"So, yesterday I went to Play.com Live at Wembley Stadium with a whole group of Destructoid community members, who were innocently expecting to have fun. As someone who's been around the block a few times, I kind of knew better. Not even I, however, was prepared for the absolute flop that this so-called 'entertainment extravaganza' turned out to be.
Did it help that the event was actually promoted with lies? Did it help that they had emo bands playing that made me want to kill myself and the screaming girls who bounced in front of the stage? Did it help that the playable stuff was mostly games that had been released last year? No, none of that helped. Not at all."
