The Year Was 1990..
In an industry controlled by publishers, the tactics of video game marketers has convinced a generation of players that if you're not hating, you're not gaming. It's a notion that has stuck for more than a decade now and it only seems to have gotten worse with gamers treating their favorite medium like a disposable play thing than a legitimate form of entertainment and media.

Join us for an open floor discussion regarding the rampant cynicism that exists in gaming culture, how it affects our appreciation of video games and how we, as an industry, seem to perpetuate the cycle of hate. You'll learn exactly how we got to this point and discover why todays gamers seem to hate their hobby so much.

Whether you're a casual player, hardcore or somewhere in-between, if you're a gamer, we deeply encourage you to attend this panel.

When and Where
The panel has been confirmed, though details are pending. If we're all lucky, think Saturday afternoon.

General Convention Discussion / Fanime on the 1UP Show!
« on: June 02, 2006, 04:00:50 PM »
Hey everyone. If you were interviewed by a Bridget cosplayer while at Fanime (IE: Me), you were probably wondering what the was for and why with the cameras?

Not The 1UP Show - Episode 4

I haven't watched the entire episode yet (I'm 300 miles away from the office as we speak on a personal trip), but I've seen the Fanime segment. It focuses on the guys from Rooster Teeth Productions, but it also features the very brief interviews I did with a bunch of you guys at Fanime.

Off the top of my head there was a Mario, Dokuro-Chan and FFXI cosplayers featured. There were more, but like I said, off the top of my head.

We're actually wanting to test the waters a bit when it comes to doing more Anime community pieces, so if the folks both at 1UP and on the internet like what they see, we'll probably do more of it. Hopefully I'll be able to arrange something more planned out come AX.

Thanks to those who let me harrass you with a microphone! :D
