London MCM Expo this weekend

Long time running London MCM Expo hits this weekend on Saturday 30 and Sunday the 31 (as well as Friday 29th for those with pre-ordered weekend tickets) bringing us sci-fi, cosplay, anime, film and games all under one roof rammed full of sweaty nerds in the London Excel Center at the Docklands. Every year the focus on gaming gets bigger and bigger and less on cosplay drama (though the Cosplay Euro Championships are taking place if it is your thing). This year also sees the MCM Expo as one of the final events to the London Festival of Gaming.

While there are plenty of games at MCM Expo, Ubisoft are dominating with Assassins Creed: Brotherhood which has the biggest presence with Raphael Dominguez (Ubisoft Annecy) and Mathieu Gagnon (Ubisoft Montreal) hosting exclusive Q&A sessions. A rather handsome actor will also be running around as Ezio performing staged fights, with costume created by top UK costume designer Laura Sindall who will be on hand to give budding designers some pro-tips. On top of this, Ubisoft have arranged for Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Ezio, to sign autographs. I am pretty much weak at the knees.

If you see me running around at the Expo make sure to say hi and for more information visit London MCM Expo.
