Spring is here and so is the Midwest Gaming Classic! Located in Brookfield Wisconsin just outside of Milwaukee, the Midwest Gaming Classic (MGC) is an all encompassing video game enthusiast event catering to you, the gamer. Hundreds of Arcade Machines/Pinballs set to freeplay, nearly every console in existence on display (even the SNES Playstation!), industry speakers, podcasts, indie developers, videogame-centric bands, and a large Vending area are what is available for your pleasure all weekend, with the Hotel packed to the Brim with very nook and cranny devoted to Video Games. The best part? Bitbuilt will be there, as part of the Benheck Experience!
Since 2004, the Midwest Gaming Classic has evolved from tiny school basement into one of the premier video game events in the Midwest. As part to cater to different genres and subspaces of gaming, event space was given to Grandfather of Modding Ben Heckendorn, who incidentally named the show, and his forum members to show off portables, mods, and etc. Ben may have moved on from portablizing (he’ll still be at the show in the pinball area) but the space lives on! Bitbuilt memeber Doom has been moderating of the Event Space for the last few years and has continued the tradition of modding by adding Bitbuilt to the space.
What can you expect in our MGC Event Showcase? See all your favorite Bitbuilt Admins and Memebers (except Aurelio because he is a stinky pizza) NOAH. showing off the Gameboy Programmer. SHOCKSLAYER. Wii Trims, mods, pigs, and memes; and don’t forget to check out the fabled OMEGA TRIM. CHEESE. Playing Tetris. SHANK. Googly Eyes and Silly Scopes. DOOM. 3D prints. OLD BENHECK USERS. Waxing Poetic. BENHECK HIMSELF. A few builds and projects from The Ben Heck Show (and possibly Felix?). AND MANY MORE mods, portables, projects, and hacks from around the internet. Are you not entertained?
