Well what the H3ll is digipen, well it's a school for designing and playing video games. You can actually get a degree in gaming ,it's not call a gaming degree but ain't that some *****. I just read about this school that is located in Washington by the Nintendo HQ and down the street from MS. It was was issue 152 of EGM. I thought that was an interesting article. It cost $1200 a semester and many of the peeps get top notch jobs also. Anyone else hear of this school.

ya, i read an article about it years ago, it's in B.C. though, in Canada, maybe the one you're talking about is a new campus or something. It's a school sponsered by Nintendo.

Digipen also offers classes at a place called New Market Vocational Skills Center in Tumwater, WA. It is for high school students. I can try to find more information if you want, I live in WA.

They gave a list of other universities that offer different degrees in the same field but I did not write them down. But one was next to the Nintendo HQ. I'm talking right next door to the building. They say that 2600 people turn in applications but only 600 end up turning them in. And it has a dropout rate of 31%. They also go on to say that many people mistake the university and that is the reason why they don't turn them in.

Yes, it's a game development school in Washington. It's similar to Fullsail, another school like it, in Florida, in which I am planning on attending.

Digipen sounds like a really good school. I want to go there but, I'd rather go to Full SAil, a school that I'm planned on going to. Do developers get paid? You know, make a lot of money>

It's good to know there are a few potential game developers here, and not just gamers. :D Someone has to make these games, I hope I become that someone.

Unless you hit it big (slightly better odds than winning Powerball) game developers generally work longer hours for less money than other developers.
