With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

GDC Celebrating Its 25th Show

Posted on Tuesday, February 22 @ 10:47:11 Eastern by


Though this isn't technically the 25th anniversary of the Game Developers Conference, its 25th show will be in full force next week from February 29th to March 4th. (Fun fact: The first GDC took place in the living room of GDC founder Chris Crawford in 1988 and was called the Computer Game Developers Conference.)

To celebrate, Chris Crawford will return for a special lecture entitled 'In Days of Yore' - a surprise after his departure from the video game industry after his famous 1992 'dragon speech'.



GDC 25 has also teamed up with production company I Am 8-Bit (or iam8bit) and will be giving out two special posters, randomly out of a set of four, to each attendee. At registration, attendees will also be given one 'pixel', which they can attach to an initially blank canvas (pictured above) to form a collaborate art piece called Paint by Pixels. Makes me want to play Picross, actually.

Finally, GDC 25 will debut the Classic Game Postmortems, featuring the makers of the several seminal video games of all time: Pac-Man, Elite, Out of This World/Another World, Prince of Persia, Marble Madness, Doom, Pitfall, Bejeweled, Populous, Raid on Bungeling Bay, and Maniac Mansion. (I haven't told Blake yet about the Pac-Man one yet... I guess he knows now.)
