I flew back from a half week in New York last night. We got home about 11 p.m. Tomorrow morning I'm flying off to San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference.

I'll be joining Michael McWhertor and Stephen Totilo as we report, interview, and write our way through the week-long show. Looks like there's going to be some interesting news coming out of the show as always. I can't tell you everything I know, but I can say that Battlefield 3 will be there. As will a bunch of other games, and, most importantly, oodles of interesting talks.

Prepare!
