    I while back I started a thread on how I thought the Nintendo DS stylus is going to be revolutionary. One of the things I mentioned was a surgery game. Well it looks like one is in the works.

    I'm not so sure about "cheering" on a patient, but using a stylus to make incisions is cool.

    Some are pessimistic about the stylus, but I really think its a great option to give game developers. I'm curious what classic games might get ported to the DS. Certain titles like X-Com would work well espically with the stylus. I crave for an Elite remake.


    Here is a link to the old thread incase someone is intrested in it.

    Revolution? I Played that same thing on Amiga /Atari ST ten years ago, when it was called 'Life and Death' :)

    With the Atari ST emulator and Pocket PC you can play the game with the stylus, btw.

    :D Hey, i remember this game, it was really old school when it came to the difficulty of the game, if you know what i mean. Impossible to go far in this game...

    BTW Atlus said that they put the game in a SF world because they didn't want the kids to go nuts, and start an appendectomy on their little sisters. :lol:

    I've played that game as well. However, most of my patients died (well, I enjoyed taking organs out :lol: ). Glorious old school days :lol:
