Staying Busy

Father forgive me for I have sinned... it's been two weeks since my last post. Wait, two weeks?!? I know, it's terrible and I am ashamed (not terribly, but a little bit). Rest assured, despite my recent silence some good things are happening.

Firstly, I'm reading a new book titled Introduction to 3D Game Programming with DirectX 9.0c: A Shader Approach. As I learned last time, I'm going to avoid posting a book review until I've read it all the way through, but I will say that I'm on chapter six (of twenty-two) and learning some really cool things I plan to highlight in future posts.

Secondly, I've been playing some cool free online games over at Armor Games. One of my personal favorites is Crush the Castle and my wife, who loves hedgehogs, has been hooked on Hedgehog Launch. Check 'em out!

Finally, I've decided to create a clone of the classic Atari game Pong. For those who never played, you can play a version in your browser here using pop-up windows! Pong is a simple game that shouldn't require advanced concepts. I'm hoping to dress it up with some nice textures and add a twist or two.

So there's a few things keeping me busy. Stay tuned for Pong updates!
