    Hey guys, so I added some content to my paper towards the end, let me know what you think!

    So this happened last week, might be interesting to talk about…[Read more]

    • Yeah. I’ve been following this for awhile due to my twitterfeed.

      A few women game developers quit over the harassment apart of Gamergate and there have been a few that have been run out of their homes due to the harassment.

      I feel like this is another lesson of the banality of evil, that evil acts aren’t done by zealots and fanatics, but by…[Read more]

    • Saw this article as well. I have not watched the talks Anita gives, but a lot of people in the comment section dismissed the nature of the threats and instead commented that Anita is the worst kind of feminist/is a terrible person, etc. when she is voicing a perspective that -while might be extreme in comparison to some- obviously resonate with…[Read more]

    Hey, I don’t know if we need to give feedback on the recent drafts or not so I’m just gonna do it anyways. Let me know if you guys need anything. Shengsheng, I haven’t seen your paper so if you could upload it here or to google docs that would be great!

    Ok, so my paper is almost 8 pages, but I am going to be out of town this weekend for a wedding, I will do my best to give feedback but it may be a little late and for that I apologize. Please give me feedback so I can try to work while I’m away. Hope you have a good fall break!

    • I’ll take another look at it but I’ll be in california this weekend. Mine is bout 7.5 right now. Tell me what you think of mine too!

    Shengsheng, I couldn’t comment on your paper but I think you’ve got a good start, I haven’t seen much of your experience yet or Gee’s principles, I think once those are added you’ll be on your way to a great paper!

    That was a big question for me as well, they only used boys in their experiment and like you said the contrast in opinion would be really interesting. From the game-play I have watched women aren’t portrayed very well and to hear an opinion from a black female about how they are portrayed in the game would be something to hear, especially from…[Read more]

    Everett and Watkins:
    When they discuss the idea of learning race they mention a couple of other authors that say we need games that tell and do, can someone give me an example of the type of game they are talking about? Does that type of game they discuss even exist yet?
    I also have to say that when it comes to GTA, being a frequent spectator to…[Read more]

    I would ask Adam, I had no trouble with my picture, everything looks great!

    • Eric replied 4 years ago

      I had the same exact problem. If you find out mind posting it here?

  • Torrie posted a new activity comment 4 years ago

    Hey i think this looks good, just fix your picture and finalize the product. I didn’t see anything but spell check is always your friend so don’t forget to check!

  • Hey so I know i’m way early for putting in the draft but I wanted to get it done, please feel free to provide as much feedback as possible!

    We also only used sets I don’t think anyone had a book because we were working on getting rid of the oil cards

  • Torrie posted a new activity comment 4 years ago

    One other thing add would be to use cards outside the deck or maybe end up using two decks? Part of our problem was that we didn’t have enough cards.

    Disaster game:

    Instead of normal go fish we add cards that created your oil spill, the goal was then to get pairs or books in order to clean up the cards and the goal of the game became to get rid of the oil cards rather than collect the most pairs or get rid of your hand first. Certain pairs were worth certain amounts of cards or oil that got…[Read more]

    Barab (2004)
    Just to make sure I understand a critical design ethnographer, as what you want us to be for this class is a person who is trying to change a certain aspect of society without seeming like someone who wants to control everything? We are supposed to make connections with people and the community and find positive ways to change it…[Read more]

    • MMOG means massive multiplayer online game and World of Warcraft would certainly count as an example.
