As most gaming blogs and news services zergrush to the Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft and Funcom booths, I've decided to take a virtual stroll through the back alleys of the GDC 2008 to see what I could come up with. Wandering around the GDC Ghetto, where no self respecting blogger or journalist dare's to venture, I uncovered lots of interesting page 2 news.
Check back daily as I bring you more from the GDC Ghetto.
