    So PAX is over and we are all sad so now we shall share stories and pictures of this monumental event.

    All of Xen should try and make it we had a fucking awesome time including meeting and hanging out with the Minibosses and being backstage while MC Frontalot played and relaxed in a VIP section while The Minibosses played. PAX is the greatest even ever

    Anyone who could have gone and didn't.....you fail at life. Like seriously, go find the tallest building in town and jump off of it. This was the craziest, most fun convention ever.

    Love you too Ep PEE ON.

    It is on the opposite side of the US from me. I might go ONE day, but I couldn't this year.

    I'll post some pics when I get home. I was able to meet up with a bunch of the GW folks there which was fun. I'll be writing up some interviews I did there, as well as write up about the ArenaNet VIP party and couple other things when I get time. Most of this will be posted over at Guild Wars Guru.

    I just met up with the right people they were reall cool, so we had dinner with the Minibosses, drinks around town, snuck beer into the green room, played Nintendo with Jonathan Coulton and Aaron, got escorted to the backstage stuff, including the beanbags in front of the stage while everyone else had to stand.

    EpyonNext got some amazing photos of it all. I'm just really grateful to Chris Lai and Aaron cause they were so awesome and let me and a whole gaggle of my crew come on the adventure. They were really nice and we had a huge blast.

    It's a small world, cause the next day, Sunday, we met up with my other PAX Twitter Shitter friend Chealsea and played that train board game with one of the guys from MC Frontalot, Brandon. I also went to a really nice catered free booze party at the Seattle Public Library (designed by famous architech Rem fucking Koolhaus himself) put on by the Champions Online crew, and met one of the bioware developers working on the 'not yet announced MMO that you know I can't affirm' that of course we all already know is Star Wars KOTOR, and hit the Freezepop and Jonathan Coulton show.

    PAX is the shit. I'll say the same thing I did last year: if you are physically capable of coming, you have to do it. The final attendance figure was 56,800. HUGE. The projection was 45,000, over last year's 37,000.
