The Video Game RoomOver the last week, I've been extremely dead.  A couple jobs have kicked me in the ass, another job kicked me in the teeth, and another one has got a gun aimed at my left temple.  The joy of being a crazy audio contractor.

But in about a week, I won't be caring about any of that stuff because: I'm going to be rocking out in the Pacific Media Expo Game Room.

It's going to be a fun game room.  It's going to be cool.  It's going to be wacky.

And, it's going to be different.

Yeah, there'll be some of "the standards", like Rock Band and Brawl and all that stuff that con-goers and video gamers expect after seeing game room efforts in other places.

And then there will also be some neat/cool/different stuff that will be both illuminating and fun.  Yeah, you've played fighters like DOA and Street Fighter before... but what about Garouden: Fist or Twist?  Or how about Capcom's manga-based fighter Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi?  What about a Hyper Neo Geo 64 with Buriki One?

Back in the day (read: the 90s), I loved anime conventions because they were a place where I would discover something I had never seen before.  For me, that sense of discovery has been lacking in the game rooms I've seen recently.  Sure, Brawl is fun... but I wanted something new!

Now that I'm part of the powers that be at this game room, I'm going to do my darndest to entertain you while showing you something different.  Or cool.  Or crazy.  Or wacky.

We're going to be constantly rotating games in and out so that the game room on Friday evening will be quite different from the game room on Friday afternoon.

Also, nights will features some funky themes.  You should definitely check out the ecchi/hentai game night.  Steam Hearts, anybody?  How about some Rumble Roses?  And of course we have to break out the PCs so you can try some of the crazy PC doujin-software out there to satisfy the perversions of otaku everywhere...

Yeah... the game room will be awesome.
