am a big Squaresoft fan and i have been looking for its great Chrono
trigger. i have looked for it but the cheapest price i could find
was $51 so i was wondering if you can find me a pirated copy of Chrono
trigger for a way cheaper price.
Piracy is bad, very bad. So the answer is no.
name is Mario Eilert and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm a
die-hard NINTENDO fan and I'm very excited about the new console
from big N.
I read the specs of the system and I have a few questions and
maybe you can answer them.
1. Is the disc for de GC specially/only developed for the
2. How large is de capacity of the disc? 1.5 GB?
3. Is there an option for DVD-playback?
4. Last month, the new console was released for the press. Is
the system totally completed and ready for sale or are they
still working on the system for enhancements/perfection? Can
they still make modifications on the system before release date?
1) Yes, but Nintendo has talked about using it in future systems
(such as the handheld after the GBA).
3) Panasonic (Matsushita) will offer a version of the Gamecube
that will play DVD movies, but no release date has been
announced for that yet.
4) The hardware is complete, but the games need to be completed
for a successful launch.
I have one big

Who cares? Most anime-based games end up crap
anyway. We don't know when a Nintendo system will see a
Is Game cube is going to be better than
x box or x box going to be better?
In terms of hardware, the Xbox will be the better system.
In terms of game quality though, no one can match a Nintendo
game. So it really depends on how much third-party support
each system receives.
Is the rumor true about a new game system called
the dolphin? If so, when can I expect to see it on
retail shelves? (I live in Atlanta if that matters at all.)
Jared: The final name for Nintendo's next system
is Gamecube. It should be on shelves next fall.
I am looking for the tetris II game for
super ninetendo for a gift. can you help????
When in doubt, try Funcoland. If you can't find it there,
then Ebay is probably your best option.
Do you want to know the secret about
The handle is the secret. Video game consoles are toys,
and Nintendo wants the consumer to believe it's a creative toy (or not a toy), so they
put a handle on it.
The part of the message is to the parents: "Hey, you can buy
this to your kids. They can be creative with GAMECUBE."
Ask yourself these questions:
Is Nintendo 64 a toy?
Is Game Boy a toy?
Is GAMECUBE a toy?
The name CUBE derives from Rubik's Cube which is a creative toy.
It has sold millions of pieces.
GAME and CUBE = PLAY and BE CREATIVE .
I've already read funny stories about what the writer would do with GAMECUBE. Just because of the handle and the shape. Boys and
girls, you're already being creative!
Nintendo is smart.
Well...that is certainly an interesting theory. You're
certainly right though that Nintendo does want to position itself as
more of a toy and focus more on the younger than Sony and
Microsoft do (by focusing purely on games).
I loved your
editorial, it was very refreshing to see that someone out
there has there own opinion. And not one they read in a magazine.
Most people that say the Nintendo64 is for kids probably read it
in a magazine and are to simple minded to make an opinion of there
own. I thank you for defending a great company that has the originality
and the skill to keep us wanting to play more of

Sure, no problem. Just send us $19.99 USD, and we'll send

The Gamer Without A Clue lives!!! That's
right folks, though his demise seemed certain in our last
episode, the Gamer was able to break free of his chains by
smashing them with his incredible durable, slopig forehead
seconds before the 'Forced Intelligence Increasomatic' ray was
able to reach full power and unleash its fury upon our hero. Once
again. Bilingual Literate Monkey was unable to destroy the
city of Cas Yulgaimr. Tune
in next week as Gamer Without A Clue attempts to purchase a
new DVD player from the Evil Conglomerate Sony that doesn't
have a remote, but can play PSX games. Will
our hero prevail? Will
our hero find The Matrix at the bargain shelf? Will
our hero finally convince his girlfriend that dressing up like
Lara Croft is a good thing? Tune
in next week for the exciting conclusion!
to live in Cas Yulgaimr
