GDC 2009 gets going properly this morning with the first big keynote, being delivered at 9.00am PST by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.
To be absolutely clear: that's 9.00am PST, 4.00pm GMT and 5.00pm CET. Steph will be in the hall liveblogging the entire thing for VG247. It will last one hour.
Speculation is already running hot as to what Iwata will show, with US journalists claiming the exec will show new Wii games, and that film crews have been banned from recording past the first five minutes.
You'll just have to wait till the curtain lifts. We'll bring you all the details, blow by blow, as they happen.
In the meantime, do some starjumps and shout at the wall. Drink some lager and smash the can on your head. It's the big guns, baby. Raining hot Nintendo lead all over your ass from California. We're pumped beyond all belief. You should see us: we're huge.
