The PAX party hook-up?

edited August 2008 in PAX Archive
I've been going to PAX since the first year in my old hometown in Bellevue, though I missed 2006. Either way, after seeing how crazy PAX was last year I am defo looking forward to 2008. I've never had the opportunity to go to any of the infamous PAX parties. I would like to, though, since partying with a bunch of geeks from all over America in overstuffed hotel rooms sounds fun. Any tips on how to get the party hook-up as some one who isn't much of a forum-goer despite my PAX experience?

    post on the forums more!!!
    problem solved ^_^


    buttttttttt in all seriousness... go to all the events and talk to people.. i'm sure if you bring up a party or something a long those lines that you could get invited


    ps i didn't try doing that... i was just kind of relying on sealab that i was invited to ><
    pps it should work though ^_^

    I would suggest you watch out for the jackasses that enjoy giving out fake room #s that don't exist.

    what? who does that? the only reason to give a fake room number is if you're trying to get some free food at the hotel restaurant.

    Is this a private party or what? I'd love to attend some parties, as this is my first PAX.

    The beauty about PAX that I look forward to is that I can go to a party, get a drink, and talk about the intricacies of Team Fortress 2 and discuss Geometry Wars and it's relation to the Post-1945 Soviet economy with mature people.

    I need to find those parties. NEED.

    I want to discuss the fine points of DMing, mourn my lack of being able to play fighter games well (though I'm trying to learn to not -just- button mash), try and find a group to game with, and just have a blast in general. Is that so hard? :P

    I know the answer is "No." but I'm also afraid I won't meet that goal either.

    Comic Con was a general disappointment. I hope PAX alleviates that.

    I found it far easier to master the art of button mashing, so I can hold my own in any fighter casually without having to actually learn *that* fighter. :P

    It's Frozen "Yogurt". Delicious. Might be just in California and NY but the frozen yogurt thing seems to be proliferating quickly with many different "brands".

    I am SO in on that conversation, as long as you don't mind me blathering on about emotions in game and referencing God of War chains of Olympus and the Darkness as examples of narratives that nail a sense of loss while fully embracing the interactive nature of the media they are presented in.

    Yikes, I really need to stop overthinking this stuff...

    Holy crap, I didn't realize there were this many people that wanted to get in on a party and didn't know of one already... Ok I'll contact the guy running it and tell him to post details in this thread instead of having you all PM me.

    And no it isn't fake, leaf I have no reason why you would even suggest that.

    So heres the deal: I was told about PAX by some buddies who went last year and we all planned this trip like 8 months ago. but I just started getting into the forums about 6 weeks ago and this is def an awesome community. SMH at not checking it out sooner..

    But reading about the Sealab party and what happened was disappointing. I was really looking forward to such a party... So I think that this is a perfect thread...

    Suffice to say this is my only vacation I'll go on all year and I really want to party it up
