    Casual Gaming news 11/14/2007

    I’m kind of in the midst of business at this moment and I wanted to stop a bit to give you the news for this week. Korea is buzzing all in my ear and the last news story I’ve posted will tell you about Korean game development studios and their projects. I’m going to skip commentary at the end of articles this week for the likely chance that some one else will comment this time. Until then enjoy: [b]PS3 “not yet ready” for casual games, says Oberon[/b]- peaking at an interactive entertainment conference, Oberon Media chairman Tal Kerret said that he doesn’t think the PlayStation 3 is ready for their casual games.

    Women with curves have a higher IQ

    Well being curvy in a city that thinks pinch-able skin is a sign of obese could finally be a good thing. According to a recent study, curves means fatty Omega 3 deposits on the hips which is supposed to not only help you have children and have a higher IQ. The study tested 16,000 women and found that the bigger the difference between the hip and waist measurements the better the test results. But don’t use this as an excuse to not exercise ever again. Researchers are quick to point out that other societal factors could be involved and that waist to hip ratio is low on men’s list of desires in a mate. Oh well, looks like I’m back to exercising on my Wii. But if you ever need a pick me up, just remember that you probably have a higher IQ than some of our less curvy counterparts.

    Video Games in the Classroom

    This is by far the most interesting concept that has spur out of my Observation days in a high school thus far. A Social Studies teacher is completing a unit on World War I and will begin World War II within a few weeks. The teacher has offered the students the opportunity to bring in a video game system and play for a bit at the beginning of the class a game that relates to either of these wars. I think this is a great way to get the students engaged in the lesson by applying it to an activity that they would enjoy. They are making video games a learning experience, and relating to kids which I think is a massive plus. I personally think this is an amazing idea for two reasons: 1) It is getting the interest of students who normally wouldn’t engage in a classroom. 2)It’s

    Day 2 at VGXPO

    I had to be in Philadelphia by one o’clock to make the showing of the film Moral Kombat. On the train I was thinking that I might not make it in time but I did get there twenty minutes early and I was glad to be there. Everything was great until I figured out that I did not know where the conference rooms were. So after some searching I found the room but they hadn’t filled up enough and decided to postpone the show for thirty minutes. Though I was disappointed I decided that there was a lot to do in thirty minutes seeing as I was not going to be there for the final day. So I decided to go back up to the show room just to see what was up there. The room was so much more busy and crazy than it was the previous night. There

    Casual Gaming news 11/7/2007

    Oh wow I’ve decided to do this just every Wednesday. It sounds possible this way. But I’m loaded with lots of things to tell you so let’s get this started: [b] Majesco establishes new casual division[/b]- Majesco who you may or may not know from the Cake Mania series has established a new casual games division in LA.

    When will women’s magazines catch up?

    Today is an a-typical Monday morning. And perhaps I should be thankful for that. I came in extra early to work for the time change and everything is humming quite nicely. But because of that, I have been able to update the site and catch up on Monday morning tech news. This morning on Reuters there is a video from the Stuff convention showcasing the coolest in gadgets. In conjunction they have a special magazine that showcases new gadgets. This is not what infuriates me. What makes me mad is where are the female magazines doing this? There are many female tech blogs and gadget sites run by women, why do magazines for women continue to ignore technology? Instead they stick to the same format of writing every month how women can please their man, or how you can lose those last 10 pounds. Marie Claire tries to write some
