For my first PAX, this was more than I could have expected. I'm glad I was able to finally go to the Con that's an hour and a half drive from my damn house hah. Was lucky enough to grab 3 Day passes for me and @sickslickman back when they went up.
HOLY CRAP am I sore, but it was so, so worth it. I realized that I enjoyed wandering around seeing everything on the expo floor, meeting people, and seeing cosplays than anything else. I did wish I could have checked out a few more of the big name games there, but I had no intention to stand in line for half the day just to do so.
Did get to enjoy a few panels, the Penny Arcade Q&A, RT Panel, and one about the worst stories Community Managers of MMOs had to offer. Found it was better to pick a few you really wanted to see and then just take in and enjoy the rest of the show.
I was a bit better about actually taking pictures this time over RTX, but I just enjoy being able to talk and meet people I follow over autographs and photos for literally everything I found, but BOY oh BOY did I meet a lot of people this con. Lets have a run down shall we?
Twitch Streamers: ProfessorBroman, Geoff, FiFi (Firedragon764), Caleb Hart, Witwix, and Jessie Cox
Youtubers: ProJared, Markiplier, Wade, Bob, Yamimash, Jackcepticeye, and Matt and Woolie from Super Best Friends
RoosterTeeth: Was great to see and talk to Adam (Gilby) again, hadn't really been able to talk much since RTX because everyone has just been so busy. Jack, Franco, Jordan, Kovic, Bruce, and James.
People I know via the RT Community: @Sickslickman, @Holystone (MoofMurphy), @Maiu, Andrew Blanchard, Matt (I don't remember your RT name sorry man), and who at first I THOUGHT might be Sonja (Soulfire Photography), because I noticed both her Neo Cosplay and her boyfriend @Danjitsu, but it turned out to be her friend Katie @Anrild in her Neo Costume and Danjitsu. So that was a whole thing, and they are never ever going to let that down, RIP lol.
Others that I got to meet: Swery the creator of D4 and Deadly Premonition, Yuri the Monster Hunter community manager for Capcom, and a WHOLE bunch of super amazing and wonderful cosplays, it makes me excited to have my commissioned cosplay of Zer0 be done.
SO, all in all, freaking amazing trip, I know i'm probably forgetting people I met or talked to, but it got to a point where it was THAT hard to keep track of everyone and everything I was seeing. I really want to be able to go next year as well, and hopefully RTX is next. Oh, I also remembered my Birthday was this week, so not a bad way to start off this week either.
Pics will be up soon!
