture. Now, the studio though owned and operated by Nintendo wouldn't be subjected to just Nintendo properties but many outside movies as well.

I say this because I for one am a young up and coming director and I'd be damned if any of my work ever gains life under those scum. I want my work to be affiliated with Nintendo. For instance, I do a movie that's real good(under their studio of course) and they decide 'hey let's make it into a game'. It would be a Nintendo exclusive and and quite possibly rake in a ton of cash for both me and Nintendo. But yeah I can only hope Nintendo is wise to this and decide on it. Either way my work-if ever made into games, will never grace a console outside of Nintendo and if they don't want it on their console then it won't be a game. I just would really hate to see those jerks cash in off of Nintendo properties, the idea itself is blasphemy.



Almost here

2005-11-17T12:03:43.596-08:00

With Mario Kart DS finally out on store shelves and Nintendo WiFi up and running enthusiasts are looking forward to the next big announcement from within the confines of Nintendo. I'm sure many of you are more than up to speed on the fact that Mr. Miyamoto will be giving a presentation on December 2, followed by Mr. Kojima. If this is news to you, yes it's true one right after the next, Miyamoto then Kojima.

So why am I making note of this already old news, well it's the content within these presentations that hold the real treasure(Speaking of Treasure). There has been much speculation as to what Miyamoto is actually going to reveal in his speech.

From what I could dig up Miyamoto is set on debuting the consoles official name and price point. From what I understand a few games will make mention but nothing too informative. It is also a huge possibility-but not guaranteed, that specs of the console will come to light. Now I don't want to get you all excited for nothing so keep your fingers crossed as nothing is set in stone; which is always the case with Nintendo. This talk has been making the rounds inside the offices of Nintendo most recently, and the high traffic of this news within Nintendo leads me to believe every word of it. Also expect some new info on LoZ: Twilight Princess as well.

And what of Kojima you ask: Oh nothing much except for the fact that he plans to reveal the genre of his 'revolution' game and quite possibly it's title. Of course he is not going to spend the better part of an hour speaking of his new games genre, but unfortunately I have been unable to find out more about his presentation.

So here's to hoping that Nintendo throws us that sweet ass bone we've been waiting on.



New Nintendo Website

2005-11-15T17:21:51.340-08:00

I know I promised some info of some kind but I just had to push that back when I saw the newly designed Nintendo website. The site is absolutely stunning, it's gorgeous, it's everything beautiful and good I could possibly ever imagine and far beyond that.

This is by far the biggest step into expandability that Nintendo has taken thus far. The design is vibrant and very user friendly. When I pulled it up it simply jumped right off the page and bitch slapped me right in the face, and I'm the hardcore Nintendo Loyalist. I can only imagine what it did to all the doubters, haters, and nonbelievers. And to think this is only the first step.

This change was clearly brought on to coincide with the new but spectacular Nintendo WiFi Connection. The changes are being made people; how long did you think Nintendo would put up with being pushed around by those other jerks and all the nay-sayers and critics. Nintendo isn't playing this time around, they're "kicking ass and taking names." You know I always knew from the outset that hiring Reggie Fils-Aime was the way to go. Clearly the fruits are beginning to ripen. Oh and if you think this is big or if you don't, just wait until you see what Nintendo has in store for you with the 'revolution'.

This new move is just a measly one handed shove on the industry, with the 'revolution' they're going to completely topple the game industry as we know it. A renewed dawn is upon us people, the Nintendo Empire is rising to the top once again.



Revobest

2005-11-15T15:06:34.266-08:00

Relax my friend I'm still here. I apologize for the long overdue post but I have been putting my skills to the test in order to go places quite few are able to. I've been digging and digging and trust me when I say, around these times 'revolution' info is damn near impossible to come by. Now I don't want to make any guarantees that I can't fulfill so I'll just say I'm doing my best and I'll have something for you later today or tomorrow. By the way revobest glad your so damn loyal, that's a trait very hard to find these days. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. Be back soon.



'Revolution' not final name

2005-11-09T15:56:52.756-08:00

Well I took it upon myself to do some extra resourcing on the topic of 'revolution', granted at this time there isn't much out there but nonetheless. I happened to come across one minor detail that I thought I would share. I have it upon solid grond that 'revolution' is 100% not the final name of Nintendo's mysterious next gen system.
Opinions have been mixed as to whether or not it should indeed be the final name. I for one will be happy to see it go because I like 'revolution' as a code name but as a final name no way. Granted that the name of the system by no means prevents my purchase of it but I would just like something a little more 'tongue catchy'( I coundn't think of a better phrase). I know some of you are saying well what is the final name, sorry I can't go any further with this, but look on the bright side you only have to wait less than a month for it. Be patient it's coming soon.



