I can't compete with what Ted went through at the show, but I can tell you some of what happened to me, in no particular order.
Chad Concelmo sang my name (well, avatar, anyway) in the closing moments of the communities panel. I had to wait outside the door until somebody left to get in, but hearing that made my week. I made a Chad face of my own when I heard it.
I creeped the hell out of Garison because I forgot that while I knew what he looks like, he had no idea who the hell I was. PROTIP: when meeting internet people, make your introductions early.
A man in OfficeMax thought I was an employee because I was wearing a red and white Destructoid introduction nametag. Do I LOOK like a Qalamari?
CTZ told me, in no uncertain terms, to suck his dick.
Dexter and I totally geeked out at the Elephant and Castle pub, having a seriously epic pokemon battle in the middle of a crowded bar. It was a true battle of equals, coming down to the last move on each of our last critters.
I got to meet Samit, and seeing as it was his birthday, I brought him a card. I was in the middle of my battle with Dexter at the time, so The GHost was nice enough to give it to him for me.
Despite my caution; drinking Airborne, taking Zinc, Echinachea and Vitamin C every day, carrying hand sanitizer and washing up before every meal, I believe I have gotten a mild case of the con SARS. For this reason (and certainly NOT the self-inflicted sleep deprivation over the duration of the expo) I needed to sleep for about 16 straight hours once I got home last night. That is why this recap is so late, and I beg your indulgence, just this once.
I got to meet a whole lot of fantastic, amazing people from Destructoid on the last day. I brought the friend I was traveling with to the meetup, and he was seriously impressed by how genuine and nice everybody was. I'll go more into detail on my own blog, of course. Although this is my first post of the month, I'm going to put off doing YTMNDs until next week due to the lateness of this post and all the PAX stuff I've already written here.
One last thing... this happened.
That's me, Pendleton, Garison, ScottyG, and Funktastic. I wanted to get a picture of all the recappers who were at PAX, and fortunately, we were able to do so. I heart you all. See you next year!
BONUS! As you may have heard, Knights Of The Old Republic is available on Steam now. BioWare were giving out vouchers if you went to see the Old Republic demo, and I got a couple spares. Would you like one? Call it a sort of an apology for bowing to biological needs rather than powering through them. Below is a code you can enter into Steam for a KOTOR of your very own. Just go to the "My Games" tab, click "Activate a product" and enter in the code. First one to enter the code gets it, so good luck!
Whoever wins, mind making a comment so all the losers can hate you forever? Thanks!
