About two years ago, when I was pregnant, Sweety bought me a GameCube game called Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life. This is the girled-up second entry in the Harvest Moon line. Basically, it's a farming sim with a tiny bit of plot and a lot of relationships with the neighbors. Oh, and since this is the girl version, you also raise a kid and can buy clothes. Sweety thought I could play it while I was on bedrest, enjoying the progress of root vegetables as our own little harvest gestated.

As it turned out, I couldn't very well play console games lying on my left side with a continual nosebleed. So I just started playing it a few weeks ago. And although I'm enjoying it, it's teaching me some things about how I play games.

PopCap Games, makers of delightful and addictive casual games, are having a fund drive for breast cancer research. From now until Mother's Day (May 11), they're donating 30% of the price of every game bought to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

PopCap makes mostly puzzles and arcade-type games, all with energetic music and attractive graphics. Titles you might know include Peggle, Bejeweled, and Chuzzle. The company promises a special gift to everyone who donates if the donations reach $100,000.00.

So, if you were looking for a new game to play, here's a good reason to download a trial and see if there's a PopCap game you'd like to buy. Heck, I'd ask my kids to do it, if they had credit cards.
