Nintendo-Revolution down awhile



Now, this is a brief rumour round-up, as well as my last post before E3. I have just entered into a preliminary agreement to develop a concept for and then shoot a music video (I don´t just work as a game journalist, but also as a freelance producer for various kinds of projects). Part of the clip may be shot in Los Angeles just after E3, which is the reason for having to rush a first concept and storyboard.

Despite my intentions, this clip, alongside my regular work in the newsroom, will keep me so busy over the next few weeks that I will be unable to keep running this blog. Please appreciate that this is a professional project and this blog will simply have to take second place. Thanks for understanding - see you after E3!

Andreas



1.) (NO) END SOON

Mr. Inc´s blog is offline, finally. In a last-ditch effort they have published a silhouette of what looks like two game characters. Here is their last post in full, just for the record:

ATTENTION! NINTENDO VIRAL MARKETING HAS STARTED!!

I have to remove this blog within 24 hours after this post. I’ve still good connections with one member (friend)of the team which said they’ve been warned about the following thing!

ALL PAY ATTENTION TO ALL THE “APRIL FOOLES” THAT ARE COMING. THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A LOT REGARING REVOLUTION HARDWARE/GAMES, BUT ONE OF THOSE APRIL FOOLS IS ACTUALLY REAL AND IS BEING RELEASED BY NINTENDO UNDER AN ANNONYMOUSE NICKNAME AT IGN/N-SIDER NINTENDO FORUMS.

I’VE NOT BEEN TOLD WHAT EXACTLY THIS “APRIL FOOL” IS, BUT IT’S SUPPOSED TO FIT WITH MY PREVIOUS POST.

BE ALERT, NINTENDO’S VIRAL MARKETING HAS STARTED WHICH WILL BUILT UP THE HYPE LEADING ALL TO E3 2006 !!

Whether you hate me or No End Soon, the Nintendo fans will love this month.

Goodbye forever!

PS, please confirm to yourself at E3 this blog was actually REAL ->
REMEMBER AND COMPARE TO PICTURES AFTER E3 2006 !!
Look what uncle bad guy has in his hands!

PROBLEMS, SORRY . . . . . . .

Almost a brave decision to post a pic like that. With it, they will remove all doubt about them being impostors come May.



2.) Dubious interview about Zelda: Twilight Princess Rev controller features

Nintendo fan site The Hylia has apparently interviewed Eiji Aonuma, Zelda: Twilight Princess producer.

The game will be released closer to the Revolution launch, making it essentially a launch title. (...) You can control the sword and shield with the unique setup of the Revolution controller, allowing the player to experience combat in Zelda like never before. When you play the game on GameCube, the fighting mechanics are based in a third-person perspective. However, on the Revolution, the battles shift into a first person mode, which allows the player to really feel like they are dueling a foe rather than playing a game. You should see some of the boss battles in this mode.

Of course, you can use the controller to aim your bow, your hookshot or your boomerang, as well as some other items. The amount of force you use while handling the controller will also determine how far or fast your items go. There are also some puzzles specially developed on the Revolution version that will require the input from the Revolution’s controller. These puzzles will be solved a different way on the GameCube. (...) We’re still considering an online Zelda, either for DS or Revolution, but I can’t speak anymore about it at this time.

However, The Hylia has been offline for more than a day and the editors have not responded to my mails so far. The excerpts are courtesy of Codename Revolution. I mailed the site´s owner and this is the response I got:

I'm not allowed to talk about it. It's no longer up, that's all I can say without any futher consequence.

Sorry.

My guess here is that it was fake. No disrespect, but it´s unlikely a site like that would be able to secure such an interview.



3.) All the rest

This is where I am being overtaken by time constraints, unfortunately. I would have wished to be able to post in detail about Matt´s chore list in that IGN discussion and various other rumours going around, some of which are quite intriguing. But I simply can´t. Sorry. It was a pleasure serving you for so long (I only hope I have) and I am pretty sure that I can be back after E3 to tell you all about Revolution. In the meantime, please use my link list, which I believe to be rather comprehensive. And, if you would be so kind, please use the comments section to keep me up-to-date with any recent developments. Looks like the tables have turned now ;)

Umm the thing is, that first paragraph in the Hyrule interview is that I did NOT see it when I read about the FPS etc. I read through the whole thing when it was just published online and it was not there. Because I was so annoyed that the interview was hyped to be some major leak only to be disappointed by no new info. GAF also came to the same conclusion.

