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!

    I got accepted as an Omeganaut. The experience was unreal. I picked up the phone and didn't say anything for 5 seconds. Sorry for making you wait Gabe.

    I just got off the phone with Gabe (Mike) I'm IN! I almost thought someone was messing with me.

    I may have just had a Nergasm...Just sayin.

    While I've not been chosen, this is a relief as I'll not be able to make it to East.

    Better luck for Prime. Grats to the Chosen.

    Only piece of advice. Up until the 4th round, you don't have to win, you just have to not lose. After 4th, you have to win.

    Holy shit! That is awesome! Congratulations!

    Haha I didn't even know this was happening! I got a call about three hours ago from an unknown number, but it just hung up as soon as it answered. Good thing I didn't know calls were going out today!

    I just looked it up, looks like it came from North Carolina. XD Doesn't even matter, I didn't check the box to be in the running to be an Omeganaut (I'm a terrible gamer, and I'm sure I'll be busy enough at PAX).

    Holy hell, I don't pay attention for five minutes and it is when the calls go out! Congratulations all, if you are of the twitter persuasion you could maybe post your twitter info, for those interested in following the deeper goings on of the Omeganauts

    Last year at East, you had to win every round. So, yeah. Best advice is to not suck.

    Learn to play Rock Band on Medium. Especially drums. Or since RB3 is out, the new guitar and keyboard. But if nothing else, learn drums.

    Unison bonus will win it.

    Indeed you did, and thank you for it! I've been verifying names on TdarTURbo's list and couldn't find a few, so I didn't put them there. Hopefully I will be able to keep up on it and update as information becomes available.

    ...why no I'm not obsessed about this, why do you ask?

    Yes. The number of rounds and when they happen varies from PAX to PAX, but they always are spread over all 3 days. Last year at PAX East there were four rounds, one directly after the keynote and first Q&A, two on day 2 and the final round on day 3.

    Uhhhh MagnifiedX isn't a handle on Twitter, and I'm not an omeganaut, so you might want to check the others in the list.

    Indeed, Father Christmas-like, I did indeed check the list. Twice! You'll find your name on neither of the lists in the original posts. Excellent catch though.

    EDIT: Apparently I needed to check a third time. NOW your name is on neither list.

    I'm wondering what games I should be playing to warm up. Do i hook up my Atari? Do i play some Mario Kart? maybe just break another controller with super meat boy? I'm sure the list will be pretty varied.

    I guess it's time to actually start playing Rock Band again. And maybe figure out what Minecraft is all about?

    Yeah...I'm going to have to look into Minecraft. As for RockBand stuff...Well, sorry in advance partner because on medium, depending on the song, I'll either do ok or awful. :P

    I don't suppose they have WoW on the list. That I can at least sorta play. lol

    There's no way that Minecraft could be a thing. How would you determine winners and losers? And it would take too long.

    As much as I love the idea of a Minecraft round, is there really a good way to make a 10-15 minute maximum game from it?
