News from PC Magazine:
The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition ($ 169 direct) is a video capture device designed specifically to grab game footage for reviews, guides, Let’s Play videos, and, well, good old fun. This add-on box boasts both HDMI and component video inputs and can capture video from all three major video game consoles, and most devices with a component video output. While easy to use, the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition suffers from the limitations of HDMI encryption, and you’ll need to compromise to record PlayStation 3 game footage.

Mojang’s Minecraft has whipped PC gamers up into a mad frenzy over the last year and a bit.
While keyboard warriors have been enjoying making elaborate, awe-inspiring constructions, battling creepers in the dead of night and trolling fellow crafters, console owners have had to wait patiently for the arrival of 4J Studios’ Xbox 360 Edition. Well, the wait is over, and the game is great. Rejoice!
Here’s what we said in our Minecraft: Xbox 360 review: “Whether you’re mining, crafting, building, or fighting – either alone, or with friends – there’s nothing quite like Minecraft. An accomplished, streamlined port that’s a perfect fit for Xbox 360.” We gave it an impressive 9.0.

News from KCRG:CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – For months state leaders have debated on what Iowa should be doing to reform education. Lawmakers have tried to find a plan that will improve student learning and college preparation. But some Eastern Iowa schools have started offering specialized classes that cater to the interests of students.
At Cedar Rapids Washington, Jefferson and Kennedy, one business class is doing just that. It’s called “Video Game Marketing and Design” and it has students piling into the classroom to learn more. It could be because for an hour a day, class work seems less of a task and more like entertainment. “As soon as I heard there was a game development class, I just really wanted to get into that,” said Bryce Korazio, a Sophomore at Cedar Rapids Washington. The class had such a strong interest, the schools ended up offering it at more times than they originally planned.
The title of the class is what drew many students in. “I basically did it for the video game aspect because I love playing video games but the advertising aspect kind of also appealed to me,” said Chase Deshaw, a Freshman at Cedar Rapids Washington. But once learning was underway many realized it was……………. continues on KCRG

News from Good Gear Guide:
Video game technology is evolving at a rapid pace, and if there is one genre where developers are constantly finding ways to get their games to look more realistic, it is racing. Our top five choices in this article represent racing games that set a new benchmark in video game graphics when they were originally released.
No. 5: Mario Kart (Super Nintendo)
The game: Nintendo took the characters from its Super Mario Bros. platforming franchise and transposed them into a go-cart setting with Super Mario Kart. One of eight characters from the Super Mario Bros. series can be selected, each one with differing capabilities. Players race against computer controlled characters in various racing cups using offensive and speed boosting power-ups to gain an advantage.
The fame: Released in 1992 when 3D game graphics were in their infancy, Super Mario Kart wowed audiences with its use of Mode 7, a texture mapping technology that enabled a plane to be rotated and scaled freely for a pseudo three-dimensional effect…………….. continues on Good Gear Guide
