    That's pretty cool. The Brain Age games on DS weren't too bad.

    I think studying trains the brain better than this thing.

    Kawashima is an actual Japanese scientist and he can stick his name on anything he wants to stick it on. They are not calling it "Brain Age", you know.

    So THIS is going to be their casual killer app! You can bet well see Sony try their hand at something similar soon.

    That's like comparing a short morning exercise routine to a gym workout. This game being the morning exercise equivalent, of course.

    This is interesting so I would probably check it out.
    The Brain Age games were good though.
    My whole family even got into them lol.

    What is odd is that Kawashima doesn't even ask to be paid for the games, he just freely gives the license away! Bandai Namco released a couple of games with his name on for phone.

    Odd but nice to see he's not so money-hungry like many "celebs" in the gaming industry.
