Our Beta presentation was yesterday and it went really well. We don't get feedback until next Wednesday since Monday is Memorial Day out here. At first the test machine we were all using to present from was playing up so none of the games anyone had produced would run properly, but everyone seemed to handle the situation well. Our build is pretty stable and really just needs some little things worked on like units getting stuck on each other and some HUD tweaks.
I managed to find a place to live in California for when I move, but it has been a stressful week trying to sort all of that out, and now it turns out getting my Visa is a nightmare in terms of timing, but I'm sure everything will work out.
The IGDA have finally put up the GDC reports from us scholarship winners, so you can go and read mine if you fancy it.

I didn't realise it had been so long since I last posted on here. Things have been going well. Final Project is rocking along nicely but Beta turn-in happens on Monday. Problem is I have to take a few days off to head out to California to find a place to live since I signed my contract with EA and will start the first week of August.
Other things I have seen and done include a load of movies, ("Lucky Number Slevin", "The Sentinel" and "M:I:III",) a rocket launch here on the coast, and seeing Mum and Louise during spring break. Other than that it is mostly work, and I need to get back to it.
