Pre-PAX Hype!

 It is currently 5am and I've been up for nearly an hour now due to my internal clock still thinking it's already 8am on the east coast. It also doesn't help that I went to bed at roughly midnight-1am, so I've only had maybe 3 hours of sleep after being up almost 24 hours due to having to get up early to catch the plane to come here.

 All that aside I figured I'd do a quick post to say I'm at my first PAX Prime. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't all that excited after being at PAX East the past 3 years. However, this being my first Prime, I am definitely excited to see it. As I did with East I'll update on all that I saw and the panels I went to and the people I saw.

 Speaking of which, while I was hanging around just outside the convention entrance I happen to already spot some famous faces of the Internet. So congrats to Corey and Ian Horner of LoadingReadyRun, James Portnow, Lucahjin, and NintendoCapriSun, you are my first sightings of this years PAX Prime! And if that wasn't enough, one of my friends ran into Justin Wong randomly at the airport while waiting to meetup with me. Unfortunately this was one celebrity meetup I wish I was there for but it was not to be. :( Hopefully I'll run into him myself during PAX, but with thousands of other people walking around its unlikely but you never know. I am certainly looking forward to meeting some new faces including Dodger and Sam, James Rolfe (AVGN), and Zoe Quinn. Unfortunately there probably won't be any Something Awful goons I'll run into, but there will be some SDA speed runners that I hope to catch a sight of, most notably Mike Uyama and romscout. They're doing a panel this year on Monday, but unfortunately I am heading back home on that day. It certainly breaks my heart not attending and supporting the one community that I am most proud of being a part of, but I do hope to run into them beforehand. 

 Well that's going to so it for my fist post from Seattle, and I'll keep you guys up to date tomorrow!
