Quick post before I konk out in bed: Friday at PAX was pretty awesome. Line to get in was absolutely insane, but it moved fast and we were in the expo hall quickly. Spent the better part of an hour and a half wandering and seeing the sights, while also giving the mechanical horse promotion for Darksiders a go. After that, we did some PA Q&A, met Kris Straub and Wil Wheaton, had some food, hit up the Scott Kurtz panel, and then ended the night with a Rock Band tourny entry (which won't go down as our best performance of "Carry on my Wayward Son", but might certainly have been the most fun), before finally settling into some console freeplay, giving the 1990 Nintendo World Championship cartridge a roll.

Ultimately I'd say the day was partially successful, if only because we missed the ODST panel (due to Q&A going long) and the DS World Record Attempt (because it was poorly planned), but despite both those setbacks still had an absolute blast. Honestly, the day worked out great and any complaints I have are far overshadowed by how much fun was had.

PAX is pretty much the best con I've ever been to, and this year so far has definitely surpassed my previous experience. There's just a lot more space for everything, and as a result the place feels less crowded, even though I know it's about 15,000 more people. I feel like I've already done so much, and yet it's only Friday. I have two more days and I still don't want this weekend to end.

Tommorrow's planned schedule is a lot more open, so we'll see where the day takes us. Also - this took longer then expected. Sleep needed now.
