Checkpoint Gaming Lounge Coming To CARDIFF! But They Need Your Help!

Us nerds are actually very social creatures, as long as we’re in the right environment. Checkpoint Gaming Lounge is aiming to create that environment. You can sit back, chat about games – getting excited about next weeks releases over a beer, and the best part – everyone else is going to nerd out with you. Or you could get some lunch with your mates while hammering out Mileena’s fatality against your nemesis who’s beat your face in more times than you can count, BUT NOT THIS TIME!

Sometimes the universe is good to you. You’ll be expecting very little and receive a lot. For example, during our recent comic con adventure, we were admiring and photographing a pretty amazing homemade Commander Shepherd. He was posing with his rifle aimed squarely at a Ramona Flowers when suddenly Gordon Freeman charged up behind him and smacked him over the head with a crowbar. That this was just one of the bizarre and wonderful moments shows how amazing these conventions can be. Read the rest of this entry
