Hi I use to attend Digipen years ago and I currently graduated with my Degree in Graphic Design and what I want to offer you is help with board, card games and instruction booklets.

I remember when I was a BAGD how difficult it was to due boards, cards and flashy instructions. I didn't know how to construct them in a way that would line up correctly or print out. Put it this way, it took me hours trying to make a grid for a board game and even longer to look right.

So if anyone needs help with their projects let me know and we can figure something out.

Reminder to the BO that 8chan is a broken POS and hotwheels is porting us over to InfDev. Not sure how the move works but you should found out or something.

ed86a0  No.3468

Hi, sorry I didn't see this when it was posted. 8chan is indeed a broken POS; we can't even edit the banners anymore because they're focusing all development on Infinity Next (or whatever it's going to be called). Which is great, because anything would be better than this heap of trash, and the "Infinity Next Beta" actually seems pretty neat.

That said, I've squatted /digipen/ there, just in case, but I'm hoping that when 8chan actually migrates to Infinity Next for reals, they'll just seamlessly move all of the boards over.

I think for the time being, we should stay here, just to keep this minimal amount of discussion all in one place and not fragment things, though I'm willing to hear out other opinions.

Also that screencap is amazing.

I don't pay much attention to clubs, but I can say that two of the most "vocal' clubs, diversity club and Cage of the Week, are both headed by BAGD's, and neither has anything to do with video games.

I don't really want to run a club, I'm busy making games. What I said is that calling it a "LAN" party is a misnomer, as the only reliable game to appear at these functions is League of Legends.

Whenever one of these things is announced, I consider taking a break to do it, then realize that the only networked game I can count on is a game that I have no particular interest in. So instead, I stay home, work on one of my game projects, play something to take a break, jerk off, and then wake up refreshed and ready for the next day.

If you can tell me how going to the "LAN party" is a better experience than cumming into a tube sock, I'm all ears, but all I really see about it is a big circle jerk where we can all pretend like LOL has any chance of being as popular as the major sports.

Special shoutout to the people who say Americans shout take in immigrants because Americans were all immigrants too. Doesn't matter what your feeling on immigration is now, it's a really stupid line of thinking. Didn't work out well for the indigenous population last time so using that to fight anti-immigration rhetoric is hilarious

How long before Thanksgiving is Indigenous People Day 2: Electric Boogaloo? Or maybe just Guilt Day.

There's actually a term for when having too much awareness of a subject hurts it: Narcotizing Dysfunction.


Basically, this theory states that humans are lazy, and will substitute actually doing something about a subject with knowing a lot about it. I've seen it in action, when I used to volunteer at a non-profit.


Nature vs nurture is hardly a solved debate on any aspect of human life, however, there do seem to be some distinct difference between male and female behavior throughout history. We can talk about centuries of "patriarchy", or we can talk about millennia…and go back roughly 5000 years to the beginning of human civilization.

Rulers in Egypt were largely male. I could find a list of 14 females who may possibly have served as Pharaoh OR Regent. 14 female rulers across over 3000 years.


The kings of Sumeria were almost entirely male. On the appropriately titled "Sumerian King List", only a single female appears.


A search into Chinese history led me to what appears to be a pretty comprehensive list of Female rulers dating before 1000 BC:


You'll notice only a single female Chinese ruler during this time.

I wasn't trying to put words in your mouth. You brought up a few points that you briefly touched on, and I asked that you think about them critically.

I'm largely done arguing talking points. I could post Quinn tweets and FemFreq IRS statements all day and all I'd really end up achieving is wasting both our time.

I'm tired of making it a 'me versus you' or 'us versus them' thing, because it isn't. We're all devs here. I wouldn't go as far as to say we're all /gamers/, but we're definitely all people who enjoy games to some degree - we wouldn't be at this fucking school otherwise. Most importantly, we're all /human/. It's hypocritical of me to be going for the throat when we're on the same team, so to speak.

I want you guys to understand where I'm coming from, even if you don't necessarily agree with me. I'd like you to know why I say what I say in terms of its effect on our hobby and our society as a whole, even though in the cosmic scale of things it doesn't really matter.


>Patriarchy and gender roles

Disclaimer: I am not an expert nor do I claim to be an expert on the history of gender roles; most everything I say is pure speculation (if that wasn't obvious enough already).

