Managed to beat most of the queue so only had to wait 5 mins and got on the robot game (the one a bit like Armoured Core). Seemed really good, but didn't quite seem as "amazing" as The Hawk suggested.
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Two things to bear in mind,
1) I'm used to playing games on either an Atari 2600 or a Spectrum...or at best a Mega Drive.
2) I may have had a few beers & I'm enthusiastic about EVERYTHING when I'm hideously drunk. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Should've kept reading! ;)
Later on we decided to give the VR Oculus prototype a go. Oh my word! Now I knew what The Hawk had been talking about. It was amazing! Had me ducking and diving, and even made me think twice about walking over a beam with a big drop either side (thanks vertigo). T'was excellent - far more fun than the games on the official stand! Was also fun watching others on it as you could see what they were seeing (unlike the official stand).
The prototype was amazing! I want it :D

I've just realised, I never wrote up a review on the expo this year, I'll have to get one done.
