This Saturday I'm off to the Brisbane Exhibition Centre for GenCon '09! FOR FREEEE!!
My mother is a newspaper editor, and with all the butt-kissing she receives from other companies to get featured on her paper, the media department for GenCon Australia have given her 4 free tickets to the event. She didn't want them, so now they're MINE!
I'm taking my 3 friends with me, and we are going to have a blast. I'll be wearing my infamous GF6 hat, so be on the lookout for me! Say hi. :D
The event is filled with interactive entertainment, with not just video games. Also including traditional LIFE SIZED games, such as Giant Jenga. There will be video game tournaments, including Guitar Hero and Super Smash Brothers Brawl. There will be, of course, the usual roll of cosplayers, I had plans of going as the TF2 scout, unfortunately I haven't had any time to prepare.
It's going to be a good day.
