AVC Online Announces The 2012 Video Game Summit


Chicago, IL 9:15 PM 12/19/2011 Remember how much fun you used to have
playing Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer? Well,
you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again at
the Video Game Summit, Chicago 's premier video game trade show. In
fact, dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games,
controllers,systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade
for the games you have held onto since you were a kid. Who knows, you
might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust
in your attic.

"Retrogaming," the playing and collecting of classic video and computer
games, is more popular than ever.
In fact, a dedicated group of programmers still issues new games for
game systems,such as the Atari 2600, last seen in retail stores over
fifteen years ago. The Video Game Summit, now in its ninth year,
brings together classic and modern generation gamers from all over the
country to swap stories, games and to compete in sanctioned tournaments
and raffles.
The event is open to the public and people of all ages with an interest in
video games or computers are encouraged to attend. According to the
event's organizer, Dan Iacovelli, "we plan to have many retro and modern
game consoles for play”.

The date of the show will be July 14th, 2012 from 11am to 6pm at The
Heron Point Convention Center,665 West North Avenue , Lombard,IL
(adjacent from the Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel)
Admission is $5.00 per person (children 12 and under with an Adult
are Free) and booths are $30.00 (a booth consist of three
2 x 5 tables 2 side tables and one front table).

I'm not sure it's possible to be respectable to a person, but I bet people could try to be respectful. OK, so we can't make offensive or vulgar remarks, but I see nothing about video chatting in the nude with offensive and vulgar words written on our bodies with lipstick.

I'll be doing exactly what everybody else will be doing and watching something else like Celebrity Nipple Piercing on the Discovery channel. :D

Effective 8/1/2012 the ebook versions of the programs will no longer be free
the reason behind this is because I saw howmany people d/l the ebook and
rather then not getting any profit for the sale I figured to start charging for it
and get a small proffit from it.
ebook prices:
2011 program: 1.77
the current year(2012):1.66
these are basically the prices it cost me
to do copies for the show (I will only get about 60 or 70 cents profit from the sale
due to base price(.99) and 10% for lulu.com cut, still it's good)
