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:

209338-6

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.

Fuck! It's been three years since a StarFox game. Four since on a console and still no word. Hell, there's ANOTHER Zelda game coming for the DS and fans still want another. Mario and Zelda fans, shut up, you get a game for the series at least every other year.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
