House, M.D. - Globetrotting has an Appointment with DSiWare

Posted by Trevor Chan

First of five sessions booked for Monday

Legacy Interactive is teaming up with Glyphic Entertainment to bring us a medical DSiWare series and just like the award-winning drama that it's based on, it will all be split into episodes.

Based on the NBC series House, M.D., House, M.D. - Globetrotting puts players in the role of Dr. House as he leads his team of medical staff at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital as featured on the show. As players meet an elderly television archaeologist by the name of Harry, interviews will have to be conducted, surgery will have to be performed, and dozens of lab tests and mini-games will have to be passed in order to discover more about Harry's secretive life.

The first of five episodes will launch in North America next week on 30th May and will be priced at 800 points. The remaining four will launch on a monthly basis.

Nice time to get these news here, this week's House episode was just shown here few moments ago

Phew! For a moment, I thought there was gonna be a DSIware based on Doogie Houser MD. Phew!



EdEN said:

So it's the same as the retail game but broken down into several releases that makes it be $40?

It's NOT sarcoidosis. And anyone who thinks it is: You're an idiot. Gregory House is my HERO and ROLE MODEL! And, from the looks of it, he's operating on his own leg again. Hope Cuddy (Can't believe Lisa Edelstein is leaving...) shows up, so you can make fun of her butt. And Wilson shows up as well so you can make bets on farm animals! Oh, and one of the mini-games will have to involve breaking into someone's house!



Fuzzy said:

You could probably buy the retail version for $10 now anyway. I think I'll pass on both. Love the show though.

Lupus will need to be dismissed as the diagnosis in the first episode in order for this to be a true House game...

i love house, but id definitely wait for reviews before even thinking about buying this game



armoredghor said:

If I developed this game it would be clues and 4 pieces of life. one for each guess because everyone knows that the first three are wrong.



Linkuini said:

Don't get your hopes up, people. Remember Hell's Kitchen on DSiWare? That had more in common with water-color painting than cooking. If it takes more than one diagnosis to find out what's wrong with this one, I'll eat my insulin pump.

I think the confusion re: NBC stems from the fact that NBCUniversal is one of the producers of the show itself, though the show actually airs on and is branded as a Fox show. Technically, the article is correct in saying that it's an NBC series, but to those unaware of the connection the sentence reads differently. :3

Another thing that'll have to be in the game is that "Harry" will have to lie. After all, everybody lies.

C'mon, he's a great role model! He gets to do things that the rest of us would get fired just for THINKING of, and not even get suspended. Plus, he's always been surrounded by hawt women (Cuddy, Cameron, Masters, Thirteen) that he can flirt with (and sleep with in Cuddy's case), and coworkers he can harass/call idiots (and worse) without consequence, hee hee. I chose the wrong line of work.

I see we have a fellow Hugh Laurie fan in the house.
