Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Did anyone go to the PAX East alone earlier this year?

Did anyone go to the PAX East by themselves earlier this year?

I did. I begged any friend I could to come with me, but they all refused, balking the price of admission.

My sister, despite being a gamer, didn't want to come. But she promised me that she would tag along next year.

So, I went alone, and shot close to 321 pictures. I still haven't finished editing and tagging them with Lightroom yet, but I should be finished by next week. When I'm done, I'll share on Facebook, Flickr, and ImageShack.

It was still fun, though. Maybe next year, I'll go with friends... These conventions are far more fun with friends.

And yes, I know, I am over two months late.

    Depressing thread is depressing.

    I went alone, met up with loads of forumers, had tons of fun, and got to sleep on my own which was the best part.

    Yes but Goose you're here and on the PAX forum so you weren't alone. Also, don't we already have a more interesting PAX thread going?

    Yes, that's true, but I was fucking nervous as hell before it that going alone was going to ruin the experience for me, and it totally did not.

    I went "alone" in that I drove there alone and then when I got to the hotel I met up with people I knew and shared a room with them. And then we attended the convention together and ate meals and got drunk together.

    It was lonely.

    I can see how it would be lonely if your butt could only fit one of them at a time.

    I did this once

    It's kinda weird and I didn't much care for it

    But my girlfriend told me she goes to movies by herself all the time and really enjoys it. So I guess it depends on the person

    I felt creepy the one time I went to a movie alone.

    Like I wondered if people noticed and if they thought I was a creep and only went to look at the people watching the movie.

    I did, though.

    I go to movies alone a decent amount. Nothing wrong with it! The only times it feels a bit weird if it's a Pixar or maybe Dreamworks film 'cause of the kids that might be present.

    but then I met up with awesome dudes and we spent 15 hours in a car driving up to Seattle

    then we met up with even more awesome dudes and dudettes and we hung out and it was the best time ever

    What if you sit in between one couple and somehow manage to keep them from moving somewhere else?

    The ultimate third wheel, I would surmise.
