ScummVM

ScummVM is an emulator I found which runs old LucasArts point-and-click adventure games. Other then Myst, I’ve never played an adventure game but decided to try the emulator out. Short for Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion Virtual Machine, it works pretty well even thought the user interface feels a little outdated. I’ve been playing two games with it, Beneath a Steel Sky and Sam & Max Hit the Road. Beneath a Steel Sky was released as freeware and is a great cyberpunk game with a good sense of humor. I’ve just started playing Sam & Max but am a big fan of the comic.

Doctor Who comes to America!

About time too. The Sci-Fi channel finally picked up the new seasons of Doctor Who and will start airing season one in March. I’ve already seen season one thanks to the wonderful computer internet, but most people in the United States will see the new series for the first time, including my friends who have never heard of the Doctor. Season two will air in the UK on BBC One sometime this spring.