Also the guy who did the interview holds many records on Zelda and apparently is known well and respected. Some of the hype going into it did seem a bit far fetched but wouldnt surprise me if it was real.

ssj2119 said...

Ahh man, you're always away for the big news times - you should let me take over lol, anwyay look, I just posted this over @ IGN.

http://boards.ign.com/revolution_general_board/b8263/114141710/p1/?0

Since the other thread has turned into a Link vs Ganon 2000 vs LoZ:TP disucssion I thought I'd post a new thread.

Ok, so here's the deal, an industry insider by the name of "Randomfile" posts and is a mod on the gametrailer forums - he's basically proven he's an insider, if you're not convinved read through the other thread. He posted three things regarding Revolution, I'm using one as the topic of this thread - head over to the other thread to discuss the others.

Now out of the three quotes, this is what caught my eye the most:


"I've been thinking about whether or not a blog post on this was ill advised for three days now. Should I give away too much information, I'll have the fires of hell rain down on me (Also known as: Nintendo's Legal Dept.) and if I give too little, I'll have you guys after me until E3.

Here goes....


I told those of you who visited the Revolution thread (Before the separate area existed) that I had seen demo Revolution footage. It was exceedingly basic – nearly to the point where you could mistake it for a DS demonstration. That no longer holds true.

Nintendo and.... a large 3rd party... are passing around “final” Revolution footage. An example of what will be used in games. And also what they will share at E3 in five months. According to the note attached to the footage, an extended version will be available by then.

Of course, that's not why you're reading this. What did I see? I really don't know. It was certainly next gen – there's no question in my mind there. However, I lack adequate means by which to describe just how it is next gen. It was pretty, and vivid. It had wondrous lighting and deep textures. I could stare at the horizon in the video and honestly believe it didn't ever end. So, why can't I describe it?

The video itself is odd. I lack a usable example to compare and contrast it too. The video alone, lacking in gameplay entirely, lies at home with the very ideal or the Revolution. It's something entirely new-- devoid of similarity to the way we watch and play as a whole. Damn you Iwata."


I'm surprised no one picked up on this - I've been saying it all along, there is something revolutionary about how the graphics/video are displayed, this one quote gets my hyped more than anything. This is why we havent seen any games, because when we do, thats the Revolution Secret!

Also, from his other quote, which goes with what he's saying

The video was entirely environmental. It featured no character models to speak of. It played out a lot like an Imax film, in that it played through as though you were flying. The video followed a small dirt path, and then darted through a forest before rising and turning around to view the landscape and horizon. Not exactly riveting to read about, but breath taking in a "Wow... this is pretty. I don;t normally see the world from this pov" sense in person.

Can't wait

Good luck with the film clip Fal, is it for a band? A German band? Anyone we know? Have you produced any film clips before that we might have seen?

Sorry for all the questions! See you after E3 when we will hopefully be discussing the new Nintendo ON, lol!

"The tables have turned now ;)"?? Is that a hint or something...? Who has swapped places? (Since you're going to E3, and not us, I assume you're hinting at something else...)

I guess if it's really a hint, you can't tell us anything more... but there shouldn't be a winky face there, right?

About the Hylia interview - TSA was in the IGN forums telling us that Reggie sent him an email about being careful what he posted. That night he posted the stuff anyway and the site suddenly went down. Could be an elaborate April Fools gag, or maybe TSA got in trouble. We'll see at E3.

Good luck, Fal!

Work is work. I hope we see you again next time Nintendo releases a console, if not sooner ;). Otherwise, have a great life!
I've been following since the beginning and this is now the only place I go for Rev news. I find IGN to be biased and everywhere else to be unreliable. You can sum everything important up in a tidy package and even though I don't read everything, you're the only person with Rev news that I trust.

Realmy said...

