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!
So NERF has long been abandoned at the PAX event because... well because shooting NERF weapons in crowds of people who might not want to be hit by projectiles is just kinda rude... and I think there was some concern over injury or something.
So what about Laser Tag type gear? Do they even make that stuff anymore? I used to have some back in the 80's but it was pretty junky... and I know you can go to "Fun Zone" places to play it nowadays... but do they make any quality take-home Laser Tag gear anymore?
We'd want to get some official blessing that it was ok with the organizers because there are some conerns, mainly:
1. Playing with guns... even fake guns... might result in being shot by the police.
2. People might get carried away in shootouts and become unruley and annoying to those around them (diving into people to avoid shots, etc)
But if it was decided that we had the green light. Then all we'd have to do is organize online to make sure we're all buying the same set of gear and it was compatible with multiple players then at PAX we could hunt the ultimate predator: gamers.
