I want to take this opportunity to invite everyone within travelling distance of D.C. to register for and attend MAGFest VII. I have gone to MAGFest for the last three years, and fully intend to make the pilgrimage again this year.
MAGFest (formerly the “Mid-Atlantic Gaming Festival”; now the “Music and Gaming Festival”) is the greatest weekend of the year for anyone that enjoys video games. Unlike other video game conventions, MAGFest focuses on the gamer and the fun aspects of video games. You will find a handful of vendors at the festival, but the place is not overrun by them. For that matter, many of the vendors at the festival are incredibly unique, rather than the standard collection of guys selling really expensive imported video games (though, there are usually one or two of those, too).
