GENCON!!!!!!!!
« on: 01 June 2017, 12:14:26 »
Any speculation of what the Ltd editions from IWM and CGL might be?   Dice?  Patches?  Pins?     Just a little Pre Gencon Excitement
This is my PPC. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My PPC is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My PPC, without me, is useless. Without my PPC, I am useless..

And HBS (if they are at Gencon) will have Battletech computer game Beta

Now for me to sort out a PC which can meet the minimum spec requirements for the Beta  :-[

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

speck - it is that weekend you have all to yourself to do the important things around the house and not get interrupted by messages from El Presidente or the Officewench or even having to answer demands for information about classic minis going missing from the website because everybody else is at some small gathering of gaming groupies in some small town 100 miles away  ;D

It has been pretty quiet on the IWM and the CGL fronts lately.

It's close to June 6th.....is that still a big announcement date??

My soon-to-be-retired rig is below on some specs (processor), above on others (video, RAM quantity). The game ran well enough for me.

btw, what is Gencon?

It's the place where they play Battletech. Not to be confused with GenCon, where BattleTech is played.

Neither place should be confused with Gen Con, which is the big gaming convention held every August, which will feature neat new stuff from CGL and IWM.  O0

Not only still happening, but bigger than ever.  Either the biggest, or second biggest gaming con in the world (I forget if Essen is bigger or not)

Something like 60,000 people every year converge on Indianapolis for it.  Great time.

60k? Closer to 80k when you add in the people working the show.

Make sure you don't accidentally go to Gin Con. They don't play much BattleTech there.

Just FYI, I'm planning to go to the Whats Up With Catalyst event again and to bring my phone to record it. So, assuming the Hotel WiFi cooperates, I should be able to put up a video again this year.

When I started to go to Gencon 13 years ago the attendance was 20000 now it's over 60000. Good for the con bad for the parking and getting hotel rooms.

IIRC it's the biggest gaming convention in the U.S. (Updated based on IAB2's post.)

Im sure for a game convention its the largest. Im pretty sure the Media Frenzy San Diego Comic Con beats Gencon by far.

Gin Con is way too snooty for beer or pretzels.

You CAN play Battletech at Gin Con, but you can only run Knights of the Inner Sphere units.

That is correct old boy, only R.A.F. units allowed at Gin Con, jolly good show, chocks away, home in time for tea and medals  ^-^
Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

But I for one ain't gonna be near work on Wed. the 16th thru Sat the 19th. We're closed on Sundays, so sorry...

Nope I's gonna go on a 'lil vacation... wanna meet me there? I'll be about and around the Convention center.

Hopes to meet and greet ya!

One year at the Battletech tables Pizza was delivered. That was a good day. I think that was same night as the fire drill also.

If it's at all like Origins, there will probably be dice, a few pins, and shirts.
