    First of all, I can’t imagine having the dedication to play one game file for 10 years.  After all, a couple hours of an Age of Empires or SimCity file is enough for me, and then I create a new one.  There’s something very appealing about continuously creating different versions of (perhaps not a utopian world) but a village or city laid out perfectly, in your own vision.  (But maybe that... more.

    Can you even begin to imagine how different your gaming experience would be if you were deaf?  Not only would you miss out on the music, voice acting, and sound effects, but in some cases, it would be impossible to understand what is going on in the game. Game developers translate and localize games for different countries around the world, but many developers are unaware (or unwilling) to acc... more.

    You know, the rating system for video game is the deciding factor for many children – whether they are allowed to play a game or even buy it. What do you really know about how these ratings are decided?  It’s a given that there are specific ratings for specific age ranges with associated reasons for the rating, but who decides what “comic mischief” is or what exceeds the teen rating fo... more.

    You can kiss those dreams for the announcement of next gen consoles at this year’s E3 good-bye.  Despite the lack of comment from Sony and Microsoft representatives, there were overt hints (oxymoron, I know) about upcoming consoles.  Even independent publishers came right out and said their demos featured games for next gen consoles. The “overt hints” to which I referred come from the t... more.

    While it is widely known that Japanese and American cultures are integral to modern video games, the influence of Norse mythology is often taken for granted. After all, what fantasy game doesn’t include references to some Norse deity or creatures derived from the ancestors of the Vikings?  Scandinavia is what I like to call “the forgotten Europe,” since people without ties to the region ... more.
  • Sexual Harassment and Online Gaming

    Sexual harassment has always sickened me, but I have to say, I have never encountered anything as bad as the many of the other hardcore female gamers.  (I also limited my online interactions for a reason, unfortunately.) This recent article includes extraordinarily colorful and offensive language by male gamers to female gamers online.  The article itself is difficult to read and reflects the... more.

    As more businesses move to the internet-based model, what do you see happening to the traditional store?  In the U.S., we saw the demolition of most Blockbuster movie rental stores, replaced instead by the simple and immensely efficient Netflix.  More and more stores are being replaced by their online counterparts.  Where does that leave even the most popular and profitable of store chains?  W... more.
