So after three hours of back-to-back keynotes I had a short break for lunch and that's when I finally got the GDCA's online. I had also started writing up the Iwata keynote while waiting for Wright's to start so I got that up as well. I hoofed it quick over to the GDnet booth afterwards for a quick hello and stopped by the GG booth to talk some GI stuff with them. Then I had two back-to-back sessions - that was another three hours, before heading off to Suite Night.
After ditching the suites I hung out in the Fairmont lobby and partook in what I call "passive networking". You sit around in a chair and let people come up to you and start a conversation. So I sat and worked on my reports for the day and met four new people and talked to three I already knew. Not too bad. I also caved in and ordered up some Sushi. Yums.
On the way back to catch the light rail I passed a guy on his cell phone and heard him talking about Gish station and how he thought it was behind the name for the game Gish. I tossed him a shrewd nod over my shoulder. I've been answering this question a lot this year. Which is why you always need to read my interviews. They tell all.
Oh and I forgot to post a pic of the new GDNet shirt I got yesterday that I wore today. I had a few people approach me when they saw the shirt, it was quite cool.
Finally, it appears that I will now be buying a DS Lite at the end of the year, as Nintendo is releasing a Zelda game for the platform. The bastards. Why do they do this to me?!? I had to buy a GameCube to play Zelda too! Not that I'm complaining it's just.... sad :P
Oh and lastly (I swear) I haven't gotten up this year's game developer rant yet because there was a ranter not on the original list of speakers whose name I have to dig up - I'll ask JDR tomorrow, he'll know. So it will be up tomorrow.
Okay I have to get to bed, I need to be up on time tomorrow because I have a session I really want to attend at 9. I also plan to spend the bulk of my time tomorrow in the Expo, since I spent all of 15 minutes in there today and like an hour in there on Wednesday. Geez.
