Fantastic, once again I remain massively disapointed that I can never attend anything even close to this cool here in Australia

Id like to see a look at some of the indie game sections, so the one/two man bands showing their games and get them some wider coverage on this platform.

Be great to have you guys do a bit of boosting the companies that don’t get any press really – help us to uncover some gems please, preferably before sunday so i can go buy any lol.

Just catching up on the content from yesterday I missed when at work.

I remember when tabletop games were a niche for ‘social misfits’. Today, there is this massive event over 3 days, with global franchises like Alien having licensed games being announced.

It never ceases to amaze me how this hobby has grown. I started out buying white dwarf, the one that covered dungeons and dragons andfeatured hand drawn black and white covers, and now we get all this.

Thanks to everyone involved for the hard work that brought all this coverage.
