    Why wouldn't Bungie be there? They were there last year, and I wasn't there the year before but I believe they've been at PAX for a while now, Also, they're local...
    But I am surprised they're doing anything at the MS booth when they have their own...

    In one of Bungie's weekly updates they said they would be showing off ODST in the Microsoft booth.

    Plus ODST will feature in Round 3 of Omegathon. I for one am hoping I make it that far to get a chance to play it.

    Yeah they will be there. They announced it in their weekly update either from Comic Con or the week after. They said they didn't have their own booth this year but they would be showing ODST at Microsoft's booth. I found the information weird as well. Just glad they will be there

    Sweet! Good luck!

    On the Exhibit Hall floor, you'll most likely find me offering sexual favors to various staff members at the BioWare and Harmonix booths.

    Other than those two, I'll just be floating around and seeing what I can see. I like going in with an open mind to cons.

    Last year was my first year and I found the retro gaming area about 30 minutes before closing time on Sunday. I was so sad but vowed that this year I would revisit some fond memories!

    meh, I might pay a visit there, but I'd rather see something new I haven't seen yet.

    On my list:
    - Tabletop
    - Bungie (MS booth)
    - ubisoft
    - bioware
    - valve
    - blizzard (along with every korean person/starcraft lover there, hehe, sorry)

    not sure what else there is to see... although I'm sure I won't get bored

    I'm looking forward to Bungie/Halo; Scribblenauts if it's there; Uncharted 2; Alan Wake; Silent Hill Memories; and probably a lot more that escapes me. The main booth I'll probably be handing around is the Aion one, as I'm hoping to score an invite to their launch party at the space needle on Friday. ;)

    This is my first gaming con and I'm going alone (eek!) so I think I'm going to be overwhelmed but I'm sure it'll be fun.

    Yeah same here, cept for the alone part, got 2 friends coming with me.
    Yeah I'm not sure what to expect. I will most likely be spending very little time anywhere and everywhere in order to see everthing at PAX.

    TEKKEN 6 will be alive and rockin' at the Namco Bandai Games booth on the exhibit hall floor!

    Myself and a few SDTEKKEN guys will be there during the event, anyone else looking forward to getting some fun matches in on TEKKEN 6? :)

    Also, who loves arcade sticks!

    Will there be Tekken tournaments or contests for prizes? ;-)

    I don't know what a tattoo sleeve is. You're not talking about like arm-warmers with fake tats on them or something are you? Cuz that's not what I meant. I'm talking about a real muthafuckin' tattoo here. It was Cinco De Mayo, I was in love with Tekken, and it just sorta happened. :)

    GuildWars2~

    Since the trailer for GuildWars2 came out as of last week for Games Com 09, and last year they had a panel with the devs mentioning a bit about their future, one could only assume there will be goodies for this title :)

    I think I'm the only person on the planet who isn't stoked about RB: Beatles. I really would prefer to just get the DLC. But that's neither here nor there.[/QUOTE]

    Totally agree! I am not buying the Beatles games but will rent it.

    Things I'm looking forward to (because saying "everything" would be lame):

    - Privateer Press booth, because I bet they'll have all the Retribution models out in a fantastic diorama.
    - Bioware, because there's always that chance they'll have a playable demo for Dragon Age: Origins.
    - Seeing thousands of people who share similar interests to mine at my first PAX.

    Just have to remember next year to make plans way in advance. This whole scrabbling for a hotel room thing really sucks.

    NCsoft has so many cute females working there, it would almost be worth the jail time to kidnap Will Ferrel to barter for entry.

    Criminal Acts aside, Guild Wars artwork is so sexy that I sometimes wish that they would get with the guys from Odin sphere and that one game on the wii to do a game.

    so sexy

    So I just read an article over @ 1up.com saying that Left 4 Dead's 3rd campaign 'Dark Carnival' will be playable at PAX.

    and I got 2 words for ya: Zombie Clowns

    So, has anybody heard of anything else that will be debuting at PAX?

    Definitely gotta stop by the Mana Energy Potion booth. They are giving out free Mana and Health Potion samples. Also, they got some consoles with BlazBlue on it for free play(since they teamed up with them at game launch and they were featured on the BlazBlue Collector's Edition DVD).

    There will also be a BlazBlue Tournament every day. The winner will receive a Mana Energy Potion/ BlazBlue gift pack!

    Tournament Registration is at 1PM each day at Booth #161 (Mana Energy Potions).
    16 players in each tournament.
    Tournament starts at 2PM.

    I'll be there. Probably all too eager to get my ass beat by some nerd, but whatever. :)

    I'll also stop at the Mana booth for that BlazBlue action. Again, probably just going to be there for somebody else to beat, but hey, all in good fun.

    I may throw my hat in the ring Saturday or Sunday.

    I haven't competitively played Tekken since making it to a regional qualifer during the national Tekken 4 tournament. I've played 5 in arcades and DR on PS3, but haven't done much head to head except with friends.

    Time to dust off the old Bob juggles and Steve sequences. I wonder if I can remember enough chain throws to make a decent effort with King or Armored King?
