Whoa, guys.

Sorry for the lack of updates the past two days.

The night I was supposed to do it, I ended up feeling quite sick - and ended up in bed early, so never got round to doing the update.

Then yesterday, I thought: "Right, I'll get that update done as soon as I get home, and then I can get working on something for my next update."

Well, that seemed like it would have happened. Only, something else did...

Whilst in town, I checked facebook on my phone and noticed that Zavvi had made a status update requesting that everybody who entered their Far Cry 3 competition should check their emails. So, there I go, logging onto my emails and low and behold, no emails.

Grr.

On my way home, I realised that I can't check my junk box on my phone. I started to think "Holy sh*t. It's gonna be me that has won, but its in my junk box" - but the closer I got to home, the more I doubted it. But at the same time, I had that niggling feeling in the back of my mind saying "It's you, you've won!".

So, the second I got in the front door, I grabbed my laptop and logged onto my emails and clicked straight for the Junk folder.

And there it was.

An email titled "Zavvi Gamescom Winner".

Heart racing, I clicked the email - and realised it was actually the second I'd received. The first one had been received 4 days previous, but again, in my junk folder - so hadn't noticed. It was 3pm, and the email said I had to reply by 5pm or else another winner would be chosen.

I've never replied to an email so fast in my life.

So yeah, my mind ended up all over the place last night. 

I won tickets for me and three friends to go to Gamescom in Germany (for all four days), flights there, flights back and accommodation in a 4 star hotel for the four nights.

Needless to say, I'm over the moon. 

I've never been to Germany before, so really looking forward to it.

Sadly though, I've had to cancel some August preorders so that I'll have some spending money to take with me (since it's only a month away!).

But I'm sure it will be worth it!

Check back later for my long awaited update ;)

So I just want to say a massive thanks to the team over at Koch Media for sending me an amazing goodie bag of Agents of Mayhem stuff. ...
