Scenes From PAX West 2016!

I finally “cracked the code” that allowed me to download my pictures from cell-phone to computer…success, in spite of Mercury Retrograde!

Please enjoy these select scenes from PAX West 2016, held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington from Friday, 2 September – Monday, 5 September. It was crowded as hell, and the Friday traffic was the worst – we had to drive through three different parking garages until we found one that had spaces left! $27 – $30 (USD) per day, all four days…parking cost the most, I think!

The game “Magic: The Gathering” had something going on at the Paramount Theatre, just up the block. This moving sculpture was leading a parade up the street:

Inside, these two struck a pose:

…and this guy was trying out a Virtual Reality (VR) game:

Took a break for lunch at the Daily Grill, an excellent restaurant to stop in at for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This appetizer was divine: lightly seared ahi tuna crusted with sesame seeds; pickled cucumber, pickled ginger, and deep-fried spinach…it was fantastic!

Back inside, I saw some cool sculptures that commanded attention:

…and, I met a fellow ESO gamer who was more than happy to join my tiny guild – meet Morgueblade!

Here are some random shots of the Bethesda room, where all of the ESO stuff was going on:

…and finally, a few pictures of the team that puts this awesome game together! It was neat to meet them face-to-face and talk with them…they’re a decent bunch of people!

That’s all for now…I hope that you liked the pictures!
