GDC parties FTW


I hope you won’t hate me for it, but I passed on the chance to sneak into Sony’s party on Wednesday night. Though I later heard reports that it was fun. Instead we (Kitty and I) went to the AMD party at Asia de Cuba in the Clift hotel. There were many shots of Patron and laps were sat in that probably should have been left alone. Then on to XYX at the W for networking and asskissing.
 
Thursday night we hit Microsoft’s Women in Gaming party which is thrown every year by MS’s diversity peeps. It was super fun. Shane Kim, Laura Fryer and Kiki Wolfkill said profound words and then I went up and squeaked some nonsense about GamerchiX–but at least I didn’t swear!!  I was so thrilled to meet my fellow GamerchiX who came out to represent: Lia Tortilla, iTara PMS, MechAngel, Dancing Erika, Batgirl PMS and PMS Tart joined Kitty and myself in these hideous last minute tshirts I had made.
 
On to the XNA event! Sushi was yum, music was great. I saw a lot of old pals that I haven’t seen since last GDC, and met some cool new people and some jerks as well. Seriously, I totally love my job and there are great people, but how many hours can you be pinched, groped, an ogled before you get pissed off? The answer is three. The last straw was when a random dude from EA Canada stuck his tongue down my throat! My big Xbox bros Mark and Mark said they’d have him thrown out, but I don’t need that kinda trouble.
 
Oh yeah, one of the coolest things to come out of GDC this year is Simian Escape! It’s one of the XNA challenge games and it looks like the cave paintings at Lescaux have run amok. Check it out!
