Shameless self-promotion: I'm hosting a Weird Games Panel at Infinite Bits, Miami's biggest video game convention. We'll kick things off on Friday, 6 PM at the Doubletree near the airport but the convention runs all weekend long. You can save a few meseta on admission as pre-registration is still open.
If you were mad enough to stay up with us last weekend you may have caught a few of the unusual games in my collection, which include Super Mic Chan where you use a USB PS2 microphone to literally scream at meteors while avoiding monkeys to save planet earth, or eating falling hot dogs with a floating clown head in Snacks N' Jaxon which I detailed in this ancient malformed blog post. I aim to traumatize with ten obscure titles from my questionable game collection. All games will be playable, so I will need a few volunteers and will be awarding those brave souls with swag for making an ass of yourself. Oh yes, there will be video.
There's plenty of other cool stuff going on at the con, too. They have one of the most expansive retro game museums I've ever seen, Twin Galaxies will be hosting official World Record competitions, there's an Unreal Engine 3 level design thing, and special guests like Billy Mitchell, Doug Walker, Ben Heck, and the guy that made the Metal Gear Awesome series, Egoraptor. It wouldn't be a proper nerdfest without a Rock Band faceoff, video game cover band performances and movies, and they've got that covered, too. Also, some guy in a robot suit from Hialeah.
Should be good times, see you there!
