War and Games on The Gamesome Mac
3:42 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

On tonight's first anniversary broadcast of The Gamesome Mac, the weekly Mac gaming radio program, hosts Sean Smith and Omaha Sternberg join Mac game publishers, journalists, and listeners in exploring some of the issues surrounding war, entertainment, and commerce in the computer gaming industry.

How do computer war games affect our outlook? Do they help us to be more aware of political and strategic complexities, or do they desensitize us to the horrors of war? How might the marketing of games change as a result of the war in Iraq, and what ethical questions are raised by the effects of war on commerce? What changes in war gaming might we see in five years as a result of the changing international political landscape?

Tonight's guests include MacGamer's Corey Tamás, Aspyr Media's Nestor Hernandez, MacPlay's Henry Price (travel permitting), and others, and Sean and Omaha will be soliciting comments from listeners sharing their own perspectives in The Gamesome Mac's live chat room.

The Gamesome Mac can be heard live from 6 to 8 pm Pacific Time, 9 to 11 pm Eastern (Tuesday at 0200 UTC) on You can tune in at The Gamesome Mac's web page, where you'll also find archives of past broadcasts. QuickTime 5 or 6 and a 28 kbps or faster Internet connection are required.
