Digimon Returns to Toy Aisle?
*additional note: they are already out in the USA ~ Vande*
According to the news at AWN a new line of Digimon toys will be put on the market this coming fall, inspired by the fifth season of Digimon Data Squad, brought to us by people of Toei Animation. The toys will be for young boys ranging from four years old, to eight.
Newly redesigned, the Digivice Data Link, will take after Marcus's in the series. You will have the ability to both train and feed your digimon with it.
New features have been implemented, such as infrared technogoloy allowing a pair of Digimon owners to battle against each other and a new scan function that collects DNA skills from any included DNA metal chip connected to the Digivice Data Link, strengthening characters and unlocking secret items as well as DNA powers for their digimon.
Mini-games are included with the toy, seven short varitation for boosting your Digimon's select stats.
Owners can also collect 1.5-inch collectible Digimon figures, 3.5 inch lightning Digivolving figurines and 5-inch ultra-Digivolving Digimon.
Every character is strapped with a DNA data chip, which can be scanned with the Digivice Data Link.

Forum URL Change
The domain for the forums expires tomorrow, and I don't have enough money right now to renew it, so we're reverting to http://forum.ryux.net/ at least for the moment. We may go back to the domain, I need to consider whether it's worth having it with the level of activity we get these days.

Hosting bill's up: Open for donations
Our hosting bill is up again in a couple of weeks, so I'm opening donations; I'm not expecting anyone to give anything - I know, I'm a terrible webmaster, and really need to update the sites more - but if you'd like to, the Paypal address is email@example.com (just put something in the subject or note about it being for RXN hosting).

Just a heads-up~
The Digimon World Q&A session went through this morning my time (I think I was the only non-North American there, which was pretty freaky!) so I'll write up a full report on it later (once I've tackled this computer design project...). However, what people may be interested in knowing is that they couldn't give me anything on an Australian release, though they said they'd try to find out and get back to me. Fingers crossed!

Got questions about the new Digimon World games?
Hi everyone! Long time no update, I know, but I've been horribly busy. ;_;
As a representative of PW, I've been invited to participate in a conference call this week about the new Digimon World games that are coming out in English soon: Digimon World Data Squad on PS2 and Digimon World Dusk & Dawn on Nintendo DS. Part of this involves questions from the floor, so I'm throwing it open to you: what would you like to know about the games? We'll be talking to representatives of Namco Bandai, so if there's something you'd like to ask head over to the forums and comment in the thread by Sunday and I'll submit your questions to the conference.
I'll be reporting back on the call later next week, so keep an eye out!

Gaomon's voice actor revealed?
According to Anime News Network, Skip Stellrict [Guy: Naruto, Vicious: cowboy Bebop.] will be providing Gaomon's voice. Take this with a grain of salt though, since ANN is user-submitted.
The news was confirmed at WtW a few weeks ago with Jeff Nimoy informing GoC ~ Vande
