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.

WD My Cloud Home

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Sharp PN-40TC1 Huddle Board

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
