    Tokyo Game Show 2010 sees over 200,000 attendees over eight days

    This year’s Tokyo Game Show was the 20th, and it had a ton of people show up for the event, which lasted eight days. (Take that, E3!) Four of those days were closed to the public, and those averaged about 25,000 people per day. However, the public days saw a dramatic increase in numbers, ranging from 61,000 to 81,000 in attendance. 712 titles registered for TGS in advance, and new titles were launched during the event, as well – some of which you can read about here. This year, the organizers also launched programs for cosplayers and a Super Battle Opera fighting game tournament for attendees. This year also established the Game Designers Award in the Japan Game Awards 2010. Next year’s event has already been planned for September 15-18, 2011 at Makuhari Messe. Follow

    After launching only a week ago on September 15, Sony Online Entertainment and LucasArts have already registered one million users for Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, based on the Cartoon Network series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. “We are thrilled to have hit the one million player mark in Clone Wars Adventures so quickly and look forward to seeing the player community continue to grow,” said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. “Combining the technology, design infrastructure and lessons learned from Free Realms with the amazing Clone Wars brand, we knew we could make a great game, and we’re happy to see that fans of all ages are enjoying the content as much as we enjoyed creating it.” In celebration, SOE and LucasArts are giving all current players a special in-game Golden Mouse Droid pet.

I’m pretty sure that some of you may be too young to know who Elvira is. We don’t have many details on the format of the show, but you will have to stay up late. The show seems to be on at 1am or 2am. Get a full listing on her website here. Follow

    This pre-order bonus is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S

    GameStop is basically handing out produce for its Donkey Kong Country Returns pre-order bonuses. Okay, to be fair, they’re not really bananas. No matter how convinving they look, they’re just zippered neoprene banana shaped cases for Wiimotes, which is still pretty cool. Better than some DLC for sure! Not to mention that little lobster claw hook on top – attach the ‘nanas to your carrying case or backpack and you’ll be ready to go for as long as the hook can hold on. Cool, right? So, if you weren’t already going to place a pre-order and want the game, you might want to go ahead and get that set up. Follow

Better computers, smartboards, projector units, software for core subjects and let’s not forget the technology that is used each day in terms of students and even teachers to communicate. The “21th centery” school has begun. With that being said, what should this school include? Should the technology be used only for the benefit of students and the educational process or should the use of technology be extended to the monitoring, or dare I say policing? This fundamental question arrises because a school district within Connecticut has decided to place RFID chips within the I.D Cards of the students and staff of their schools. They have also decided to include the chips within a number of educational items within the school. Items that this would include would be T.V units, Projectors and Laptops.  For clarification, I shall do into a lengthy discussion of the
