I'll be there at some point tomorrow evening.  I have some work to do while I'm there so I'll likely be more reclusive than normal.

Not sure how much time I'm going to have for this, but I started last weekend.  I realized I'm pretty terrible at games nowadays.


Ok, SMB1:


First run through, I thought I remembered the proper warp path, but I didn't. I ended up in World 5 after my second warp, and I knew something had gone wrong. I GO'd in World 6. Looked in my NES Atlas, oh yeah, that's how you warp to World 8. Had a bit of a tough time with World 8, but made it through to the castle with 1 life. Didn't have to use the Atlas to solve the maze, made it to Bowser as little Mario. I was biding my time, waiting for the perfect spot to run underneath him... and then a fucking flame glitch-appears right in front of me and kills me. Seriously, never fucking seen that happen. So yeah, ragequit over here, but totally justified. What a crock of shit.


When bowser spits a fireball but it doesn't show on screen? yeah i got nailed several times due to that since I have a tendency to wait way too long.  Extremely frustrating;  that "fight" is horrible as small mario.  I decided to go back and learn 8-1 and 8-2 well enough that I could keep fire flower the whole time rather than fighting with hammer bros in 8-3 for it.  I have to proceed a bit slower through those stages (mainly 8-2) but oh well.  Took me for 4-5 game overs to get it down but ended beating it with no deaths (with warps) tonight.  I'm happy with that since I haven't really played it in almost 20 (edit) years (usually went to mario 2 or mario 3 for my NES mario fix). Surprised i remember where the warps were (well I also warped to stage 5 my first time as well) and also the path through 8-4.

are most people staying friday night, saturday night, sunday night? 



Erich, djinn, and Maiko: I have a room for friday/saturday/sunday nights. If you need somewhere you are welcome to stay with the NJ crew, we will have room most likely


Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Magfest XIII being Friday-Monday was a one-time thing.  (had to do with Magfest not having a long term contract and having to plan around other events).


Magfest XIV is Feb 18 to Feb 21 which is Thu-Sun.    


I think most will have rooms for Thurs, Fri, Sat nights   or Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat nights
