It’ll be one of those ultra-rare times when I actually leave the house to do something vaguely sociable! I hadn’t heard of this until yesterday when a friend mentioned it to me. It’s a gaming tournament being held in London’s West End where the proceeds of the even go to the charity of the winner’s choosing. I’ve not been to any of the JJ organised events in the past but I know they’ve been around long enough to know how to do this sort of thing properly.

The entry cost is £5 for playerz or £3 for spectators. I’ll most definitely fall into the second category as I have difficulty beating a computer, let alone a motivated and skilled human opponent! However, I always enjoy a good display of solid gaming skills so I’m confident I’ll have a giggle.

I’m also really looking forward to meeting up with a handful of the folk that told me about this and rubbing shoulders with some people who’s opinions I respect and admire.

  1. Who knows, I might even have the guts to play you Ryan – particularly if you’re handicapped by having to use a conventional Xbox pad rather than your arcade stick.

    See you there 🙂

  2. Ha, you know what? Given it’ll be on pad, I’m going to crash and burn pretty badly. I’m also entering Battlefield 2. Don’t know why really. I don’t want to win, just piss some people off with camping sniper tactics. Anyway Koff, I shall see you there!
