Site News: September 16, 2006

What better way to end nearly two months of daily updates than a month without any updates? Of course it was never my intention to halt updates, but since I started college the workload has been tough. I'm talking about eight to ten hours of homework a day plus my job. No exaggerations. So, until I reach the mythical promised land of a month long winter break, I have decided to dedicate myself to updating every Saturday, and occasionally at other random times. This does not mean I want less submissions, but it does mean it may take a little longer for me to get stuff up on the site. Anyway, enough ranting. I have some Nintendo news and three major updates to announce.



Nintendo announced the Wii release details several days ago. The price will be $250 and the US release day is Novemeber 19th. Interesting, Wii will not be released in Japan until Demember 2nd.

The character battle between Bowser and Eggman has come to and end. Read the summery and vote in the next battle.

Nintendo News: April 27, 2006

The Revolution has been officially named Wii.



Introducing... Wii.

As in "we."

While the code-name Revolution expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that seperates videogame players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?

Wii sounds like "we," which emphasizes the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.

Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people playing it. And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of videogames that sets it apart from the crowd.

So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii. And together, Wii will change everything.

I hope you enjoyed this year's April Fools jokes! At the time of this post the fool counter was at 191. The modified fan games page is now located here. The Revolution announcement from the top of the page is below.

Revolution to be released on June 9th



It looks like the rumors have been confirmed after all: we will be getting the Revolution much earlier than expected on June 9th of this year.

From the official Nintendo press release:

On June 9th Nintendo will break with more than 20 years of video game history by abandoning the traditional controller held with two hands and introducing an all-new freehand-style unit held with one hand. The intuitive, pioneering interface allows players to run, jump, spin, slide, shoot, steer, accelerate, bank, dive, kick, throw and score in a way never experienced in the history of gaming.

When picked up and pointed at the screen, the controller gives a lightning-quick element of interaction, sensing motion, depth, positioning and targeting dictated by movement of the controller itself. The controller also allows for a variety of expansions, including a "nunchuk" style analog unit offering the enhanced game-play control hard-core gamers demand.

IGN Reveals Revolution Tech Specs



Nintendo still has made no official announcement. IGN is basing these specs off claims from anonymous developers.

CPU speed: 729MHz
GPU speed: 243MHz
RAM: 24MBs main 1T-SRAM and 64MB external 1T-SRAM (total 88MB).

In comparision that makes it about twice as powerful as a Gamecube on paper, which is less than the Xbox 360, but I suspect that the improvement in graphics quality will be quite good. Revolution doesn't support high definition, so it needs less power and should look just as good in standard definition. Discuss on the forum

Incase you are still deciding if Super Princess Peach is for you, I have written a review.

Nintendo News: March 8, 2006



The game Mario fans have been waiting a decade for is coming May 7th. Today I have some new information about it from Nintendo Power.

"In terms of other sound elements, you know, the last few Mario games have included voice samples and stuff. But this time, we want to get back to the sound style of the original Super Mario Bros. There will be no voices."

No more "Just what I needed"! I can play with the sound on!

Takashi confirms the game is set in the Mushroom Kingdom, and the plot is the same as the original. There will appearences by Mario, Luigi, Toad, Peach, and Bowser, but not Yoshi because he conflicts with the "back to the basics" additude of the game.

On another note, when asked about a 2D platformer on the Revolution, Takashi couldn't comment. I think this is a good indication that there is at least something in developement.

New Super Mario Bros. has been confirmed for a US release date of May 7, 2006! Below is the official Nintendo press release.

[Screen shot]

It's been more than 20 years since Nintendo's highly acclaimed franchise, Super Mario Bros.(R), first hit store shelves. On May 7, eager fans from Mario's classic days must wait no longer to see the brothers return in an all-new platformer with the launch of New Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo DS.

On the heels of Valentine's Day romance is in the air, even in the Mushroom Kingdom. But Princess Peach wasn't able to celebrate with her special someone, seeing that she's been taken prisoner by Bowser and Bowser Jr. Only the Mario Bros. can rescue the princess from her evil captors as they battle familiar enemies like Goombas and Koopas along with new foes and big bosses.

New Super Mario Bros. is loaded with features and characters that could only exist in the Mushroom Kingdom, including all-new power-ups like the Blue Shell, in which Mario can ride, and a massive Mushroom that makes him ultra-huge. The title features stunning 3-D models moving through lavish, cleverly designed 2-D worlds, culminating in a final showdown for the freedom of Princess Peach.

The coolest thing about it is that it knows its location in 3D space. This opens up so many possiblities. It also has an expansion port at the bottom that allows attachments. So far we've only seen one: an analog stick.

Toad's Castle has a new permanent host. Everything should be fixed now.

Site News: March 21, 2005

TC is currently being hosted on a temporary host. Current Issues: The forum is down. Only the home page has PHP (server doesn't like my .htaccess), so the layout is pretty much broken. It's usable, but annoying. Thanks for your patients, the problems should be resolved soon.

Today Toad's Castle is re-born. I made a new banner and layout. I don't know what I was thinking in October with that blue. Toad's Castle now has it's own domain: toadscastle.net. I've decided to dedicate my self to this site again, as I am no longer updating my two-year-old programming site.

I added a new page for random mario things. Other random updates are everywhere. Expect more soon!

Site News: October 17, 2004

Made a new yellow layout to match the banner.

Site News: September 30, 2004

Not much for a month, but here it is. I changed the link to the forum so it now leads directly to the Toad's Castle section. Instead of having a seperate page for Mario news I decided to combind it all on here (notice the new "Site News").

Site News: August 29, 2004

I guess I went against what I said on the forums about not wanting to copy CPC's layout, but since no one even replied... It's still open for discussion of the current layout and modifications to it.

I decided I needed new welcome text too.

Site News: August 15, 2004

One month later... hehe. New forum. I started a new forum for my other site, and decided that instead of making a new one for here, I would just give this site a catagory in it. Makes everything easier.

Site News: July 15, 2004

It's been awhile, but this is the biggest thing yet. I wrote a complete guide to every level in SMB3. Although a few other sections of the guide still need to be written the main part is there.

I changed the layout again. I really liked having the two side bars, but it really didn't look great on lower resolutions. I combined the two bars into one and now it looks good on 800x600.
