Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    (PLEASE NOTE: DATE CHANGE!)

    Just a quick FYI -- the Queers in Gaming panel on Friday will take place right before the LGBT PAX meetup party, so it should work out well to do a max exodus for those interested in both.

    Here's the info on the panel, which takes place at 3:30pm on Saturday, September 1st:

    QUEERS IN GAMING
    The presence of queer content in gaming and other media has been a hot button topic recently that reflects a conflict in our wider culture. Homophobia and bullying in games are as old as online gaming, but is this a small group of Xbox Live trolls or is there a wider problem? In this panel we will discuss the homophobia encountered by gaymers and queer geeks as well as how to stand up to it by building strong LGBTQ geek communities. Presented by Queer Geek!

    Panelists are Jeremy Crawford from D&D, James Portnow from Extra Credits, Ashley Cook from GFBRobot, Boris Erickson from Xbox Live and Gwen Yeh from ArenaNet.

    This one sounds wicked awesome. I can't wait to get the schedule on guidebook and book mark this panel.

    Just wanted to give a small update on this one.

    In order to allow enough time for all speakers to participate, we've moved off Charlie Tight, Holly Conrad, and Jessica Merizan from the panel. With the number of people participating, everyone would have had less than 5 minutes to say anything! Believe me, it was not an easy decision to make as I'd really love to hear their input on filmmaking, but the remaining speakers are still very interesting. Check out the updated list on the FB event page as well as the films that everyone has worked on.

    Hopefully this years panel will be success and allow for more similar panels in the future. With the amount of interest that this panel ended up generating, I'd love to split it up into two parts possibly, one that deals more with the theoreticals of filmmaking (translating the story, how to handle characters and lore, how true to stick to source material, etc) and another dealing with the practical challenges (Practical vs digital effects, effect of web television on distribution, legal relationships, etc.).

  • shidoshishidoshi Registered User regular
    I get to officially talk about the panel I'm going to be a part of now, which is nice. It's a follow-up to the PAX East one we did, taking some of the things we learned from that, and (hopefully) incorporating more about the community aspect of the topic.
    Press XY To Continue: Transgender Issues In Gaming
    From major franchises like Street Fighter and Resident Evil to quirky cult games like Nier and Catherine, video games have a long history of transgender characters. Our panel of transgender game designers, writers and fans takes a look at how transgender people are depicted in video games, and where the industry is heading in terms of letting players explore gender roles through games.

    PANELISTS:
    Charles Battersby [Lead Satirist, U.S. Department of Electronic Entertainment], Kelly Worrall [Producer, Electronic Arts], Rebecca Heineman [Founding Member, Interplay], Jennell Allyn Jaquays [Chief Creative Officer, Olde Skuul], Katelynn Cusanelli [Actress, MTV Networks], Eric L. Patterson [News Editor, EGM Media, LLC]

    Also, what the heck at this:
    Cards Against Humanity
    Bring your best card ideas and pitch them to all eight writers and co-creators of Cards Against Humanity. The best card ideas will make it into the next expansion. The worst card ideas will be mercilessly ridiculed. PLEASE NOTE: Utilikilts will not be permitted in the auditorium.

    Are they that big of a problem?

    just out of curiosity... are more being added? i only ask because there's a TON of awesome panels (and a lot i want to go see!), but i noticed the main theater is surprisingly empty compared to previous years. it's like... make a strip, keynote, omegathon, concerts, and maybe 1-2 other panels. there used to be something there every 1-2 hours, and for pax being this big and this full... well... i was surprised.

    If Utilikilts were actually banned they'd have a problem with there being enough Enforcers to run the room.

    They probably can't afford it.
