A new Web Dimension #games

leave a comment »

My father always said there are no games like Web Dimensions (Activision) which are only playable on the computer. Monopoly, Sim City and even a FPG can be played IRL as a board game or with a group of people and a paintball range. I have found another game which would be practically impossible to replicate IRL: Strange Attractors 2.

I had to think about it, and as the game field is 3D we could be inside a ball made from some ferrous material with powerful electron magnets. (MRI rules apply.)

US Air Force Fighter Training

with 2 comments

It’s been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots, if you can go longer on Escapa! than 18 seconds you are brilliant. Fighter pilots are expected to go for at least 2 minutes.

Shouldn’t they be shooting down airliners?
