    Need a place to stash your Wiimotes when you’re not playing? Check out Brando’s [url=http://videogame.brando.com.hk/prod_detail.php?prod_id=00483]WeDock[/url].

    Interview with Jenny gheduzzi

    [img]http://a459.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/01147/85/42/1147792458_l.jpg[/img] How long have you been an artist and what inspired you to pursue this career? What in your opinion was your first big break? What inspired you to get involved with the Hannah Montana “Music Jam” DS project? As character designer and concept artist for the game did you have any prior experience? What was that experience like and what would be your advice to any artist interested in getting involved with the gaming industry? How much involvement do you have in the gaming industry/community?

    Imagine – Babies! for the DS

    I saw this announcement from Ubisoft first at Kotaku, and thought surely it couldn’t be true. Unfortunately, for girl gamers everywhere, it is true. Ubisoft has announced their new line of Imagine games for the DS, one of which includes, Babies. According to a senior marketing director at Ubisoft, Helene Juguet, this is just what all young girl gamers want! Now, sure, these Imagine games are meant for young girls – however, it’s a pretty big generalization to assume that girls between 6 and 14 have the same interests in gaming. 6 to 14?! You know, that’s a pretty large gap between ages. What I liked as a six-year-old was not the same thing I was interested in at 14. And I don’t even want to think about what Imagine Babies might be suggesting about Teen Pregnancy…. So, who’s bright idea at Ubisoft was this? Let’s teach girls how to

    Apple press conference today: iMac news

    Apple held a press conference today where they announced new prices for it’s iMac brand. This helps to position it for all the back to school sales that should be happening this month. The new iMacs will have thinner aluminum casings have 20 and 24 inch displays and will cost $1,199 to $1799 depending on configurations. The cost of the 24 inch iMac has dropped by $200. Personally, I recommend the Macbook pro for anyone looking for a laptop, but this might be a great solution for those that like to have a desktop. The other announcement was that Apple is adding a software “button” of the iPhone that allows users to upload photos taken with the built-in camera to .Mac. Follow

    Want to be the Legendary Hero?

    Are you the ultimate Zelda fan? Do you have it all? The games, the figures, the cosplay costume, the box set of the cartoon. We’ll excuse me Princess; you’ve got nothing till you have your Wii attachment. A company called Camy International has releases a Wii attachment to capitalize on the popularity of the Wii’s Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. This attachment is called the Hero Pack and prices around 20 dollars. The Wii-mote is inserted into the handle of the master sword. (The blade is foam so it’s safe to be swinging around) and the nunchuck is inserted into the handle of the Hylian Sheild. This is for the ultimate Zelda fan, but I wonder how events like fishing would work with the attachment. For a complete review of the attachment hit up IGN http://gear.ign.com/articles/810/810918p1.html Follow

    Take your dating on the road

    Tired of waiting to get home to see if you have any emails from Match.com? Well now you can take your dating on the road. MatchMobile will be launching in the US, UK and Canada. You’ll be able to answer emails from other Match.com subscribers and search for potential matches from your cell. Because the search for Mr. or Mrs. Right should never end right? But this also means a higher frequency of messages too. Getting messages on the phone and to be able to answer them ($5 per month more) will allow members to continue talking. Even when they should be working. Personally, I found Match to only give creepy results. I think I met two good guys through Match. And met a whole handful of liars. But this does bring about a new way to find your “match”. Now we have to figure out a block or ignore
