    Recording stuff is actually banned this year, but I'm sure it'll be streamed over SegaSonicRadio and/or RadioSEGA for those not in attendance.

    Woot. I should be able to go this year. Just need to get the Sunday and Monday off work and I will be all set!
     
  3. Individual registration of all group members?

    Fuck that, I'm not finding addresses and next-of-kins of people living in Wales, my group can register themselves!

    Any of you guys up for adopting a loner for the day?

    Blimey, we've got quite a few registrations already. It's nearly 400 right now, I believe. o_o

    Oh, in case you guys were looking for another reason to come and see me in a lovely green shirt, <a href="http://www.summerofsonic.com/blog/sonic-colours-wii-playable-at-sos-2010" target="_blank">we'll be showing Sonic Colours on Wii too</a>. :]
     
  7. I want to hear REAL fans reactions to these games. That is all I want from SoS right now.

    Wow, Sonic Colours too?! Sounds like you guys are going all out this year.

    Just a quick question, will there be merchandise available at the event by any chance? I find it really difficult to get hold of any decent Sonic merch, and importing just cost far too much.

    Merch is a bit of a funny one, because it goes beyond the simple relationship of fans approaching SEGA for stuff. It would have to be a communication between SEGA and each individual license holder. In terms of overseas stuff, some have funny terms and conditions that prevent their stuff from being sold 'officially' overseas. SoS would be seen as an 'official' event of sorts.

    Having said that, we'll likely be having plenty of Jun/Johnny/C40 related bits to sell, as well as Nigel Dobbyn offering original Sonic the Comic prints like he did last year. There are some things we're giving away for free too, like the FCBD Archies, and we might be able to get one or two bits available as well.

    I was really hoping to go this year, but it'll be really hard to get to London from Cumbria. :/

    Ah well.

    ..and my ticket has been sorted! Look forward to seeing those of you that are going!
     
  12. Mine's sorted, but I bet they'll close registration before my friends do theirs :V

    I suppose we'll be organising some kind of pub event, I mean that's the only reason I ever actually go!

    Yeah, and THIS time as I don't have to dash after a fucking train I can be a bit more lenient in terms of booze and time~ Why didn't I think about a hotel room last year?

    Because you're really, really cheap?

    I've gone and booked myself 2 nights this time as opposed to 0 last time. No more eye-wateringly early train journeys in 2010...

    Okay, it's sealed. Got the SoS tickets sorted, and the MegaBus tickets. Will be coming with the missus, and Max Firestorm. =3
    Look forward to seeing any of you there, so if you spot me, come and say Hi. =P

    That would be cost-effective, thank you :british:

    Nah, it's because I'm only an hour from London by train. No need for a hotel unless you're in town really late at night.
     
  17. Can we drag you up Soho OL? :3

    OL, where you staying mate? Anywhere near the venue? I'm sleeping in the Grantly Hotel, which is (apparently) right near the venue itself. Fun times.

    Nova and I are going to be at the Grantly, too. Along with my girlfriend and a couple of other STCers. There should definitely be an after-after party there.

    Pretty much this. Really looking forward to going since it's the first time I've been to a convention of any kind=B I also know a couple of people from DeviantArt that are going so it'd be cool to meet them too.
