In 1977 a single film called Star Wars exploded on the consciousness of the world. Since then the franchise, created by George Lucas, has become a global entertainment corporation. The merchandise of the original trilogy was largely confined to toys and games, but those games have since become computerized, the toys more sophisticated, and Star Wars has moved into the multi-media environment of the twenty-first century in ways unimaginable in the long-ago world of 1977. Computer games and web sites, novels, animated television shows, as well as a new trilogy of films, have all placed Star Wars at the center of world popular culture. Finding the Force of the Star Wars Franchise brings together contributors who critically analyze the Star Wars universe from many perspectives. Topics include war, foreign policy, gender roles, spirituality and religion, toy play and adult collecting, creative fandom, race, special effects, and mythology.

Psychology of Zelda
€ 14.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It´s dangerous to go alone! Take this (book). For more than 30 years, The Legend of Zelda-which immerses players in a courageous struggle against the shadowy forces of evil in a world of high fantasy-has spanned more than 30 different installments, selling over 75 million copies. Today, it is one of the most beloved video game franchises around the globe. Video game sales as a whole have continued to grow, now raking in twice as much money per year as the entire film industry, and countless psychologists have turned their attention to the effects gaming has on us: our confidence, our identity, and our personal growth. The Psychology of Zelda applies the latest psychological findings, plus insights from classic psychology theory, to Link, Zelda, Hyrule, and the players who choose to wield the Master Sword. In The Psychology of Zelda, psychologists who love the games ask: How do Link´s battles in Ocarina of Time against Dark Link, his monstrous doppelganger, mirror the difficulty of confronting our personal demons and the tendency to be our own worst enemies? What lessons about pursuing life´s greater meaning can we take away from Link´s quests through Hyrule and beyond the stereotypical video game scenario of rescuing a Princess (Zelda)? What do we experience as players when we hear that familiar royal lullaby on the ocarina, Saria´s spirited melody in the Lost Woods, or the iconic main theme on the title screen? How do the obstacles throughout Majora´s Mask represent the Five Stages of Grief? What can Link´s journey to overcome the loss of the fairy Navi teach us about understanding our own grief and depression? Why are we psychologically drawn to the game each and every time a new version becomes available even when they all have a similar storyline? Think you´ve completed the quest? The Psychology of Zelda gives you new, thrilling dungeons to explore and even more puzzles to solve.

Chasing Perfection: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at...

Basketball team building is the ultimate challenge at the NBA level, and the last few years have seen a massive change in the amount of money, technology, and approaches to finding and evaluating players. This process starts at the high school level, goes through college, and culminates in the NBA, where the ability to identify and cultivate talent is at an absolute premium. Media and fans like to talk about ´´busts´´ when a player doesn´t work out, but in truth it takes a complete team/franchise culture beyond any evaluation system to ensure the greatest chance of player success. Spanning the entire amateur and pro basketball landscape and using the 2014-2015 NBA season as a prism to a much larger story, Chasing Perfection is a fascinating, all-access spin through the inner workings of the smartest minds at every level of the game. It is about the ongoing relentless, high-stakes quest to find what national sportswriter Andy Glockner calls ´´perfected players´´ and what ultimately happens to them at the highest (pro) level. Every team knows they want to find the next Jordan or LeBron. Rather, the resources teams are pouring into various kinds of research and analysis is intended to turn less-expensive supporting players into crucial extra wins and, hopefully, championships. Chasing Perfection explores those players who, by the end of their run through high school and college and into the NBA, hit as many qualitative and quantitative predictors of future success as possible. Molded and then unearthed by years-long processes, they theoretically should be very strong contributors, but there are a ton of external factors that can affect individual success. Sometimes, though, they bomb, and the stories of why they do are as interesting and illustrative as those who actually succeed. Maybe more so. Chasing Perfection will generate a lot of conversation, as fans of both basketball and Moneyball-style performance anal... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Corrigan.
