Sick! Sick! Sick!

I’m at that stage where I can feel the flu coming on and I’m dreading it. I just have to stay healthy until Tuesday and then my papers will be written. Just ’till Tuesday.
On another note, over at Gamasutra, there is a new article entitled, “The Psychology Behind Games” that uses Mihály Csíkszentmihályi’s notion of flow. I wish I’d thought of that.
Of course I’m just kidding. I did write (link to rtf file) about it and it was a chapter in my Master’s thesis. While it seems obvious that it should be applied to developement of games rather than just analysis, I chose not to do so since that wasn’t my interest. It is interesting to see someone take that viewpoint on it. It certainly never hurts to have someone else write about Flow. Maybe sometime the idea will catch on.

    This evening on A&E…y’all might be interested in “Peter.” Hey BMY…what’s new?


    Renee and Peter (#7).

    The stories of two people who need the intervention of family and friends to save them from their addictions. Renee’s eating disorder has become so dangerous that it is threatening her health, marriage, finances, and even the custody of her two small children. And Peter is so addicted to video games that he identifies himself as the characters in the games he plays and refers to other characters as people he hangs out with.
