Zoonami interview fake

The supposed Gamespy interview with Martin Hollis of ´Zoonami´ fame is fake. I have recently received the following mail by them.
Andreas,

In reply to your telephone enquiry of 2006-01-11, if you are referring to
the interview from the GameSpy message boards (belowmentioned for your
reference), I can confirm that it is fake.

Best regards,

Anna Zukowska
I won´t paste the interview here, but it regards the rumoured action game ´Guts ´n Glory´ and a lot of general Revolution info. All fake, though, as it turns out.

EDIT I sent Anna another mail, clarifying if a game called ´Guts ´n Glory´ had at all been announced. This is what she wrote:
Hi Andreas,

Thank you for your enquiry but we are not making any announcements at this
time. We will add your contact information to our press database so that
you will receive our future press releases.

Regards,

Anna
So, nothing has been announced yet. If I get an update, I´ll post it as soon as possible.

I believe that Zoonami interview was from around E3 of last year. At least I heard of a same GameSpy/Zoonami one last year to so I am almost certain that this is the same.

How come when I accidentally left-click on a blank space on your blog it gives me the sentence

"This server speaks in pictures"?

I'm confused.

Arsenis said...

i have that problem too i use safary on my mac, but on PC i use firefox, and that problem is gone.

nz guy said...

that happens to me but i never had that thing a while ago where everything was a link.

plus i have no idea what i use or what they are for.

You know what I just realized. Is that no one likes Falafelkid. All over the web people dislike him. He is kind of an asshole.

I am not going to come here no more.

sigh...this blog apparently have got infected also, now you attack everything and searching the fakeness in all the other places or blogs.I like it before when you post something you have find (like the patent of the revolution) or some other stuff,please stop the bashing if they lie so let them lie you just keep your blog without this trash keep the good work here and dont change yourself into a blogger that just attack others,just my two cents, nothing personal

nick said...

I like how EtrafficJams.com is now pissed at Falafelkid, so they have to attack his blog with "no one likes him" comments. I have seen more negative comments in the last few entries then I have seen in a LONG time. This can't be a coincidence.

Falafelkid's blog is about fact or informed speculation. If he can prove that people are lying, then more power to him.

hey falafelkid!
mach weiter so!

I think most people don't actually believe that there is a game in development called Guts N' Glory, but it would be awesome if there was.

I think disproving people has become a good part of the blog, and I actually enjoy it when Falafelkid does it.

Anonymous said...

I give falafelkid all the credit in the world. He's been consistent..although he believed that ON was real. Oh well we all wanted to believe. But finding Seriouslamers identity...genious. Ignore the haters. Youve done a better job discovering the truth of the Revolution than most major game sites cough *IGN* cough. Keep going Falafelkid.

Arsenis said...

do this includes those long e-mails posted on a blog,or thats the interview?

Hi Falafelkid.
Have you got any idea who Osoko Tanaka is?
I mean you revealed SG007

Also hast du irgend eine Ahnung?!

;)

Shoxware Games said...

You guys shouldn't bash around here!
Our Mr. Garber here is doing a great job and it has nothing to do with "Bashing some bloggers" etc.

I mean you get your hopes up for a game called "Guts n' Glory" which is just FAKE! Accept that!

I really enjoy this blog, because this is the place of the truth!

Thanks for your good work, "Namensvetter"!

Now if only he can check up on Mr. Inc and N5_Dev

Shoxware Games said...

I am 100 % sure that N5_Dev is fake... Mr. Inc.? Well, who knows!

nz guy said...

people are just mad coz of falafelkids perfect track record.

and about the sg007 thing, well he is claiming that he is a 17 year old from canada named jean, and is closing his blog monday. But he is trying to get people to interview him so dont think he has redeamed himself.

Morton-jn said...

Awesome news...

Seriousgamer is gone that's right u heard right. Go to his website right now it's no more! which means Falafelkid is right and we can now hail the true seriousgamer get-rid-of-a!

