Rhyphte Reviews: Game Over Richmond

Posted by

The MAGFest: Game Over series is a more intermittent offshoot of the greater MAGFest umbrella of events that fills some of the gaps between larger and more prominent episodes. Game Over: Richmond took place at Fallout in — well, Richmond — on Saturday, October 6th from 7pm to… Whenever it was we funneled out of there. I don’t remember. It was very late.

I’m in Hampton for work at the moment, so I figured I’d drop by and check it out. I wasn’t expecting much going in, but it was a total blast and I was inspired to share my experience when I saw that The ChipWIN Blog team was looking for new hands. Before we even got in the building, I noticed several #chipmoms there supporting their adult children, which was very sweet but also somewhat alarming, given the aura of the venue.

The event catered mostly to the local nerdcore scene, featuring popular “brand-name” regional acts and aspiring local artists in a (Bethesda) Fallout-themed barcade that moonlights as an exclusive BDSM club! CLEARLY the venue had a lot of different stuff going on, and it was extremely refreshing to see members of so many different subculture groups coming together to jam out to some retro tunes. If nothing else, it was (what I’d imagine is) a relatively unique opportunity to see a model cosplaying Bowsette rave-hopping her heart out to Castlevania remixes. So, I can cross that off my list of things that I didn’t know I needed to see.