A lot of it comes from traditional hunter-gatherer roles, I'm sure. And while a lot of bio-truths are complete baloney (stuff like "Women like pretty colors because historically they gathered berries, which are brightly colored"), you won't find a soul in the world that will argue that testosterone helps muscle development and aids in energy management and other factors that are beneficial for a hunter-gatherer or a farmer.

However, we've moved on as a society past that point for a /long/ time now - as recently as the advent of 'modern' civilization (The late 1800s, or thereabouts - the Industrial Revolution and the rise of capitalism/consumer culture), and honestly there's a finPost too long.

>I could post Quinn tweets and FemFreq IRS statements all day and all I'd really end up achieving is wasting both our time

most definitely, especially because I've already stated that I have zero interest in either. I don't know what posting either of those things would prove. you've still yet to explain to me how either of those women should be noteworthy in any way, aside from being victims of harassment to the point of making careers out of it. posting tweets or IRS statements is not going to change that

>I want you guys to understand where I'm coming from, even if you don't necessarily agree with me. I'd like you to know why I say what I say in terms of its effect on our hobby and our society as a whole, even though in the cosmic scale of things it doesn't really matter.

as long as you agree that:

1. works of art cannot be inherently harmful to society (as long as no living creatures are harmed in the process of creating it)

2. artists should be free to create whatever they want to create

3. artists are not obligated to use their works of art to further political agendas (but may do so if they wish)

4. all art doesn't have to have all humans as its target audience

, then there's nothing else that needs to be discussed here, I think

if I'm playing around with Unity and I make a game where a spaceship shoots asteroids, I don't have to shoehorn in some greater societal message about the underprivileged before I release it to the Internet

if I, as a male, write a female character into one of my games, I can write them however I wish. I don't have any responsibility to make them one way or another. I don't have to rewatch all of FemFreq's videos and make sure that itPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yeah we're running into the Galbrush problem

Where men can be written whatever, but female characters have to reflect on the creator's idea of all women everywhere

I don't care what you might think that disproves this argument. But just look at the picture and imagine for a second. What's the one sex and race character combination nobody is allowed to complain about in regards to being a terrible/worthless/broken/crazy person?


>not all men are like the male character in Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey

Abusers dressed up at sexual icons?

Seriously, those guys are really fucking creepy and it's weird that they're so popular among women.

faec70  No.3421


I've been struggling for a while with how to respond this. Whether women are "equal" (whatever the fuck that means) or not to men is irrelevant. Testosterone makes men, on average, more aggressive. No amount of "inclusion" is going to change that more men than women play Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, and Gears of War. AAA studios have their audience, and it's men.

If you want to change that, you need to come up with real solutions. Complaining about a game not having any female leads isn't a solution, because 99% of the people purchasing the games don't care. My problem with the current set of arguments is that they aren't arguing that companies think about how they are portraying women, they're DEMANDING better representation.

So, do we as an industry need to think about how we are portraying women and other minorities? Yeah, of course.

But we don't need some crazy person crying sexism every time a game has a sexy female character.

Isn't this like the 3rd lecture you guys have had on this topic?


$1,236 per 2-hour class apparently. Maybe next year they'll be even luckier and Rhinoger will tell then what sort of clothes they could've bought with the money they spent on the clothing lecture. Also nobody goes to GAT for the lectures; the projects are the classes (not saying that's worth it though).

I actually have been in your exact situation. I wound up telling them that while I enjoyed working with them, since it was only freshman year, I wanted to try and work with different people.

If they're not childish then you should straight up say "You guys aren't pulling your weight and I'd like a more motivated team." I know it sounds harsh to the point of burning bridges, but it'll allow some people to analyze how much work they've done rather than actually ruin that connection. Then if they are a baby or not a baby "I want to get to know more people in our class since it'll help me in future."

Trust me, even if your future teams may be shit, they'll know you. Hopefully you weren't dead weight so they'll remember you in a positive way. You should get to know your class starting now.. well more like during sophomore year since you'll see a lot of people dropping out freshman year which are mostly pointless connections for your career.

8bd4e0  No.3390


I recommend telling them that your work styles don't mesh. I've turned down a few projects before more or less because I didn't want to work with the team. I put it to them in kinder words, but the people were reasonable, said okay, and we're still decent friends.

If your friend is reasonable, I expect you'll have a similar outcome.
