    Nice. I'd bring some hygiene wipes for the controllers though, just in case.
    johnsmith1997's avatar
    I remember as a kid playing arcade games in the 80s. Hygiene wipes didn't exist then and people just played them. Imagine a room filled with arcade machines, crowded with people, some smoking, no social distancing and I'm still alive I think. (edited)

    This is what replaced Sky Backstage at the O2 - usually Sky Backstage would have a massive queue, but nobody bothered going in here when I was there last week. Not surprised Virgin Media have turfed Sky out and removed the lounge seeing as all VMO2 customers have access to O2 Blueroom instead.

    Free snacks/drinks and a private room for an hour seems great before an event, even if you don't use the console (can watch a streaming service for an hour on the Xbox)! (edited)

    Can't think of anything I'd rather do than relax and play games with friends on greasy controllers with a 1 hour cut-off (whether you've finished the match/level or not) and you can't save so all your progress is lost.

    Not sure you're supposed to be playing your 300 hour Skyrim save on it, just having a bit of fun before a gig.
