Now this is great. Instead of playing with light sabers, talk with light sticks. This little device scans your highly creative and artistic doodles and displays them in the air for your friends (or anyone around) to see and enjoy. Simply doodle, scan, shake and share. Repeat the steps as needed. Would be pretty sweet to do at a sporting event to talk some smack to the opposing team, however, I’m not sure if they’ll be able to read it from large distances. At $39.99, I’ll let someone else try it out and report back to see how well that works.

Google AdSense has truly become the love of the Internet as far as monetizing a website goes. It is simple to apply for, and incorporate into any website. With a bit of tweaking, you can instantly add hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to your revenue using this tool. Recently Google has moved AdSense For Feeds into beta. This product is simply used to place Google AdSense ads into your RSS feed, providing an easy way to monetize RSS. A few larger blogs have been accepted into the beta program, including Weblogs, Inc. and Lockergnome. Google requires that a site have at least 100 RSS subscribers in order to be accepted into the program, but they have been turning down sites which have many times more than that minimum requirement. If you have an RSS feed and an AdSense account, you can apply for AdSense For Feeds.

Mario Baseball is yet another foray by Nintendo into the Mario sports genre. Nintendo did not separate Mario Baseball much from their MLB baseball game as the two played very much alike on a fundamental level. However, I did like that each character had their own style of batting and fielding. For example, the Sunshine guys from Mario Sunshine use a palm tree as their bat which allow them more space on the bat to hit the ball. Read on for our full impressions.
I love platformers. In fact, if I had to choose one game type to play for the rest of my life it would be platformers. Because of all this love I have for platformers there is one thing I hate more then anything else, including Rockstars games, is a bad platformer. Most kiddie platformers, like Tak, are just bad. So bad that I have giving up all hope that there might ever will be a good children’s platformer. That all changed when I saw Chicken Little at E3 - find out why after the jump.
