I know GDC is happening because I saw people wearing GDC badges on BART last night.  Anyone going?  Is there anything there worth seeing?

At two grand a throw, plus hotel in one of the country's most expensive cities, no, nothing there is worth it if you're paying yourself. I'll hit SXSW Gaming in two weeks, though.

It's all mobile and how to integrate pay-to-play discussions based on the last one any of you spoke about.  No surprise it's so expensive to get in, if you can't monetize your opinion isn't needed.

Oh, this year it's all VR. :)

That said, signs of online persistent gameplay making a comeback. Also mature markets and the slow death of indie as a result is finally visible. More acquisitions, the big guys are relevant again, even an IPO.

I am around, because I always am. Talking on Friday. Mostly, catching up with friends.

Anything exciting out of VR? All I could tell from articles is incremental changes and a price drop from Oculus.

He posted about a VR Carpet on Facebook yesterday. And VR "smell" for Porn today.

So, no.

"Smell" is probably the last thing I want added to my VR Porn.

You all joke about VR porn as it if isn't amazing.  Protip:  it is amazing.

I am still doing all of my gaming these days on VR and doubt I will ever go back to traditional gaming, except for certain specific things (a new Zelda, Southpark, that sort of thing).  The technology is fucking great.  The software just needs to catch up.  Tons and tons of shit comes out for VR, with emphasis on the word "shit".  There are enough pearls in there to make it worth it for me.

Even if it's amazing, it still doesn't need smell.

Oh there is much to joke about but VR Pr0n is like one of the top 3 reasons to make VR.

But short of actual full sensory deprivation/replacement technology, smell is the last goddamn thing I want in VR Pr0n.

Raph's talk: http://www.raphkoster.com/2017/03/14/video-of-my-gdc-talk-still-logged-in/

Insightful as always. Reminded me of Mike Montiero's "How Designers Destroyed the World" talk, in the idea that we must be responsible for the things we put into this world. I also appreciated the idea of the unplanned events ala 'WoW plague' making it into our VR/IoT instances. I hadn't thought of that, and yet it's sure to happen in the near future.

Thus far, that's some powerful talk.

I'm also slightly horrified that some of these lessons need to be taught.  Jesus wept.

Edit :  Bloody Hell, that escalated quickly.  Well worth the time to watch.  Also hilarious that the chap with the question right at the end clearly hadn't listened to a FUCKING WORD.  Jesus Christ, what is wrong with people.

The online spaces that many here came of age in were a long time ago, and they don't teach about these things in history classes.

I read Bartle's book for the first time not long ago; I was impressed by a) how much is still relevant and b) how many designers need to keep re-learning lessons from decades ago.

It's as if there's no formalized learning so each generation will keep making the same dumb mistakes.  awesome, for real
