We posted about Nintendo’s 2009 earnings report a little bit earlier, but one piece of information that is of significance is the number relating to lifetime DS sales. With this past year of sales, the total sales of the Nintendo DS (128.9 million) broke Nintendo’s record for most units sold, previously held by the Gameboy, at 118.69 million. Congratulations to Nintendo for hitting another milestone in sales!

ESRB Rating: My Fireplace

Posted 13 years ago by in News, Wii | 2 Comments

My Fireplace

An ESRB rating has recently popped up for a new Wii game (probably WiiWare) called “My Fireplace”. I can only assume that the developer behind the game, Korner Entertainment S.L., has seen the lack fireplace simulators on Wii and decided it was time to fill that gap. Unless of course you run the homebrew channel on your Wii and have the “FireWii” application, which displays an interesting looking “fire” over a black background. You know, for those nights when your local TV station isn’t running the all-night fireplace.

Tomorrow is going to be a very crazy day to say the least. A family member passed away on Monday and I will be attending the funeral. Unfortunately, I have to leave the site very early in the morning and I don’t expect to return until midafternoon at the earliest.

I’ve already talked with Austin, and he’s going to update the site as much as possible. If he’s able to, that is. Although he’s going to try his best to cover everything, I want you guys to expect the worst in case his schedule doesn’t work out. I will publish a number of posts to appear on the site at specific times, so that should keep you guys busy until Austin or I start posting.

Honestly, I’m not sure how everything will work out. It’s possible that you won’t see much of a change from normal site updates, which would be nice. But regardless of what happens, please bear with us!

Moving on to Renegade Kid – Jools Watsham was kind enough to agree to an interview opportunity. Based on our interview with Shin’en, however, it seemed as though some of you had a few questions that you would have liked to submit. So before we actually send in questions for the interview, feel free to leave a comment or shoot us an email if anything is on your mind about Renegade Kid!

Lastly, I’ve made a small change to categories. I was browsing the site a bit today and it struck me that it was silly how pretty much everything is labeled as news. We’ve added three new categories now – screenshots, videos, and random. The first two are self-explanatory, but you can expect posts such as art, weird facts, etc. to be labeled as random. We’ll only be using the news category for actual news from here on out.

Anyway, that’s all for now. I’ll be publishing a few posts in the morning before I leave, but as I said earlier, I’ll have other updates scheduled to go live throughout the day.
