Game Developers Conference 2009 is coming to a close soon. Our feet hurt from standing and our butts are sore from sitting in on lectures, but we’re still in San Francisco, cranking out stories and giving you an intimate look at the event.

Before Peter Molyneux talks this afternoon and more previews, interviews and news stories hit, I wanted to give you guys a glimpse of the big stories we covered this week at GDC. And let me tell you, it was a big week.
