What better way to celebrate the spring break - spring break, woo! - than by picking up an electronic copy of our magazine for half price? Alas, it doesn't contain any chocolate eggs or bunnies.

The EB Games expo returns for its third year, and is being held at Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park. As well as the likes of third- and first-party publishers, the TV show Robot Wars will also attend with their big, boisterous bots.
