THANK YOU!
26. JANUARY 2003 - 22:05 CET
I would like to thank the moron who decided to leech all 312 megabytes of NES WORLD with Go!Zilla yesterday between 11:00 PST and 15:30 PST. A big round thank you for sucking the entire 256kb limit for 4 hours. I'm gonna look into, along with Jeremy who runs and owns the parodius network, how we can avoid this in the future, if no solution can be found then NES WORLD is dead... SO FUCKING DEAD, cause I can't pay a US$2000-3000 bill the ISP might throw at Parodius, I've got bills way over my head these months and sofar Jeremy has been kind enough not to charge me but instead pay the whole parodius bill himself.

Oh yeah, to whoever did it... your IP was logged.

EIGHTBIT TSHIRT
22. JANUARY 2003 - 21:35 CET
I deeply apologize for my recent attack of lazyness, hopefully I'll get better soon. Anyway I noticed a pretty cool, if you ask me, t-shirt on liksang.com today, a black t-shirt which has eightbit written on it and a HUGE d-pad printed, very cool if you ask me, now if you'll excuse me.. I have to place an order.. ( check ).

Oh I almost forgot about this one! ( check ).

ANOTHER PROTOTYPE SAVED
20. JANUARY 2003 - 23:59 CET
Probably the most discussed game over the years is California Rasins. Today the world got the news that the game isn't gone for good, a prototype has been found in Florida. ( view ).

I'm not sure what else there is to say really, I'm quite happy that I atleast now know the game exist, though I wish I was the owner of the cartridge (hehe). One thing I hope for the owner is that he makes a rom backup before something unfortunate happens, cause when it does happen, there's no way back. So dude, if you're reading this... get it backed up.

I hope to have a nice update of the site ready in a few days (or tomorrow), but I honestly have been a bit lazy the past few days and it's not quite over yet.

ESCAPE FROM ATLANTIS UPDATE
17. JANUARY 2003 - 22:43 CET
I've been talking to a former Color Dreams employee, a real one, more precise Jon Valesh. He didn't remember much about Escape from Atlantis because the game actually wasn't made by Color Dreams, but instead someone was hired to do the job, someone who, as far as Valesh remembers, weren't even in California.

The man in charge of the project was Al Bunch, and therefore the game was to be a Bunch Games release, though it was developed for Color Dreams and then to be switched to Bunch Games after the development was finished. It was made early in the Bunch Games history, which makes it somewhere in the middle of the Color Dreams timeline.

But why Escape from Atlantis wasn't released is still unknown, but truth is, it would've made an excellent Bunch Game! :)

ESCAPE FROM ATLANTIS ROM RELEASED
16. JANUARY 2003 - 23:45 CET
After much thought the game is now available to the public, enjoy eventhough you'll most definately get very fustrated while playing, you've been warned, heh. ( read ).

TRM HAD MORE CRAP UP HIS SLEEVE
16. JANUARY 2003 - 00:55 CET

SYSTEM BOXART
14. JANUARY 2003 - 20:55 CET
Various NES systems with packins have been released over the years, but sofar no one has bothered to cover the System boxart, that is until now (heh). ( check ).

SOME PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHEN TO QUIT
14. JANUARY 2003 - 20:55 CET
It happened again, someone decided to edit one of my pictures with some sort of attack at me, or whatever the low-life no-brain had in mind. But the person obviously doesn't know how emailing works and how the IP address of the sender is stored in the RAW mail header, even when a free online mail supplier is used. I had a suspect in mind and decided to take a closer look at a header from a mail he sent me earlier and the mail from someone using a free mail service and most likely not using his own name ....

17MEGS OF POSTERS ADDED
12. JANUARY 2003 - 22:33 CET
I finally gave the "posters and phamplets" section a big update, going from 5 lousy entries to around 40 now (I'm too lazy to re-count them and am still adding when writing this). What you see there is just about every poster and phamplet I've got in my collection, so if you've got something which isn't there, feel free to supply a high-resolution scan of your stuff, thanks! ( check ).

COLLECTION UPDATED
12. JANUARY 2003 - 22:33 CET
I doubt a lot fo you care, but I've updated my collection pages anyway....

WELCOME TO 2003
10. JANUARY 2003 - 22:55 CET
I hope ya'll have entered the new year well. I've been looking through old CDs, again, and found a great deal of the pre-2000 news archives, so I've added those to the archive section along with the Novemver and December 2002 news. ( check ).

I've received an impressive ammount of mails regarding a SNES gadget, called NAKI Game Saver+, featured in my archive section. It seems that most people are missing the piece of paper with codes that came with the unit, so I've scanned it and optimized the game saver page a little. ( check ).

I'm finally online from my new home, so things should return to normal around NES WORLD pretty soon.
