Here you will find links to news items that I find interesting. This page will not even attempt to cover everything happening in the various sections, but should provide a nice look into each.

DailyRadarhas a small news bit announcing a new Star Wars RPG from Bioware. Here is their full story:

LucasArts and BioWare have jointly announced a new Star Wars RPG, destined for PC and next gen platforms. 

The new Star Wars game will be set in a time period before the movies and will feature an entirely original storyline from the films. BioWare's experience in the RPG sphere with Baldur's Gate makes it the ideal partner to deliver LucasArts' most precious property to the genre. 

"This collaboration with BioWare further represents LucasArts' long-term strategy to build relationships with the world's premier game developers," said Simon Jeffery, president of LucasArts. "BioWare has consistently delivered compelling games with rich and deeply engaging stories. Together, we aim to create a milestone role playing game set within a unique and largely unexplored area of the Star Wars universe." 

"We are honored to be working with the extremely talented folks at LucasArts, developing a role playing game based upon one of the most high-profile licenses in the world," added Dr. Ray Muzyka, joint CEO of BioWare. 

The game is expected to be released in 2002.

DailyRadar has posted a news bit regarding the official name for Nintendo's Project Dolphin. Here is a snippet:

Nintendo holds onto its secrets as tightly as a child holds on to his stuffed Pikachu in the middle of a crowded mall. Apparently, however, the huge company has a few links -- in Sweden. As we reported earlier today, the official Nintendo website in Sweden posted a story that quite clearly states that Nintendo's new console, codenamed Dolphin, will be called Starcube. Additionally, the site says that the online network that will connect the Starcube to the Internet will be called Star Road.
