Bit of a strange day today. Writing about computer games, most gamers would think, is pretty easy, no? Well, when you write on forums about it, then yes, I guess it is. Writing about the games coming out, your favourite way of playing, what’ll you’ll do in it and so on and so forth. When it comes to writing about it as a piece for your assignment for college, things tend to go a different way entirely… (more…)


So, women really do want the fellas who’ve been taken?

While reading an interesting brief article on the difference in how the sexual psychology of how male and female minds work in a back copy of a Science/Technology magazine – which I promise was just about the science, I came to realise something.

I know gaming has come a long way, its changing day to day, but tell me What do the Children Play?

I know that seems a strange question because at this time it seems a lot of games are coming out and they soon might be recognized as a true art form. If you look more closely though at the kind of games we are championing or the major games that are being bought that question should be asked more then ever. (more…)
