    The Glucoboy.

    Game descriptions here.

    The games seem like the usual meh generic RPG/Wak-A-Mole/SHUMP titles, and the system is somewhat flawed (I can just about imagine the kid going around stabbing people with the sample needle in order to get Glucose Points), but the general idea is commendable.

    EDIT: In case you missed it, this game is aimed at diabetics, who would be watching their glucose either way, and definitely isn't intended to promote stabbing oneself or others among non-diabetics.

    Is this some edutainment style title to encourage diabetic kids to properly regulate their blood sugar or is it aimed at everyone?

    Diabetic kids. It's meant to make their daily self-stabbing a little less harrowing.

    Wow, this is truly great, as a kid I had a friend that was diabetic..he really had some hard times everyday. I'm sure this would have made it easier for him. Now that Glucoboy...doesn't sound right to me for some reason >_

    Seems way too gimmicky to work from my point of view. Not quite as bad as Captain Novolin for the SNES though.

    Um, that's a very relative measure. Some people were in the 8th grade twenty years ago, some are still in the 8th grade.

    This is most awesomest way to control my glucose levels! I would get one, even if I'm not diabetic... since this is the USA. Any of your fat gamers should get one too. You're going to be losing a limb sooner or later.

    but in all seriousness, I hope somebody figures out to integrate this with homebrew.

    I'm not going to purchase something to play some homebrew that requires me to stab myself.

    The kids might be converted into emos addicted to poking themselves to get points.

    I've heard of sheading blood sweat and tears to master a video game. BUT THIS IS abit much!

    j/k this seems like a very welcome idea for diabetic kiddys

    Hmm, I will have to recommend this to a diabetic gamer i know. A DS pedometer should have been released for Duke's walking navi, that would have been a nice addition.What's next, a heart rate monitor? or maybe a digital thermometer for cooking mama?

    Speaking of accessories, a finished gps receiver would be nice.