Anonymous said...

shoxware games....I'm pretty sure they're fake too but there still a lot of people who don't feel the same way. Hell theres still some people out there that think Aries is real insider.

As for Osoko, check this out:

Its just a link to MozLaPunk forums where one member exposing Osoko as a fake.

Kann mir jemand sagen ob der deutsche Nintendo DS kompatibel mit US spielen ist ?

HereticPB said...

Via Kevin it would seem Mr. Inc is in a position of Revolution Knowledge.

Osaka is garbage from what Kevin's research says and N5_Dev seems to be true from his research as well.

Despite giving Resident Evil 4 the overall best graphics-technology award you claim FEAR looks better than Resi 4.Rofl - no way around it .You really must be some jealous nerdy pc coevals.Never ever can FEAR get even rudimentary at the consistent perfect balance between the texture-design,art-style,polygon count,paticle-effects animation and framerate Resi 4 achived and what makes it special ! This debate is not worth a straw, really.
See there is just one simple obvious truth that anybody with minimal knowledge and an open mind about graphics would acknowledge :

Resi 4 is the best looking game of this generation !
It beats out everything on PC and XBOX no way around it !

Keep in mind that isolated components like excessive use of normal- or bump-mapping on walls or characters alone do not justify superiority !

What really counts is the whole package and in that sense Resi is head and shoulders above the competition period .

Arsenis said...

Good analysis, and thats Gamecube the underdog....

Good Hopes for the Revo...

Yes i think so...

Here are three clips.

The first one could be a commercial.

The second one could be the boot-screen.

The third one is a fan-made-video.

its been down for awhile he doesnt like us I guess.

hmm why do i not believe that thats the Matt he's trying to portray himself as

Arsenis said...

why does it link you to ign and not ign-revolution?

Blizz419 said...

Becouse its not really him

Zucas said...

Well the interview may be fake but now we all have to wonder what Game Zero really is. Good find Falafelkid.

Falafelkid said...

Hi everyone. If you want to send me mails, please do so here. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Ok either you guys are Falafelkid or what but I dont believe that you all think that he truly unveiled SeriousGamer. Falafelkid is trying to act like he has support or something.

I just dont believe he revealed anything. As a matter of fact I have a suspicion that Falafelkid is SeriousGamer007. He doesnt have an email address and no one knows his name.

I think this was all a stunt!

Has anyone called eTrafficJams.com and asked them for themselves?

It is Toll-Free.

Falafelkid is prolly seriousgamer007

matt said...

No I am not matt from IGN. It is just my favorite site.

By the way that email address doesnt work. Why dont you just spell it out. Furthermore it looks like you just created it.

I may have to call etrafficjams myself because I am beginning to think that Falafelkid is SeriousGamer007.

Which is why I want to email him some stuff to post. :)

Anonymous said...

877-785-9977 I got that off of eTrafficjams.com website. Someone call them and see if Falafelkid is telling the truth.

I think that SeriousGamer007 is Falafelkid.

Anonymous said...

I'd call them but I am a wuss and would screw it up.

Arsenis said...

are we going back to the RSS feed where it said Falafelkid was SeriousGamer007 and he claimed to be a joke...

Blizz419 said...

falafelkid is not sg007, but one thing does confuse me that i have noted before bout a month ago or so thats his email address is a AOL account which as far as i know is only in the U.S., i could be wrong but i dont think AOL is offered in Europe. but no he definatly is not SG007.

Anonymous said...

someone should call eTrafficJams and verify him. I think he is SeriousGamer007. Anyone good at this? Call them now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We shouldnt take his word for it.

Keith said...

By the way my name is bluefalcon

Arsenis said...

i just call them and they will not comment on anything as far as the phonecall by Falafelkid nor SeriousGamer007, nor this blog as a matter of fact they hung up on me like a minute into the conversation, i guess it should be someone who has priveledges as of press or something.

Shoxware Games said...

AOL IS offered in germany!
Falafelkid is NOT SG007.

Case closed!

Anonymous said...

Where did all this Falafelkid=SG007 come from?

