I was even planning on going to this, shame my schedule is much too busy.
I could really use a vacation.

I'm so ****** I get to miss GDC this year, I'm still working on my RPG Engine to present at the GDC one year.

I love the indie scene and I want to get into it so bad! Unfortunately I missed the boat this year, but hopefully next year I will plan ahead.

I just hope someone at GDC asks at the Halo Wars panel, "At what point did you figure it would be a good idea to ever release an RTS on the console? Especially one without hot keys."
