If you guys love games, you should help make LA GAME SPACE possible by giving whatever you can give on their Kickstarter page. It's basically a whole building dedicated to game research, study, exhibits, conferences, residencies and events, and a lot of good will come out of it. All conferences and talks will be online for all to see, so it's not only for L.A. residents!
Now, I know not everyone will be interested in this idea, but here's where everyone should be interested in backing their Kickstarter - if you donate 15$, you get over 30 new games from experienced, awesome developers, 6 indie classics (Aquaria, Off-Road Velociraptor Safari, The Basement Collection, Noitu Love 2 and Super Crate Box Xmas edition) and a brand new game by Katamari Damacy's creator, Keita Takahashi! That's an insane amount of games for a very low price. If you feel like giving more and helping out more, you can get to higher tiers and get t-shirts, posters, prints, pixel portraits and other stuff.
In short, please visit LA GAME SPACE on Kickstarter and consider giving a little bit to help out games become even better - everyone will benefit from this!
