(10/25/2002) October brings a short but sweet appearance from RPG Classic's River City Ransom Shrine.
River City Ransom for the NES is just one
of those extremely rare cult classics where you'll like it when you play
it, it will reach your personal favorites list, and everybody who's been
spoiled by the next-gen console craze will look at you funny when you make
your decision. Fortunately, the folks at RPGClassics know all about this
outstanding Technos game, are aren't afraid to give the game the full blowout
(9/18/2002) Each month, we celebrate the best Celebs sites on the Internet. September gives us one last taste of Summer with DOAXCess.
If you've ever owned a Dreamcast, a PSX, a PS2, or an X-Box, the Dead or Alive franchise of fighting games is one fighting game series that's hard to avoid, even if you're not into the game for the eye candy. Now, Team Ninja has taken the tittilation to an entirely new level by creating a game that has all the female characters from the Dead or Alive franchise participate in a volleyball match against each other, in an effort to buy as many bikinis as possible. It may be a weak plot, but this game is destined to leave many XBox gamers happy.
DOAXCess is one of the best sites on the Internet devoted exclusively on promoting this promising little game, which was voted by the perverts at IGN as the best non-playable presentation of E3 *sigh*. Everything you want to know about the game, including advertisements and the plotline, is right there. With Microsoft and Tecmo working together, Dead or Alive XTreme Beach Volleyball promises to be the most successful videogame of the summer.*
Second, Dead or Alive XTreme
Beach Volleyball is coming out in November, which is too late to be in
contention for best game of the summer. But as long as you have the appropriate
footnote, you can get away with saying anything.
(8/21/2002) In August we play along with Avril Lavigne.
Long before she was mainstreamed with her
hit singles "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi", Avril Lavigne was skating in
the streets of New York, gradually building her craft for writing songs
all about being herself. The Official Avril Lavigne site takes you on a
journey through Avril's life, from her childhood in Napanee, Ontario to
her chance encounter with Antonio "LA" Reid, one of the frontmen for Arista
Records. Her site also includes photos and lots of commentary from the
young songwriter herself.
(7/24/2002) In July we cheer on for Kirstenfan.com.
After coming out of a $400 million dollar
blockbuster, where does Kirsten Dunst go next? Word has it that the Mary
Jane starlet now has her eyes set on the latest Julia Roberts movie, "Mona
Lisa Smile". There are also rumors circulating that she could be hitting
the London stage for the West End play, "This is Our Youth". Whereever
her career takes her, kirstenfan.com is there every step of the way, with
pictures and other multimedia goodness to boot.
(6/7/2002) In June we relive the magic of the 2002 MTV Movie Awards.
With musical performances from Kelly Osbourne
and Eminem, the 2002 MTV Movie Awards combined modern music with a "night
at the movies" feel, fueled by hosts Jack Black and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
The highlight of the show was of course, who won categories like "Best
Villain" and "Best Kiss". Full of photos and flipbooks, this is the place
to go if you want to take another look at this gala event.
(9/1/2001) September takes us a whole new Spaceworld with Yamauchi's Dream.
Shigeru Miyamoto's decision to go "old school" with the next installment of The Legend of Zelda created a division between the fans of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time and the fans of the classic Zelda games for the NES and SNES. In Yamauchi's Dream we check out what Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi thinks about the situation while adding a bit of videogame humor. A must-see for Zelda fans!
