With an Activision exec. first introducing the game, two spirited gamers then played out ‘Anarchy In The UK’ on a big screen, but the main event was yet to come. Talking about the game for a couple of minutes, Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, otherwise known as Johnny Rotten, then took to the stage, soon launched into storms of abuse towards members of the crowd, other bands and the UK government. To the game publisher’s obvious annoyance, Lydon then mocked Red Octane’s representative before the press conference drew to a tepid close.
Funeral for a Friend and Maxïmo Park wowed the crowd before the lights dimmed down and as the bar closed, a couple of games had to be dragged away from the Legends of Rock in the main room. We ourselves dug deep to trounce a couple of aspiring musicians, though we won’t name the band they were from to save their grace.
Interesting party. Fantastic game. Full review soon.
