ImageAfter a long period of trying to discuss the peculiarities of the gaming world with colleagues in the field of psychology, it dawned on me, that there aren't many gamers in my profession. Scientific research into gaming as a cultural phenomenon is also often somewhat lacking, especially in times when politicians need fast and easy answers to the next school-shooting - usually not involving much reasoning or unbiased thought-processes...
This is topped off by an overabundance of review-sites that seem to mechanically play through games and derive an arbitrary number at the end of their sleepwalking through the experience, lest their sponsors be unhappy.
It's not only the bad stuffings that finally made me create this page, but also the big turkey that is the ever growing gaming-industry, that has given me many years of joy and has filled me with a deep enthusiasm about the psychology of gaming and its underlying systematics of challenge and gratification.

Newsflash

The more powerful the hardware has become the more we are encountering problems with heat and the discipation thereof. So when i read the following news i was pretty hyped about it, because innovation in the field of cooling like water- or phaseshift-cooling often is only coming at a premium price and with enthusiast hardware. Heatpipes and bigger-sized heatspreaders are becoming somewhat more mainstream nowadays as alot of people rather want to have silent cooling. What MSI has published now looks like a dream come true with its Sterling-Engine solution. It may not be the most efficient for the hottest hardware, but it surely will help reduce costs and noise in alot of places. Hooray for cool innovations like that, even if it still has to be seen, if it's a reliable and cost-effective solution.
