I forgot to mention this sooner, but I'm going to the Penny Arcade Expo in August. If you haven't pre-registered online (pre-registration ended on June 1st), you can still pay $50 at the door to go. Head over to Penny Arcade (click on the PAX banner) for more info. I think PAX is like E3 for the gamers as opposed to the media, so I'm really excited.
If any of you readers out there are going to PAX, let me know--we'll try to meet up, and it shall be glorious!
