the game teaches the principles of microeconomics... learn to deal with economic principles that range from scarcity to sustainable growth... subjects that go well beyond economics -- such as biology, history and anthropology... Students play the game on their own schedule -- learning when and where they choose
it's like Civilization, online!

Most mmogs could qualifiy as college level courses in Sociology and Criminal Psychology.

Jim Ward shrieks hysterically:

- the business model does not work! (extortion no worky no more? )
- the industry's been flat for 6 years! (you mean "stable"? )
- we're selling games to the same people! (u mean "repeat customers"? )

For the luv of all that is holey, Think Of The Revenue Model! THINK OF THE REVENUE MODEL!
WE HAVE NO BACK END REVENUE STREAM!!!
OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

given Microsoft's desire to integrate various platforms
they did say that it was possible to interact with Xbox players in games too
eenteresting, was talking with a guy a few days ago from Namco US who mentioned that plans are underway to acoomodate both xbox and pc players in the same game. didn't think to press him for more info on the point. doh!

edit: 360 + PC would make for 1 HUGE player base for say... a mmog, or an online RTS like maybe... WARHAMMER?

Native my ass. We're all Africans.
hm, it wasn't really "Africa" as we know it today til after the tectonic plates stopped shifting, land bridges submerged, magnetic poles flipped around again, etc. etc., by which time homo sapiens may/may not already have migrated all over the place.

More correct (and fantasy game world Fun! ) to say we're all Native Pangeans.

hm, too bad bootable games aren't feasible any more, way too much work to code a "bootstrap loader" these days i spose, but sure would be nice to be able to -completely- bypass Windows or any other OS; just insert a dvd, power up and have the game completely take over the hardware.

well of course the Apple II was the greatest in terms of influence, but there was also Commodore Pet (green screen babee! ), and the ancient S-100 bus based computers that early hobbyists luved to fiddle with.

Thompson actually came off sounding more intelligent
EXACTLY.
G4 ("By Retards, For Retards") is an example of why guys like Jack Thompson (or Rush Limbaugh or Pat Robertson or James Dobson or Bill O'Reilly) can even exist.

In our lowest common denominator / room temperature IQ society, Thompson (and other extremeists with a political Agenda) comes off looking like a genius and sounds perfectly reasonable to the middle america numbskulls who pay attention to this bs.

Maybe they are getting rid of the extra crap/noise/clutter that has been associated with E3.
and replacing it with the extra crap/noise/clutter that has long been associated with CES???

All they've done is replace the E3 Bacchanalia with a CES Bacchanalia. go figure.
Bacchanalia:
1. The ancient Roman festival in honor of Bacchus.
2. A riotous, boisterous, or drunken festivity; a revel

Speaking of the good ol days of computer gaming festivals,
i remember attending the 3rd West Coast Computer Faire in San Fran, back when Robin Williams used to wander around looking at all the games. good times.

edit: er, maybe it was the 2nd Faire in San Jose, seeing as how the 3rd was in LA. Not quite sure since all the brain cells from that time have gone into fuzzy logic mode.

Gee, 30% of Americans don't know what year the WTC and Pentagon attacks took place.
I wouldn't be surprised if that % included Presidente Shrub.

congratulations, all by yourself you've discovered the fundamental -operating- principle underlying all of Corporate Capitalism. (the fundamental -motivating- principle is greed; the -enabler- is Laissez Faire)