Anyone curious about the main points of the Hylia interview, here's the best summary I can remember right now:

- When played on the Rev, TP will play in an "enhanced mode" where, among yet to be known other things possible, you can use the controller for sword play, boomerang, bow and arrows, and other items. Also, the Rev controller will be used to solve puzzles while playing on the Rev, these puzzles can be solved a different way while playing on the GC.
- While playing on the Rev, sword combat using the Rev controller will shift into FIRST PERSON, thereby making the combat more immediate for use with the controller (this is, obviously, the point that has led most people to question the integrity of the the interview)
- Said that the Four Swords franchise is over with, seeing that Capcom closed the deal on it. There has been a Zelda Online considered, but because of this a Four Swords title will not be it (also, a Tingle game was scrapped after bad public reactions).
- Phantom Hourglass is the sequel to WW.
- Explained the timeline order for ALL current Zelda titles on the consoles. (If I'm remembering this correctly) OOT, MM, TP, WW, PH, Link to the Past, then the Zelda games on the NES (I forget which of the two was meant to be the prequel). Seems like a strange order, doesn't it?
- Zelda has been pushed back after a relatively new decision was made to position the game as both a GC and Rev title, thus it was pushed back to be positioned as a "semi-launch" title for the Rev. The original delay was NOT because of this decision, but rather because they were having issues with the wolf combat stages in the game. Those issues have been fixed and are impressive.
- TP's storyline will have a much greater focus on Gannon, explaining why he wants the triforce and his motivations (character development). Minda is somehow connected to Zelda herself. Link and Zelda may exhibit qualities of a the rumored "relationship" they share (if you get my drift).

That's about all I remember off the top of my head. I'll see if I can get in contact with TSA and see what he says about all this.

Just by accident? (Zufall?)

We'll see!

KLind said...

Hmmm... Falafelkid is a pretty big gaming journalist, he probably is under a NDA! I mean Miyamoto Interviews, Exclusive stories, he is very important! That could explain why he's going away till e3!

Okay, Here's my crackpot theory. I know Brian won't like this guess but, isn't Fal in Europe...and... so was No End Soon. I really hate to bring that one up again, I haven't believed for the longest time. It all lines up though.

1) Since when does Fal sign his posts "Andreas"?

2) He's been leaving us hints that have NDA acronyms all over the banner, the post head, the 1st paragraph, and the rest of the post.

3) Why would he post about No End soon if he was so vocal that it was fake! This might have been a sarcastic comment but..."With it, they will remove all doubt about them being impostors come May." That sounds like he believes.

4) Why is the No (NES) in parenthesis?

Regardless, I am in full conspiracy theory mode for the next few months.

Johnny B said...

Call me crazy, but I think this NDA 'theory' has some merit to it. As far as I can recall, falafelkid never before highlighted the first letter of each paragraph. Even then, its odd that the 'A' of Andreas would be highlighted. Couple that with the fact the the Linda Bull header appeared the day of this last post...it seems like more than a coincidence. By the way, does anybody know who Linda Bull is? I'm not too versed in modern art/artists?

Maybe Falafelkid really is under some NDA so he won't be able to post again until after E3? I know that sounds crazy, but given these coincidences, I don't think its an illogical conclusion.

nintendofanboy said...

I did a quick search for any artist named Linda Bull, and I couldn't find any artist by that name. It's strange Fal would use this name since the previous pictures were copies of the style of different famous artists, and I think Fal even signed those artist names on the picture. I definitely think that there is something going on here with all the NDA references and the last sentence of his last post, "Looks like the tables have turned now ;)".

Anonymous said...

Did you notice that Fal's last entry was posted on the 31st of March?
This would co-incide with an NDA which starts on the 1st of April.
It would also explain why Mr Inc's blog was withdrawn before this date too...

Brian said...

Klind - you're right, I don't like it, but I know for several reasons that it's not really possible ^_^


2. Rebus over on Mr. Inc's blog sounds very like Remi Ebus, a... well, I don't know how to describe him. He worked on the C64 version of Lemmings with a development studio which name I cannot recall. It is said that Remi was useless with all things technical and was there basically as a manager, perhaps. Commodore Force, a UK magazine, once listed all the team members, as such -

"Thomas Mittelmeyer - Programmer
Leon Van Rooy - Graphics
Jeroen Tel - Music
Remi - Remi!"

