    Figured I'd setup an open thread for general chatter. What are you hoping to find at MGC this year?

    I'm going to focus on Turbografx 16/PC Engine (as always), Atari Jaguar, Neo Geo. But I also may try to find a 3DO to add to the collection this year, and I'd still love to find a working Fairchild Channel-F, since that's actually the first console I ever had.

    You?

    I'd love to find some of the older Atelier games. I only really got into the series starting on PS3 but they go back a ways and I kinda want to collect them now. Some are import only though, so not sure how lucky I'll be with that.

    From what I understand they have a lot of older arcade games at this event, right? If so (and I was able to go) I'd love to track down the old arcade game, Cliff Hanger. I believe that's the name. I've always wanted to play that one again.

    Yeah, there are TON of arcade and pinball games available to play, all for free

    Good to know. I might have to remind you guys to keep an eye for that arcade game the closer it gets to the date because if they have it then I might have to make the point of coming next year. :)

    This year I'll be coming a day early on Thursday. Not really looking for anything in particular, but some retro video game decor for the office / new house would be nice.

    Of course, the obligatory Carlson purchase.

    This is my first time going so I'm going to be excited with every thing that's going to be there. I just got a sega Saturn going to look for games for that. Some ps2 games. I'm nervous to meet the psnation Community since I'm a shy person and I'm bad with starting Conversation up.

    You'll likely see me with a group generally being loud and ridiculous!

    For Saturn, you'll want an Action Replay for sure to play imports. Then visit the Mad-Gear booth and see what Carlson has. Apparently he just picked up a large lot of Saturn games!

    I wouldn't worry about it. For the most part, they all "seem" pretty harmless. ;) Heck, you could always get in a few party chats ahead of MGC with some fellow PSNationers that way the ice is already broken.

    Oh yeah man don't worry we're all awkward nerds. I'll be the dork stick standing next to the tall beautiful woman who I drag with every year.

    I'll be looking to pick up any games from my childhood for the NES SNES Genesis.
    I got a Retron 5 a couple months ago, what games should I get for the other "systems"? I like Shmups, sports, action, fighting games. Not into RPGs though...

    I'm torn between saving my money for the VR or getting some classic games with a Retron 5. We will actually be arriving in town on Wednesday and two friends will be flying in on Friday. Can't wait!

    I was just doing some double checking with my tickets to the show and the baseball game and couldn't find anything to print off for the baseball game. I can't remember, are our names just on a list or do I need to contact somebody to get "tickets"?

    Names are all on a list that I will have. We'll give the tickets out before we get on the bus
