Post Scientific Gaming Journals?

Anyone know of any reputable scientific journals focusing on gaming and perhaps more specifically on game AIs? I'm currently looking for a Masters/PhD thesis or dissertation topic in this area so I want to know what the "cutting edge" of technology is in game AI.

New AI techniques don't usually emerge from game programmers, the game programmers 'merely' implement/adapt/apply established AI techniques like alpha beta/neural networks/genetic algorithms/A star.

When someone invents a new AI technique it's nearly always broad enough to be applied to things outside game programming...so for this reason I think it'd be best you just find out which techniques modern games are using and research those techniques from a generic computer science source (instead of trying to find a game-specific AI journal).

http://www.gamedev.net/forum/9-artificial-intelligence/ will give you an idea of what techniques are being used in games.

I wrote my dissertation (for my software engineering bachelors) on game AI, my topic was minimax/alpha beta and I wrote a generic implementation which I applied to tron.