Anyways, I agree that Falafelkid is doing a great job so far, and that exposing fakes is a good part of the site.

I wonder though, would it be possible to try to trip up N5_Dev or Mr. Inc. Not to push you or anything, its just that if there is anyone that can prove that they are fake, I believe that you can.

nz guy said...

i heard some surprising news that falafelkid is barny...
my sorce is very relyable.

Anonymous said...

LOL!!!!

You guys actually think a company like etrafficjams or any other company gives a damn about a blog! This is the funniest shit I have ever heard!

You guys are obviously full of yourself! I bet you they didnt even contact Seriousgamer and threaten legal action. I bet that none of them had anything to do with all this.

I think all of you guys are living in a fucking dream world.

Gaming Conspiracies? Gimme a break!

etrafficjams, emagin, gyration, and Nintendo are not playing these games. It is Nintendo Fanboys! Thats it.

You guys are pathetic DWEEBS!

On an unrelated note Nintendo haven't announced the new DS yet so that was probably fake too.

Let it be a good article and move on. We will never know and he cares?

Seriousgamer has been so many people so dont be suprised to see him come back as you grandmother.

I like this blog, it have a good point of view on things related to Revo. So stop flaming and loading shit on that Blog.

Good, now no one back up or show support for Luca S. or anyone (especially as anonymous), because the moment anyone does anything it can be viewed as being in cahoots with Seriousgamer007. :o

Please, enough with the accusations. (Now everyone point at me as being someone I'm not. I'm just a regular reader, but what proof do I have - how can I? - or what proof do you have you are who you say you are? Oh it's all a big facade!)

Welcome to the internet, the primary reason people act like dinks is because they are pretty much anonymous to most people.

By the way, this page alone is about 700 kilobytes alone, please try to prune/crop the unnecesary comments (kind of an oxymoron).

ATTENTION !

I have just got confirmation from a senior source at Nintendo that
Saturo Miyamoto, Shigerus brother aka Mr.Incbus from the award winning legendary INCBUS STUDIOS INC., is indeed hard at work on a top secret project formaly known as DUKE NUKEM FOREVER.

This exeptional project is being developed at a top secret facility publicly known as AREA 51, to ensure unfettered safety under any circumstances.

I presume you comprehend these instances are neccessary as history is in the making and the laborious creative process needs to be protected!

Given that this project will mark a new era, I thoroughly hope you are appreciative, that there will be NO END SOON as far as the durability of the development is concerned, and consequently Mr. Incbus will not be able to disclose his real idenity.

On a more positive note, Mr.Incbus supplemented that he is planning to recruit the very best of his apprentice boys like ISSLAVE,LA MARD,PAULO and NIXLAX to join him , bolster INCBUS STUDIOS INC. and of course to act in concert for this magnificent operation.

Mr. Incbus must be very careful as there are to many truthseeking imposters and spies whoms only mission consists of interrupting the contract with NCL, arbitrate a wrong impression and put a spoke in Inc's wheel but so far Mr.Incbus has daffed all attempts aside and effortlessly overcome every barrier or to make a long story short:

Everything is going according to plan.

Mr.Incbus will continue to defend the PURPOSE of his mission and hypnotically drain all who dare to thwart him of their powers.

At the end of the day, Mr. Incbus knows all too well that only something truely special will afford them the reception they deserve.

Have a nice day.

Falafelkid said...

Hi everyone. I have only ever deleted pure spam from this page, because I don´t want to seem to be censoring anyone´s opinion. But this is spam right here, so I´ll delete those posts. I do this with a smug smile on my face, however, because whoever posted that obviously wanted to spam this site significantly, but stopped short of that, most likely because of the word verification. Whoever you are: try harder, mate!

Falafelkid said...

Also I want to thank everyone who is sticking by this blog. The overall tone has become more aggressive. With the recent bout of spamming and flaming going on here, readers may feel that this blog requires them to choose sides and defend their stance against others. I don´t think it does. And any flames always tend to die down quickly. But this is the achievement of every single reader who refuses to be dragged onto their level and continues to post constructive comments. For that, I would like to thank you.

