    I got 4 HMX tickets. You had to be refreshing the eventbrite page around 2 PM. If you waited for the tweet you didn't get any. Psyched I snagged em.

    I actually got tickets after seeing the tweet, broke the f5 and got extremely lucky

    Nice, you're one of the few! I was kicking myself I missed the party where they said farewell to Rockband with the American Pie closer but at least I won't miss this one. (the revival??)

    I actually have a video of this from when I was there.. it was awesome (that whole night was).. let me dig it out.

    Ahh.. here it is.. Forgive any quality issues.. I was trying to enjoy the moment and didn't really care too much about what I was recording :)

    For anyone who was able to buy Wave 1 tickets for the Harmonix party, were you able to buy more than one or is it one per costumer? I want my friend to be ready to buy his own in case I cant but for him.
    I was able to buy 2 tickets. I think 2 is the maximum.

    YOU BETTER MEET ME! We've known each other how long now? It's been since Major Nelson had an IRC room on his site. >.<

    Next wave of harmonix party tickets are going out today. Unfortunately I missed the livestream referenced in the tweet. Did anyone catch the time?

    They haven't streamed at all within the last day. I think they meant the livestream is happening today at 5PM.. not 100% sure though.

    Yep this was confirmed. Well damn. Twitch is blacklisted at my work. Guess I'll be hitting f5 for an hour T.T

    Start about 4:55, and f5 4tw. They popped about 30 sec to a minute before the tweet went out, last time.

    Harmonix was in less than a minute, seconds actually. People on twitch reported that they could buy 10! which is 10% of the 100 they put up.. when the limit was supposed to be 4. Kind of ridiculous.

    Not sure if that is true. I got stuck in waiting room from start and soon as it refreshed it sold out.

    Managed to score one for myself during my drive home, it wasn't easy lol. IMO, I doubt anyone really got 10, what the hell would they do with extras. But I'm sure there will be tons of stuff, last year I was able to do 2 parties a night. It does seem quieter this time around, but we still have time for more announcements.

    I think it's going to be a lot of last minute announcements. It is a bit quiet this year though.

    From twitch chat:
    Tix announced as up.
    15 second later they said "95/100 tix in carts"
    15 seconds later they said "sold out"

    The fact is with South being so close as well as GDC? right after the show, a lot of companies are just not going to put up the $$$$ needed for a big party like before. I still feel like we may see one or two pop up but this is definitely a sad party year.

    This being my first PAX experience I don't have much to compare it with, but with the pokecrawl, asus rog, and harmonix parties... I think i'm pretty well swamped with parties for my time there. I'm looking forward to it though!

    I can only speak to PAX East, but I imagine PAX in general is a lesson in right place, right time, with a mixture of luck and patience. Parties are no different. Fortunately, PAX is more than any one party and let's remember that you will never be able to do everything you want to do with your time in Boston next week. Yes, it sucks to miss out on something, but look at is as an opportunity to do something else, rather than sulking about not doing what you initially wanted.

    I feel like I'm missing something but is there anything else going on Saturday besides the canceled Sanshee party?

  • Options
    pilferkpilferk Master of Unlocking CTRegistered User regular
    The Harmonix party (now sold out) is also on Saturday. I suspect the Twitch party might be that night, too (but may be invite only). I also think there will be a couple of OTHER parties, announced either early next week OR on the show floor, itself. For example: Check out the Bioware room and ask around.

    Yeah, funny thing I went on break at work, glanced at my phone and seen a friend share it on Facebook. Quickly nabbed two. One for me and other for GF. When I got off work and got home it was sold out.
