[Seattle] PAX / Halo 2 / CGTalk Gathering 1.5


don’t know if everyone in the Seattle area knows about it, but…


the guys at Penny Arcade are having a 2 day game convention in Bellevue, WA. and most importantly…



my wife and i are going and i was thinking we could maybe get the seattle’cgtalkers together again and BS, poke sharp sticks at bentllama, and just, well, get together [maybe plan another gethering]. let me know, although busy, i can try to put something togther. PAX August 28th and 29th.

i will be there playing UT2004 and maybe some Halo 2, why not.


Damnit, I’ll be at burning man that week. Which isn’t really damnit at all but I’d like to be able to attend that.

This is Lane making his grrr face.



take note that I believe it is only playable on Sunday afternoon for a few hours…


Read: Bring a nightstick and can of deodorant to fight off the verging-on-critical-mass amount of nerds if you want to play.

I’m kind of sad, heading back to Rochester the 27th of August so I won’t be able to road trip it up to PAX. I am never in the right place for these big conventions though I may try to get down to San Diego Comicon this year, would be my first comic convention, just want to go for the PA stuff anyhoo.


i may make an appearance, but i’m a nobody anyway


you are somebody.

you’re good enough. you’re smart enough. and gosh darn it, people like you…and your animation!



I’ll be there. Just let me know what day and time, unless you are thinking we will spend the entire 48 hours together. If that is the case, I won’t be there :smiley:


i would hope to go skipping through the expo holding hands with fellow cgtalk’ers.

…nothing like that, just get together for drinks or make a UT2004 team of all cgtalk’ers, no big woop.


sounds good to me, I’ll see if any of my class mates will show up this time.


Lousy other side of the continent… lousy lack of transportation… lousy lack of even being able to afford transportation…


You’d better all have fun! I swear if I find out that you’ve WASTED your time by not enjoying yourself I… will probably sit at home and groth some more, because I can’t go…



bentllama gonna own joo in halo 2. :twisted:


well you should, you have more practice than any of us.:smiley:

About the only thing that I am good at anymore is drawing the enemy’s fire, and the occasional laugh as I shoot a wall point blank with a rocket launcher.


Just a friendly reminder that this is comming up in just a few weeks. Where are all the Seattle people?


also, sign up before the 10th so you can be entered in the Omegathon [win all of this!!!]


AHHH! Don’t link to it! Seeing its naked magnificence… every time I look at it, my heart swells up and I think I am going to die.



Games at PAX

Okay, I have the final lists of the Microsoft and Ubisoft games you’ll be able to check out at PAX. You will understand how a person could get excited:

<LI>On the Microsoft front, it’s pretty significant. As I mentioned before, Forza Motorsport will be there, and playable, in the multimonitor form the media saw at E3. Everything else I’m about to mention - everything - is in a newer or more complete state than was available at the expo. So, that means that the Jade Empire you play there will be newer. The Fable you play there will be very near to the complete version. More recent, playable versions of Kameo and Conker multiplayer will be there as well, along with the excellent Mechassault 2: Lone Wolf. Dungeon Siege 2 would be on display as well, as I understand it. Not a bad list.

Ubisoft is bringing out some big guns as well - you’ll be able to play the sequel to Ghost Recon, Ghost Recon, um… 2, play some Myst 4: Revelations if you like, and Ubisoft is also hosting a Rainbow Six: Black Arrow tournament. You’ll be able to see some live demos that will essentially pummel you unconscious, though - Brothers in Arms will be there, which I think you’ll come away from impressed. You’ll be able to see Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory as well, running on the Xbox. You’ll note that I’ve been suspiciously silent on the topic of SC3, a game that many people said was the best thing at E3. Let me be frank: once you’ve seen it, there’s no way to talk about the game objectively. I didn’t even try. The only way to explain it is just to let you see it for yourself, which is something you can do at PAX.
