I've got such mixed emotions about it. I mean, i think i had the most fun playing games with random strangers who actually KNEW what they were doing...even i got my ass kicked again, and again, and again. :P the exhibition room was awesome, I'm thinking about getting and xbox just for fable. But man, the console room, though filled with fun, had that crazy funk that just sort of...sank into your skin if you didn't shower soon. Does it really take that much time to put on some deodarant? :roll: The people there were great, i got to meet a bunch of great people, even in the line when i got tired of sitting around and managed to meet some cosplayers who were from Vancouver as well. I just wish it was actually in Seatle, i mean, i just left the place when things slowed down and explored the town and... i've had more interesting things come out of my ass than Belleview.

    Well, I've been to some more business-related stuff, including ComDex, and this was way better.

    Like they said, this was the event that you always wished someone would do, but hasn't happened till now.

    Bellevue is fine, all I really cared about was the hotel and the con.

    It was my first, but not my last. I hope to attend next year and as soon as I am able to get a job, I will be attending other cons.

    It was my first con as well. I loved every second of it, I met alot of the fun guys from the boards, and basically got to be among exactly the kind of people I would want to be among during this kind of event. Thanks Gabe and Tycho!

    I was going to say it was my first convention, but I remembered that I went to GameStorm here in Portland. Grrr.

    I was at the NecrowombiCon last year (that's when it was my first.) I fondly remember it because I got to play Mario Golf before it's release date and we talked a lot with Gabe and Tycho. This year it was a lot bigger and we only briefly saw them.

    It was my first huge convention though.

    1st here too. But think of next year its gonna be Bitchin. Once Gabe and Tycho fix what happened this year, Bigger building=less lines, I think most poeple were surprised to see that many people come. But I think it was GREAT anyways. First time ive gotten my ass kicked so much on games.

    Thanks again to Gabe, Tycho, Robert, Everyone that helped bring all of it together and running as smoothly as possible. GREAT JOB!!
