News, events and GAMMA.CON!

Hey everyone,

First a few bits of administration. Next Wednesday (21/5) we will have our screenings in MCCT6 instead of MCCT3. Also the MCC Foyer has been booked out for another event so we may not have space for boardgames.

Next- Holiday screenings are coming up. If you have any suggestions tell them to our Screenings Co-ordinator.

Also a few other groups are running a few cool events over the next few weeks. The newly reformed ANU PC Gaming Club is running a LoL tournament the the Computer Science Students Association is running Epic Games Night 7 on May the 23rd.

And of course GAMMA.CON is in one week’s time. So far they have announced:

– guest appearances of Cam from Hanabee, Jeremy ‘Junglist’ Ray and the 501st Legion

– screening showcases from Siren Visual, Hanabee, Madman and LCA

– next gen PS4 and XBOX One console gaming from PAX Australia

– games arcade from iPlay Belconnen including DDR!

– live events including a Costume Comp, Talent Quest, Auction, Magic Show, LARP demonstration and Kabuki performance.

– a slew of local game developers showing off their games including one with an Oculus Rift

– panel schedule including an anime panel featuring Hanabee staff, a game journalism panel featuring Junglist, a costuming panel with the Australian Costume Guild, a game development panel lead by the Academy of Interactive entertainment, a Lights Canberra Action film making panel

– part of the global MTG: Journey into Nyx Games Day

– art competitions

And there is much more to come! To find out the details for all this stuff check out their website- there are too many things for me to give you links to them all! Tickets can still be bought online for $16 or at the door for $20 (cash only).

Plus you can (and should) still preregister for the costume comp, the art comp, the talent quest and register lots for the auction

Ja mata!




Reminder- Pizza Night and special CIT Screenings

Just a quick one to remind people that this Friday we are having a pizza night. Pizza will be free for members and there will be large quantities of soft drink on sale for very cheap prices.

Also next Wednesday is the special CIT screenings night- I’ve attached a cool poster image to show people what is on. I should point out that we’re still in MCCT3- the CIT people are coming to visit us, we’re not meeting over at CIT.

See you all around!
