For some reason, Pocket PC game *** content is starting to creep into our PDA downloads.
I can certainly understand why. A study on Handheld Computer Use in a Psychiatric Outreach Program found that PDA users were likely to be male physicians under 35 than to be female or older physician.
If these statistics apply to the population at large, I'm willing to bet that there may be some merit to it.
I mean, I'm smack in the middle of this age range myself. It figures that PDA game developers will target whatever demographic their market surveys happen to target.
Targeted, niche-based marketing in gaming is where it's at, my brutha. I mean, chances are, you're male.
That's not to say that my entire Pocket PC game readership is made of solely of males. Females seem to have a proclivity toward non-thumb injuring games.
My wife loves my site, is an avid PDA gamer and is also an extremely zealous Bejeweled 2 Pocket PC puzzle gamer.
By the way, Jessie, hats off to you for your 23,142 Classic mode and 1,294,750 Action mode scores. She simply won't admit that she's been following the tips that I've posted on my site.
Kudos if I can put you squarely in the PDA puzzle game clique- iPAQ thumb from excessive button mashing can be painful at times. The joint of my thumb aches when I press down at an angle.
This was compounded by s-video based desktop PC gaming which is performed with the same Logitech wireless controller that I described in my September 19th blog entry.
My extended, fairly incessant Pocket PC gaming may also be attributed to this.
My latest site update involved an article detailing the brand spanking new Ultimate Bowling Fighter release. Not that there's spanking involved, but there may as well be for the skimpy outfits some of those female pro bowlers wear.
Add a picture-in-picture screen with bouncy women holding up “Strike!" signs and low riding pants, and you've got a most unique PDA sports game download with some degree of *** content.
Does this mean that we're on the cusp of a *** Pocket PC gaming revolution? Only time will tell.
