I can rebuild it. I have the technology. I have the capability to make the world's first bionic web site. Game Buzz will be that web site. Better than it was before. Better... stronger... faster. Okay, so I don't really know how to make Game Buzz "bionic", but I have already been working to make it better, stronger, and faster.
I am working on two new news systems. Once one of them is complete, new content should be posted more frequently.

Just days ago I had never heard of the XGameStation, but when I did and I also found out who is behind it, I was immediately excited about its potential. André LaMothe, famed author and editor of countless books about video game development, has turned his attention from helping aspiring game developers learn about software to helping us learn about hardware and software together.
On December 12th, Nurve Networks is expected to release the XGameStation, the first ever video game system "designed specifically for both hardware and software hackers". The XGameStation will be a 16-bit cartridge-based system that includes complete documentation so users can not only develop and distribute their own games, but modify, extend, and even build the hardware itself. The system will be able to generate both raster and vector graphics and Nurve Networks will be offering various modification kits such as expansion ports, controller adapters, and even a backlit LCD module.
For more information about the XGameStation—including more-detailed specifications—check out the official XGameStation web site:
The XGameStation seems to be a divergent project from a portable game system project called the nanoGear. More information about that project is available from its web site:
