Tomorrow I jump on a plane for Seattle, and PAX - my first time attending this Mecca of gaming and geek culture, and I'm very excited to be there. For those interested in saying hello, here's my schedule:
1:30pm - Machinima.com booth #3452
I have no idea what I'm actually doing there yet, some kind of on-air interview? My old chum and fellow former PC Gamer Editor-in-Chief Rob Smith works at Machinima.com now and he asked me to stop by so that's what I'm gonna do!
8:30pm - GIANT BOMBCAST LIVE! - Pegasus Theater @ Sheraton
Giant Bomb's Ryan Davis roped me into a secret (well, I guess now not-so secret) appearance at what is sure to be a fun live event. I'll be joining forces with my old chum Jeff Green (of CGW/GFW/Brodeo/Bombcast and all other kinds of fame) and a SPECIAL MYSTERY INDUSTRY GUEST who is sure to stir things up.
1:30pm GAMES WRITING 101 - Raven Theater
I'll be up on stage with James Portnow (Extra Credits), Pixar's Dan Floyd and a panel of other writers, all of whom have more distinguished game-writing credits than I do, to talk about storytelling and writing in videogames and taking questions from the audience.
So that's it! The rest of the time I'll just be wandering around, checking out videogames and also looking for donuts. If you happen to catch me trying out Dance Central, as I intend to do, PLEASE do not film it.
