Babycastles Summit Updaaaate! Tix On Sale, List Of Fun Stuff Grows Bigger…

Wow – it looks like this will be quite the major event for those ironic hipster doofus types who think they’re the coolest beans on the block as well as actual gamers who want to show up and beat them (at a GAME, not in real life, silly!). Check out the huge list of speakers, bands and other fun, fun stuff (and don’t forget to purchase some tickets!) HERE.

Babycastles Summit Update: Tickets Now Available (You Should Go If You’re In the NYC Area!)

Well, THAT was fast! Tickets for the Babycastles Summit are NOW on sale here and yes, you should go if you’re in NYC and have even the faintest interest in gaming.  getting the chance to interact with one of the guys behind Katamari Damacy should be enough to get you out the door, but there will also be a few other fun things to see and do.

That is all. Off to change the banner for August, as I have no idea what to do, image wise. Too much stuff going on!

Of course, clicking on the link below will make your eyeballs happy, as you get a nicely animated official site to pore over with the same details below:
