Great job as always! Only thing I'll add is to follow PAX_lines on twitter. They update it through out the weekend, super helpful.

Bunch of Dads isn't in a streaming room, but it'll be recorded as Tested-branded podcast I'm sure.

Anything in the Albatross theater will be live streamed at twitch.tv/pax2 so that includes the live GB panel as well as my panel.

Please come to my panel. :)

Pro tip- get the app guidebook.com/app/PAXSouth/

It has a venue map, a map of the exhibitors, lists the panels, and you can add panels and events to your own schedule so you don't miss anything. Very handy.

Hi friends. This is Pat Baer!

First off, info on the rumble: there is no wrestling panel. Pope will not be in attendance, and Aaron didn't know until like 2 weeks ago that he was able to go. We got something good cooking for East, don't you worry.

Secondly, come to my panel duders! It's at 3:30pm Central on Friday! http://south.paxsite.com/schedule/panel/404ing-it-breaking-down-the-internet My guests are Jeff, Samantha Kalman, and Trin Garritano. We'll be livestreamed on twitch so you can watch it there if you're no gonna be there on Friday.

I hope to see some of you in two weeks!

Thanks guys. Sorry/not sorry about the twitter rants.

In the end, I'd like my friends to feel safe in their homes and able to write, design, critique, etc.

Some gamers want Zoe Quinn and Maya Kramer and Jenn Frank and Anita Sarkeesian and Phil Fish to stop making games, to stop writing about games and being critical of games. They treat those writer and devs as outsiders trying to take away their games, to ruin the industry. They see asking for diversity or making "not games" as an attack. Friends of mine have been harassed, threatened, and made to feel unsafe in public and private. Their home addresses have been given out to the masses, all with the end goal of forcing them out of the industry.

For simply having one of these people on my panel at PAX, my youtube account was flagged (since fixed) and numerous attempts have been made to access my email.

If gamers here feel like there IS corruption in games media and things need to change, I would humbly suggest using #gameethics to distance yourself from garbage people. Here's a fun link of some 4channers in IRC: https://storify.com/strictmachine/gameovergate These are the people who are behind Quinngate and Gamergate. Consider your company.

Final note: we lost Jenn Frank, and we're worse off now that we were a week ago.

Look, I'm going to win this. Obviously. I have nine years of comedy wrestling experience.

But you guys should recognize that Samantha Kalman came in second to Alex and is my only legit threat.

Hey duders!

I have been told that all Main Stage panels and all panels in Hedgehog will be live streamed. This includes the PAX Rumble and my 404ing It panel. I have not heard if they're doing any other rooms.

Also Brad Muir had to bail on my panel, which is a damn shame.

Over the 100th response, so waitlist me I guess?

Oh hi.

You could see Alex (and Eric Pope and Maya Kramer) on my panel:

Or go see Patrick and Zoe's panel. I am annoyed we're "competing".

Yeah, I'm in.

If it's a small group, a fun place like Barcade would be cool (either Brooklyn or the new one in Manhattan). If we're talking big numbers, we'll have to look for a large space where we can take over. A place like the Thirsty Fan in midtown never seems busy.
