    Anyone else going to Abertay/ at it already? I'll be taking direct entry to Comp Games App Dev Yr 2.

    Also, what sort of facilities does the place have for us roaring game geeks? I know you're all out there!

    Abertay is THE place for 'roaring game geeks' - There are now 3 'White Spaces' that are full of Dev Kits and other endless equipment. Got a few friends doing CGT, they all really enjoy it - I did the first 2 years of it then transferred to Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures, and I did enjoy what I did of it - just wasnt my thing


    As for freshers.... I may know a few things going on..... working in the Student Centre has its benefits

    Hehehe - I know who you are Laura - We've even spoken (and not just in the student centre)



    Also, freshers last year was so ****!! Compared to the previous years anyway. But I know the President and VP of this year personally, and man do they have some awesome plans to make this year awesome!!! This year's freshers is gonna be awesome from what they've told me so far! (especially if you like dance music )

    Only if you're doing one of the computer-oriented courses - then obviously the people are going to be geeky lol... though in saying that, I'm in the Hacking Course and myself and about 3 others are just about the least geeky people you can find!

    Oh man.... I just left Abertay doing CGAD. :rolleyes:

    I don't know but year 1 was ****. I believe you get some PS2/Xbox dev kits in Year 2....
    Luckily I'm skipping year 1 entirely. The advantages of doing a compsci degree's first two years twice I guess...

    What ARE the plans for Freshers'? TELL US DAMMIT. I'm a gamer, but I still want to get ********* and do the robot.

    I think we'll get along nicely then :cool:

    He's a ****. The word starts and ends with a T.

    That's why it's such a great idea to get him - people hate him so much they will want to hate him in person! lol:yes:

    Clues are for suckas, as Mr. T would say.

    I'll probably treat Fresher's like a music festivals- wander around seeing random stuff, talking to randoms, and occasionally slip back to base camp to neck some booze on the cheap.

    Why can't we get Wolverine from Big Bro in? He's the only one I recognise. After my first halls experience a show about a bunch of reprobates in a confined space making tits of themselves while shagging and wrecking the place lacks appeal.

    A mate of mine stayed in Courthouse last year and it wasn't that great to begin with, but I think they got most of the issues sorted (it was privately managed and the university ended up getting involved IIRC).
    I think it's managed by the university this year, so it should be better, as Abertay's accommodation department seem to be quite good.
