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?
- They keep accepting my submission (hah)
- David is just plain awesome (if you don’t know David, go meet him at once)
- It has the size of a large fest, but the environment of a friendly get together
- 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
Mega Ran : Go Save The World
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!!
