Straight from Magic Box.
Nintendo just started a new branch to focus on making just first party games that utilize GBA/GCN connectivity, is ramping up their R&D, and rumor has it that Mario Kart has been completed and features 8-person racing (linking 2 consoles together).
You know, the GameCube is so tiny you could bring it just about anywhere, so LAN gaming doesn't seem that far fetched.
It's just the TV's that become the problem.
Can't say I'm surprised, but admittedly disappointed. I too look forward to somebody jury-rigging the GameCube to work via GameSpy so I can catch the on-line wave with a console.
This seems like a good time for console LAN gaming. With HDTV popularity going up, standard TVs are dirt cheap. Even my fiancee and I have a spare 19" TV in the bedroom (it may be 10+ years old, but it is a TV!) Plus, you could always get a VGA box and hook up another GC to your PC monitor (another dirt cheap item).
Bring on the 8-player Mario Kart!
I have LAN parties at my condo, since I have a home network, three 27+ inch tvs, and a fourth ethernet jack for a wandering nomad gamer with a TV. So far we've been having Halo parties. And with Xblive, more and more games are being made with networked multiplayer in mind. I doubt Gamecube developers will get near the support that Xbox has in this area. But I certainly invite the idea of Mario Kart lan parties.
I invite the idea of ANY racing LAN parties!
