I got a little flak in my previous post about Homestar, the non-game where you can learn about the stars. It seems like you guys really were interested in the game (at least those of you brave enough to leave comments). Well, Impress Watch has revealed that the game will be the second to support the upcoming GPS peripheral. Using the device, the game will be able to recreate what your night sky should look like. If you live in New York City like I do, that means you haven't seen the stars in years due to light pollution. Homestar just got a whole lot cooler in my book.
Although the GPS peripheral does not have a release date, Homestar comes out in Japan in October. Check out Impress Watch for more screenshots of the game in action.

I dabble in astronomy and I usually have the website' starchart from skyandtelescope saved on my laptop when I'm outside stargazing. Having this would make things much easier to manage.

PErhaps they could offer a special download for New Yorkers indicating the locations of working street lamps. If they're broken in the right pattern they seem almost like constellations!
