Gen Con 2013 is just around the corner, and I’m already losing sleep from the building excitement. Making it to Gen Con has been high on my gamer bucket list for close to two decades and in only a few short months, I’ll finally get to experience the geektastic event that is “the best four days in gaming.” Event registration was a little over a week ago, and while I didn’t get into every event I had hoped for, I was actually surprised I made it into the majority. Here’s a quick run-down of my Gen Con schedule for Thursday August 15th, which includes the event description and my first impressions of what lies in store.
Being a geek is an investment in time, money, and most importantly interest. But what happens when the time isn’t available or the interest isn’t there? With so many things to keep up on, past and present, it can often be difficult to stay on top of what-is-what and to be as informed and exposed as possible. Join us this week as we reveal some of our personal shortcomings in geekdom. Whether it’s geek-centric things we flat out don’t enjoy or haven’t had the pleasure of getting our hands on, we all come clean on our holes in the geek game. Don’t be hatin’, but get your hate-mail ready (and remember to send it to Matt) after this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage.
