Now that we've lost both Gygax
, we have to learn as much as we can from the still-living legends of gaming. One of these is Ian Livingstone
-- he co-founded the great Games Workshop back in the day with John Peake and Steve Jackson. Currently, he's serving as the "life president" of Eidos
, and lambasting the mass media for their portrayal of games
(because if there's one thing a living legend should do, it's tell the kids these days that they're doing it wrong). And now De Nederlandse Gamedagen
, for short) has announced that Livingstone will be speaking at its annual Festival of Games in Holland this coming June
. He'll be talking about his career and how he's integrated Eidos with Square Enix over the last year or so
Just do us a favor if you do end up going to see the show: Start your Q&A question off with, "Mr. Livingstone, I presume?"