Notice all the names? That's right, these people weren't German. They were Dutch. Remi Ebus is Dutch and I know he's been working as a member of the press for years, and obviously he has been involved in game development. Over on Mr. Inc's blog, there was a comment somewhere about Mr. Rebus not being technically minded. Hm.


3. Dear God, the grammar, punctuation and spelling on Mr. Inc's blog was atrocious. And not just that, but his writing style was completely at odds with Falafel's.

4. Falafelkid is a journalist - he has contacts but he is not involved in game development. Mr. Inc claimed to be part of a European development team working on the Revolution.


5. I talk every now and then with Falafel. He is NOT Mr. Inc, and if he turned out to be, I'd have to travel to Germany to give him a good kicking, because we have discussed Mr. Inc several times and all we ever said was, "People will believe any idiot over a blog. The typical human intellect is crashing and burning."


6. I'm a 4th Kyu Kendoka... I have several swords at home and I know how to use them. If Falafel admitted that he was Mr. Inc, I would be forced to travel to Germany and lop his head off ^_~


I think he is as saddened as I am that there are still fools like IALS out there or Azrev who write meaningless nonsense like, "Are you ready?" instead of the factual announcements Falafel makes here on his blog. E3 will make fools of all these people, but the bigger fools will be those who believed them.

So I say now with great foresight - stop feeding the idiots. They'll all either admit it and laugh at those who beleived them come E3, or they'll say they knew what was happpening anyway but couldn't say anything because of an NDA.

Yeah, right. Like any developer under an NDA from Nintendo is going to post secrets about the Revolution on a freely available to the public blog site.

Grandmaster B said...

I was like "Oh you guys think too much and have too much time on your hands" but upon looking at each paragraph you are right. Especially the first 3 which have the first letter in different colour. The signature is also in bold.

Either way makes no difference and pointless thinking about it further.

As to Brian, I couldnt agree any more. Fal is not Mr. Inc and I have been sick and tired of all these idiots trying to fool people. These fakers either have an ego problem, psychological problem, trying to make fools out of people or most likely all 3. Grow up.

BTW if you break Nintendo's NDA's refer to point 6. in Brian's post.

KLind said...

Brian, I never really said he was Mr. Inc. I just said they were both from Europe (Well whoever Mr. Inc could have been anywhere). I agree with you on most of your points and I just posted my initial reaction. You are probably excited about E3, and you also probably have some odd theories as well. I just posted my theory, at that time.

Here's my new theory. I think that some of these blogs are created by real developers, just to get people excited about the console codenamed Revolution. Viral marketing, right? It doesn't have to be factual, just poking the flames. I think some early ones might have been by real developers(still not saying they were true!) but then they knew if they said they were fake that would be an easy escape. Then everyone else wanted to emulate them, so thats where we get the new blogs. This Idea seems more logical to me.

Also I think that some of the interface mockups floating around could at least be prototypes. I mean look at what the xbox 360 did. The prototype console designs were showing up everywhere! Knowing the internets reaction to most all pictures that aren't official from good ol' Ninty (FAKE!) why couldn't at least one be real?

look at this forum thread:
http://forums.nintendo.com/nintendo/board/message?board.id=revolution&message.id=426259#M426259

A picture of the controller was leaked, and every one said "FAKE!" or "They could tried harder than that!" or my favorite " This is so old it isnt even funny!XD"

My point is that I think something that has been "leaked" will turn out to be real. And I am not talking about anything dealing with VISORS! But in the event that that turns out true (please no) I knew it all along.

And Brian, sorry about all the crap I gave you over at NES, you are very smart, and I am very gullible. Sorry.

Falafelkid has never been one to play games. But thats exactly why these NDA clues are so strange. If any of us found those same clues on Osoko Tanaka's blog, we probably wouldn't give it a second thought.

Its just speculation, but I believe that Nintendo revealed the final secret to developers at GDC. Perhaps some journalists were even let in on the secret too. I don't exactly know how a company would put a journalist under NDA, I don't even know if its possible. But I do know that people inside the industry know a lot more than the public does. Yes, its far-fetched, but I think its possible that Falafelkid is under NDA. Its not a likely scenario, but I find it possible.

