Cold in Melbourne
But I suspect most of it is an inner cold, brought on by a touch of exhaustion. DAC 2003 is a busy event, with wall-to-wall sessions and short to no breaks. The real problem isn't that I can't take a break to rest and get rid of the cold, but that I won't! No way, too much fun to be had! Like watching Espen Aarseth, Noah Wardrip-Fruin and Nick Montford shoot zombies, and find that the urge to analyse is a reflex by now, the players as well as the viewers babbling comments on aesthetics and the fictitious frame of the game, punctuated by the sound of shotgun reloading. See why I love these conferences?
