I don't really want my RB stuff anymore, but it's all on PS3 though.

Hey guys, just wanted to let anyone meeting at the metro know, I won't be taking the shuttle. I'll be riding over - meet everyone on the lawn - 7ish?

I probably won't leave until 6pm. I'll probably get there around 7:30pm since I don't know my way around, lol.

I still might be taking the Metro shuttle, depending on traffic (I-66 is hell on earth). Either way, 7pm is fine. I might try to get there earlier, as I get paranoid about securing a good spot on the lawn.

I think chair peeps need to sit int the back.

As far as beverages go - I actually have a few bottles of hard cider (alcohol) if anyone is interested in me bringing them. Bought them for party on the 4th, but never drank them, and I doubt I will ever drink them. Only downside - I don't have a cooler.

I have a medium sized cooler filled with ice that I'm bringing. There will be room for more stuff.

Also, I just called and was told that canopy type things are not permitted. Only handheld umbrellas and they ask that they be held as low as possible. Also, it was recommended to me to bring a tarp for under the blanket.

Can we bring chairs to the PLAY concert?

I have no tarp, hopefully rain is a minimum. Otherwise, see ya guys at the lawn. I'm bringing my fiance, she doesn't even watch tv, all she knows is Mario Bros, Bejeweled and the PS1 game Crash Team Racing for some odd reason, she is gonna be lost.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV).

Chairs are allowed, but they have to sit in the back 1/3rd of the lawn section. I guess if some of us are bringing chairs, that'll be easy to determine where we sit. Also, for those of you worried about the wet ground, they have these reclining ground cushions you can rent from Wolf Trap, which is what I plan on doing.

For anyone looking out for me through the sea of potential umbrellas, I'll be wearing my black guy-falling-through-space shirt.

I'm getting ready. Doubt I'll bring anything to drink. Plan to eat some KFC before hand. I don't plan to stay passed 11:30pm since I plan to work tomorrow morning.

To contact me, either send me a text message or direct message via Twitter (or if you know one of my gmails, email that). Any of those will alert my cell phone.

I'm thinking of handling Crab Town in Glen Burnie, MD, but I need to re-assure certain arcade games are back up and running beforehand.

Next two weekends are shot for me but I'd be up for something in August. I've been missing a group to cookout with since I got to DC.

I picked up a PS Move (2 controllers), the camera, High Velocity Bowling, and Sports Champions off of Craigslist for $80. I planned on never buying this, but that's a great CAG deal.

Made a schedule for Otakon. Not much in all honesty that I HAVE to go, most things are flexible with what others want to see.

But here are my must see panels. (I have other panels of interest, but no big deal across the board)

Friday:
1:00PM Otaku and the Grim Reaper
6:30PM Mega Man: Made in Japan
9:30PM Fukushima Dai-ichi (no way I am missing this!)

Saturday:
2:00PM Let's Make Videogame Music
11:00PM Capcom Fanpanel

Sunday:
10:30PM FUNimation Sneal Peek
12:30PM Japan's IP Problem
1:00PM Case Closed: Captured in Her Eyes


PS: not going to Distant Worlds, no interest in spending more than what must be spent, including the hotel with Mike and food and such.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV).

I got my ticket.

My Otakon stuff:

Friday
11:30am - Johnny Yong Bosh (might visit since I'm dressed as Renton)
2pm - Nobuo Uematsu Q&A
3:30pm - Nobuo Uematsu Autograph (SO BADLY wish I could be at the Aniplex Panel, at 3pm, but things could change)
6pm - FUNimation Industry Panel
8pm - How to make a fight stick (maybe)
9:30pm - Tales of Otakonia

Saturday
9am - DURARARA!! Panel (maybe)
3pm - Makoto Shinkai Q&A (might catch a little with a co-worker)
4:30pm - Crunchyroll
7:30pm - Distant Worlds Concert (leaving Otakon at 6pm most likely and maybe catch the Light Rail there)
9pm - Bandai After Dark (I wish....maybe I'll catch part of it, but unlikely)
11pm - Capcom Fan Panel (if I return back to Otakon in time)

Sunday
12pm - VIZ Media Panel

The Mega Man Panel was awesome last year, but not skipping FUNimation for it. I BADLY want to see Aniplex, but Nobuo is my favorite. Sunrise and Bandai are also import, but FF Distant Worlds concert is bigger to me. Bold means its 100% guaranteed that is where I'll be at those times.

I paid $61 for my Distant Worlds ticket since there's no way I can miss. Final Fantasy is my favorite series and Nobuo is my favorite composer EVER. Almost all my ringtons are his music, haha.

Not sure what i'm doing at Otakon, used to rush to those Industry panels but now I could just as easily look up what was said on my phone a few hours later. Might try to make Bandai's just to ask what happened to the 0079 subtitle release they announced LAST Otakon .


Edit: Stan Lee coming to Baltimore comic con?! Damn i want his autograph before he kicks the bucket I gotta go now

It's just fun to be at the industry panels IMO.

I got my Otakon badge today. Already ran into 4 CAGs.

I'm dressing up as Renton Thurston tomorrow as a reminder.

I saw him on Saturday and Sunday, but he left early. Either because he sold out or went to a different portion of Baltimore. I expect him to have lots of water next year.
