From February 28th to March 3rd, Dorkaholics will be covering the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC) held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. GDC is the world’s largest annual conference of video game developers whose collective focus is to network, share learning experiences, and innovate.
What can we look forward to at GDC? For those interested in learning more about video games- everything from storytelling, to programming, to A.I – the first two days of the conference will feature lectures and panels that cover these topics and more. On March 1st the exhibit floors open and that’s where we will be able to try out the games, talk to the developers, and get some “hands on” time with the most anticipated games for this upcoming year.
What are we most excited about seeing this year at GDC? I say VR! Why? Because VR technology was possibly the most over-hyped plaything of 2016. Now as we enter 2017, we have yet to meet a “game-changer” VR game or product – so maybe GDC will reveal something newsworthy? I certainly hope so. But what do I know? I’m a mediocre gamer at best and I’m only being sent on this assignment because I’m local to the Bay Area. Either way, I promise the coverage will be informative and fun, even if it’s filthy casual at best.
Oh and also we will be doing a live stream on Facebook for the first day of the exhibit show, March 1st. Got questions? Want to see a specific game or exhibit? Submit your requests via Facebook message or on the live stream chat and I will make sure I cover it in the feed. Details on the live stream will be posted to Facebook so make sure to follow us on our Facebook page.
