A professor teaching a class this semester that frequently meets in the CVGA has been making good use of our Assassin's Creed games in his class, so we've decided to fill in our collection, purchasing some Assassin's Creed titles that haven't been as highly requested in the CVGA, but still add to the series.
The CVGA has quite a few new games available for play. We also have a Nintendo Switch available, with several games to go with it. Did you know that there's an RSS feed on our main page that lists all games that were recently added to our collection? Check out our main page for more details.
Still trying to figure out your Fall class schedule? We may not have a fully devoted video games studies program at present, but there are a number of classes available to study video games this Fall. Try one of them to round out your schedule! Use the links below to see a full class description of each class listed here.
Summer term has begun, and with it our reduced hours of operation. We'll be open Monday - Friday 1-5pm through August 18th, when the term ends. Then we'll be closed for the intercession, and will reopen with the start of the Fall term. So enjoy the outdoors, and don't forget to play some video games during the afternoon heat while you still can.
The heat wave we're having outside is the perfect time to hang out in the air-conditioned CVGA to check out the new games that just arrived for the PlayStation VR that we got towards the end of the Winter term.
Here is our list of most popular games during the Winter term. We had our usual blend of sports games and first person shooters at the top of the list, with a roleplaying game and several games for the Wii & Wii U making an appearance as well. Our PlayStation 4 consoles were popular during the term, but didn't make the list because people tended to try several different games on them rather than focusing on just one, as was the case for the Xbox One.
