It’s day 3 and boy is it a cold one. We’re still in here though. Saturday is always the most hectic but it’s the most fun in our opinion. Everything has settled in, the cosplayers are in full force, and the fans are hungry to play the new games on display. Some notable mentioned this far are Cloudpunk, where a narrative adventure unfolds and you taxi people around a dystopian cyberpunk city, Rising Hell, where crunching metal riffs and pixelated hellscapes are the backdrop for your ascent into a gauntlet of enemies, and Retromania Wrestling, a spiritual successor to the arcade classic Wrestlefest. All in all, lots of great games on display. Day 3 down and one more to go.

Here’s to the next two days.