Either way, its somewhat of a moot point. In about 30 days, most of Nintendo's NDAs will have expired anyway.

Anonymous said...

Journalists are put under NDA's all the time. It's easily 'possible.' All you do is say, we will tell you this info only if you don't tell anyone else. Thats basically it.

For refference, see Matt Assimassina. That guy knows about EVERYTHING before it happens (Nintendo-related).

We will be able to play board games with a kind of flat screen (no sell with the system).

You will put this screen on the table and play with the Revmote.

It's not the first time a think about it. But i really like trowing real dice and have true card in my hand.

Imagine playing scrabble online but on your table. :)
My mom will like it!

I just speculate!

Fal?

What the hell's with you at the moment?

Phillip said...

Why are you throwing conspiracys now Fal?
Do you now know more then we do?

Anonymous said...

i like your idea zaro. it would definately revolutionize normal board games as we know them. okay, revolutionize in the sense that we can now play them without being in the room together. you know playing a video game version of something like monopoly doesn't do it justice.

on another note, i was just thinking about the revmote and the tip of it, you know, the IR cover thingy. I am questioning the need for IR especially if they used the revmote in a demo as a plane flying through the air around island delfino(i think that was the updated version of the demo shown). i question it because if any of us were to create a flying game with the revmote, we wouldn't want to limit the direction the plane would travel. therefore, if when holding the revmote and you wanted to turn around, you would turn the revmote and have it face toward you. how would IR work in this instance? (my assumption here is that this was how the demo worked) if the IR tip of the revmote was facing toward you and away from the tv/sensory black wand thing, it wouldn't pick up the signal.

if thats the case, maybe the IR tip of the revmote is something they just threw in there to cover up something else that is underneath or taken the place of by the IR tip.

that could possibly be the other secret of the revmote.

now what would they put in that spot?

whys no one making more of a fuss about this? Fal is about the only guy who has been consistantly reliable with revolution info and now he clearly shown hes under NDA (there cant be any argument about that after his less than subtle clues) and better than that hes dropping us clues (Allbeit criptic ones).

Anyone got more idea than me about the meaning of the link?

no idea about the link. somthing to do with the name maybe? russian revolution? agh - i dont know.

Quotes from the last post:

*BE ALERT, NINTENDO’S VIRAL MARKETING HAS STARTED WHICH WILL BUILT UP THE HYPE LEADING ALL TO E3 2006 !!
Has this got anything to do with Fal?

*I would have wished to be able to post in detail about Matt´s chore list in that IGN discussion and various other rumours going around, some of which are quite intriguing. But I simply can´t. Sorry.
Suggesting maybe it has maybe this is relavent?

*Looks like the tables have turned now ;)
I know it means in it most obvious sence (so please stop pointing it out!) but its a little bit of an odd thing to say anyway. Even more old to put it in bold

*The NDA thing seems clear.

All in all ive got no idea. Anyone else?

also, another thing that certifies the "NDA" thing is the name of the last post... "Nintendo-Revolution down awhile"....just take the first letter of each word, and besides, that sentence is wrong.....and falafel's writing is very good (near perfect i would say) so that can't be coincidential :P

and the other link.....maybe a new Advance Wars? or Revolution Wars? :P

FIRST SCREENSHOTS!!!!

Okay
Lets get all the information together.
Fal posts his last post on March 31. He says that he cannot post until after e3 because he is going to be working on a music video, which might take him to LA. This seems kind of phony but moving on. The post contains lots of NDA clues. The heading of the blog changes to include these clues. He posts a reason as Red Steal. A little while later people find out about the Red Steal game from Game Informer. Obviously, Falafelkid new about this game because he posted a reason. And, this is the reason that he was under an NDA, because we were questioning about NDA and Red Steal was pretty much his response as the reason. Now, what does this mean? Why would he have to stop posting for NDAs until E3 if he only knew about this one game. It does not make sense. It also is very odd for him to leave clues. And, maybe for the first time in Revoluton history, the clues a blogger left ended up being warranted. Something actually happened, but yet he still won't post. I am confused.

Falafelkid said...

