  1. I am pretty sure a lot of people actually skipped other conventions or expenses this year just so they CAN go to Otakon. Last year was my first otakon and i couldn't imagine missing out on it. I will be there if i have to pay with pennies found on the sidewalk.

    BUT luckily i won't have to do that because 7 months of job hunting FINALLY paid off!

  2. So i've been pretty busy (you know that life thing...), so forgive me if this prereg question has been answered, but when does it close?

    But atleast i am all ready for the con. I ran out of moneys so i couldn't do a new costume. :'( I am lucky I am even going.

    (figured this thread would be good since its a pre-2009 thread)

  3. oh man no love for the 360! Playing on 360 is a blast. 2fort, 16 players, no time limit. I basically just run around and kill everything insight. Pretty much just death matching. The players on PC are SO much better than on xbox, so if you want to own anything that comes near you, i suggest 360 TF2.

    On that note, i FULLY agree that tf2 on the 360 (the game itself) is total garbage compared to PC. I mean, you can still launch people with medic needles. And you can get into BLU's spawn on 2fort. Seriously, they need to patch this thing. Not to mention, i want a sandvich.

  4. There were a whole bunch of TF2 cosplayers last year, so i assume you all actually play the game. So do you play on PC, Xbox, or PS3? Whats your Steam ID or Gamertag? Lets get an Otakon game going!

    I play both PC and Xbox (right now xbox because my PC is sort of on the fritz). My xbox gamertag is abubacar and my steam id is also abubacar.

    Add me and lets play some tf2~

  5. Like everyone said, its up to you! I personally only wore 1 costume last year. Sort of. I was the Scout from TF2 who's costume consists of basically pants and a tshirt (either blue or red). So on friday i was wearing my red shirt and saturday i was blue. But really my stuff wasn't stinky anyway.

    Wear your costume as much as you like, but remember to bring some anti-stink stuff and a change of plain-clothes.

  6. I thought 3PM was pretty much standard, most people don't really stay that late anyway. I know my hotel checkout was at noon, so we left around 1. Not much to do IMO.

    Between noon and 3, we had 5 rooms running live programming, all of our video theatres running, major autograph sessions, all the exhibit halls (dealers and artists) open and running at capacity, our closing ceremonies and con feedback sessions, and three musical acts performing. That's more than many conventions have all weekend...

    But as we say, you make your own con experience.

  7. If only i could hear a dnb remix of "the duel of the fates" from Star Wars... That would probably make my night. hahaha.

    Found it! I'm having someone rip it from vinyl as we speak and I'm hitting up the remixer to make sure I can play it. If it's fine (I'm sure it will be) it'll probably be what I open my set with. I go on right after Maiku on Friday night. ^_^

    Hahaha thats awesome! I was just sort of wishfully thinking, but now you know i have to go see your set now. Haha. i look forward to it.

  8. The raddison was a pretty nice hotel. Rooms had ample floor space, but the beds were a little small (i wouldnt really want to double up in one with someone (unless we were very close XD)). But the hotel had really good placement too. Walking back from the con, if you took a left, it would take you to the hotel, if you took a right there was a tasty subway there. I liked it.

  9. Why am I not receiving alerts to this thread being updated? :)

    I'm the drummer unless someone is desperate for a bass player.

    So far I know six songs me and at least two other people wanted to do:

    * Haruka Kanata

    * Rewrite

    * Ichirin no Hana (full version???)

    * Last Dinosaur

    * Stay Away

    * Real Folk Blues

    I'm a bit worried about 'Hana and 'Blues because they're not as straightforward as the others. I guess I just want to be sure everyone playing those songs knows the actual chords and such (let's face it: Yoko Kanno has a bent for jazz).

    Anywho,...who is willing to meet on Thursday so we know who is "serious" about performing? :D
