We here at JoypadAndMe started with one thing in mind, to build a friendly, fun and interesting gaming community that will grow and evolve. In the time that we have been going we have come across many new friends and contacts. It is our intent to help pass on the information of some of these contacts that may interest the gaming community out there and in that way help to further build on our dream.

Gaming Events Gallery
Check out the Gaming gallery for photos from the events we have been to as well as the ones we have hosted. We have galleries from ExtraLife events, Eurogamer trips as well as a multitude of other events and gaming related goodness.
Want to take your love of a gaming character one step further? Interested in those that do? Why not check out our Cosplay Gallery. You will find gallery pages for different cosplayers both professional and amateur. Have a look and maybe get inspired to try it for yourself.
Bands & Music
Good music can be hard to find. With so many groups and bands out there it can sometimes be as hard to find a good song as it is to find a good game. We have got together with some great bands to bring you their latest songs and information on where to hear them. Click on the link below to see our favourites.
Replay Events: Play Blackpool
Replay Events hold some of the best retro gaming and arcade events around the country. JoypadAndMe has been lucky enough to attend a few of these as well as spend a bit of time behind the scenes with the good people who work tirelessly to put the events together.
