It was better than last year, and that says a lot. Saturday night had a rave party that I ended up breaking my voice in. So much hype, but I gotta get that treated.
There's was a lot of Skullgirls love at this con. There was a tournament for it funded by LabZero games themselves. The winner gets some kind of bundle from them, but I don't know or remember all of the details.
I managed to win at that game, alongside a Brawl & Project M tourney, all 3 for medals, but due to some technical issues I'll have to wait longer for that Skullgirls bundle, plus I lost one of my 3 medals without noticing it. Still got its ribbon, though.
For Smash, for once, Brawl entrants outnumber the P:M entrants in my area. That's usually the other way around nowadays. This will continue once Smash 3DS drops, I'm sure, because EVERYONE had a 3DS, there. I'll play all 3 & Smash Wii U if I have to!
For more Skullgirls, I got to meet, take pictures with, and play that game with four of the game's cast: Christine Marie Cabanos (Filia), Sarah Williams (Peacock), Danielle McRae (Painwheel), & Lauren Landa (Squiggly). Danielle told me that the entire cast never manages to be together at once in a con and hopes that will change someday.
Some of the other VAs I met were Scott McNeil again (the original Canadian Piccolo), Chuck Huber again (Android 17), and Ian Sinclair (Space Dandy himself). Matt Mercer (FE Awakening's Chrom), & the legendary Johnny Yong Bosch (Adam Park/2nd Black MMPR, Ichigo, DMC4's Nero, MvC3 Zero) were also here, but I didn't get to talk to them in person. Their lines were really long!
Y'know, thinking about it, with names like these and the army of fans I've seen them have, alongside the auction at the end with even more English VAs signatures, these cons make me realize that people still appreciate dubbed anime a whole lot more than I was shot down for online. ESPECIALLY with Ian being really convincing Dandy all on his own.
Most of my service here was to take cosplay pics for friends and such. I have a lot to look through before I upload them to Facebook, as I used my phone & camera for repeat takes and different types of lighting.
That pretty much covers most of my weekend. Now I can focus a little bit more on getting ready for Smash 4.
UPDATE: After what we've been through today, we're all gonna need to. A LOT.
