March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

Nintendo's new and admittedly hilarious Who Are You? marketing campaign has launched in the US and will feature various Nintendo icons pasted over photos of... stuff. So get your Nintendo on for the run up to Xmas while watching The Matrix Revolutions, reading Playboy, surfing the web, or watching MTV! Show them how it's done, Ninty...

Doesn't anyone feel sorry for Nintendo? They did all the hard work, for years their games were top of the line, and now, no one cares. Their sales are low, why? Its hard to say, perhaps things like Microsoft buying out Rare had something to do with it. Rare made some of the most awesome games, Donkey Kong, Conker's Bad Fur day, etc.
Damn Microsoft, what will they buy next? All they need to do is merge with EA, buy Nintendo and there will be little left...

Nintendo has gotten what they deserve. manipulating publishers and borderline-unethical iron-fisted business practices don't warrant my sympathy.

Matt, you're gonna have to tell me what these practices are. I haven't heard these sorts of things before. Do tell.

Nintendo pretty much forced game publishers to bend to their will as a result of the monopolistic domination of the NES and ogopolistic rule of the SNES -- it's no wonder that 95% of the games industry flooded the PlayStation market.
