Looks like I may have to try to go on Saturday also, Hideo Kojima will be at GameFest for a conversation at noon March 17.

Link to register for the free event (Registration begins tomorrow Wednesday February 22 at 1 pm):

http://kojimagamefest.eventbrite.com/

If you're registering, I would try to get the max amount of tickets to reserve seats for other CAGs going.

Got the following e-mail:

We have just confirmed a new addition to the lineup for GameFest, which I am VERY excited about - a conversation with Hideo Kojima at noon on Saturday, March 17. Hideo Kojima is best known for the Metal Gear series of games, and is considered one of the most innovative designers of his generation.

We have two very special opportunities for you with this program. First, we invite you to submit your questions for Kojima by emailing them to AmericanArtGames@si.edu by Thursday, February 23. We will select the best questions to use during the program.

Second, we're giving you the chance to register for this event before the public. Registration will open tomorrow, Wednesday February 22 at 1 p.m., EST. The event is free, but you must register in advance. If you are unable to get tickets or cannot make it to D.C., don't worry, the program will be webcast online.

The Art of Video Games exhibition opens in less than a month! For more information on the exhibition and GameFest, please visit our website. I look forward to seeing you in March!

Exhibition Coordinator

Crap, I saw this too late. I'd be grateful if anyone had an extra ticket.

Is the meetup posted on the first page old or current? I'm in NJ but thinking about going because I went to school in DC and have a cousin down there so I've been putting off a visit for a while.

Sorry, it was from 2008. Some people are going to the opening weekend at "The Art of Video Games Exhibit" at the Smithsonian March 16-18 and to the Video Games Live concert April 7th at the Strathmore Theater.

I will also be at The Art of Video Games Exhibit and I might have an extra Kojima ticket. Just have to see how things pan out in a few days but if do, someone here can definitely have it.

To whom it may concern (Donnie, maybe?):

I'm no longer available for the Video Games Live show at the Strathmore. So if you're trying to get everyone on the same page to get adjacent tickets, don't wait for me.

But I should be able to make Gamefest at the Smithsonian on saturday in a little over a week.

I work Saturdays now so I probably won't go to VGL either. Will be at Gamefest Friday-Saturday and maybe Sunday.

Got mine as well.

Also, I know it wasn't going to be many of you, but were there still people going to PAX East?

I wanted to go, but couldn't plan anything other than "pay for hotel myself and go alone." Its not as much fun without company or anyone to talk to, and too expensive to go by myself. Next year I'll just save and pay for my brother to join me, ends up being more expensive, but it would be more fun I guess.


EDIT: Bought tickets to the Indie Game: The Movie. Good stuff for the wife to see. See ya guys there, I'll probably be early and eat around there if anyone wants to join me.

I think a few of us including nightmare and ind1fference are going to get some food near Gallery Place around 5. Doors open at 6:30, I think we should be done around 6 hopefully. If you have any of our numbers, you can contact us when you get there to find each other.

Don't know when or where our next meetup will be, but there's currently a Living Social deal going on for the D&B over at White Flint: $40 power card for $20 or a $60 power card for $30

http://www.livingsoc...-spend-on-games

The rub is that it has to be used entirely in one visit, and it's gotta be before August of this year.

I assume it's too late for this deal.

Marylanders! Are there any local video game stores left? I almost cried when Mega Media Exchange closed. Also, the Pinball Museum is really cool and you can get an hour of play time for $5 if you go before 3pm.

Planet Replay/Mega Media Exchange was pretty awesome for some thing (NES dogbone ftw!) but their prices on used games were sometimes pretty bad. They'll be missed though for sure.

And thanks for the info about the pinball museum! Hopefully we'll do an early afternoon thing when we go!

Hey everyone! I'm going to be "moving" down to D.C. soon because I'm an incoming freshman at George Washington University. Anyone have any tips about the city in general, be it entertainment, food, or cheap travel (mainly to/from D.C. to either Philly or NYC)?

If you're looking for geek-type events, I found this calendar to be useful for finding stuff. Otherwise, are there any other activities you're looking for?

As for travel, there's always the "chinatown buses". I've use DC2NY in the past, and they've been solid. Otherwise you've got Bolt Bus, Megabus, Vamoose, and others.

I don't have anything as helpful as The Great BM to offer but nevertheless welcome to the DMV :)

Haven't been on this thread in ages. It seems like yesterday that we had the first DC area CAG meetup at D&B. Any of the old members still on this thread? I still see Cleaver and Jon on a regular basis. Hope all is well with everyone.
