||SGC- ScrewAttack Gaming ConventionOn the July 4th weekend, ScrewAttack.com held their first convention at the Westin Hotel in Dallas/Fortworth Texas. Wow, what an awesome convention. This was my first con and it exceeded all my expectations and then some. |
The whole con was packed with things to do, and I did as much of it as I could. I went to all the SA crew panels except for the AVGN's. After the debate there was a HUGE line that went all the way out to the one entrance to the hotel so there was no way I was going to get in. I actually didn't get to meet James at all which was probably the only disappointment of SGC. The Brentalfloss sing-a-long was fun. At one point, I can't remember which song, he ran down the isle and sang some parts to a couple g1s including me. Youtube Hell was also very funny and Mark did a very nice job putting it all together.
Keith was absolutely hilarious the whole convention. I heard he chucked fruit at people and saw him pick up girl and run away with her. I don't know what he was doing but as I was going up to my room one time I came to where the chairs were by the elevator and saw him talking to two old ladies putting his shirt back on. Who knows what he was doing but I hope it's part of one of the videos. He did so much other great stuff and I'm glad he's with ScrewAttack because SGC wouldn't have been the same without him.
I didn't really play a whole lot of games over the course of the con. For the console game room I played a couple of Brawl matches, one pathetic game of Halo 3, and an embarrassing match of Street Fighter 4 against Angel. In the Arcade room I mostly played Marvel vs Capcom 2 and few Street Fighter 3 matches. Out of all the MvC2 matches I played I only won one of them. There were a lot of skilled players and I get my ass handed to me, but it was fun.
I loved the random elevator conversations, going to Denny's with a few g1s, and all the other little things that made SGC awesome. All though I might have been a little shy at times and was a little star struck, it was great to meet all the g1s and SA crew. Especially "Anonymous", he was awesome. It was the most fun I've had in a long time and I can't wait to go to SGC 2010.
