Nintendo and the Sports game question

Very interesting explanation over at Cube.IGN for Nintendo’s decision to kill Retro’s in-process “Football 2002” title. This kinda makes you wonder.

Doom III shots

John Carmack, id genius, was giving a new video card a spin this morning in Japan. He had a nifty little piece of software testing it out. I think they call it Doom III. Voodoo Extreme has a few shots. THESE ARE NOT RENDERS! These are Real-Time shots. Still looks early, but very big potential. […]
