October 4, 2012/0/0/

I got an ipad this year and one of the first things I did was start searching for science and medicine themed games. The main game that seems to be making waves is a game called Plague Inc., by Ndemic Creations, that was inspired by Pandemic 2.5., by Dark Realm Studios. And I would be […]

October 1, 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 […]

Some of the things that we ponder here from time to time at NCL are: a) Where are we now? b) Where are we going? c) Is this stuff worth fighting for? These kinds of questions should pepper the mind of anyone engaged in creative projects.  It is so easy to become mired in the insanity […]

Gamers Get Girls

July 22, 2012/0/0/

A while ago, I received a unique and interesting graphic called “Gamers Get Girls” that can be accessed at (http://www.onlineuniversity.net/gamers-get-girls/); also shown below. The graphic is designed in an elegant retro-bit-style fashion, and easily conveys a proposal of how online gaming connects people romantically and is more efficacious than dating sites such as Match.com or […]
