Gamecube Twilight Princess Ganked [updated]

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

[UPDATE: As soon as I put something up, it gets stricken out. NOA has confirmed that the GCN version of Twilight will be sold in retail outlets on December 13.]
GameCube Zelda is not having a good day.
First it was Japan that announced that Twilight Princess would not be sold in stores; you’d only be […]

[UPDATE 3: Ganondorf loses round 1, an upset by Vincent Valentine. So we’re down to Zel; her second round contest is against Terra […]

Twilight Princess Box Art Confirmed

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

After many weeks of sites guessing what the boxart will be, and after multiple Official Box Arts announced through IGN and alike, we’ve finally been given our official box art for the United States. It’s really not that much different from what we had expected before to be honest. We’ve got both the Wii and […]

A Different Kind of Evil

Monday, October 16th, 2006

Since we happen to be on the subject of famous villains in Zeldadom, I figured I would tell you about this press release I was alerted to today.
You might remember Fierce Deity figurine that the company First 4 Figures came out with a few months back. Well, we’ll just say that Oni Link now […]

That’s Twilight with a Capital T

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

(And that rhymes with P, and that stands for Pool! Kudos to anyone who gets the joke.)
It’s been speculated. It’s been predicted. It’s been talked about in super secret Nintendo press releases. And now it’s confirmed (kinda sorta)! Twilight Princess has been rated T by the ESRB. According to […]

Nintendo Going into Launch Strong

Friday, October 6th, 2006

I found a pair of news clips that I thought were necessary to shove your way.
First off, we said before that Nintendo was on target to have two million consoles ready for the worldwide launch this November. Turns out they’re doing one better. According to Joystiq, Nintendo has already passed their two-million console […]

One-Stop Shop for Wii Updates [updated 25]

Thursday, September 14th, 2006

[UPDATE 25: Final update for this article. It is no longer stickied.]
After a fiasco earlier today involving people reporting on a “live feed” that was several months old, it looks as if things are settling down for the big push. I’d call this a liveblog, but I don’t know how “live” it’ll […]

Wii Details Tonight or Tomorrow? [updated]

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

[UPDATE 10:23pm EDT: The times I had for the Japan conference were wrong; those have been updated. At any rate, the Japan conference started one hour ago. However, the keynote is not until 1am EDT (2pm Japan Time) and will go until 3am EDT (4pm Japan Time). Supposedly there will be […]

Wii to Appear in Full Force This Holiday Season

Friday, September 8th, 2006

We’ve just heard the horrible news for Sony that they’ve been having in getting PS3s manufactured for launch. We’ve laughed, we’ve mocked, and we’ve hurled well-deserved insults. But… what about Nintendo? What of their plans? Will Wii be released before the New Year?
Answer: Nintendo is right where we (and Wii, […]

The One-Two Knockout Punch for Sony?

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

Sony has been having some horribly bad luck of late; not that I mind since I feel that their arrogance and their significant non-contribution to the gaming market would make them deserve last place in a heartbeat. (They won PS1 because of sheer quantity and PS2 because of the DVD player and backwards compatibility.) […]
