Never a crew to let a single viewpoint dominate (we\'re still cleaning up the offices from the Great Console Wars of 01/02), our man Chris Martin has stepped up to the metaphorical typewriter. Those of you who find the Nintendo Revolution a bit too syrupy-sweet and dreamily perfect most likely share some of Chris\' concerns.

With the announcement of the Revolution controller, Nintendo has proven that, at least some of the time, they really \"get\" it. Get what? Gaming. In a next-gen lineup that has been, frankly, a total snooze-fest, the Revolution has finally shown us a sliver of light, which we think will broaden into a bright new direction for game design to explore. While Sony and Microsoft are content to release platform upgrades, it looks like Nintendo is the only one attempting to move gaming to a new generation.

game: Zelda
The creator of The Legend of Zelda series made rather cryptic comments recently about how The Twilight Princess will be the final Zelda title we\'ll see in this form. Changes are coming. Now that the Nintendo Revolution\'s controller has come onto the stage, we couldn\'t help but wonder exactly what that means. Will Zelda be better for the ability to fish and draw a bow with your hand? We take a look at what Zelda might be in just a few years.

Matt\'s back with a whole new edition of the GF! Mailbag. Why don\'t we have any cheats on the site? Do graphics really matter to gamers? Or are we just spouting off about nothing? And we finally answer the question that\'s been on gamers\' minds for over two years now: \"How do I install Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic?\" Witness the amazing array of reader mail we\'ve gotten since, well, last week!

Nintendo has pulled the Revolution controller from its magic hat, and the gaming community is now reeling in surprise. Initial responses around GamesFirst have ranged from, \"Wow,\" to, \"That\'s the ugliest thing I\'ve ever seen.\" How well the controller works depends on the quality of games Nintendo and third party developers can produce. Another question, though: After months of fan mock-ups and fake Revolution photos, did any of them get it right? Did anyone get even close? Turns out one or two did.

George, our resident Nintendophile, rolls around some ideas about the newly revealed Revolution controller. With few details to go on, George outlines some of the potential of the new controller, as well as some of our reservations (such as, what is the legal limit to the number of \"dongle\" jokes we can make in a single article?). Check out his impressions of the Revolution controller in this editorial.

Back in the day, we used to publish the best letters we got and our most cleverest or thoughtful (or both) answers. Well, it\'s been awhile, but we\'re very happy to resurrect the GF! Mailbag. You can send your questions to be answered by our team of gaming experts to mailbag[AT]gamesfirst.com or, if you\'re not the curious type, you can also send in any rants, raves, reactions, thoughts, jokes, rumors, etc. We\'ll feature the best in future installments of the Mailbag.

There is a raging debate going on right now about the next generation of gaming consoles. For many, it can be summed up like this: Do prettier graphics justify an entirely new generation? Are the graphics in the next generation enough of an improvement to justify an entirely new generation? With game development cycles getting longer and hardware cycles getting shorter, it\'s entirely appropriate to address the issue of whether or not the next generation of home consoles is really worth it.

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox 360 will be sold in two different packages, with the primary difference being whether or not there\'s a hard drive. Now, many in the gaming community are asking themselves if the extra hundred dollars is worth the mass media storage or not. We sit down to go over what the hard drive will give you, why you should care, and if it\'s for you. Pulling from a number of different sources, including interviews with members of the industry in the know, we do our best to make the decision easy for you. At least as best we can before the system actually launches.

Our man Aaron addresses the issue of whether or not to buy an Xbox 360 with a hard drive or without. After some recent comments from Epic about the Unreal Engine, it looks like the debate is still very much on. If you are not a current Xbox owner, or if you don\'t care much about Xbox Live and playing old Xbox games, then you definitely need to check out Aaron\'s analysis here.
