Yes, I used Adam Sessler’s name in the title to try to pick up some cheap SEO traffic. Sorry (but not). Ha! Anyway, here are some photos of other game writers, some journalists that moved to the business side of gaming, and two sexy girl gamers.

Here are some photos I snapped during DICE 2010. You’ll see some of gaming’s top talent, a sexy Italian cameraman, a tap gaming analyst, and a great comedian in this set. Enjoy!

You’ve read my notes on Bobby Kotick’s DICE 2010 presentation, now watch it for yourself! See Activision’s lord and master explain why he doesn’t play games anymore, admit that not buying Harmonix was a mistake, and come off as…kind of fun. After you’ve see Kotick live, I want your opinion on his performance. Half the people I spoke to at DICE thought he was being genuine, while the other half thought his whole schtick was staged. What side are you on?… more
OnLive president and CEO Steve Perlman showed off the latest beta of the company’s streaming game service at DICE 2010. Prior to the live demo, Perlman went over where he thinks gaming is going and why OnLive is the next logical step in home entertainment. While some of the content will be old to those of you that have been following the service, some of the performance gains and features are new.
As promised, here are the results of the 13th annual Interactive Achievement Awards hosted by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. As expected, Uncharted 2 did ridiculously well. Batman: Arkham Asylum and Scribblenauts did well too. As a huge BioWare fan, I was pleased that Dragon Age: Origins picked up an award (I was teasing BioWare’s Dr. Greg Zeschuk that he now has 52 of them).
Anyway, the results are in! Check ‘em out and let me know what you think (please)!!!
Game of the Year

If you missed the live stream of the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences’ Interactive Achievement Awards then make sure to watch it next week on IFC on February 26. Host Jay Mohr was excellent, skewering Activision and cracking on several of the top developers in gaming. (His joke about angrily masturbating to Bobby Kotick brought down the house.)
In addition to the comedic entertainment, it’s just great watching some truly awesome games and their creators being honored. Check it out!… more
Hey guys! I’m here at DICE 2010 and Bobby Kotick’s session is about to start. The Activision exec is one of the most polarizing figures in gaming. Shareholders love him and gamers hate him. I’ll be commenting on Kotick’s talk in the comments section on my BlackBerry.… more
Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, the StarCraft 2 beta, T-Mac possibly ending up on the New York Knicks, or the warm weather at the Winter Olympics, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.… more
BioWare has been sprucing up its web site for Dragon Age: Origins Awakening. You’ve already met two new NPCs (Anders and Velanna). Now it’s time to learn about four new areas in the game: Blackmarsh, Kal’Hirol, Vigil’s Keep, and Wending Woods. Here are screenshots, official descriptions, and my take on these new lands.
Official description: The Blackmarsh is a gloomy, desolate place. All who travel the one lonely path between the trees are beset by an oppressive feeling of dread. Nothing stirs in the marsh, … more
