The Leipzig Game Convention? Nintendo is so over it. In an announcement to the press earlier today, the company ruled itself out of the forthcoming event, stating that it will be focusing instead on "smaller, local events and national promotional tours" -- a bit like this one, we suppose. Ninty w...

Nintendo pulls out of Leipzig

European Nintendo fans eager to attend the biggest gaming show in all of Europe, take note. Nintendo has decided not to attend this year's show. Considering they had a great show last year, we honestly can't understand why Nintendo would back out. Their new focus will be to participate in "smaller...

Leipzig's Games Convention challenged by Cologne's GamesCOM

In the wake of last year's severely scaled back E3, Leipzig's Games Convention emerged as a strong European alternative for game demos and announcements.

LifeSigns resurfaces at GC

It's easy to forget about LifeSigns, since it seems to keep coming and going, but the medical sim showed a few signs of life in Leipzig, and the good folks at IGN got in a little hands-on time.

Now presenting the second Nintendo Short Cuts entry

While the first entry for Nintendo's Short Cuts contest was well made, it really doesn't have much for this second entry. This second entry is actually humorous and hits us right where we live as it features a man and his love for Nintendo. It's a love we feel every day as we clock in here at Fanboy...

Internal Gamecube memory card mod

The genius behind the internal Wavebird receiver mod is back to ensure that you have even less reason to open that flap, provided you don't mind opening the whole system. This time, the target is the Gamecube memory card, which gets not only soldered into the system, but taped onto the motherboard....

Devour this Gamecube Kirby video, gain its power

We caught this trailer from the unreleased Gamecube Kirby platformer on Gamevideos, and we are agape. Stunned. We think that given the choice to release this or Kirby Air Ride, Nintendo may have chosen poorly. Kirby is clearly using HAL's Super Smash Bros. Melee engine, and to awesome effect, as the...
