Sounds like the party will actually be quite good this year, been to previous ones which were something of a washout. Gutted i won't be going to this one as i'm only going to the expo on saturday this year (normally do the full weekend but just can't this year for various reasons) and therefore won't be staying in manchester overnight, hope it all goes well though, have a good one guys
Visit www.youtube.com/replayretro . why? well erm, cos it would be awfully friendly of you to take a look i guess, you don't have to though, nobody will make you *sob sob*

Long story short I was supposed to be coming with a mate this year who at last minute has told me that he cannot make it.

Does anyone have a bed/floor/bath that I could kip on for the Saturday night. Will pay some cash and buy a pint and could even chuck in a se*ual favour I want to go that much. :wink:

Thanks

with flyers & cards its a case of common courtesy!

If you ask permission then its generally fine, if you don't, they get binned!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...

Rob Hubbard and Ben Daglish are set to join the ‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ film directors Nicola and Anthony Caulfield live on stage at Play Expo!

We have the pleasure of announcing that video game composer legends Rob Hubbard and Ben Daglish will be joining the ‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ film directors Nicola and Anthony Caulfield live on stage on Saturday 12th October at 12:00pm.

‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ is a documentary feature film that tells the story of the UK Video games Industry and features new interviews with a vast number of British developers, musicians and journalists from across the last 30 years, in fact the filmmakers were actually shooting some of those very interviews at PlayExpo 2012 last year.

What we will be ‘seeing’ and indeed ‘hearing’ is being kept under wraps at this stage but we can tell you that the filmmakers are planning to show exclusive, unseen material from the movie as well as play some excerpts from the film’s soundtrack which is being created exclusively for the film by Rob Hubbard, Ben Daglish and Max Hall.

For more information on the movie ‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ visit http://www.frombedroomstobillions.com

From Bedrooms to Billions talk – Saturday 12th October 12:00pm – 1:15pm
Noooooooooooo! I was really looking forward to this, but it looks like I'm gonna miss it as I'll be picking up friends from the airport & train station when it's on. POOP!

Just got back from Bali / Singapore and despite the Jet-Lag am really looking forward to the event now! :)

Unless G-Man has changed up the roles since I last mailed him, I'll be working on the front door collecting / selling tickets - so say hi when you see me!

Ta,
