These are the February Update news:
- Server: RomSeeker (which is hosting this page) will move to a new
server. Although everything should be alright, there is the possibility
of some downtime. If you find this site down please try again later.
- PSX2: Sony has announced the price at which its new system will be
placed for sale in Japan. Anyone with 780 USD will be able to
buy the console. Meanwhile, the games will cost around 80 USD.
It's a bit pricey, even for a 128 bits system. Let's hope they get
down to Earth and lower it so they can compete with Dreamcast's price.
- Updates: sorry for the recent lack of updates, but I'm feeling quite
sick at the moment... Anyway, I would like to thank you all for the
support messages (and job offers) sent to me after this cjb.net
problem. I still haven't decided what will I be doing in the long term,
but I'll be keeping this page for now.
- UltraHLE: version 1.50 of the most famous N64 emulator is approaching.
Some snapshots have already been released, but there's not a fixed release
date right now... just a "coming soon".
- URL: it seems that cjb.net has decided to delete my account. For
what I've been told, they do this to some sites when they are getting
popular. This way, they get more hits to their own site. This drives
me mad... I've been working on this page for the last 16 months, I've
done it because I liked RPGs and I wanted to help other RPG fans around
the world. The only reward I get to do this are the support messages
from my visitors (since pratically no one visits my sponsors). And know
what? I was happy with it. Receiving mails saying that my page is a nice
place is really cool. But all my work in these months seems wasted... How
many people that were using my cjb.bet URL won't come back because they
don't know how to reach me? Should I still work on this site now that
everything seems lost? To be honest, I really don't know.
webmaster, who is also the owner of
Emu Realm, a site
for which I review games, told me that he would be interested in having
me working in his page in case I drop this. But I just don't want to
throw away this site... not like this... Tell me what to do...
Drop me an e-mail saying wether I should
keep this page or not. It's up to you...
- PSX 2: According to Sony's informations, their new system won't be
compatible with all the PSX games. A compatibility list is being
prepared at the moment. So far, 15 games were already announced as
incompatible (none of them was a RPG).
- Pokemon: Nintendo has announced a new N64 pack that will hit
the stores in the 27th of March. The 64 bits system will come
bundled with two controlers (an Atomic Purple and a Gray one),
Pokemon Stadium, a battle guide, a Pokemon poster, an official
Wizards of the Coast Pokemon trading card and the N64 Transfer
Pak (that will enable you to transfer Pokemons from the Red, Blue
or Yellow versions to Pokemon Stadium). This limited edition
will cost $149.95. If you already have a N64, you can buy
Pokemon Stadium with the Transfer Pak at a cost of $69.95. This
offer will be available in 6th of March. Seems like Nintendo
will keep using Pikachu and friends to get easy profits :).
- Update: Devin Morgan has updated his Mario RPG walkthrough.
You can get it at the Help section.
- Music: I've added 5 new songs to the background playlist. With
30 musics at the moment, this has became the largest background playlist
I've ever seen on a page. One of these days I'll try to come up with
- Final Fantasy: Square has confirmed three new episodes of
their famous saga. Final Fantasy 9 for PlayStation will
still be released this year. It'll drop the science-fiction
approach from FF7 and 8 in order to use an environment
similar to Final Fantasy 6. Final Fantasy 10 will have a
similar environment, but it'll be an exclusive for the PSX2.
As for Final Fantasy 11, it's expected to be released in 2001.
It'll be one of the first multiplayer RPGs to appear for
Sony's 128 bits system.
- Walkthroughs: Joshua Frappier allowed me to place his Shining
Force walkthrough on this page. Check out the Help section and
- Zelda Gaiden: July is the confirmed release date for
the release of this sequel to Zelda 64. For a complete
preview of this game check September's news in the Archive.
- Music: this section is now available! Get ready to download
some great songs!
- Time Stalkers: this Dreamcast RPG is about to hit the USA!
You'll be Sword (guess all the good names have already
been used...) and you must return people to their right
place in time. You'll travel through the medieval Europe,
visit the Ancient Egypt and even drop by Japan in the 80's!
All this in a 3D world with complete liberty of movements
(according to what SEGA says :) ). Mini games for the VMU
are also included.
