Maybe there is a thread about this somewhere, maybe there isn't. Either way, I thought I'd start a fresh one as the Video Game Summit draws near. It's July 17th. 


I'm probably more excited about the VGS then anyone else. I've been into video games for a while now and collecting games casually (although my madness has accelerated quite a bit recently) for about a year. This is the FIRST forum I ever joined to talk about video games and the VGS will be my first event to get together with people like me. I'm really stoked about this, I even have it on my work calendar. 


ANYWAY, this is a post to see who's going. And maybe where to find one another. I figured we could start at the TG16 booth since one of our own is hosting it =)

Hi Evil. I'll be there too. This will also be my first year at the VGS. I'm excited about it as well. Good thing I get paid on the 15th so I'll have a few bucks to grab some more games. I might avoid the Turbo booth, I haven't been practicing my Military Madness tactics and Chany's out for blood. Maybe I'll go hang out with the Odyssey guys or something....

It's a good idea to get a checklist going early on. Nice, Evil. I have been prepping for this event ever since January or February.

 

Ok guys let us know if you are coming or not. We know that Alex and Maxrage probably won't come due to personal reasons. Either way, let your voice be heard. I will PM those who don't respond on this thread. Since el capitan won't be assisting, I will be manning the ship. Under my administration, NO GAMER SHALL BE LEFT BEHIND.

Hey Crono, I don't think I need any assistence setting up the equipment. But thanks for asking. If you could bring along those awesome arcade joysticks that you made, that would be swell. I currently have 5 controllers, thanks to the ones Alex let me borrow. But those 2 you made would be a huge plus! :)

Yes, I will be there. I had some internet issues here, but they should be mostly solved for now. I will be attending the summit, and yes Jeff, I still want the Neo Geo, lol!!

Just to clarify, the address of the convention center is 665 W. North Ave in Lombard. It is smack dab in the corner of North Ave and Route 53 (Rohling Rd.) It is behind the Fairfield Inn and they share the same parking lot. Use that hotel as a guide.

Hey Crono, there is a deli on the same floor as the VGS. They sell club sandwitches which are ok, might have some other stuff, I am not sure. There will be plenty of pop and chips for sale by the entrance.

I'm going (have to it's my show) :)

as food and drink, I don't think we will have sandwichs there cost is too high I will have pop and chips for sale at my tables. however there is a bk and micky d's right by the hotel. even though they don't allowed outside food in the place, you might be able to sneak it in.

I know I didn't have any sandwiches last year.

also goat store won't be at the show this year (dan has a family gathering and gary is out of town) if you order anything from goatstore before the 13th and use the code mentioned in the

press release you can have free pick up at the show.
