“Multiple Literacies in 2008 Holiday Games”

The January epsoide of Games in Libraries podcast was released today.  The podcast itself is filled with a number of good interviews including one with the Video Game Librarian.  The final segment of the podcast includes a discussion about the multiple literacies being put into practice by some of the bigger games of the holiday 2008 season.  I talk about the traditional, media, visual, and information literacies at work within the following games:

Could have been better if we too have this kind of events. Your list in your post I think are interesting games. Can I get it as Download Games? I do not have much time playing online so I prefer saving them either in console memory or hard drive.
