Through the stories of gaming's greatest innovations and most-beloved creations, journalist Harold Goldberg captures the creativity, controversy - and passion - behind the videogame's meteoric rise to the top of the pop-culture pantheon. Over the last 50 years, video games have grown from curiosities to fads to trends to one of the world's most popular forms of mass entertainment. But as the gaming industry grows in numerous directions, and everyone talks about the advance of the moment, few explore and seek to understand the forces behind this profound evolution. How did we get from Space Invaders to Grand Theft Auto? How exactly did gaming become a $50 billion industry and a dominant pop culture form? What are the stories, the people, the innovations, and the fascinations behind this incredible growth? Through extensive interviews with gaming's greatest innovators, both its icons and those unfairly forgotten by history, All Your Base Are Belong to Us sets out to answer these questions, exposing the creativity, odd theories - and passion - behind the 21st century's fastest-growing medium.

Platelet Alloantibody
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The frequency of platelet-specific antibodies in multitransfused patients and their implication in platelet transfusion refractoriness has been a matter of controversy for years. The main reasons are the difficulties encountered in differentiating between HLA- and platelet-specific antibodies and, within platelet-specific antibodies, between auto- or alloantibodies, using the available platelet antiglobulin test. In the recent years, capture assays were developed, using immobilized platelet membrane glycoprotein (GP) carrying the antigens under investigation to avoid using whole platelets. These assays overcome the difficulties in differentiating platelet-reactive antibody mixtures and allow determination of antibody specificity. For the group of highly HLA-immunized patients in need for HLA-matched single donor platelets, however, there are only as many as 25% will have additional platelet-specific alloantibodies. These platelet-specific alloantibodies will prohibit satisfactory transfusion results if HLA-matched but HPA-incompatible platelets are transfused.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The surface finish of ceramic restorations is important with respect to esthetics, strength, wear of opposing teeth. Hence, glazing has always been advocated as the last surface treatment before final cementation. It is a common practice for clinicians to adjust the porcelain surfaces of dental prostheses. Various options are available like unglazing, polishing and glazing. The change in surface roughness after different surface finishing techniques has attracted the attention of prosthodontist regarding wear of opposing teeth, the strength, plaque retention and appearance of restorations.Currently there exists a considerable controversy over applying the best method to achieve the smoothest and strongest porcelain restoration. In the literature contrasting opinions have been reported by different research groups regarding testing different ceramic materials and surface finishing techniques i.e. auto glazing, over glazing and polishing with a variety of instruments.

Hot Coffee Minigame Controversy
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Hot Coffee minigame controversy concerns a normally inaccessible minigame in the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, developed by Rockstar North. Public awareness of the existence of the minigame arrived with the release of the Hot Coffee mod, created for the version released in 2005 for Windows-based computers. This mod enables access to the minigame. The minigame portrays sexual intercourse between the main character and his in-game girlfriend. The name of the mod is derived from the girlfriend's offer for the main character to come into her home for "coffee" a euphemism for sex. Although the "Hot Coffee" minigame was completely disabled and its existence was only highlighted after the mod's release for the PC version in June 9, 2005,[1] the assets for the minigame were also discovered in both the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game, and people found ways to enable the minigame via console video game hacking tools. By the middle of July 2005, the minigame's discovery attracted considerable controversy from lawmakers and politicians, prompting the game to be re-rated as an adult game, and pulled from some shelves.

Meaning and Culture of Grand Theft Auto
51,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The immensely popular Grand Theft Auto game series has inspired a range of reactions among players and commentators, and a hot debate in the popular media. These essays from diverse theoretical perspectives expand the discussion by focusing scholarly analysis on the games, particularly Grand Theft Auto III (GTA3), Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (GTA: VC), and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (GTA: SA). Part One of the book discusses the fears, lawsuits, legislative proposals, and other public reactions to Grand Theft Auto, detailing the conflict between the developers of adult oriented games and various new forms of censorship. Depictions of race and violence, the pleasure of the carnivalistic gameplay, and the significance of sociopolitical satire in the series are all important elements in this controversy. It is argued that the general perception of digital changed fundamentally following the release of Grand Theft Auto III. The second section of the book approaches the games as they might be studied absent of the controversy. These essays study why and how players meaningfully play Grand Theft Auto games, reflecting on the elements of daily life that are represented in the games. They discuss the connection between game space and real space and the many ways that players mediate the symbols in a game with their minds, computers, and controllers.
