There’s been a fan event that has been sorely lacking in our industry. We have Penny Arcade expo which is a great general gaming event and there’s Comic-con, which covers a portion of the gaming industry. GenCon also has a side show for gaming, but nothing really focuses on the special needs of the MMO player. A lot of games hold their individual events, but just because a person plays one game doesn’t mean they wouldn’t like to socialize with others playing other games, right?
So I’m very excited to be involved in the Looking for Group Expo. It is going to be in June 2010 in Minneapolis. It will be a celebration of the MMO gamer and will be a lot of fun! We’ll have events that cater to pretty much every type of MMO gamer, whether you are an achiever, a socializer, an explorer or a killer, or a mix of all these types. (For the record, when I took the test, I got 0% killer. Crazy, huh?)
So stay tuned to this site for more news on this exciting event.
