Luckily, due to contacts made at last year's Fanfest, I have been fortunate enough to link up with a couple of veteran journalists in the form of Petter Martensson (FZ.SE) and John Bedford (Eurogamer) who have been kind enough to take me under their wings and endure my rookie mistakes (note to self: laptops are no use if left in hotel rooms).
Between presentations (about which I don't think I'm allowed to write yet), the journo blob takes up residence in this press cave. It is filled with a strange school classroom vibe, with the quiet, studious atmosphere punctuated by furious typing and muttered conversations. Every once in a while a few of them disappear off to play a game I'm not allowed to talk about yet. It's my go shortly.
