The Evolving Games Audience, Save on medical bills! Barbie World?

A new week and Monday Madness has arrived!

Tech Love

The once perceived game market was the 18-35 male and it was always this demographics that was spoon fed to us. Check this out though, the new demographics  suggested in this Yahoo! article is anyone (no gender bias) 6 to 60 so it’s time to open up our focus as to where we direct our game titles…I mean great games will always be great but now we can open up the mindset as to approaching game concepts and design. Read on in the article but as opposed to the sports or shoot em up let’s add some spice! I mean how much fun was super gem fighter!  Don’t agree? Let me know what you think is a sweet game that isn’t all sports or shoot em up!

This has been going on for a while but the buzz word in the games industry that is ‘casual’ let’s see why this is becoming relevant and truer in this Yahoo! article. Expectations are high (20% of all sales which is double last year) what I don’t like about this article is their questioning the fun of the Wii, the Wii in the corner in 6 months? pffft. That’s when I have enough money to get one!

A great article on Facebook’s appeal due to its privacy but once one gets into the network does it all go anti-piracy?  It does get rather like that as the news feed shows all actions by all friends in your network…depends on how much you really care I guess. I’m enjoying it at the moment…so no qualms from my way………..so far(?)

Barbie’s Virtual World hits 3 million users! The article is amazed by the growth rate and wonders if it will be a greater force than Second Life….that is if growth rates are the same as they are now till November or January at the latest. Pretty full on if that does happen…

Wikipedia is the new news site king!  “In the past year, Wikipedia has had a flux of 20 million unique monthly visitors, making it far and away the top online news and info destination, according to Nielsen/NetRatings (Reuters).Wikipedia had 46.8 million visitors in May, up 72 percent from June of last year, making it the top site in the news and information category by a wide margin.” I love Wikipedia…how it guessed Benoit’s tragedy I have no idea.

SL court case, Transformer facts, Teach teens via Virtual Worlds, Drink Water!

Once again I am bogged with the real life, that is making my online life harder to maintain. So let’s get it started on this wonderful technically July the 4th hurray! woo!

Tech Love

So we embark on another Second Life case after a drought of news on them. What is it this time? It’s an alleged case of copyright infringement. It’s a rather X-rated case so if you’re 15 or younger avert your eyes! If not, please feel free to click away if you don’t get offended easily.

So you have no idea how to let your teen into the world of the birds and the bees, Racism and those with disabilities? Why not let the virtual worlds teach them? “The study found that the gaming actually enhanced their imagination and also allowed them to peer into other cultures they wouldn’t normally come in contact with” Rather true if you think about all the jibber jabber we do while pwning someone online.

So now to some Transformers related cool facts.

The 10 coolest fictional trucks…can you guess which one is number one before you click?

The 7 most useless Transformers, I don’t agree with number 7 damnit! He’s awesome and we can’t live without him! The other ones are just hilarious LOL please consider a read!

Lifestyle

Finally, 9 reasons as to why we should drink more water.

I know this is highly controversial and very machoistic guy stuff and I am sorry to the female crowd but I did find it on the net and it did make me laugh that these guys took the time to ruin their chances of getting laid ever again, unless it’s between themselves…which is well….priceless. LOL

priceless

Oh by the way…Vista is killing me…I must admit it does look nice though hehehe

Tech Love

Here’s a great article by Steve Rubel on the community online and the gluing together of the online to the offline. Or in easier wording my virtual life to my real life. It’s definitely an interesting read! It’s obviously got a nice focus on PR which brings the issues of online PR’s growing importance as another communication tool in our handy tool kits!

Oh and if you didn’t know already…THIS IS…SPARTA!!!!!!!!!!!

YouTube minimizes Engrish, eBay pwns Google, SL steppin’~ Johnny Depp WTF?!

Thugged out Thursdays are my fave~

Tech Love

Engrish is all around us,  but we should allow for all Engrish users to not have to use Engrish but go for their native tongue. That’s why yesterday Flickr added 7 languages but today Youtube plans to expand its language base also! French and Mandarin are the languages expressed in the article so far…lookout for more…

eBay pwns the crap out of Google…the article says it all.

We have 2 new entries to Second Life today…and they are…Beverage maker Diageo and Japanese politician Kan Suzuki who hopes to get re-elected.

Like to think of yourself as a bit of a writer? Well here’s a way to get published for $19! I’ll probably give myself  around 6 months before I publish my  literature…LOL

Lifestyle

Here’re some shaving tips which I also needed to know…hehe

THIS IS THE BEST WTF?! I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! WATCH AND LEARN!! JOHNNY DEPP ON JAPANESE TV HAHAHAHA OH  MY HUMOUR OVERLOAD!!!

Enjoy!
