MAGFest 9 has killer guest lineup, includes HAWP cast photo



MAGFest is probably my favorite convention/gaming event ever. Where else can you play games for days on end, only to stop to get your face rocked off by multiple game music concerts. All my friends are there, we all drink and laugh and do stupid things we regret, which are captured in pictures we regret. It's always fun. This year the event has the biggest guest line-up in their nine year history, and it includes some people you should be familiar with. 

The MAGFest 9 guests you'll notice most are obviously Ashly Burch, Anthony Burch, and Ashley Davis, from "Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'?" and "Once Upon a Pixel." We support our own, so we'll list them first! On a more personal note, my boys from The OneUps will also be performing live. Please come out to support my people!

Jon St. Jon, the voice of Duke Nukem, will also be a guest, as will Wes Johnson, the voice actor known for roles in Oblivion and Fallout 3

Plenty of game music composers will also show face at this game music-focused event. Hiroki Kikuta, the guy behind the awesome Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 scores, will also be there. So will Grant Kirkhope (Goldeneye 64), Dan Froelich (Jill of the Jungle), and Alexander Brandon (Dues Ex, Unreal Tournament).

Oh, and the bands! Aside from The OneUps, there are eleven more showing up: The Protomen, The Miniboses, Metroid Metal, Armcannon, Bit Brigade, The Megas, Year 200X, X-Hunters, Entertainment System, This Place Is Haunted and Rare Candy. Get ready for the best game music concerts ever. Find more details after the jump.

We'll also be there! I'll be there. Many other Destructoid community members will also be there. There's a party being planned. Please come out to hang out, game, and support these awesome people. MAGFest 9 takes place on January 13-16, 2011, in Alexandria, Virginia, at the lovely Hilton Mark Center. See you there!

No Man's Sky planning 'something different' at PlayStation Experience

I've been excited for No Man's Sky for almost a years' time now, but it has become a passive excitement as I wait patiently for it to release. This video, what with some footage I haven't seen and it generally looking a...more

Narcosis: Hallucinogenic, ocean floor terror

I said it when I checked out Amnesia developer's SOMA early this year, but we could do with some more games set underwater. It's a scary place. There are goblin sharks down there, damn it. And you don't even have t...more

Inside My Radio is a rad rhythm-platformer

There are things to consider when it comes to playing music in public. Are you in an open space, perhaps a park, with enough distance between you and others so that your tunes don't dance on over into unwilling ears? Are you...more
