TheNomad writes "This past Monday, the first ever Edinburgh International Games Festival was held. In the middle of the massive Edinburgh Festival cultural season, this is an interesting development for games and gaming. There's a review of the event over at Machinima.com, including details on Peter Molyneux's demo of Fable, the BBC's TV series/game, Fightbox, and other cool stuff." FightBox, a TV show which is "...a gladiatorial arena-style competition between virtual characters, created by members of an online community who compete... to get a chance of appearing on the show itself", is particularly interesting.
