They'd rule with dignity

So I'm home from ConnectiCon now. Thank you to everyone who came to the panels on Friday, or by my table on Friday and Saturday. Getting to talk with people face to face is one of my favorite parts of attending conventions, so it was really nice to see you all this weekend. ConnectiCon is the only convention I'm doing this year, mostly due to the attention our new house warrants. However next year I'm aiming to get back on the circuit like I used to years ago, and will be trying to hit up some conventions I've never done before.

I've got a lot to do this month, but I'll definitely be making time for Fat Princess. Once they patch out the multiplayer/connection issues I'll try and set up a Fat Princess GameDay where we can all jump on and play some matches. I just hope it happens soon, I'd hate to see it become another Castle Crashers (where by the time they fix the issues, a lot of people have given up and moved on).

Of course, we also have Turtles in Time: Reshelled this week. Fingers crossed there are no co-op connectivity issues there, because I've been itching for Turtles in Time all summer.

Now Konami just needs to release Metal Warriors on XBLA, with updated graphics or not, and my "favorite games from my childhood" collection will be complete. So, how about it, Konami?

Webcomic Auction @ ConnectiCon

There seems to have been a miscommunication involving the cameo appearance I had planned to give away for the charity auction.

I was unable to attend the actual auction, so the appearance in the comic strip etc was supposed to be auctioned off by proxy... and I signed a comic book with the word "Congratulations" that was supposed to be given to the winner, with instructions to meet me at my table to do the sketch/talk about the character/storyline, etc.

Apparently this information got miscommunicated, and all they auctioned off was the signed comic book with no mention of the guest appearance in the strip.

So I'm hoping now that I can find the winner of the auction via the website, and I can get you your sketch and guest appearance. I have your name, so if you bid on (and won) a signed Analog and D+Pad at ConnectiCon this weekend, you're entitled to quite a bit more. So please email (include your name) so we can get things squared away.
