hey guys, firstly its Saturday the 26th rather than 27, the 27th is sunday! I just updated the thread info

and secondly, yes I will be going although it looks like I won't be staying over :( I must drive back the same night to pick the wife up as she is going to a concert that night and as her shoulder has been in a sling for a while due to keyhole surgery I don't want to risk her having any problems. And plus I haven't really got the money for the Travel Lodge at the moment. But I will definitely be there until around 8pm or so!

Without doubt the best Video Game Carnival yet, can't remember the last time I laughed so much!

For those who want to see the photos then look HERE!

dcultrapro got a video of it all which he will post in due course.

My personal highlights were:

  • Playing 3 player Comlynx on California Games, Checkered Flag and Rampart on the Lynx.
  • Planning out our shenanigans for Revival with the Retro Lords.
  • Finally getting to play on an Intellivision.
  • Crazy 8 player Saturn Bomberman!
  • Visiting Kart Klub.

does anyone know who that wierdo is that starts talking to me about the Lynx? He had glasses I think and had a woolly hat on, he played in the Mario Kart 64 comp when I was playing, bit of an anorak.

Anyway never mind it was a great day, can't wait for the next one!

he was just obnoxious to a point... we were sat there with the lynx' on the table and everyone was getting ready to play bomberman Saturn when he came round and just started babbling at me and Chris about the Lynx like we knew him and CARED what he thought... but yeah, you go to a show like this and you expect to meet the odd dribbling nut bar lol
