A game plan for playing games
A little humor from last week's gamercat. I think I went through the 'must play every game' phase when I was in middle school, I've slowly paired it down to the 'I only have so much time, what do I want to play?' :-) The urge to play (or at least try) them all though is still there :)

Prepare to Meet Thy Doom: And More True Gaming Stories by David KushnerMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This was an interesting collection of short stories on video games. It is by no means comprehensive, but it was interesting to read nevertheless. It's a good, short, read for people interested in video games and how they impact (and are impacted by) society. I think this book spent a little too
Star Trek Continues E11 "To Boldly Go: Part II"
Well, the finale of Star Trek Continues is here. I really wish that this series had had a handful more episodes before this grand finale - which ties in TOS with the movies, but oh well...axanar ;-) . The finale was actually quite good.

Sev TNG: More technobabble

A little humor from last week's Nerdrage. Mario's most recent enemy seems very...pedestrian :-)
Not exactly what I was looking for...database
It's been a very reading-heavy few weekends. I've been trying to go through the massive amount of articles that I downloaded for my dissertation proposal so I can start writing the final section (the lit review) that's been on my mind since the summer. I was looking for an article on one of the Sage databases, and I thought that an author & keyword combination would do its magic (especially
This past week I was reminded of Darren Hayes and the song Pop!ular. Not sure what reminded me of it, definitely some random conversationalist at work, but I don't recall how exactly this fits in. I think it was the white noise beat that someone had in the office.
Review: Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture
Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture by David KushnerMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting book about the people and the company that brought you Doom and Wolfenstein 3D. As a kid I was introduced to these through shareware disks bought at the local Staples office store. It's interesting to hear what happened both before and after my introduction to
Sev TNG: Fire at will!
LOL... I don't know how many times, in how many iterations I've heard this joke :-)(original archive here)
