    video games

    I'm 22, and I'm a gaming fan. Right now, I'm playing Dragon Quest VIII on PS2, Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart DS and NHL 06 for Xbox. Got those for Christmas ;) . I also play Final Fantasy XI online... but it's been a while since I've actually been on.

    I run a couple of video game Web sites, so I try to always stay in the loop with the gaming industry. Sadly, I spend more time on the sites and working than I get to spend playing the games.

      I LOVE video games!! I don't play much anymore because i'm such a junkie.. once I get started I never want to stop. So online gaming is DEFINITELY out for me!!!
      I really like the spy/espionage games like Syphon Filter and Metal Gear. But once I start one of those games, my life is pretty much over for the next 2-3 days until I finish it.
      I love Nitrous Oxide too. I know these are kinda older games, but I haven't let myself buy anything new for a long time. I have a bunch of games I hope to trade in--football and racing games I never play-- so I'm hoping to see what new things they've got. I may want to hold off until spring break though so I don't forget about my homework. ;)

              Nintendo's next-generation system has been renamed from it's code name "Revolution" to "Nintendo Wii".

              That's the big gaming news today.

                  The Sega Dreamcast was a fantastic system. If only Sega did better on the hardware side from a business perspective, it might not have been discontinued so soon.

                    Nintendo's next-generation system
                    When is it coming out? What else can you tell us about it? Is there going to be more Mario games? My son just bought the latest Mario Party 7 but is looking forward to the next system. Steph

                      It's supposedly going to be released in time for the holidays this year -- which means, most likely, in November.

                      E3 (Electronics Entertainment Expo -- the biggest video game trade show of the year) is going on from May 10-12. Nintendo's going to officially unveil the Wii there.

                      Nintendo is going for innovation with the Wii. They've said many times that they're not really competing with the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360. They're looking to create new types of gameplay and bridge the gap between gamers and non-gamers.

                      Oh, and the controller isn't your typical gamepad:

                      None have been announced. That will change. There's no way Nintendo will abandon this franchise. We'll probably see at least one game featuring Mario announced at E3.

                        I hope so, Mario is the only reason we have a gamecube! Any word on the price of the new system? I guess it will be around the Xbox 360 range and let us know what happens at the tradeshow. Steph

                            LOL!! I remember PONG!!!! we were just talking about it at work the other day. Kids nowadays would be bored silly with how slow our video games used to be. My brother and I saved up and bought an Atari... I can NOT believe how much games have changed when I really stop to think about it.. pretty freaky! So, I try not to think about it! ;)

                              Nintendo has said on several occasions that the Wii will be the lowest-priced system of the lot. Analysts and Nintendo sources say the system will be priced below the Xbox 360's core offering, which means less than $400 Canadian. (Keep in mind, Nintendo is going for conceptual innovation - a "do more with less" policy. The Wii is more powerful than the Gamecube and current systems, but considerably less powerful than the Xbox 360 or the PS3.)

                              Oh, and by the way -- there's been confirmation that a Mario game is in development for the Wii. No word yet on details though.

                              I was born in 1983, but I have great respect for this game.

                              That's quite alright. I play my Game Boy and I have no idea what I'm doing.
