NPCC @ Classic Game Fest – Mega Ran / 1-UP new videos and more!

This is going to be a slightly shorter post but I did want to let everyone know how awesome Classic Game Fest (CGF) 2016 was!

So if you hadn’t noticed from our flood of insta-book posts (clever huh >.>) the NPC Collective had quite an eventful weekend at Classic Game Fest which is one of the most fun and energetic retro gaming festivals we get to go to. Fun fact is members of the NPCC have been performing at Classic Game Fest going back to the year we officially became the NPCC! If you enjoy classic gaming and artists who specialize in the nostalgic feels… then you’ve probably found your next stop. CGF expanded this year to the larger space of the Palmer Events Center in Austin with even more gaming tournaments, free play arcade machines and awesome vendors! I even delayed our departure on Friday night so I could watch the Super Smash Brothers tournament :3

Other things that keep me coming back?

  1. They keep accepting my submission (hah)
  2. David is just plain awesome (if you don’t know David, go meet him at once)
  3. It has the size of a large fest, but the environment of a friendly get together
  4. I’ve met some amazing people who I get to see every year because of this event

While we spent most of our time manning the booths during festival hours, I did get to do quite a few fun things on and off stage including:

Rocking out with 1-UP Force


Hang with my homies and King DeDeDe and Misty

And obviously what we referenced in the title of the article…

WE MADE MUSIC VIDEOS!!!

One of the perks of actually remembering your camera is you can take some photos and shoot videos! Mega Ran was able to capture some footage for his Pokemon Go song and I was also able to knock out some footage for my 8 Bit Hero song! In case you’re wondering why the background looks similar in them… IT’S BECAUSE IT IS THE SAME PLACE!!! *Evil Laugh*

Embedded below! Go like, comment and share!! <3

1-UP (AKA Creative Mind Frame) – 8 Bit Hero

Anyway, as I promised I’ll keep this one short winded but if you check out this Facebook Album you can find some photos from the event! Doug Funnie, TekForce, Amarmis, Descendents Of Erdrick and tons more!

Also don’t forget to get all of the quickest updates from the NPC Collective Facebook Page!

Here’s to a great CGF and here’s to hopefully returning next year!!

D&D Sluggers Getting Strange

You may remember D&D Sluggers from the mega hit single, “Infinite Lives” from Mega Ran ( RNDM ).

Meet Our Newest NPC: Godswill Ugwa!

NEW PARTY MEMBER!

In addition to having the dopest name ever, Godswill might also have the dopest job. When he’s not making things go on the social media side at FUNimation, he’s creating, learning languages, and most importantly, nerding out. Get to know G in this NPC Q&A!

1. What are you nerding out on currently?

Currently nerding out on Fire Emblem (GBA game), Danganropan 1, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, and One Piece

2. What’s your most recent games played?

Uncharted 3, Fire Emblem, and Danganropan 1

3. What music is on your playlist?

The current rotation is World’s End Rhapsody (Nujabes), War (Hypnotic Brass Ensemble), Little Weapon and Gold Watch (Lupe Fiasco), Human After All (Daft Punk), Grasslands (Ramzoid), Not Going Back (Childish Gambino), What A Year (Big Sean), and Kimi to iu Hana (Asian Kung-Fu Generation).

4. What do you do in your downtime?

Downtime? What’s that? Haha I’m working on my breakdancing when I get a chance, watching anime, reading internet articles, practicing Japanese or Spanish, and doing yoga entirely past my bedtime.

5. Any past/present involvement in community activities you’d like to speak about?

I don’t participate as much as I’d like to but I’m working with a friend in feeding the homeless of Dallas once a month and I occasionally work with a group called “Islamic Relief” in disaster preparation and assessment.

6. What are you trying to learn to do right now?

Spanish and Japanese languages, dancing, martial arts (Shotokan Karate and boxing), photoshop, photography, and how to get to things on time

7. What should Nerdy People of Color get out of our website and collective?

I believe we should have a hub and a forum to speak on. Also to be connected with big-time nerds of color would be sick.

8. Favorites:

Favorite movie? Phew my favorites have been Jurassic Park, Pulp Fiction, The Avengers 1, and The Raid: Redemption.

Favorite Food? That’s hard too. I really enjoy Asian foods like sushi, Korean BBQ, and Indian curries (not spicy). Also can’t beat my Nigerian mother’s cooking of rice and stew with fried plantains.

Favorite website? Well I can’t hide my addiction to Facebook (more ashamed than proud). I do dig Gamefaqs though as I always check out their polls and Top 10s. Also YouTube has me in awe still.

9. What’s upcoming for you?

What’s upcoming for me? Well I’m hoping to be bigger within Funimation for sure! Also hoping to get a girlfriend one of these days haha!

10. Talk about a person or event who made you who you are today.

I gotta thank my big bro Caleb who I met as I entered college. He was the first cool black nerd who had such an aura that inspired me. Hell he brought me into the school and kept me there and then motivated me to create the things and friendships that brought me to where I am now!

11. When did you realize you were a nerd, and when did you become okay with who you were?

I think I really realized it in 9th grade. That was when I first realized I scared people with my geeking out of G4TV and video games. Also that was when I first saw anime for anime’s sake rather than an interesting cartoon. I think I became really cool with it once I entered college.
