Origins Gamefair 2009

Origins, is a gaming convention held each year in Columbus Ohio that primarily caters to Pen & Paper RPG's, Boardgames, Miniature games and Tradable Card games.

Due to R/L commitments I was only able to go on Saturday. Unfortunately no games for me this year. I did get to walk the vendor hall to see what was around. Lots of discounts on old RPG's and even some miniatures. Nothing really caught my eye though. But I did pick up a Chuck Norris joke book. :D

My son an I did get to check out the Battletech pods. If you don't know what these are, they are a pod that you sit in with a speed control on your left and a joy stick on your right. You are totally enclosed as if you were in the cockpit of a mech. You battle other players, there was probably a dozen pods at the show. Even though the graphics are highly outdated it's a very fun game.

The attendance at the con was probably down from last year, but not by a large amount. Hopefully next year I will be able to schedule some time to actually play some games.

Rock Band: The Beatles

Wow this looks to be a must get for me, even though I have Guitar Hero: World Tour. I'm a huge Beatles fan and rumors have it that I can use my GH:WT instuments with this! Here's their cinamatic trailer.

Back in EQ2 and having a blast!

I re-subscribed to EQ2 and am having fun. I joined my guild for a Protector's Realm raid on Friday and it was a total blast! Something that LOTRO never really produced for me.

Thinking of betraying my Guardian to Beserker. Still mulling that over.

Should be some good times ahead!
