Late for being super-early with this thread this year. Who's excited? :mrgreen:

As usual I'm looking forward to it but dont know if I'll make it.

The question is will the suite be host by Triton again, will Sponge return or will we have a new leader step up this year? I'm not going to be sleeping there but its really the coolest place to hang out away from the convention.

I'll be in charge of the BHE area again & we should have the same space for the "Benheck Experience" as per previous years, sharing with NintendoAge and Dennis. We were in the BHE area all night Friday and Saturday, so the necessity of the Suite is more or less been phased out. I won't speak for Tritjohn either but I think there was a money issue last year, per rooms ordered/people who said they were coming but ultimately didn't. There is so much pre-show/afterparty events going on its definitely worth it to stay on-site at the Sheraton. That said, if you guys do decide on the suite route that is fine, just remember that you are welcome to hang out in the BHE area, at no premium cost (meaning whatever the suite worked out to last year, per person).

With so much going on at MGC and never enough time to do it, I might end up going on Thursday night.

...as some Ancient Tapatalk Theorists believe.

I'm there and looking forward to being on-site this year. Also, I too may be able to be there on Thursday, depending on how it lands in relation to spring break. I'll need to look that up, especially if others can do so as well.

OMGC

Edit: MGC does align nicely with Spring Break, so I may be able to pregame with anyone else able to make it Thursday.

Looking at you, Illinois Contingent. :P

I may or may not go, pretty much definitely won't take the leadership role again. I'm living in Denver now, but my job gives me free flights... on stand-by. Right now the flights are 94% open getting there on Friday night and if I risk taking the last flight of the night the day before I work, 100% open coming home, but there's still loooots of time for those flights to fill up.

The only thing we really need to figure out now is how many tables we need (last year's +1 I think would be ideal) and when to hold Lorne's Seance/Electronic Exorcism. :wink:

The extra table would be good...if we had the room lol. I dunno if there'd be enough space, as it was a bit cramped last year (maybe it just felt cramped with the lack of that extra table?).

Anyone know what's up with our sleeping/partying quarters? ...am I going to have to get one of those face thingies to make sure I don't wind up at the wrong hotel again? :lol:

I think I'm a member of Nintendo Age (who we shared a room with) so I'll post over there about room setup. I'm sure Dennis (who had the NES setups with his homebrew game) and Marshall will be in the same spots as last year so the rest of the space I'm sure we can find something to settle the needs of both parties.

And yeah, just get a "face thingy," considering the Benheck is pretty much been reduced to you and me now. Just don't use your real name or spell your last name wrong so nobody that you don't want creepin on it can find it (or spell it correctly, whichever has a lower stumble-upon factor :P)

Additionally, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon releases at midnight Sunday (Saturday to Sunday), so if anyone also wants to get a copy or just bum along, they are welcome.

As an aside, if I remember to log in from a PC, I'll change the MGC announcement thread from 2011 to this one. :shock:
