ImageThe best year in the recent video-gaming history comes to an end and that's reason enough to start a poll. I haven't managed to play all the games on that list, which should be testament enough to how filled with gaming-joy this year was. Especially the last weeks have been cram-full of great games, making the holiday-season a mine-field of purchase-choices for gamers worldwide.

Mission statement

Everything i know i learned from star trek. Alas, a similar title was already used for some nerd's book so i had to go with "mission statement". I always liked how the intro of the original series had that long speech about the coming adventures of the enterprise and its five year journey, which - ironically - turned out to be only two years after all. I hope this website will have a longer life-span, but since it is my first array into the world of writing endeavours, i m not sure where the journey will take me and this website. The site still needs some finishing touches, so it doesnt also look like the first set of enterprise =)

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...

Newsflash

You know you have to upgrade, when at the same day a program tells you your CPU is to shitty and a new game plainly refuses to start on your pimped-out, watercooled Athlon XP. My system still runs most recent games with decent speeds and with comparably good graphic settings. But it cant hide the fact, that it is still based on an nforce2 chip with an Athlon XP as a CPU. Said CPU lacks SSE2, which seems to be mandatory for certain video-editing programs nowadays (and i should have known since i ran into the same problem at university with the smaller brothers of my CPU and Adobe Premiere [there i said it! Screw you, hidden advertisement schemes]) and may be adverse to performance in any of the latest software offerings on the planet. It's still a fast and rocksolid system, so i ll keep it for music-production in my secondary system, which incidently is an old phillips tube-radio, modded into a pc, so it will be more than fitting there.

Still, it's strange to see an industry force people to switch to newer hardware because they are optimizing their programs to certain computational contraints (e.g. are too lazy to provide backward compatibility). But considering how cheap new hardware is at the moment and how powerful a system needs to be to run the latest games and / or do video-encoding i'm not going to complain. As long as my tax-returns are big enough to ensure a decent upgrade-path, i m a happy camper =)
