On Thursday September 16th we were lucky enough to attend and support a very special event. IRL (In Real Life) was dubbed to be the comeback party we all needed and were all waiting for; it delivered spectacularly! For many of us this was the first chance to attend a games event in nearly two years, you could tell from the atmosphere in the rooms that a lot of old friends were seeing each other again. With games, music, a live performer and an awards ceremony to soak in, it really was an incredible night for all that made it there.
We ran a couple of competitions on our retro gaming tables which was a lot of fun and got us talking to people we hadn’t met before. The scores seemed to get lower as the night went on which can only really be blamed on the free bar. Congratulations to Mark from SIDE Audio for winning the Ms Pac-Man competition, and Tomi & Ben from Bastion for taking home the win playing 1942.
A big thank you to Biz Media for putting this event on. Myself, Kim, Brandon and JJ all had a fun-filled evening and it was easily worth the slightly sore head the next morning.
