Ok, so I missed yesterday's entry - the show is so exciting, its hard to remember to sit down and convince my internet that yes, it IS connected, please let me access the website ;)
Yesterday morning I went with Keith to the Building Social Enviornments in EVE's Space Stations session; he explained it in detail below, and some of the information will be in my EVE article (coming Soontm). After that was over I had some free time to wander the floors.
GDC isn't quite as large as E3 was, but it's a lot larger than Austin's AGC; there are two show floors: the west (for careers) and the north (for...uh...stuff besides careers?). I saw some cool things on both floors...for example, in the west hall I found Bioware, L5, and lots of little companies with cool gadgets (see some of Skywise's pictures). Playstation also had a little area in the west hall, with a big sign for Heavenly Sword next to a demo booth. Sadly they didn't actually have Heavenly Sword at the show...dirf.
In the north hall I got to meet Pierre-Yves from the Chronicles of Spellborn...after several dev chats and lots of emails, it was really cool to put a name to a face! I also visited the CCP booth (mostly EVE, but many WoD devs walking around) and Logitech. For any lefties who are wondering, there really AREN'T any left handed gaming mice :(
After my wandering I got to meet up with industry legend Dave Perry to discuss 2Moons, 9Dragons, and Top Secret...there is (or will be) a video posted of that interview. Then I caught up with the Bloodymare people in west hall...see that article here.
After the show I was pretty tired so I skipped the party, and opted for some Chinese food while I wrote up my articles :)
I'll write about today's activities later on; we still have a meeting with Turbine and then the infamous CCP party. I'm not sure what, exactly, they're doing this year, but I'm told "there will be leather".
BTW - totally off topic, but I keep seeing men in kilts. Is this a San Fran thing?
