Metal Gear NES Play Expo

UK Queuing Championships [Play Expo], Manchester 2012 [Vlog]

Finally, a benefit of living in Greater Manchester! Five quid for an any bus day pass to anywhere in the metropolitan county ain’t too bad, especially when the UK’s largest retro gaming expo just so happens to be taking place up Salford way.

Although the huge collection of retro television sets is something of a nostalgia trip, scanlines don’t necessarily make for decent camshot footage. Never mind, it’s the consoles you’re here for, eh?

Drinking game:

  • Take a shot every time I reference something from last year’s video.
  • Down a full pint every time you recognise a YouTuber (there’s at least one).
  • Drink a whole bottle of Toilet Duck for every reference to British pop culture.


I know nothing about art; as a rule, 'modern' graphic design does not appeal to me. I like to write in the first person because I do not want to be someone else.

Influences: public toilet cubicle drawings/slogans; WordArt posters in Market Street shop windows; Mega-Zine; bootleg vinyl artwork; Janne Suni; Pink Floyd; whoever is responsible for the Max Headroom hijacking incident; Collie, the Inept Reviewer.
