Too bad I'm going to PAX (The Penny-Arcade Expo) this year, otherwise I'd definantly try and make it to this.  Basically it's a big convention centered around Blizzard  (Kind of like Fan Faire for Everquest.)  Here's the skinny

I just read about this. The dates are actually REALLY bad for me, and my Blizzard friends are going to be in New York that week, so I'm not sure how great my coverage would be. But if I know someone else who is going, perhaps...

I''m not playing any of Blizzard's stuff right now but, since it's so close to home, most likely I'll end up going with some friends.  I'll try to post some pictures and a commentary.  Definatly looking forward to seeing the Starcraft pro gamers.

Tickets went on sale the 21st.  At $120, I'd love to go but, don't see it happening right now.  Sorry guys.

Yeah, those tickets are a little (Well, a LOT) outrageous.  Even if I could go I probably wouldn't due to those prices.  My three day pass to PAX cost me 30 bucks, plus 10 more for a BYOC spot.  Simply unacceptable.

I think the recent Blizzard was quite boring, I don't think Mists of Pandaria will be good. I expected more to be announced for my satisfaction.

I just saw the trailer for that Hearthstone game and it looks like a Magic rip off. This will never catch on, Blizzard.

Yossi! Summoner! Hello and welcome back!

Neither of you have been here in 6 to 8 years and you both came back on the same day within six minutes of each other to complain about Blizzard.

There's something magical about that.

I know you aren't spambots because I remember you from the beforetimes, but given that most people are spambots now, I'm scared you might be spambots.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Spambots? No no. I'm a normal human selling car insurance.

I am soothed by your words and marveled by your near synchronization.
