The last decade has brought a new age of behavior, gaming, culture, and nuances to our grasp of technology. Twelve years ago tabletop gaming was still thought of as satanistic, now hundreds of thousands of people in all social circles partake in electronic entertainment originally based on works such as Dungeons and Dragons or Lord of the Rings. As human beings we have the mental capacity to train our minds subconsciously to learn, perform, and practice different tasks of variant difficulty. You may know them as "habits".
Humanity as a whole has problems adapting fully without negative reinforcement. You may of seen evidence in your personal life reflecting this. Without the realization that our behavior is incorrect you cannot make the required mental adjustments in order to refine your behavior. This ties in with a theory on the younger generations. Specifically their methods of behavior during online games. I have named this mental condition "Popular Si

Another day of E3, another batch of photos. this group isn't as big as the previous one, mostly because I was spending a lot of time maneuvering myself through humongous crowds from meeting to meeting. There should still be some worthwhile shots for you to peruse through. Enjoy, and check back once again tomorrow for the final batch! After which I will probably be spending the next few days sleeping.

Internet vigilante group, known collectively as Anonymous, has just recently (as in right as I was originally writing this up) attacked their newest target, that being Sony Entertainment.
In a press release posted on their website, the group deliberately threatens the large corporation for their recent legal actions targeting two hackers, George 'Geohot' Hotz and Alexander “Graf_Chokolo” E

|It looks like NCsoft will be literally taking the kid gloves off in terms of its focus in the MMO genre. In an interview conducted by Kotaku with NC West president of publishing David Reid, he mentioned that they will be redoubling their efforts on large, triple-A MMO titles from now on.|
The new mindset explained by Reid coincides with the company's recent shift in management teams and restructuring. He was quoted having said:
This transition is really about ratifying a completely dedicated business to the triple-A titles. We would consider ourselves in the class of five-ish companies in the world that can be successful in this market. We are a leader here and we are doubling down in those efforts.
He also added that: "If you are successful in this business, you are fabulously successful". As such, he mentioned that NCsoft will be moving away from some of its "lighter" titles such as Dungeon Runners, although he refused to comment whether this meant the end of the light-hearted, free-to-play MMO game.
Reid cited their plans on making a deal with Sony to create several online games for the PlayStation 3. He also gave a nod in the direction of Electronic Arts, a onc

1. Heavy Rain (Sony, PS3), by Quantic Dream published by Sony: I signed my life away to promise I wouldn't reveal any details about this game. In fact I'm told Sony ninjas will hit me with poison shurikens before I can type the words to describe it, so I will simply say it's by far the most impressive thing I saw at E3. The first video below came out two years ago as a tech demo of Quantic Dream's animation system. The second video shows off what their system is capable of today. This isn't coming for a while yet but looks like it's going to be extremely interesting.
2. Fallout 3 (Bethesda Softworks, 360, PC, PS3): If The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion was a little too orcs 'n swords for your taste (it was for mine), this revival of the classic post-apocalyptic RPG franchise will give you a chance to experience Bethesda's brand of open-world hotness. Born in an underground fallout shelter, you step outside for the first time as an adult -- into a world that's been picking up the pieces of nuclear holocaust for decades.
3. Left 4 Dead (Valve/EA, 360, PC): We've seen a zombie or two in the years we've spent playing games, but we've never seem them like this. Fast and brutal, the

According to gamesindustry.biz, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced at his keynote speech at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival this morning that the company is developing a game in which user-created content will be the primary focus. As part of a plan to open the industry up to new consumers, Ubisoft plans to shine the spotlight on the user and reward them with incentives for their creative work.
"The goal is really to make sure our consumers become creators," said Guillemot.
"We need to put gamers in the spotlight and recognize their creativity and make sure that our consumers are the stars.
"We are making sure that the consumer is rewarded for his creativity and that he is judged by the community, and these elements will encourage this person to continue his creativity. And once he knows how to use our tools he will create more."

The comic re-imagined the mythological Indian tale of Ramayana in a futuristic realm, and the game will feature characters based on the comic, Sony and Virgin said.
"Virgin Comics approached us with a portfolio of amazing comic properties based on Indian lore," said SOE president John Smedley. "We particularly love Ramayan 3392 A.D., as we feel Virgin Comics' telling of The Ramayana is particularly gripping, graphically brilliant and lends itself extremely well to an MMO.
The exclusive multi-year license will be developed and published by SOE with Virgin Comics acting as creative consultant.
"In a world increasingly dominated with games influenced by a western Tolkien mythos, Ramayan will offer gamers a chance to experience a whole new universe of characters and archetypes derived from one of the oldest cultures on Earth," said Sharad Devarajan, co-founder and CEO of Virgin Comics.
Sony said the game will be developed "initially" for the PC but did not disclose a timeframe for its release.

USA Today, who purports to have the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States, published a story today discussing Sony's fall from an almost monopolistic first place with the PlayStation 2 to less-than-stellar sales with the PlayStation 3.
Drawing from the February NPD figures, writer Mike Snider places Sony in third place with 127,000 in PS3 unit sales, behind home consoles Xbox 360 (228,000) and Nintendo Wii (335,000). This is in addition to anecdotal evidence that the PlayStation 3 is easily available in stores while the Wii is still hard to find. Total Wii sales in the U.S. are estimated to 1.9 million while Sony has 1.1 million.
Newsweek's N'Gai Croal chimes in on reasons for Sony's ranking, including price, software lineup and negative press. Of course, early runnings mean nothing long-term, and the PlayStation 3 could easily pick up steam following release of heavy-hitting games, PS Home and a possible price drop. Still, when you got one of the biggest newspapers giving less-than-complimentary status reports it can't be good for business.
