Please  Can We Play Games

¿Please, can we play games now?¿ is a frequent plea in the early childhood classroom. Children explore and relate to their world through play, and something magical happens when it¿s time for games and a caring adult dons the cloak of playful lightheartedness. A regular offering of appropriate games in the early childhood curriculum can create a powerful atmosphere for healthy development. Between teacher and children a safe harbor springs up¿a place where trust, interest, joy, and an enthusiasm for learning is kindled. Rudolf Steiner expressed many times that children thrive in an atmosphere of joy, warmth, and love. He also stressed the importance of imitation in early childhood. The Waldorf early childhood classroom strives to be a place where children want to follow their teacher¿s worthy example. Please, Can We Play Games? offers the author¿s forty years of creating, collecting, and playing traditional and original verses, songs, and games for early childhood circle time or home play. As you make your way through the pages of this book, may you enjoy your own personal harvest of food for the young child¿s body, soul, and spirit. Perhaps for you too!

How to Play Video Games

Forty original contributions on games and gaming culture What does Pokémon Go tell us about globalization? What does Tetris teach us about rules? Is feminism boosted or bashed by Kim Kardashian: Hollywood? How does BioShock Infinite help us navigate world-building? From arcades to Atari, and phone apps to virtual reality headsets, video games have been at the epicenter of our ever-evolving technological reality. Unlike other media technologies, video games demand engagement like no other, which begs the question—what is the role that video games play in our lives, from our homes, to our phones, and on global culture writ large? How to Play Video Games brings together forty original essays from today’s leading scholars on video game culture, writing about the games they know best and what they mean in broader social and cultural contexts. Read about avatars in Grand Theft Auto V, or music in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. See how Age of Empires taught a generation about postcolonialism, and how Borderlands exposes the seedy underbelly of capitalism. These essays suggest that understanding video games in a critical context provides a new way to engage in contemporary culture. They are a must read for fans and students of the medium.

The Earthman

Adam is on a mission to find a new planet for the human race, and instead, he stumbles into an extraordinary new universe where the sky and sun are of different colours and the moon and oceans are nonexistent. He is rescued and cared for by a family from the planet Xoor, a planet of superpowerful beings. Adam, of course, finds it hard to believe at first, but with time, he learns to accept it. Now, he wants to repay these people for their hospitality; he wants to make a contribution, and he wants to integrate socially into their way of life, their habits, and their customs. The truth is, he is enticing them to his. The Xoorians are about to find out about the superhuman race.
