First of all, thanks to the organisation of the game room. That's where I spent the major part of my first time in Animecon, and it was really enjoyable.
I was agreably surprise by how the gameroom was never overcrowded. Dunno if you can count that as a positive or bad thing for you, but I was imagining way more people than this (like long ass lines on every places). Or I'm probably the only asshead who cares about the gameroom only in an anime convention...
Especially after ~2am, I have been able to try pretty much everything.
Huge love for the DariusBurst AC EX board! Spent a lot of my night in there, and truly enjoyed it.
As a fighting game player, congrats for having quite a lot of setups (and tournaments). That was really good.
On the less bright side, there was a lot of free space that could have been used for more setups through the whole weekend.
I know it's already a huge effort to gather, sort and set up so much hardware but it's pretty frustruating to see empty tables, or setups with questionable choices of games...
IMO, Infamous (if it was Infamous) or Watchdogs are solo games that are way more enjoyable alone on your couch so you can dive into the story, and HOLY SHIT DID SOMEONE REALLY REQUEST DOA BEACH EXTREME TITS?!
Tastes may vary, but I believe there was games that fitted the theme way more, like other kart games for example. What about another Mario kart? Or Diddy Kong Racing? Sonic transformed?
Or other fun 4 people games, like Playstation all star battle, another Smash bros spot (since this game is always highly crowded), Warioware, Super monkey ball, ...
I really missed some of those games with my friend, as MK8 was always busy and one of the few 4 players party game (if I recall correctly the other ones were Zelda4swords, Marioworld wii, and Mario party).
Also, I believe there was only 2 controllers on Mario tennis 64.
Still, I really enjoyed my time and will gladly come back next year.
Thanks for the nice weekend
