CNET still not over it

And by "it", we of course refer to the cataclysmic tugging of the carpet that Nintendo so infamously performed when they quelled the Revolution (the what now?) and released the Wii. After Nintendo's powerful showing at E3, most people seem to have gotten used to saying the new name without breaking...

Just how many flaps does this thing have?

This is getting ridiculous. Just when we thought the mystery was solved and the conspiracy theorists were silenced, someone has to go and find another mystery flap on the Wii. What is it this time? A holographic laser cannon? An automagical DVD dongle? A nickel and dime slot for Virtual Console purc...

Miyamoto now, of course, accepts and end...

Nintendo E3 keynote to be shown at Nintendo World Store

If you live in the New York area and are unable to attend E3 this year (given the hordes of sweaty, shoving geeks involved, it might not be such a great loss), be sure to drop by the Nintendo World Store on 9 May. The store will be broadcasting Nintendo's keynote, an event sure to host new DS games,...

Wii marketing ideas

Making the best of a bad situation, the British Gaming Blog has posted an animation and some images relating to how they think the name "Wii" should be marketed to Nintendo fans. I especially like the Mario Kart pitch, with the letters in the logo breaking apart to form two racers battling...

Next-gen Tony Hawk footage leaked

If the folks at Gaming Age are to be believed, this footage was swiped from an early build of a next-generation Tony Hawk game. There's nothing in the video that points towards this being Downhill Jam (confirmed for the Wii last month), but footage this early is unlikely to be tied down to a speci...

TurboGrafx-16 retrospective

Nintendo confirmed last month that the Revolution will feature TurboGrafx-16 titles in their Virtual Console service. In recognition of this announcement, Game Informer Online has put together a lengthy retrospective on NEC's black sheep of the 16-bit console wars. The TurboGrafx-16 had some succes...
