Hey guys, as usual I'll take some time to drop in (once every half year) with some things that probably won't interest you, but f-it it's a blog so I'll take advantage.

Capstone
I'm finally a senior at DePaul, so that means I get to go into my Capstone project! It's a 20 week course where we get to start a game from scratch and try to finish it in 20 weeks. It's a pretty intense task, but with the team I've got I'm sure we'll come out of it alive. I won't ruin the premise of the game we're working on just yet, but enjoy this list of game ideas we rejected:

* Pogo Stick platformer
* Vertical inline skate platformer
* Sling puzzle physics game
* Space Kansas
* Light Platformer
* 3D Planet Defense
* Color the world
* Good adventure game (Isometric)
* Vehicle based Bombing run
* Weapon Customization- the 2D version
* Party Managment
* Diner Dash, except with Urinals
* Sign Fighter
* Character Creation Game
* Hit 'em with a Salmon
* Draw ships->place weapons
* Shattered Horizon, but 2-D
* Tricycle racer
* Every Car is f-d up racer
* Getaway Driver
* Co-op Puzzle Game game on 1 board
* Cortex Command done right
* Flight Sim?
* 2-player dog fighter
* Collection-the game
* Mr Rogers flips his S***
* Kirby's Dream Course
* Fake sport we make up
* Cheese-it (canabalt style auto-run)
* Doom (4) [flashlight or shoot]
* The Amazing Race (ist)
If you wanna know about any of these games leave a comment (I know you won't) and I'll try to explain it in 1/2 sentences.


GDC
After saving up some cash money, I've finally gotten my plane ticket to GDC this year. I'm going to be working at the www.Gamedev.DePaul.edu booth so please feel free to stop by and have a chat. I should be wearing my Green DToid shirt one of the days so it'll (hopefully) be easy to recognize me.
I might do a daily blog from there (ala japan trip), but we'll see what happens when I get there.

Games
-Metroid Prime Trilogy stopped being printed so if you haven't- GO OUT AND GET IT! It's a great set of Wii (gamecube) games that is well worth the $50

-Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story was my favorite game of 09. I liked Uncharted 2 a lot, and it was really impressive, but Mario RPG made me laugh and kept me wanting to come back for more. (and it's a relatively long game considering the platform)

-I got an XBLA card for x-mas. Got Castlevania:SotN. I'm loving it so far. My only major concern is that the game never even gives you a hint of where you're supposed to go or what to do. All I want is a light tap in the right direction! I still have 900 points left and don't know what to get: Any suggestions?

-I'm a bad Chicagoan. It took me until 09 to find the retro/used game store (People Play Games). Minish Cap, Pilotwings, and Mischeif Makers are all currently on my "to play" list.

Well, until next time...

(No seriously, that's what I got when I googled "Adios Amigo")
