Sometimes it's hard to be a gamer on the road
This is the time of year when fans of all stripes travel to their favorite meccas to mingle with like-minded individuals, view and sometimes purchase some small sampling of that which made them fans in the first place.
The San Diego Comic-con is in full swing and it's no surprise that folks are looking to see what's happening next to their favorite characters, not only in print, but on the large screen. You'd have to be living under a rock to not notice how big an influence cartoons and comics have had on hollywood. And the toy industry is making inroads as well, as seen by last year's successful Transformers movie and the upcoming GI Joe film.
My favorite show is Gencon, where the largest collection of gaming geeks converge to talk, play, buy, play and play more games. Gencon has been going through some changes lately, but it's still going on in Indiana. Rumor has it that it might be moving back to it's original home in Wisconsin. I won't be able to get away to this year's show, but I'm hoping to visit next year.
So that's some of the things you might be missing this summer. What are you up to?
