    Hey, I made everyone’s .docx into a google doc so we can all comment on it. 😀

  • I updated it a little bit and it’s in .pdf to preserve the format!

  • Impact Guide for Pokemon X and Y

  • Here is my potentially finished impact guide. When submitting it, we email the professor directly, right?

    • I thought your guide was fantastic. I literally have no true criticisms to give, except maybe you may want your quote to be by a real person to give it more validity. And yes, we e-mail once we’re done

    • Awesome guide and yeah like Jacob said just send it to the professor. Just a suggestion send it as a .pdf, helps preserves the reading format.

  • Hey all, I figured it out. Any advice for my rough draft? I can’t figure out how to change the game picture or the description at the bottom lol.

    • I think it’s very good and he sent an email out on how to change the picture and etc. You just double click on it. Picture I had to drag it over and make it smaller when I move it to word.
      I would suggest one more bullet point for World Connections, but otherwise very well done.
      Oh change the color of the background from gray to white might be a…[Read more]

    Hey all, I have my rough draft completed, but I don’t know how to post it to the group. Anyone know how?

    Hi Elite 4,

    I’m giving feedback on the Half-life 2 pitch. I’m struggling to see how you’ll be able to connect the game to the impact areas and themes you’ve called out beyond the surface level. In part because the game-play is on rails, so there is very little choice as you point out in the justification of how the game could be about engaged…[Read more]

  • Impact Guide Pitch for Half Life 2.
    The themes are: Engaged Citizenship and Cultural Emergence

  • Jacob Robson posted an update in the group Group logo of The Elite 4The Elite 4 3 years, 9 months ago

    So it seems like the themes we discovered, and the themes that apply the best for our games are Engaged Citizenship for HL2, and Environmental Sustainability for Pokemon. Everyone in agreement? Who wants to get started on the Pokemon proposition? I am doing the Half Life proposition as I type this.

    Playing through Pokemon, I noticed the game can be categorized under several impact areas. The most prominent impact area is engaged citizenship due to the fact that the concept of Pokemon in its entirety can be summarized by the very definition the impact area. In Pokemon X and Y specifically, the player works together with their group of friends…[Read more]

    • I didn’t think about engaged citizenship. I could see that working. I too thought that Environmental Sustainability would work because of Team Flare’s goals and the obvious one, Pokemon themselves, and how a major theme of all Pokemon games, not just X and Y, is living side by side in balance with pokemon, which can be seen as living in balance…[Read more]

    So I played Half Life 2, and I was thinking, it might be a little harder than we thought to do an impact guide on it. I mean, it’s still going to be totally possible, our theme questions are going to look pretty cool, but the game basics section will be pretty barebones. There isn’t much player agency until later in the game. It’s a simple enough…[Read more]

    • Agreed, the mechanics are pretty simple and for the player guide we should and could just have the same mechanics and expand upon different themes.
      Probably something like:
      From what point of view is the game played?
      What controls does it use?

  • Kyle Myers posted an update in the group Group logo of The Elite 4The Elite 4 3 years, 9 months ago

    Hey everyone, I’m just making a post to confirm that the two games we chose are Half-Life 2 and Pokemon X/Y. The themes for both games will revolve around engaged citizenship.
