Library of Congress Classification System Game - Will Fox News Find Fault?

January 29, 2008 -
Within Range?

Sounds like a great title for a first-person shooter.

Not quite. The edu-game, created by students at Carnegie-Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center, is designed to teach players how the Library of Congress classification system works. And even Fox News can't whine about that.

Probably...

Check it out.

This game's great. Gonna have to pass it around to my coworkers at my library. Thanks Dennis!

Awwwwwwwww... Let's the leave the gal alone, she did take back what she said about Mass Effect. xD

But beware, a Florida attorney is not gonna like this game I think. :P

Come on now, she apologized and retracted her statements. It's not like she's Jack Thompson or Kevin McCullough.

Worst...game...ever.

(This one got greenlighted on Fark.com a week or so ago.)

Not bad for a younger audience just learning about the system.

Not to mention that, in a sense, it teaches about two dimensional arrays as well.

I like the idea. It is much better than a pamphlet that may or may not help you understand.

We need a dewey decimal game now.

I interned at a library. Basically, my entire internship consisted of checking to see if books were in the right place, as well as putting them back into place.

... Towards the end of it, I just stopped caring. I'd put them back into the right place, but when it came time to scan the shelves my eyes would glaze over and I would go through the motions, without even SEEING the labels. Once I got between two shelves, I'd find an interesting book and read. The Biography section was the worst, no shelves opposite each other, I couldn't read.

Nice change in the article, GP

I almost didn't notice. ;)

yes, I too am beginning to feel sorry for Ms. Lawrence, so I've revised the headline to reflect where the blame should truly reside.

And you thought I had no heart...

;-)

I LOVE FOX NEWS!

I wonder if they could teach me how my University library sorts out its collection of books. For one paper I was researching, I found one book that was a hardcover version of another book I had found, and each was catalogued in completely separate isles.

For a moment I thought this would be about an LoC type of system to classify video games.

GP, I get it, you don't like Fox News, but what do they have to do with this game, if you can call it that? I understand the need to vent, but this is getting ridiculous.

This is a porn finder trainer...

It trains our poor innocent children how to find books of adult nature in a library!!!!

This is the worst most explicit game I have ever seen!!!

We must Ban it!!!
/sarcasm end

At this point I think a rant like this by 'experts' is not out of the question...

OMG! Porn is in the coding that can only be unlocked by adding coding that was deleted by the creators!
/end sarcasm

Lets beat them to the punch of blatant lies.

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm

Papa MidnightSure thing!03/27/2015 - 9:00pm
Andrew EisenPM - Thanks, I've updated the story.03/27/2015 - 8:59pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm
