Self-Reflection of a Year in Globaloria

I know I have improved a lot in blogging skills because I looked back at some of my earlier posts and they were silly. I got better at getting stuff done on a deadline since this class, also I have gotten better at coding and memorizing what each code actually does, besides just copying and pasting and only relying on the wiki.

New Arms Bill In Congress Could Involve Major Sanctions On Russia

The article is about how Russia is sending weapons to Syria but America doesn't want Russia to send weapons to Syria. So America is practically begging Russia to stop shipping weapons, but Russia wont give up on Syria. So now since Russia is shipping all these weapons to Syria, it is the perfect place for a proxy war to go down.

Unknown man attacks women for being Muslim.

One day, while Heba Abolaban was walking her nine month old daughter in a stroller, she spotted a very angry looking man sprinting towards her. The male came up to her and punched her in the shoulder as hard as he could and screamed, "You terrorist are the reason why the Boston Bombings happened!". The woman was in shock and didn't exactly figure out what had happened until a few minutes after. When she did she immediately called the police and started crying. The police still haven't found the man responsible.

Paper Prototype

What problems did your Paper Prototype help you to solve with your game idea?

It was hard trying to think up of collectible items because there are fruit in the background that are not collectible but your main objective is to collect fruits and vegetables. So I had to make the collectibles bigger to make them stand out more.

Imagine Team Game

Who: Player Age Group
    I am thinking anyone.
          Skill Ability
     Little to no skill.
What: What will the player learn about your game topic?
    They will be learning about how to make healthier foods. Where: Where does your game take place?
     A farmers market.
            Describe the setting
     Tents everywhere with  a lot of hanging signs and gaps between tents you will have to jump.
How: How does your game teach the player about your topic?
It will teach them about how to make healthier alternatives and try to avoid bad foods.

Game Learning Topic

Explain the game topic you chose for your action mobile game.
 Healthy eating.

Tell me why you chose this topic. 
 Because  the number of over-weight Americans, is too dang high!

 How will you use the game mechanics such as moving, scrolling, avoiding and collecting objects - to educate players about your learning topic?
 I will make you have to avoid the unhealthy foods and try to collect the healthy foods all while having to parkour your way through the farmers market. The game controls I am thinking are going to be just a simple tap and a double tap and swipe.

PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4 looks like a huge advancement from when the PlayStation 3 came out. The PlayStation 3 only had a few new features. The PlayStation 4 has a whole lot more new things. The controller is kind of like a Xbox Controller mixed with a Wii mixed with a PSVita. But they did make lots of innovative things. Over all the PS4 sounds like a great new advancement for Sony.

Game Ingredients

Write about a problem you overcame while working on the code for one of your game ingredients.
I had a problem with the objects not showing up in the magnifying glass but it turns out that the alpha was at 100 percent besides 10 percent.
