If it hadn’t been for my holiday next month I would have been there to enjoy the spectacle that UK Games Expo is! Thanks to the whole OTT team though, I’m getting the next best thing to actually being there and without all the push and shove that comes with such a large event! Thanks guys for providing first class coverage …. as always!

It´s a little shame you don´t take photos of the Stand of Starry Games.
They have the minis of the Limbo Kickstarter and I hope to can see it in good quality photos:

I hope to bring my son along for our first UKGE, when he’s old enough to start gaming. He’s 9 months now, so that shouldn’t be too far off 😉
