Just a few more bits from this month's Replay Expo. Images in this post are screenshots from video shot on the Saturday (5 November) to give a bit of a taste of the afternoon without you having to use up bandwidth on videos and stuff like that.
Hope you enjoyed them! The more eagle-eyed among you will have also noticed this screengrab of a Vectrex over at Bite Sized Muppetry, and that I haven't posted any videos of that console... so far.
Harry Yack takes a trip to the home of donkeys, expensive lighting and billions of bed and breakfasts. No time for sausage 'n' chips or walks along the promenade, however, as the 2011 Replay retro video game type thingy was also taking place just down the road at Norbreck Castle.
Footage here was taken on the first day of the event, Saturday 5 November. Highlights included a cosplay parade (not featured), prize raffle (not featured) and a wet T-shirt contest (not really). There was also a full itinerary of talks and competitions taking place during the day, so this video merely skims the surface of the delights on offer. And no, I'm not talking about the hamburgers.

...and a bunch more mildly 'entertaining' vignettes.
Video of Saturday's antics at Replay will be online as soon as I can edit the footage together. In the meantime, console yourself (groan) with this tasty selection of photographs from the main hall. Click for full size.
Retro Corner. Absolutely bustling, you'd have struggled to find yourself a machine here.

Bomberman madness. Even better on a large screen TV!
Halo tournament in progress. Didn't enter in time, which is probably good thing as I would have been slaughtered.
