Week5: Agenda

  • 9am-10am: Play Bully
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!
  • 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?
    • e.g. Libraries protect challenges books, and increasingly films, audio, etc. Should they take a more active role in protecting challenged games (against bans, censorship, etc.)?
  • 10:30am-10:45am: Talk about presentations (and group assignments if any questions/issues)
  • 10:45am-12:00pm: Group work! (extra time today: it's our LAST CLASS before presentations)
