    I was looking forward to attending again this year to hang out with chums, but getting socked with $5,000 in dental bills has crushed any plans I may have had for the immediate future.

    :(

    My girlfriend and I will be getting there Thursday so we’ll be around for doing something if/when people are meeting up. Can’t wait to see everyone again.

    I'll be getting in with Jeff on Thursday. Perhaps we can get together and go to the Safehouse?

    We could also go see a movie. Ready Player One is out.

    The Safehouse is walkable from there, as long as this crazy weather stops its reign of terror.

    If I could make it, I'd be dragging all of your sorry asses to see Rampage! :mad:



    I don't expect much, but I enjoy Dwayne Johnson and I loved playing Rampage in arcade when I was young and less of a curmudgeon. I hope there's a scene of buxom lady whose showers is interrupted as an Easter egg in the movie. :p

    We're at the Hilton too. Be getting in around 5-6. Let's plan on meeting in the lobby of the Hilton at 7pm, then go grab dinner and drinks.

    We can make plans for that night and Friday then. Keepin' it chill.

    I was originally shooting to get in around Friday afternoon, but adjusted to stay ahead of the mammoth rain/snowstorm hitting midday Friday and all of saturday in the areas I'll be traveling through. Barring any travel issues I should be getting in Friday morning. I am staying at the Regency Hyatt. Been a few years so looking forward to catching up with everyone, if someone wouldn't mind shooting me a line on what winds up planned Friday night I would mighty appreciate it!

    We ending up stopping at a friend’s house on the way up so we won’t be around tonight. I’m not sure if we’ll make the movie tomorrow. It will depend on what time everyone is going. We’ll be around in the afternoon and evening for sure if people are hanging out or doing something then.

    MGC weekend was a blast! Loved the new venue and glad I was able to take in a little bit of everything from roaming the mammoth vendor hall and museum, checking out a lot of awesome homebrew and arcade machines in the community zone rooms, catching a couple panels and hanging out and catching up with everyone!

    Very fun weekend! And my kids can’t wait to go back next year. Glad I got to see a bunch of you guys.
    Hopefully next time I can stay until Monday.

    We had a blast, I love the new venue too. Had fun exploring the skywalks, hopefully next year there will be more stores open. I couldn't tell if there was a bunch of renovations going on or if there were just a lot of store closings. Without Carl there I didn't end up buying much. About all that was really for me was an import Super Robot Wars collection for PS1, although I do feel like all the other vendors had better selections this year.

    It was great seeing everyone again, I just hope we have more time next year. We had to leave early because the snow was making me a bit nervous, so it felt like I wasn't able to spend as much time in the non-dealer areas as I wanted this time.
