Anime Expo 2010: Fun With Mega 64!

I went to the awesomely hilarious Mega 64 panel at AX this year. If you don’t already know who or what Mega 64 is they do hilarious comedy skits based around video games. What some may not know though is that Mega 64 is actually an episodic show released only on DVD with their video games skits interwoven into the story of the show. They are hilarious and a must see if your any kind of video game fan. Their panels are also hilarious and a ton of fun! If they ever come to a con in your area and do a panel definitely check them out! Take a look at the video below that Mega 64 took of their panel at Anime Expo this year and also check out some pics of me with the Mega 64 crew and the hilarity that ensued after the panel!

One of the Mega 64 guys grabbed the camera and snapped these pics below.

Derrick also grabbed the camera and took a pic of me and everyone standing next to me at the time randomly.

Is it just me or is there something odd about this picture….
