    Was anyone else given requests from the Elizabeth?

    And did anyone manage to actually solve them and see what her 'rewards' were?

    My wife finished the request just before the final round of the Omegathon. Her reward was a handful of Jolly Ranchers. All in all it was completely awesome.

    Thanks so much! It's the first time I've made a dress (or worn that much pink) but I was pretty happy with how it turned out. (Especially the Fruit-fucker, heh)

    seriously, walking around in boy shorts and a string bikini top is NOT ok at a "family friendly event."

    The costumes of Twink and myself were so understated, only one person took our picture. :P

    Edit: Apparently, there's some photo lurking around that I can't seem to find for myself. For reference, we were dressed as Simon and Kaylee from Firefly/Serenity.

    I have to agree here. PAX isn't really advertised as a Family-Friendly event, to my knowledge.

    Yeah, PAX is pretty adult.

    Incidentally, this lady is actually part of the dev team for Sins of a Solar Empire. I know this because I bought it there ($30, special convention pricing!) and got her and the rest of the devs to sign my box.

    This, in my opinion, makes her waaaaay hotter as a booth babe.

    It was actually "twatvomit".

    But your point stands. PAX, and Penny Arcade in general, has traditionally been rated M.

    I guess you'd never take your kids to a beach or a public pool then, right? Might see a swimsuit top OH NOES.

    On an unrelated note, I did get a picture of Harley Quinn:

    Funny you mention that. She was really cool to talk to and very approachable. We spoke about her contacts etc. and she didn't seem ditsy or stupid at all.

    If I didn't already own Sins (fucking AWESOME game). I'd have purchased it. $30 is a steal.

    From the PAX FAQ:

    Are there age restrictions to PAX?
    Nope. But if you're under 13, please make sure your parents know where you are.


    Sounds family friendly to me since they don't even suggest that kids be accompanied.

    regardless, you would see more skin at the beach on a sunny day than you do at pax. Just because the majority of people are clothed doesn't mean the ones who are less dressed are being sexual.

    I'm sorry. I didn't take my kid to the beach. I took him to an indoor event... in SEATTLE where it was not bright and warm.

    I don't think it's unreasonable to expect people to be clothed.

    Logical failure. If notA does not mean B.

    In general, the PAX community isn't "Family Hostile", but considering the comic itself is often laden with curse words and the occasional tasteless joke ("labia", anyone?), you shouldn't really expect a Rated G experience.

    In your defence, this should be clearly defined for next year, yes. I must ask, though; how did you end up at a convention for a PG-13 (or worse) webcomic without expecting a PG-13 (or worse) crowd? I ask out of genuine curiousity.

    I saw no nipples at pax, though the keynote and subsequent panels were filled with curse words.

    I also saw very few kids under 14-15. And the ones I did see that were REALLY young were with parents. Maybe a handful at most.

    I think parents know what this is, and I think it's up to them to choose. If they are ok with it, that's their choice.

    Even last year the wang numbers were pretty high, along with the cursing. No booth babes last year, though there was cosplaying; it's going to happen at any convention that fans will dress up for the event, and we all know how most females are protrayed in media.

    All that said, I still would have taken my daughter on Sunday, had she not been sick. But I knew what I would have been walking her into.

    I suppose we should let the thread go back on topic now. ;-)

    Yeah... It is always worth researching the source material before planning a family trip. But really who assumes that the video game market at this point is anything close to family friendly? Within the first few rows of the exibition hall you had people gunning down zombies, gang warfare, a game where you chainsaw people in half amongst other things.

    Man there were several kicking outfits I totally missed. I never saw the Cortana/Chief- those are awesome. And the Katamari is so cute but I would fear the escalators greatly.

    What were the creepy women with the bandaged heads for? I was moving in a herd and couldn't quite see them or figure it out?
