My experience in Awesome Con 2018
I have to say it was refreshing and pleasing. In day one on Friday, nothing I was not interested in going. Already met Troy Barker at Anime USA 2016 and Phil Lamar at Awesome Con 2017. Next year, maybe Fridays might be interesting. Saturday and Sunday was the best experience. Although you have to pay extra ticket to see Joh Boyega. I was not a huge Star Wars fan and didn’t want to pay. Guardian’s main stage panel was worth it. Dave Bautista kick off Q & A but here comes Micheal Rooker and Sean Gunn. Stephen Amell panel was entertaining and wouldn’t follow a child on Instagram. There is some panel I miss such as Janet Varney (I love Korra) and Cress Williams. Even I didn’t see Black Lighting after AwesomeCon. Video games panel was educational such as fangames and science. There were other video game panel I would have gone to.
Mostly, I was at the gameroom provided by Magfest. Table Top gaming were available for board and card games. There were vast select of video games and arcades. These games were range from retro and present. X-Men arcade made it back and brought nostalgia. Even more games brought back my childhood. Killer Instinct, Marvel Vs Capcom 2, Mortal Kombat 3 and many more. Sega’s F-Zero arcade was very fun and bumpy ride. Indie game circle is back with new IPs. There are titles from last year that made a comeback. I will do Indies of the week in this coming Sunday. Exhibit hall still have merchandise and artwork to sell. Black Panther became popular and have panels. Overall, I enjoy myself and can’t wait for next year. May the force be with y’all and see you again.
