Getting ready for the Midwest Gaming Classic

March 20, 2010 by · 4 Comments 

Though work and school have been keeping me pretty busy, I’m going to make time for the Midwest Gaming Classic next weekend.  If you haven’t been to it before, and you’re anywhere near Milwaukee, WI, I highly suggest attending.  It’s a great place to buy and play all sorts of retro video games.  Though the vendors are the main attraction for me, I always look forward to the speakers, museum, free-play arcade and pinball games, and tournaments.

If you see this post and plan to be there, leave a comment and let me know!  I’d love to meet up with a few people to play a few games in the Versus Room (like 10-player Saturn Bomberman).  Or, just keep an eye out for me.  I’ll have a badge with my Digital Press username (Mobius).

    Sweet, we should meet up to play a few matches in the Underdog Chamber and Versus Room!

    No idea what that is, but I’ll give it a shot. So do they have name tags there? (this is my first MGC)

    The Underdog Chamber is part of the museum where they have lots of “underdog” consoles like the Jaguar, NUON, and other such “failures.” They’re all playable. The Versus Room is going to have lots of different systems linked up and multi-tapped for things like 4-player NES games, 10-player Bomberman, and Xbox LAN games.

    A few of us over at the Digital Press forums are getting name badges, but the convention people themselves aren’t giving them out. I suppose you could always make one for yourself? Otherwise, keep an eye out for mine.
