    Quoted from mikepin:

    And as far as the boutique games i believe their website says they are having some issues with their system that is what i was told

    Nobody is having issues with their "control systems" that I am aware of. This is pretty misleading Mike.

    Quoted from Dmod:

    Mike, stay calm. Thank vendors, volunteers, and people who bring games for continuing to support your show. This is the main thing that's been missing from Expo relative to other shows.
    If a vendor isn't in their booth the entire time or close early, it's not going to affect attendance next year. If they stop coming (and it seems a lot have), it might.

    I highly agree with this. This is the right thing to do, but I do not see Mike making the effort to do so. He is very harsh to people that do not deserve it. This happens over and over again. He does not look like he will change his ways. If he wants Expo to survive, he needs to hand it over to his son Lonnie, who actually is appreciative of the people that make the show function. This includes vendors, volunteers, game bringers, attendees, etc.

    The lies also need to stop Mike. Multimorphic and FAST pinball will not be attending this year not due to "control system" issues like you made up. That is highly disrespectful and slanderous.

    I would love for Expo to be one of the great shows again like it was, but changes need to happen. Mike, show some damn respect and quit being ungrateful.

    Quoted from dirtbag66:

    Apollo 13 was turned on for like 30 seconds.
    I really wanted to play that one.
    Next year I'm going to bring an empty refrigerator box and paint "Total Nuclear Annihilation" on it. Oh, wait. Someone already did that.

    Awe, that's not nice. Why so mean this morning?

    Had a great time at expo yesterday talking with all of you. Thank you for coming out and playing TNA. Also, hats off to Eric! POTC looks amazing and I think he did an amazing job with it.

    Quoted from dirtbag66:

    Just my opinion. I truly don't see the big deal with that game. Compared to other games like Houdini and the new Pirates game it's, well, another Spooky machine.

    All good. I understand if you do not like it, but why insult something I have worked so hard on like that? You should have stopped back there and talked with me about the game. I love talking to people about it and what I was going for with the game.

    Quoted from bangerjay:

    Why don't you talk to scott directly instead of skulking around these shows only to get back home and start trolling?

    Agreed completely. There is no way that he would say this to me in real life. He is just hiding behind his keyboard. But seriously, I welcome you to come talk to me at the next show dirtbag66.

    Quoted from dirtbag66:

    Yikes! Talk about your mob mentality around these parts.
    Say something positive about TNA/Spooky, you'll fit in just fine.
    Be the least bit critical of TNA/Spooky, watch out for the torches and pitchforks!

    I bet you cannot beat me at a dollar game on TNA. In fact I will throw down 10 bucks that you cannot beat me at it. Let's do this!
