Teachers know Wii is not Next gen
Back to school, back to school, to prove to my resume, that I’m not a fool.
So I was 15 classes shy of graduating with a degree titled Bachelor in Computer Information Technology: Computer Graphics blah blah blah.
With my employer paying the bill and 13 left I am on my way to getting the piece of effin paper that I hate to need.
Now, to my story…
Yesterdays class was Texture for 2-D/3-D, which is nothing more than a Photoshop class with a little Maya mixed in. We will learn to make textures to apply to video games and models for animation. Some of the stuff the teacher’s last class did was take screens from old…OLD games and make textures and remake the screen shot for today’s graphics. I.E. they did Kid Icirus and made the game look modern. At the end of the semester we will bring get a screen of a next gen game and recreate our own version.
“So by next gen you mean 360, PS3 and not Wii”, I shout out.
“Why the hell would you want to make Gamecube games when you could make photo realistic PS3 and 360 games. Why not make a game for the N64, or PS1 while your at it?” the teacher throws back.
At this point a group of people say “Hey, I like my Wii, but the graphics do blow.”, or they say “Pft, Game Cube 1.5”.
These are future developers of the industry Nintendo. Even your fans know you blow. Is that why you are pushing away the hardcore gamers?
