the Videogame Expo is scheduled for 11/21 - 11/23. there's a career workshop (very worthwhile), games to play, history exhibits. There are game tournaments and competitions. There are even robots and anime for when you want a break from videogames.
Here's the URL for the Expo - http://www.videogame.net/vgxpo/
I hope some of hte students from the Intro to Games & Society class can go. The entrance fee is low. hopefully we can carpool. We have have to find some available hotel rooms that we can afford.
I went a couple of years ago when it was much smaller and in Valley Forge, PA (near the King of Prussia mall). It was well organized conference even then. Here are a couple of pics I took. Check out the guy on the left playing Duck Hunt. I couldn't get near the QBert machine the whole weekend.
