Has anyone unlocked the door in the upper right in the single player mode or the 3rd book on the bottom shelf at the right?  If so, what is in them?  Also, does anyone know if there are any complete games in the GCN version like Dr. Wario was on the GBA version?

Mario Chat / Super Mario Bros. 3 (Adv. 4) New e-Reader cards?
« on: March 14, 2004, 02:29:01 PM »
Does anyone have anymore info on the series 3 and 4 cards?

I read somewhere that Mario might get the boss weapons like the Boom-A-Rang.  Does Action Replay or Game Shark have codes for things that aren't in the series 1 or 2 cards?

General Chat / Jonh Kerry and Al Qaeda.
« on: February 13, 2004, 08:18:10 PM »
Below is a recent news article that I found interesting.  I am a moderate conservative, but do not support everything that Pres. Bush has done.  On the other hand, I think that Al Qaeda's threat to the US has been understated if anything.  Read on.

John Kerry Says Al Qaeda Not That Bad

February 11, 2004

by Bob Newman


In an alarming assessment of the dangers America faces from al Qaeda, Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry, upon being asked in a debate on January 29th if President Bush was overstating the terrorist threat, said, “"I think there has been an exaggeration. They are misleading all Americans in a profound way."

Kerry seems to have forgotten the horrific events of 9-11-2001, or perhaps in his staggering wealth he simply doesn’t give a ****. Kerry loved the disgusting insult the cover of his book, The New Soldier, delivered to the thousands of United States Marines and sailors who died on Iwo Jima (the cover has protestors mocking the raising of the flag on Mount Suribachi and holding the U.S. flag upside down). He marched with protestors carrying Viet Cong flags while the Viet Cong killed American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. He supported North Vietnam’s use of American POWs as bargaining chips in peace negotiations. He remains a vocal supporter of the traitorous “Hanoi Jane” Fonda, who encouraged the torture of American POWs. And with other radical leftists, John Kerry threw medals he implied belonged to him at a statue at the Capitol, when in reality they were not his at all (he later admitted he wasn’t sure whose medals those were). He even claimed to have personal knowledge of numerous American servicemen raping, pillaging, plundering and murdering across South Vietnam, which he later admitted to having heard as hearsay from fellow supporters of North Vietnam.

North Vietnamese war strategists have repeatedly stated that the communist insurgency was able to defeat the U.S. military in large part because of the motivation and hope the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong received from U.S. “war” protestors.

Kerry sees nothing wrong with any of this.

Now John Kerry, who according to the North Vietnamese gave them aid and comfort in time of war, says al Qaeda isn’t all that bad and that President Bush is exaggerating the danger we are in.

I wonder if he would feel that way had his family been killed in the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
Al Qaeda has butchered thousands of Americans and would kill every American man, woman and child on earth if they could. They destroyed the World Trade Center, attacked the Pentagon, nearly sank the USS Cole, destroyed our embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, blew up the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, plotted to slaughter Americans around the world, and are desperately seeking nuclear, chemical and biological weapons to use against us.

And John Kerry says President Bush is exaggerating how dangerous al Qaeda is.

There is a long-running fallacy that someone who served in the military would no doubt make a good commander in chief in time of war. In reality, you must look at the entire candidate and get inside his head. You have to judge him by all his past actions, policies, beliefs and philosophies.

Do you want a president who believes al Qaeda isn’t all that bad?

Bob Newman


I don't typically put political comments on this site for the same reasons that many don't discuss religon here, but I hope that our next President, weither that is Bush, Kerry, or someone else, understands Al Qaeda's threats to the US.  An old proverb says that a disaster will happen as soon as the last one is forgotten.  I hope we never forget 9/11 and don't go through any other type of attack(s).

For more info checkout

That site amoung others give much more info than the US's current color code system.  And with that have a safe and enjoyable 3-day (for those who get federal holidays) weekend.

Nintendo Announces Spring Line-up

Feb 04, 2004

Release dates set for four spring hits!

