I've lived in Nottingham all my life and I've been gaming for 22 years yet somehow I've managed to never hear of this.

By the way, don't come to Nottingham expecting to see Robin Hood. He's a myth. Haha. j/k Seriously though, there's these sighns all over the borders that read "Welcome to Robin Hood county". It's an embarrassment.

I would be proud to have such a heroic character based in my area. But, you're probably really sick of him by now.

@dimebags - Head into the city centre today. You'll see a big white tent with a GameCity logo on it. That's a focal point for the GameCity festival.

Robin Hood was nothing but a thief and a murderer.

Robin Hood reminds me of one thing.....Weetabix!

It's disapointing. I was there yesterday and there's just a tent with a LEGO Universe demo running and another van with a copy of MySims Sky Heroes. There was a Crysis 2 demo, but the que was around 20 minutes long and I didn't bother.

What about all the lectures and events? All the indie games and laser trap games? Seriously, go back today and get a schedule of events - it;s the last day today.
