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!

We should have a PAX parade...

Way too late for this year... and probably a logistics nightmare & unrealistic to implement any year... but with all these pre-pax breakfasts, meets, walks, electric slide contests... ok I made that one up but you get the point... we might as well just get a permit & have a bigass parade to kick off PAX... it'd be more interesting than sitting in line anyway.

We got companies with mascots & characters already showing up... we got people who dress up, and everyone else could just march along or watch... could even have one of the bands perform on a float *(back of a pickup truck)

... also... Seafair Pirates... cuz PAX is near Seafair & pirates are cool.

Someone could make big Gabe & Tycho foam suits & they could be the grandmarshalls on the final float... it'd be even more fun if Jerry & Mike had to be in the suits.

I'm only 48.6% serious of course cuz it all sounds rather complicated... but feel free to input awesome float ideas

    I'll just say this. I would NOT want to be the person in charge of this. Nor would I envy them in any way, shape, or form.

    Doesn't the CCST count as a parade?

    I *think* that's what I meant to say...

    This somehow captures my imagination and yet at the same time like TrainwreckX the idea of executing it frightens the shit out of me.

    ElectricTurtle, always agreeing with me. That's it, I guess I have to go to the Pre-PAX dinner now. I went last year cause I liked the restaurant, but this year I just wasn't sure on the choice of venue (but agree that it makes things more manageable).

    SHAZZBOT! Back on topic:

    Err, is there enough content to make a parade? Would it be a PA-only parade or a gaming parade?

    I can't help but think that this may end up being gayer than the gay pride parade itself.

    And when I say gay... I really mean "gay"... not lame.

    Just thought I'd clarify. You never know these days

    PAX Parade = the ungodly lineup on opening morning.

    [Enforcers] are the fucking best.
