Digipen Fall 2007 - END!

I'm Still Alive!

Horray I'm done for the year! Well sort of but mostly :)
The last week and a half has been brutal. Game First playable submission, 2 projects, and 2 reports. I still have to compile my thesis survey report over the break but that shouldn't be so bad.

My last 2 projects were a bit crazy, well one of them was. I had to write a graphics program using a shader (read programming the graphics card) to do fancy stuff. Here are some pictures!

The graphical effects I added were Dynamic Lighting, Soft Shadows and Anti Aliasing. The project is a jeep (with siren lights) going around the city with a spot light (from the helicopter) following. Took a tonne of work and theres alot of improvements I could do but its the best I could do given my deadline :)

Good news from the Nicole front, well news in progress. Interviewing with MS, 1 inperson interview (failed), 1 phone (passed) and another three hour interview (TBD). Unfortunately Nicole gets super stressed and nervous during interviews but things seemed to be going well from my perspective.

Gaming wise, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles is great fun, especially multi player. Same with GH3! (WTB extra Guitar). The Wii has the ability to recreate the light gun / shooter games with 100% accuracy. Its great and I'm having a blast.

Coming back to Calgary on Saturday to a no internet parents place :(
Posts will probably be lacking but I'll be relaxing! I plan on playing thru Mario Galaxy, RE4: Wii edition and maybe finish paper mario.

Anyway, for all you Calgary folk who actually read this, send me your phone numbers (again). I've probably them again.

PS: Flames beat Lightning 9-6.. thats a crazy score. Hat tricks from Iggy and Juice. Yeesh
