NGF Mailbag - Edition #8
August 8th, 2001

Got a question, a rant, or just feel like seeing your letter in print? Forward all questions & letters to

I have a couple questions:

1. How many rumble motors are there in the GCN controller?
2. Whatever hapened to the N64 modem they were coming out with?
3. I keep forgetting, but how far does the WaveBird reach?

Jared – 1. I believe it has two motors, although I’m not certain about that. Regardless, I’m sure Nintendo will make sure it’s as good as other controllers.

2. If you’re referring to the one that came with the 64DD, obviously that unit never made it outside of Japan. There was also a third party working on one sometime ago (Interact perhaps?), but apparently they wised up and decided not to release it.

3. Anywhere from 15 to 30 feet. Nintendo has quoted both numbers..


Hi! How are you?

I send you this file in order to have your advice

See you later. Thanks

Jared - Go away.


Are you guys sure that NFL2K2, NBA2K2, and Word Series Baseball are games coming out for GAMECUBE in the near future. Because that is what says on the GAMECUBE Release List.

Jared - We're not sure if they'll be this year's versions or not, but all of Sega's sports games will eventually make it to the GameCube. The latest rumor is that NFL2K2 and NBA2K2 will be out this year, but that hasn't been officially announced yet.


One game you don't have listed for the Gamecube comings in November is Metroid Prime, and I THINK that Zelda will come out in November. MP is rumored to be coming out on Nov. 5, so is Zelda.

Jared - Metriod Prime is currently on track for a Christmas release next year. The footage shown at E3 this year was largely FMV (and still very early), and the game is said to be progressing slower than they initially thought it would (Raven Blade’s cancellation is proof that they’re having problems with Metroid development). Zelda doesn't have any release date thus far, and the footage shown at E3 (Link battling Ganon) was exactly the same as the footage shown at Spaceworld 2000. Zelda might make it in time for next Christmas, or it could slip to as far as 2003.


I got a new game for you: Dinosaur Planet:Starfox Adventures, yep, that is right, RARE/NINTENDO changed the game completely and now is the next Starfox game, it seems cool, cuz it put the Starfox crew againstgiant dinosaurs with -and I really mean it- VERY BIG WEAPONS.

Jared – It makes me happy to see such enthusiasm about the game, but we’ve known about it for a long time now. You’ll find it on our release list as Starfox Adventures: Dinosaur Planet.


what the heck r u talking about! if mario fails then zelda and metroidwon't be important. zelda is a much bettergame then mario. and so is metroid. yer also fergeting about super smash bros. melee. whichis alot better then mario. thefirst game to hav evreybodiies favoritecharacters fightingina big freeforall. link and samus areboth better than him atthe game!

Roger - First of all, it's just my opinion. You are allowed to have yours, and I would appreciate it if you expressed it in a less rash and angry fashion.

Second, you contradict yourself in your letter. You say "if mario fails then zelda and metroidwon't be important," which is true. That's why I put Mario at #1. Then you say "zelda is a much bettergame then mario. and so is metroid." That may be true, but that hardly has anything to do with their importance. An F-Zero X sequel would likely be a great title, but that hardly makes it important for Gamecube's early success. As for your Smash Brothers comment, yes, it should be a great game. But you'll notice that the title of the article was "The Five Most Important GameCube Titles," not "'s favorite games"


eu quero esse mario kart

Roger - No habla espanol....or whatever language that is.


tba games for gamecube

Jared – Uhhh…yeah. If you’re wondering what "TBA" means on our release list, it simply means "To Be Announced".


I know this game [Crash Bandicoot for GCN] is already on your release list, but I believe it isn't planned for Nov. 5.

Jared – According to Universal, it’s still on track for a November 5th release date. We wouldn’t be surprised to see it slip to December though.
