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!
