    Epic Games has announced its plans for the upcoming GDC. In addition to showcasing the most recent enhancements to Unreal Engine 3, the following sessions will be available:
    • “Automating Regression Discovery: Finding the Wrenches in the GEARS OF WAR,” will be presented by Martin Sweitzer, programmer, Epic Games. This intermediate-level lecture, to be held Wednesday, February 20, 12:00-12:30, in West Hall Room 3004, will be geared toward programmers, although production and management may also benefit from the talk.
      “UNREAL TOURNAMENT 3 Postmortem: ULTRA KILL!” will be led by Dr. Michael Capps, president, and Jeff Morris, producer, Epic Games. This postmortem, to be held Friday, February 22, 2:30-3:00 p.m., in West Hall Room 2001/2003, will cater to all developers, regardless of experience.

    He has a PhD, Although he's not a medical doctor.

    I'm thinking of going for a PhD. Having Dr. before you name sound great on a CV (unless you have Pepper as Last Name)


    I wonder what this post-mortem is going to be? Are they going to analyse in an honest way why UT3 has failed?

    This is a pretty convenient title, but not in the way they wanted it to be, I'm sure.

    Still, GDC is awesome, go Epic.

    Are you kidding, I would love to be called Dr. Pepper in real life.

    Do we know if this will be available as a recording for us schlubs who wish they could go?

    The term postmortem is most often associated with an Autopsy. In this case it simply means "after the event", with "the event" being the publishing of Unreal Tournament 3.

    Hey, what's wrong with being a Pepper? :D

    If everyone (or even half) that complained on the UT3 & BU forums about the PC version of the game showed up there, it might start looking more like a funeral... or a lynching... :eek: :catfight:

    ironic use of the word post mortem

    so they'll be dissecting the corpse that is UT3 and explaining how they killed it in a calm lucid hannibal lecter like demeanor...

    Jeff Morris - " I cut out the UI and deleted it with some java beans and a nice bottle of chiante.....phuffffffff..ffffffff.ffff.fffff."

    Although I'd have to agree a bit, the word postmortem is used at large in the game development industry in presentations and articles about games once they've shipped, and specially on keynotes at GDC. It'd actually be pretty weird if they used any other word.
