The British chap also helped clear up one of our misperceptions about a military legend.   British General Bernard L. Montgomery could not have possibly sent German General Erwin Rommel the message "I read your book (you bastard!)" because Rommel had, at that point in history, only published one book, which was about the Infantry and not armored vehicles.

 

We immediately commenced a recon patrol to find "Rise of Flight."  

 

In the search we came across folks from the University of Pittsburg promoting the game "Doctor Transplant," which is a game which teaches players all about the topic of organ transplants.   When we were young playing doctor was very verboten territory.

 

We came across a man who had just retired from a career in banking and was now helping promote a video gardening game called Garden Quest.   Players will learn things which will deliver practical knowledge which can be transferred into real life and enthusiastic replies to the question "How does your garden grow?"

 

We participated in a virtual roller coaster ride that was augmented by a very expense chair that delivers the sensations of physical movement and thus makes the ride feel like an authentic amusement park experience.   We suggested that they should offer a copy of the game and one of the chairs to the Playboy Mansion in L. A.

 

Someone somewhere was bound to start a video games museum and sure enough, we encountered the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment and it just happens to be located in Oakland CA and so we might devote a future column to their story.

 

When we spotted a large red case decorated with a black Maltese cross, we honed in on that like a heat-seeking video missile.   "Curse you, Red Baron!   We will meet again someday and when we do, you will rue the day!"  

 

There is (to the best of our ability to ascertain) no video game about journalism, let alone a Gonzo Game.   There is a game for a simulated paperboy peddling his route experience.

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
