Nintendo Plans to Fix Zelda: Skyward Sword Fatal Glitch

Posted by Scotty Fields on 9:57 AM

Nintendo announced yesterday that it has heard the complaints and concerns of players who have encountered the fatal glitch and it is responding.

For those of you who are not familiar with the fatal glitch, let me explain how to encounter it and what it does.
The glitch occurs during the Song of the Hero quest. To trigger the glitch you must do the following:

1.)  Complete the Lanayru Desert portion of the quest
2.)  Speak with Golo the Goron in Lanayru Mine
3.)  Complete the quest and receive that portion of the song
4.)  Go back to the mine and speak with Golo once more

Doing this will effectively lock you out of the quest chain. Unless you have an earlier save file, this means having to start the adventure over. This occurs late in the game and has caused grief for many players already.

In an effort to resolve the issue, Nintendo has announced that it will provide two solutions for it's players.

-  If your Wii is connected to the internet you will be able to download a "Program" (patch?) that will resolve the issue.
-  If you do not have an internet connection you can ship your SD card or Wii system to Nintendo and they will repair it manually.

Call Nintendo 1-800-255-3700 for a shipping address or concerning any questions you may have around this information.


Nintendo Announces First Quarter Releases- Kid Icarus: Uprising

Posted by Scotty Fields on 1:20 PM

Kid Icarus fans, we now have a release date for the long-awaited sequel to the original NES and gameboy games.  The game is titled Kid Icarus: Uprising and will be available on March 23, 2012.  The game will feature the classic story of Pit versus Medusa but will take battles to the air as well as the ground.  The game will also support a multiplayer mode which features team battles up to 3vs3.  If you have been holding out on buying a 3DS (like I have), this may be the reason to shill out the dough.

Minecraft - Bukkit 1.0 is Now Officially an RB

Posted by Scotty Fields on 9:41 AM

Late last night the developers at CraftBukkit made an announcement that had Minecraft administrators everywhere jumping for joy: CraftBukkit 1.0 is now a recommended build!

For those of you who haven't heard about Minecraft (where have you been?) or who have heard of it but don't know what it's about, I will attempt to summarize:

Minecraft is a sandbox game about harvesting blocks or MINEing them and then CRAFTing those blocks into whatever the player desires.  Players can build structures, working circuits, boats, and weaponry as well as gain levels, enchant weapons, fight a dragon and pretty much whatever they can think up.  The world that the player characters live in is extensive - rumored to cover five times that of our own earth's surface.  It has biomes, changing weather, day/night progression, caves, oceans and plant life. It can be played as a single-player or a multi-player game and offers a couple of different game modes that an administrator can choose based on what he/she desires out of the server's community.

CraftBukkit is an interface for Minecraft mods.  What that means is that it offers a stable platform with which other independent developers can build on.  There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of mods that have been developed for CraftBukkit that do things like provide an economy system or add skills and faction to the game.

Until now, the latest version of Minecraft (version 1.0.1) was not compatible with CraftBukkit due to changes in the code made by Notch.  This meant that many Minecraft server administrators simply ran an older version of Minecraft (beta 1.8) which meant they missed out on improvements that Notch had made to the game or upgraded but dropped CraftBukkit until a recommended build came out.

I am a Minecraft server administrator myself and we have rolled the CraftBukkit recommended build out to our server today!  I can't wait to see all of the cool mods out there that will make our server better.
