Good seeing everybody :) - I brought along my mate from my web dev work, and though he didn't enter he did have a great time so he should be good for a few events as well :)

So yay :)

Really nice event at the Lass :D
Great to do a little more socialising than playing Pac Man for ages :wink: Glad Crystal Castles was in the line up. Love that game :)
Some female gamers were getting 'rubbish' scores on Bomb Jack, 200k compared to my 8k :oops: , you know who you are :lol:

Here's some photos from the lass. Sorry if I caught anyone's bald spots. You were all feverishly gaming away :lol:
Seeyou all next time (Play Expo I guess)

So... Anyone else going to be uploading pictures/videos etc? Forgot my camera, but noticed a lot of people flashing (NOT IN THAT WAY) over the weekend.

Just to say it was a great weekend for both me and my brother Lee, who rather uncharacteristically was a big help to me and Mat lol, and we both managed to log very respectable percentages for a guy with a gammy hand and another with no gaming practice for years.

Was great catching up with all my usual gaming scene buddies and a pleasure sponsoring the event. Big thanks to the new customers it raised, praise and comments from many respected gamers about our machines' quality, and to everyone for respecting not just the classic cabs but our machines too by not spilling anything or breaking anything! Oh, and I'm really pleased Crystal Castles was played on our demo machine asa the trackball is now properly 'bedded in' and I can play all my favourite trackball games more smoothly woot!

Just thought I should give a mention too to Danny Curley (Euro Sega Champion during the 90's with various TV spots and gaming press contributions) who just happened to be back in Mancs during the weekend and enjoyed a chat and a pint with us in the Lass on Saturday afternoon.

I know we'rre not often mentioned here at RG but I hope you all had a good weekend, enjoyed playing on our machines and if we had time, our conversations too!
