The UK game retailer GAME has listed a bonus offer if you reserve Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics Games through GAME, Gamestation, or Gameplay (online only). Reserving will get customers a nice pack of stationary including pencils, markers, a ruler, notepad, etc. so that you will be the coolest kid at university! M&S 2012 releases February 10th in the UK, and February 14th in the USA. Who will be ready for class with this game?

Before I start this article I would like to thank Kenny Morgan, Marta Skorupinska and James Bruck for their help and company at this convention.
It’s no surprise that every videogame convention has it’s own motto. From the biggest event to the smallest gathering they all have their own mission statement which they hope to abide by. Now a phrase which I kept seeing around the very first London Gaming Con, was ‘bringing gaming fans together’.
I thought about this catchphrase as I walked around the convention, looking at the fans attending and the various gaming stalls. For a first attempt at a videogame convention, had the gang behind London Gaming Con succeeded in this mission?
Well you’ll have to find out after the jump, as I give you the information about what happened when a Sega Addict visited the very first London Gaming Con. More >
For those not of the British persuasion you may be wondering what is this ‘London Gaming Con’. Well to the best of my knowledge it is a gaming convention on the 3rd and 4th of December at the Holloway Rocket Complex. But what has this got to do with Sega? Well if you’d shut up and let me talk then you’d realise that they are putting on a ‘Super Sonic Sunday’! No word on what this entails as it’s still being sorted out, but apparently we can expect party of sorts.
You can register for the con here! And why wouldn’t you? I’ll be there covering the event for Sega Addicts! So be sure to punch me in the face or whatever it is you always wanted to do. See you at the party!
Do you like puns involving rings and Sonic? Do you like obnoxious voice overs? Well then the new TV spots for Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games has got you covered! There’s also another Mario centric version of the ad which you can see here.
I swear the person who wrote these ad’s knows his humour. Only a genius could make that chilli dog gag.