Both old friends and new faces pop up this spring on the Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance software line-up. Mario, Donkey Kong, and Wario are familiar to gamers worldwide and now Nintendo will introduce the United States to exciting battles--Custom Robo style.
Wario and his game developers are at it again! Beginning April 5, the 200+ frantic microgames from the critically acclaimed WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgame$ for Game Boy Advance have been reborn in the raucous multiplayer party game WarioWare, Inc: Mega Party Game$ for Nintendo GameCube. A single-player mode gives hardcore fans tons of things to unlock and the huge variety of party games give casual gamers tons of reasons to keep coming back for more.

The multiplayer madness will continue when the successful Japanese franchise Custom Robo makes its U.S. debut on May 10. Gamers can choose from nearly 200 unique parts and 30 body types to ready their robot for battle. Multiple modes allow players to choose from a single-player mode, 1-on-1 or 2-on-2 fights, Tag-Team Battles, 1-on-2 brawls and 3- or 4- player Battles Royal. Prove yourself in a virtual battlefield and show your opponents who's the top robot commander.

On May 24, the famous longtime rivalry between a plumber and a gorilla heats up in Mario vs. Donkey Kong. This action-packed puzzle game, perfect for the portability of the Game Boy Advance, features new Mario moves and six big worlds with multiple levels. Donkey Kong and Mario fans will enjoy seeing their favorite characters from the Mario universe such as Piranha Plants and Bob-ombs but will be challenged by levels and new puzzles.

Multiple courses, a golf pro and a club house will all fit in the palm of your hand when Mario Golf: Advance Tour tees off on June 28. This sequel to the popular Game Boy Color version includes a new swing-control system and tons of courses, from deserts to forests to unique, Mario-themed courses filled with surprises.

Stay tuned to for updates, screen shots and video of these games!

Video Game Chat / Game programing and developing.
« on: February 01, 2004, 09:35:50 PM »
I am tired of being a wanna be game developer.  "I wanna be a game developer."

Has anyone here ever been to Digipen or Full Sail?  Do you have any past or current game projects?

I have worked in Dark Basic, but am currently using Visual HAM for the Game Boy Advance.  Anyone else?

Video Game Chat / Nintendo's New Connectivision Hardware?
« on: January 19, 2004, 05:59:48 PM »
Nintendo registered and copyrighted something called Connectivision on 14 Jul 2003.

Nintendo has said they will unveil a "new and inovative" piece of hardware at E3 2004.

In recent Gameasutra interview with Satoru Iwata he said the new hardware will "enable fun and movement not seen before." And, “I expect it to become a third pillar, next to GameCube and Game Boy."

The Japanese newspaper, Mainichi Daily News, has reported that Nintendo will launch a new console system by the end of 2004. It will not be a successor to the GameCube or the GameBoy Advance, but a new product to coexist with the successor to the GameCube and GameBoy Advance.  Mainichi also says that it will communicate data wirelessly by radio like the wavebird.

This new connectivision may be the Chinese iQue renamed for international release with added wireless data transfer.

Does anyone here have other sources of info or speculation on this topic?

General Chat / School Mock Rock ideas: The 80's
« on: January 16, 2004, 06:57:11 PM »
For those who don't know I am a high school science teacher.

Last year the teachers (myself included) blew everyone away with our mock rock performance.  So this year we have to do even better.  Many teachers have suggested going with an 80's theme.  Although I am not a fan of some of the music they suggested I think it will be funny to do songs like Devo's Whip It.

Last year we had a yoodler (sic?) inbetween each piece to tie them together.  This year I suggested that we have video game snippets to tie everything together.  It would also be cool to have the music and games in chronological order, but I didn't have anyone argree with my idea.  So, I would my fellow FF members to help me if you can.

Please post and discuss any ideas from 80's music, movies, games, etc. that we could do.  History and timelines could also be useful.  Thanks for your ideas and help.
