I'm stealing @marino 's format to describe what I can remember of PAX Prime 2014. We spent quite a lot of it doing the same stuff. You can find his here =]

"presented in (mostly) chronological order with little to no explanation or context:"

PAX as usual was a goddamn blast. Got to meet a ton of fantastic people inside and outside of the games industry and was a much needed burst of awesome following one of the worst months of online shittery in a long time. Thank you to everyone I met at the show new and old for making it an amazing experience! Also, it was super awesome to see so many of my shirts both old and new and secret being worn all about the show~ Unsure whether I'll make it out to East this next time around, but I'll definitely be at Prime again next year!

  • "I'm with the panel. They're all with me." showdown with enforcers

Very curious about the backstory/context to this one.

@alwaysbeclothing: Lol. Meeting up with @laika and @edgework was pretty cool. I started a list of people I was happy to meet and talk to but it was growing too long and starting to look too much like some kind of bragging list so I nixed it -_-;; Definitely met a ton of awesome ppl =]

I sorta know Max and he said I could bring some buddies to the CAH panel and skip the line. When we showed up, the line was already almost capped and the Enforcers were being ultra diligent in confirming that I was in fact, allowed to bring ppl in and skip the line. Like, way more so than any of the other panels. It all worked out in the end but it was sorta crazy.

Chun Li lunch show? What?

Also, sounds like you had a bad encounter with oysters!

PAX was indeed a blast, though. Like you, I'm looking forward to next year!

We were eating lunch on the steps outside and there was a really good Chun Li cosplayer doing some kind of photo shoot while we ate. And yea... Celine had some bad oysters or calamari or something from Elliot's Oyster House and got real sick =\

And Yup! 5/5 would do again!
