ENTRY REVIVAL: “All Night Nippon and how obscure Japanese culture impacts your Nintendo games”, now with more Satellaview relation!

Someone who’s been backreading on my old Blogspot blog location asked me why I was missing the “All Night Nippon” article (He found it a very interesting read).

I told him that I thought the article was a bit misplaced at the time, but developments were coming along and I thought to revive it. Well, the development I got wasn’t quite what I expected, but I got it!

This one’s a fairly long one, so I’m gonna use that “more” code I haven’t used in a while. Read the rest of this entry »

St.GIGA at last.FM?

MadHatter at the BS Zelda forums linked me this the other day;

A profile for “St.GIGA” at last.fm

I don’t really know how this site works, but I have checked out the various listings. In particular, the “tracks” listing has an entry for “BS Tantei Club ending theme”. Hmm…!

There is also a “St.GIGA Radio” option. The musical selection in this is a very bizarre mixed lot of Middle Eastern, Americana, and Japanese.

If this is the same St.GIGA from the old times, I wonder if this would mean well for the archival of Satellaview data…

Comment: Another rumor is shut down.

I’m gonna link to Unseen64 now on an article I found there of interest:

Apparently there was confusion over this SFC Zelda 2 Tech Demo screenshot, with people saying it may have been intended for the Satellaview. Needless to say, that article should explain – it was not. Rather sad, really… I am a bit of a Zelda 2 fan. Notably, the magazine scan is from 1988, and the protagonist is not the Satellaview mascot – this should’ve reasonably thrown some buzzers into my head about it, but I didn’t want to outright deny anything blindly.

I doubt anything came of the SFC Zelda 2. 🙁

An interesting note about the old “Famicom Tsushin” Magazine, though, is that it seems related to “Satellaview Tsushin”…. perhaps the latter being a spinoff of the former.

More info about the magazine, now called “Famitsu”, can be looked up starting here;
