The JLR (as Jonathan Lee Riches© is known at Dreadnaught) has filed a lawsuit against Blizzard Entertainment. Here is his latest lawsuit:
Comes now the interveners, moves Jonathan Lee Riches d/b/a Gordon Gekko, Vincent Dragonetti, Steven Iaria, Mario Cassarino, moves this honorable court to intervene in this case as Plaintiffs under fed r. civ P rule 24(A)2 – as a matter of right, or under rule 24(B) – permissive intervention, as interverors have a intrest in this case against Blizzard Entertainment Inc and their World of Warcraft video games which caused Intervenors to commit federal crimes. World of Warcraft caused Riches mind to live in a virtual universe, where Riches explored the landscapes committing Identity theft and fighting cybermonster rival hackergangs. Riches was addicted to video games and lost touch with Reality because of defendants. This caused Riches to commit fraud to buy defendants video games. Riches chose World of Warcraft over working a legit job. I move for Amicus Cuaie, I can provide this court with my medical charts, credit and receipts of buying their video games with fraud. I have newly discovered evidence. I pray this court will grant Intervenors motion for relief.
For all of the JLR’s lawsuits.

As reported on Kotaku, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory intends to purchase 300 PlayStation 3 40GB gaming systems. The reason for the purchase is not clear, though the Air Force maintains it is for “conducting a technology assessment of certain cell processors.”
Apparently Air Force personnel are prohibited from viewing blogs, but playing a PlayStation is acceptable.

If you are about to go under for a surgical procedure and see you doctor playing Super Mario Galaxy on a Nintendo Wii, there is nothing to fear. Yo may just be just warming up for your upcoming procedure.
According to NewScientistTech, a new study shows that surgical residents performed better after playing the Wii.
To test how the Wii affected surgical skill, the researchers asked eight trainee doctors to play it for an hour before performing a virtual surgery. They used a training tool called ProMIS, which simulates a patient’s body in 3D and tracks the surgeon’s movements as they operate. They fed the movements to an algorithm which scores the virtual surgeon on a range of factors. Wii-playing residents scored 48 per cent higher on tool control and performance than those without the Wii warm-up.
So play Halo 3 and become a great doctor.

A recent study in Psychiatric Quarterly, by Christopher John Ferguson, reports on a meta-analytic review of studies, published since 1995, analyzing the effects of video game play. The Ferguson study concludes that the previous studies of video game violence provided no support for the hypothesis that violent video game playing is associated with higher aggression.
This recent study was quite unnecessary. Aggression and violence are not a product of video games, these attributes are part of the human condition. Take Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (Caligula) Continue reading
