yeah, you can only hope they will try to spend some money on the needed drivers (can't be that difficult).. them bastards for removing it.. The PS3 is the only console that gets fewer options with every new revision.. You got a very good point about Sony. Sony removes features with almost every rev...

I recently picked up a PS3 Slim, and there's no Linux support for it, what the hell... Any chance someone has figured out how to run homebrew code on a PS3 Slim? Otherwise I might actually have to consider trading for, or buying another, older PS3. Unfortunately, No-one has found a way to run homeb...

That's cool. I just bought Mean Streets about a month ago.

I like how great that ScummVM has gotten, not only that it can play Scumm games but other engines as well such as AGI, etc.

So,

Lucasarts is still licensing Scumm to 3rd parties such as Humongous Entertainment which means that Lucasarts is still making money off it.

I didn't know that they were still licensing Scumm.

Trust me, I'm sure gilbert knows that not many would like to buy a 2D SCUMM based game today! What I'd wanna see from Gilbert is Maniac Mansion 3! Unfortunately, Lucasarts still owns the copyrights to Maniac Mansion so I don't see another game coming out espically since Lucasarts only cares about S...

The only thing that I can say about the XDK is the programs developed with them are, in fact, actually illegal which means that even if a new version was released, it can't be distributed on the official scummvm site. This is coming from someone who owns both an XBOX, XBOX 360 and PS3 system. I've w...

Yeah, I almost fell over when I saw that, I grabbed the compilation immediately. I checked the discs out on my USB 3.5 floppy disc drive but it couldn't read the disc, so I check out other discs too and the drive couldn't read any discs. So, I went out to my local Staples store earlier today and bou...

Hi, There's also a project I'm working on called ScummGEN (http://scummgen.googlecode.com) which has unfortunately no release yet. The project is in a very good shape though, as a lot of features have already been implemented (check out the wiki news updates for some more information). I'm starting...

It is funny, that request. Before 1990 no game had voice since the normal media were diskettes with 1.44 MB capacity. Plus, hardly anyone had a sound adapter, so most people were listening to PC speaker sound. The Amiga was a bit more comportable, though, but since it used DD diskettes with 720 KB ...

What a find, Lucasarts Classic Adventures Compilation

Last Saturday, I found The Lucasarts Classic Adventures Compilation which contains Secret Of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Loom, Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken at a church sale in Fogelsville, PA for $.50. I bought it because I've been wanting to get those games for years and ...

Once you have your Linux (any Linux) working on the PS3, you should be able to compile any version of ScummVM you wish. I've typed up how to do this before here; http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=5507 Well, I did download the source to ScummVM 0.13 and I'll try to compile it when I get the ...

Just got Space Quest Collection

About 2 weeks ago, I went to the local discount store called Big Lots and look at their computer game section and I found copies of The Space Quest Collection for $6. I snatched it up right away. I'm a big fan of classic games and I love the Sierra games. Own Kings Quest Collection, Police Quest col...
