Title: Anyone going to I-CON?
Post by: Gaming Steve on February 17, 2006, 05:52:15 am
I am just curious if anyone is planning on going to I-CON 25 (http://www.iconsf.org/egaming_glicker.php) to hear me speak in a few weeks? I am actually giving a speech about the Game Developers Conference and I'm going to sit on a few gaming panels (with someone from Blizzard maybe? ;)). I am going to be there both Saturday and Sunday, but I think all my talks are on Saturday.

Even if you don't go to hear me it's a great convention with tons of great panels, good guests, and a lot of great gaming.

I would go, but it is way to far away for me at the moment. If you do another one of these talks in about a year or two, i'd most likly come then.

I'd love to, but New York is like a 8 hour flight over the Atlantic from here. You should do a European tour. The only game thing that I know of here is a thing that I can't remember the name of right now.

That would be the GDCE (the E is for eYoorop)

I would love to....arrrg you made it sound like soooo much fun :( I hope you'll post some photos :)
Went to my first con last year, great experience, great people and Mr.Spock and Mr.Data !!!
Hehe sorry esp. Spiner was soooo funny, so nice and just great.
And there was Roddenberrys son and some very interesting people showing strange movie projects ;)
Ok doesn't matter what I wanted to say is: conventions rule.
And Steve rules.
I wish I could come to ICON. I think I heard about it being a good con before....
Well...I hope after GDC you still have enough energy to give us info on ICON too :)
And the biggest thing concerning gaming is the Games Convention in Leipzig Germany (might go there this year if I don't have to work).It used to be the ECTS, but I have no idea what happpened to them....

I live pretty close to it so I may go (It's only like a half hour away or so).  I dunno, it depends.

Does anybody else think the pic of Steve on that site looks badass? He looks like he's going to give a speech and then blow up a spaceship or something.

Yeah, he looks really dangerous, like if you don't look out, he will shoot you :P

Yeah, shoot you with lasers from his evil eyes. I think the GS logo captures them pretty well :P

I also think it would be pretty cool if you could somehow record your speech and post it here. Though you are giving the speech, so I'm not sure how that would work out.

What are you going to be discussing at it?

When you said Icon I thought you meant the place in CoH (man, I'm as bad as the counter strike guy from CAD (http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/index.php), "Dude, this one time I so hit the damge cap and so soloed an AV while keeping my END up")

Anyway, they never bring any conventions to Colorado. Heck even Road Island is getting some love with digital over load
