Back from OZComicCon BrisbaneThe con was slow and really tiring. I don't think the attendance was the 30k people the organisers told us would come, but this being the first time OZComicCon comes to Brisbane and it being around father's day... I guess it wasn't too bad.I got to hang with Ry-Spirit and some other peeps who I hadn't seen in a long time. Also got to play a bit of Smash Bros 3DS at the Nintendo booth so that's always a plus. 8) Thanks to all who came to the Bulbagarden table and said hi!
