  1. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that one of my major interests in any convention is the video game collection. While Otakon's website still seems to advertise Tokyo Attack as coming this year (with more games than last year, no less), Tokyo Attack themselves hasn't confirmed their appearance. Is this still something that is happening?
  2. The Cave in Fairfax has added a Groove Coaster 3 and a Museca 1 1/2. Just went on a short weekend trip to Round1. I don't really get bored of Maximum Tune 5 at all. I hope some place a bit closer gets it in so I don't have to drive almost three hours each way to play it...
  3. Use the trip planner at WMATA.com to determine when you'd have to leave to make it to your destination station. It should know when the last trains leave for each line.
  4. I'm not sure what you mean by five year old policy, but it's spelled out in pretty big letters right on the registration terms and conditions:
  5. Do you know how this process will work for individuals who do not register for Otakon directly (i.e. dealers or staff associates)?
  6. The last thread got autoarchived again, but a lot of things have happened since the last one, so here we go again! Let me break down what I know: GamePlay (Marley Station Mall, Glen Burnie, MD): current lineup is: jubeat (NEW!) DDR (recently refurbished) beatmania IIDX (refurbished late 2016) pop'n music DrumMania In The Groove Marvel vs. Capcom 2 The Simpsons Various redemption games re:gen (White Marsh Mall, White Marsh, MD): a used video game store. Recently lost their jubeat, but has added a Naomi Universal cabinet that they intend to rotate games in. Save Point (Townmall of Westminster, Westminster, MD): a used video game store. Has an ever-rotating selection of games and various pinball machines. I haven't been in a while and the game selection changes rapidly due to the number of events they bring games to, so I honestly can't tell you what's in the store right now. The Cave Gaming Center (Fairfax, VA): a 24 hour LAN gaming center located in the interior of a largely open-air shopping center. They recently added a bunch of arcade music games: jubeat beatmania IIDX pop'n music BeatStream SOUND VOLTEX Round1 (Exton Square Mall, Exton, PA): just recently opened and has way more games than I can list in this space. Standouts include Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone, Theatrhythm All-Star Carnival, Groove Coaster, CROSSxBEATS, Gunslinger Stratos, and should soon receive Maximum Tune 5. Got a hot arcade spot nearby I missed? Let everyone know here!
  7. Daikaya also has a second restaurant literally around the corner called Bantam King. While Daikaya serves pork-based broths, Bantam King serves ramen with chicken broths, as well as chicken dinners. Expect a very long wait for both; typically 45 minutes to an hour and a half during any lunch/dinner period. They do not take reservations but if you send a runner early you can get your name on the list. For junk food Astro Doughnuts is probably my favorite, but it's quite a walk away and they are not open evenings.
  8. By attendance numbers alone, Otakon is far, far larger; Tekko's attendance last year was 8,000, while Otakon's was 29,113. (This is actually below Otakon's attendance record of 34,211; Otakon has had slightly lower attendance since then since the announcement of the move to DC, which could very well trigger another period of growth.) In Baltimore the dealer's room spanned an entire expo hall space; I don't have the square footage off hand, but it's likely comparable to the entirety of Tekko's event space alone. Otakon registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  9. She's been mentioned by a few already, but Mizuki Nana is probably one of the few guests that would get me to buy plane tickets to anywhere in the continent on the spot. Even more so than anyone else in the short list just posted. Would love to see some Vocaloid related guests and events too; I don't know what Crypton's plans are for their Vocaloids after Miku Expo, but I'm certain an appearance at next year's Otakon would do much to keep their upwards momentum going.
