Yes, I'm a whore this year - lots of cons.

I'll be there sporting my Evil Avatar shirt (do we have f13 shirts? I don't know).

Anyone else going? I'll be sharing a room with a lot of burly, drunk men.

It sounds like a room that will smell like beer and feet.

This is why I argue that every nerd convention should issue, along with the badge and program, a hotel-size bar of soap. For use during the event.

You know, E3 was already ruined by fanboy types.

You couldn't drag me into PAX. I'd have the will to fight after being roofied even.

It will be a beer feet room. I'm okay with that for three days, on cheap room and board.



I agree with you though, schild, but I've actually never been to a true like, nerd con. I want to go to one, just for the sight of it.

PAX is by far the only convention where GG employees fight over the "official slots", and make personal vacation/cost plans if they don't get on the official list.

Take that for what it's worth.

I could barely handle Otakon. That's like 5 times smaller than PA. E3 nearly killed me. Me going to PAX would be a bloodbath. It's not that I can't stand the mouthbreathing public, it's that I CAN'T STAND the mouth breathing public.

Not really a "people person", are you?  I would go if it was not on a diagonallly-opposite corner of the country.

I have been given permission to beat anyone who does not shower in the room I am staying in. THAT MAKES NON A HAPPY BOY.

Do you mean everyone at the hotel or just a select group, because that's a lot of people.

The group of people specifically who will be snoring in the same room as me.

However, I'll bring up the idea to the Marriott, maybe we can work out some deal.

Wait, what? Darkfall is here?

I'm at PAX right now. I want to go home, there is too much nerd and not enough good. BlizzCon was more entertaining then this. :(

Yeah, I heard that Uwe Boll was there, I was surprised he actually decided to show up.

Gabe has a pretty amusing update up right now about people trying to push their own cons at PAX.

What's even funnier is that the neckbeard fans they have doing security are called "enforcers".

Fucking ENFORCERS? Jesus Christ that's embarassing. I'm a pasty douchebag and that embarrasses me.

They've been called "Enforcers" for like three years. Find something from 2007 or maybe something worth caring about to get worked up about.

A lot of the enforcers were wearing kilts - specifically Utilikilts.

Well, if I gave a shit about PAX I would probably have known it earlier.

So, their neckbeard security force has had a really retarded name for 3 years?

Um, I don't give a shit about PAX in any way and knew about it. (I live on a different continent, so why would I care?)

And yes, they've had that name for years. However many that there have been PAXes. 3? 4? whatever. I just don't think it's worth giving any kind of a shit about.
