Game Developers Conference 2009: 16 things we want to see at GDC

GDC 2009 wishlist: The Game Developers Conference is upon us and these are the revelations, games, and topics we want to see in some form at this year's event.

From Third-Party Developers:

Mass Effect 2 gameplay footage.

At this point, we're guessing new info, screens, videos, and the like for the hotly-anticipated sequel to Mass Effect, will trickle out of Microsoft at a painfully slow pace. Mass Effect 2's development team will be discussing their new level-design process in a session at GDC 2009, but there are no guarantees that anything from the game will actually be shown.

A Taste of Assassin's Creed 2.

We know it's coming, and we suspect it'll be spectacular. But is it set in ancient times? Modern times? Feudal Japan? These are the lingering questions that torment game editors in the wee hours of the night. Even a twenty second Assassin's Creed 2 teaser video will satisfy our lust for more stealthy action.

209338-1

Dead Rising 2 gameplay footage.

Yeah, yeah, we've seen the early screens and viral video, but it's time to see if Dead Rising 2's metrosexual new protagonist is a worthy stand-in for Frank West. The game looks fantastic thus far and we're hoping that we may get another look at the game's zombie-packed casinos and its undead showgirls.

Alan Wake

Where is this thing already? We're dying for tangible information on Alan Wake, a game that was originally supposed to be an Xbox 360 launch title. Four years later, we still don't have a release date, but we're hopeful that an update on the game's progress will be given soon.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
