LONG BLOG

Almost a year

   0
So, I have almost completed my first year at uni, doing Games Design (Bsc) at The University of Bolton. Can't believe how much I have done in one year!

The modules that I have completed so far are: Game Art 1, Games Design 1, Synth and MIDI, Games Evaluation, and Games Scripting 1. I have made 3D models and textures which worked in the UT3 editor, I have made game trailer music for Prince of Persia and Medal of Honour, I have done EXTREMELY short reviews for indie games such as N, and I have coded my own Robot in Robot battles (which ranked very high in the in-class battles ;P)!

I never thought I would learn so much about games and their developers in one year, but realising how much I've learnt, I am excited about learning more! Hopefully in my next uni year, I'll be making more complex levels in UT3, maybe in Hammer too. I also can't wait to learn more scripting, so I can start making some simple games in Flash. :D

I think everyone who enjoys games, and is looking for a career in games should take up this course. Also, from doing this course I have found that opportunities have been jumping at me. xD A few people in my class got picked to do some games testing for 'iPlay', but what started as one game being tested is now 3 and counting! :D So getting my name in the credits for testing may help me start my professional career. :)

Anyways, everyone should do something this fun. ^_^

(Sorry for ranting on a little, heh)

About Misstawniione of us since 7:59 AM on 05.22.2009

Well, my name is Shauni Maple. I am 20yrs of age. AND I FUCKING LOVE GAMES.



I've been playing video games since the age of three, and to this day I am constantly playing games; I am a hardcore fan of RPGs and JRPGs. However I do like classic point-and-click games, like Grim Fandango, Curse of monkey Island. Diskworld is pretty neat too. I have played every Final Fantasy game, and beaten 1 through 10-2. ;3 (Some 100%). And my boyfriend has gotten me into rhythm games like, DDR, Elite Beat Agents, etc etc.

The consoles I've own/ed are:
-Sega Megadrive
-SNES
-Nintendo 64
-Playstation X
-Playstation 2 & PS2 Slim
-Gameboy colour
-Gameboy Advance
-Gameboy Advance SP
-Gameboy Micro
-DS
-DS Lite
-Xbox 360
-Playstation 3
-PSP
-(SOON TO BE) 3DS

... I think that is all of them. xD

My favourite Games are: Final Fantasy series, Kingdom Hearts Series, Eternal Sonata, Tales of saga, Chrono Trigger, any Mario games, Phoenix Wright Series, Pokemon <3, Grim Fandango, Sims, Rockband/Guitar Hero, Grand Theft Auto, etc etc.

But yeah, living in the UK is fun, due to being able to do Games Design at Bolton University <3 Game releases can be awful over here though!

Aswell as loving video games, I love anime, manga, drawing and anything Japanese really. :P I also love my wonderful Boyfriend of 4yrs and 5months, who is doing Computer Software and Development at Bolton University.
