We're here on the GDC show floor perusing the booths and playing the games so that you don't have to. Actually, if you're currently at work, you probably wish you were here with us playing the games rather than slaving away in a cubicle. And if you're at school, well who is to say you're not playing a game right now on your iPhone, eh? Check out the gallery below for a quick walk through of the show floor, and a 360 look at the next generation PSP and the Nintendo 3DS, as well as some iOS games.
For some gamers, there’s no school like the old school. Thanks to the jailbreaking community and the Bluetooth connectivity of Nintendo’s Wii Controller, you can combine the gaming greatness of the 1990s with the high-tech power of Apple’s iPad. Let’s get started!
John Carmack has created some of the greatest video games of all time. He's helmed successful companies, has more than twenty years of experience in the video game industry, pushed the boundaries of iOS gaming with the recent release of Rage.

It seems that when Nintendo announced Apple as the enemy of the future last year, they may have been on to something.

While it might not be Apple-related news, the pew-pew minded folks over our sister site Gamesradar have pointed out something simply too awesome to ignore: Super Mario is 25 years old, and to celebrate Nintendo is gearing up to celebrate!
How hardy will the Japanese game company party? According to Gamesradar, hard enough to bust out a 25th Anniversary Edition pack of Super Mario games spanning the full quarter-century of the franchise's existence. We're sure you'll agree, that's pretty sweet.
Back in the early days of gaming consoles, there was quite a bit of jockeying between Nintendo and Sega. While the latter eventually won the hardware war, Sega has shifted into creating software for other consoles and platforms. And the platform we, of course, are most excited about them bestowing their attentions on is the iPhone OS.
What, you may ask, has us so singing the praises of Sega gaming? Oh, just a little game they're tweaking and prepping called Sonic 4. At least according to the Sega blog -- and they seem in a position to know.
