    Oh, we'll see about that. I can be... persuasive.

    This is my first time to PAX. Have a few friends who've said they'll cheer for me. Nervous about what games we'll have to play, I'm not very good at most standard competitive game modes.

    Don't worry mate it's all about the experience.

    For sure, winning would be cool and all, but PAX last year was stupidly fun, and getting to do this as well is just going to make it freaking epic.
    Honestly I'm not worried if I get knocked out in the first round or make it to the final game, this is going to be a pretty awesome experience.

    Don't get me wrong, i'm going to give it my all, but I'm not going to be crushed when I get knocked out.

    Fingers crossed for something like sing star or pin ball. :)

    Considering that at past omegathons, they've done Operation, Karaoke and kerplunk, I'd say anything's on the table.

    Same. I'm not going to stress or anything, just going to have as much fun as possible. If I wasn't excited for Pax already, now I definitely am :)

    So what is everyone's favorite thing to do at PAX?

  • SpiceSpice Content Sponge Registered User regular
    My first PAX I tried to see everything and quickly got overwhelmed. Also I was foiled by the queues.
    Last year with the new venue I was able to get into every panel I wanted and had a lot better time.
    For me personally, the panels and gaming/tabletop area are the best.

    My friends are excited that they get some priority entry and that they can (likely) see me embarrass myself in front of people.

    Wait wait wait, what's this about priority entry?

    For Omegathon stuff only.

    I'm pumped for PAX. It's the second time I've attended on my own and it doesn't bother me at all. I always just end up making friends with the people around me in the line.

    Panels & cosplay :) There were so many awesome cosplays last year and I can't wait to see what people do this year.

    Well, I figured the final round could be Mario Maker since it comes out just before PAX but it seems Prime beat us to it.
    No idea what OmegaAUS could be now.

  • psychoticdaypsychoticday Registered User regular
    Sent in my forms and photo! Ready to play!

    Just to clarify - all Omeganauts will get priority entry to all Omegathon rounds (as well as your plus 1's), regardless of whether they've been knocked out or not.

    I like drinking, I like gaming, so I created the Mana Bar

    My girlfriend's into photography and I'm studying design. I might have gone overboard on the photo...

    Anyone had confirmation the email went through?

  • KramburgerKramburger Registered User regular
    I submitted mine fairly early and haven't heard back yet. They'll probably get in contact closer to the date.

    Not until I emailed back and asked for it, so you're probably all good :)

    Any new OMGs who didn't get a message from me already... message me. because reasons. or bother your fellow OMGs that have already gotten a message from me, and ask them what it says. that'd prolly work too.

    Out of curiosity, where we getting an email back confirming that someone received that questionnaire and picture etc?

    Just breathe and focus on obsessively checking the PAX AUS site to see if the schedule's been posted yet.

    @Kylar lack of confirmation is normal, don't worry.

    Apparently the schedule is available in the app but not online yet. Time to panic.
