You should have had a mega beer in your hand.

I mentioned a bit of this on Sunday night, but I just wanted to thank everyone for making me feel like a friend. I think I was the only one who hadn't met the team in person yet, and even though we knew each other from the site, sometimes you can't really tell how things will go in person. But right off the bat everyone couldn't have been more open and welcoming, so I appreciate it. Started to feel like good friends pretty quickly, which doesn't happen often for me. If I can make it next year and someone wants to stay closer to the venue (assuming it's in the same place, of course) feel free to reach out about sharing a room.

Finally, to those urging me to put my NYC detour back on the itinerary for Nintendo World, it was totally worth it! Bill's directions were spot on and I managed to pack a lot into just the few hours I was there. Got to see Nintendo World (my inner child was kind of freaking out), Times Square, a couple awesome hole-in-the-wall game and media stores, even some good NY pizza. RWX and NYC were both a blast, one of the busiest, but best, long weekends I've had in quite some time!

@zophar53: It was great to finally meet you, and I had a blast hanging around with you and the guys. The Nintendo Store really is something worth visiting; glad you got a chance to make the trek!

I think we talked about this at dinner. This is exactly how I felt the first year. I feel like I tend to take time to warm up to new people sometimes. From the moment I walked in, I felt like we'd been meeting up for years.

You fit right in from the beginning. It was nice to meet you in person. I might have to take you up on that room offer though... Smiley

Looks like it was a lot of fun! Congrats to singlebanana!

Why does Crabby have a necklace of a labeless N64 cart?

Thanks!  And to answer your question, Crabby came in 3rd place in the Mario Kart tournament.
