Some of you (maybe a few, anyway) may have noticed that I haven't been around much recently, other than leaving a few comments here and there on other blogs.
I wasn't going to do a blog today. I did my weekly one-hit wonder post over on my other blog and decided afterward that I wanted to play games today instead. I fired up my NCAA Football 11 Iowa State dynasty and was ready to go! I'm at the end of the 2011 season and didn't have time to advance from Bowl Week to the End of Season week when I played last night.
So I see that the University of Florida has launched a resource management course using Starcraft, making students play the game to learn about, I guess, resource management (or something). And, of course, there was Portal being required at Wabash College in one of their orientation courses.
That's basically what Obsidian is saying.
One of the most misunderstood concepts I've ever seen is the freedom of speech granted by the U.S. Constitution.
Is it bad to play games for...3 hours a night? Ten hours a week?
I've been a member of the GI Online community for almost three months now, and it's been a wonderful experience. Everybody's been so welcoming and nice, and very gracious in their compliments when they read my stuff. Being Member-Herded in Saint's latest blog just kind of cemented that honour. It's always nice to be included in the "in" crowd, and having my name put in with the likes of Saint, Euphoric, Demon, and so many others when "good" blogs are discussed.
Saw Dan Ryckert's article about UNICO National protesting against Mafia II and a couple of things came to mind.
Any of you who follow FPS games already know that the new Medal of Honor game takes place in Afghanistan during the 2001 invasion.
Wow, there have been a lot of super-serious blogs in the last 24 hours. I love that, especially that people feel comfortable enough with us to put themselves out there like that.
Say you are one of my Twitter followers (link's on my page!) or friends with me on Facebook. Do you really care what trophy I just unlocked while playing Uncharted 2? Do you want to see an announcement every time I blow somebody off the road in Blur?
