No mention?  Were they there?

I saw them on Thursday in South Hall, but couldn't find them again on Friday. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to really talk to them. I was with an ex-Turbine designer at the time, and then an ex-Turbine artist ran into us, and... we got derailed.

Looked nice, though. They also had working an idea I'd had a couple years back - you see combat between other players on the travel map, but only as icon. If one player calls for help ("sends up a flare"), you can enter their little tactical combat instance.

Nothing in this post represents the views of my current or previous employers.

Didn't see them at all, and I combed Kentia three times over with Llava. I wouldn't've expected them to have a stand anywhere else, really.

They were at the NVidia booth in the South Hall.   They had a couple of demo stations there, but not their own booth.  Great looking game, though!

Damnit. I knew I should've paid more attention to the hardware booths. It's just that the Intel and Logitech booths were so desolate of interesting things... :-(

The nVIDIA booth is ALWAYS a good time.  They frequently have better game demos there than the stuff at the game developers' booths. 

I believe that was the only place PotBS was being shown last year as well (again, mostly to show off the pretty water effects).

Damn, I was keeping an eye out for this but didn't know to look in the nvidia booth.  Was hoping to see it.

Instead, I saw that Disney Pirate game.... yeah, not looking like that's For Us.

The showfloor was like the Den of Iniquity taken form. I regret nothing.
