Ten gaming gadgets that will make us hurt ourselves.Ten gaming gadgets that will make us hurt ourselves.

The new game in the popular skateboarding series will be the first to include an actual skateboard peripheral. This sounds like a great idea, but then again, isn’t the whole point of skateboard games to avoid the injuries that real skateboarders endure?

IBM Supercomputer to be a contestant on Jeopardy.IBM Supercomputer to be a contestant on Jeopardy.

Watson considers massive volumes and varieties of natural language, then quickly analyzes and scores supporting or refuting evidence—in a matter of seconds. Jeopardy is the perfect forum in which to display Watson's advances in artificial intelligence, according to IBM.

Daily Grind: Rested

Name: Vin (aka kevin)
How Vin feels today: Rested @ 9:40:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To enjoy this nice laid-back feeling for as long as possible.

Music Stuck in Head: Nothing Too Tough / The Backyardigans
The in-car music of choice for the little ones. Multiple times. Every car ride.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note that that the latest Pixar offering, UP, was quite enjoyable
  • Note that the Disney 3D experience is not all that it's cracked up to be
  • ...the effects were kind of neat but overall it kind of degraded the overall definition of the movie
  • Stop being such a movie experience nerd
  • Speaking of Disney, read up some more technical explanation regarding the monorail crash
  • Wait patiently to see what LucasArts has in store today for this 'special announcement' they teased all weekend on Twitter
  • My guess is still Grim Fandango

Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.

Looks pretty decent so far although I could have done with a few less 'yars' from LeChuck. Reminder: 6 days left to pre-order. Also, Monkey Island Special Edition comes out on July 15 (after Tales of MI - which is strange).
