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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

Laura Johnston

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
