The Discovery Science Center’s Pumpkin Launch was a great success! We had 10 wonderful members from both VGDC and ACM who came out to help with our black pants and CSUF ECS T-shirts! I hope everyone had a great time helping out the little kids who came to our booth and dodging rouge balls from their catapults. We made a clear presence today to both the Science Center, our College. Many of the attending families were very interested in both our department and our club which shines a fair light on us. Therefore, I think we did a very good job!
Both AMES and SWE both managed to built catapults for their clubs and won second and third place respectively. If you see them around campus, be sure to congratulate them for their representation of the club and our college!
Hope everyone had a fun time! I look forwards to our next club event with you all!
Thank everyone for coming out and attending out annual Game Jam! We had a great many teams along with very many beginning programmers and artists working with great and experience pre-existing members of both PMC and VGDC.
Congraduations to all our teams this time for their participation!
*** If you want your project on the website, please contact Allen Hsu or our team email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The semester is starting again and that means DISCOVERFEST! Come visit our booth #33 right in the center of the quad. Our battle station will be right beside our two sister clubs, the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Pencil Mileage Cub (PMC). You’ll be able to register directly at the table, meet some of the officers and club members, and perhaps witness the elusive Gangnam Style dance.
On the night of July 27th VGDC Members met in a glorious competition of peace at CSUF VGDC’s summer Game Night. Friendships were soon shattered as games of Mario Party and Magic broke out amongst the once-companions. Friendship casualties included Allen Hsu and Ricardo Cancela, who soon became mortal enemies after Hsu landed on a Bowser space and stole Cancela’s star. However, the friendship was amended once Ricardo settled the score. Overall, the night was full of friendly competition and vendettas that will surely be concluded at future game nights this semester! Thanks to all who came out for the festivities!

We took our 2012 club photo on April 4th. Everyone received their club t-shirt that day and posed in the sun until we got a shot that was just right. Club Secretary Troy Stump arrived late and had to be photoshopped in later. A 24″ x 32″ poster was printed and is now proudly displayed in the VGDC Club Room.
This year’s game night was a huge success. Everyone brought their tvs, game systems, and controllers and battled it out with games like mario kart and super smash bros. Projectors were set up for the kinect games, Daniel Lyons brought … Continue reading →
