Journalists Discuss: Actual Ethics in Game Journalism LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

We will discuss everything from embargoes and relationships with PR, to advertising in the face of a free press and the polarization of social gaming topics such as race, gender, and sexual orientation.
