SXSW Gaming Expo 2015

March 15th, 2015
This weekend I was able to attend the SXSW Gaming Expo & the Nerdist + Geek&Sundry + Smart Girls event!
To make my weekend even better, my best friend from out-of-town was able to visit. Even though it was literally for a day and a half, we still had a great time. I wish she could've stayed longer! Sadly on Friday, I wasn't able to do any SXSW events since I had to work. I was so ready for Saturday to come along!

Saturday Highlights

  • Ran into Kelli Nova and the Weird Girls team!
  • Met Felicia Day, of Geek & Sundry. She was so sweet!
  • Snapped a picture with some of the girls of RWBY, Arryn Zech & Kara Eberle!
  • Attended the TellTale Games panel & saw the preview to the next episode of Tales from the Borderlands.
  • Bought some geek apparel + more free stuff!
sxswgaming-03 The best highlights of all were hanging out with my buddies throughout the weekend. I'm happy they enjoyed themselves. We've all been pretty busy with our jobs so it was awesome to hang out with them. I got a lot of freebies at the expo so I'll be hosting a small giveaway via Twitch really soon! I also have a few Mockingjay posters to give out as well. sxswgaming-04

There's still a week ahead of SXSW music events - we'll see if I can attend any of those. Hope everyone has a safe Spring Break!! What are your plans? :)
