That’s just a short list of people and events confirmed for the weekend. Team Max@Play is hoping to see the return of “Tea Time with Deadpool” This particular event was a 21+ evening event but it was absolutely hilarious. The games being unveiled by the indie developers at Ohayocon will be featured in its own room but definitely reveal some amazing jewels.
