No more boring still screens, but actual video of New Super Mario Bros. It’s just enough to make me drool like an idiot without actually giving away new information, but I’ll take it!

Kingdom Hearts 2

March 27, 2006

That is right, this week is the release of Kingdom Hearts 2. The original KH was a game that Dots and I became very immersed in back when SBG was started and I think it helped fuel our passion for this site. I have been waiting for this week for a very long time and fate would have to put the release at one of the busiest times for me. Thanks fate.

According to [url=]Gamestop[/url], Rockstar North posted a press release about positions for people with networking backgrounds. While Rockstar North has done more than just Grand Theft Auto, that series is their pride and joy.

I myself have grown tired of the Grand Theft Auto series, and I was greatly disappointed when San Andreas didn’t turn out to have online multiplayer as rumored. I’ll admit that I only played the game for 10-15 minutes, but I just wasn’t feeling it. Rockstar North finally coming out with an online multiplayer GTA game may be exactly what it takes for me to give the franchise one final spin.

Buh-bye PSOne

March 25, 2006

Everything must come to an end, and it is official. Sony is finally ceasing production on the PSOne. While I’m not a big fan of them as a company, I have to give credit where credit is due. The original Playstation (all versions) has sold a ridiculous number of units, and the fact that it still sold up until almost the very end of the Playstation 2’s lifecycle really says something about the large variety of games that are available under the Playstation name. I am greatly impressed.

I reported this as a rumor close to a week ago, but it has officially been confirmed.

[quote]According to Nintendo, over 1,000 games for Sega’s Genesis console, released in 1989, will be added to the Revolution’s library. Joining them will be an undisclosed number of titles from the Hudson’s TurboGrafx console, also released in 1989 and codeveloped by electronics giant NEC. Though no specific titles were mentioned, Nintendo said it is taking a “best of” approach in selecting which games will come to the Revolution.[/quote]
