this was already mentioned in the 1up and GameInformer interviews with Carmack but I think it deserves a post of its own. Never been really into handheld gaming but I now have reasons to get a DS: Bioware's Sonic RPG and Carmack's Orcs and Elves and maybe Itagaki's Ninja Gaiden.

To receive praise from Carmack deserves you a big pat on the back. I think he would be something great on the Wii. I'd love to see it.