Since GI took the liberty of publishing the story already (ahead of the arranged embargo, as far as I know), allow me to point out that what you see in those scans are ´tentative screenshots´ if you will. I can´t go into detail, but it´s not certain that we´ll end up with those graphics precisely. Then again, ´Red Steel´ will shine by gameplay merit alone. Trust me.

I don't know, Falafelkid. But those must be screenshots of the revolution or it wouldn't be on the magazine. Don't you think. Besides, the graphics are good but they don't match up to what the 360 and the ps3 can do.

Or maybe you meant that it will look better?

Fed said...

it seems that someone who's working in Ubi confirmed those screens as ingame and not concept art

it seems that that "someone" goes by the "p911" nick....

on another note, it seems that it'll be a pretty interesting game (but like i said before, still waiting for a Revolution Wars, the revmote screams RTS XD)

Yeah, my guess is that its the devkit controller. And what's Revpatentleak3r?

Taylor said...

So do you mean that the screens are from current devkits that are not as powerful as the Rev will be, or that they were rendered on a PC? I, personally, don't think they're THAT impressive (although it's certainly more than I was expecting), so I'm hoping for the former. You probably can't answer this without getting in deep shit, but if you can offer a vague answer, that would be appreciated.

5:14 PM

well, i don't think that's what they wan't to accomplish, thats more like how the game looks in motion. It has been confirmed so I don't understand why everyone is still thinking they are not screenshots. Besides the graphics are acceptable knowing that the rev is less powerful than the competitors. But I call them next gen

Also, Gameinformer has a Hands-on, so if they got a hands-on with Red Steel, my guess is that those screenshots are in-game from what they got to play.

quote from Falafelkid :

those screens are not nesesarily coming from revolution hardware, remember that final kits are to arrive in june, anyhow Ubisoft always retouches their in game screens, I never said that is never gonna look like that, hell it might look a little better but its most likely running on a computer....

but then you say GI already played it, let me remind you that there is no proof that they played off the hardware, now if you find something otherwise proving that they played with the actual hardware i'll shut up and say:

I got pwned

Stabby said...

Proof of what?

nick said...

I bet Falafelkid either:

a) wrote the story or helped w/ the story.

b) Took the photos or helped with the photo shoot

White balancing a photo is relatively easy to do, however - you CANNOT turn a small photo into a hi-res one. It just doesn't happen.

I think Falafelkid played the Revolution and in order to be involved, he had to sign an NDA.

My last prediction is, I bet it is killing him that he can't share his information with anyone. :)

Nick

Stabby said...

Falafelkid, do you still think the 3rd secret will be bigger than the controller? We always thought Nintendo didn't show any games because of that secret and now we got those Red Steel screens which didn't reveal anything at all.

Anonymous said...

Falafelkid and all,

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that is proof he has touched the controller and perhaps played the game. My reasoning, the cord on the left looks like the one that connects the revmote to the nunchuka and there is a picture of a guy playing, along the game above. There is nothing more to my thinking than that.

I do wonder why these two statements in less than 24 hours conflict:

They could be screenshots alright. But they could be running on all sorts of hardware.

vs.

Since GI took the liberty of publishing the story already (ahead of the arranged embargo, as far as I know), allow me to point out that what you see in those scans are ´tentative screenshots´ if you will.

--------------------

I understand you may be limited in what you could say, but seriously, what is it? "Could be screenshots" as in "I don't know" or "tentative screenshots" as in "I know but I can't tell you". I'm not trying to challenge your credibility, I just want to pin down some solid information.

On another note, I trust your credibility, but you're starting to have those seriousgamer007 tendancies again. :-) For some reason, I don't mind these techniques from you, because I think you are honestly trying to tell us something credible. It's just that I've become acustomed to you coming straight at us with your thoughts and information, and now I have to be Sherlock Holmes...ha, ha. Anyways, keep the hints coming, and tell us if we are getting hot or cold.

If you have enough time to photoshop, I can't see why you can't make another thread about how you are doing, not just Nintendo related, but also your filming project.

