The entire Boing Boing Video crew is in San Francisco this week, along with a number of the bloggers from Offworld, BB Gadgets, and Boing Boing, to cover the 2009 Game Developers Conference. And this time, for the first time ever, we're doing it with live video broadcasts on our new Ustream channel.
Tune in for conversations in our BBV@GDC studio with special guests from the gaming biz, Tuesday through Friday.
Above, a little segment we shot en route to GDC, aboard a Virgin America flight -- because if you're flying to a gamer con, you really do need to be able to play DOOM on the way, on the inflight entertainment system. In this episode, we climb way inside the guts of the plane, beneath the seats, and actually get our hands on the little servers where they store the DOOM cheat codes.
Our live video stream and all of the video episodes we're cranking out this week will all live at offworld.com/gdc09.
