View Full Version : Greyware Reporting

Hey guys, loved the latest show, I'm glad your keeping an above board approach to things in the greyware department. I too buy my games, and use my supercard (minisd) to keep them on the go with me, and i thought i was keeping up on the homebrew, I had moonshell, dsorganize, and nds mail, but your latest show totaly blew my mind. when i put on newer versions and tried out the dsorganize homebrew database i couldnt belive it, or beup for that matter. this system just keeps getting better and better.
can't say how much use i'd get out of many of these applications, but i'm starting to warm up to the idea of keeping my contacts on dsorganize,
since getting my lite and my wife getting hers, my sister (37 has bought one, my brother has as well) seems anyone who comes in contact with one wants one for themselves, truely amazing to see a good platform taking off like this. Now if we can only get someone to stop porting doom and port diablo already.

AMEN BROTHA! I'd take a Norrath/BG game too (they stole fizzy lifting drinks from Diablo), but I figure Blizzard will deliver to the DS soon enough.
As we've demonstrated on the show...I think it could take me 5 min to draw out a 100% workable way to play Diablo on the DS...Its a NO BRAINER. As long as Blizzard didn't farm the game out to some fools (Such as the developers of Dino Master) I know they could do a quality product. But understand, without WiFi it would be a shadow of its former self.

i dont think they would need to change much, playing Animal Crossing or Lost In blue, they have the run and pick up survival aspects that are in diablo, it just fits way to well to not do this game. The people i'm seeing around me buying ds's are the ones that played and loved diablo, they are pc gamers who didnt get sucked into the whole console, (xbox ps2) craze.
they are still wanting a good input system with mouse keyboard. the ds gives us just that. i think its time to return to those games that we loved so much on the pc when they truely were good games, I love counterstrike, but it woudnt be fun on the ds, diablo would, i could see starcraft being a bit microscopic to manage, but i'd sure buy it.
I'm a graphics guy, not a programmer, is there any reason doom was so easily ported, and something like diablo isnt? not sure why this hasnt been done with so many developer type minds out there that love the ds.
oooh to hear deckard caine speak through my ds speakers.

Maybe because the source code and blessing of ID have been given for DOOM and there is no source code or blessing for Diablo? Maybe Blizzard released it .. I dunno - but I wouldn't think so.
I don't think a straight port of Diablo would be super fab on the DS. We'll need a special two screen version.

never thought of that, ya a two screen rework would be good, but what i'm refering to is the game dynamics/graphics, i dont want to see a bubble head, giant on screen cell shaded version, where they take out town portals and put in special DS doorways.
Keep it true to the game, put really usable info on the second screen perhaps switchable like in lost in blue, Map view (Click) Health View (Click) View of the second players screen as you both run around doing damage.

Oh, I would keep it on a single screen, but let's get the other screen in good use. Let's see inventory, action, etc down there all the time. Map, etc.
Flip the screen option too.
No one uses the Select button...It could flip the screen. Touch screen could be the main battle screen, tap to attack, move and pick up items. Top screen would be inventory or map which you could flip back and forth, when you want to play in the inventory hit the Select button and it puts it on the touch screen where you can drag and drop your items. Mana and Health = L and R shoulder buttons...Its a pretty simple concept and personally I'd pay for a straight port, no problem...For me the fun would be in the multiplayer aspects.
