One day, GDC might not have an Anti-Censorship roundtable. One day, it might not need one.

For now, game writer and anti-censorship activist Daniel Greeberg made his annual pilgrimage to the conference to talk about what’s new in the world of people that want games to sit down and shut up.

"Duke is back," proclaimed the signs and coasters all over the DeepSilver promotional event at GDC tonight. There's even a web site, DukeIsBack.com, announcing the triumphant return of the long-neglected first-person hero.
