The Good Gear Guide attends Australia's biggest videogames expo and reports back on everything from Avatar 3-D to booth babes.

By our calculation, there are around 70-odd stands vying for punters' attention - covering everything from Wii-projectors to remote-controlled helicopters. As we step into the chaos, men in overalls run hither and thither in a mad attempt to get everything ready for the public's arrival. In the next hour, the hall will be filled with gamers, cos-players, audiophiles and assorted passers-by; all eager to check out the latest products in digital entertainment."
