Despite being a long-time gamer, this will be my first ever video game expo. I'm really looking forward to it. Who else is going?
I'm a local Bostonian, so if anyone has any questions about the city, feel free to ask!
I'm going. If you haven't yet, I advise everyone to check out Marino's Pax Guide. It's excellent.
Also, if anyone is planning on trying to get games of stuff set up at some point I am definitely interested. I'm not sure what the internet situation will be like so I don't know how easy that will be. But if I'd love to get involved with any games I can.
@Apocralyptic: I get the impression that a ton of people come from places other than Boston to see it. I'm coming from Pennyslvania and I have friends coming from Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Europe-land to see PAX. Most of the people on the official PAX forums seem to be driving or flying in from outside the area as well. So get ready, Boston, because WE'RE COMING TO TAKE OVER YOUR TOWN AND PILLAGE YOUR SPORTS TEAMS lol j/k.
I am super excited! It my girlfriends and mine first trip to PAX, and her first conference (I went to GDC a couple of times, but they are totally different things). We are flying out from Wisconsin. My lady has even started listening to the bomcast to prepare the awesomeness that will be Saturday Night....she loves it b.t.w.
For anyone who has been there before, how does the Giant Bomb meetup come into being? I am assuming it going to be some info released via Twitter...
@FonkyMucker: I'm also curious about a meet up. It would be great to meet some other GB folks in person.
I also heard about a Rock Band night? Although on this forum they mentioned it was "sold out"... I don't even know what or where it is, much less that there were tickets.
Rock Band Night tickets were here http://brattlefilm.org/2012/04/05/scott-pilgrim-vs-the-world-8/#rbn but it does look like they've sold out
Shit, I need to get a drinking hat then!
@Mahonay: @slowbird: I keep my drinking hat on my owl.
Hey guys, I think we should wear hard hats.
GET IT? IN CASE YOU BUMP YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU ARE DRUNK.
Seriously though, can't fucking wait to get there tomorrow. Hopefully I'll see some of you at the Rock Band night.
Roughly 22 hours until I arrive in Boston. I'm so friggin' excited for this - it's my first PAX and I've got three or four friends who live in Boston and I haven't seen in years. If you see a huge dude stalking Randy Pitchford or Ken Levine wearing some kind of Ohio State shirt it's me.
Also: I WILL DRINK ANY AND ALL OF YOU UNDER THE TABLE in a friendly competition.
Awesome there is another meetup going on this year, wished I went to last years. Thinking about bringing Cards Against Humanity with me, should be fun with some alcohol involved.
CAH is going to be there in the Kickstarter Games lounge, selling the regular packs and the expansion, as well as doing some fun shit apparently.
