MAGfest 2009

Well I am here at MAGFest now… so yeah… I guess anyone that came can try to find me an say hi.

Looks like my slot is at the same time as the Angry Videogame Nerd, so I guess I have to compete with him. Regardless, should be interesting, there’s arcade machines and beer here, what more do I need?


I did my panel, it went pretty well. Didn’t have to compete directly with Game Nerd which was cool. Lots of fun stories and truths you’ll never find on this site (such as “the Xbox 360 laptop originally was built to advertise our ghost town documentary trailer”) and for some reason I went WAY off topic with my Christian Bale Batman impressions. That’s what you get when you goto a Benheck panel / let your heart win.

Our Sonic Boom podcast panel is at 6 PM, so I hope to go even more off-topic during that.

The party on the top floor of the Hilton with the balcony was awesome, I could see all of DC which I know well from the 50 hours I spent playing Fallout 3. Haven’t seen any super-mutants yet…

  1. Ben… you don’t have to try to hide it anymore… we all figured out last week that you’re actually the Video Game Nerd.

    Its the only logical reason your podcasts always come out on the same day as his videos.


    p.s. I’m not actually insane. I promise.

  2. Sadly, do to my foot surgery I am unable to attend. this is also the reason I have not been on the forums lately.

  3. Dude, did you talk to the AVGN? He was probably very honored to have you in his presence.

  4. I did not see him. Our panels were near each other timewise so I didn’t get to see his.

    Also it would have been hard to recognize an angry video game nerd in a convention full of gaming nerds 🙂

  5. Ben, thought your panel at MAGFest was a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to hearing how the beer can crusher project comes out. 🙂

    p.s. Something to add to you bad movie list, if you haven’t seen it: Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter. Yes, it’s as bad as it sounds.
