Probably either the trash or used for card backs for GAT projects. I did that last year and Holcomb gave me a +2 for cards that felt sturdy rather than just index card in sleeves.

Generally speaking, I wouldn't recommend doing that. Out of curiosity, what was the problem? Or are you just wondering?

Nope, but if you do please post it here because I hate having to check out a laptop every weekend and I'm not letting michealsoft's grubby hands anywhere near my computer.

DigiPen isn't regionally accredited. It shouldn't be a surprise that a University wouldn't accept our credits.

I thought it was regionally accredited but not nationally?

bcd802  No.2785


I've done CS120,170 MAT140,150 English something, GAM and COM

The lead advisor at UW comp sci said DigiPen isn't accredited by the same place that accredits most universities so my credits wouldn't transfer.

Did you transfer yours to UW or elsewhere?

bcd802  No.2787


I transferred CS120, 170, 230(my advisor managed to help me pitch that one to some board), MAT 140,150, and whatever the next one was, the two freshmen English classes, PSY101, COM, and I swear there were some others. Sorry I can't cover more.

University of Chicago , actually. I know someone else who dropped last year and transferred somewhere in fucking Nebraska.

bcd802  No.2789


Oh yea 230 also.

Maybe I'll talk to more people about it. I just figured the lead advisor for the program might know whats up.

DigiPen RTIS vs. UW CompSci

7d8025  No.2758

UW doesn't have as good of an alumni network. It also seems like DigiPen grads are generally more well respected/have an easier time getting a food in the door. There's also baggage, since they have a reputation for being kind of bigheaded.

UW grads will probably be fine as well, but the DigiPen name carries a lot of heft.

So what do you guys think of the "random" allocation of team spaces. I personally think that they are nowhere near random. They have been manipulated by someone. I think we all know who manipulated it.

At my internship, I had to pick up Git. At my job, I had to pick up Perforce (and a couple of programming languages, design patterns, etc.). Having to learn things on your own is part of the job. IMO DigiPen would be doing you a disservice by spoonfeeding too much. Some degree of forced independent learning is important!

Scurvy isn't contagious. It's a condition caused by vitamin C deficiency.

What about an outbreak in the same way that obesity is an "epidemic" in the US?

Nope, the current definition of epidemic means an infectious disease. If anyone tells you there is an obesity/scurvy epidemic they are a jackaas.

BSGD turned RTIS. Does anyone have recommendations on shit I can do to ACTUALLY learn digital game design? At present I've just got a notebook of what I like/dislike about games I play and how I'd change 'em.

2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.

078872  No.2654

When you play games, pay attention to how they do different things. How do they guide the player through a level? What do they do that are both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional? How do all aspects of the game lend to a "fun" experience?

Yeah, the biggest problem with the Game Design program is the 1.5 years of board game design. They will argue that it's all the same medium, but that's bs, we're no more the same medium as board games than we are of movies.

The higher level GAT classes get better. Most of what I got out of the first 1.5 years was some pretty good tips on how to write a rulebook, which actually does translate fairly well. But, that was all of like 2 or 3 weeks of GAT210.

078872  No.2661

> learn digital game design?

This may be obvious, but make small games or mods in another game(such as Starcraft or Dota2). Then sift through the comments to find posts where they are calling your game shit for X, Y, Z.

078872  No.2662

1. Don't go to college for game design.

2. Start modding stuff (Source, Roblox, Minecraft, GMod, Whatever)

3. ???

4. Profit

078872  No.2663

Similar story here except CS, from what I understand just make shit and think about the shit you're making. ALL you have to do is when you put something in your game think about what effect it will have and what would happen if you change it in different ways. Then change it and see how it is, and have other people play your shit and tell you how awful it is and why. Eventually you'll understand it and you'll have the added bonus of also being a good programmer because you didn't waste your time in a useless degree program. "Game Design" now is much like cinematography in the 1940s, the field hasn't had nearly enough time to really get into the in depth stuff that would justify a degree based on it. At best the GAT classes should just be made into electives but all the good ones right now are locked away behind the shit ones. But the first thing this school needs are a lot more business classes and even a major/minor for it.

How is this year going for everyone

freshman here and given what I saw on this board going into it I am pleasantly surprised by how much I like it here, especially the teachers and almost every non-BAGD student.

But fuck badgers though god damn they are annoying. 2 of my dormies are badgers and I don't mind one but the other embodies everything I can hate in a person: she is SJW, lazy, ignorant, full of herself, and all she does is complain about everything except herself. Also she's a full on biowarefag. I know its mean to want people to fail but I really hope her laziness gets the best of her so she has to drop out. I actually applied as a BAGD then switched to BSCSGD after coming to this board and now I'm just BSCS after seeing that I'd be critically analysing gone homo. Very happy with that decision.

What are some good clubs here? I just started in a 5E group (1 DM 3 players right now) in tabletop club and game design club was 10x better than the GAT class I went to before withdrawing. Also making a Dota club even though there's a MOBA club so I can get twice as many –pizzas– social experiences. If they let me I'd also be interested in making a Mead Appreciation club (if there isn't one already).

>the only reason they are doing gone homo is to push "progressive" identity politics in the classroom.

You're trying too hard. I'm not a fan of Gone Home (because a lot of media these days gets a free pass for including sexual minorities, but that's a topic for another day), but there is no conspiracy to introduce you to what you call "progressive" identity politics in your classes. Maybe you need to go back to rural Missouri or whatever backwoods bumfuck nowhere place you're from if you're not comfortable dealing with people who are different than you.

Um the EARLY GAT classes with Pondsmith had you take a quiz every Friday on a book about the history of board games you had to study.

You learned about nothing but historical board games and never ever ever played games. Senet was very important to my future career in games…
