So the area directly underneath registration is the Dealer’s… uh, Room. I guess. I mean, it’s in a room. It’s not outside, so I’m assuming that’s true. I’m not an expert on the dichotomy of rooms and not rooms, but you could also call it an area or a general… sort of… dealery… zone.
We walk around the Dealer’s Coordinates for a bit, checking out all the shirts and artwork they’ve got for sale. One guy’s got some crazy Link artwork going on, and a bunch of other stuff I’ve completely forgotten, which is a shame, because it was rather amazing. You really should have seen it. Every time I get near the Game Room side of the place, I hear sweet Mega Man music cranked out of this one TV that people are stopping by to get their asses kicked on (I assume they got their asses kicked because Jesus, Capcom, why can’t you make one single goddamn game that I’m good at?). It’s a decent collection of dealer stands. Look out, more Otakon comparisons coming your way!
Otakon has about nine billion merchants. And there are only ever, like, three that I’m interested in. Two of those are because they’re selling manga and I need the next volume of Trigun Maximum. And the other one is usually a place with a cool action figure or shirt I like. MAGFest has like ten. And they’ve all got something interesting and if I had more money, I would be broke.
Anyhoo, as I mentioned this was next to the Game Room. Which is three rooms. Well, one of those rooms is also the same room that is the Dealer’s Room, so, well, let’s just not get into that right now.
All this geography is giving me middle school flashbacks.
