I just can’t hardly wait for Gencon 2012 to get here and I am counting the days down till it is here. In 9 days 30,000+ people will arrive in my home town of Indianapolis prepared to game till their eyes burn. This year I hope to pick up a couple card games like Fantasy Flight’s Cthulhu and I might possibly pick up some Magic the Gathering decks and partake in some open play. I know for sure that I am going to grab the new expansions for Twilight Creation’s Zombies!!! game and absolutely check out anything else new they have available. There is just SO many games that I would like to buy and play but time is short and well games ADD up quick. I have already put one of our older cars up for sale hoping to pocket some extra spending cash. I have even gone as far as looking into purchasing a kilt to wear one day but to my surprise kilts are VERY expensive and not in the budget at this time. I did send an email offering free promotion at Gencon in exchange for rental or keeps from Utilkilts.
Don’t think that I am only after the big companies games at this show… I am going to be on the look out for all the new independent games making their first appearance at GenCon. These people are the life force that drive the industry because they are all gaming fans before becoming game creators. I hope to pick up a couple of sleepers and even talk to/ interview some of these underground heroes.
For those of you that are long time followers of the Traumatic Cinematic show I want to mention that I know we have been sporadic with the shows recently and I am working on a long-term fix to mend this issue. It has been tough with everything going on and my main partner Dave (Manifesto) has all sorts of great things going on in his real life right now preventing him from spending the time tinkering with this digital life. I am happy for him and hope he can find time again to be on the show but if not we will be parting as friends still and I will always have an open mic for him to sit in on any recording we do.
