Eurogamer Expo 2013: September 26th-29th, London
Is this thing on? How do I do this? Who are you people? Who the hell thought it would be a good idea to make me European Community Manager? Nerds. [Photo by the uber-talented @kirth]
Now that I've obtained that mythical and totally-useful-to-society-at-large BA, I should probably do my damn job around here. Eurogamer Expo, arguably the highlight of the DtoidEU calendar (because... MCM), is now only two months away!
In keeping with recent years, the convention is going to be held at Earl's Court, London. Tickets can be obtained here for the mildly eye-watering price of £15 for a day ticket or £10 for an afternoon, with Saturday and Sunday tickets having already sold out. Sure ain't what it used to be, folks.
Our presence at the expo has admittedly dwindled in recent years as we abandon games in the noble pursuit of food, alcohol and each other's company, but there will be plenty going on throughout the weekend. To give you an idea of what we get up to, here's last year's itinerary and some photos by the lovely AceFlibble.
The Saturday night is usually taken up by the traditional StickTwiddler afterparty in aid of Special Effect, while Sunday evening is dedicated to some drinks before we all go home. We'll be sure to get a group meal in at some point, too.
Planning usually takes place in the DtoidEU mailer and any questions can also be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. stfuajpg.
Who the fuck is panchromatic?
On the plus side, no more FP selloutism.
You'll need to resign my shirt.
(Your current location is making me cry.)
Can I have my username changed to Beccy [reeeeeeedacted] please?
I thought I'd have no ID for EG but I do so I might do more. On one hand I miss you guys so much but on the other hand I will have a greater ability to see everyone after September because I'll have enough money for these things. Right now I'm just trying to survive through the summer holidays.
MAKE THE DECNARP AND #JUANUARY2014 THREADS PLS.

Reason: STFU SAM
I'll get on the DecNARP one after Eurogamer. Mid-October at the earliest.
I didn't realise a whole Eurogamer has happened between the one with the group photo on the tank even though I was there.
Not 100% committed to the idea, but I'm more likely down for EG than I was last year. Just need to decide whether to get rid of my prior ticket to something else. Train prices aren't bad this year either.
I know, right? This'll be my fourth year going. It's mental.

Hey, been a while since I've popped in the forums, but want to keep on top of what's going on. Don't really want to wait till DecNARP to see everyone again!
I'm not going to miss DecNARP for the world this year! If I have to quit my job to go, I will.
December bar work is lame, anyway.
Beccy I sent you an important email. Please respond.
I'll come, but only if I'm allowed to be in the picture this time
This is how EG is going down this year:
Sexual tension all round.
How's that for a slice of fried gold?
That line was only there for show. I don't actually check my email, lulz.

Now I know where to avoid that weekend.
Can we just make it London as a whole? The UK? Europe?
Well, I'll be glad to meet you guys again. I've already got a four-day pass, because no matter how many times I try to play on everything I want, I don't. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy being there though.
Like I said, will join you guys when I can and I'll include Glowbear's NARP in my plans.
Also, I haven't visited the Heart of Gaming place in Acton or the Loading bar. Are there any plans to visit these places during the Expo?
