He just knows that he has a space, and would like to hang out with some Neo dudes.

    Okay, back to retirement.

    It's incredibly shitty that you want free liquor and drugs from me for the privilege of your company. I'm not trying to drive sales to my booth. again- get fucked. you've just let me know all i need to know about you. nice "do-over".


    anyone else that isn't connor- y'all are more than welcome to use our area as a central meetup hub. no strings attached. if you were there last year of have met me at another con, you know what i'm all about. it will be great seeing (the vast majority of) y'all.
    I concede that I jumped the gun on this. I also apologize to cdamm and anyone else I've offended with this thread. I was overzealous in my attempt to protect the community, while at the same time being uninformed about the whole thing.

    Last year was the best! Meet at the booths, then go somewhere together was the plan previously. Time for more post expo night adventures!

    I was quite surprised this thread blew up and wondered "WTF is going on to blow up the PRGE thread, it's never this busy"

    Was certainly not expecting wat it turned into...

    I'd say you've offended pretty much anyone here that goes to the show.

    'nother one o them big understatements right there.


    You need to understand this connor. Arcadeworks & Windy aren't trying to hard sell you anything. If you wanna pick up anything they've got with em, fine. But most of the time I've been TALKED OUT of spending my $ with either of em. Seriously, if you had any idea how hard I've tried to hand cdamm $ for stuff before and he was repeatedly trying to talk me out of it you'd WTF.

    You think trying to find some random person at the show is easier than stopping by a forum member's booth? lolyeahright

    cdamm (windy) & shadowkn55 (arcadeworks) are a couple of the best guys on this board. Stoppin by/hangin out at their booths is how it's done at shows for the N-G.com crowd when the show is open. Then we usually meet up at heir booths right at the end of the day to figure out where we're going to go afterwards. To think that they're trying to sell you and ruin the community is so lolz i have no words...

    Damn straight!

    Last year for me the actual "show" sucked (my personal opinion). But the socializing both at the show and during the after show adventures was the best yet. Looking forward to that and hoping we have even more entertaining times this year. And also hope to not be visiting the urgent care at the hospital like I did during MGC... Thanks again cdamm for teh ride to the hospital! Still disappoint ya never posted up the pics of the bloody aftermath.

    In all seriousness though, don't you think it's a bit uncouth to attempt to insert your business into a by-community, for-community meetup? If you had something to offer us as a host then sure, but come on man. If you want to officially sponsor the neo-geo.com PRGE meetup then that's another story, but let's do it right so that we maximize the fun for the forum members! eg. you could offer us all a cool sticker or t-shirt or whatever. Any gesture of goodwill makes for a better community and increases the fun.
    Fuck you noob

    Well, I didn't exactly know wat else to say at the moment. Little bit o shock at filleting my finger open like I did. What's funny is that someone did go grab a band aid and then quickly found out that wasn't gonna cut it when they say how badly I was bleedin all over the place. Too bad my shitty phone pics don't quite convey the carnage...

    Uhhh, wat's the "right" finger loli? Also note that's how you deal with injuries during a con loli. Git yer ass to a hospital or such, get fixed up real quick, and go back and enjoy the festivities. None of this "I cut my hand and can't go" shit.

    "Unlimited" you say? It's not HnRs, but it'll do.

    bubs, that shit looked painful.

    Yessir. Shit, hadn't even washed the blood off yet. Did that when we got there.

    A bit painful. But I'd just put a new blade in my knife so it was verr sharp. Super sharp doesn't hurt as bad, but cuts the fuck outta ya. Lots o blood was poured that's for sure.

    Tickets haven't sold out any year I've been there. And since I've always had pre-bought weekend passes the line to pick those up has been non-existant. Like has taken 20-30 seconds to grab my badge every year. There is usually a line for buying tickets at the show though.

    Definitely pre-buy your tickets if you can. The line/location to do so during the show is always ridiculous.
    I'll be there, still undecided if I'm volunteering or not again. This would be year 7 as a show volunteer, but there's a part of me that just wants to relax and enjoy the expo.

    Wasn't able to make it last year, but definitely going this year! Will be there the whole weekend with a friend of mine, but I'll try and stop by the Windy booth and say what's up.

    i will be sure to bog you down with endless sales pitches ensuring you do not have a good time.
