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 (; 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 or […]

You can leave Gaming, but you will always be a Gamer…

March 1, 2012/0/0/

I fondly remember a time in my life when computer games used to feature heavily in my day-to-day routine. If I wasn’t getting at least five hours a day in on Counterstrike or Unreal Tournament then I was probably either ill or on holiday. However, my last monster-kill streak has long since past and I […]

Reaction Timing

February 28, 2012/0/0/

Newton’s third law is a scientific favorite: “To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.”  This law is also the core of competitive gameplay. If I make a move, my opponent must respond in order to neutralize the value of my move. The victor is then the player that takes a step […]

Downforce is Everything. 1/2 (The “Accidental” Education Garnered From Games – Educators, Take Note)

January 28, 2012/0/0/

It was during the autumn of 1999 that I fell in love. She was beautiful, complex, tremendously high maintenance, and from the land of the rising sun. Her name was Gran Turismo, and our relationship was tumultuous, fiery, and a constant struggle for performance and power. Horsepower, that is. In a few short weeks, I […]

More Physics, More Skyrim

January 4, 2012/0/0/

After doing some further gameplay to explicitly test the physics of Skyrim, I felt the need to do some background on the physics engine at hand. The engine, which many of you have probably heard of before, is the Havok physics engine. This is a collision-based physics engine that focuses on the dynamic interaction between […]

The Physics of Skyrim

January 2, 2012/0/0/

The room is dark, musty, and strangely cold. You can’t quite figure out what it is that chills you, but the source must be here. As you reach out to feel the walls, you are startled by low-hanging moss. There is water in the air, meaning a source of water must be nearby. With a […]
