"Obama Says: Yes We Can is a Simon Says game based on Barack Obama's New Hampshire Primary speech, as later turned into song by will.i.am. Watch the game create a pattern of button and direction presses, and repeat that pattern correctly to score! The more you get correct, the harder the patterns become – can you keep up?" Oh blimey.
Lots of good stuff in here I didn't know about, all for your DS, and all not illegal. Hurrah for homebrew.
"With DS Reader you can read any e-book (or text file) on your DS. It even has a great little bookmarking function to keep track of your progress." Ooh.
"Game Trivia Catechism is a multiple-choice trivia game, testing your knowledge of video gaming. It can be played as straight trivia, or as part of a story that follows Al and Sally as they compete in the King of Game Trivia Tournament." Looks awesome.
"Current mass-market games present simulations of incredible fidelity. Many of these titles also push genre boundaries and offer new mechanics to players. The problem, argues Ubisoft’s Patrick Redding (FAR CRY 2), is that these two developments are disconnected. Game output appears information-rich, but how much of that information can the player actually use to play better, and how much of it is just there to be spectacular or cinematic?" I would pretty much kill to see this. Gah.
For those of you who might not be aware of its size, James has put the size of Gaza in context through comparing it to maps of other cities. Simple, effective communication.

As part of the London Games Festival Fringe (and yes, the “Fringe” is important), the London Gamer Geeks are running a pub quiz in their monthly meeting slot.
Given that James, Dan and my good self are your hosts for the evening, this blogpost is my short notice announcement for the event. Anyone’s welcome – the quiz itself kicks off at half seven, but we’ll be at the pub from about half six. Early arrival strongly recommended if you want a table.
Details are at upcoming, if you’re interested. And, as if you needed any more reasons to attend… let it be known that there will be cake.
Here’s hoping for a good turn-out!
