James Wallis levels with you

I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.

A quick note—I am not dead, merely busy—to notify you that the final London Gamer Geeks meeting of 2007 is tomorrow night, Wednesday 28th November, at our usual venue downstairs at the College Arms on Store Street, from 6.30pm onwards. Special events this time include:

SWAPSIES! Bring games you’ve finished to swap with others! See if we can hear the CEX staff gnashing their teeth all the way from the other side of Goodge Street. (Boardgames and cardgames included.)

GAME OF THE YEAR! It’s been an extraordinary year for games. What do you think is the Game of the Year? Testify and vote!

LIVE BLOG! Prepare a 90-second presentation on something that’s been on your mind about games lately. See how many people ‘digg’ you.

NO QUIZ! By special arrangement, there will be no quiz this time.

BRING A FRIEND. If you have any.

    Discussing “Game of the Year”? This has to be a shibboleth for identifying people who haven’t yet played Super Mario Galaxy.

    1. It’s been a heck of a year. Orange Box, Bioshock, Halo 3, Rock Band, CoD4, Mass Effect… and that’s just the Xbox 360 titles.
    2. I have never played a Mario game I actually liked. (Apart from Donkey Kong, that was quite fun.)

  3. Lee Maguire says:

    pffft. You were equally dismissive of “Resident Evil 4”, which would have been my Game of the Year 2005 (if I hadn’t waited until 2006 to actually play it).

    In the future they’ll dispense with most of the tools of psychiatric diagnosis and just ask people if they like Mario games. Apparently you’ll be getting a big fat tick in the ‘psycho’ box, my friend.

    I remain dismissive of Resident Evil 4. The zombie-shooting is quite fun. The searching-the-area-to-find-money-to-pay-a-merchant-for-better-equipment is a stupid RPG mechanic that has no place in the survival-horror genre, and ruins both atmosphere and gameplay.
