Look here: ( http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=136 ) The rest is furry related I guess so Mikey will probably like it but this one strip is funny as hell! So, I finally had a chance to stop and play 'Star Wars: Republic Commando'. And I must say Gabe was right! ( http://www.penny-arcade.com/news.php3?date=2005-03-02 ) It is awesome! But one thing that kind of destroyed the whole game for me was the fact that I was only like 10 to 20 minutes into the game and one of my squad got stuck on some wall or some shit. I was pissed my four man squad was down to three! So pissed in fact that I killed my mate to see if that would unstick him. Of course upon reviving him he was still just as stuck. I did have to stop playing after that happened but I'll probably give the game another go tomorrow after work and we'll see if it can redeem itself. On the Nintendo DS side of things... It seems a working DS emulator for homebrew games has been released. ( http://www.cyd.liu.se/~micol972/site/dualis/ ) It doesn't work on my pc but people have reported that it works ok. Also, it seems darkfader ( http://www.darkfader.net ) and the author of hyperDS, another DS emulator, ( http://www.hyperds.com/ ) had a bit of a fight involving the emulator being leaked. This seems to have ended with darkfader removing himself from the DS hack scene. Oh well, it probably won't be too long till he is back posting his findings. I still haven't made the leap into buying a next gen hand-held since I'm still waiting to see the PSP ( http://www.playstation.jp/psp/index.html ) first hand. I didn't really do too much looking at this before this weekend but since the launch is coming up I figure I may as well start checking it out. If the disc it takes holds 1.8 gigs and the biggest memory stick you can use so far is 2 gigs does that mean we'll have game backups? Since games *will run of the memory stick...* Hmmmm.
