So who all is going to the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo this year? It's going to be June 16 & 17 at the Bellevue Red Lion and sounds to be a lot bigger and better than last year's (admittedly kick ass) show. The vendor area is going to be twice as big with a lot more space to walk around (not going to be as cramped as last year's accommodations, thankfully). There's going to be a huge Free Play room with four Steel Battalion set ups, every SNES & N64 game ever released (domestically, anyway), tons of consoles and games including imports... There's going to be tournaments held all weekend too. I won't get to enjoy any of that tho b/c I'm going to be manning a booth w/ two of my buddies. (If you went to PRGE last year, we're the guys who had the Pikachu statue.)
One nice thing is if you aren't in the Seattle area (or close enough to drive here), the Red Lion has special room rates, at least 25% off (and up). Just mention SRGE when reserving a room. I'm a bit bummed it's not being held in the U-District again this year (it was within walking distance from me!), but it sounds like the space they've got is bigger and better, so I'm really looking forward to it. Also, anyone from DP, just mention the site at my booth and I'll give you 10% off your purchase (barring the $3 grab bags, that is).
