I love retro videogames. I’m also (relatively) close to Pittsburgh. There’s a convention coming up that I really want to attend at the end of this month. It’s the Pittsburgh Retro Gaming Convention, in it’s 2nd year of operation. The event will take place one day only on January 23rd, 2016 from 10am-3pm at the XTAZA Nightclub on 1620 Smallman St. Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Tickets are just $15 and all profits go to the Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital.

Check out for more info.

They have cosplay and everything 🙂 — Of course with only 2 weeks until the event, not much time to make a costume this year haha.

I don’t really know how “retro” their games are, given their tournaments include super smash bros melee and street fighter iv – both from around 2010 (only about 5 years old lol)

But maybe there will be some other stuff too 🙂 Not a lot of info on their site.

But if you’re in the pittsburgh area you should totally check it out – cuz it sounds fun and is for a great cause.
