I was very happy to meet Paul and his family. He had a demo running for Armed For Battle, as well as the other games that were being sold at his booth, Nomolos and Nighttime Bastards.
Throughout the weekend, I hung out with the Tetris crowd - house parties, local restaurants, a pool hall, playing some tetris, cards against humanity, and just chillin. It was like a continuous party from Friday through Sunday, and it was a fabulous group of people to hang out with. I knew a few of the faces from the Midwest Gaming Classic convention, and the brand new faces felt like old friends.
In some promotional efforts for AfB, and also for promoting NES homebrew in general, I gave out a few copies of Armed For Battle, and hope to see the results in some future youtube videos. I'll keep you posted. Speaking of homebrew, another very cool thing to me was meeting bunnyboy at the NintendoAge booth. I wasn't sure if I'd ever get the chance to meet him in person, but lucky for me, he was there. Two things you should know about him, if you didn't already - 1) he made the tutorials that were essential to me when learning how to program for the NES and 2) he is currently making an HDMI NES system, which looked fantastic at PRGE.
To round out Sunday, I watched a number of matches in the Tetris tournament, got in some last minute expo shopping, then went for dinner and attended one last party.
I had a late night flight, which departed at 11:30pm. I few hours later, I snapped this quick shot while descending into Chicago for my layover.
