I was inspired by ArenaNet’s April Fool’s Day event. Normally, I frown upon a day that’s dedicated towards playing pranks. But today, Guild Wars was filled with fun, love and happiness.

Members of the Photics Team use computer downtime to help scientists better understand protein folding and the related diseases. This could help humanity! To reward this noble act, Photics.com is throwing another contest. For every point you contribute to the team (from the date of this post until April 30, 2009) may count as a chance to win the $30 World of Warcraft Game Card. This is also a chance to show the world the strength of the Photics Team, already in the top 2% of all Folding teams.
2007 was an excellent year for Nintendo. According to the company, the Nintendo DS was the #1 selling game system and the Wii was #2. With both top spots secured, where can Nintendo go from here? There’s no need to wonder what’s next, as a tentative game lineup list is now available.
The Virtual Console is taking this website full circle. I reviewed Pokemon Snap (N64) over eight years ago. Today, it is released to the Wii. Ghost’n Goblins (NES) and Baseball Stars 2 (NEOGEO) are also included in this week’s Virtual Console releases.
At this very moment, computers all around the world are calculating protein folding simulations. By better understanding this process, it is hoped that cures to deadly diseases can be found. The Photics Team has been exceptional in this endeavor. Out of 84,000+ teams, the Photics Team is in the top 5000 and climbing.