I am the first one to admit that those parts of my posts that contain opinion are disagreeable. And I invite everyone to disagree with me. Many of you have and, a number of times, I have changed my mind regarding some important issues as a result. But I realise that this exchange of ideas is only made possible by you. So thank you for keeping this blog (and me) constructive.

Blizz419 said...

No problem anytime Falafel, and glad that spam is gone made loading up this page a pain.

Hi Falafelkid,

Hi Falafelkid,

Here is what I believe. I believe that seriousgamer007 has been none other than Revogaming.net the whole time. They recently claimed on their site that they run the blog and that miraculously they got handed the blog from the blogger. I think they used the blog to hype up and get traffic to it. Now that it has traffic they are routing it to their normal site.

Who owns that site? That is SeriousGamer007. No doubt in my mind.

Satoru Iwata spricht über Revolution

18.01.06 - In der heutigen Ausgabe der japanischen Tageszeitung Sankei Shimbun hat sich Nintendo-Präsident Satoru Iwata über die Revolution-Konsole geäußert.

Über den Auslieferungstermin von Revolution sagt Iwata, dass er auf keinen Fall das umsatzstärke Geschäft zum Jahresende verpassen will. Die Konsole sollte deshalb in den USA bis 'Thanksgiving' (Erntedankfest, ca. Ende November 2006) erscheinen, um auch die Unterstützung durch den Handel zu haben; ein genaues Datum nannte er nicht.

Auf der E3 im Mai 2006 will Iwata eine fast fertiggestellte Konsole zeigen.

Resident Evil DS director talks Revolution
January 19th, 2006
Great news everyone, Minoru Nakai (director of Resident Evil DS) has announced that he and Capcom are involved in a project for the Revolution! Disappointing news for some, the project is not a title in the Resident Evil franchise. Hopeful news coming from Mr. Nakai suggests that work on this current unannounced Revolution title may be just what the team needs to start work on a Resident Evil title in the Revolution’s future.

Lots of news types in that one! Great, Disappointing, and hopeful news makes for a great story! You can click the link below to read some “loosely” translated comments from Mr. Nakai by clicking the link below.

Falafelkid,

http://www.shigureden.com/


This is possibly related to the so called "nintendo floor vision" patent from a few weeks back.

Falafelkid said...

Hi Tim. I have found the following comment about ´Shigureden´:

A theme park called "Shigureden"(Autumnal Shower Palace), featuring the Ogura Hundred Poems by famed 100 poets, which is one of the best-known Japanese classic literal works, will open in the Arashiyama-Sagano area this autumn simultaneously with the opening of a pass aimed at enabling tourists to make the round of Ogura poem monuments set up around Mt. Ogura. The theme park and the pass promise to be a new tourist attraction in Kyoto.
If the Japanese-style State Guest House is chosen as the site of a summit meeting of the leaders of the G-8 major countries, it will offer an opportunity for Kyoto to further evolve its tourism.
Source

This would fit the pictures on the site. Perhaps there is some cooperation with Nintendo that allows for special downloads onto the DS. But it seems to be some kind of theme park in Kyoto.

Falafelkid said...

Is everyone aware of this blog? They are so funny. They dug up one of these ancient pictures of a photoshopped Revolution console sitting next to a TV and claim it is a development kit. *lol* Development kits don´t get close to look like the actual console until some time after release. Until then, they look like PCs and will usually be hooked up to computer monitors. Also, their controllers would not be wireless. They would be connected via cable. Anyway, one born every minute...

Falafelkid said...

The guy who runs the blog seems to have indirectly responded to my criticism, claiming to know the industry like the back of his hand. He should double-check his hands in case he find something he´s never seen before.

The Revolution dev kit will not look like the Revolution console shown at E3 2005. Fact.

Have a look at the first Gamecube dev kit. Consider the PS3 dev kit, which is huge. Even after years of being on the market, a console´s dev kit, like the PS2 dev kit, looks significantly different to the actual console. This guy is an obvious fake, just like the photo in question.
