Wicked Lasers took the direct blue laser diode components and made the world's first 445nm direct blue diode laser, the Arctic."

With burly hardware (for a handheld) and a gorgeous screen, it just begs to play homebrew, and lots of PSP owners have cracked their devices to do just that. Unfortunately, Sony has had other plans for their handheld, and has released dozens of firmware updates and several hardware revisions to make it harder to hack the PSPs handheld. As such, there’s no one hack that works on all PSP, and in fact some PSPs are completely unhackable. There is, however, one fairly easy method that works on most consoles, which is what we’ll illustrate in this article.

Valve’s Gabe Newell discusses the frontiers of gaming, from wearable technology to “tongue controllers” Gabe Newell (pictured top right) is the chief executive and co-founder of Valve, the award-winning game publisher and creator of the Steam digital distribution service for games. He is one of the visionaries of the game business, and his predictions carry a lot of weight. Plenty of speculation surrounds the odd projects that Valve undertakes, and Newell took some time yesterday to explain some of them and talk about the cool and weird things coming in the future. Ed Fries (pictured top left), the former head of Microsoft Game Studios, interviewed Newell at a reception that Covert & Co., Google Ventures, and Perkins Coie sponsored at the Casual Connect game conference in Seattle. Here’s an edited transcript of their interview.

Video Games Rot Your Brain, Study Finds From the "Gee, who'd have guessed it?" department this morning comes an official report that video-game systems in dorm rooms equate to less study time and lower grade-point averages. In a recent study conducted at the University of Western Ontario, it was found that the mere presence of a game console in the rooms of first-year students led to 40 minutes less time spent studying per day, which resulted in GPAs .241 points lower on average. The study wasn't actually intended to analyze the impact of video games on student performance, but was instead trying to correlate study time to overall GPA. Students participating in the research tracked their time studying, sleeping, partying, working, gaming and doing other student-ly things. That time was then compared to their test scores, with the overall finding being that (surprise, surprise) more studying equates to higher grades.

Download Quest for Glory - So you want to be a Hero Quest For Glory I: So You Want To Be A Hero is a lovely adventure game written by Sierra in 1989. It is the first of the Quest For Glory games, and in my opinion, it is the best. You have just arrived in the town of Spielburg, eager to prove yourself a hero. Well luckily for you, Spielburg is in great need of a hero. There are many problems here that need a hero's touch. First of all, the Baron's children (his son and his daughter) are missing, and so the Baron is moping in his castle.

But as a supplement to regular study and a good teacher, videogames can provide both the motivation to study harder and a way to squeeze in a little extra practice. Heck, the reason I wanted to learn Japanese in the first place was because games like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy come out in Japan up to a year before their American releases.
