This year Rezzed Gaming Convention is occurring in Birmingham, on June 22nd and 23rd. Last year it was in Brighton and despite being assaulted by a monsoon it was great fun.
I went to Rezzed for the first time last year and I have to admit, I'm a big fan.
The appeal of Rezzed is primarily the fact that you get some big name games and a great selection of indie titles, but the event is not over-packed with attendees, so it's much easier to get your hands on a bunch of games in even one day without having to queue for an insanely long amount of time. Eurogamer is the UK's biggest gaming event and because of that fact alone the venue is full of gamers and queues for AAA titles can be quite long.
Rezzed is also a much friendlier environment in terms of getting time with devs and studio teams. For me personally, I'm extremely excited that I'll be getting some interview and hands on time with a handful of devs at the event.
Some of the content will be tied-in with Scary Granules Podcast, so stay tuned for that episode next week, where myself and Panza will be giving a run down of our experience over the weekend.
