From here on out in E3 coverage, there’s not any really major conferences to talk about, so I’ll mostly be just grab-bagging and posting tidbits that I come across during the day. Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark: Grimlock makes his debut! While the redesign of the fan favourite Dino-bots has been a topic of […]
Closing Thoughts Based on the tone of these articles it should come as no surprise that Wizard World St. Louis was a resounding success in my eyes. That doesn’t mean that everything was done right and that there is no room for improvement though. The biggest disappointment about this convention was the lack of current […]
The Costume Contest The costume contest was one of the best organized and fastest moving I have been to. There were approximately 200 contestants and the line to get into the room twisted around two halls. Despite this once the contest started there was no delays. The contestants were sent down the isles and told […]
The Celebrities In the back of the Vendor Hall there was a section of tables with rope lines setup for Wizard World’s celebrity guests. These tables were used for autographs and pictures were explicitly forbidden in this area. Some of the celebrities also had paid meet and greet sessions as well as free Q&A sessions. […]
The Vendor Hall and Artist Alley The Vendor Hall took up the three largest rooms in the Convention center combined. The first section was dedicated to the ticketing area.

It’s been a week since GenCon concluded, so it’s probably time to release Wayne’s last journal concerning the big show. Wayne reflects on the costume contest, Felicia Day and The Guild, and the dealer room. Plus, his final thoughts!
Funnybooks’ Wayne is our man-on-the-floor at this year’s GenCon currently rolling like exploding dice in Indianapolis. In the first of his GenCon Journals, he describes his experience as a first time GenCon attendee, he dives into True Dungeon, and even captures a special message from The Podge Cast’s Luke Meyer. Woot!
Hello Gamers, I am off to GenCon tomorrow, and I am looking forward to a good time. I am packing Labyrinth Lord and Michael Curtis’s Stonehell if anyone is looking for some old school gaming goodness. Labyrinth Lord is a clone of Basic D&D, so if you enjoyed the Red Box (elf is a class!) […]
Hello Gamers, Sorry this is a little bit late, but I got my rat tail tangled on a Street Fighter II machine and it took forever for the paramedics to arrive after we called them on the car phone. I have to say this is a great time to be a traditional gamer. I attended DexCon in […]
