J's Guide to TFC

More original content from The Haus! In the first of a series of articles on the subject, our very own J give us an Introduction to Team Fortress Classic. The Master and I have never played TFC, but after reading this article we will be rectifying that situation soon.

More Obi-Wan at Stomped

JCal has posted an interview with Kevin Schmitt and Ryan Kaufman, designers on LucasArts' upcoming first/third-person shooter, Episode I: Obi-Wan. Naturally, they talk about the overall level design in the game (duh). Thanks Shugashack.

MiniJam Review

Visor Central has posted a review of InnoGear's MiniJam, an MP3-playing Springboard module for Handspring's Visor PDAs. The possibility of getting a MiniJam is one of the reasons I chose a Visor over a Palm PDA. Check out the review, it looks like it was worth the wait.

Jaquays Interview

The Mean Arena interviewed id's Paul Jaquays about finishing up Q3: Team Arena and starting work on the new Doom. Thankfully there are no "How did you get into the business?" type questions. Thanks Blue.

POR interview, Day 2

Day 2 of the Pool of Radiance interview is online at the Adrenaline Vault. Major topics include the changes from the original combat system in the 2nd edition of AD&D to the 3rd, how those affect the game, and the new character special skills available because of the 3rd ed. rules. Cool.


Okay, here's a free chuckle: Microsoft Linux. Thanks Blue.

On other topics-looks like our DNS has finally stabilized, and I hope to get some other system upgrades done soon. I need to upgrade quite a bit of the Haus's internals, so we may have some up/down time issues in the next month or so. I'll try to keep it short :-)

New NOLF Demo

If you were put off by the huge size of the previous No One Lives Forever demo, Monolith has released a trimmed down version weighing in at 45.7M. It doesn't have the music and contains only one level. You can download it from FilePlanet. Thanks Blue.

Obi-Wan interview

Hopefully AT didn't post this one on me already :-) Stomped has a new interview with Kevin Bruner, lead programmer on Obi-Wan, the much-anticipated Star Wars game coming from LucasArts. They talk about the new graphics engine, AI, and scripted events in the new game. Check it out.

Pool of Radiance interview

Adrenaline Vault has an interview with Jon Kromrey, producer on the new Pool of Radiance game. Good stuff.

I'm truly pumped to see this game in production-I had the original Pool of Radiance on my Apple //, and that game ROCKED. Played it over and over and over, until I killed the floppies. That was a great game :-)
