  • Find Out What The Devs Think of AGC

    MMORPG.com has posted a dev diary written by the producer of Priates of the Burning Sea, John Tynes.

    The AGC is very different from E3 -- or at least, from the E3 That Was. It really is a conference, meaning it's nothing but panels, roundtables, and lectures. There is a small exhibit hall but it's full of companies selling middleware and services to developers and studios. No one is in the exhibit hall showing off games in any real way. In fact, the only booth I saw where you could pick up a joystick and play was the Microsoft Casual Games booth, so if you want to fly to Austin to play Geometry Wars, go for it!

    Keep reading to see what else John Tynes has to say and don't forget to stop by the forums at Ten Ton Hammer and let us know your thoughts on this game and all your favorite MMOs!
