The Halo man himself David Ellis
Ego Raptor from 'Gamegrumps' was totally a guy I bumped into.
I decided I had to finally meet the legend Johnny V, he did not disappoint
Mega 64 being a bunch of badasses as always
Alex was great, we had a talk about the ultimate warrior and childhood dreams being crushed!
Rorie was super nice, he actually flagged me down to talk all thing Giantbomb and to just say hi!
Patric was great, it was amazing to see the crowd around him about 10 times the size of the one at PAX prime 2011, I had to tell him that I loved his passion for games, writing and thank him for making me look at games differently.
I approached Brad to say hello, unfortunately he was out for blood, he challenged me to a game of fisticuffs
Will was one of the most down to earth guys I have ever met, super nice, great to talk to, we got to talk for about 20 minutes about all things Whiskey Media, Ryan, and VIDEOGAMES!
The serious pose, because we are badass like that.
Me and the #1 videogamesman on the Internet, Jeff Gerstmann
Drew and Vinny, I think the picture says it all, i was very happy here
Oh and look who I ran into at the bar.

So PAX was awesome this year! I saw some great games, cool sights, and most of all met some awesome people along the way!

So I figured that I'd share some of the awesome pictures I got with various videogameologists.

This was a great year to go to PAX, I met so many people, played so many games, the Giantbomb panel was amazing, and I even got to say hi to a bunch of community members. Thanks to any of those I met for being pretty awesome, and not being freaked out by my pointing at you.

That Drew/Vinny sandwich may be the best thing ever.

This is the type of shit that makes PAX so amazing. I'll just say I did the next best thing but seeing people haul back pictures and stories is the coolest. Makes me super jealous.

It's really worth the visit if you're into this stuff, it is amazing running into these people and actually stopping and having a talk with them.

#12 Posted by ThunderSlash (1967 posts) -

Nice! Did you challenge Rorie to a game? I heard he was running around looking for fights.

#13 Posted by big_jon (5789 posts) -

@ThunderSlash He did not challenge me, but I did hear he was doing that.

Damn you and your handsome frame!

I mean, er, cool pics. And yes, that is the only Will Smith that matters in my book.

Who did you run into? He looks like Patrick and Jeff had a kid, and then that kid traveled back in time to prevent Brad from killing Jeff.

Is it wrong that I want to mustard gas everyone who has fun at these things, because I'll never get to go myself?

It's wrong, and I know it is.

I have absolutely no mustard gas though, so maybe I'll just blow some pepper at all of you a little bit.

Thanks for the gun show though, @big_jon, goddamn. Great snaps and chats with all these dope duders.

#24 Posted by big_jon (5789 posts) -

@fattony12000: Hahaha, thanks man.

Maybe just put a fire cracker into a jar of mustard.

#25 Posted by beepmachine (617 posts) -

Great pics! I can't even handle the power of the GUNS in the one with you, Vinny, and Drew. Lock up your wives everybody.

A handful of French bangers in a jar of peanut butter and another handful in a jar of Nutella sounds delicious.

@beepmachine: Yeah dude, it was for sure, I recommend it to anyone who is as big of a nerd as me.

@chocolaterhinovampire: Hahaha, yeah, I love that picture, I got one with Vinny 2 years ago too in the same vain, Vinny is just a great guy for taking pictures with, so is Drew!
