Pulling Keycaps

Posted on Sep 21, 2017 10:20:31 AM by Gage Roland

Mechanical keyboards have grown in popularity over the years mostly by gamers and another niche group of mechanical keyboard enthusiasts that build and design their own keyboards. It’s not a cheap hobby, but learning about different materials, switches, keycaps, and aesthetics has become one of my favorite things. I decided to make a quick guide for either people looking to clean their mechanical keyboard or replace their keycaps. Some users recommend taking apart and cleaning the keyboard every six-to-twelve months, but it depends on the environment your keyboard is in and how strict you are about food and greasy fingers near your board. For this walkthrough, I'll be using a WASD v2 tenkeyless keyboard.

While there are more details to look into before adopting the Material principles, it is also important to learn about the different tools Google has or will be releasing to adopt their design flow.

Gaming Passion Series: Part 3 [Aesthetics]

Posted on Aug 18, 2017 9:14:21 AM by Jordan Leong in Blogs, in Game Art, in Game Art & Animation, in Game Design, in video game, in video game industry

Don’t you just love it when something looks pretty? When there is a cool image that just pops out and catches your eye? So do most gamers. In fact, with the latest advancements in the game industry, aesthetics have been a major focal point when attracting new audiences. No doubt that this strategy of showing off pretty aesthetics at conferences is an excellent form of promotion for the game, so long as they show those aesthetics in action. In this discussion, I’m going to go over what aesthetics offer the overall game and how important aesthetics are as a whole.

A Final Break

Posted on Aug 17, 2017 12:19:21 PM by Gage Roland in beach, in Student Life, in Break

Today I will finish my last final when I present a site that my team and I built this semester that interacts with an online database. Once that is completed, I can relax for a couple of days before heading home for a semester break. I am so excited to be going back home to Baton Rouge, for two weeks to see my family and friends. My niece turned two-years-old during this semester, so I am interested to see how much she's changed since I've last saw her.

Cinematography Finals Are Finally Here

Posted on Aug 16, 2017 10:21:06 AM by Jacob Turocy in Blogs

You may of gathered from the title.. it's Finals Week and I'm almost done.

This whole semester was one giant learning experience as I've had the chance to work on extraordinary projects. My favorite class so far has to be cinematography because I have been able to improve my camera skills. I discovered that I enjoy color grading and capturing sound effects. Below is a still image from one of my shorts from my final in cinematography. For this shot, I mainly focused mainly on smooth camera movement and wanted to make use of the overcast sky that was available to me. My goal was to be artistic and create a story with as few shots as possible. The fun part was editing the poem over it.

Sonic Mania

Posted on Aug 15, 2017 9:33:35 AM by Edward Cieslak in Blogs, in Sonic, in Sonic the Hedgehog

Whats up all my dudes and dudettes! Sonic Mania was released today I have to say I'm super excited for it!

I've been a Sonic fan for many years and in my opinion there hasn't been a good Sonic game released since Sonic 3 came out many years ago. I'll be playing the game over the weekend, so I'll most likely do a blog about it next week and give you my thoughts on the game.
