Week5: Agenda

This will be our last workshop before the presentations, so let's make sure we set aside some time to chat about what's expected, and for your groups to sort out any remaining logistics. We'll also put aside a good amount of time for group work, so make sure you bring some prepared questions/issues for the discussion component so that we can keep it short, sweet and to the point. Like last week, we'll start with gameplay.

NOTE: The graphics cards in these computers aren't quite able to display the cut-scenes. For instance, when you start your game running, there's a short movie introduction - the visuals will lack colour and show up all wonky. You can skip it or listen to the audio. Once the gameplay starts, everything seems to be okay - so just get through that first part and you should be good to go!

  • 9am-10am: Play Bully
  • 10am-10:30am: Discussion about videogame controversies; how this links back to earlier discussions about ESRB ratings, story, etc. 
    • Q: What do you think the role of the library should be in addressing and/or responding to these types of controversies?
  • 10:30am-10:45am: Talk about presentations (and group assignments if any questions/issues)
  • 10:45am-12:00pm: Group work!
