Welcome to a New Semester of Gaming!

Our January meeting will be Friday, Jan. 27th at 5pm in SH 326.  Our topic will be: “Gaming is Dangerous! Gaming Frees us all!…  Or, yeah, it’s probably something In-Between.” We’ll be discussing Toby Miller’s short 2006 piece, “Gaming for Beginners,” for those of you who want to read it, and we’ll be playing a variety of games, from Pong to QWOP.

So, we hope you’ll join us as we discuss the utopic and dystopic of studying video games.  All levels of gamers (and those interested in gaming culture) are welcome, from absolute beginners to the truly hard core.


Our December meeting will be on Friday, Dec. 9th at 5pm in State Hall 326. 

Ph.D. student Matt Linton will be presenting on Fighting Games.

Have a favorite fighting game you’d like us to try out during our discussion?  Bring it along–we have an Xbox 360 as well as a PlayStation 4 ready and waiting.
