    I would REALLY like to go to this. I've heard so many good things from Carlson (16-bit) about this. For me, it's really going to depend on the weather and if I can get time off that weekend.

    What it comes down to, though, is that we had outgrown the Olympia after years of maximizing our space there. Now that we have had one year in the Sheraton, we're really just getting started at maximizing our space there and giving the whole show a more natural flow like it had at the Olympia. I think it will turn out well this year... A lot of us are coming in a day earlier to really focus on this.

    From the looks of it, hopefully we should have a very good show in place this year for our 10th anniversary.

    Later.

    Man, I've never been to one of these. I've just seen youtube vids of MGC events. Looks like a lot of fun. Maybe one day if I'm in the area, I'll go.

    I went last year and am planning on returning this year.
    Overall it was a very good show but I was a little disappointed at the lack of Neo Geo stuff.
    I don't remember seeing any AES stuff and only a handful of MVS stuff.
    Now I'm not trying to discourage people from attending I just want the dealers to see this and bring the goods I got cash.

    I believe they intend to do one eventually, but this is the basic run-down: If you want the most panels/events and don't mind the crowds, Saturday is generally your best bet. If you want smaller crowds and wanna play stuff all day, Sunday is your best option.

    As you kinda mention, as vendors find more of a market for Neo Geo at the show, their stock will shift to meet that need. I personally noticed a lot of Neo Geo stuff at the show last year as opposed to '09. Mad Gear Games had some AES import stuff as did another bigger vendor, and I know one place had a lot of Neo Geo CD stuff. There were also a few MVS cabinets for sale along with some games if memory serves.

    Later.

    Getting hyped to roll with my crew again. I'm afraid the NGPC bug will bite me again this year (grabbed an extra Crystal NGPC from Mad Gear two shows ago), but whatever happens, I know it'll be a good time as it always is. As far as Sheraton vs Olympia, I thought that the Olympia was a more comfortable venue, whereas the Sheraton felt kind of...disjointed, what with vendors on the first floor and the museum on what was practically the opposite end of the building. Still, MGC grows every year and we kind of outgrew the Olympia, so it had to happen.

    Also, if you only attend for one day, make it Saturday. Height of the shows and the day that vendors bring out the majority of their wares.

    Me and my friends from kitsune kon and the IGDA - GB Student Chapter are going to be going as well. Do you think anyone would want to see my cobbled together CMVS? I plan on buying stuff, and I'm a part of the IGDA so I'll be attending their meeting, but it'd be nice to meet up with some of you also if I could.

    I was indeed. It was the first time I have ever done something like that, so it turned out less than perfect, but it works and it survived that crazy weekend . I still have some improvements I would like to make at some point - maybe giving it a coat of paint, and close up some of those gaps where dust could get in. On a side note, I hope you enjoyed the con .

    I tried to find a PM feature on this site and couldn't. sorry if this is too off topic.

    Yeah, I can't wait! Definitely looking forward to going for the first time. Of course, I have to "pay" for it by working 5 days straight at work.

    If anyone wants to play some Neo stuff with me, I will be bringing my modded Saturn Neo Pad. I'll post my cell phone number here shortly before the event, if anyone's interested in contacting me. Otherwise, I will be with Carlson some of the time helping him move stuff from his car, etc. I'm the one with sideburns, BTW.

    Carlson, you realize that you could ask Allen to borrow his hair, right?
