Yeah I played Bioshock last night. Yeah it rules. Yeah it is scary. Yeah the audio in it is some of the finest I have ever heard (well since System Shock 2 anyways.)

Regarding the t-shirts you may have seen some of us wearing in the PAX pictures - those were a super limited batch for just HMX'ers and a few outside people. But if you look closely you will notice that sometimes we aren't wearing Rock Band shirts, we are just wearing regular shirts with Rock Band stickers on them (and now you won't get fooled again!) I actually brought along only two shirts to PAX for the two community members who told me they were going to be there. I am trying to work on some cool stuff to give to community members that I meet in the future, though. Can't have people going home empty handed, after all.

Moss gets random...again.

    I'd figure it'd be enough to just meet you, Sean. Take home the memories.


    That's not to say I wouldn't like a free shirt if we ever cross paths.

    And it's only single player, so there's just a message saying that you are "shooting up splicers in Neptune's Delight"!!

    I love the Upgrade machine's message..there is some very cool stuff in there, and I find myself wandering around looking till the Spider Splicers jump off the ceiling!

    Argh, too bad I'm living so far away from you Sean. We'll probably never going to meet. :(


    ...and I'll never get my T-Shirt. :p


    Oh, and did I already mention how awesome Bioshock was? I finished it two days ago.

    I saw people at PAX who covered their shirts and pants in those stickers.

    T-shirts to forum members at PAX? So lucky! Yet another reason I wish I lived on the west coast and could have gone.

    Well you know right damn well that Hot Topic will have RB shirts soon...

    As for Bioshock, yeah I beat it...Its a good game, slightly frustrating at times, but a good one none the less...Did you harvest or save?

    Save. When a game can be funny I'll be bad but the rest of the time I just kind of want to do good. Something tells me I am screwed if I save them (don't tell me!) but I'd feel bad if I harvested.

    More went (which was probably the coolest thing ever - our community hour was packed! Wil Wheaton, Mega64, G4, unannounced community folk I met at the booth who were absolutely amazing!) I kind of thought it would just be chilled and laid back but it turned out to be packed with awesomosity. I got a whole bunch of pics back and thinking back it was one of the funnest nights I have ever been privy to.

    Of note - I had lunch with Smidget on Saturday. He is awesome. Turns out he is amazing at our game. I should take him on the road to demo the drums!

    I feel bad harvesting. I only save. Plus that mega cool 100 point acheievement at the end doesnt hurt either.

    I'm sure he wouldn't mind that at all...rad dude Smidget is...

    The whole community event was the essence of awesome really...too bad it only lasted for two hours...but it was a killer two hours...

    Best part? It was only supposed to last one hour! You can't stop an HMX party!

    You did though...you were forced to stop it by the man! but to see Mr. Coulton so i guess it worked out...
  • edited August 2007
    I like to think the party just moved to the main concert hall. ;)

    That is a way to go with it...i woudl say it worked out quite well...i talked to Mr. Wheaton during the concert, he just showed up behind me about half-way through Frontalot...

    Man that's so awesome... I'm happy for everyone who got to go. Sad for me though :( I try to live vicariously through all of you through the many pics and vids from the show. Well, since the shirts are limited... anyone who got one at the show (or stickers, I love stickers too!) wanna sell it to me?!?! lol

    Seriously I'll but a shirt or stickers from anyone whos got 'em!

    Why oh why do you taunt me so, haha. Lunch was splendid, thnx again for the time :)


    During the community sesh I remember looking at the time around 7 and thinking "man that felt fast" then 7:15 came...then 7:30...then 7:45..lol. I loved how everyone was rocking out and having a great time together, regardless of not knowing who each other was. Everyones energy was so high it was like a big buzz fest on RB; friggin great!

    I wanted to go to the concert, maaan did I want to go. But I had to ride the bus back to my brothers place (an hour bus ride) and couldn't risk staying too long and missing the last bus. It would've been cool to chill with PsycoCheerio some more; he's a kewl cat.

    Actually fact is its more rewarding to save them as far as ADAM goes, because you get extra plasmids and such.

    I noticed the use of stickers too but seriously I would have paided for a Rock Band shirt.

    I'm also kicking myself that I didn't get more stickers. I only took one of each (I'm Canadian and my politeness can be annoying, even to me); My husband took them all and put them on his Bass case when we got home.

    You totally should have taken more! Also - Vancouver was very much represented at PAX both in attendees and developers. That ruled.

    Hey Sean, I saw a video of you singing "Mississippi Queen", you were pretty much dead on with the vocals, nice job! It would be cool if your band came down to Orlando and I could get some more professional photographs of your group, make your simple Rock Band band look awesome.
