Looking back at this amazing weekend I just want to repeat what has been said on all of the podcasts on the Retroids Network. That message is and has always been what a fantastic community we have. As someone who is a little introverted and doesn't say much because he's afraid of saying the wrong thing I found myself to be very comfortable with the company of the community. I met a ton of people this weekend and it's nice to finally match a face to a gamer tag or voice. Here's a small blurb about everyone I got a chance to meet over my day and a half at MGC all meant in good fun!!!
Nermassa - Was kind enough to pick me up from the airport and be a someone I would be proud to call a friend.
Vladrek - Very cool guy and proud owner of Helgast helmet with glowing eyes!
RPT - Super nice guy from Australia (duh!) who hates men at work and is a proud owner of a 3DS!
