Rochester, New York's National Center for the History of Electronic Games (NCHEG) announced the launch of its CHEGheads Blog, a regularly updated section to the organization's existing site.

The blog is maintained by the NCHEG's core staff of three and promises "conversations, commentaries, and insights about the past, present, and future of electronic games."

Right now on the site, you can find posts like a debate on "graphic violence a motivator for game players", thoughts on on-demand gaming platform OnLive, and an account of playing Table Tennis on a Brown Box against video game legend Ralph Baer.

Located in the Strong National Museum of Play (which also houses the National Toy Hall of Fame), NCHEG is devoted to collecting, studying, and interpreting video games and ways they're changing how people play, learn, and connect with each other.

The center's collection includes over 15,000 items, including console/handheld/arcade/PC games, packaging and advertising, game-inspired consumer products, historical records, and other related artifacts and documents.

You can find more information on NCHEG, its staff, the extent of its collections, and its exhibits at the center's official site.
