This week the game industry is sitting down to chat about business... Developers will be sharing some of their feelings on where the industry is going, how to expand the market, and what they think makes a game good...Alright, so I'm not really 100% sure what, exactly, goes on at D.I.C.E... There are some speeches and what not, but I pretty much just described GDC - game developers conference (which is coming up soon aswell). Anyways, what I do know is that, Minoru Arakawa and Howard Lincoln, Nintendo legends were honoured.

But what we all actually care about, THE AWARDS! unlike the oscars there were no scandilous dresses, or metalic naked men to distract us - but, much like the oscars I'd suppose there are some questionable winners. Personally, I think it's a pretty good list.
