    Please can someone explain what these community parties and meet ups are all about and provide details? How do I join one or go to one? Can anyone go?

    Traditionally (based on one year's experience) the Saturday community party is a piss-up in a pub. Invitation via some mechanism to be announced soonish (last year you had to donate to charity via the justgiving site). Anyone (of a legal age) can go.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Hurray, the forum's working again. We've added GRID 2 to the games line up. First time in the world that it'll be playable. Also, on Saturday at 3pm Codemasters will present the game in detail at a developer session.

    Who here has been? Worth going? Never been to any gaming event before, sure it will be pretty good. Do you generally have to wait ages to see each game?

    i went for the first time last year and it was epic, booked my ticket day one this year.

    honestly, i spent the first hour or so like a kid in a candy shop wanting to see do find everything. i left a few hours early (was with a friend who wanted to leave - this time im on my own) but managed to get round and play the majority of the games, there are large queue's for the biggest games but they go down quite steadily

    I'd imagine Thursday would be the quietest day. No doubt Venatio can say otherwise.

    I also found Sundays to be quite an easy day. Busiest by far is the Saturday.

    Yeah, Thursday will be the quietest. It generally gets quieter later on in the afternoon on all days though.

    Cool, will avoid Saturday. Either Thursday or Sunday then. Think I'm off Thursday.

    It will be my first EG Expo too.

    Will I be subject to 'hazing' ?
  • Deleted user 8 August 2012 18:27:38
    What is hazing?

    Hazing -
    Hazing is the practice of various rituals and other activities involving harassment, abuse or humiliation used as a way of initiating a person into a group.

    What by a scary group of hairy geeks?

    Sign up here. Don't expect any details (or El_Muerko to update the OP) any time soon though.

    Always commenting on my comments. If I bother you that much just ignore me?

    I was only saying the generic stereotype of a gamer, hardly a serious comment.

    Poor psychokitten, she's very sensitive about how hairy and scary she is. You've opened old wounds there.

    I totally called it.

    Then put in a smiley :p
    I think it's only the second time I have replied to you for what it's worth!

    All our hazings are mostly imaginary, but they are scary nonetheless :D
    It mostly involves Ignatius Cheese groping people

    Two other things about Thursdays
    1) Some of the stands are still getting their shit together, so you might not get as many freebies as you would on a friday
    2) some of the stands are still getting their shit together, so if stealing PS3 controllers or TurtleBeach headsets from the demo pods is your thing, Thursday is the day to do it

    The general rule is to ask for a demo, complement the demoer on what a great game it is, receive freebies. Watching/doing a demo might lead to a purchase
    Also, sign up to the PSN network thing of facebook, Sony hand out stuff via that route. Look for QR codes on posters. Attend developer sessions.

    You get t-shirts at dev sessions sometimes. I really like the Prey 2 one from last year! Some freebies at other stands as mentioned, like if you play their demo (CS:GO for instance gave shirts and a beta code). With a lot of others you might have to be ballsy and ask, as they might have small amount of stock. I got a boatload of freebies last year :D