Good Luck with your endeavors,

he was probably just saying that he doesn't know if those shots were running on the devkits or just computers, and he doesn't know if the devkits have the same graphical power as a final rev.

however, it is weird that he's been talking in code like this now. Obviously he's under NDA, and I'm sure he'll elaborate once it expires (I'm guessing post-E3).

i don't get why you are angry, i thought we were talking not arguying more like having a conversation, you ask me to get proof and i showed you the proof. Really, I didn't mean to get you angry.

Just because falafelkid said that those screenshots were tentative screens, doesn't mean he is always right. In one of his comments he said, "They could be screenshots alright. But they could be running on all sorts of hardware." Meaning that he doesn't have a clear answer himself. Maybe what Falafelkid also meant that the game might look better since it's not the final version.

Also how could my last two post not be proof when the cover clearly says that they had a hands on and the other screenshot does say that they played the game. I didn't show my opinion, i show my opinion and evidence with it.

But whatever we'll leave it here.(I PWNED YOU THAT IS WHAT I REALLY WANTED!! BUAHAHAHAHAHA!)

I regret having contributed to this debate. It´s irrelevant since RS is a great game regardless of what kind of graphics it will offer in the end. I am also sure that the game will look just like the screenshots. All I wanted to point out is that the game may not have been running on Revolution hardware. And I do have a clear answer. I just can´t say too much.

Sorry, both of you are greatly mistaken. Journalists are never given pre-debug kits (if there are such things, which I highly doubt). Journalists are allowed to visit studios. What is shown in this image are simple debug cubes. You can tell by the dark green colour. Neither the Gamecube dev kit, nor the Rev dev kit look anything like those.

Grandmaster B said...

Yeh as you said the gameplay sounds good. One reason I dont play FPS is because they get a bit repetitive and I am not very good at them due to controls. Lets hope it does the same for many other people along with people who are bored of FPS.

The graphics in the photos do look very good though.

Either way I'm more interested in what else is coming in the way of platformers (Mario mainly), action and new types of games that will get me interested.

Graphics seem to be a bonus at the moment if we see games that look like that.

They have been making fun of falafelkid at IGN.com We tried defending him, but evrytime someone post that is real...they lock the thread! They don't even give anyone a chance to prove they are real. After those 2 articles from them and now this...I'm starting to hate IGN.

I believe you're missing the point. My question was, where has that image been used previously (in which of falafelkid's articles)? The other images you've linked (spammed) to have all been used in one way or another on this blog... has the one entitled "proof.jpg" been used as well?

glad you got it back... weird i was just on the other one

Congratulations Fal, great to see you back. I hope whatever it was you got it sorted.

rhopa said...

welcome back \0/

E3 is not so close but it's a good news to see this blog online. I hope that all "bad language things" I read before is finished.

it's time to turn the page & look at this georgious comin' E3 :)

nintendo has at least 7 in-house revolution games they want to show at E3. quite frankly, there are too many games to be shown in a one hour presentation. thus, the NDA ending on 4/20, a few weeks before E3, comes as no surprise. people have predicted this for months, even though we didn't know the exact date.

red steel, call of duty 2, and some others will have trailers/screens put up on IGN and other big sites. big third party games like final fantasy:CC will be saved for E3.

journalists have recently been preparing for the big no-NDA day. they have been invited to try out multiple games, so they can begin their write-ups and have them posted right on the day. i dont know falafelkid, but obviously he also got to play some games.

4/20 will be a great day, i can't wait to see your guy's reaction :-)

Fed said...

it seems you solved the problem ^^

it's good to see you are back

banKai said...

any statement as to what really happened with your blog Andreas?

Anonymous said...

nice to have you back Fal. Glad you got it sorted, wtf was wring in the end though?

Nice !! it's back

Anonymous said...

yeah so what was up with the blog then?

Falafelkid said...

Hi everyone. I have no clue what happened here. Yesterday, I called Google´s media hotline and left them a (rather angry) message. I need to check my Avantgarbe account to see if they have contacted me. I will investigate this, obviously. Otherwise I cannot rest assured that my content is safe with Blogger and Google.

Lucky you got it back at least.

It would have been horrible if it was lost.

blogger is google owned? i didnt know that... weird. anybody read this blurb about the upcoming NIBRIS title for Revolution called Sadness?

