    Wow. I didn't know that was a thing. I go to Austin every once in a while. Normally stop by Game Over and Pinballz.

    I went last year. Had a pretty good time, but the space they used at the Palmer Events Center was quite cramped. They are using a much bigger space this year at the Palmer. I'll be there. Also planning the usual visit to Pinballz and the flagship Game Over.

    I hope they fill the vendor area. They seem to be sending requests for vendors on Facebook.

    Austin is a great place for this. It's a fun city and it's centrally located so people from both the east and west coast can attend.

    Sadly I've only been to Austin twice, in one week, with the ex-girlfriend. I did visit Game Over and Pinballz (ohh my I loved my visit there) and maybe one day would like to make a trip back there.

    I'm going to Houston in a few weeks. Of course, the one time I'm in Texas is two months before they have events in Austin and Arlington. God willing, I will be at Retropalooza or this next year!

    400 miles away, no way to get there, would likely break the bank at the Game Over store there, and no one in my family is going to Texas anytime soon heh. I was there in May of 2012 and I'm not getting back with the ex just to go there.

    The biggest deterrent, I don't drive, nor have ever wanted to.
