Hanging at SXSW

sxswSo I’ve been at South By Southwest all weekend, and it’s been great. No, I’m not here for SFF stuff, I’m actually here on business for my job. I’ve been hanging out at lots of cool panels about social media and the like. Right now I’m sitting at the Dead Space panel that EA is doing about its cross-over media platforms that they marketed Dead Space with.

I haven’t played the game yet, but I really need to. I’m kind of a big little girl when it comes to playing horror games, and I seriously scream like a fool. I have no doubt that this will be any different when I play Dead Space, but brave those dark corridors I must, for the good of my gaming health. Even at the detriment of my psychological health.

Yesterday I experienced an exciting but strange “first”. Walking around downtown Austin towards my hotel room, I came across the line for the Digg party, and was stopped by two awesome dudes that happened to be Smooth Few Films fans. It was wild that they recognized me, and I probably looked like a dork with my laptop and my rain stuff, but it was really cool to get to talk to some fans face to face. It made my day, and Stephan and Casey were two cool dudes to boot. Thanks, guys.

Also, much thanks for the comments on Episode 6. The ground work has finally been laid for Season 2, and things kind of go into face-rocking mode from here on out, officially.

    I’ve been to Austin a few times, and I’ll say you can find some strange fellows downtown. One of my friends saw a guy with a mohawk and a man purse. I also saw a chick who had half of her hair buzzed and black and the other half green.

    Thanks Eddy for the mention, it was quit a surprise to meet you standing in line for Digg Shindigg. It was my roommate who spotted ya walking towards us and he has only seen Web Zeros a few times. But still Web Zeros is really funny and Leet World is so good. You guys know how to keep peeps on the edge of their seat at the end of every episode. Speaking of Web Zeros…next episode!? lol Thanks again Eddy, very thrilled to see the post. HAHA

    I’ve heard Dead Space sucks ass. And it’s not even scary. It just startles. Also Yathzee says it’s repetetive and broken and nothing that you haven’t seen before.

    While Yahtzee is funny, I don’t really listen to him for actual reviews. This guy’s job is to find things he hates about every major video game. Not exactly the best source of a legit review, in my mind.
