It is just wishful thinking on my part really considering I live there. Although it would certainly be an excellent spot. There are plenty of places that could be rented out that would easily fit several thousand people (and won't rape your pocket too much). I guess it is a little early to be thinking about the next PAX though eh?
Well, I'll certainlly be at the next expo wherever it is. Sounds like you guys had a blast. Just makes me wish I could have made it even more. Bastards.... ^.^
I keep hearing complaints about the expo, but it was the first expo for goodness sake! From what I've heard it was well run for being their first expo.
So to Gabe, Tycho, and the rest of the pax staff.......Excellent Job. Kudos! Salud! So on and so forth...
:Sidenote: Did "The Matrix Online" really and truly suck? I expected it to, but I secretly hoped that I would be proved wrong.
pretty sure pax 2005 will be in seattle again.
i think they posted that...somewhere...
i love that 2 story escalator. anyone slide a penny down that thing?
I was hoping Sega would show something really innovative with it, something other MMORPGs haven't done yet, but... it just looks like another shitty MMO.
Now Guild Wars, on the other hand, god damn - I REALLY fucking wanted a t-shirt.
most of all, most of all
someone said true love was dead
but i'm bound to fall
bound to fall for you
oh what can i do
Heh, one of the WCST guys crashed Guild Wars. It was fucking helarious.
This occured to me as well. I mean, I thought the people living there were just cursed by wizards and unable to leave or something.

Guild Wars didn't intrest me much until I saw it at PAX. It's gorgeous and looks really fun. I didn't get to play it, but someone I was playing Civs with got to try it. They walked her through fighting some monsters, then they started a PvP match between her and some of the alpha testers. Her team won quite handily, and largely in part due to her. It was cool. Looks like PvP in that game may actually be a lot of fun.
i got a beta for JTL from the con...umm...
a beta for a game that is still in beta...this is going to hurt my head.
i realllllly wanted like...beta's for games coming next year...like middle earth online.
what the fuck just happened.
Why not have it in Atlanta? Downtown is a nice area for such a thing. Considering we already have expos out the ass here on a fairly regular basis. If Atl, Ga is good enough for the olympics (past of course) its good enough for pax. It doesn't have to be in Georgia though. I'd just like to see it move around the the US. It seems like using the same state, same hotel, same town every year would become kind of...boring eventually. Maybe it is just me though.
MO sounds pretty crappy indeed. So much for the game proving me wrong.
Like I said though, it was just wishful thinking. I know it'd never happen. I have family I'm overdue to visit in Tacoma, so maybe I can "kill two birds with one stone" so to speak...next pax.
