Full Circle, Atari Flashback Beats Them All

  My son requested and received the Atari Flashback 3 for Christmas after listening to the many gaming stories I had as a child of the 80s. After ripping open the box and setting up the system, he paused and looked very confused. “What’s the matter?” I asked. “Umm, I don’t get it.” he responded. My son was confused by the lack of detailed graphics and sounds the games produced. They did not look anything […]

 At this year’s GDC, Tero Ojanpera of Nokia talked about the importance of social networking and distribution of gaming through mobile phones.  Ojanpera estimated by 2012, 40% of game revenues will be coming from players of emerging markets that do not have access to high end computer gear or broadband connectivity but will carry a mobile device.  These users’ online experience will be shaped by what can be delivered through their cell phones.  The expectation […]
