Getting Back On the Horse

A couple nights ago, I attended another Cleveland Game Developers meeting and it really inspired me to get back into learning C# and XNA. Life has finally gotten back to a manageable pace so fitting in the tutorials should be easier. I took the first step last night by popping in my 3D Buzz tutorial DVD's and getting wet. When I last left off, I was towards the beginning of the second disc. Also, I've decided that this time I will keep a notebook and start jotting down things in the hopes that it will help me retain what I'm learning. Perhaps treating it like an actual class will keep it in my head and on schedule.

Also, really need to add some art or something to this blog. Its so drab looking. Kind of bums me out.

Star Command

Came across a pretty cool new iOS game that mixes Game Developer Story with Star Trek. I'm pretty sure that combination sells itself, but I've attached the Kickstarter trailer to help. As someone that really enjoyed Game Developer Story, I can't help but be really excited for this one. Take a look: Star Command

As far as my own work goes, a recent move has occupied a lot of my time. I'm hoping to get life and furniture situated so that I can jump back into the 3D Buzz videos. At this point, I'm a little worried that my hiatus will keep me from remembering everything I've leaned. I might have to make a schedule and dedicate myself to spending the necessary amount of time to continue. At the very least, I'd like to continue with the asset creation. With any luck, I should have some more of that posted soon.
