Smile WA: Anyone going to PAX the next 3 days?

Hey guys:

Just wanted to see if anyone is going to PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) at the Meydenbauer Center Today, Tomorrow and/or Sunday?

I'll be there around 2PM today. Maybe I'll see some of you guys there? I have a 3-day pass.

Yes...I'm a gaming nerd.

Sweet! I might try to make it Sunday, but this weekend is action packed for me with WCSS8.

I love the cover picture on the Seattle times with the kid playing Virtual Boy. (I have one of those).

I went last year and had a blast. Met up with some friends from XBox Live and WoW, went out drinking/clubbing/etc. Was good times.

This year, unfortunately, I won't be able to go. Someone scheduled my wedding for this weekend. She'll pay for that!

you know, I'm a gaming nerd as well, but when I went last year... it was too much. I couldn't handle the dozens of sweaty overweight nerds waiting in line for DDR... the smell was amazing. The LAN room was even worse- think of a few hundred sweaty nerds cramped together in a large room, with all of their lighted ugly computer cases and fans going, heating the room up. Yes, I do too have a lighted computer and everything like that... but I also value personal hygeine. (at least more than most nerds. )

When they announced free bawls outside the LAN room, I was just astounded at how incredibly selfish everyone was in getting to the table where they were being handed out. You'd see a half dozen nerds walking away with as many bawls as they could handle, (no pun intended) and the rest of everyone mobbing and shoving for the front of the line (actually a few people did get trampled because of nerd greed, which surpasses most all other forms of greed I've ever seen)

Yes I love a good lan. Do I love 3,000 nerds congregated together in one building? Not so much.

Seriously, you win at life. You couldn't be more right about events like this. I've always wanted to go to PAX but never have because of experiences at previous nerd gatherings and things like what you posted that I've heard about PAX.

As a side note, DDR is FTL.

So I just came back from PAX today. I have never seen so many...nerds...in my LIFE. And the smell isn't pleasant either! People...don't you shower? Your B.O. is basking in the atmosphere! Agh...

And I was playing in the tourney...sorry I was Pwned. I hate being rushed. Didn't even get a chance to upgrade my hero and build more than one grunt. =P Ah well. Good game though.

I'll try not to disappoint you guys when I play in the Unreal and CS tourney. =P

See ya!

I'll be there the next two days. If you see a camera crew with EP or GameTap on the mic I'm close by. Come say hi. Ask for Ryan.
