headerTo celebrate the launch of thier Steam platform on Mac, Valve is giving away the game Portal (that runs on both Mac and PC) for free!  But hurry, they are only giving it away until 5/24/2010.  If you already have a Steam account, you can get the game directly from the store.  If you don't already have a Steam account, you can get the game you can access it here
If you are not familiar with Portal, here is a description from the SteamPowered website:

Portal™ is a new single player game from Valve. Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay.

The game is designed to change the way players approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment; similar to how Half-Life® 2's Gravity Gun innovated new ways to leverage an object in any given situation.

Players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals to maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space.

 

Educational Gaming - Immune Attack

E-mail Print PDF

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) has released a new educational tool called Immune Attack.  It was developed jointly by FAS, University of Southern California, Brown University, and Escape Hatch Entertainment.  This is essentially a Third Person Shooter video game that teaches the player about immunology.  According to the game's site, "You must navigate a nanobot through a 3D environment of blood vessels and connective tissue in an attempt to save an ailing patient by retraining her non-functional immune cells.  Along the way, you will learn about the biological processes that enable macrophages and neutrophils – white blood cells – to detect and fight infections."  Sounds like a pretty cool way for middle and high school students to learn about science.  Much more interactive than the text books of my day!  The game is free of course and available at www.immuneattack.org

 

Useful World of Warcraft Add-ons

E-mail Print PDF

I have been playing World of Warcraft (WoW) since I recieved it as a gift for Christmas. It is definitely a well designed game with many intricacies.  However, as with any game there are things that could be improved.  This is where WoW Addons come into play.  Addons tweak or change the game's user interface (UI) to improve your gaming experience.  According to Blizzard's policy, UI addons are acceptable as long as they follow a few basic rules.  Below are a few of the addons I have found extremely useful and links to download them.  These addons are all available from the Curse.com website.  Personally, I do not use the Curse client becuase I have read mixed reviews about it.  The Curse website also offers all the addons as a separate download  for manual install (you just unzip the folder and dump it in your AddOns directory (C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns if using Vista or Windows 7). 

World of Warcraft 300x250
  1. Quest Helper - This addon is useful for anyone, as it basically provides on-screen GPS directions to completing your quests.  Saves time looking at the map and can help you optimize your time. 
  2. Auctioneer - This addon is useful for anyone who posts items in the Auction House.  It helps you research selling prices and post items more efficiently.
  3. Postal - This addon is also useful for anyone.  It gives some nice address book like functionality to sending mail and also a helpful "open all items" button for taking all message attachments at once.
  4. Omen - This addon could be useful for many classes, but a mage especially.  It provides feedback on your threat level compared to other party members so you can avoid getting aggro from a big boss.
  5. Healbot - This addon is probably most useful to healers, but could assist other spellcasters as well.  It allows you to monitor and efficiently target your party or raid group for healing/buffs/curse removals.
