The Con Artists

Who We Are & What We Do:

We are the Con Artists – a group of friends dedicated to bringing you the best and worst in anime and video games. For the last several years, we have been presenting at RPI’s annual convention, Genericon (R.I.P (╯︵╰,)). We have compiled our prior videos, reviews, and other ramblings here on the site and we hope that you will enjoy them. We are also producing a series of podcasts discussing animation, video games, pop-culture and so on. Welcome to the site!

Our History:

The Con Artists were first formed in 2008, though we would not take on that name until 2011. We began with Scott, Ian and Sam; three friends working with the staff of the 21st Genericon. Their premier panel featured rapid-fire take-downs of nearly a dozen terrible games, with attendees crammed into a tiny lecture hall in the far-flung reaches of the con space. Over the next several years, their roster evolved, adding Sushma in 2009, then Dan and Brendan in 2011.

As the team changed, so did our style of presentation. We slimmed down from three or more shows/games per person to one or two. This streamlined our workload, and gave us much more time to dig into both the good and bad material we wanted to show off. Our panels have become some of the most popular attractions at Genericon, and we look forward to providing fun and entertaining commentary for many years to come!
