Unfortunately not one of us got in. Saturday night and Preview night tickets sold out almost immediately, then Friday, Thursday and lastly Sunday. The mood went from elated and excited to extremely sad. We felt like failures because we couldn't get tickets for our friends. There is always stuff to do outside of the convention center also. Nerd HQ is going to have a lot of stuff as well.
I came home today to another part of my nerdigras. My tickets for PAX East came in the mail today.
Pax East is a video game convention put together by the creators of Penny Arcade (the web comic). There you can test the upcoming video games or buy games before they come out. One can also test out the newest technology in video gaming and PC gaming. The vendors are constantly giving away prizes. They also have a retro video gaming lounge, which is where I love to spend my time. Within the past two years, the table top gaming section has expanded beyond belief. You can "take out" games like you can take out books at the library. You give them your license and try out the game before you commit to buying it. Pax East is a 3 day affair. Starting April 11 and goes until April 13.
You best believe that I will be documenting both events with a ton of pictures!
