SDCC 2014: Saturday

San Diego Comic Con can really take a toll on you. We've felt nothing but exhaustiveness the past days being here - But in a good way! There is so much to do! We all woke up early enough to finally play the Borderlands laser tag over at the Nerd HQ. We still had an hour to kill before we played so I started checking out the cosplay parade!
They were passing out these really awesome looking Guardian Of The Galaxy posters, too! I'll be sure to show you guys in my video haul for SDCC :)

SDCC 2014: Friday

It felt so amazing to sleep in on Friday. We were so burnt out from the day before and it was only day one in San Diego! After getting ready and waking up, we took a taxi to the convention and decide to hit up some free events. One of our first activities was to check out the Nintendo event over at the Marriott hotel.
There were so many different games to try out from Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, Just Dance 2015 and a TON more great games. It was also being live streamed on Nintendo's Twitch channel. There were so many people that we never got around to trying out the games - only checking out the event. We took a quick food intermission at the Old Spaghetti Factory! It was packed out with all the comic-con goers but luckily it didn't take long for us to get seated. I highly recommend checking out this place! I was pleased with their appetizer/meal/dessert section in their menu. I spent a satisfying $15 and felt I got my moneys worth.

After our delicious lunch, we headed to the Nerd HQ!

SDCC 2014: Thursday

Yesterday night I arrived in San Diego. It was a long flight due to a few delays but I was so happy to finally land! I already knew Thursday was going to be a busy day. We got 4 hours of sleep that night and went straight to the convention around 5:30am. First things first! I needed to pick up my badges. sdcc-thurs-01 It was about an hour until the line started moving (I won't get started on the long lines...) and I was able to get my Thursday and Sunday badges. I was glad to be able to find/meet up with my friends and we waited a little bit longer for the convention doors to open.

SXSW Nerdist LIVE Podcast

(UPDATED on 6/12/13 - You can now hear the full podcast on SoundCloud, click here!

On Wednesday, I attended the Nerdist Live Podcast at the Waller Creek Boathouse. RoosterTeeth were also part of the podcast as guests - Those guys are hilarious!

My friend contacted me the night before saying how they were going to do a live podcast for SXSW. I've never been to a live podcast session and I'm really happy my first one was for Nerdist and the guys of RoosterTeeth. Oh man, the things they talked about... One minute it's dissing traffic to QR codes to gloryholes! ha! Classic, hilarious, and very random which made it great.
