Educational Computer Games and Learning:Three Empirical Studies of Games´ Impact on Virtual Presence, Cognitive Load and Learning Outcomes Claudia Schrader
Named for the late Hoban Washburne and built on the newer Series IV Firefly Chassis, the Jetwash befits its namesake: fast, with plenty of tricks up its sleeve. This set includes a new Story card and a new Set Up Card, adding lots of new ways to ply the Verse!If you need cargo delivered quickly and quietly, the Jetwash is the ship for you. Like all Series IV Firefly vessels the Jetwash boasts an expansive cargo bay, with room to spare for any load. Taking inspiration from its namesake, the Jetwash also come pre-equipped with some dynamic upgrades. Navigating treacherous space is a mite easier when deploying the ships Decoy Nav Sat Cluster. And if the Jetwash does find itself in a tight spot, a boost from its ram jets can ensure that the ship reaches its destination. At the helm of the Jetwash, you will be a leaf on the wind and other captains will watch you soar.
Beginning 3D Game Development with Unity 4 is perfect for those who would like to come to grips with programming Unity. You may be an artist who has learned 3D tools such as 3ds Max, Maya, or Cinema 4D, or you may come from 2D tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator. On the other hand, you may just want to familiarize yourself with programming games and the latest ideas in game production. This book introduces key game production concepts in an artist-friendly way, and rapidly teaches the basic scripting skills you´ll need with Unity. It goes on to show how you, as an independent game artist, can create interactive games, ideal in scope for today´s casual and mobile markets, while also giving you a firm foundation in game logic and design. The first part of the book explains the logic involved in game interaction, and soon has you creating game assets through simple examples that you can build upon and gradually expand. In the second part, you´ll build the foundations of a point-and-click style first-person adventure game-including reusable state management scripts, dialogue trees for character interaction, load/save functionality, a robust inventory system, and a bonus feature: a dynamically configured maze and mini-map. With the help of the provided 2D and 3D content, you´ll learn to evaluate and deal with challenges in bite-sized pieces as the project progresses, gaining valuable problem-solving skills in interactive design. By the end of the book, you will be able to actively use the Unity 3D game engine, having learned the necessary workflows to utilize your own assets. You will also have an assortment of reusable scripts and art assets with which to build future games.
What do you get when the baddest chick and four cold-blooded killers enter a Newark, New Jersey, strip club strapped with Mac 11s? You get a nasty body count and the lick of a lifetime! Not only do Charisma, GQ, Shamar, and Crook steal bricks of coke and a load of gwop from the strip club, but the crew also reaps the promise of certain death once the club´s owner puts his goons on their trail! The close-knit crew refuses to go out like suckers and soon hits the money-making blocks of Wilmington, Delaware, where a cycle of vicious murders, merciless thefts, and insatiable greed follow them. As they grow more ruthless, their diabolical deeds finally capture the attention of the deadliest queenpin in the drug game, placing her right in their path. With goons aiming for their heads, the crew splits up with plans to work new hustles. But once a secret is revealed, the crew´s bond is nearly broken, and an enemy catches them slipping and declares swift revenge. Will the crew remain intact or fall like a line of well-set dominoes in the Game of Gwop? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mr. Gates.

An intriguing blend of science and sports that explores how some of the world´s greatest athletes are utilizing the last frontier of performance-enhancing technology - the mental mapping and engineering of their own brains - for peak performance and what it means for the future of athleticism, sports, and the rest of us. Moneyball showed how statistics were revolutionizing baseball. The Sports Gene revealed the role genetics play in sports. Now, Head in the Game examines the next evolution: how mental engineering - the manipulation of the cognitive processes of the brain - can make gifted athletes even better. For years technology - from EEG (electroencephalogram) to fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to video games, tablets, and personal data collection devices - have been used with soldiers to understand their physical and mental functioning. Touching on brain functionality vital to sports - both the ´´hard´´ (coordination, stimuli processing, functional memory, decision making, load processing) and the ´´soft´´ (emotion regulation, visualization, psychology, mindfulness) - this tech is now being adopted by scores of championship franchises and top athletes - including scrappy underdogs forced to innovate and elite players looking for an advantage. Star NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Tom Brady, the NBA´s Kyle Korver, and Olympic volleyball champion Kerri Walsh are using mental engineering to up their game. It´s not luck that has transformed the San Antonio Spurs into a formidable force - it´s science, Sneed demonstrates. As mental engineering becomes widespread - taking athletes who are already freaks of nature and making them better - the impact on the multibillion-dollar sports industry will be dramatic on players, managers, trainers, owners, and even fans. Interviewing athletes and coaches, visiting training camps and sports science firms, Brandon Sneed offers a firsthand, on-the-ground look at thi 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Tecosky.

What can you do when you only have two years left under the sun? You can, for instance, keep to yourself and lose all contact with reality. You can spend all this remaining time feeling sorry for yourself and crying.... But I decided to act in a completely different way: If you have just a few years left to live, then why not enjoy yourself to the fullest? But how would I do that? It´s a piece of cake, since there is a virtual reality I can run to. And, as I´ve found out, there is a new project being launched pretty soon, about which only scarce info has been given. The only information available is on the official website of the game Alfarome. ´´Are you fed up with elves, gnomes, and other typical races from fantasy novels for teenagers? Sick and tired of reading about medieval battles and life in those dark times? Then, welcome to Alfarome! What´s in store for you here? It´s a brand new game, in the genre of post-apocalyptic cyberpunk, that tests your endurance! And what else can you hope for? That´s top secret, because any information can bring you money and you could make loads of it in the game!´´© Well, I´d love to go back to the old good days, when I was young and hale. Taking into account my past, this kind of virtual world will be just perfect for me! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin T. Collins.
