    That's why you don't go for 'degrees' that actually have the word Game in them, she should have gone for a computer science degree, then not only would she have been qualified to design games, she would be qualified for a lot of other jobs and wouldn't have gotten stuck stripping.

    And this is the reason I do Application Programming/engineering, instead of game design.

    That sucks, she just fucked up her life. I'm sure that there would be plenty of other opportunities if she tried harder... [​IMG]

    What a sad ending... albeit slightly tragic-comic.

    (Of course, I just went for general computer science, since I want to aid others, not just make games. Sure, making games is an aid, but I am thinking more widely.)

    I wonder how many new visits Lido Cabaret will get now that this news is out?

    This is exactly what I did. I enrolled at my college as a game design/development major but when I went to register for my classes, I signed up for classes so I can get a Computer Science degree because I could still develop games AND I'd have something to back me up in case it doesn't go well for me. Cause with a CS degree, you can pretty much do anything that is related to computers.

    Tough, that what happens when you have a few college students who thinks its easy to get a job. That's why getting something like a editor, engineering, computers, electronics is a wise investment
