eGames & Game Connect: Will You Be Going?

eGames & Game Connect: Will You Be Going?

melb.jpgOver the weekend, I’m going to attempt to cover two gaming events down Melbourne way – at the same time. I’ll be channelling Red Dwarf‘s Arnold Rimmer from that sexy episode where he gets jiggy with another hologram.


The events in question are the eGames and Entertainment Expo and Game Connect (the event formerly known as the Australian Game Developers Conference). Both are transpiring at roughly the same time, from the 15th to the 18th – give or take a day.

If you’d like to have a chat, feel free to flag me down, or throw random pieces of confectionary at my head. If you’re not sure who to look for, I’ll be the guy with a big camera round his neck, a notepad in his back pocket, and a look of pure terror plastered to his face.

Imagine you’ve just been ambushed by a H.R. Giger painting with teeth and a taste for scrawny 23-year olds, and you’re halfway there.

Drop a comment and let me know if you’ll be going to either event, so I don’t feel so alone.


  • I’ll be getting down there.

    I had fun at the armageddon expo so I will definitely be going to eGames…

    Hopefully there’s some assassins creed because I neeedsss that game


  • I’ll be going, went to game1 last week. They had haze, cod4, mass effect and a couple of other games. Wasn’t too many people, so I was able to hog the cod4 machines a bit 😀

  • I’d go except for the fact I live in Brisbane 🙁 I’m sure there’ll be a few of us there with you in spirit.

  • I’ll be going to Game Connect. Perhaps if I have a spare moment I might have a poke about in eGames.

    I’ll be one of the ones sporting a game developer T-Shirt and a hang-over. That probably narrows it down to 90% of the attendees.

  • I’ll be down at Egames this weekend, should be good fun. I’m just hoping it dosnt turn out like last years event, which was the suck

    By the way Logan, What day will you be going on? if its on saturday, i’ll be looking forward to throw random bits of candy at you. So long as you don’t hit me if i do. :p

  • I will most definately be there either the sat or sun. I’ll have a look around to see if your around. Game1 last week was abit small and didn’t fulfill my gaming hunger.

  • Will be at eGames on Fri and Sat. Looking forward to it. A friend won the speed building comp last year so i’m going to watch him defend his crown 😀
