I hope you can make it dude :)
Just over 3 weeks to go! I'm looking forward to having a few beers and playing some Arcade machines and some Rock Band (If it's there again) ;)
It would take a lot to stop me being there, got my ps2 and psp collections to finish buying for. And one or two forum members to meet up with

You know what I mean Prinny, I leave and realise there are forum members I haven't seen, in these events it's so easy up to miss people!

My girlfriend and I shall be heading up to this Friday lunchtime and will be there all day Saturday. I have acquired some 'distinctive'' clothing to go with her outfit so we should be fairly easy to spot...

It's worth noting that one of the England World Cup Rugby matches in being held in Manchester on the 10th so accommodation might start becoming scarce... I've just checked the Premierinn that i'm booked into and it is now fully booked up :|

Think it'll just be the Saturday or the Sunday for me and Mrs Slick this year. Still not bought my tickets yet as we haven't decided on which day. I'm leaning to the Sunday though as it tends to be a bit quieter.

I just found out there are going to be some smash bros tournaments at the expo so consider me there. I've been wanting to go Play since I first found out about the Blackpool ones years ago.
