Hey guys, here’s my quick recap along with my thoughts on this year’s MAGFest!
I went the whole weekend, except my dad was only available on Thursday, Friday and Sunday for personal reasons.
Thursday: Not much of any note happened on this day, except the long line before the staff opened the arcade.
I wanted to sign up for the Smash Ultimate tournament they were having that day, but by the time the arcade opened due to an unknown delay – it opened at 2:15 instead of 1:00 – they had already cancelled it.
I spent most of my time in the arcade and bought a GameCube glass from the Pint-Sized Pixels vendor in the marketplace.
Friday: Didn’t spend much time on this day because my dad had to go to North Carolina for personal reasons.
Saturday: I spent the most time on this day (~11 hours, in fact) and only my mom was with me this time.
I signed up for another Smash tournament and stayed at Shesez’ panel a bit to kill some time.
When the tournament started, I was out of the bracket in the first round.
Later, I bought a second copy (my old one died out long ago) of Mario Kart: Double Dash from Re:Gen’s vendor and managed to befriend one of the employees. (A note that despite the price tag shown in the image link, I negotiated a $40 deal)
Sunday: I signed up for another Smash tourney, and this time I did well enough to get into the second round before I was out.
Overall, I had a great time (despite how crowded it got on Saturday) and look forward to next year’s conference.
See y’all later.
