there seem to be less panels. than I recall, I will have to get out my schedule from last year but it seems like every hour there were two to four panels going on. this year there are a lot of times when its one or none with a lot more gaming tournaments.


Loading ready run only getting an hour? maybe hour and a half?


Also where is all the portnow?

His panels were amazing last year and this year he only seems to be doing one.

No offense, but I was severely underwhelmed by the Escapist Movie night last year and will probably not be attending. Hopefully the LRR crew doesn't have to go for very long so they can catch the Saturday night concerts for the first time in... well... ever. They deserve it. Or the Scott and Kris show if the prefer. They'd probably get invited up as special guests for that...

I thought the swag that they gave away was pretty awesome, but other than that it was severely underwhelming and seeing how nonplussed people were to win such awesome peripherals was a really big piss off.



I dont know about anything else, but I was super geeked about the headphones I won. Then I tried them out and thought "huh these arent very good" so I looked them up online, they retail for $14.99

Honestly overall that's probably good, since I've heard a lot of panels in previous years were just... not very good. Hopefully that means this year the vetted them a little better. More gaming tournaments is good too, since, you know, this is PAX, it's supposed to be about playing games.

I think Portnow's appearances last year were mostly off-schedule, weren't they? Besides the Extra Credits panel (which is still there)....

Maybe fewer LoadingReadyRun panels will mean the crew gets to actually enjoy PAX more, rather than spending the entire weekend in a mad dash panic mode?

several of the panels that portnow was on last year are reappearing this year, so maybe he was using his cred to get things on the schedule like the gamification panel, and the mental health panel which I attended last year. He is such a nice guy.

as for LRR, I think they said it would be Graham and Kathleen and MAYBE James at this point so there is only so much they can do. But we will have to wait to see what they say.

I remember you cheering when you won Hosk, but I also remember people being less than enthused. Alas, not a big problem.

As for who's coming, I don't remember hearing anything about who's coming.

I more meant he popped up on a bunch of panels randomly. I know he "crashed" the LRR panel last year. He does seem like a super nice guy. The whole Extra Credits crew does! I just want to hug them.

Yeah it's Graham, Kathleen, and James. Graham posted about this earlier in the thread. Or maybe they talked about it in one of the recent podcasts. I'm quite sure of it.

And they STILL have not told me their favorite snack vegetable! It's THEIR FAULT if all they get are baby carrots of questionable quality! D:<

After looking through the panels, I'm not sure which ones I want to go to. There are some that jump out at me. And I'm glad that the LRR panel isn't going to be the same night as the Saturday Concert, since I wanted to see MC Frontalot and Joco live but also wanted to go see LRR. Though that's replaced by kind of wanting to go to the escapist thing... D'oh.

Still, it's making me even more excited for it. Just over two weeks left.

AHHHH! I am now going for ALL THREE DAYS because Steve Dengler is the best. This is my first time attending PAX... and not just sneaking into An Evening With LRR.

I can't even. Lost the ability to even. Lost the ability to can.

re: Hosk

Yeah, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels there are less panels this year. Though the point about them vetting might also make a point. To be fair I had friends and friends of friends able to make it last year only because they got to run a panel, but some of those probably shouldn't have been done anyways...

Attention Rainbow rumpus party town members! Check your email! There was an error in my original email. We're staying at the Renaissance, not the Seaport.

I messed up with the price too, it's $20 more per person than I thought, but don't worry about it, I'll pay for it. I am nothing if not a man of my word!

Do you realize that there are currently 12 standard commercial apples available at large grocery chains, and more than a dozen more varieties if you go to "natural food" locations?

Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Pink Lady, Empire,Mcintosh, Red Delicious, Ginger Gold Fugi(man), Honey Crisp, Breaburn, Jonathan, Gala, Cortland, Rome...

And thats just off the top of my head COME ON MAN! You cant just say apples, you cant even compare apples to apples anymore without getting it wrong, WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TOO!

(takes a deep breath)

I had a bad experience a while ago when a lady asked me what kind of apple I suggest for pie when she saw me getting three different ones. She yelled at me for giving her a bad answer. COME ONE you cant just take one it takes at least three for a good pie.

Just wondering if everyone's sold their passes already. I now have people bombarding me with emails/PMs and wanna set them up if anyone has extras.

HA! Just a few days ago I had an extra pass and didn't know who to give it to! Now suddenly everyone's looking to buy? Crazy!

Yeah all mine are accounted for. Sorry!

Excellent, good idea, and they last. I'm hoping my grocery will restock some mixed veggie bags they had a few weeks ago, but if not, baby carrots it is. Maybe I'll try to find a few ranch dip things too, if that'll help.

Gotta keep you guys fueled for a busy weekend. :)

Oh come on, Hosk. I know which apples are the good ones. I wasn't born yesterday.

They can trust me.

He said ominously.

Muah ha ha.

Also also also, if you download the guidebook app, you can get a map of the the convention center.

Next to the Handheld Lounge, there is something called the "Pokemon Lounge."

I am freaking out a little bit over here.
