A Brief Descent into PAX 2010

On the days of September third through September fifth, in the year of our lord two thousand and ten, a congregation of nerddom so powerful as to eclipse the essence of description itself, descended upon the huddled, humbled peasantry of Seattle. Known as the PAX, we could not look away. (Apologies for the quality, these were all shot on my last-gen iPhone. We’ll have more—and much better quality—stuff from PAX up soon!)

We looked down upon the morass from our ivory tower. I actually can’t believe how good of a deal we got on these hotel rooms!

Other creatures afflicted our senses, their truth of what is real scant overwrought by our own.

Bizarre rituals ocurred. People feasting while wiggling sticks-and-balls and dancing in wholly impractical attire.

A dopplegänger known only as Eric of Sapp attempted theft of Ryan’s soul.

At a scarce and oft-challenged watering hole, some dutiful journeymen and women of the nation of BioWare approached us and our companions to share with us rings of power they had absconded with—through games of chance, so the story was told—from the lair of the mighty drake-beast Gameworks.

Forced into a den of debauchery by our need to acquire the services of others on the Ninth Quest of the Dragon, we were dismayed that layabouts are encouraged by floors bathed in giant cushionry. Our talismans were stacked ever higher in attempts to unite in cause and duty.
Guess which one belongs to Jeff Green.

Surfaces of strange runes and sigils filled the darkened corners of halls and of our minds. The masters of these domains seldom even glanced our way so enthralled were they in their dark arts.

We fled via tunnels beneath the besieged city, the fear palpable in our eyes. Fare you well, Seattle.

Our quest is not at an end. There is yet more to tell…

Twas one's journey periolous and treacherous?
Did thy man go into thy PAX Lair and find the unmarked computing device that held the key to the Braid creator's game? (Did you play The Widow?)

Twas your PAX experience satsifactory, somewhat satsifactory, or not satisfactory at all?

Insert coin(to play Pax's Lair again)

That's 'cause the last-gen iPhone's mic sucks and all that you could hear was a bunch of background noise. I figured it'd be less annoying to just see the videos :).

No, I didn't get to play The Widow. Didn't even hear about it until after the show :(
