Yeah I had a great time, but I did very little shmupping, so other than briefly saying hi to beatsgo I didn't really interact with y'all. Hey, awkwardness has always been a specialty of mine. Then again, this is a niche video game convention we're talking about... the bar for social etiquette isn't particularly high, so maybe I'm just par for the course. 8)

I'm in that video around the 4:44 mark at the VOOT cab. I remember playing that guy; he had played VOOM back in the day but not VOOT, so he was struggling. After our games I was explaining some of the differences between the two, right as you walked by apparently.

Here's Tommy and I from the silly photo. I had only seen the "serious" photo, this is so great... just look how ecstatic Tommy is:

He and I both plan on returning next year, although unless Dangun Feveron makes an appearance, my shmupping will probably be pretty minimal again. Or who knows, maybe I'll catch the shmup bug again before then.

Had a wonderful time at Raj of the Garage 5. Really can't wait to return next year.

Davey and I are both thinking of hitting up Michigan Masters this year, too. I intend on traveling around a bit more to more of these conventions because Raj was such a fun, affordable time and I rarely get an opportunity partake in this niche hobby for extended periods like that.

EDIT: I promise I was having a much better time then I look like in that picture Davey posted, lol.

To all,

It was a pleasure to hang out with everyone even if time together was short considering I was competing multiple rhythm games for the whole weekend. If you recall, I'm the other Asian dude with glasses who mostly played IIDX, DDR, PIU, and Futari Black Label. It was a pleasure to see people enjoy my Futari board and looking forward to another meetup at Raj.

hey guys!

It’s been long time...
I guess my last visit was December 2017!

I just recently had time of reminiscing of old days long past...
I cannot say I play too much shooter games... or any games at all .
lately, I had been playing a lot of NES games... just anything at random.
and I always enjoy playing my Neo Geo AES... recently playing Money Puzzle Exchanger. It’s an addicting game for puzzle game.

I was playing some Xbox 360 shooters recently. and sometimes I play Neo Geo shooters too.

Not sure what everyone is up to nowadays... I would love to hang out or meet up , even if not to play any games.. it is the cold season so I am spending more time playing games as my other interests will not be active until the warm days and fair weather arrive.

For the record, my telephone number remains the same as it have been for 21 years now!
I am available every weekend as I finally advanced my career where weekend work in no longer necessary like many years ago!

But anyways.. hope to hear soon and maybe gather with old mates

Money Puzzle Exchanger is great. Tommy and I were lamenting that they didn't have it at Raj. We did get to play plenty of Magical Drop, though!

I'm usually free. Been busy lately on account of work stuff (including online training in my free time), but I could surely carve out time to meet up if people want to make that happen.

If we plan it out far enough in advance (like at least a month), I could try to make the trek up from KC to hang out, too.
