Today's round-up includes the announcement of Resident Evil: Deadly Silence for the Nintendo DS, a call for new members for noted female game clan The Frag Dolls, and the launch of a play-for-money online game site powered by GameTrust, as well as the latest product news and today's Gamasutra job postings. - Capcom has announced Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, the latest Nintendo DS game to use DS as a subtitle acronym after Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits, Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, and Advance Wars: Dual Strike. The game is a remake of the original PlayStation Resident Evil with added touch-screen features, including an apparent first-person view and stylus-based minigames. The game has thus far been announced only for Japan, with no U.S. release confirmed yet. - The Frag Dolls, a female clan of gamers sponsored by Ubisoft, has announced the search for a new member into the group. "The girls and I have been receiving e-mails and comments from fans, gamers and friends asking how they can become a Frag Doll," said team captain Rhoulette. "Well, here's your chance!" The call for entries will begin at the 2005 Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle on the 27th and 28th, and continue to be open to nationwide gamers. Interested applicants must submit a "video game resume," recent color photographs of themselves, as well as an optional audition videotape answering the question "Why should you be a member of the Frag Dolls?" The new member will replace departing member Eekers, one of the group's founding competitors. - Game Trust and the Money Gaming Corporation have announced the launch of MoneyGaming.com, an online skill gaming site. Offering games such as 8-ball pool, backgammon, chess, and Mahjong, the site allows players to raise the stakes while playing any of the 9 games available. "Game Trust works with different portals to provide subscriptions, tournaments and virtual merchandise sales," said Game Trust CEO Adeo Ressi, "and nobody has put the level of thought into making skill gaming work like The Money Gaming Corporation. They have leveraged the Game Trust technology to build a state-of-the-art system that provides an unparalleled user experience." - Also updated today: product news including Kynogon's announcement of its Kynapse AI for Xbox 360, Hi-Rez Studio's signing of Unreal Engine 3 for its MMO, and the latest Gamasutra job postings, including positions from CMP Media, Disney Buena Vista Games, Evil Twin Studios, Hybrid Graphics, Pandemic Studios, Sony Online Entertainment, and THQ.
