I don't really understand the "easy compression" one (I don't think all the information about how it works is included in the article), but it doesn't really apply to the way the VB's graphics work, anyway.

The stuff about rendering stereo pairs from 3D models is pretty good, I guess, but the VB has so few pixels (and colors) available, it's a much better idea to just use "pixel art" for everything (except for the occasional "cut scene" I suppose).

Thanks for the links, though. Be sure to share anything else you find in the future. In fact, I hope others join in and make this thread grow!
