Vegas Highlights and Pre-BlizzCon

Good news! I survived Sin City! It was my first time (ever) to Vegas. I learned how to play Craps. It ended up only being a 20 dollar lesson (I was up to 90 and I shoulda cashed out, whoops). Had a really awesome time though. There were all these people on the streets handing me these trading cards. I think its some kinda new game of sorts. I really wanted to watch some shows but I didn’t have time for that. Ended up walking the length of the strip and checking out the different outdoorsy things (Bellagio fountain show and the pirate show in front of Mirage). I may also have been prepositioned by a young lady as I was heading back to my room. Alas, I turned her down.

I’ll have some pictures up later.

We arrived in Anaheim a day early. After settling in, we hustled over to the Hilton. And who’d I run into? The VP and marketing guys for Bungie (Yeah, Halo)! We started talking (and the guy bought me a drink, real nice of him, thanks Jack Black)! Looks like they’ll have a booth in the area. Will need to check that out.

BlizzCon starts tomorrow Friday. The big WoW Insider party’s tonight and I’ll be there mingling. If you plan to buy me a drink, better make sure I can handle it. My tolerance isn’t quite there sadly :(.

My panels of interest:

– Class Talent system
– Dungeons and raids
– 4.3 raid and Deathwing
– Warcraft Future Features

Which panels are you anticipating the most?

If you’re in the area and you want to say hi, just go ahead and add me to Twitter @Matticus and shoot me a message. Enjoy the con!

  1. So you wrote an article to tell everyone how you had a girl who wanted to sleep with you… and you said no.

    Good job.

  2. I want to go to Blizzcon so bad 🙁

    Oh well, next best thing? Virtual ticket! While providing LiveBlog coverage of the event.

    I’m most interested in the Main Stage (WoW events) and bits here and there on D3/SC2. Not to concerned about the tournaments, though I may have a look out of curiosity. Oh and.. FOO FIGHTERS!

    Anyway, have fun and post up what the event was like!

  3. Good times! I’d say hit me up while you are in town but I imagine you will be super busy. Can’t wait to read the reviews!

  4. He said prepositioned not propositioned… girl just wanted to talk grammar with him.

  5. Oddly enough CJ I was going to say the same thing. She may have only wanted to go in, by, through, or even past his room.

    Prepositions are great. Propositions are even better, but yeah for Matt showing self restraint! You should only have STDs if your tanking, not from vegas
