January 3, 2013 - January 6, 2013
MAGFest 11 is the eleventh annual MAGFest convention, located at Gaylord National Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
MAGFest 11 was the first convention that Jon attended as a guest, and the first time a Game Grumps panel was held. Jon was also originally supposed to host a panel, but became sick and was unable to make it.
"Pro"Jared Knabenbauer (a friend of Jon and Arin who previously recorded the official videos for Arin's Q&A panels on previous conventions) recorded the Game Grumps panel for them. He said in his twitter account that it would be posted on the Game Grumps channel, but it has never been posted.
Arin hosted two Q&A panels, and co-hosted the Game Grumps panel with Jon. At these panels, many questions about Game Grumps were answered. At one moment, Jon called Barry to answer a fan's question; a moment which was described by Barry as "the most surreal experience of [his] life". The biggest news was that Banjo Kazooie would be continued, with special guest star Grant Kirkhope for the finale. Arin also revealed that more official Game Grumps Animated will soon be made, with an episode being in production since October. Arin announced that they will be doing a new show that is edited, but he does not go into any detail about it. The Game Grumps received many games from fans, as well as suggestions for games.
Arin also got sick towards the end of the con. This led the Game Grumps to be unable to record new episodes, temporarily slowing the upload rate of episodes from two-a-day to one-a-day.
