Our buddy Jason is gone for the holiday weekend, so here I am to fill in for the LNC post, and I'll be adding games to the Shack Reviews section this Sunday too. There won't be an LNC on Monday though, as it's unlikely there will be enough news to warrant a post.

GameCube PS2 Metal Gear Solid 3 Interview Over at GamePro you can find an interview with Konami's Hideo Kojima, who is asked about Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. MGS3 Q&As deal with reaction to MGS2, online features, the jungle environment, and the game's title while the Twin Snakes Q&As are about using Silicon Knights as developer, and why they are remaking a game instead of creating a new adventure for the GameCube.
Xbox Xbox Wireless Adapter Tired of the extra network cable Xbox Live brought to your living room? The FCC of all places goofed up and posted on their website that they have approved an Xbox wireless adapter using the 801.22g specification (54Mbps). Microsoft confirmed the approval, but declined to comment further for now. Digitimes.com has a picture of the device. Thanks Slashdot Games.

Console Game of the Evening: Double Dribble for the NES. "This was the first sports game I ever played on a daily basis with my friends. There was always a seemingly "magic" spot on the floor where you could drain 3's all day long." (submitted by MannyM).
