Gencon: Best 4 Days In Gaming Part 1 – The Dealer Hall

Header from Gencon Indy's Home Page

If you listen to the PNG Bro-down, you’ll notice that some of us sure do talk about Gencon Indianapolis a lot.  Well, me in particular.  This will be my 7th year in attendance to this venerable gaming convention that had it’s earnest beginning back 1968.  I won’t go on about it’s history, as you can easily look it up at wikipedia, but I would like to share some of the aspects of this particular convention that has captured my heart through a series of articles leading up the week of Gencon Indianapolis 2009.  What exactly draws in the roughly 28,000+ attendees and makes this the best four days in gaming?  We’ll start, my fellow PNG’ers, by taking a look at the Dealer Hall.  Why not start with the actual gaming at the convention you ask?  As we always say here at PNG, everything we do is slightly skewed to our personal view of things.  I really enjoy trying out new games first and foremost over playing ones that I have at home.  With that being said, expect an article about the convention gaming next week, and read on about this mystical paradise that is called….

PNG Daily 4/13/09: This is What You Should Have Done Konami

Where's my sequel?

Where's my sequel?

Ripped from the headlines of Giant Bomb, Konami is going to be releasing a dual stick top down zombie shooter over Xbox Live and Playstation Network called Zombie Apocalypse soon.  I am all for the destruction of the undead, but come on Konami!  Quit messing around and give us our sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors!  I need it and you have it so you better give it.

The event schedule for Gencon 2009 has been released.  The PNG crew that will be attending should be picking out our events this weekend.  Registration opens up for True Dungeon events at 12pm eastern and all other events at 3pm eastern this Sunday.  You should find the file at the top of the list after clicking the link.

Dawn of War II got patched yesterday.  Among the fixes listed is one that finally will allow you to get the achievement for beating the game.  They also fixed a myraid of bugs, did some balance tweaks, and pitched in a free multiplayer map for up to 6 players.

Are you a Seattle resident that enjoys baseball and owns a DS?  If you are, you’ve probably been enjoying Safeco Field’s Nintendo Fan Network already, but get ready for some pretty crazy new features next time you go to the park.  According to 1up, fans with DS’ can now order food, get news, read ESPN columns, and get closed captioned PA announcements all from the comfort of your seat. 

Outtie 5k.

Update:  Josh has pointed out to me that Konami was kind enough to already make a sequel to ZAMN called Ghoul Patrol back in 1994.  So how about a remake then?
