Alot of things have changed since 25 years ago, but we still browsing the web, and still playing games so that is good!

Exactly a quarter of a century ago, Nintendo doubled down on gaming with their American release on the SNES console and on the very same day, August 23, 1991, the Official launch of World Wide Web to the public occurred, so both Video Gamers and Websites, can get a slice of Happy 25th Birthday Cake today!


Today is a double birthday, because both the SNES and WWW was launched, and both changed the world as we now know it, little did Nintendo thought that the SNES would end up being the all-time classic of video gaming, and still be played today, and little did the CERN and W3 Project think their at that time text-only hyperlink protocol of a simple plain web page, would turned into what we have today, now we have multi-core powerful consoles with massive online games that people...

Another Fan-Made Video Game, Another Takedown as usual by Nintendo!

Nintendo doesn't like it when you use their franchise's gameplay, their franchise's name, and their franchise's music in a game of your own, no matter your reasons, being a loyal fan, or doing it to honor an anniversary does not count in eyes of big 'N' lawyers!


Within 24 hours 1.5 million people downloaded 'Pokemon Uranium' officially from the developers website after they finally released their long-time-in-development game based on the Pokemon IP, with even a way to chat with other Pokemon's you captured, but of course Nintendo didn't like the idea, and within those 24 hours like usual, their big team of lawyers came a calling faster then the best Pokemon out there, and in one powerful cast of spell, knocked out the developers from allowing them to serve up any more downloads, so now you are your own in dark side...

Could this recently filed patent reveal what the upcoming Nintendo NX really looks like?

Nintendo games are going to get a lot more fun. The company has applied for a patent for a removable controller that can connect to the side of a portable gaming device. In another patent application, there is also a hint at controlling via hand gestures.


The application connects to earlier rumors about the upcoming Nintendo NX handheld/console hybrid, that is to rumored to feature a large touch screen, with detachable controllers, only thing is this patent shows only one controller, whereas the rumor says there was one on each side, but it also adds in a new puzzle to the piece that the system could have mini-Kinect-like feature to see your hand movements in front of the screen.

Job Postings May Suggest 2 NX Devices

Nintendo NX may not actually be the console-handheld hybrid device most analysts have come to accept. Recent job postings call the popular rumor into question.


A few months ago it was rumored that Nintendo was planning to release two systems, one was codenamed MH (for 'handheld') and the other was codenamed NX (for 'console'), but later on the rumors were forgotten and everyone focused on the final rumor this one hybrid system that combines both handheld and console into one system, but now rushing back to us is new rumors that MH and NX could occur, and is happening at big 'N' HQ, that they are infact working on releasing two new systems, not just one that does it all

Who runs the world? Pokémon.

The tsunami of Pokémon-related fanaticism over the past month for Pokémon Go has seen sales of Nintendo games and hardware soar, tripling purchases of the 3DS.


Sales of Nintendo 3DS handhelds are up over 200%, thanks in part to the hype of Pokemon Go, even tho the new smartphone app does not work on the N3DS, people that have never gotten in the Pokemon craze before are finding out about how large the Pokemon world is, and that there is tons of offline games to enjoy on the 3DS platform, as such sales are turning into lots of sales and its growing!

A fake employee may be to blame!

Nintendo has a bit of a reputation for being overprotective of their copyrights. Gaming personalities "Angry" Joe Vargas and Jim Sterling, among others, have had unpleasant run-ins with them. Adult artists have recently suffered copyright strikes against their fan creation. Fan games have popped up and disappeared overnight.


Seems like big 'N' either has rogue ex-employee going power-craze, or someone is pretending to be this former employee and using his past power to issue perfect looking C&D copyright takedowns to the right groups to get videos and other websites removed.

Plus big 'N' staying with the Terga X1 design used in current devkits, say Taiwan makers!

Nintendo will start trial production of its next-generation console, the NX, in the third quarter of 2016 and start volume production in early fourth quarter, about one quarter ahead of the originally scheduled early 2017, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.


Taiwan factories have been quoted as saying that Nintendo has decided to gear up retail production of their NX system in early 4Q16 in tune still to get enough units ready for a March 2017 release, but also reports that they decided to stop design changes and are going with Tegra X1 that is rumored to be used in current devkits, and are now not going with more powerful version of Tegra line-up.
