Hey guys. I walked into a local shop here in Indiana and saw a flyer for something called the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee WI March 23-24. It looks like a great event and I'm considering making the 5 hour drive up there to check it out. Has anybody ever been to this event? Any opinions on if it's worth the time. I'm mostly into retro gaming stuff and it looks right up my alley, but I'm hoping to get some input before I make the trip Thanks in advance, here's the website for the show:

I go there every year, it's actually in Brookfield, WI which is about 20-30 minutes out of Milwaukee. It's a lot of fun, there's a huge vendor hall with tons of stuff to buy, including lots of retro games. They also have arcade and pinball machines set up on freeplay, a gaming museum with just about every console imaginable set up to play and a bunch of other stuff

I was really hoping to go this year (for the first time) but for whatever reason I thought it was going to be in May, not March.
Ironically enough, it's on the one weekend this month I already have plans. :(
Oh well, maybe next year!

Someone please report back about the new version of the Retro N that uses HDMI. I read it's debut is at that convention.
