Live-blogging the Games Media Awards!

Thursday, 16th October 2008 20:20 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Live from the Jongleurs Comedy Club in London’s Camden Lock. The British games media industry is currently drunk. See what happens when some of them get awarded for writing about videogames. After the break. We’re using CoverItLive, so there’s no need to refresh.

    Ah, that’s the way live blogging should be done. At least here you hear when something new pops up even if it’s in a different tab.

    I can’t imagine having to perform standup to drunk games journalists, it must be like a special kind of hell

    Someone forgot to charge his laptop. :)

    What’s annoying is that for live updates of comments we still have to refresh, thus defeating the object. I’m not complaining, it’s still like magic future technology to me.

    I’m mostly amazed that someone in London is still in possession of their laptop at the end of a day!

    “Tom Bramwell just texted me to say if I win I have to take my laptop up with me on stage. I’m not going to do that.”

    You have Bolton favourite, Peter Kay, to thank for the current spree of “You know Wagon wheels…” comedians that generally pervade Chicken-in-a-basket style comedy clubs.

  46. No_PUDding

    Why feel bad?

    Ofcourse it was a fix, it would have been sexism if the woman didn’t win. They had no choice.

    Not one note of consolation for having to sit next to Melville all night. Tell him I miss him and I’ll see him at Christmas.
