The Midwest Gaming Classic

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Wed Apr 17, 2019 9:10 pm

Roody_Yogurt and I attended the Midwest Gaming Classic this year. Great show and I want to write more about it - here is an album of some photos I took. I would like to begin the discussion by talking about the BALLS, the elephantized BALLS of the man asking for that kind of money for a Virtual Boy as soon as you walk into the show. We had a 7' pyramid of unsold Virtual Boys at Electronics Boutique when I was there. They got down to $19.99 in the real world of 1996.

Ah, crap, I can't embed an album I guess.

Things to touch on:

- The Safehouse
- The indie game room
- The fact that a bunch of us should go next year. Milwaukee is a TON of fun and I didn't get to see everything. This is where the (first-ever?) next JC get-together should be. You all have a year to plan for it.
- The Sega Saturn I bought
- Potpurri
the dark and gritty...Ice Cream Jonsey!

Cool! Yeah I talked to Roody about it some yesterday. I wouldn't rule out going one year.

That's insane what that guy is asking for a Virtual Boy. Guy obviously doesn't know wtf he's doing because if he did he'd be selling the Core Grafx cheaper than the Turbo Grafx. And 400$ for an Atari Jaguar? Hahahaha

Have to played anything on the Saturn yet?