“...In my head there is a voice, different from the others. Whenever it answers it overwhelms the remaining voices, it mixes up thoughts and destroys peace. It tells me that I'm only mixed up in a thought which yearns to prove its own existence. The voice which whispers that I'm not really who I am and the perceived reality is only an abstraction created by my own mind. It is the original voice, which wants to free itself from my head, to free itself from the logic and reason it is being stifled by. The voice of animal endurance at all costs, which forces onto unimaginable things. It is the voice of chaos which is now screaming frightfully in my head for me to take an axe resting against the wall and cut off my father's head.”

sounds fuckin kickass!!!! let's hope it takes a page from Eternal Darkness and totally fucks with your head while you play...

-tactics.

Fal your comment is the lamest of all, rather angry message, hahaha...
you are crazier than shizzle.
this stunt, and the i wont post anymore.. Bullshiz.. Anyhow you got the attention now is the perfect chance to give the excuse...

Hi guys do to the problem I had a purchase my own website its Alwhatevergarbe i 'll have news next week... go check it out...

I'll give you Props on the clever rather theatrical show to advertise your new site...

** Claps to Falafelkid **

You are very inteligent on how to advertise your new site...

Anonymous said...

hey guys, i have a bunch of informations but instead of just keeping quiet, im gonna tell you all i have the informations you want, but then not tell you so i get e-publicity!

Falafelkid said...

If you are suggesting that I deleted my own blog you are a fool. Also, Avantgarbe will be my homepage. It will contain some of my work and is meant for professionals who are looking for a television producer, director or author. I don´t think that I will secure many contracts by advertising the URL here. I just thought that some people might be interested in a professional page that I designed. I even might consider moving my blog over to Avantgarbe, simply because it will be more safe.

Boo hoo. I'm an anonymous poster. Boo hoo. I'm so mad at the owner of this blog for whatever reason I can think up. Boo hoo. My life is so boring I must bitch about things that have nothing to do with me. Boo hoo.

Concerning information I have, I have chosen to prove that there are things I know and pieces of information I have. I will be able to publish that very soon and I hope to be able to contribute to some debates regarding topics like the Red Steel screens.

Tom said...

Hey Falafel, please don't break some NDA (really not!!!).
Dont want you to get in some trouble because of videogames...

Tom

oooooh red steel is looking cooler and cooler the more i read about it... here is a link to a ton of information about the game including GI's "impressions":

http://www.gamesasylum.com/showarticle.php?articleID=4832

and check out this strange excerpt:

MULTIPLAYER:

- Split screen multiplayer with traditional deathmatches.

- Totally original multiplayer modes Ubisoft is not revealing yet. Wait until E3.

hmmmmmmm "totally original" huh? what the hell could that mean? pretty much every type of multiplayer mode possible with current consoles has already been done, right? even if this was a variation of something that's already been done, they wouldn't refer to it as "totally original" i don't think...

i guess rev uses a 3d projector after all ;) hahaha... sigh. e3 sure can't come soon enough.

-tactics.

Thank you for clarifying. That's all I needed to know :)

What is the url to the avantgarbe site?

KLind said...

Hey, I know that people are confident that the 20th NDA's expire, but can Falafelkid comment?

pn18 said...

who said his NDA ends on 20th?

Anonymous said...

and what will happen is that the 20th will come and go, just like everything else. it will all come on E3.

Over on the Official Nintendo Magazine forums, the Associate Editor has made some comments...

"There will of course be other stuff hitting before E3. . . there's simply too much good stuff to hold it all until E3."

"I think it's public knowledge that many third-parties are working on codename Revolution titles. Given magazine lead times it would therefore be logical for various press types to have seen these games already in order to get them in the relevant issue of the magazine. The next four weeks are going to be an exciting time for you guys. . . but more than that, there's plenty that won't make E3. . . stuff that will come to the surface between May and December. E3 is gonna be the bomb but it's only the tip of the iceberg."

"And one last thing I should point out on this topic:
When those screens were taken Nintendo internal teams were the only teams to have FINAL dev kits. I highly doubt that any games you see at E3 will be truly representative apart from first-party Nintendo titles such as Metroid Prime. It'll take a few months for the third-parties to give out truly representative screens."
