As in, the Game Developer Conference? It's happening on Feb 18th to the 22nd (just over a month from now). If you're a TGQ writer we should be able to get you in as press! If you're going or looking into going and you either need a place to stay or just want to make sure we meet up at the show, post about it here or let me know via e-mail (doubleyou ee ess at superwes.com). Should be fun!

-Wes

I am! Well, I don't actually expect to go to the GDC but I'll go around the GDC if any shindig-type activities are to occur. Plus I know at least one other person who is going, but I'll let them post for themselves.

I am.

I might need a place to stay or am willing to discuss sharing a place with anyone, so let me know.

It's a bit late for it now, but you might want to look into being a conference associate next year. It's fun, you meet a lot of people, and you get in for free.

I guess that would be me!

And yeah, I'm trying to figure out what to do, in terms of when I should get there, where I will be staying (my company is footing the bill for the airfare upfront, but not my accommodations), so I'm looking for a deal, though I've always heard San Fran is more expensive than NYC (yikes), and what I'll be doing (it'll be my first time there, so I want to check things out... hopefully my inability to drive won't be too much of an issue).

i'm going as a conference associate for a second time this year; like super wes said, this is a really good way to go to gdc if you want to attend but can't foot the bill yourself. working as a ca gets you a $1200 or so ticket for attending an event that you wanted to be at anyway. it's kind of exhausting but still a great experience! plus you occasionally get to tell the ceo of some company that they're not allowed to see a panel, which is fun.

fortninety, if you are looking for a hotel in san francisco with less than ridiculous rates and don't mind taking advice from internet strangers i can recommend a place within a few blocks of the moscone center.

I may or may not be rooming up with aerisdead, so the information sharc would be greatly appreciated! Simply PM me I guess. The sooner the better so we can both set our plans straight ASAP. And thanks!

I'm staying at the Best Western: Carriage Inn from Feb 19th to the 23rd in a non-smoking room with two double beds with Alon from Chatterbox Game Radio and maybe Matt (he hasn't confirmed and I would like him to!). It's around .3 blocks from the Moscone Center and we ended up spending around $120 a night. If we get two more people to share the other bed it'll end up costing around $30 per person, per night, which ain't bad at all for San Fran!

I don't think I'm going to be able to make it honestly. I just don't have enough money this year, and things probably won't be looking much better for a couple years now.

Yes! Should we decide on a night to do this ahead of time, or should we just wing it? Tuesday night or Friday would probably be the easiest since there aren't as many parties.

Is Halverson coming? I'd, uhh, sorta like to meet him...

I don't think Dave is going. I don't know for certain if I am, either. But it's a most-likely deal.

Hey Matt, tell Sara that if you don't go I'll slit my wrists. Because it's true. (I really am just trying to make you cry)

It really has nothing to do with sara. She actually wants me to go, but not being able to stay some where free would cost too much. Nothing we can do about that.

Shaper you could totally stay at our place for free. We live right near CalTrain so it's kind of easy to get to San Francisco but it might take like 30-45 minutes from our place I'm not sure.
