Yep! That's been known unofficially for a while, but they only just added it to the site.

Still waiting for the travel desk and panel/speaker submissions to come up of course, but woo, my pass is bought.

On a scale of one to ten, it was over nine thousand.

Seriously, there were aggravations, but there's a reason I bought my pass on the first day of registration this year, and it's not just because they'll sell out quickly -- that will, honestly, probably happen on a scale of a couple of months; they won't all sell out in a week. (At least I'd hope not!) It was wicked awesome, and I think we can expect the best bits to make a comeback. They're in an even bigger space this year, so I imagine they'll be able to do even more cool stuff. And they're doing away with concert wristbands altogether, so you won't even need to be up at the ass-crack of dawn to get guaranteed access to the main floor and your JoCo fix -- it'll all be first come, first served the evening of the concert.

I loved it. I can't wait to go back. I'm probably going to shell out a good bit of money for a hotel room just so I don't have to leave the party. That's the best endorsement I can offer.

There were two concerts. I think the Protomen might have been on the Friday night schedule? I went to the Saturday night concert with the VGO, Paul & Storm and JoCo.

So, something has come up and I won't be going to PAX East. I'm willing to sell my 3 Day pass at cost ($55) to whoever takes me up on it first. Anyone here interested? It really is a fun time and well worth going :)

Not that I think anyone here was going to take it, but the pass has been sold.

If you didn't see the announcement on my Facebook page, yes, I've made it through the first round of the Omegathon! It was a near thing, and sadly I have not been paired with the really cute hardcore gamer who won the round, but the adventure continues. Keep the good luck coming!

Well good luck(despite my not knowing what the Omegathon is, for all I know this could be the PAX version of Battle Royale)!

The Omegathon is a massive gaming tournament held each year at PAX. This year, 28 gamers enter...2 gamers leave. And get to go to a huge gaming convention in Germany. So, seriously, they leave. The country. In the summer. For a few days.

Anyway, first round was Katamari, which I did not ace (see above, re: wicked cute hardcore gamer girl), but did not fail badly enough at to be eliminated. Three of my fellow Omeganauts were, and a fourth had to drop out because he ran into some financial trouble and wasn't able to attend PAX East after all. :( Tomorrow morning we play Bananagrams (something like Scrabble without the board), and 12 of the remaining 24 will go away; then those 12 will go on to play Jenga on Saturday night, four losers will be cut away there, the remaining 8 will be cut in half in a Sunday morning game of Operation, and the last players standing will play a mystery game. Phew. So, lots of gaming, is basically what I'm saying, and surprisingly little of it is video gaming.

And God ow my back hurts, and I'm going to go lie down for a while now.
