#3

Well, I’m scheduled to work with you in the mornings anyway, so I’m definitely helping out.

SCIV tourney is gonna be funny.


#4

I’ll be there but I’m not entering any of those events. I don’t own or play any of those games.


#5

What is there to do at PAXorz? How much to get in? I am much too lazy to use that little search box in the top right corner of my browser. I appreciate any and all help.

Thanks.

I might be at PAX Friday and part of saturday. I’ll probably be at the Garage Games booth most of the time.


#7

I might be at PAX Friday before heading back to Portland for Kumoricon.
Can I still help out? I don’t know how long the non-prereg lines will be… lol


#8

Its 30 bucks for 1 day, and 50 for a 3 day pass. There’s the tourneys obviously to go to, and then there’s a ton of panels about gaming in general. Most importantly, there’s a gigantic expo hall with a ton of previews of games coming out. Last year, there was a small section in the corner with free arcade games, including MvC2.


#9

I’ll be going Sat and Sunday. I live in the LQC (lower queen anne) so if anyone wants to hang sat, sun night give me a loud vocal.


#10

stfu scrub!

Mark: I definitely wouldn’t mind your help with Smash.

To everyone else: Here’s the master schedule.

If you want to help out with a specific tournament, make sure it doesn’t conflict with anything else you want to attend.


#11

He was probably drunk. Look for the typos.


#12

I’ll be there Friday and most likely Sunday to help.


#13

I don’t think i’ll be going to this robert. But I’m not certain yet.


#14

When are you coming back and how?


#15

Zach: If you have to choose one or the other, I’d rather you come Friday than Sunday.

For everyone else: If you can only come one day, I’d rather it be Saturday. That’s when I’ll need the most help, all day if possible.


#16

I’ll definitely be there Friday. Any particular things I should bring or wear?

Sunday’s just a 80% maybe because if it kills me Friday and then I go to Bumbershoot Saturday I might be too dead. :smile:


#17

Don’t need anything, just yourself.

To all: in case it wasn’t clear, I need you to show up around noon on Friday and about 10am on Saturday/Sunday. Once you arrive, call my cell phone so we can meet up and I’ll give you a staff pass. This is assuming you aren’t paying to enter the expo itself.


#18

sounds good.


#19

Smash players are unbelievably nice to each other. The tourney was a total love/hug-fest and people were complimenting each other and explaining strategy to each other midmatch. WOW. I’m impressed. If I didn’t think Brawl took too long and was too boring, I would switch games. I definitely learned a lot from watching.

ya but i bet they don’t get blond chicks watching them play for half an hour like at zach’s
