GDC 14: Nintendo's quest for indies is paying off

he pace is slow and the swagger barely exists. The last day for GDC is starting to wear on the best of us, but it’s been an incredible ride nonetheless. This show in particular showcased incredible ideas and potential to gaming in some sweet directions.

Another testament to this, of course, were games supported by the efforts of Nintendo and their web frame/Unity efforts to make the eShop a friendlier place to distribute their games on for indies. Two games hitting Nintendo’s underdog console as exclusives particularly stood out, and hopefully will set a trend for their peers to follow suit when it comes to what the Wii U can do.

GDC 14: Getting down on Ouya exclusives

aking a breather from the hustle and bustle that GDC 2014 has proved to be this week, I decided to go and enjoy some casual time at the Ouya booth to check out what was being showcased and to get a handle on the redesigned controller myself. Surprisingly, there were a lot of games being demoed through Ouya’s “fund the fun” campaign, and despite some reservations concerning the new splintered direction the brand is going in from proprietary to third-party and the end of all of them being free to play, the games being exclusively signed prove that the Ouya remains relevant after all.

GDC 14: Closing the rift in Oculus rift: Hands-on with the Dev Kit 2

here was one goal that I had this year in mind aside from Press Pause Radio’s modus operandi with indie games showings, one particular rodeo I was eagerly anticipating the return to at GDC 2014: the Oculus Rift.

The team that chased the idea of consumer-friendly virtual reality has been hard at work addressing all of the feedback they received within the last year. In response, they created a reworked build humbly titled “The Dev Kit 2.” I approached the seat where the upgraded goggles laid, strapped in, and completely and experienced an entirely new Oculus; the line between developmental stages and (forgive the pun) reality have now been blurred, and Sony will have some serious competition on their hands.

GDC 14: A Wild Indie Mega Booth Appears

alking through the West Hall at the Moscone, I was delightfully surprised to see one of my favorite exhibits appear at GDC; that’s right, the Indie Mega Booth.
