I think it's pretty much if you want one, say so here.

I feel I ought to mention the Replay Programme/Magazine... SirClive, the designer and myself have been slogging away at this for the past few weeks and it looks great and has tons of interesting articles in it, some of which were written by your fellow forum members.

Articles include pieces on Donkey Kong, Sim City, Batman, Virtual Reality, the Atari VCS, Accessible Gaming, Buck Rogers, Resident Evil, Bounder, a nostalgic look back at the Arcades, and much much more. I hope you'll pick it up and enjoy it... Not sure what the price is yet but it should be worth every penny! ;)

Well, at almost the last minute I've decided I can make it this year.

Train fares are a bit steep though. I know it's a bit of a long shot with the event being so close, but is anyone else travelling up from the South Coast and has a couple of seats spare? I am coming with a friend (well, 3 friends actually but the other two are coming from different parts of the country).

Cheers Witchy, it certainly has been a slog, but I am delighted by how it looks and the quality of the articles. It is 50% bigger than last years mag, but we are selling it at the same price of £4. But for people who didn't get last years they can get the pair for only a fiver (whilst stocks of issue 1 last)! They will initially be sold at the expo, but we will no doubt offer them on here too after the event.

Ok, so you were probably hoping for a little more detail(!) but this is how the overall layout is looking ...

To me, it looks like what's marked as the "Games Room" is where everything was last year. So yes, looking absolutely massiver to me :D

Find out how much train/coach fares are to Bournemouth or Poole - if they are a big saving you can come up with me. I will be leaving sometime in the early afternoon on Friday..... :D
