Peak. Was excited for KojiPro @ GDC too but health is more important.

Genuinely curious as to how the Coronavirus will impact the Olympics.

We might be getting to the point where saying who is still going would be a shorter list than saying who isn't going.

It’ll be cancelled tomorrow probably. Better to get that out before the weekend, I think.

I was kinda sad that I wasn't gonna be able to attend this year, because some of the presentations sounded interesting (as always) and a former classmate of mine was going to be doing a presentation this year that I wanted to see, but at this rate it's starting to sound like it's better that I couldn't make it.

I was really eager to see their rendering features for next gen presentation. Hopefully they will atleast youtube it.

Yeah, we're absolutely at the stage where GDC's almost certainly getting called off. I was expecting announcements regarding the store part of the Epic Games Store (alongside the usual suite of Unreal Engine panels), so Epic had probably more invested into the event than most.

GDC likely to be canceled, I'm not so sure about E3. It's still a little ways off, and the virus may be under control by then. Or it will be the Stand. We'll see!

epic was to announce some updates coming to UE4. I guess they'll just make a video presentation of them

All the cons this year (at least the first half of it) need to be canceled.

Hopefully this just turns into the year of the digital event.
