Rock River Valley Video Game Convention Returns with Special Guest Jon St. John

The Rock River Valley Video Game Convention, also known as R2V2, is coming back to the Lyran Society in Rockford, Illinois on Saturday, October 14th. This year's event is organized by The Gaming Outsider and promises to be even bigger and better than before.

Starting at 9 a.m. and running until 7 p.m., R2V2 will feature over 30 vendors selling a wide variety of video games. Attendees will have the opportunity to browse through the latest releases, retro classics, and hard-to-find collectibles. Additionally, the event will include a playable video game museum where visitors can enjoy some nostalgic gaming experiences.

One of the main highlights of the convention is the special guest appearance by Jon St. John. St. John is best known for his iconic role as the voice of Duke Nukem in the popular Duke Nukem video game series. He has also lent his voice to other well-known games such as World of Warcraft, Half-Life: Opposing Force, Sonic Adventure, and Star Trek: Online, among others. Fans will have a chance to meet him, get autographs, and interact with the man behind these beloved characters.

In addition to the exciting gaming experiences, attendees can also enjoy some delicious treats. Brent Murray, the owner and operator of Dairyhaus, will be on-site selling his famous ice cream. This is a perfect opportunity to indulge in some sweet treats while taking a break from gaming.

To attend R2V2, you can purchase tickets online or at the event itself. However, it is recommended to secure your tickets in advance to guarantee entry. This is a must-attend event for video game enthusiasts of all ages.
