Re: [linuxgames] Game Developers Conference

I'll be attending the GDC again this year.

The price is a bit high.  Not to mention anything without the sessions is
a waste of time IMHO.

It covers all game platforms including Gamecube, Playstation 2, and
Gameboy Advance.  But the information in most of sessions can apply to
any platform.  After the talk on adaptive difficultly by the creators
of Crash Badicoot Racing, I wanted to fire up Tux Kart and try to
implement something similar.  Chris Crawford tutorial on storytelling
at the first GDC I went to was worth the price of admission by itself
