Lastly- GAMMA.CON Tickets are now on sale and everyone should go- it is going to be an awesome event!.Also the GAMMA.Squad are looking for volunteers to help out on the day so if you want to help Canberra’s pop culture convention be awesome you should volunteer.

Also we’ve been sent a request by a researcher from the University of Queensland for people to partake in some videogame research:

Want to get involved in real science research?
The QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute is seeking volunteers to participate in a 30-45min online survey on internet use and videogaming.
