The convention features an Indie Showcase, concerts, tournaments and panels touching on a range of topics from "Making Your Nerd Job a Reality" to "Intro to Game Collecting" to "Write Your Own Nintendo Music."
The convention's gaming marketplace will include "tens of thousands of video games," rare games, prototypes, new games and classic systems available to purchase.
