Last Thursday's Codemasters event had some major pluses and minuses. I'm counting Overlord II as a plus – and all three times the speakers blew out as minuses.

The big drag, though, was the shortage of Nerf guns. Codemasters had ordered them special for the event and apparently, only 2/3 of their shipment showed up at the venue. I was lucky enough to get one, but I feel bad for those that had to go home with only the T-shirt and the day planner.

(Not pictured: Jumpgate medal – I suspect my cat has wandered off with it.)
