In about half an hour’s time, I’ll be playing trivia. Not just any old trivia, gaming trivia. And by that I don’t mean Buzz or Scene It?, I mean proper pub trivia where all the questions are about video games.
This evening, the folks at Electronic Arts have invited a host of games journalists and other industry people along to an inner city pub for something they’re calling TrivEA. Groan. And one can only hope they’ve recruited a TV quiz show has-been to MC the event.
We’ll be competing in teams of four or five, which is a bit of a problem when you’re a one-man media outlet such as Kotaku. So, after reaching an unprecedented bilateral agreement, I’ll be teaming up with three of the guys from IGN. Or, rather, they’ll be teaming up with me. They know who’s getting the better deal.
I’ve been scouring wikis all afternoon in preparation. (That’s a lie.) Wish me luck!
Oh, and don’t forget to leave your questions for me to ask Darksiders creator Joe Madureira tomorrow.
