The Crystal Ball: GenCon 2013

img004

Ladies and gentlemen, it is that time of the year again, as GenCon is literally next week! I’m as excited as one can get without experiencing incontinency. It’s the 46th year of the biggest gaming convention in North America. Like last year, GenCon broke pre-registration records, and we’ll probably see record-breaking attendance numbers this year as well. This year in particular is going to be extra-special, but I can’t reveal why just yet. A tease, I know, but if I told now, it’d spoil the surprise for someone special!

For such an important yearly pilgrimage to the nerd holy land, one must be armed with the knowledge of just what to spend your accumulated wealth on. Let’s look into the crystal ball and divine what goodies will be available at GenCon! Read the rest of this entry

GenCon Sell-outs

Well, folks, GenCon has come and gone. Unfortunately, this trend also extended to most of it’s big releases this year. Many many people couldn’t get ahold of more than a few titles this year, and it wasn’t just sad…it was infuriating.
First of all, though, here’s my short list of the top titles that sold out FAR too quickly at GenCon: Read the rest of this entry

The GenCon 2012 Lineup

Well, folks, it’s that time again. GenCon 2012 is just a month away, and it’s high time a shopping list is made for your trip to the best four days in gaming! There’s some good stuff available this year, and I feel it to be my duty to help by listing off some highlights of games making their debut at Gencon this year. So, without further adieu, here’s the list I’ve dug up of what to look for on the vendor hall floor! Read the rest of this entry

Back from GenCon

Doc Belmont with Shane Hensley!

Well, folks, I have returned from GenCon, and I must say that this year was a blast! I got to try out lots of new stuff, and even picked up a few new games (before their release!). I had so much fun that I’m already planning next year’s trip. The entire GenCon experience will be related by VLog here, so stay tuned!

The above picture, if any of you were wondering, is of me (of course) with Shane Lacy Hensley. If any of you are fans of Savage Worlds, Rippers, or Deadlands, this name should be familiar to you. It was a pleasure to speak with him, as well as nab a copy of Savage Worlds Deluxe and get an autograph. Keep up the good work, Mr. Hensley!

GENCON, 2011!!!

Salutations!

I am pleased to announce that I will be attending GENCON Indy next week! I’m very excited to see all of the great new stuff that is going to make its debut this year, and I hope to swipe up some swag along the way. To any friends and acquaintances, I hope to see you there!
