GameCity Breakfasts: You're all going to die.

It's the most important meal of the day!

The sad fact is that all of us, one day, will be dust. All the people you've known, the pets you've loved, the houses you've lived in and, yes, the games you've played, will be gone.

Luckily, there are at least three people in the world who care enough to do something about it. They can't grant you immortality, bring back your hamster, of rebuild your childhood home, but they can preserve your games.

Maybe.

Come along to this lighthearted breakfast, order some toast and ponder your own mortality as those charged with saving games for future generations take your questions about what we should remember and how. This might be your last chance to convince them that your favourite horse grooming simulator should cheat death and be preserved forever.

Decompressed : Live Podcast Recording

DECOMPRESSED is the world's premier comics craft podcast. Or, at least, the premier comics craft podcast which is hosted by Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-men, Journey Into Mystery, Phonogram) and a series of guests, each of whom pick over the minutiae of a recently released issue. This is a rare chance to see DECOMPRESSED live, and its HOT! COMIC CRAFT! CHAT! At the very least, see the bits Kieron cuts because they're inevitably too libelous.


Kieron Gillen was an award winning games journalist and critic, until he got bored of doing that. Now he's an award winning comics writer. He's not bored yet.

Presented in association with Page 45.
