If recent ratings by the USK are to be believed, Broken Sword titles for the Wii and DS could be releasing in the future. The ratings have been filed by Ubisoft under both Nintendo systems, but we’ll have to wait and see if the rumor is more than wishful thinking.

Britain really loves Sonic, apparently. A few hundred people living in the UK area were polled and asked what their favorite video game character is. And no – Surprisingly, everyone’s favorite plumber did not take the top spot (though he came pretty close.) Instead, Sonic the Hedgehog was the most popular answer.

Full top 10 list below:

1) Sonic the Hedgehog (24 per cent)
2) Super Mario (21 per cent)
3) Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) (16 per cent)
4) Donkey Kong (11 per cent)
5) Pac Man (10 per cent)
6) Link (The Legend of Zelda) (5 per cent)
7) Max Payne (4 per cent)
8 ) Pikachu (Pokemon) (3 per cent)

NEW YORK, NY – October 21, 2008 – Atari has taken What’s Cooking? with Jamie Oliver out of the oven, and served to retailers across North America. What’s Cooking? with Jamie Oliver is a cooking game which encourages players to create, enjoy and share recipes in the spirit of Jamie Oliver’s cookbooks and TV shows. The portability of Nintendo DS™ means Jamie Oliver is at hand to offer help and inspiration whenever and wherever you feel like cooking up a gourmet treat. What’s Cooking? with Jamie Oliver is the first video game to feature international cooking star Jamie Oliver and his delicious, world-renowned recipes which are now available in North America exclusively on Nintendo DS™.

“I’ve tried to push the game as much as possible interactivity-wise and I’ve tried to make it relevant,” says Jamie Oliver about What’s Cooking? with Jamie Oliver. “It’s a game and you can pass time with it: if you get good at it undoubtedly it will have a positive effect on your real life cooking. With the shopping lists and the sharing of recipes, you can actually shop more efficiently too. So all of this is just fun and a great excuse to push your cooking and get better.”

Nintendo Everything Redesign!

Posted on 10 years ago by in News, Site updates | 6 Comments | 0 Likes

Hi, NintendoEverything fans!
As of late, Valay and I have been talking about redesigning the website a bit.  When I mean “redesign,” I mean not changing the template, but redesigning some colors, designs, graphics, and logos to make our website look more appealing to match our awesome content.  Right now, we have a standard image as a logo with a clash of so many Nintendo characters which is supposed to represent “everything Nintendo in one,” with plain text over it.  We hope to change the image to be a bit more fun, showing Nintendo in the same exact theme, but maybe a clearer image.  I was thinking flash based, but I figured it’s nicer to have an image for faster loading (for some people).  In addition to this, we will be establishing a new logo and waterproof logo (to add to all our content as an official logo/trademark; FINALLY, right?!).  Also, we have a bit darker colors, such as the charcoal gray and the navy blues on top of it; we probably will go in the direction of making our color sceme similar to a Wii-based design, since the blue really stands out on the off-white and looks nice.  Of course, can’t make it too similar or we wouldn’t be unique from Nintendo (or other websites for that matter)!  So, I’ll make sure there are a few new things to make us look more Nintendo friendly!  I’ll post some screenshots in a few days to throw out ideas so our readers can choose which they like best!  After all, we here at Nintendo Everything value the opinions of readers!  Thanks and I hope to see you all comment on whether you want to keep the current look or give your opinion on some of the new probable design looks!

According to G4, E3 will be returning to some of its old ways. The event will be returning to the Los Angeles convention center and will be held in June rather than July. E3 will run, in 2009, from June 2 to June 4. Best of all, as G4 also noted, E3 2009 will “technically be open to the public.” More news is expected to be released in the coming days.
