Its looking quite organised already. Does this mean I won't have to stay until midnight setting up this year?

On the train now, knocking up some promo material for a new game I'm showing. I'll need to get it printed when I arrive, I'm hoping the local Boots has a quick photo printing service to knock me out a couple of 15"x10"s.

If you see me this year, please come up and say hello. A lot of forum members mentioned that they were too shy to chat to me last year, which is silly as I'm a loveable approachable bloke ;)

I'm hoping to have some new issues of the mag again, but our shipment has been waterlogged, so I'm not sure how many I'll rescue. Basically if you see a cheerful fat guy with a receding hairline and a copy of Retro Gamer with Final Fantasy VII on the cover, then it'll be me (or a subscriber with an early copy ;) )

I'm also going to try and get a badge made up as well.

I'm glad you added that you'll be holding the new issue - as you described 90% of the Retro community! :lol:

The Scots contingent is amassing. Mine's a pint ;)

With the author's approval, I'll be showing an Oric Skool Daze conversion WIP to the public at Replay tomorrow.

This is a sneak preview of the display I plan to use next to the Oric:

I'll be very interested to hear Mr Kelk's opinion on it.

Looking forward to this now. Bringing the brother in law along on the Saturday.

I'll bring my Replay crew t-shirt from Eurogamer along in case I can be of any use on Sunday. Happy to be prodded around to take photo's of stuff as I am planning on taking plenty anyway.

Afterparty should be a winner :D

See you all there!
