Another week survived! It's particularly momentous because it was the Game Developers Conference all week, during which we brought you the most interesting segments, speeches, panels and news.
Below you'll find a summary of this week's best content—including a hefty stack of the GDC content—as well as a return of Comment of the Week.
We'll be continuing to ask for you input and nominations on the best community activity week to week, so thanks to everyone who participated. And for those of you who didn't, no hard feelings.
Want to suggest an article, comment, tweet, or any other content on Kotaku to be featured for a weekly Best Of nomination? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of "Best Of Nomination." Or any other subject line that will help me sort through and search for them. I'm not too picky.
You'll have to forgive them. They're from Barcelona.
