So - tickets went on sale last week, melted their reservation system, went BACK on sale yesterday and they're already sold out of 3-day and Saturday passes.

I'll be going again this year and same deal applies - first round of beers on Saturday are on me.

Jesus Christ.  Is it that time again already?

If they're sold out of 3-day passes I'll probably skip it, not really worth making the flight up to Seattle if I'm not doing the whole show.  Bleh.

Yea, I missed the window. Even the one days for Saturday were already gone. Not quite sure what I'll do, since my buddy did get his 3 day. Certainly not going to pay some asshole the $300 they are asking for online already. Maybe the scalpers will come down closer to the event.

This would be me fifth consecutive, so I'll probably pay something stupid to make sure I don't miss it.

Pretty amazing, went from 22 days to sell out last year - to something like 6 hours this year.

What did you expect?  It's the People's/Gamer's E3.  It's good to see such things happening.

Now if we could only get them to happen in the SE United States.  South Florida isn't THAT bad  why so serious?

I've been to conventions down there - yes it is. Far too hot and muggy to allow that many nerds to converge.

Bought my 3-day for PAX-East this year from a website crew that were unloading them for cost in front of the building because they had gotten press credentials for a couple of their friends.  There are ways.

Well, I just won an ebay auction for tickets, because I really didn't feel like heading down there without tickets in my pocket.

At $170 for the weekend, I'm not sure whether to be excited or to feel like a chump.
Bah, its only money, and a five year streak was on the line.

I'm not going to go because of the cost, but if there's a meetup sometime, I'd be interested in joining.  I work about three blocks from the center, so it would be easy to meet.

I'm thinking meeting up for beers on the Saturday night again is a must.

We're up for that. Just confirmed that my overly expensive tickets are being sent out today, so I'll be there.

The Taphouse again? Unless Hawkbit has a better suggestion.

I forgot that's Bumbershoot, and we're planning on being there most of the day.  So I'm likely out for the meetup, sorry.  If we didn't have friends in town I'd just leave my wife and grab the monorail over, but I'd feel like a dick leaving visiting friends.

Just read through the Exhibitor list. No Bioware. I know they don't have anything big coming out this winter, but still - they've had a massive presence there every time I've gone.

Ok, ignore the last post that I don't think anyone read anyways. Seems they decided to have their own private panel room/theater, instead of being on the main floor.

I'll be there - meeting co-workers at the Taphouse Friday night, but I'll show up Saturday as well.

Probably won't have roaming on my phone, but I'll check here before I head out Saturday.

 Day one: 9:30 AM - playing Borderlands 2 half an hour before they let the rabble on to the show floor. Booya accessability badge +1. Oh, and heavily dropped hint that those attending thier Sunday panel will get the game. (which is Gold and due October).

11:10 AM - Bioware voice actor panel. I think I am even more in love with Jennifer Hale than before, and she only skyped in to the panel.  Plus Ali Hillis (Liara) spent the whole  panel flirting with her shamelessly. It was entertaining.

Swag lines were over 2 hours so I didn't even bother to see if they had any there, and I didn't even think to check the Riot booth.

Only thing I got was a free trial type thing to check the game out, no skins or anything. Oh and Murdoc, you didn't miss much with the swagbags. The highlight was a Magic starter deck with two uncommons in it.

Mind you, I avoided the LoL theatre/arena like the plague.
