    i31 Goes On - Come Rain or More Rain...

    Thousands gathered in the wind and rain for MultiPlay's i31 games convention at Newbury Racecourse - Nick braved the UK summer to bring you some exclusive reports - and see GIRLS ALOUD hand out ca$h !
    Watch the show.

    Was it the camaraderie - the ladies from Girls Aloud - access to games like Crysis - the spirit of community - or the sheer greed for all that ca$h that drove well over a thousand people to camp out in fields in the pouring rain me-wonders ?

    Whatever the true answer - well played to MultiPlay for another great event

    I kept 6 trusted serving men, they taught me all I knew.
    There names were what and where and why and how and when and who.

    I'll have to check this later at home.

    I expect some tongue-in-cheek comments from Nick as usual

    i32 should be a fun event - I miss LAN's as they are great fun and you meet some really cracking people to boot ( such as bobster, platinum and beanz )

    Hello, I was at i31. Would like to add two comments-

    1. on the whole people we definitely not there for GA.
    2. what kind of journalism do you call that? it was hot and sunny more or less the entire weekend with one rain shower at about 4AM one night..!

    Artistic license journalism ?


    To be honest - I did not get a chance to discuss it with Nick cos he has left on a plane to Leipzig to get the low down on the next generation of gaming goodies...
    ...so I made like a graphic card - took Mexico on the left - London on the right - and interpolated HEAVY RAIN from 'A' to 'B' - but that's between you and I - OK ?

    Humble apologies...

    It was taking too long to go up and down each photo to try and read the actual amount on the cheque!
    Next time, we will hook up with Tom in advance and get the data 100% accurate
    (that's 3,000% in Ugandan percentages Lee !)

    I kept 6 trusted serving men, they taught me all I knew.
