PAX 2010, Day 3

We’ve had quite an adventure so far. You don’t want to just jump in at exciting finale; go read what came before: Day 0, Day 1, Day 2, Part 1, Day 2, Part 2. And now, the conclusion of PAX 2010.   Morning came to me at 8.30. We had nowhere particular to be. Our major goal for Sunday was a modest one: I had been around Rock Band 3 all weekend and had yet […]

PAX 2010: Day 2, Part 2

If you’re just tuning in, here’s what you missed so far: the pre-con Day 0, PAX begins in Day 1, and the first of our two-part look at Day 2. And now, Day 2 Continues.   After lunch we had a decision to make. We were incredibly interested in the live D&D session with Penny Arcade’s Gabe and Tycho, PvP’s Scott Kurtz, and Wil Wheaton. Checking Twitter however, I saw that we were not alone […]

PAX 2010: Day 2, Part 1

PAX has many days and many stories. Here’s our pre-con Day 0, and here’s all about Day 1. Please note that this post is hi-yuge, and quite pictoral.

I’d probably agree with you. I would definitely agree with you at […]

PAX 2010: Day 1

To read about our pre-PAX vacation beginnings, check out my Day 0 write-up.       The first day of PAX began later than expected, thanks to my seeming inability to know the difference between “AM” and “PM” on my phone’s alarm. Luckily my internal clock is a little more aware of its surroundings and jolted me wide awake at 6.30, only a half-hour later than planned. I’d also correctly gauged my level of disorganization […]

PAX 2010: Day 0

It’s that time of year. The time when summer dies and gamers live, flocking to Seattle in the tens of tens of thousands. This was our second PAX; the first was so awesome that we knew before it had even finished that we’d want to do it all over again. There’s been a lot said about the PAX experience. “Home” is how it’s mostly described, and it’s definitely a feeling that can’t be overstated. I’m […]
