I’d have gone but it’s on halloween weekend, no game can compete with halloween parties, also I have an anniversary saturday, and the ticket prices were like, almost half my e3 alcohol budget, which is a bit much for a one game show. Though the dumb pet thing looks ok, whatever its called.
Yeah, I’d love to go but it’s rather expensive to fly out just for a fan convention. I’m sure the attendees will have a lot of fun. They get a lot of bang for the buck too, with a concert by the Offspring, a goodie bag with a t-shirt I’m sure they can hawk on eBay for good money, etc.
To be clear: this isn’t intended as solely a thread for a meetup. It’s a “Keep all the Blizzcon news in one place” thread in a (ultimately futile, I’m sure) attempt to keep WoW stuff from overrunning the games forum with several different posts.
Post news as it happens, and I’ll float links up to the first post, give credit where due, that sort of thing.
Not to completely derail, but check out the West Hollywood ‘parade’ thing sometime. Plenty of crazy, crazy costumes. Hell a few years ago I saw a FLAMING mohawk guy. Like as in, fire, not the normal WeHo flaming.
$120 for a Murloc pet, 2 days of Concentrated Nerd Funk, standing behind some gargantuan unwashed poorly socialized ape waiting (im)patiently for your 30s turn at the WoW expansion pack stuff, and listening to the real life version of the goddamn WoW general forum.
