Win a Wii

The Norwegian Oil Industry Association has a website to encourage education within the oil and gas industry – and they’ve got a competition to win a Wii!!!
Roughly translated:

The new Nintendo console is very reminiscent of tools the oil industry has used for several yars. When geologists use their advanced 3D programs and virtual room to look for oil and gas – it’s just as first rate as any computer game design.

It’s only for those between 13 and 25 that can enter, though – so I’m out.

Kinaesthetic Mimicry in computer games

I can’t stress enough how unbelievably great Chris Bateman‘s blog is for anyone wishing to look into what games are!
He’s got a great post about Wii and Kinaesthetic Mimicry in video games! He’s so generous with sharing his knowledge, experience, thoughts and time! I know some readers of this blog are thinking about writing about games for their thesis – subscribe to the feeds of this blog – you’ll be so much richer for it!

Oh dear – I feel compelled to write a list now – seems unfair to just mention Only A Game – but my list is long – and that should be designated to another post, I think!

Please excuse my silence!

I’m in Singapore and having a great time! The week before that was just spent celebrating the fact that I finally handed in ‘the sucker’! So – my feeds are piling up – and I have so much I want to say that I’m about to explode! I feel uninformed and unsatisfied!!! Tomorrow I’m going to a secret shop to get some programs, then off to get some more toys for my darling nephews – because tomorrow night (round midnight) I’ll be on a plane to see them! I’ve started a blog – which I haven’t written in yet, about the trip – so I’ve decided to spend the afternoon at a restaurant watching the people going by – sipping wine (hey! I’m on holiday) – and away from my travel companions – and just blog my impressions! I’m sooooooo looking forward to it! But we’ll see what happens!

Did you know…Wii isn’t in Singapore yet?!!! It’s so weird! I need to figure out why – because my understanding of Singapore English is still kinda shaky so the shop keepers haven’t given me a good enough explanation (I end up just nodding my head understandingly). But it certainly is on the ‘to do’ list! And – well – I would love to go on – but I’m just soooooooooo tired!!! Need to sleep! But I certainly want some time to blog tomorrow! That would be lovely!
