Jason and Mike are back in full swing. I don’t know what we’re swinging, but, hey, at least we have our podcast out the same weekend we recorded it! Grab your favorite drink, sit back, and listen to us pontificate. (No, that’s not a dirty word.)
Our Sweet Sixteen episode has us pondering another podcast, as if we haven’t bitten off more than we can chew already. We talk about Chinese game manufacturing, virtual table tops, and Skynet. And we have our Game Pick of the Week!
- Jason has gotten regular hours at his job that pays bills, which he thinks means more content on our website! Mike isn’t convinced.
- Mike announced “Dice Guys After Dark” to get some immature, political, angry ranty stuff out of their systems. It probably won’t happen, but, hey, why not dream aloud?
- The Globe and Mail reports on a Vancouver man, Michael Lee, who has set up a successful board game manufacturing business in China: Panda Game Manufacturing.
- French company ePawn showed its Arena tabletop gaming touchscreen at CES 2012 about a week ago. The $400 26″ touch screen takes input from many devices, tracks pawns and such placed on it, and allows for an interactive gaming experience. Read more at their website!
- Joshuha Owen is creating a virtual tabletop for role play gaming for Google+ Hangouts. Check him out at G+ or his blog at TabletopForge.Com!
- SCIENCE! Scientists apparently donot watch movies or just don’t care. They’re intent on building robots that will one day rule over us. This week’s entry: a computer AI that knew nothing at all about numbers has taught itself basic math sense. The story came from TechCrunch. Your robot master will come from Skynet.
- Should you let your children win games? How much? When do you stop? Apparently Sherrie Gardner Howell thinks you always let them win. Her article at KnoxNews.Com seems to say that, anyway. We give our take, and are probably just as full of it. So tell us what you think in comments below!
