In case you missed the big header above this post, the Canberra Games Festival is on this weekend!
The organisers have a PDF file of what's in the schedule for the festival which you can grab by clicking here. Of great note is the chance to tour the Micro Forte Canberra studio, a Digital Art workshop, and the Irrational Games "Tribes: Vengeance" focus testing on Saturday and Sunday (11am to 5pm). An excellant chance to see/play the beta and meet some of the Irrational guys!
Entry is free for selected activities, while others like workshops, tournaments, and lans are affordably priced between $2 to $20! If you're in Canberra, it looks like an event that's definately not worth missing!
