Cyberion Releases His Hellcat Update ID

Following up on his neat Drayman work, Cyberion has put together a Hellcat for people to use.

Not high on the poly count, so good for the fast rendering. :D Few details (nurnes) make it look very realistic from a distance. Originaly the model was created just to increase my modeling abilities. Currently it is being used in my personal freeware game based on the Wing Commander Universe.

With the zip you can find several texture files, textured model file and untextured model file. Also you may find the rendered image to show the model a little bit. ;) Ohh ya, you may distribute it freely while it goes with this text file. :D

I hope you like this Hellcat model. I spent three days making it, not very hard, but I put into it some soul. ;)

Neat. You can pick it up here.

Nintendo DS Design Finalized Update ID

Nintendo has finalized the name and design of their next portable system. It's a bit sleeker than their E3 model and apparently a little more compact. The price and release date are still undecided, but Nintendo has reiterated the unit will be on sale in the next several months. The system features two screens, with the bottom screen acting as a touch pad and second monitor. There's a microphone input for voice recognition, and wireless play is supported. Although new games will be in a separate format, older cartridges such as Prophecy Advance will continue to be supported.

RPS Highlights Origin Fandom

Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
