Speaking of school, I've gotten around to setting up a temporary site for the 'Unofficial' Seneca Game Design & Development Club
! I'm currently hosting it on a subdomain until I get the sense that it is serious enough for a full domain. I really hope that people join this summer, as I would like to begin to work on my game programming skills just with something simple. Perhaps Tetris or Brickbreaker with a twist. Shatter
is an awesome example of how you can take an old idea and execute it into something new and fun, and I don't think it would be too difficult to come up with something along these lines. I guess I'll have to wait and see how the next few weeks go.
There really is not enough time in the day to do everything I would like to. Aside from studying & recreational programming, I've been addicted to HBO's Six Feet Under
. The combination of dark and light humour, plus the incredible writing and hilarious dream sequences definitely make this one of the best shows I've had the pleasure to watch. I don't know how HBO does it, but they really know how to pick amazing shows to broadcast. This definitely gives me high hopes for the upcoming television adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire
Lastly, I ordered Red Dead Redemption
, the newest game by Rockstar. It looks like a mix between Deadwood
... which is awesome. I should be getting it either tomorrow or Wednesday. Hopefully I have time to play it in between school and everything else. Who else is for extending the amount of hours in a day to 48? ....anyone?
