Excuse for Tardiness: Halo 3: ODST

I have a feeling I may be doing more of these posts then I would prefer this fall. Way too many good games are coming out. The wave of new games has begun (for me) with this title. Some of you may hate halo, some of you may not even know what I am talking about and some of you LOVE halo. I am number three, but I like to keep it low key (to prevent additional people from hating it). Maybe I have played all the games (with no sleep release night) and I might have read all of the books. Does that make me completely and utterly bias towards the series? YES!

Goto Shmoto

C++ was my first programming language. When I was going through school I can remember clearly the day that the keyword "goto" came up. The teacher said something along the lines of, "goto will jump to another section of code...just don't use it." At the time I had enough information I was trying to retain so that sounded good to me, just don't use it. My career continued, I never used goto, but it would come up from time to time. While working at my job, I came across code that used it. I just assumed no one told these programmers not to use it, but couldn't help but wonder, "How did goto get such a bad rap?"

Excuse for Tardiness: Plants vs. Zombies

The time block I have set aside to gather my thoughts into this blog is also the only time I can get me some gaming in. In an attempt to keep my blog alive I will make a post like this to tell you about the game I am currently playing that has prevented you from reading something maybe more interesting.

Beer of the Moment: Blackberry Witbier

Okay I'm getting burnt out with the technical writing. What better way to recover then with a refreshing beer. Every month I will mix things up with a quick post about the current brew that I have in the fridge. You may be asking, "What does this have to do with Game Development?" For some it may have nothing to do with it(sorry guys/gals), but for others it is a huge part.
