The 2016 Midwest Media Expo was a little smaller than anticipated with regard to square footage but made up with a passionate staff and enough Umbrella Corp soldiers to suppress any zombie outbreak that may have taken place. The game room, which is always a Max@Play favorite, was a very intimate arena of fighting, fast driving and music rhythm game beauty. Team Max@Play was introduced to a popular con game name as Jubeat where the player tapped lit up squares matching the pattern to a wide variety of music from overseas. Mini fighting tournaments took over half of the room while the remainder of the room was surrounded by fans of Dance Dance Revolution.
