Today's round-up of the best posts at the CMP Game Group's GameSetWatch video game weblog includes news of a new Korean clone for Sony's PSP, an interactive fiction version of a sysadmin's weekend hell, and a look into some of the more mysterious voice actors for Sony Online's EverQuest II. - The Cenix GMP-M6 has been located on "the incredibly generic-monikered TechEBlog", and "is apparently looking to take on the PSP in [South] Korea". According to the site: "This system features a MiniSD Card Slot, 2″ Widescreen TFT-LCD Display, and FM Tuner, and a couple of built-in games, with 50,000 more downloadable via the web." - Academic and designer Nick Montfort has released the Book & Volume text adventure, explained by the Grand Text Auto site as follows: "As a sysadmin in Book and Volume’s nTopia, it’s easy to know what to do. Your computer, your pager, and your boss are constantly telling you. And you must spend your Sunday night running around rebooting servers whether you like it or not (there’s a big demo coming up!) or get fired." - Sony Online's EverQuest II has a great deal of voice actors, and GameSetWatch points to a look at the more obscure, according to website Aggro Me: "Heck, there's even Mae Whitman playing Lilly Ironforge, and Mr. Aggro points out: 'If you're an Arrested Development fan, you may be interested to know that Mae played Anne Veal, George Michael's very religious girlfriend.'"
