Recommended Posts

me and stevo are back. damn, mag rocked.

i'd say that the best part for me was the twenty minutes or so that virt, norg, escariot and i spent singing tags. videos to come, hopefully, but next year there is totally going to be an acapella rockout concert of us singing manchoir stuff, i hope.

Whew...this was my first MAGFest and I have to say... DAAAAMN, that rocked! It was definitely awesome to meet everyone that showed up. I was definitely excited about the gaming, but more so about being able to hang out with some of the biggest names in the community.

And finally, FINALLY, I got one wish I've had since I've been on OCR, and that was to see Ailsean, LIVE! Man, the Smash Bros. Concert was off the hook!

THEY HAD BACON!!!!

The Smash Bros lineup changes a bit every year, but the constants are Midee, Ailsean, Norg, Prozax, and virt. This year, they had ktriton on drums (I think last year was shawnphase?) and then this other guitarist, but I didn't recognize him. They played a bunch of tunes including Zelda 64, FF6 (Phantom Forest), Actraiser & Castlevania, "You Got the Touch", and an original written by Jake.

The whole thing was really great - not just that set, but the whole weekend. SO many cool people.. the only thing I didn't like was that it seemed to end so soon!

Man...sounds like some sweet bunch of songs, zircon. Glad you had fun overall. I take it you guys enjoyed promoting OCR and the new Radical Dreamers remix album over at the panel...hopefully there were a couple of RD fans there since the game is so niche.

Anyway, pictures, video, audio...whatever...I want some MAGfest stuff in this thread. lol. I guess Jill will handle the photos as usual.

Back from Magfest, and it's lonely already! This year's group was so enormous that I wish I could have had more time to spend with people in smaller crowds. Mannnn... Anyway, I didn't go too crazy with the picture taking because there were plenty of others with cameras. Here's what I gots.

Just a modest chunk of the overall OCR crew. Clockwise from top left: Fusion2004, Moguta, q-pa, BGC, Escariot, CHz, Anime Freak, Salty, Mustin, Dale North, gncmastwe16 (now revelation orange), Xerol, Starla, Larry, Rama, pixietricks, Kroze, Bluefox, zircon, Shael Riley, Suzumebachi, Geoffrey Taucer, DjSammyG, and bustatunez

BIIIIIG group shot! So big that we couldn't fit everyone in it. I know almost everyone in this pic, but it would take forever to tag and I doubt anybody would be able to realistically use the tags as a resource anyway so meh. ^_~

Nice work!

Yeah, Kroze and I were shouting along at the top of our lungs (I <3 cheesy 80s pop). Those glitchy NES backdrops were the best as well; who made those again?.

What? There was a Radical Dreamers project?? ;-)

None of us except those who posted it got to hear the full work there AFAIK, since the Internet was so terrible. I'm downloading it now.

But yeah, thanks for a great time all!

When did these happen? I think I'm perhaps the only person missing from the top shot. Oh, and Dave, but he was barely there.

Also: WHAT'S YOUR MOTHER... FUCKING... NAME?!

Hey, I'm in there, too...

Hells yes, my friend. There were 3 or 4 people that had video cameras, and I asked norg and virt to get those to me as soon as they get them. Although, I'm not sure if the Dorsai enjoyed it as much as we did.
