Edit: My editor told me I need to elaborate more, because apparently one word doesn’t make an article. Anyways, MAGfest is up for its eleventh get together in the general DC area. If you don’t know what MAGfest is, it’s a big festival for fans of video games and music. There’s going to be shows, panels, concerts, tournaments and oodles of other neat events. Some notable people that you may know are going to be there: Yuzo Koshiro and Kinuyo Yamashita (composers for Shenmue and Castlevania respectively), James Rolfe (Anger Video Game Nerd), Brent Black (brentalfloss), Arin “Egoraptor” Hanson and Jon “Jontron” Jafari (Game Grumps) and so much more. You can see the whole list of guests here.
Also, along with the guest, there’ll be bands and performers as well, which you can check out here. The band which I’m particularly excited for are the The Protomen, who have rock opera concept albums about Mega Man. ‘Nuff said.

Edit: The editor just told me that people from NUReviews will be there as well. So, for whatever reason, you want to so hi to us, just look for the guy with the big head and a short guy. If there’s anything you want us to do, like recording panels or concerts, or try to get an interview, we’ll see what we can do.
