If you go to the [url="http://www.agdc.com.au"]AGDC[/url] site you may realise that the new date is the 20th to the 23rd of November. I'm not sure how much this affects most university students, but this is at the tail end of the exam period for me! Bummer. Might have to miss out on the event, I've already emailed pon chaleune about it - and I doubt the event's date will get changed this year, but at least if you were planning to go, and now can't (that is - you are in the same situation as me), then email the (edit)gal so she knows that she's losing attendees(/edit whoops) :(
I'm not sure what the benefit of having the AGDC earlier in mid-late november is - most games due for the holiday season would have finished crunch time by then and would be in the publishers hands by wouldn't they?
I don't want to see this event become un-attendable by uni students!