Mario Kart DS

2005-11-07T11:59:14.783-08:00

Well I know everyone is just begging for more 'revolution' info at this point, but I'm afraid that's not going to happen. Nintendo has another focus at the moment. That's promoting Nintendo WiFi Connection and the amazing Mario Kart DS. Not to worry though more 'revolution' details are coming, thing is you have to wait until after Mario Kart DS hits store shelves. MKDS will no doubt ease the pain of waiting and I for one am going to take full advantage of the down time.

Mario Kart DS takes the series back to its roots and I for one am happy to see the return to its roots. Not to say I didn't adore Double Dash, because I did and I still do, but the solo racing just seems far more exciting to me. Now I have yet to get my hands on the game but from what I've seen it looks to be amazing. In my opinion it has the potential to be the best Mario Kart yet. Yeah MK:DD was great but it by no means surpassed MK64 in terms of fun and addictiveness. And now with MKDS there are so many new items that just add a whole new level of excitement. Items have always been the defining characteristic of the series and they are what set the series apart from all the wannabe kart racers cluttering the market. However new items aren't the biggest addition this time around.

For the first time in the history of Nintendo gaming we'll be able to take the war online. I for one have been longing for this for some time now, and to finally be able just makes me lose myself with joy. I'm glad that I was patient with all Nintendo's decisions because this first fooray into online gaming looks entirely promising. And this is only the beginning, just imagine what taking the 'revolution' online will be like. I can't wait!!!!!

It is now only a week until Mario Karts release and I can't wait to jump online and dominate the leaderboards. Personally though I wont be online until the 28th or later due to the fact that I'm waiting for that sweet hot rod red bundle. For those of you who get MKDS next week you better practice up good 'cuz once I get mines it's straight to the top for me and I don't intend to look back. See you online my fellow Nintendites.



Middleman

2005-11-03T18:37:51.166-08:00

It has come to my attention that many people are not familiar with the term 'middleman'. I want to clarify this for those people because it is growing ever so irritating having to explain to each and every one of them.

When I say the Gamecube was the middleman of this generation it refers to only one thing, capabilities. The Gamecube wasn't as powerful as the one that loves green but at the same time it was far more powerful than the one that loves shapes. Therefore it was somewhere in between the two. Now I love Nintendo more than anyone I know but the fact remains, the Gamecube was left bringing up the rear this entire generation. In other words it's dead last, that's right last. Gamecube was the middleman of this generation and it paid for it but Nintendo fans can rest easy for the same fate does not await 'revolution'.

The 'revolution' might not be the most graphically powerful system but graphics is far from all it has going for it. Like I've said many times before the 'revolution' has creativity and innovation going for it, which will prove to be a much greater hit on the industry than many people suggest. The one with the Spiderman letters is clearly the graphical horse of next gen and the modified CPU is left straggling somewhere in the middle. Now I believe the fate of the middleman lives within this CPU and anyone who doesn't like it, well that's their business and not mine.

Next generation is truly going to be an epic war of the consoles which is why I don't believe in multiple console ownership. Many people go that route and that's their business, but in war every casualty counts or in this case every penny. Many believe that there is room for three consoles on the market but the truth of the matter is that's one too many. Someone will fall come next generation and I have made my loyalty known 'cuz I intend to do everything in my power to keep my company alive. I believe that everyone should align themselves with their preferred console, hopefully that's 'revolution'.

I know what you're saying "I buy consoles for the games," well I'll tell you this, I've always believed that the consumer is the most powerful entity in any business and has the power to dictate. By this I mean instead of buying multiple systems, align yourself with one and when developers realize: hey this game isn't selling that well on one system they'll be forced to put it on another to turn a profit. An example of this would be RE4. However this cannot serve as a primary example given that capcom is one of the biggest traitors in this industry, thus stemming my profound hatred for them. I don't think that consumers should allow developers to force them into certain decisions. As a consumer you must take a stand, however difficult it may seem. After all it is your money and you have the right to protect it however you choose.
