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?

As far as the kilts go, I can't say for certain.  I can tell you that CCP devs have been known to wear kilts before, so perhaps you're seeing some CCP folks.

 Yes, but stop staring at their Rice-a-Ronis.
