This one goes out to everyone with post Pax blues, but more specifically... people who have a reason to complain about where they live, even in normal circumstances, let alone after EPIC GAMING CONVENTIONS!
Well, at least in part.
I'm totally going to talk about the things I miss too!
I'm from the UT Valley... That's even less cool than SLC for those of you wondering. Sothern Cali is my true home, but i'm here now so it's BLEH and now in the wake of PAX glory, it falls dramatically short of my ideals.
At least I'm reflectively reminded of the many exciting points of PAX that will keep me going until next year and THAT my friends, is a fantastic reason to stay positive.
The Cosplay was great! some funny (both intentionally and not) costumes to be sure, but some were just killer awesome too! that Fruit Fucker was prime! and solid Snake was pretty damn good. Oh, and lest we not forget Male Peach ;) that was too hot
The Presentations were so unbelievable and the participation from the crowd was baffling as well as impressive. It never ceases to amaze me just how close I feel with my fellow attendees just based on our kinship as gamers and Penny Arcade nerds.
A few ironic but fantastic points: the sound problems... although, a massive pain in the ass, it provided some funny ass moments during the Q&A more than once. The lines: TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE! people just walked in from wherever they wished most of the time anyways... but actually, I met some DAMN cool people in line. I was forced to come alone this year (due to unforeseen circumstances) but I met these guys in line Friday morning that were so cool, I hung out with them the entire weekend! Also, there were some intensely creative (albeit, often phallic in nature) moments.
I don't know where to end... but just let it be said, after this weekend, I'm going to be on the forums a ton to offer any participation I can, show gratitude and be stoked as hell every day that the next PAX is one day closer to me yet again and until then... I'll whine a little about having to camp out here in Utah in the mean time.
Take it easy all and thanks for making all of us PAXians feel like the family we truly are as nerds and gamers.
