Thanks to Kotaku for reminding me that Obscure is finally coming out in the US tomorrow. It looks like they have dropped the “Mortifilia” name, which is good because it is a stupid name. Obscure is supposed to be out March 30.

This was the fourth year I’ve attended, and while the quality of the presentations continues to vary, I met a lot of cool people this year and had a chance to talk to some otherwise inaccessible folk.
