Despite invitations to both a poker tournament and a "hardcore beach party," I decided on an early night last night. I'm glad - I've already been up for over an hour, sorting out my schedule and making last-minute tweaks.
David Jones is delivering the event's first keynote, talking about online functionality in videogames. He's then coming back later in the day to play both GTA and Elite with Frontier's David Braben, and talk about the similarities between the two cosmetically very different experiences.
Also today: Flower's designer Jenova Chen talking about the old games-as-art thing, a big panel about digital distribution and some interesting stuff about the writing process in games. It should be a good one. It starts in an hour.
I'd better brush me teeth.
