Traveling to PAX Today

August 28, 2008 -

Sorry for the lack of stories today... Had an early flight to PAX, including a mid-day change of planes in Detroit.

I'm in the cab at the Seattle Airport, and will get some GP goodness posted a little later...

Hey Dennis, if you come back through Detroit again, here's what you need to do:

Find the monorail.  Go to McDonalds.  Get some burgers, nuggets, whatever.  Go to monorail, ride back and forth while waiting for your flight.  A friend of mine did this and pretty much watched human interaction at its finest for three hours when our flight was delayed once.

Look for the guy wearing the purple dinner jacket and black hat with a bunch of "hello my name is" stickers :D I'll buy you a drink :D

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Lucky. I wanted to go to PAX. :(

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Stop by the Flying Lab booth and say hi to the guy dressed as the British Naval officer. :)

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

I was wondering how long it would take you.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Have fun. Let's hope PAX won't be the disappointment that E3 was.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

I don't think anything could have been more of a disappointment than was E3 was this year.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

We love you enough that it's okay, haha.  I had to flush my computer and reinstall my OS.  So I am still in the process of reinstalling all of my software...  (FTP, Firefox, web/game dev stuff, games...)

My freakin ethernet wasn't recogized by my OS, so I had to go online with my girlfriend's computer and download the driver...  it still wont play sound yet...  This computer is nearing it's end as a primary machine after 5 years and minor upgrades (more RAM, but thats it)...  Pretty damn good for a PC if you ask me.  I have only seen Macs last longer...  One at my work is 8 years old, no upgrades...

Time to build a computer...  NewEgg, here I come!

Anyways, have fun man, let us know of your travels.  In a year or 2 I'll prolly see you there.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Good luck at PAX. I wish I can go there. Please look for World Of Goo because I want that game so badly.

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilsonis it any good?07/28/2014 - 9:36pm
Papa Midnight"Love Child" on HBO -- anyone else watching this?07/28/2014 - 9:27pm
MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenWell, Mega Man 1 - 4, X and X2 are already on there and the first Battle Network is due out July 31st.07/27/2014 - 6:16pm
