Reminder: You should join us live at Midwest Gaming Classic
Yes, that's right: Next weekend (April 8, to be precise) Bob and I will be setting up camp at Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee to present our first live Retronauts panel of the year. Last year, we waxed eloquent about the Sega Master System with the help of some SEGA experts; this time around, we've rounded up two local Splatterhouse experts in order to talk about, yes, Splatterhouse. Caitlin Oliver and Kevin Bunch will be joining us to discuss the history of the series, its sequels and offshoots, and hopefully explain what allure the franchise possesses to entice them to go toe-to-toe to defend the arcade game's all-time high-score record.
The talk will take place next Saturday at 3 p.m. And we're hoping to host a meet-up later in the evening at the event's bar, so please join us for that! If it happens!
On the much less expert side of things, I'll also be taking the dilettante approach to Splatterhouse in a Gintendo stream tomorrow afternoon. (It's Friday, it's OK to start up with the gin a little early.) Specifically, I'll be trying out Splatterhouse 2 for Genesis, because I need to stream more frequently from SEGA systems, and then moving along to the copy of Splatterhouse Wanpaku Graffiti I picked up during my last trip to Japan. I can't promise I will play well, but at least I will make groaner puns on the fly and talk about alcohol...?
