"That's What She Said": Why Mainstream Media Portrayals of Gamers Matter
Wombat Theatre
Saturday, July 20
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Nerd, geek, troll, basement dweller, spree killer: mainstream media’s treatment of gamers is rarely accurate or flattering, but it does matter to the greater community. What can be done, what should be done, and who should be doing it?

Gamers TNG: Breeding The Next Generation
Wombat Theatre
Friday, July 19
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

There’s a new generation of gamers on the way. Gamers whose parents are gamers, too. Gamers whose parents "get it". But as one of those parents, what’s the best way to raise a new gamer from scratch?

Our panel searches for the place between non-stop gaming and strictly controlled access for the best way to raise a well-adjusted, well-rounded next-generation gamer.

Bonus round: can gaming parents help other parents understand a better way to let kids game?

Live coverage on Gamespot and Twitch E3 style or just (gasp) post-event videos?

I wish I could be there but sadly I'm living at the other side of the globe.... ;)


But I'm looking forward to Gamespot's coverage of PAX Aus. I was impressed by the Gamespot video coverage of E3 and I'm curious if Team Australia will continue where the Team USA ended..... ;)

@Pawfalcon With Comic-Con overlapping, we'll be attacking PAX with video-on-demand. Don't worry, we'll have plenty to watch, so keep an eye on the site over the weekend.

@Chippa7 @Pawfalcon But.. the comic-con coverage ended (for today) just as this started o.o;

Will there be surprise streams? Should I leave twitch open?
