Potentially. Do you know exactly where/when?

I have to work Friday and have an afternoon investor presentation which I cannot get out of, but could attend something late afternoon/early evening, provided they wouldn't mind me pitching up in a suit :)

I'd rather you attended in a suit. The black t-shirt and jeans look is so tired.

Great!

You have my email address to send me the details etc?

I will mostly be wearing a business suit, no tie or top hat. I'll probably stick out like a sore thumb, or look like a 'marketing bloke', but at least it'll give me some excuse when I get soundly thrashed by the other 'L33T' gamers there :)

o/

Hopefully I'll get enough from it to enable me to write a decent preview/hands-on piece.

Hopefully if it's anything like any of the Duke Nukem events in the states, it'll probably all take place in Spearmint Rhino and your ability to headshot may be slightly impaired by a sweaty lapdancer jiggling all over your crotch at inopportune moments.

Nice, can't wait to hear how it goes F_P! Remember though, you're an ambassador for AATG so don't do anything we wouldn't do!

(checks list)

Oh, there isn't anything. Carry on then...

No mention of lapdancers, but the promise of beer and burgers :)

Never been to anything like this, so don't know what to expect, except an evening of gaming, drinking and general debauchery.

Should be brilliant!

Only advice I can impart about things like these is "lig your fucking arse off!" (ie grab all the freebies offered to you or just lying around because if you don't, there'll be plenty of other 'proper games journalists' who will :)

Only a couple of hours till Flying Pig gets a pair of 44ds shoved rudely into his face before wishing he'd brought an extra pair of pants with 'im!

I predict the event will be a 2/10 on the sexy scale. The 2 is due to those attractive ladies who tell you about the game as you play.

The missing 8 is from the LACK of lapdancing and being surrounded by other gaming "journos".

You're probably right, there's no way this could go like the US press events did. Which is a shame.

Not even a quick happy finish as a reward for headshotting a pig guard.

Getting all excited. Leaving in about 10 minutes to ensure I don't get there early, but am not too late to miss all the fun :)

iPhone camera at the ready :D

I'll let you all know how it goes tomorrow

Well, I survived.

It was very much as expected; lots of sweaty men in a dark room, huddled around a bank of PCs listening to loud music.

Sadly no strippers (it was a strictly clothes on affair), but it was good fun.

All I can tell you about the game is that it exists and is finished, ready for release next month. I'm embargo'd against revealing more until Tuesday lunchtime. (I'll email my article Monday)

NY - unless you have very particular tastes, I cannot imagine anyone there would have been of interest :)

Lots of jeans, black t-shirts and beards.

My theory is that reports on the strippers are also embargoed.

Someone on AATG has taken out a super-injunction.

That's all I'm legally allowed to say.

You're in breach of a super injunction if you admit that a super injunction exists you know.
