ThinkGeek :: Grow Your Own 1up Mushroom Kit
Topic: Games 6:35 pm EST, Nov 20, 2006

Deep in the basement of an ancient house in Sonobe (tucked in the fields of Kyoto, Japan), an amazing discovery has been made: real 1up Mushrooms.

McDonald's Videogame
Topic: Games 3:25 pm EST, Feb 21, 2006

In this game you take land from poor people, grow cows on it, process it in a factory, add hormones, sell it in your stores, fight off anti-globalization protestors, bribe government officials, and profit!

Its strangely addictive. I think I should open a franchise.

CSI: Miama tonight is based on GTA
Topic: Games 5:02 pm EST, Nov 21, 2005

Delko witnesses a bank robbery and the CSIs soon discover that the culprits are playing out the action from the videogame "Urban Hellraisers" on the streets of Miami. As they score points for each crime committed, the CSIs must discover what consists of getting to the next level in the game in order to stop the culprits before they strike again.

On the one hand, I think this will be a fun episode. On the other hand...

U: Oh my god that sucked so much. I'm terribly sorry for anyone who bothered to watch it based on my recommendation.

A Miami resident has bought a virtual space station for $100,000 and wants to turn it into a cross between Jurassic Park and a disco.

Whoa. Turn your habit into cash. - Virtual property yields $100,000 - Nov 10, 2005

Wired Dragon*Con Review
Topic: Games 2:41 pm EDT, Sep  7, 2005

Eventually the road filled with mysterious beings coated in sparkles and green paint, their gossamer wings floating in humid Southern air. They were followed by a troupe of mournful vampires, a couple of Spider-Mans, Aeon Flux, Superman, a fleet of Klingons on motorcycles, a mass of Harry Potters, assorted characters from Babylon 5 and of course an entire phalanx of stormtroopers marching more or less in formation behind a gaggle of Princess Leias.

I really haven't had time to write up my own comments from DragonCon, but it was a really excellent weekend. Its an intersection between people who make things like role playing games and people who make things like space elevators. Its where the dreamers meet, and you can grasp onto outlandish ideas that will one day be considered everyday things.

Proof that british people have a strange sense of fun
Topic: Games 5:31 pm EDT, Jun 10, 2005

This video is a little slow to start up, but worth the wait. Watch it full screen, because you won't believe your eyes otherwise.

Basically, some people have come up with one of the scariest arcade games ever, and are simply waiting for new victims, er players, to step and stick in some coins.

Speculative Search Game (Google Game)
Topic: Games 11:53 pm EST, Jan  3, 2005

From the web page:

"Have you found a really neat web site that does not rank highly on Google yet? Sure, there are many ways that you could tell other people about it (e.g., add a link to it from your web page, give it a "thumbs up" on StumbleUpon, mention it in a newsgroup, etc).

But why not make such a recommendation as part of a game where your score will depend on the actual Google ranking achieved by the site in the future? Why not find out who is the very best at predicting which sites people will like and that will rank higher on Google as a result?

And why not also make predictions about web sites whose Google ranking will likely go down in the future?

The Speculative Search Game allows you to make such predictions in a competitive environment."

3-Dimensional Go!
Topic: Games 4:17 pm EST, Nov 19, 2004

As if go wasn't complex enough. I've played it a few times. I suck. I'd like to get good at it but I require an opponent who is actually interested in learning with me over time and regular playing. Add a third dimension, and you can forget it. Go on a mobius strip. You people are nuts.
