The sixth annual Play Expo Manchester event is next weekend (14-15th of October), we have some details of the line up ahead of the event.
We are going to be covering Play Expo over the next couple of weeks as Last Life Club will be in attendance, the two-time award nominated show will be written up within an inch of it’s life (and maybe some video content, we will see). Promising something for everyone with exhibits, markets, presentations, arcades and video game mayhem, it looks to be yet another unmissable event from the Play Expo gang.
So what is happening next weekend then? Let’s get in to this:
- Golden Eye 64 20th Anniversary Panel – Features 5 of the original 9 core team members from the development of the Rare classic to talk about the creation of the game.
