    Game Institute (again)

    Yeah, agree; but I just want to start a long term project, that's why I'm following a C# course (basic) ...you're right. I have to think a while before doing it. OK, sounds great. I'd really love to make something on my own! That's why I thought I could buy GameInstitute's books, but it seems they are a bit outdated, aren't they? But their courses seem really huge and I'd not want to miss the chance to get  them, if I can ever work something out from them. I don't know if they are (still?) great  Both GameInstitute and 3DBuzz?

    So, what do you think? Give me your opinion

    Game Institute (again)

    Sure, I'm going to the university in 2 months. But as some users suggested, I should get some projects done while I'm there, for my CV. So I wanted to know if they're a good start.

    Game Institute (again)

    Thanks for your reply.  Well, learn how to code (I've started with C# now, but as far as I know, there's no big difference right now as I'm at classes and objects) and start coding games. Final aim: Blizzard / Riot Nearer aim: game developer
  5. So, I've been reading some posts all over the internet and on this forum, too. But they are (almost all) quite old, so I decided to ask again. What do you think about GameInstitute? Is it still worth (49$ at the moment I'm writing)? Are they updating their courses?   I'm actually having a look at 3DBuzz, too.. if anybody has some comments on these, let me know

    Java or Python

    Well, it is quite old (2002) and based on C# 3.0 (5.0 now, if I'm right). I'll check something else and have a look at the reviews.     Just looking for something, not only among high-level languages.  Now you make me have doubts about Python or C#. This game won't ever start Ps. I don't understand why my above post has -1 :( is it because it was a bit off topic?

    Java or Python

    I've noticed: http://www.amazon.com/s/url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=c%23 This seems a good book, even if some say it's better "Head First C#". I don't know if I should study on a newer book (that one is from 2012, but things go fast). What would you recommend? I think I'll go with this path. There are many books I can buy to code games (1, 2, 3, ...) and having a good understanding of the language should help... even if, if you didn't tell me it was better, I'd have chosen the second path.

    Java or Python

    Another user said it before, and it's true; I'm only looking for something to start with, but I'm planning on studying on my own during and post -uni. I have "Visual C# 2010" I've never read. Is it the right book to start with? Can you suggest anything better? Or even another language? I'm stuck on those questions

    Java or Python

    For sure, that was an option. Oh, I understand. I didn't see many great games made with Java, too. Is C# a good language? Really, I've read some bad reviews. Also, I don't know if it'd be better to start with it or with Java. What about Python? Nobody seems to go for it as a first choice to get into game dev. I had in mind to go with it so I could also code for web and other software in general. Should I make a pool to see what the result would be?

    Java or Python

    Awesome! I didn't know it! Does Unity support Java, too? I've read C# isn't a good option. I'd go for Java maybe, if it's supported

    Java or Python

    Yeah, I noticed ;) So, Java knowing my aims? Don't know yet I don't know anything about game engines
  12. fiesil

    Java or Python

     Blizzard and Riot are my aims, really. Not saying I don't want to start from below, I do! They are just my goals. I know about Python being used almost everywhere, even if not as the main language; though I'm starting university within 2 months, so I don't really have time to do a long-time project to finish BEFORE joining the university. Instead I'm looking for something to go along with for months.   That's cool! I didn't know about it. Though it seems there are many disadvantages if I study Java as I've read in the article I posted above. That's why I decided to ask here!

    Java or Python

    I want to start coding on my own before (and during and after) university, so I just said what courses I can choose. I know C++ is actually very used (about 80% maybe) in the gaming industry, but it's been told to me not to directly start with it.   I meant I can improve, starting from a 2D little game to something bigger. Or maybe a 3D game, too

    Java or Python

    Hi everybody! I need to start with a language. I've read the article What Language Do I Use? and I'm now deciding between Python and Java. Depending on the course I'll take (I'm about to start university), I'll learn Java+C (from the first year) or C++ (from the second year), but they are two different courses and I can't choose Java+C and C++. Aims? Blizzard or Riot. I know it's gonna be tough, but I'll run as fast as I can. From graphic-less games to 2D games to something better and better. If you recommend another language (possibly not C#, as I've read some bad reviews), go ahead!  Feel free to ask any question!
