So CK and I got in to see JewWario. We opted to stand in the back of the room because we’re cool like that. They could only let so many people into the room, however, as the Fire Marshall is a douche. Zhu Zhu and Perry didn’t make it in.
Because there is an exactly-calculated one-man difference between everybody getting out safely and everybody burning alive with no hope.
JewWario was actually really interesting. Once they got things rolling, he talked at length about how to get your consoles to play import games. The DS plays them natively no matter what region it is. The PS2 needs a top-loader installed. And other such tips. About halfway through the panel, I get a text from N1NJ4 saying “Smells awesome in there”. I look around, and he’s standing inside the room, on the other side of the doorway from me, laughing. When I looked back minutes later, he was gone.
JewWario took some questions. One in particular caught my interest. At first, it was about Takahashi’s Challenge, but then he corrected himself to Takeshi’s Challenge. And I remember thinking, “Takeshi? Surely he can’t mean Beat Takeshi. Is there a Takeshi’s Castle game?” Finally, the panel wrapped up and we waited at the back of the room for Lotus Prince. I got bored and wandered off to see where that fantastic music was coming from. Turns out, we were next door to the JamSpace. I watched a band play a little Mega Man music and went back to get the guys to join me, but they were all busy with blah.
Eventually, we’re standing outside the room, and JewWario comes out with the Psychotaku. LP gets a picture with the two of them, and then I get one with the three of them. We hang out and talk for a bit, and then they must be on their way. I really like JewWario, and fully intend to check out his stuff, now. I’ve never seen anyone look so genuinely and completely interested in and pleased to be talking with his fans. He’s a really nice guy and, adding that to his interesting and informative panel, suddenly commands my respect.
While we’re here, I take another look at the sign by the JamSpace, and I realize… while I was in JewWario’s panel… I MISSED BRENTALFLOSS!
