On the evening of Monday, October 8, the staff of the Illinois Tech Idea Shop were met with a very special surprise guest: rapper Kanye West (also known as YE). Held in the new building for the Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship (hereafter abbreviated as the “Kaplan Institute”), West surprised the students present (some of whom were new members of the Idea Shop team) with his appearance, especially surprising as news outlets at the time focused their attention on his visit with U.S. President Donald Trump later that same week.

While I am nowhere near far enough into the story of “Red Dead Redemption 2” to make a substantive review of the game, I can at least note some of the details I have seen in the game and how they contribute to the game being one of the most immersive video game experiences I have ever had the joy of playing.

The portrayal of WWI in “Battlefield 1” is by no means a realistic one, but it was never meant to be an accurate portrayal. More authentic games and simulators certainly have their place and market in the video game world, the team at EA DICE instead sought to capture the core nature of the “Battlefield” franchise and bring it to a setting that many of its primary gamers had likely never considered outside of their history classes.
