Yeah, ducked out of the Dragon Age thing to line up for a panel, it was fairly detailed Did anyone go to the spore demo after Dragon Age, was it any good?

Worst in my opinion was the Dragon Age. With them using their floor space to hide their product that seemed to keep crashing as it was hours between demos, I was expecting the presentation to be a more in-depth view of the gameplay, story, etc. When my wife and I saw that it was about the editing tool, we joined the streams headed for the door.
Speaking of having my wife with me, people could be a bit more considerate of the ladies. Having balloons bounce around with falic drawings, and just general disregard for the fact that someone may not want to hear the crass stuff you're spewing isn't ok, be it attendees or panelists.
Not to sound all negative, there were some great panels I got to see. They typically made waiting in the half-hour to hour long lines worth while.

Very disappointed by "How to get the world to notice your video game blog". The entire panel was from Destructoid and its associates, and half the room was just Destructoid users. Lots of nut-grabbing and boasting, which was annoying. It was a little bit helpful, but overall just a big club meeting for D'toid.

I only made it to the second half of the Beyond D&D Panel, but as a result I think I'm going to purchase the Burning Wheel and shove it in my rules-lawyering friend's face.
I also enjoyed the (can't remember the name) Legal Issues in Gaming Panel, since they confirmed for me that a fellow did in fact stab his friend over said friend's stealing of an epic that they bought together and one of them stole from the other. I also learned that in China fellow sued and won when another player stole his gear, and was not only awarded his items back, but $11k in damages of real money.
I missed the Girl Gaming Communities panel, but from the previous posts it looks like I didn't miss much.
The Women in the Industry panel was excellent, and the panelists were very friendly. We spent a decent amount of time after the panel talking with one of them (can't remember her name either.) I was the one who stood up and said men in WOW are fugly....cause it's true. If designers can spend so much time giving every female ava in that game (gnomes and dwarves aside) massive T&A, they can give the male avas asses! I want something to look at other than body-building freaks!
