    PC Gamer Showdown Piccies!

    You may be disappointed here, since because my digital camera is useless and seems to think perfectly good batteries are flat, I could only take a few photos on my phone. However, I believe Mitch took a few pictures, including a probably quite embarrassing group photo of all of us, so they will be posted soon as well hopefully.

    The upsides of the PCGSD included not actually having to spend any money at all apart from transport, since we won our tickets free off the internet, and because Rustlers were giving away free ready-cooked burgers throughout the day we didn't need to buy any food. Another upside was not having to queue at all really to play on Far Cry 2, and Far Cry 2 being awesome once you were on it.

    The downsides included there being 12 Xbox 360's together, two of which played fairly decent games, and the other 12 played some crappy Tiger Woods golfing game. I mean, who actually likes Golf?

    It was a good day overall, being able to play on games you'd been waiting for and meeting up with other members of ATK, anyway here are the photos:

    And this is why we didn't play Left 4 Dead. Yes that's right, WE DIDN'T PLAY LEFT 4 DEA

    Far Cry 2 was pure liquid awesome. Despite the fact the demo guy who was keeping an eye on everything looked kind of grumpy and bored.

    yeah he really looked like he wanted to play but was told not to. Far Cry was fun though As was Mirror's Edge.





    Bloo destroyed half of Africa though, and played the entire Mirror's Edge demo level TWICE! : P

    That really is gay that you didn't get to play Left 4 Dead, it was one of the main reasons I wanted to go! Did you watch people playing, what was it like?

    Far Cry 2 sound awesome, I guess it lived up to your expectations ?

    Wish I could have gone, but there's always next year lol. How was the exhibition in comparison to i34, and where was the LAN held? If it was in the same "gamer's paradise" area, what was in all of the empty space, since there were only 500 PCs for the LAN?

    EDIT: more importantly, did you get any free stuff ?!?!

    Got tons of free stuff and peirs mate turned down a free warhammer collectors editon :S

    the lan was held in the same place as the exhibition and could have only had 300 ish people at peak.

    Dignitas also stole pretty much every prize.

    Playing CoD4 after playing Far Cry 2 confused me, it was so quick and fast-paced compared to Far Cry 2. Especially in that weird bubble thing as well.

    Far Cry 2 got 94% in PCG this month, really can't wait to play it. The dome thing looks pretty cool, though pretty impractical at home xD. Oh and damn Pier's mate for turning down WAR collector's edition, would have liked one of them xD (for the art book).

    That bubble thing was pretty bizarre, and far too overpriced considering all it is is a half sphere frame covered in white plastic.

    The exhibition I guess was better than the i34 one, but only really because just about all the games featured hadn't come out yet. All of the event was in the hall where the exhibition was held at i34, just split in two, with the lan party on the other side. Free stuff included The Guinness Book of Records Gamer's Edition, a PCGSD t-shirt, two magazines, a foam Darwinia thingy, some Rustler's junk and a load of flyers.
