Old Haunts

Re: Half a Move


As some know I was down in the Bay Area this weekend for a couple things we'll learn more about later. But it was nice putting actual faces to some names I've gotten to know over the past year, whether it was the guys at EA Sports or Kreyg at Hot Blooded Gaming.

What was weird, however, is staying in a hotel not even a mile from your old home. Not sure I've ever done that before. It was nice to know the neighborhood and not have to do a Google map search for a decent joint to eat, but it was weird passing my old apartment on the way there.

Speaking of putting faces back to names, E3 is around the corner in June. I'll see Crecente, McWhertor, Fahey and Bash in person for the first time in two years. But first, next week, I'll see my brother in person for the first time in four.

Now that's weird.

Some highlights from the weekend:

Wii at Last, Wii at Last, Thank God Almighty ...
Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Merit Badge Edition Winners
First Footage Of Enslaved, From The Makers Of Heavenly Sword
Is The PSP Go Dead Yet?
These Awesome Arcade Machines Are Art
If Kafka Were a Game Designer...


I hope for your sake that they have forgotten those poker debts you owe them.

Or is it the other way around?
