  1. A Post-Nuclear Role-Playing Game

    Couple of things I really liked about Fallout... It was a very clever satire on a 1950s American vision of a looming nuclear holocast fueled by the onset of the Cold War. Now that's a mouthfull. Ron Perlman's marvelous voice work in the intro.
  2. DS modding

    MaxConsole would be a good place to start. Be very careful what you buy. There is a lot of crap out there.
  3. Ron Gilbert interview on Gamasutra

    An interesting read. I mostly agree with what he is saying about the state of storytelling in the industry. It has been a while since I played a game with a really absorbing, clever story. Most games seem to be based on a loose premise and rely on movie cliches or clumsy plot devices to move the story along. Since I couldn't possibly play every single game out there I honestly can't say there isn't any good storytelling. There must be the odd exception.

    Just found this interview. Haven't had time to read it yet. http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20060630/murdey_01.shtml
  5. What DS games to buy

    Just started playing Phoenix Wright and I am loving it. Reminds me of the old PC adventure games. For some reason I keep thinking of Willy Beamish. The characters are just hilarious. Especially during the courtroom battles. Highly recommended if you like adventure games.

  7. ScummVM DS - Sam and max video

    http://us.codejunkies.com/shop/product.asp?c=US&cr=USD&cs=$&r=0&l=1&ProdID=750 I bought this one instead. Doesn't come with the 4GB HD but rather uses compact flash cards. This suits me better since I can have a whole bunch of CF cards with different things on them. Holding thumbs that they will release some better software to deal with the problems posed in the above review. Otherwise I guess I'll have to write my own .
  8. ScummVM DS - Sam and max video

    Could something like this not be used for scummvm and other homebrew instead of a Pass Me? http://us.codejunkies.com/news_reviews.asp?c=US&cr=USD&cs=$&r=0&l=1&p=17&i=8997&s=8 Not sure if it has been released yet and don't know if it is compatible with the DS Lite (I am assuming it would have to be). Edit: Just found a review... http://maxconsole.net/?mode=news&newsid=7135
