Long time old school friends from so many years ago! (Me and Alex worked on some of the worlds first ever UE3 games 15 years ago) It was an awesome to reconnect and mind meld! They have some amazing platform tech for developers and projects! And super rad seeing Justin Keeling again! #smallworld #dice2017 #streamlinestudios #inspired
64th floor of the Delano! Looking down on #vegas! I'm at the #dice2017 #reception filled with a room full of people. Thats the president of the AIAS!
Hey #intel family! Me and Mark Subotnick finally met in person after all these years of being in similar email threads, events and projects. Really awesome guy! Like a brother! #JustinIsTheOtherMarkSubotnick #IntelSoftware #respect #love #dice2017 thank you Mark! #shapesong #innovators
#overwatch #warcraft lead Jeff Kaplan talking about creating worlds. #dice2017 We brainstormed some cool stuff
And here I am with the man of the hour Mr Jeffrey Kaplan from Blizzard after his talk! Really cool humble guy to chat with! #dice2017 #overwatch #worldofwarcraft
It's not every day you get to hang with a NASA JPL scientist Dr Jeff Norris! And he introduced me to the team who created the experience Project Eagle. #dice2017
Dr. Jeff Norris from NASA JPL speaking at #dice2017
So cool meeting the founders of Blackbird Interactive, the team that helped NASA JPL create the mars colonization simulation. Previously they were at Relic which is cool too. #dice2017 we talked about some VR collaborations too. :) they are excited to play #shapesong #VR
Listening to #squanchtendo about creating humorous and funny VR experiences. #dice2017 #VR world famous voice actor Justin Roiland!! And ex-Epic producer Tanya Watson! Love hearing about their stories and experiences in games and specifically VR.
Listening to a discussion between Ted Price (insomniac) and Jason Rubin (oculus), about the current state of VR and the future of VR. #dice2017 and yes, the biggest problem in VR is price, not quality. More people would happily join the VR world if it didn't cost 799.99.
Playing with the new #nintendo #switch here at #dice2017 we were playing that new punching game and also #zelda -- also I don't like the feel of the new "pro controller"
So cool chatting with Jamil at #dice2017 #roundtables which are so far my favorite thing of the show! Jamil (Strategy Lead for Google) is an amazingly humble, inspired and detail oriented table leader! The table had some fantastic people from some awesome companies and we talked about VR/AR and the strategies and future of the medium amongst other things. My other round table was with Alexander L. Fernandez and I left with many new friends and new perspectives on a range of topics! Mad respect to everyone! #daydream #virtualreality #intel #shapesong
This guy Graeme Devine aka #ChiefGameWizard always gives inspiring realistic talks about the future strategies of VR/AR/MxR and I first saw him talk at the #AGC1016 last year (the show that my team and I won "best of show" for #shapesong) and he spoke here at #dice2017 this year! Thankful for people like this in the industry shedding light on where things can go. #magicleap it's doubly awesome that Anastasia gets to use her genius there too! #respect #love
Bill Rosemann, the creative director of Marvel talking about creating worlds! #marvel #spiderman was his favorite and got him into super heroes! #dice2017 his secret identity is that he was a kid who loved super heroes growing up. #respect
This is Bill Rosemann, creative director of Marvel! He's just as cool in person as he is giving inspirational talks. He had us all in tears towards the end of his presentation and was one of my favorites of the show! Thankful to know him now and call him a friend! #marvel #spiderman #blueear #starlord #captainamerica #dice2017 #worldbuilding
Hanging with these cool dudes!! Gio, Frank and Mike from #Blizzard having lunch chatting about synthesizers, mutual friends and other fun nerdy things. #thefuture #VR #VirtualReality #dice2017
This is one of my personal heroes in the game biz. The one and only Feargus Urquhart :) I wouldn't be where I am today without him. I started in games back in the #Interplay days and over the years that early encouragement and experiences with Feargus helped motivate me to want to continue in game development to this day. Thank you so much! #dice2017 good memories :) #respect #blackisle #obsidian
