    Haha! First I see a huge picture of Sonic on Nintendo.com's main page, now this. Weird how things turn out huh? [​IMG] F-Zero rocks! I'm glad Sega, a company with game racing experience, is designing it. Almost guaranteed to be a blockbuster.

    AM2 is not doing it, but Amusement Vision is, the people behind Super Monkey Ball.

    OMG!

    This is like... dream teaming or something. I love F-Zero (still by far my favorite SNES game), and nearly every Sega racer.

    To think, 5 minutes ago I was just thinking to myself "Self, you could get Tony Hawk 3 on PC today, play it online and sell your Gamecube"

    Ok, right after that I remembered Mario Sunshine and Zelda, but this just makes me want to go hug it for a while.

    Why you should care. Amusement Vision are the creators of the greatest racing game of all time : DAYTONA USA!

    This sounds very cool to me. I like this Triforce idea.

    While I severely doubt the Arcade/GCN connectability thing will come to America, the thought of a new F-Zero game codeveloped by Sega and Nintendo is an amazing one.

    Thank god everyone is friends right now. Nintendo and Square, Nintendo and Sega, what next?

    If Nintendo and Sega teamed up, watch out Next Generation. Together they will SMOKE Sony and MS

    Sega has teamed up with different companies for different things. MS for online, Sony for their hopes for the future of technology, and Nintendo for game design. So if anything, Sega would be making games with Nintendo instead of MS and Sony, and if they start doing that more often, then MS and Sony will be on the losing end.

    This is a really smart move by Nintendo. Now Nintendo is getting some of Sega's fans PLUS their fans.

    It looks like you'll be able to swap data between the arcade and Gamecube versions using the Cube's memory card. I can't wait to see this one! It's looking to be a good year for the little Cube.

    I doubt the arcade/home memory card switching thing will come to America.

    NFL Blitz tried the same thing with N64, had a little card reader on the side of the cabinet. I'm guessing it wasn't that successful as I never saw one person in all my arcadium do it. [​IMG]
    Personally I'd never be caught dead bringing my memcard out in public like that. What if a girl from class saw me stick it in the reader like a nerd. Unless all the cool kids started doing it, then np. [​IMG]
