Okay so… I havent posted here in a really long time. So much has been happening over the last bit that my head is spinning.
Where to start… Hmmm….. Updates
I upgraded my GPU to the new GeForce pci Card and have since been enjoying a plethora of new 3D adventures
On that Note…
!!!Two Episodes of Sam and Max have been released since last I posted!!!
This is clearly an example of me failing to accomplish the goals established in my original Mission Statement for this blog.
While I apologize for this, I also make no promises to try any harder
The currently released titles are thus
EP1: Culture Shock
A Villainous Mastermind has brainwashed 4 former child stars to promote his Hypnosis inducing ocular fitness tapes in order to dominate the airwaves.
EP2: Situation Comedy
A famous tv talkshow host\guru cracks up and takes an entire studio hostage. I hate to say it but i think Oprah might end like this (wearing her Dr Phil suit)
Personal dislike of oprah/Dr phil aside
, the games are fantastic, Telltate has been doing a fantastic job with the series and i cant wait for the next one.
Next on the list *opens scratchpad, flips a few pages* Oh yes!
!!!!!!!The Nintendo Wii is out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not only is it available but it has been world wide for quite some time now.
I managed to get one (and Zelda TP) on launch day, after a very long and cold lineup. That wal-mart was the only plake in the skeena region that had Wii’s on lauch day. The place was packed, Mosly everyone was joking about the PS3 bb-gun drive-by incedent.
I also ran into an old "friend" of mine from almost 20 years ago. I was sort of messed up, but nevermind about that.
I recently completed The new Zelda and I have nothing but good things to say about the experience. 50+ hours of steady progress during gameplay and boss fights that make you stand up and yell "Take That Mothe****er!!!" in victory make one hell of a combination.
Over the last few weeks i have become way more active at ScummVM. I have always been around the forums a lot but lately i have been wanting to do more. These days you can see me pretty regularly at #scummvm on irc learning how to compile under Dev-C++, a process that i will probably document and commit to the WIKI. Recently in my spare time I have been working on a Readme/FAQ for the PalmOS port and have made significant progress on it. I sent the WIP readme to the PalmOS dev Chrilith and It sound like we should be able to get together on it and make a final draft fairly soon. In fact, with regards to ScummVM, the last few weeks have been fantastic. Currently peres (the dev creating the new parralaxion engne) has really been helping me a lot in figuring out how to compile ScummVM and in the process I have learned so much. A real bonus is that I get to see (and possibly even help) this new engine evolve into a stable release and in the process i can learn the fundamentals of Reverse Engineering an engine for ScummVM.
I am so ridiculously stoked about this I cant believe it (hence the lack of any formatting above)
I think my next ScummVM project will be a series of instructional videos for New Users, probably hosted via youtube. Ive found a few direct screen video capture program that should work for what i need it to. From there its just a matter of editing it together with a voice over and Descriptive visual effects. Im Looking forward to doing this one.
[Inert Favorite Chuck Norris Joke Here] ~sorry about the re-run.
