PAX East approacheth


PAX East is this weekend! Eeeeee! Check out this sweet ass schedule. Things I'm most looking forward to: Johnathan Coulton and the Video Game Orchestra, "MMO gamer behavior 101," "Everything you always wanted to know about game journalism...", and "Girls and Games: The Growing Role of Women in the Game Industry." And that's just a couple examples.

Also, I get to meet a ton of guildies that I've never met before. Awesomeness is bound to ensue. Also, I'm probably going to meet up with Maerdred on Friday, which will be pretty awesome. =D

We have three guildies (hi Luth, Lumi, and Lampy!) who are staying at our place tonight through Sunday. As such, much cleaning has occurred! Seriously, look at how clean this apartment is:

No recently-laundered clothes that I'm too lazy to put away on the couch! No glasses or beer bottles hanging around on the table! And look at how shiny everything is! Other than the fact that our little tree is STILL not properly potted, and is still in a huge plastic container that used to hold cat litter, our apartment looks pretty spiffy.

We should have company over more often, simply to kick us into hypergear-cleaning mode. Our living room hasn't been this clean in AGES. ^^

On a completely different note, our 10 man achievement runs have been going pretty well. We've gotten to the Lich King and have had a few great attempts, and also a crapton of lousy ones, too. But I think we're going to get there. We got into P5 really cleanly once, and damn, it felt good. Sooo close to grabbing the Kingslayer title. Hopefully next week we'll rock it out.

On another completely different note, who's playing FFXIII? I was never into the FF games (like, at all - guildies will have epic hour long debates about which is better, 2, or 6, or 7, or whatever, and I'll be like, I LIKED TEH OCARINA OF TIEM, and they'll be like, whatever noob), but I've been watching Pete play and I really dig it. I've never enjoyed turn-based games, but when I watch FFXIII, I'm 100% distracted from its innate game mechanics by the HAIR. The characters' hair is just...... there are no words. /drool. Their video-game hair looks better in every possible way than my real life hair. Seriously. Wtf.

Time to get a few more things ready for this weekend. Hope to see some of you there!

Nice apartment! I hope when My GF and I move in together my Rock Band gear will be so prominently displayed!

Can't wait to meet up with you guys!

How was Pax??

Totally off topic... I'd like to get your opinion on something if you don't mind. I was recently “informed” that resto druids are “Dead Last” in effectiveness of tank healing. I realize our raid heals are kick ass, but to have someone tell me we suck as tank healers, or that we should be last priority when assigning a healer to a tank, struck a nerve. I’m curious as to what your thoughts are!
