    Hey guys sorry i missed class this week. I had a family emergency and had to be home for a few days. Is there anything I need to know from the missed class. From what i see we need to do the think aloud post on an hour of our game time. Anything else?

    I couldn’t figure out how to change the picture. It wouldn’t let me.

    • Changing the picture is tricky. In order to change it, you need to “Unprotect” the document (under the tools menu), then change the image, then “Protect” the document (select the “forms” option). It isn’t required to do this though.

    Looks Great Janelle.
    Your questions tie in well with your theme and push the player to think more.

  • Check it out let me know what you think.

      Patrick–
      When I open this I just get the original blank template. Either you uploaded the wrong file or something is dreadfully wrong on my side!

    • Hi Patrick, this is showing up fine on my computer. A few notes: Might want to change the photo. Also, you should run the doc through spellcheck, there are a few errors popping up (i.e. ‘Involvment–>Involvement). In the ‘Why Use This Guide’ section, the first sentence is duplicated. Overall, I only see some technical errors. Your guide ties in…[Read more]

        I’m glad it’s working for you, Janelle. I still get just the template.
        I use Open Office at home. I’ll try to open it on my office computer at school on Tuesday, just to confirm if my home system is the problem. Sorry I’m not contributing, Patrick!

      When I open this on my computer at the office, it’s all there. So I’m guessing my problem is Open Office.

    So we have the two guide pitches. Shall I send them to Adam now?

  • Check it out let me know what you think!

      Above and beyond the call of duty, Patrick. Looks terrific.

    Sorry I am late had a very busy week.

    Game: Scribblenauts

    Impact Areas:
    Educational Relevancy- The game teaches you basic and advanced grammar. It uses the scenarios so that you can think up words to create objects and then use other words to change those objects. Like a dragon can become a tiny wingless dragon.
    It also teaches creative…[Read more]

      Sounds interesting for a word-enthusiast like me, Patrick.

      So would you say that getting involved in your community and “creating things is fun” are some possible themes?

    • Your selections for areas impact look good! Can you see yourself writing a guide for this game, and were you able to come up with any questions that can guide a player’s thinking/perspective of the game?

      • Janet replied 4 years ago

        I think it’s worth a guide. I have a couple of pages of notes and you had good questions, so we could probably do something with this.

        • Janet replied 4 years ago

          IGNORE THAT note! I thought we were “talking” about Million Years. Apply above note there!

        • Hi Janet! That message was actually for Patrick; but I agree! I think it would be very simple for us to make a ‘Million Years’ impact guide with our notes.

          • I just got done playing Scribblenauts Unmasked and it was the same theme. Helping people and teaching a diverse vocabulary grammar. I think it would be good for a guide. In Scribblenauts Unmasked all of your boss battles involve helping others to defeat an enemy.

    I think that is a very good point Janet. The new play will have a much different experience than the veteran player. Working around that can be hard. I think that for some things you can set a pretty basic guide that will help both types but some things are very hard to grasp for new players. Case in point Minecraft Farming. It takes quite a bit…[Read more]

    Also what’s up Jeff Holmes. I took your Games and Rhetoric class a couple semesters ago. In case you forgot. Great class by the way guys I highly recommend it!

    I posted my Mincefraft Impact Guide answers in documents and the Forums.

    Build a crafting table. How do you do it?
    To build a crafting table you first have to get wood by chopping down a try. You then have to turn those Wood Blocks into Wood Planks. To do this you enter the Inventory and select the Wood Blocks and place them in the Crafting area to make the Planks. Then place the…[Read more]
