November 17, 2013/0/0/

So the question that I pose is: do real-time achieving games aid your […]

Cell Command

January 30, 2013/0/0/

Just learned about an educational science game called Cell Command. You start out clicking on codons to make amino acids, then you’re in a mitochondrion adding P to ADP, and pretty soon you’re helping the cell be selective about what it allows through its membranes.

The Art of Blowing Cartridges

November 10, 2012/0/0/

I grew up in an era of video game cartridges – large, plastic, square holders for prized video game technology chips. They were great as a result of their additive effect to the overall experience of trying to operate and play an early console such as Nintendo or Super Nintendo (among others). I’m sure that […]

August 6, 2012/0/0/

Last year when I got my hands on a copy of Healing Blade, I tore open the box full of anticipation. Cool artwork! And a science theme! Games about science have been an interest of mine for some time. Games are fun and science is fascinating. Combine the two and you can potentially get quite […]

Upward Mobility of MOBA Games

June 26, 2012/0/0/

The current craze in gaming is the MOBA game, short for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. The MOBA plays like the original Warcraft games, especially since the first and most prominent MOBA came out of a Warcraft 3 mod. For those of you loving readers that are unfamiliar with Warcraft, I’m sure you’ve heard of Street […]
