London Gaming Con: The Report

There’s something about human contact, isn’t there? I haven’t been seen around here so much lately, but if you mention that there’s a meet-up somewhere close to me, I’ll be there. People, with their strange, squishy bodies and minds. Man, I love ’em. You might not be surprised, then, when I tell you that the idea of covering London Gaming Con for Sonic Retro appealed to me. Put a bunch of gamers in the Rocket Complex, add internet celebrities and sprinkle a bit of technology about the place, then bake for a couple of days. That’s my kind of weekend.

Well actually, it was my kind of Sunday because the Saturday was taken up with a family wedding. As a result, I missed out on Dr. Ashen, CoLD SToRAGE and the busier of the two days. What I didn’t miss was the Super Sonic Sunday programme of events, which sought to celebrate our blue hero as his 20th anniversary year draws to a close. You can see some of these events in the video below:

Of course, that’s only part of the story. Do you want to see pics and things? Of course you do. Click the post break already.

Bad Sonic Cosplay, Britland Edition

It’s no secret that Great Britain loves celebrating made-up holidays, from “Bank Holiday” to “Another Bank Holiday.” Our friends across the pond need to learn to celebrate true national holidays, but alas, their newest blunder is “National Dress Like a Videogame Character Day.” The hard-hitting Metro has provided complete coverage of the inaugural celebration, and of course, Sonic was represented in the “festivities.”

Oh, who am I kidding. This is really all just pretense to post a bad photo.

Enjoy your evening, folks.
