I’m in College!

Sorry for being away so long. I’ve just been busy with all of my classes. My major is game design, and it’s very fun but challenging, like a good video game.   I’m learning about the business side of game development, production, and logic. The classes are put on teams, and I have to work with my teammate to get everything done. I get graded more by my peers than the instructor.  There is no problem at all while working with others, it will get me more experience. I will be gaining a lot of experience and resume builders though-out my classes. I will want to make my own games when I get free time or something, I don’t want to get bored.

Done With My Game Design Class

I have finally finished my game design class. After (around) 20 weeks of the class, I’m glad it is over with. It was just teaching the basics of what makes a good game good. And some techniques that past game designers used to make their games good.

I had to say, there was a lot of useless information in this class. The class should of done about implementing the techniques into a game. In the class, we used program called MultiMedia Fusion 2(MMF2). It’s a Drag&Drop event and actions program. I would recommend it to anybody new to game development. The only problem is, the free version is only a 30 day demo. In the class I made 3 different games, a tutorial game, a simple game, and a less simple game. It was fun coming up with new games and trying to get them to work, I guess.

I can share my final project from the class. I made it in the MMF2 demo but I ported it over to The Game Factory 2- Newgrounds Edition. The Game Factory 2- Newgrounds Edition exports the game to a SWF file that only works on Newgrounds. I will only have it in project stage because I don’t think it good enough to have it release on Newgrounds yet. I think I’m gonna recreate the game with another program like gamesalad.

I’m Back for real.

Heylo, I’m back, and gonna stay for awhile. I know I said that in my post before on my blog, but this time I mean it. I promise at least 1 or more posts a week until August. I will talk about video games, gaming news, and other pop culture goodness.

My gaming news website is postpone for a while, don’t know when or even if it will start up. It would be fun to have one, but I don’t know too much about website design. And free time would be a little bit harder to find now. If it does start up, it will probably be in the Summer. Hopefully I will have extra money and equipment to make it the best quality possible.

It got postpone because I moved onto different projects and stuff… I recently enrolled into a “game design” class.  It tells me what makes a good game good, and what everything is in a game. You know, nothing I could of learned by PLAYING games for YEARS.  I designed my first game, which I can’t upload to any site. It took me 2 weeks, and it’s a very simple game. I’m worried how long it will take me to design a game with 3 levels, for my final project. It might sound like I’m complaining about(I am) but I love it. This is my first real step to becoming a game designer. I’m on an “anime quest” to become the best game designer EVER!

(Uncle’s voice)One more thing, I will be doing gaming youtube videos in the Summer. It will be random gameplay, reviews, and anything about gaming I want to upload. I will share the “good” videos here, so you all can enjoy. 🙂

Thanks for reading.

I’m Back!

I’m back from being dead for ten months. Hopefully I stay alive for awhile and start posting more and more. I missed posting news and my predictions(that was half right and half wrong). I laugh when I look back on older posts, because of how many grammar mistakes and just bad writing. lol

I’m also back to say, I have a crazy idea I want to happen. I will like to start a video game news website. The website will cover all major gaming news, and maybe start a community.  I’m still trying to figure on how it will happen, but I know one thing, I need people to help me start and make it grow. This is when YOU come along, if you think you can volunteer and help out, it will really help. I’m looking for writers, news seekers, and possibly community managers to help. You can help out and not have to make any commitment, you can write 1 article , if you really wanted and not do anything else.

If you are interested in joining, you can leave a comment and we can discuss it from there.

Thanks for reading. 🙂

NOPA to SOPA

I know this is late, but better late than never. SOPA/PIPA will allow the US government and copyright holders shut down any website because they think the website is breaking copyright law or the user content is breaking copyright law. A website should not be punished for user-generated content.

Here’s a video explaining it better.

On January 18. the Internet blacked out.  The Internet protested the bills by blacking out their websites, it showed what would happen if the bills get passed. Over 115,000 websites joined the protest, too bad I didn’t join… More than 10,000,000 people signed the petition, it’s not too late sign https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/. This was the largest Internet protest.

The protest did help a lot. Many congress switched their opinions on the bills. The Entertainment Software Association withdrew their support of the bill. They were kinda the voice of the gaming industry, they got the message the gaming community does not want the bills passed. There was talk about boycotting their biggest source of money, E3. I don’t if other people are still boycotting E3, but I am covering it because of this. The bills are shelved, but they may return secretly and try to be passed, we must pay attention to it. (My bad writing)

Thank You and Happy New Year!

I have been blogging for everyday of the year. If I missed a day, I blogged early the next day. I would like to thank everyone who read my blog. I would say 2011 was a successful year for A Gamer’s Blog. I am glad I did my last year’s resolution.

This year’s resolutions is to put more work and quality in to my projects. I’m probably not going blog everyday but I will put more quality into my posts. I will not spam my blog with pointless and lazy posts like I did last year. I will try to make myself to have 3-5 posts a week.

I hope everybody has a good year.

Thanks for reading.

I was trying to stream a game but the program was acting up. I got maybe 3 minutes then it just failed 5 times, when I was streaming, it was fun. I would like to stream games but I don’t know how to fix the problem.

Sorry for the short post but thanks for reading.
