GDC 2010 was amazing. Here’s the quick rundown:

Monday:

  • Playfish party

Wednesday

  • CDNetworks at 111 Minna
  • GAMMA IV at Mezzanine
  • Wild Pickets party bus over to
  • LucasArts party
  • Harmonix party at Rockit

Thursday

  • Speakeasy party at Metreon
  • Gamespy party on the XYZ Balcony
  • Havok party at Thirsty Bear
  • Tried to hit up Mezzanine, but they were closed

Friday

  • Destructoid party on 6th St

Saturday

  • Finally actually hit the GDC floor!

Nabbed swag from all the booths, enough T-shirts to clothe a small country, but it was a little boring since I was neither hiring people nor looking for a job. Most of the booths were recruiting, some were selling enterprise tools and code, and a few were selling engines or middleware that might interest smaller, indie developers.

Still, it was a great time checking out the companies that attended, meeting people and industry reps, and seeing some of the upcoming trends in game development. We’ll definitely be there again next year!

We’ll skip the traditional introductory “Hi OMG blog LOL” post and get started with some rockin’ events. All this week is the Game Developer’s Conference here in San Francisco, and while the day job ties me up for most of it, we’ll be crashing the after-parties as much as possible!

Here’s how things are shaping up so far:

Wednesday Night

Thursday Night

Friday Night

It’s going to be an absolutely wild week, and we can’t wait to bring you in on it!
