LIVE: MAGWest 2 Panel – PA102

Another year, another MAGWest, the West Coast Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest) in Santa Clara, California (August 10-12, 2018). MAGWest brings it – with the bands, games and an awesome community of VGM fans!

This time we’re joined by a whole slew of performers from this year and last year as they talk about their childhood gaming experiences and some of the ways that gaming and VGM shaped their lives as performers.

The audio quality isn’t perfect (far from it – especially in the beginning. Sorry Michaela!) but everyone in the panel had a lot of fun!
