SGC 2010

Here's a question I never would've imagined I'd have an answer to: What does it feel like to have beautiful women dressed up like anime/video-game characters asking YOU for a photo and autograph?

Answer: It feels pretty fucking awesome.

Honestly, easily one of the top ten weekends of my life. Meeting fans from as far away as England and Portugal, signing autographs, doing a panel with Spoony, GPX and the Life & Level guys, hosting my own Q&A panel, watching it get fuller with time and being applauded for broad references to "Babylon 5", being invited up onstage with the ACTUAL ScrewAttack crew, improvising a "debate" with The Game Underthinker, meeting Keith Apicary, Brentalfloss, The Angry Nerd and the whole crew in the flesh, being treated like a goddamn rock star - or, at least, moderately-noteworthy musician - for posting jokey videos on the internet... EPIC. There's just no other word for it.

More in-depth type stuff to come but, for now... wow, just wow.

congratulations on your new-found fame!

I just hope it doesn't get the best of You

Don't sell out! or at least try not to endorse any crap.

No matter what the marketing blokes tell you, the Game Overthinker name is _not_ a brand. It's just a geek philosopher speaking his mind, expanding other's horizons in the process

Amazing con, & getting to meet Bob just made it more amazing. The whole thing was very much the best side of gaming thrown into a hotel far too fancy for the people occupying it. To those who couldn't make it this year, try next time, it's awesome! This is Dr. Pepper, signing off.

I view Bob as kind of a hero. In a mad world, it's nice to see a man whose brutally honest and true to himself receive respect and admiration for simply doing what he loves with integrity.

Hear! Hear!

Twinmill said...

Well, congratulations, man.

I may complain on how you treat the hardcore gaming scene as a whole, but you still have the most compelling webshow out there. More importantly, you know your stuff, which, surprisingly, alot people whose webshows I've watched simply don't. So it's definitely something to be proud of.

Aye, one of these years I'll go, and I hope to see you there too!

Nathan said...

Sweet! You deserve it. Oh, and anytime a B5 reference is dropped, applause is always warranted.

James said...
