Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

May 2, 2011 -

Three men attending Shinboku-con 2011 in Westlake, Ohio this weekend ended their attendance to the three-day anime/video game/culture event by going to jail. Police arrested two attendees of the anime and video game conference at about 7:15 p.m. on April 30. The two men, a 27-year-old Cleveland resident and a 21-year-old Canal Fulton man, got into an argument over how the younger gentleman was playing an undisclosed video game. The younger man was so agitated by the critique that he punched the other man in the mouth an hour after the initial argument. Police arrested the younger man for assault. The older man, proving just how stupid he is, decided to spit on an officer. Both men were released later that evening.

On the same day police returned to the Holiday Inn where the event was being held for another call. At around 8 p.m. an 18-year-old Lorain man started damaging hotel property. Coincidently, the suspect turned out to be the brother of the 27-year-old Cleveland man who was arrested earlier in the evening for spitting on an officer. The 18-year-old had left the hotel when police arrived, but was arrested later in the parking lot of the nearby Board of Education. He and a friend were waiting there while another 22-year-old man checked to see what happened to his brother. Officers arrested the 18-year-old for criminal damaging and underage consumption of alcohol. They also arrested the 18-year-old friend for underage consumption. Both were later released.

Maybe a few less morons will attend next year’s Shinboku-con. In case you did not know, Shinboku-con is an annual event that features video games, anime, card and board games, tournaments, cosplay, exhibitors, and more.

Anime Central in Chicago is one of the largest conventions in the midwest. The festivities technically start on Friday, but over the past few years, it's been getting so big that the accidents and incidents have been starting Thursday night and going constantly the whole weekend through.

With the frequency of conventions of all kind, you need a network of people just to keep up with all of the crazy crap that happened over somes tupid stuff that ended with some people getting dragged away in cuffs or on a stretcher.

Hell, I once went to a con where a girl in the room next to me got alcohol poisoning. Turns out she was underaged and the con didn't come back for another year at that hotel.

Oh, it could be worse. You could live in the same state as Jack Thompson. *sigh*

You mean the man who would have these events banned throughout the country by selling the BS that things like these are normal at such events which is why they ever hire security?

Yes. In my state. Disbarred mind you, but still in my state. Can anyone's state beat that? ;)

MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
Sleaker@MP - devolver Digital issued a twitter statement saying they would replace the NISA pledge.07/29/2014 - 10:57am
E. Zachary KnightIs that a discussion about RIAA member music labels?07/29/2014 - 10:48am

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilsonis it any good?07/28/2014 - 9:36pm
Papa Midnight"Love Child" on HBO -- anyone else watching this?07/28/2014 - 9:27pm
MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
